God of War (2018) review
Exceptional
by Dylan

"First the moon and the stars will be lost in a dense white fog. Then the rivers and the lakes and the sea will freeze over. And finally, a wolf named Skoll will open his jaws and eat the sun, sending the world into an everlasting night. I think I hear the wolf at the door. "

"BOY ... you sure are missing out if you don't play this game." So, I'll admit, I never enjoyed the other GoW games. There was just something missing from them for me. This new entry into the series hits just about every nail on the head. You've got interesting characters, Atreus isn't useless like most NPC companions, game looks great on standard PS4 though at some parts I did get very noticeable frame rate drops, great soundtrack and some good boss fights too.

One thing I didn't like about the game was the bosses that were essentially just re-skins of others with little to no variation in  move sets.

All in all, this game has set the bar high, I can't wait to see what comes next. 9.5/10

Awesome game. Played on PC. Maxed out graphics. Story, voice acting, pace is fantastic! Not too repetitive. Really personifies a grandiose feeling.
Sony’s best exclusive game in PS4 console generation

couldnt finish. the change of camera made the combat unfun and unresponding and slow, mb it s look good but doesnt play good. i prefer the first over this one regarding gameplay. Also boring exposition and story look a 2010s game

Besides a couple of nitpicks here and there, I can't think of an open-world game that wasn't just jampacked with fluff but instead, for the most part, had engaging side quests & end game challenges that fit gameplay and story-wise!

Played on the second hardest difficulty but managed to get the platinum after dying so many times starting out!

Actually came into this one with concern. There was so much hype that I thought it was just going to let me down. But it did not! The absolute beauty of the game is something to see, with a truly engaging story.  Only thing I would knock against it is Niflhiem…that was way too repetitive and unnecessary.
