The day has come when you don’t have to own a PlayStation to enjoy God of War, cause today it got released on PC. Emotions, a soundtrack that elevates the whole experience, incredible world design, gameplay filled with bloody action, you name it.
God of War has a relatively simple but great and heartwarming plot. Kratos and his young son Atreus begin their journey having just gone through the loss of Kratos wife, whom Atreus bonded with way more than his father. The two set out to the tallest point in all the realms to carry out her final wishes, and they’re ready whatever it takes to fulfill those wishes.
Previous God of War games showed Kratos as this bloodthirsty warrior, whose always hungry for action. But Atreus made him more human, turning him into an internally conflicted father. The intimacy of the father-son bond is strengthened by the single-shot camera style, which, unless you die, never cuts once from the start of the game to the game-ending credits. All these changes make the players feel closer to Kratos, all his dialogs with his son are filled with different emotions, making the players relive those moments with Kratos.
Although Kratos only kills to survival now, the flair of brutality is still there. While God of War is altogether more emotionally complex and layered, its excellent combat undoubtedly carries forward the blood-soaked traditions of the series. This time Kratos has a new signature weapon called the Leviathan Axe, one of the best weapons in any other God of War game. It begins with a simple light and heavy attack but can be upgraded and given new abilities throughout your journey. It’s a lot of fun to chop and slice through hordes of foes with, but the best part is definitely throwing it around and sending it back to your hand, cutting any enemies in its path, both coming and going.
This game can be called a masterpiece. Great action, thrilling story journey, overall a really memorable gaming experience with a super detailed, vibrant, and thoughtfully constructed world. One of the best console exclusive games to ever exist for sure that everyone with a PC can experience on their own. There shouldn’t even be a question of whether to buy it, so our job is to guide you to the best possible price of God of War.
