First of all don't listen to critics and others who have said that this is just an OK game. This game has the best game play out of the entire series, fluid controls and the sweetest QTE kills ever. I loved every moment of it and yes it doesn't have the scale as god of war 3 did but the story of this game doesn't involve titans but regardless it has some jaw dropping moments eg. riding a giant snake, hydra boss fight and the visuals are the best in series. Buy this game.

Pros: God of war bloodthirsty button masher
Good graphics and design
Huge scale from landscapes to boss fights
Cons: Camera angles are terrible, just terrible...made me want to vomit from time to time
The story just doesn't seem as developed or epic
Even the bad guy designs are kind of lame, greatly designed...jut lame... Hand creature/insect creatures...ummm yeah hope they didn't brainstorm too long for those ideas.
Not a horrible game, just feels like something is missing that the other games provided. un-inspired I guess you could say. If the last game was Transformers the first movie, this feels more like the second one with the racist autobots.
If you have never played any of the previous games featuring my boy Kratos then you'll probably think this game is pretty good. But for me after playing the other God of War titles, this one seems kinda mediocre. The opening to God of War 3 was spectacular!! and the game was spectacular throughout. This one is not bad, but compared to the last one is just seems lacking. I literally finished this game in 2 days, the only hard part was at the very end.
The multiplayer looks nice though
