    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.

    Kratos’ new beginning is full of heart, loaded with action and is easily one of the best games of this generation.

    The return of the furious Spartan warrior was made well. God of War is already a great contender for game of the year and you shouldn't miss it. [Issue#285]

    God of War takes everything good about the franchise and elevates it. Almost every aspect is polished to a fine sheen, with a particular standout being the world itself, and the new emphasis on telling a mature and meaningful story that explores remarkably complex themes. God of War sets a new bar for storytelling and world building in games, and transforms Kratos from a one note character to a fascinating man with a story worth hearing. If you have a PS4, this is a must have title.

    God of War is a new beginning for Kratos, a different game, but still one of the best entries in the series and one of the best games of this generation.

    In crafting a thoughtful fable about a man contending with surpassing his sins to keep them from his child, the new God of War has already transcended its bloody roots.

    It’s ironic that a story about the value of discipline and restraint would feel like it needs more time in the editing room, but that’s the new God of War – promising but aimless. I like the new Kratos, but I hope his next adventure is more focused than this, and I pray that it actually gives him something interesting to do.

    Il y a quelques aller retour dans le trame principal mais à chaque fois on débloque un nouvel équipement qui peut servir à exploiter le level design plus en profondeur et explorer la map, c'est vraiment plaisant.

    Concernant l'histoire, je la trouve absolument génial, la narration de Cory Barlog est toujours aussi subtile, imprévisible et bien travaillée, les personnages sont tous très charismatiques et l'ambiance est palpitante. Malgré les tonnes de théorie, on ne peut pas prédire la fin. Une seconde partie est toujours aussi bonne car elle permet de se rendre compte que tout était là sous nos yeux mais vous l'aviez pas remarqué.

    Je conseille ce jeu, un vrai chef d'oeuvre, les **** défaut ne sont juste que superficiel.

Santa Monica Studios and its staff have outdone themselves and have managed to create something entirely new while still maintaining the deep and emotional story telling, brutal and satisfying combat,amazing sounding soundtrack and effects and outstanding visuals. A game that Truly defines what happens when a team full of passion and love give it their all into a project. Expand
