I had a small but inclining feeling that God Of War was going to be a smash hit and I’m quite amused that once I experienced the game for myself, I was correct.
Before I get into this long-awaited review, I think it’d be fitting to warn you guy’s now that it’s a 10/10.
If you don’t want to read through this whole article and just want to know my thoughts, then I think you should 100% buy this game and play it for yourself because God Of War is a system seller.
(Note: This is a spoiler free review)
Kratos Is Back – Story
For players new to the series, God Of War follows the story of Kratos who is the Greek “God of War”. Traditionally the game focused on high-octane, far-reaching third-person slaying; of enemies and large rivaling Gods.
However, in God Of War 4 this takes a much more personal & environmental turn…
Kratos is a father and a much more grounded individual, compared to his son Atreus.
Atreus is curious, attentive and wants to do the best by his father. Complications do of course arise.
The death of his mother and her dying wish, is what sparks the journey for the unlikely pair into the Norse Mythological landscape.
The most appealing thing for me about this game, is the fact that the open-world setting still impacts and interacts with the characters and their story.
Everything is so detailed and richly incorporated within the story, that I was always invested in what each of the characters had to say.
However, the rapport between Kratos and Atreus shows the true conflicting dynamics in their relationship. Watching them evolve as a pair throughout the story is mesmerizing and a true testament to gaming’s, story-telling capabilities.
Thor’s Hammer – Gameplay
No you don’t get Thor’s mighty hammer but you do get an incredibly lushes, retractable axe that allows you to split the skulls of wavering enemies.
The combat has a lot of depth and gives players the freedom to experiment and keep it interesting…
Atreus can also be used for distractions and wields a trusty bow to take down enemies.
The only downsides to combat is the camera view and enemy variety, which makes the game a little more difficult and repetitive but the enemy AI constantly change their tactics making it refreshing to predict their next attack.
Special abilities and upgrades also allow you to customize Kratos to your liking and improve him as the game goes on. You’ll receive new gear from the two blacksmiths in the game and constantly want to improve yourself, as enemies begin to get tougher in the later stages of the game.
The minimalistic interface also aids in the immersion of players and helps keep exploration tidy.
My ‘God’ – Graphics
This doesn’t even need to be talked about because they’re the best graphics I’ve seen in any console title for a long time…
