    Even I’m interested.  Will still wait until it’s cheap...I think.

    If the Eurogamer review doesn’t cover it there will no doubt be a DF article along shortly.

  • Gather (from reviews) It's 30fps mostly on amateur and higher (doubt 60fps tho) in 'performance' mode on pro.

    But yeah DF soon.

  • I want to hit Nordic zombies with my magical flying axe!

    Did you ever play Amalur?

  • Oh yeah, funny little title that.  I don't recall a magical flying axe in that, but it was a nice colourful romp of an RPG that one.
  • This looks wack as hells.
  • By wack, you mean good right?

    No, there were no magical flying axes, but I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    Someone from the nineties must have taken control of Brooks’ account.

    God of War doesn’t just feel like the next step for the franchise, but for the entire video game industry. Phenomenal visuals, rewarding exploration, and a deep, nuanced combat system contribute to an epic adventure that should be experienced by every human on earth. Santa Monica Studio is taking us all to Valhalla.

    EGM: 9.5/10
    Eurogamer: Recommended

    Yes. Like Kratos, the god of fury who must learn not to fear his son, this is a strange beast, really. The latest technology and astonishing craft and artistry are employed to deliver a game of extremely simple pleasures - a wash of new pseudo-ideas that cannot hide the fact that the basics remain unfixed because they were not broken. God of War dresses things up, in other words, but it is ultimately the same deal it always was. As is the way with myths, I guess. As is the way with gods.

    Forbes: 9.5/10
    GameInformer: 9.75/10

    Kratos’ reinvention serves as a narrative hook, but it also parallels the series’ evolution as a whole; where God of War once relied on bombast and bloodlust, now it leaves space for strategy and nuance. It still has superb action and plenty of jaw-dropping moments, but it supports them with a new level of depth and maturity. God of War learns from its past while clearing an exciting path for the future, and emerges as one of the best games of this generation.

    GameKult: 8/10
    Gamepro: 9.3/10
    GamesRadar: 5/5
    GameSpot: 9/10

    God of War is no longer an old-fashioned action series. With this reboot, it confidently walks a new path that will hopefully lead to more exciting adventures to come.

    Hardcore Gamer: 4.5/5
    God is a Geek: 10/10
    IGN: 10/10

    I expected great action from God of War, and it delivers that handily. But I didn’t expect it to be a thrilling journey in which every aspect of it complements the others to form what is nothing short of a masterpiece. It’s a game in which Kratos, a previously one-note character, becomes a complex father, warrior, and monster, embattled both on the field and within his own heart about how to treat his son; one in which the world opens up and shifts, offering rewards in both gameplay and knowledge of its lore that I treasured with each accomplishment. The obvious care that went into crafting its world, characters, and gameplay delivers by far the most stirring and memorable

    Jeuxvideo: 20/20
    Kotaku: Very Positive

    2018's God of War seems more content to borrow from other successful recent games: it’s a little bit Witcher, a little bit Dark Souls, a little bit The Last Of Us, and a little bit old-school God of War. It feels like more of a trend follower than a trendsetter, a pastiche of ideas. But they are good ideas, done well enough to bring a once-stale series back up from the depths of Helheim.

    Metro: 9/10
    PlayStation Lifestyle: 10/10
    PlayStation Universe: 9.5/10
    Polygon: 10/10

    Some die-hard fans may fear this isn’t really God of War. I suppose they’re right. It’s even better.

    PushSquare: 10/10
    USgamer: 5/5

    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.

    This is dat old-style 90s straw: I'm in.
  • Is this what you're threatening me with? Fucking disco lights and a fucking choo choo train?
  • Srsly you're all going to swallow this fucking dadcore again.
  • I’ve always liked the look of this one, good to see it getting positive early impressions. Will definitely pick it up next week.

    You're right. Let's not all jump to conclusions, let's instead take your view that it's wack and move on. Ignore the many positive reviews folks, nothing to see here.

    Having fallen for various gushy reviews over recent years (Horizon Zero Dawn for example), not jumping to conclusions and going with my first impression that it's shite is exactly what I'll be doing.

    Starting to wish I bought a PS4 Pro instead of the X at this stage. The next generation can't come fast enough. Sony killing it altogether. Been watching a lot of this on YouTube. Looks phenomenal. Hope you all enjoy it :)

    It certainly wasn't. Or maybe it was. No idea what wack means.
  • From a technical perspective and artistic way sure it make look incredible but it still looks shit. That's a given..
