About God of War

About this game

Santa Monica has brought The Slayer of Gods right back with a brand-new look, pantheon to demolish, and weapons to wield. Players will take control of Kratos, the Ghost of Sparta, on a quest to take his late wife's ashes to the highest peak in all of the realms with his son, Atreus.

God of War is 2019's Game of the Year, with a 93 score on Metacritic, and glowing reviews. Experience the resurrection of the story of a man whose past he wishes to leave behind and slaughter your way to your goal. With few success stories as great as this one, God of War is a title that won't disappoint.

A Cinematic Experience

You might as well get the popcorn for this one, as God of War works just as great as a movie. Take control of Kratos and travel throughout Midgard, Alfheim, Muspelheim, and numerous other Nordic realms to take his wife's ashes to the highest peak in all of the realms; yet, not everything is as it seems. Watch Kratos struggle with problems of parenthood and grow ever-fondly of both his new personality and his son.

Face Nordic Myths

We've accompanied Kratos in demolishing Greece; at his hands, mythical creatures have fallen, gods, and even the Sisters of Fate. Now on Midgard, Kratos must learn to slay brand-new creatures, including draugr, trolls, dragons, and even more gods. Wielding an axe built by the Huldra brothers — the Leviathan axe — unlock a slew of all-new combos and abilities that will facilitate your journey through the perilous lands of Scandinavia.

Great for Veterans and Newcomers Alike

Many of us grew up and observed Kratos on his brutal journeys slaying Olympians; that doesn't mean that you need to have accompanied him to enjoy this masterpiece. Experience God of War as your first title and grow fond of Kratos even without knowing his past, or do so and feel the pain and consequences of slaying an entire pantheon; God of War is an enjoyable title for all.

All-New PC Features

Originally a PlayStation 4 exclusive, God of War comes to PC with brand-new features to fit the console. Experience true 4k resolution, unlocked framerates, and tweak the graphics to your liking in a way that wasn't possible before; as you'll even be able to explore the Nordic pantheon with built-in ultra-wide support. Better yet, enjoy accessible graphics for lower-end computers and make use of NVIDIA's enhancing AI technology — NVIDIA DLSS — to witness the title, regardless of your rig.

Attack of the Fanboy

"Whether you're revisiting the frozen Norse realm or diving into Kratos and Atreus' journey for the first time, there's never been a better way to experience this epic tale."

AusGamers

95 / 100
"God of War remains an utterly brilliant action-adventure, where the former is as good as the latter. The bond between Kratos and Atreus is wonderfully handled, nuanced, funny,...

"God of War was a big deal when it hit PS4 in 2018, and it still is in 2022 when it hits the PC."

A very well-made port. There are some loading hiccups in certain areas, but not around areas of combat or anywhere that would affect gameplay. Story 8/10: It's a AAA game, so voice acting, score, and story are top-notch. My only gripe is how much story there is in this game. Sometimes it can feel like the story and lore are going on non-stop. It doesn't let you wander around without dialogue for long. It's a good and bad thing, as it keeps the game from feeling empty. But at the same time, it can be distracting. Gameplay 8/10: The game allows you to cancel attacks, and dodge/block or parry incoming attacks with ease. It feels like a modern, AAA beat-em-up, but with some clunkiness that makes it challenging. By clunkiness, I mean that if you block the wrong attack, you can get stunned. With lowish health, you can't get careless, and the AI will take full advantage. If you can catch the enemy on 1-on-1's, the game is very simple. But if you go against a group, which this game does to you a lot, the game can get difficult. Overall, the game is fun and worth playing. I can't really compare it to previous GoW games, but as its own, it's well made and fun to play through.

God of War is a fantastic game. It has received critical acclaim for a good reason. It is quite hard to put down the controller once you start the main story line. It is like watching a movie, everything unfold fluidly and you want to know what comes next. It may not be for everyone though, but if you hesitate, go watch some review and be careful about any spoiler. For those of you like me who played the "old" God of War games, there is a great amount of fan service in this game and the character development of Kratos is well made. Have fun!

Omg, the word that comes to mind is masterpiece. This game was phenomenal from start to finish. The way the story developed and the quality of the game overall was fantastic. I don't replay many games these days but with this one, I actually played it through multiple times. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this game to anyone, regardless of price.
