God of War is a third-person action-adventure game developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE). Released on April 20, 2018, exclusively for the PlayStation 4 (PS4) console (see the bloggers launch event in Romania), it is, chronologically, the eighth game in the God of War series, but also the sequel to 2010’s God of War III.
God of War Trailer
Unlike previous games, which were based on Greek mythology, God Of War (2018) is based on Norse mythology. The main protagonists are Kratos, the former Greek God of War, and his young son Atreus. Following the death of Kratos’ second wife and Atreus’ mother, they journey to fulfil her promise and spread her ashes at the highest peak of the nine realms.
Kratos keeps his troubled past a secret from Atreus, who is also unaware of his true nature of being a god. Along their journey, they encounter monsters and gods of the Norse world.
➡ The LOOKS (rating 10/10)
I was waiting for the day that Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™ (Warner Bros. Interactive) graphics will be crushed. Ladies and gents, we have a winner, a 10/10 rating on the looks. I have never seen a game with such details and I didn’t even go on 4K. Yet.
I started my Saturday morning looking for someone to ride on the Wildlands of Bolivia, but as no one was up I just fired up God of War, over my morning coffee and cig. And boy, that was a good choice! I was like teleported in a totally new world, with a strong story and ridiculous high detailed graphics.
I can’t wait to jump on this tomorrow morning, but this time on 4K. If you’ll not hear from me for a couple of days just call 911. I fainted of pleasure. :-))
Here are some photos I took in my first session.
➡ The MUSCLES (rating 10/10)
Just imagine that I have played exclusively on keyboard and mouse for the last 2-3 months. Coming back on the controller for playing God of War was like a walk in the park, and I love the fact that the learning process was smooth, as the game story grows.
So, as you can see in the following video, even a Sunday player like me can hold on the first enemy raids with Kratos, on a medium difficulty level. Here are like 2 minutes of video game play on a PlayStation 4 Pro using an ordinary controller.
God of War, you got 10/10 rating on the muscles.
➡ The BRAIN (rating 10/10)
I know I’ve told you that we have an Oscar for the best story and the best start when I played FarCry for the first time, and I still believe in it, but I just want to add up also God of War to some game Oscars too. I don’t know, best actor? Best image maybe? 🙂
Being a solo mode campaign type of game, with no PVP or co-op modes, the producers were very close on all details, starting from the graphics, the way they get you into the story and how the game is using this to help you play in the beginning, and ending with a smooth gameplay that you’ll definitely love.
If you are into games and you like good stories, this game is for you.
There is also a 10/10 rating on this.
✅ Final rating: 10/10
Woop! You know it already, anything above 9 is a direct recommendation to buy.
