Game Review: God of War

Sony made a bold move by changing the formula of one of its most beloved and successful series. Most game developers follow the mantra “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” when dealing with franchise properties in order to avoid alienating the fanbase. In the latest God of War outing for the PS4, it seems Sony was deadest on changing the fundamentals of the game to glorious effect.

Veering away from the ultra fast-paced action that was God of War, this game gives users a more thoughtful action game that will surely leave you wanting more. One of the greatest gripes fans have with Kratos is that he often seems like a one-dimensional character with nothing but anger and revenge fueling his quests. This game chucks that misconception right out the window by giving us a Kratos with more depth and persona.

Of course, the story and characters would be irrelevant if the game itself was no good. Rest assured that this is not the case as God of War offers players a stunning world to explore and an amazing gameplay mechanic to do it with.

It seems this is one gamble which has paid off for Sony and the PS4.
