Fair

The same thing over again... no better

I loved the original God of War, and the second one was still even fun, but this new one is no different or newer than either of the two. It's just a simple classic arcade game, without much player or game progression. It seems as though they haven't reinvented the game, just re-released the same game we have all played. After about 20 mins it becomes repetitive and quite frankly, dull.

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.

Good

Good for a rental, but weakest in the franchise

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

Glitchy

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.
