Stop comparing this game to the last of us. Stop using excuses for games that are judged wrongly for cloning another game(which it isn't). This game was unique and stomps on many other games that are trying to be like call of duty, destiny, and Mass effect. Last of us is a wonderful game but there is nothing similar to this whatsoever. This is something new and it certainly deserves to be it's own game.

I do not agree that this is a master piece. There are small things in the game that ruins it.

Hats off to them for trying something new. I don't care for the game, but I am glad they cared enough to keep it fresh. I'm glad it did well.

This was so much more than a game this was an experience that everyone needs to have. Trust me after you’ve completed this game it will stick with you. VERY few games have made me say that apart from horizon zero dawn, the last of us, uncharted 4. I will say this even though this game is one of my favourites of all time it can tend to drag on at some points and I think the game could’ve done without them but that’s just my opinion. Simply one of the best games ever made and will NEVER be forgotten.

I guess my only complain with this game is the lack of true bosses and variety of finishing style/animations.Probably becoz this is just the introduction to Norse myth and will face enormous giants/gods in the future.

I bought a PS4 a little over a month ago after I heard about this game along with Detroit Become Human. Both games are amazing!
There is one piece of exposition I didn’t like the presentation of. The rest is fantastic.

This is this years BOTW but far surpasses it in terms of story, character, graphics, combat, etc. Have not been this emotionally rattled by a game since The Last Of Us

I'd give it an 9.5/10 only because of the fact the mom has almost little to non back story and they don't really talk about her even though the whole point of the game is spreading her ashes

"Bloodthirsty warrior cliché" I'm guessing it's normal to see a character that is full of madness and rage, killing gods. I don't understand how Kratos is a cliché. Sure, his outrage is a cliché but what he did and accelerated to do is get stronger by killing monsters, Titans, and Gods by obtaining magic and badass weapons. Kratos is more of a memorable and original character.

Why the hell can't they just get a native Greek who speaks English to voice Kratos, so we can get that Greek accent?

One of the greatest games I've ever played. Incredible storyline and graphics, I love the open world aspect (I finished weeks ago and I'm still exploring everything), and awesome gameplay. I also never noticed how the game is essentially in one long take until you pointed it out. Being a sucker for long takes in film and TV, it's now another reason to love this game even more than I already did
Alessandro Gojinelli (1 month ago)

It doesn't deserve a ten. The amount of times you have to fight the same enemies over and over again is sad. I remember fighting that troll creature (the one you fight in the introduction) around 20 times? Also, the game only features two weapons which is pretty ridiculous if you actually like variety in your games. If they included more weapons, maybe the mediocre and bland combat could've become more interesting. The graphics are pretty good but this game could've been more if they made a better combat system and added a lot of variety to it. So much missed potential.
I watch ye Sleep (1 month ago)
+Aidan S Yeah, I like the game but these are obvious flaws that only a fanboy could forget about. It's still a great game even though (in my opinion) the game starts off very weak but gets a lot better by the time you get your second weapon. Still, I can't excuse the lack of enemies and not only that but the amount of upgrades the game gives you is nothing compared to a game like bayonetta. There isn't enough variety for combat and i am open to enjoying this game, but I don't just blind myself away from the flaws of the game like you do. It's still a great game and is probably the main GOTY for me along with Yakuza 6.
Aidan S (1 month ago)
If you want to enjoy something you have to be open to enjoying it. It's not about the enemies you fight, it's how you fight them. Upgrade your gear and weapons to get new skills. Then watch as your foes are no stronger than paper.

I got bored after about 5hrs, would have got into it more had I not already played through Zelda botw... that game has kinda ruined these types of games for me as nothing comes close..
Aidan S (1 month ago)
D JP You need to be open to a game to enjoy it. You obviously aren't. Zelda isn't a perfect game, its weapon durability system is tedious and pointless. And this game has far better graphical quality. Maybe one day you won't be blinded by fanboying and you'll be able to enjoy all games.

I avoided reviews until I beat the game. I knew it was gonna get an overrated review of 10/10. It’s a great game, but definitely not perfect. Confusing leveling system and annoyingly cheap battles just to name a few.
misfit2519 (1 month ago)
Aidan S Damn, you're really fanboying it up on here aren't you?
Aidan S (1 month ago)
10/10 doesn't mean perfect, no game is perfect. 10/10 means that this is an incredibly enjoyable experience and sets the bar for future games.

Overall I thought the story was good, but not great. The main antagonist fights were amazing, but some of those copy and pasted bosses annoyed me because they were just reskins. I'd give it a 7 overall.

TO ANYONE WHO HAS PLAYED THE ENTIRE SERIES, INCLUDING THIS ONE: If I've never played ANY God Of War games, would this game confuse me if I played it first?  Would I understand anything that's going on? Because I'm highly considering buying it.

Bader A (1 month ago)
I’m confused, how is it 10 out of 10 if all the caves felt the same, there are 5 giant troll bosses that litterally fight the same and like 4 ancients that fight the same, they look like reskins of the same asset... and I’m about 15 hours in and I don’t think I heard any ost play at all... or that they were forgettable... this game is an 8/10 at best.

Here's an idea- Kratos aquires a few chunks of Helheim bedrock- the hardest material in all the 9 realms. He gets Brok to fashion him 2 pieces where the Axe head could fit into. He puts one piece on the back of his rowboat, the other piece in his right boot. He inserts the Axe. Now if he wants to go FAST, he recalls the Axe, which can't go through the bedrock. If he wants to jump HIGH, he recalls the Axe and almost flies, def gets a good height. Howbowdat??

Ibrahim Code (2 months ago)
they should have just made a switch for blood and brutality so that the rest of us could enjoy the full gow experience rather than this PG version!! the rest was well made!
Ibrahim Code (1 month ago)
yea it was ripped like a piece of paper and spits one drop of blood. thats PG. and there is no other kill that's even remotely close to that. all these snapping of the neck and dropping the stone pillars at the end of each good fight were not up to the mark. i feel it made the fights incomplete.

Kratos ripping jaws off of wulvers is not exactly PG.

I've been playing video games from since the late 1970s 1979 the very first game I played frogger and ping pong I've owned the ZX Spectrum 48k with all your tapes what take about 35 minutes to load I've had a ZX Spectrum Atari ST SEGA Mega Drive Nintendo Commodore 64 so I know graphics when I see them and I've played this game while I was holiday in Kingston Jamaica on a PS4 Pro and LG Ultra 4K TV and I had to just poles and take a deep breath and fart out of my bottom at this masterpiece and beautiful gorgeous looking game I have also the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 and I could honestly say the Xbox One cannot touch the PS4
armuk (2 months ago)
HUGE design flaw in this game that Atreus is invincible/unkillable. 1. it breaks immersion (eg. seeing him get hit by massive attacks in boss fights with no effect while the same attacks can KO kratos) 2. it presents a gameplay loophole of being able to 'cheese' the game by maxing our atreus' skills and whittling enemies down with them 3. it just seems like a lazy design decision which removes any urgency or fear that a father should have when a preteen child is facing hulking monsters - a glaring and immersion-breaking hole in characterisation
Megashark 101 (1 month ago)
armuk What are you talking about? Atreus does not do nearly enough damage to take down bosses on his own. He's good for a distraction, but rarely kills enemies. You have to do that.
armuk (2 months ago)
He doesn't need to be able to be killed. E.g. if he simply ran away from the combat encounter after taking a certain amount of hits/damage, then returned after end of combat - that would very simply address the issues of realism/immersion as well as gameplay. Currently he is basically an invulnerable cannon and when fully maxed, who can single-handedly take down bosses. Absolutely breaks balance and gameplay IMO.
Dominick Fischer (2 months ago)
armuk Not a design flaw at all. They decided to make it like that on purpose. There are a few things gamers can agree on hating: Lag, crappy servers, online cheaters/games that allow online cheating, and escort missions. If Atreus was able to be harmed/killed this game would be a 35 hour escort mission.
