Kratos and his son's venture into Norse mythology is a brave new step for the God of War titles, producing one of the best games of the year, and perhaps in franchise history.
PROS
Stunning environments and detailed characters; Superb voice acting by leads; Sharp gameplay; Brilliant storytelling
CONS
Main campaign a bit short
VERDICT
Kratos has evolved and so has the way God of War games are told. It's no longer about hack and slash, gamers need to solve puzzles, use their allies, and only look to attack when threatened and not simply kill on a whim. It's something that Kratos tries to teach Atreus during the course of the game, and in a way, it’s what fans of the franchise need to learn too. Is this God of War the way you remember? No, but that's because it is so much more.
