About

It is a new beginning for Kratos. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, he ventures into the brutal Norse wilds with his son Atreus, fighting to fulfill a deeply personal quest.

His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… And teach his son to do the same. This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat; breathtaking scale; and a powerful narrative—and fuses them anew.

Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.

From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.

With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre

God of War reviews and comments

Fun moment to moment game play is rarely joined by both stunning visuals and a beautifully realized narrative to this level. God of War is one of those exceptions. Battling monsters from realm to realm starts off fun and just gets better and better as time goes on.  Just as much positive can be said for the story as well. The tale of father and son has enough twists and turns to keep you dying to see more and each pay off is better than the last. God of War has some incredible gaming moments that will be talked about for years.  If my only complaint is I want more, then I just played a very good game.
5/5
«Blew my mind»
Absolute masterpiece! This game is good in so many ways that I can't even describe it! Play it!
«That ending!»

The overall tone of God of war is dark, cynical and doesn't really inspire much hope for the world around the protagonists improving. Those aren't usually things I think about when I'm playing an action game so it speaks to how well the universe of this game was made. The combat is so smooth with it's animations that any frame of the action could be used as promotional material and the feeling of the clashes, especially the boomerang-esque leviathan axe when it's being recalled, are the best seen in any game up to this point. The game feels like it re-invents almost nothing, yet perfects so many systems from so many other games, both in it's core combat gameplay loop as well as its world exploration. Easily one of the great video games. 
I love this game soo much,

My sleep schedule got so fucked up while I was playing this.
4.5!!! i love how the story evolved from what the original series was into what it is now i love the direction its gone and i love love love love atreus. and i thought the juxtaposition between freya's parenting decisions vs kratos' was really interesting it was really well thought out neither was inherently good or bad both flawed.
beautiful and enveloping world supplemented with a great story that links the ones of the prior games in the best ways. combat is pretty good with a diverse moveset of abilities and attack methods, but can become formulaic after a little while once you know what's efficient, which becomes apparent in the late game. lots of uninteresting bosses used ad nauseum, intrusively tacked-on RPG elements that dont make sense, and zero replayability from the endless "moviegame" moments and tedious half-baked environmental 'puzzles' that would be a slog to get through again. also kratos takes up like half the screen. youll love it the first time and never play it again.
