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.

Nathan Drake goes berserk on Scandinavian mythology setting. And it's great! Actually, GOW is something between «Exceptional» and «Recommended» for me. Sometimes it's strongly reminds you, that it's only a game, like when you have that plastic level limitations or your son tells you: «Let's explore the world, dad!». Аnd you are like: «How long should we hang around with your dead mother's ash in a sac, kiddo?». And gnomes. Brok and Sindri looks like the most powerful creatures in a game with their invisibility skill, hundred of workshops around the world and ability to improve weapons with one hammer blow. But still it's a good story and you could rarely find such a narrative about relationship between a father and a son. It's closer to Last of Us more then Witcher3. And good story shouldn't necessarily be epic and large-scale. Combat system is balanced and spicy. Never ever it was so funny to chop and cleave your opponents. From that point, remember dry and stingy Dark Souls or Bloodborne. Witcher3 was bloody and about razor-sharp skills of trained monster-assassin, but God of War gives you real rage. One thing I missed, to be honest, is «16+» mode and gore.

Frankly, I didn't like previous GOW games. They were a bit boring and absolutely self repetative with no new mechanics in sequels. But God of War 2018 became one of my favourite games in few hours. It's a real masterpiece. I am waiting for the sequel

The new God of War is an amazing new take on the series. And while some of the fans might miss the old slasher gameplay mechanics with tons of enemies and huge monsters to slay, the new GoW manages to prove that the shift to this new camera and limited set of weapons was a right thing to do. From the world that feels huge (like, physically huge), zero-cuts story and a great "father and son" dynamic, to the amazing new weapon that can be played in any imaginable way to fit your playstyle - the new GoW is a must-play if you ask me. And one final note - this is a rare game that leaves so much content to be explored after beating the main story, that you want to come back again and again. If you go only through the main plot - you'll only see ~60% of the game. You won't even visit some of the "biomes" which is a pretty bold move, and I respect the developers for doing that.
Literally game-changing experience

Everything I love in a game! Anyone who has followed Kratos through his journey will certainly feel euphoric while playing this. Looks stunning and the gameplay is very pleasant. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, even if you have no idea who Kratos is, this is an experience you should take. And once you're finished with this, do yourself a favor and play the other GoW games, you'll be glad you did! ;)

A strange mix of The Last of Us and Dark Souls with annoying QTEs. Was it so necessary to add this mechanics? The game is still fun without much depth in the gameplay but this FoV is quite frustrating. It’s not comfortable! Didn’t your testers notice that? However, the game’s visuals are awesome. Maybe you can find better looking titles today but the cinematic and the graphics in God of War are definitely one of the best on the market currently. And thanks for the Blades of Chaos - it’s nice to see them again.
Well, nothing new here. I don’t understand why everybody loves this game - the game design and the story are not really that good. Disappointed.
«Disappointment of the year»
Let’s be honest, it’s not God of War. They changed almost everything from the gameplay and the combat system to Kratos himself. He became a daddy that immediately ruined all his image of a brutal bloody warrior. Yes, the visuals are great but I won’t rate the game 9 or 10 just because of them. Better play Yakuza 6 or wait for E3 2018 to find something better than this.
10/10. Every aspect of the game is perfect, especially I love the axe throwing animation. Whoever created this - dude, you raised the gameplay on a whole new level! The combat now is much better and never boring and repetitive. I guess, this game will be a benchmark for other developers.
