God of War review
Exceptional
by Anton

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.

The story and visuals were out of the world. I played the story level difficulty but still liked the combat. maybe will try playing on normal next time. the sound track was great and the axe throw and getting back was a great experience. This is a great game.

Just think that soft-reboot of the series that never interests me before will find itself in the dying genre of 3d-metroidvania, which I adore so much.

Pretty darn good. Gameplay is enjoyable and challenging, has depth. The world and story/characters could feel a little more natural but overall it's solid.

«That ending!»
God of War presents an unexpected and heart-warming story in the midst of gore and action. The combat is exciting and flashy, but where the game lacks is the in-between. The puzzles are uninteresting and getting from location to location feels lack luster and boring. But when you're not solving arbitrary puzzles or slogging to locations, the story is epic, the emotions are heavy, and the combat is brutal.
The game is beautiful in visuals, graphics, cinematographic performance... The experience feels like watching an excellent movie. It is so good of a movie that it's not so good as a game. Gameplay feels tight and I spent too much time watching cinematics instead of actually fighting. Or solving puzzles instead of smashing heads and guts.
10/10

The visual art is amazing, the story is really enjoyable and it's easy to play. All you can demand in a videogame.
BOY! I Love IT
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.
