One of those moments that happens with pretty much every game, but you hardly ever see. I can't imagine how that feels after 5 years on something like this.

Been playing this since around 6am it's absolutely astounding. There has been several moments where I've missed genuine combat because I couldn't tell the difference between that and the cutscenes.

Strong opening. Having a lil difficulty getting used to the combat style tho, and having an awareness of enemies, even with the arrows pointing them out.

I've not played it, but, I've seen the videos; the original GoW games had a much farther away point of view so you could keep a clearer overview and such.

Once I started to really unlock the combat options, the awareness issue I had wasn't really a problem anymore. They give you a good number of stuff to handle things.

It does take an awful lot of experience to get a good start at building your skillset.
Though I like that it seriously rewards you for taking the time out to hunt down artifacts etc for gold which in turn allows you to upgrade your gear.

I heard this reviewed on Radio 4's highbrow arts review program. They were talking about the strength of the characterisation and the thematic depth of the game.

I would play it if I ever had time for games any more. Or a Playstation.

It's reviewing incredibly well everywhere. I wasn't interested in it until the Easy Allies review, and now I'm definitely going to get it. I mean, the trailers looked great but I've played all the previous God of War games and while they're fun, I've changed my mindset enough in the past ten years to be unable to overlook the grossness of Kratos as a character/ all the shit that happens to other people in the early games. It's all very 14 year old edgelord material. That said, by all accounts this is a more intelligent, well written/ emotional experience so I decided I'm in.

I'm getting a new TV on Wednesday so I'm buying a copy of this along with it to experience it in its full glory. I also have Thursday and Friday off, so count on me sharing my experience with the game towards the end of the week

The dad in me has been screaming at kratos to just give his son a hug for a few hours now XD
That said it's nice seeing a softer side to him and the digital comic that accompanied the game was good also as it showed kratos doesn't want to be who he once was and let his anger control him.

(SPOILER) I'm up to just after where Kratos reveals to his son they are gods, etc. Wasn't expecting those throwy chain blade things to make a return, but there you go. Only criticism I have of the game so far is the repeated re-skinned minor enemies. Never liked them in games .

Every time he reaches his arm out to comfort him but pulls away makes me internally cry.
That comes across very well at the very beginning of the game, when (SPOILER) the wraps covering where the blades of chaos come loose, and he just looks at them with sadness, and shame. Then when his son shows up, he turns to hide it from him. It's my favorite shot in the game so far. So much gotten across by barely doing anything.

Started playing this today. Like it so far. Takes a while getting used to being so up close to Kratos all the time.
