Game #5 beaten for the year, and what a game it was. I enjoyed the original God of War games, but this was a great step forward for the franchise. Yes, it’s a dad simulator, but it’s a damn great one. Santa Monica did an amazing job handling the pacing, character progression, and combat. I never felt like it was a chore doing the side missions, or finding the collectibles. The story has many great intimate moments with Kratos and Atreus. I thought the kid was going to be annoying, but he did grow on us over our play through. The combat is so smooth, and I highly recommend playing this with surround sound.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this for any God of War fan. It’s great seeing Kratos mature from being a mindless angry guy, to a stern father figure that has his occasional moments of rage. Oh, and when he loses his shit..shit goes down, so there are no worries on that! •
