GOD WARS Future Past
Top Critic Average
If those rough edges were fixed, then the game would be held in a higher regard. But for what is there, coming from the fundamentally flawed Natural Doctrine comes the fundamentally solid God Wars. Due to the fact that the game has been delayed several times to fix bugs and even include user feedback, it shows that Kadokawa was truly dedicated to making the battles the best they could possibly be and it sure does show. If there is ever a sequel for God Wars, I’ll be right there waiting.
All in all, God Wars: Future Past is definitely a game that should be played for its story, due to the lack of any other great feature or unique aspect. Luckily, if you´re a fan of traditional folklore like me, you will surely have a good time, despite its uninspired bland gameplay and graphics.
There have been a handful of excellent RPG/strategy games that have released so far in 2017, and God Wars: Future Past hangs in there with a nice mix of old school sensibilities with some modern touches that make it an enjoyable adventure until the end.

The general ignorance of the west towards Japanese folk stories and philosophy mean that this is a game that a lot of people will scratch their heads over. This includes those that generally likes the games that Japanese creators make with the western market in mind. But I hope it's a game that others embrace as a stepping stone towards understanding a history and culture that too many are too eager to dismiss as "weird" or different.
God Wars Future Past attempts to bring some interesting exposition to the Japanese folk stories while proving a fairly robust combat system with some great customization options.
God Wars: Future Past is an incredible game with deep and complex customization options. The hand-drawn retro style graphics ar every well polished and colorful, and the music perfectly fits the game's theme. The story is very addictive, so once you start playing it will be a hard game to put down. A little more freedom to explore would have been awesome, but it's not a dealbreaker. God Wars Future Past is a great tactical RPG and a must-have on PS4.
If you are in search for the next evolution in SRPGs you won't find it here. What you will find is a perfectly enjoyable title that, while not without its faults, manages to tick all the right boxes.
