God of War
Top Critic Average
Despite eye-catching changes, the heart of this series remains gloriously unaltered.
God of War's outstanding characters, world, and combat come together to form an unforgettable adventure.
One of PlayStation's finest moments, Kratos has been reimagined for a new audience while keeping the best bits of what originally made him great.
A top-to-bottom revamp of the whole God Of War franchise that matches thrilling, if slightly shallow, combat and exploration with some impressively trenchant storytelling.
An enthralling experience from beginning to end, with a mixture of great narrative moments and engaging encounters. God of War is a well-paced adventure that knows when to let the action simmer and when to make it boil over
God of War is every bit the over-the-top action game you expect, but it's the story and setting that end up stealing the show.
Some die-hard fans may fear this isn't really God of War. I suppose they're right. It's even better.
Sony Santa Monica makes us care about Kratos in this stunning revival of the series.
This is how you do a reboot. After Kratos lost his way, Sony Santa Monica has set the God of War on a new path. A more measure, nuanced character, a great supporting cast, an excellent combat system, and some of the best graphics in the PlayStation 4 game to-date add up to a winner.
