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

9/10 

I love the world they built, all its characters and how the story is told. I am sorry that the game at times becomes very repetitive, there is not a lot of variety of bosses and enemies and this goes against the ideology that I had of this game and all the other god of war games. Regarding gamepley this is most likely one of the best games I have ever played.

Damn. I have never felt such joy playing a video game in a long long time.

«That ending!»
Took kick off this review I have to mention the opening boss fight. That fight went on forever in the best way possible. It lets you know right from the get go that this game is going to be special. God of War has potentially the most satisfying combat ever. It looks, sounds, and feels fantastic. The variety in combat moves and abilities is impressive because it does it in a way where it isn’t too difficult to remember how to do it all. It is a case of easy to pick up but difficult to master. God of War also had a surprisingly interesting story which I did not expect.

One minor criticism is the lack of enemy variation. This criticism is minor because every enemy that they do have in the game is so well done and the combat is so well done that I didn’t really notice until the end of the game. But when you actually think about it in the end there are not that many. Nonetheless this game will go down as a top tier of this generation.

Final Score: A+
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

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,
