Forums - Sony Discussion - God of War early playthrough thoughts

I have played about 2 hours of the new GOW and while i won't go into spoilers, even with the knowledge of  the critical praise I was impressed right from the beginnings not just from the graphics but surprisingly being a GOW game the tone ,what about you guys ? , i will talk more about the game specifics later when I and more people get further into it.

Same here, completely hooked.



Incredible stuff. A whole new Kratos and yet somehow the same old Kratos. Not a fan of shoulder button combat but it's growing on me. Story already had one "Oh shit!" moment and I can't wait to see where it goes.

Graphically, nothing I've ever seen holds a candle to it. I play in 4K mode and, while there's a rare framerate stutter, the clarity is somehow sharper than even my favorite native 4K XBO X titles. Everything in this game is top notch and I'm only a few hours in.

Love it! THE showcase for PS4 Pro.

Got my copy ready and waiting, unfortunately my home office is at boiling temperature, might have to go out and get an aircon unit before I can play it :(

I´m in beginning and it´s already hands down the best looking game I´ve ever seen, and the axe even with only its basic moves available right now, is a joy to use, and parrying with your shield feels GOOD.

Isn't there a way to change that? I'm stuck at work so can't see myself, but I saw a video where they had square and triangle for the attacks, maybe that'd suit you better?

Currently I have my pros and cons. Definitely the graphics is the first thing that pops out at you when you start the game but then again its not like you are playing Farcry 5 where you can basically go anywhere you see. As a 3rd person button masher, there is no peer to GOD on the graphical end. Horizon Zero Dawn and Farcry 5 are my tops for open world graphical games.

The attention to detail is off the charts and the developers put their resources in the right place. You can definitely see that they constructed each area and it pays off.

Gameplay wise, I am not a big fan of the over the shoulder camera. Its good that the boy calls out when enemies go red and about to hit you from your blind spot but as an action button combo masher it cramps my gameplay and movement. The verdict is not yet out until I get further into the game but its not my favorite part of the game so far.

Story is where GOD really shine. Definitely feel like a more grown up GOD game and presentation is on par if not better than the other series. So far, I am enjoying the game and the boy isn't to annoying at the moment. I will be able to put in more work over the weekend and play the hardest mode once I get use to the combat to see how well the combat holds up to some of my stables like Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry etc.



Purchased it during my lunch break, updating right now. Will be ready for play when I'm done with work... stupid work...



Signature goes here!
