    God of War is, simply put, the best PS4 game I have played in the console’s lifecycle. I can’t stop thinking about its world and characters. I had so much fun exploring it and taking on its combat. I wanted more, and the game delivers. After having hesitations about the direction I thought the game was going, I am thrilled to report that all of my concerns were nullified within the first hour of the game. This is the true evolution of the series, and quite possibly the best game of the year. Well at least so far.

    God of War is that rare game that manages to reinvent itself while still maintaining what made its predecessors such delights to play...A triumph, and well worth your time. Now grab your axe and get chopping.

    It has been a long time since a game has gripped me like God of War. It's the type of game that when you sit down to play it, hours pass by in the blink of an eye. It's the type of game that you can't put down; you always want to do just one last task. And it's the type of game that when you aren't playing it, you're thinking about playing it. Addictive, engrossing and compelling; it's epic, that's what it is.

    Santa Monica has achieved to modernize, expand and rescue all what did God of War a great experience. It mixes a more technical and refined combat with a narrative sensitivity that enrich the saga. One of the most complete and shocking experience in the year so far.

    God of War is one of those games that comes along every now and then which you just have to give it a go. It is enchantingly beautiful, has a well written story, great characters and convincing combat. It would have been perfect if only God of War would have just a bit more of the overwhelming boss fights it sparsely throws at you.

    Kratos is back and he brought his son. The setting is new as are most of the aspects of the game. You get to wreak havoc in a stunning open world full of new enemies and other surprises. The Norse gods better hide!

    It’s ironic that a story about the value of discipline and restraint would feel like it needs more time in the editing room, but that’s the new God of War – promising but aimless. I like the new Kratos, but I hope his next adventure is more focused than this, and I pray that it actually gives him something interesting to do.

Not only is the combat amazing, but so is the story telling. The game doesn't force you to go through anything, but trust me you will, just for the awesome gameplay. The game starts out great with the 1st 15 minutes being HOLY CRAP that just happened to GOD DAMN THIS GAME IS GOOD to I CANT BELIEVE THEY KEEP DOING THIS to BEST GAME EVAR!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
    Yeah the game is like that. The momentum builds up, and keeps going until you beat the game after 40 hours, and say I WANT MORE DADDY! It's exactly like that. The only downside to this game is I want more. Like give me more norse gods to kill.

    Es una maravilla de juego en todos los aspectos
    Abruma a cada frame, la nueva jugabilidad es fantástica, ese hacha es lo mejor (el hecho de poder recuperarla como si fuese el martillo de Thor, es una gozada). Un juego que siempre se recordará entre los 5/10 mejores de esta generación. Cuando uno juega entiende cada uno de los 5 años de dedicación que tiene detrás.
    Compra obligada.

It's a sentimental journey to buryGod of War is known for brutal over the top fluid combat, with a dark narrative. This has none of that. It's a sentimental journey to bury your dead wife and reconnect with your son with clunky combat, in an extremely linear experience with very repetitive encounters and a terrible camera. Your main weapon is an axe, it feels very heavy and cumbersome like an axe should, but not that fun when you have to manually recall it every time you throw. All the money was spent on the pretty graphics, and none on gameplay. The level design is awful, it's pretty much a track-based game with the obligatory hidden treasure chests. The map bites off open-world games, but this is far from open world - you pretty much keep waking straight until the next cut-scene. The cut scenes are short and more action-packed than the actual game - sliding down the side of a mountain is much more fun when you can control your character. I'm very disappointed in both the game, and the obviously purchased before the game's release, fake reviews. This will be $20 by the holidays, if you must try this turd then at least wait until it's on clearance. Expand
