Why"s it so beloved? This reboot took a series that was arguably rather tired-looking by the time of PS4 và changed the genre, setting, & combat system entirely. There is something of a Naughty Dog formula khổng lồ many of Sony"s biggest games, & God of War wears the influence of The Last of Us proudly on both bulging sleeves.

Kratos in the original trilogy had motivation lớn hunt the gods (the death of his family) but was basically just a raging psycho: the games largely sold themselves on the ludicrously gory finishers. By the end of the third game you"d killed pretty much the whole Greek pantheon. In this God of War Kratos is in the world of Norse myth, an interloper that the gods want to lớn hunt down, & now he has something khổng lồ protect: his son, Atreus, who"s by your side the entire game and plays an active role in combat, navigation, storytelling and puzzles.

The quality of this game blew me away: I"d played the old ones và liked them well enough, but if it wasn"t for Bloodborne this would probably be the best exclusive the PlayStation 4 ever had. This is as good as it gets for a particular style of game: hell, even the ending"s great. As our friends over at GamesRadar+ wrote when reviewing it at the time:

"I don’t think it’s possible to lớn overstate just how good God of War is; how well realised its world, how nuanced & layered its characters and storytelling. The depth và craft of its combat, puzzles and almost every system it has sparkles và shines with an indulgence và luxury that regularly stopped me in my tracks to drink it all in. Whether breathless and bloody in the aftermath of an axe-hacked victory, or watching Kratos và his son Atreus tóm tắt a genuinely human moment, this is a cấp độ of game-making that doesn’t happen often. The final question really isn’t about where it sits in any game of the year discussions, but rather its place in eventual game of the generation talks."

It would be preferable to lớn be able lớn buy it on Steam of course, because PlayStation Now games come and go, but at least it"s now playable on PC.

To play God of War you"ll need khổng lồ tải về the PlayStation Now for PC tiện ích, create or sign in with a PSN account, and off you go. The service offers a seven day không lấy phí trial to boot, and you could definitely blast through this in a week, or is $8.99/£8.99 for a month"s access. Sony says on its site that you"ll need a DualShoông xã 4 but other thirdtiệc ngọt pads vày work with the service, with the obvious caveat that you won"t be able lớn use touchscreen functionality (as I reGọi this is not a major element in God of War).
