    Calling it now, this is getting Game of the Year. I can't get enough. Maybe 10-12 hours in and still feels like there is so much more to do, but I take my time and explore every area thoroughly. Best tip I can offer, which has been said already, you can't zerg this like you would the original series. Blocking, parrying, evading, timing your attacks and special move are crucial.

    I just about shed tears when Kratos is about to comfort "the boy" and hesitates. Reminds me of the Joel and Ellie dynamic from The Last of Us

    Damn this game is good. I’ve never finished a God of War game, but this will be the first. I’m actually interested in the story too which is almost never the case. This is a definite must play game.

    Yea this will probably be my favourite PS4 exclusive, see yea Bloodborne. This is a game you buy a system for, and I don't think any other PS4 game I would say that for.. bloodborne being close. Curious to see if this will dethrone Witcher 3 for my GOTG.

    The only bad thing about this game is that the physical version came with an ad for Detroit.

    The combat at the beginning of the game was a little underwhelming after reading about how great it was, but after a few hours when you start to unlock new and different skills it opens up a lot. I hate that I have to work and can't stay home playing it all day :(

    And it only gets better! One thing I really dig is how unique the fighting styles are of different enemies. You need to adapt to each enemy you fight.

    I never thought I would find myself seeing Kratos as an interesting and even likable character, but here we are.

    Well done Sony.

    I legit had to rewatch some cutscenes from the original trilogy to make sure I wasn’t misremembering things, but Kratos really was a ridiculous cartoon character.

    It is weird to think, but the character’s impact in this game really would be less without all the insanity from the old games.

    All the old games had fixed camera placements that usually changed from room to room. It also moved around a lot for cutscenes.

    It wasn’t anywhere remotely like this game, and the series is all the better for it.

    I fought that flying elf bastard for 40 minutes, and still have yet to beat him. Tomorrow is another day, I suppose.

    I'm playing on easy difficulty and aren't having much of a problem beating anyone :)

    It's been a while, thanks for the reminder. I just remember the level design being very "linked-together", so thought it may have been the whole "one shot" thing as well.

    there were sequences where the camera did track across large sections of a level, I specifically was impressed by that watching a playthrough of God of war 3 recently, but the camera angle still cuts pretty frequently.

    That's probably a lot less stressful.

    I went with the second hardest difficulty. It's been really tough for me because I'm not very good at video games lol. I've managed to trudge through a couple Souls games and Nioh though so I think I'll get through it eventually. It's going to be a pain in the ass though.

    Same here. I also get frustrated easily, and make dumb mistakes. Kratos told his son to control his rage perhaps I should take his advice, oyeee
