God of War review
by Uneducated_Reviews

More like an 8.5, this game is a well-packaged adventure, is like an Alfonso Cuaron movie where the camera doesn't stop following you, an amazing feat. The thing is that the simple but satisfying combat of the previous games is gone in favor of "telling a story" and sure looks cool if you're not actually playing it but I didn't like that you have a visual cue like in Assassins Creed to tell you when an attack is going to hit you, I was looking to that spot and not the whole screen. As for the story is an interesting one, and still feels like a God of War one, it excels in the character department, almost everyone is so remarkable, well acted and well scripted, everyone except for that "boy", is just an exposition device but an annoying one, I didn't buy that this kid grew in the wild, feels more like a spoiled suburban brat and also for the most part his relationship with Kratos feels too artificial, and speaking of Kratos he's still an amazing and cool character. In the end even the repetitive combat, the repetitive enemies (I think there's like only 3 unique boss fights in the game, everything else is just reskinned enemies), the annoying kid, etc, didn't stop me for finishing this game, is a fun ride but is way too far to be a masterpiece.

Ahhhh I really wanted to like this more than I did. I enjoyed the experience, but I never felt connected with the story which sucks because people loved it. I really enjoyed the combat, but found the gameplay to get a bit tedious when I entertained even some side-quests and there's so much more until I 100% it. I also had issues with frame rate holding steady despite being on a PS4 Pro. Excellent game, but I didn't connect with it in the way others may have.
What a reboot!

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.

The abolute madmen managed to redeem Kratos.

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.
