Promising review: "What can I say! WHAT CAN I SAY! First the graphics and attention to detail in this game is AMAZING. Just when you think you have found every chest and picked up every ounce of coin in an area, somehow you discover another little hidden crack with some loot in it on your way out. The art design is stunning. One of the reasons I was so excited about this game is the focus on the Norse legends. Marvel has provided a very limited and skewed version of Thor and Odin. This game really did its research and the environments are rich with colors and honestly things I've never seen before in a video game.
The nine realms are brought to life in a very grand and jaw-dropping way. The story and little interactions between father and son throughout really pulls you into their relationship. There are times when the son acts like a typical kid where he asks if we are there yet, he constantly longs for his dead mother; sometimes Kratos wants to comfort his son but doesn't know how so he stops just shy of putting a reassuring hand on his son's shoulder. Not to mention the combat is challenging. You will get into fights where you are out-powered and will need to come back later once you've upgraded your gear more. The one long-shot camera for the whole game really does make a difference. It makes you feel as if you are there and when you are just destroying an enemy with your bare hands, you see all that gore and detail.
I have never owned a PlayStation. Never played any of the God of Wars. I purchased my new PS4 just for this game and so far, I have to say it's worth it." —Amazon Customer
