    This game is clearly a 10.

    This game is a solid 10 out of 10. It is a masterpiece among masterpieces. The only gripe that I would have is that it had to end. I'd like to pre-order the next sequel already. Ultimate edition please!Whomever gave it a... Read Full Review

    A good direction for the Series

    This was a surprising direction for the series but one that was effective. The introduction of Norse Mythology is welcome and along with the father son relationship in the game is the best aspect of the game. My problem ... Read Full Review

    THE GOD-FATHER

    It’s not easy renovating a franchise, but that’s exactly what Sony Santa Monica has done. God of War takes things that worked, and didn’t, in previous entries while ushering it into gaming’s prese... Read Full Review

    Greeko-Scandinavian masterpiece

    This slotted straight into my top3 all-time games alongside RDR2 and Wither 3. Everything is polished. Story is very simple but the journeys (both emotional and literal) and revelations throughout are just astonishingly... Read Full Review

    The game was a franchise and now its nothing more than a generic game..

    Poor Sony controller, Kratos handicapped to prolong fights.

    I am embarrassed for Sony for the crap controller they designed. During fights, you can't hit the square symbol 10 times without hitting the OPTIONS button. What a POOR design! It really wrecks fighting. Then you fight ... Read Full Review

    Quite the change from the previous games.

    The game is good, for sure. However, there are way waaay too many collectibles. And there is far too little combat. Most of the game was running through puzzles. Which is fine. There was a bit of fighting. But I felt li... Read Full Review

    God Of War (2018)

    In God of War (2018), developers are fully focused on the history of the world and the plot narrative, built on the relationship between father and son. It turned out, in some way, an emotional simulator of a parent that... Read Full Review
