God of War's Game Director has emotional response to game's reviews

This isn't a reimagining of Kratos, it's a continuation. What we do want is to make sure that people don't overlook the true ending to the game when it's so easy to miss. The scenery in God of War reminds me so much of those days when I was young, with paths lines with trees and greenery haphazardly strewn about on the ground, and little streams of water between hills. You'll then be able to get the upper hand and deal some serious damage. To compensate for this, you can perform a quick 180-degree turn. The new system takes some getting used to, and the quick 180 is a nice if imperfect addition, but quickly becomes second nature.

As for combat, the latest iteration of God Of War is slightly different in that Kratos now wields the Leviathan Axe instead of the twin blades of the past. R1 executes a light attack while R2 execute a heavy attack that can also launch and juggle enemies. On the way, you'll have a few simple Draugr's to fight along the way, but the skills you picked up in the opening section of the game should be enough to see you through. From that point, each button press only results in a single arrow, making him a far more versatile companion who only grows stronger from there. Not only that, it's a more mature take on the series, with Kratos actually having a relationship with his son and not just blindly killing every living thing he sees.

Progression has never been as important to the series, though it's here that the game stumbles a bit. So with that new found knowledge, we set forth to turn our lovely and expressive mugs into gifs for the Internet to use and enjoy. Throughout the course of God of War, Atreus has ups and downs causing his attitude to change frequently. It's entirely possible to reach the ending of the game while still being under-leveled to experience all it has to offer. The Toys and other collectibles throughout are just that: "collectibles". The biggest challenge to come, though, is the Stranger that appears at the house when you eventually get back.




Yet, the overall added depth is very welcome. What's good is that the game is aware of the fact that it needs to do better by the women in its narrative, but where it lands still has room for improvement.

The ultimate daddy/son duo makes their way onto PlayStation 4 today in Sony Santa Monica's God of War, and in a touching tribute of sorts to his own son, creative director Cory Barlog let the tears flow freely in his video reaction to the game's review scores. "Fortunately for us, "#God Of War" does not rely only on graphics to ensnare us.
