Like the new "Star Wars" movies, the new "God of War" takes major characters and established series norms to new places. Regardless of what has changed and what's stayed the same, it's a huge, rewarding experience. Let us know in the comments section below.
Many years have passed since Kratos lay his wrath upon the Olympian gods.
Then there's the scale of the various gods and creatures you encounter, all of which leave you wide-eyed - particularly if it's a boss you have to try and dispose of. You'll see credits and the open world will allow you to continue to explore.
"I'm not going to bullsh*t you, I was f*cking freaked out man".
God of War sets up a new trilogy for the PS4 and one that embraces Norse mythology and this was planned from the get-go as evidenced in the game's story and conclusion. "This edition of the game comes with a steel book case, 9" Kratos & Atreus Statue by Gentle Giant, 4 Nordic stylized Cravings, a cloth map of the game, and more!
It's still the same brand of intense hack and slash fans have come to love from past games, but this year's God of War is distinctly more strategic.
After a little exchange where you only find out that he's a super-powered deity-like figure sent by Odin, you'll have to fight the Stranger and he's a whole lot tougher than he looks. Money is scarce for a large portion of the game, so save that silver for upgrades to gear that you find rather than new threads entirely. This method will save you the time from having to search for loot and materials if you don't mind spending money. Just one tap of a button sends the hammer hurtling back toward your hands, much like Thor's Mjolnir.
Gone is Kratos' signature dual-blade weapon, replaced with the previously mentioned magical battle-axe, Leviathan. However, the way it phrases this dynamic is weird.
So make sure you keep your armor up. And though Kratos' fists are a good alternative, you're best served recalling the axe as soon as you can. No matter how high your stat is, if it's not maxed out, it will be displayed in red. Once you do this they're fairly easy to beat. The first, that your hearing is great and two, linguistic gymnastics are a thing you can totally handle. We've completed the main story and spent many hours exploring Midgard, Niflheim, Muspelheim and more, tracking down collectibles and compiling combat tactics to bring you a definitive selection of guides, covering all the information you'll need to get the most out of your adventures. Depending on the type of arrows that you have, you can stun enemies or deal massive damage. Without spoiling anything, it is a testament to Sunny's skills that at times I truly hated being around Atreus in the game. To every person who was with us on this journey, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Not only get even with the gods, kill every single one of them with the utmost brutality possible.
This one might seem silly, but it couldn't be truer.
If you are curious to see how the controller layout looks like in God of War PS4, you can see it in the image below taken directly from the game.
Another really important part of the game. Also, you can run into debris in the boat or find spots of sunken treasure a-la The Wind Waker and it can help fill out your coffers.
God of War is the latest entry in the iconic PlayStation exclusive franchise.
