Why"s it so beloved? This reboot took a series that was arguably rather tired-looking by the time of PS4 và changed the genre, setting, and combat system entirely. There is something of a Naughty Dog formula khổng lồ many of Sony"s biggest games, và God of War wears the influence of The Last of Us proudly on both bulging sleeves.

Kratos in the original trilogy had motivation lớn hunt the gods (the death of his family) but was basically just a raging psycho: the games largely sold themselves on the ludicrously gory finishers. By the kết thúc of the third game you"d killed pretty much the whole Greek pantheon. In this God of War Kratos is in the world of Norse myth, an interloper that the gods want lớn hunt down, and now he has something lớn protect: his son, Atreus, who"s by your side the entire game & plays an active role in combat, navigation, storytelling & puzzles.

The quality of this game blew me away: I"d played the old ones & liked them well enough, but if it wasn"t for Bloodborne this would probably be the best exclusive the PlayStation 4 ever had. This is as good as it gets for a particular style of game: hell, even the ending"s great. As our friends over at GamesRadar+ wrote when reviewing it at the time:

"I don’t think it’s possible khổng lồ overstate just how good God of War is; how well realised its world, how nuanced và layered its characters & storytelling. The depth & craft of its combat, puzzles and almost every system it has sparkles and shines with an indulgence và luxury that regularly stopped me in my tracks khổng lồ drink it all in. Whether breathless and bloody in the aftermath of an axe-hacked victory, or watching Kratos and his son Atreus mô tả a genuinely human moment, this is a màn chơi of game-making that doesn’t happen often. The final question really isn’t about where it sits in any game of the year discussions, but rather its place in eventual game of the generation talks."

It would be preferable to lớn be able lớn buy it on Steam of course, because PlayStation Now games come and go, but at least it"s now playable on PC.

To play God of War you"ll need khổng lồ download the PlayStation Now for PC phầm mềm, create or sign in with a PSN trương mục, & off you go. The service offers a seven day không tính tiền trial khổng lồ boot, và you could definitely blast through this in a week, or is $8.99/£8.99 for a month"s access. Sony says on its site that you"ll need a DualShochồng 4 but other thirdtiệc ngọt pads vị work with the service, with the obvious caveat that you won"t be able to lớn use touchscreen functionality (as I reGọi this is not a major element in God of War).
