GoW ruined... Am I right guys?
What did I kee saying? Santa Monica know what they are doing ;)

outsider1624165d ago

This is from pushsquare:
"Guerrilla Games may have raised the visual bar with last year’s Horizon: Zero Dawn, but God of War releases its Spartan Rage and lifts it ever higher."
Another Sony exclusive raising the bar against another Sony exclusive..jeeze. They're competing against themselves here...

noprin165d ago

wow I cant believe its that good

Obelisk92165d ago

I'm glad I pre-ordered it.

Aither165d ago

There were a few skeptics on YouTube saying the GoW game play change was bad, bet they're singing a different tune now.

OffRoadKing165d ago

Sitting at 94 on meta currently. This is what amazing games look like right here.

Old McGroin165d ago

@ AspiringProGenji

Are they all official and correct scores?? Wow.

UltraNova165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

This is borderline ridiculous...GoW is on another level...well done SM!

81BX165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

I'm glad I pre ordered as well. I was a bit gun shy. GOW3 was brilliant, ascension was a bunch of reasons to use a slide mechanic in game. Lol. I really wasn't feeling the no jump kratos but it does lend to a more personal feel. My only fear now is I may not be able to scoop up the collectors ed.

Shubhendu_Singh165d ago

With almost 24 perfect 10/10 scores. Truly incredible feat.

Crazyglues165d ago

Wow, these reviews are crazy.... This game is a must buy if ever I have seen one.. Thanks for posting this- AspiringProGenji

I can't wait to play this now... wow

T2X165d ago

Niiice! Stonemason edition incoming!!!

kevnb165d ago

Ive seen terrible games get high scores before, but this one does look really fun as far as I can tell so far.

KickSpinFilter165d ago

I had a feeling it would be great but this!!??!!

Alucard_420165d ago

THIS IS SPARTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!

Gamist2dot0165d ago

They weren't kidding when they said expect more preorders after the review embargo lifts. Shit.

So many 10s! Hats off to Corey Barlog and the team for such an incredible game! A true masterpiece.

Another great review from Easy Allies:

"God of War doesn’t just feel like the next step for the franchise, but for the entire video game industry."

Relientk77165d ago

Damn frickin awesome and perfect score

GTgamer165d ago

Yall acting surprised 🤨 I mean it's Corey Balrog need I say more ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED KRATOS IS BACK BABY

IamTylerDurden1165d ago

Open Critic - 95

Metacritic - 94

I knew God of War would be spectacular, all the amazing previews and Sony's extreme confidence, but reading about Cory and how he's grown as a storyteller and game developer was the main thing.

Cory left early in the development of God of War 3 and his time away allowed him to grow and to rediscover his passion for gaming. He worked with George Miller (Mad Max) and received a master class in storytelling and character development. I knew God of War was in good hands with Cory Barlog and it's great to see all the risk pay off.

trooper_165d ago

I can't wait to play this.

Aceman18165d ago

Love the fact that Kratos is voiced by Christopher Judge, he was my favorite character on the stargate show on syfy network.

Congrats to SSM on this achievement, and Sony for releasing another stellar exclusive.

on_line_forever165d ago

Thank you mayzaki

And there it is. Another PS4 masterpiece

Cyborgg165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

As always. Well at least 80% of the time. Spider-Man will be next!

The Wood165d ago

Give dude some slack. He'll be playing this before a lot of you guys. Believe me

fiveby9165d ago

Yea I can’t say I always or even often agree [email protected], but I am not going to downvote for expressing a pretty universally expressed opinion regarding God of War and Sony. And surely anyone who owns a PS4 will play this game. And if you don’t own a PS4 then it’s time to get one.

IamTylerDurden1165d ago

I'm sure he'll pop a trophy or two.

I have to admit I always thought you were an Xbox fanboy but now I see you're not you just love games and you play them on all platforms so with that I apologize for always being a dick towards you.

spicelicka165d ago

Ever since I got a PS4 and an XB1, it just feels awesome to have the variety of games to play. I know XB1 hasn't had any killer games for a while but I really love Halo 5 and Gears of war 4 so much that I can wait. In the meantime PS4's killer lineup is keeping me occupied so it's never a dull moment for me.

Honestly I would encourage people to invest in a standard XB1/PS4 (assuming you even remotely care about games on both consoles) instead of getting a PS4 Pro or an Xbox One X. Instead of upgrading to a $500 XB1X i decided to get a PS4 for $240 and it was the best decision I made. Now it just makes me laugh seeing fanboys arguing over their loyal plastic purchases. At the end of the day they're products and everyone has the same options. You could also make other combos with the Switch or PC.

10/10 holy shit! Hype was real

SuperSaiyanGod41165d ago

Damn I didn't expect that especially from ign but oh well. Can't wait to get my copy, the 20th seems way too long geez.

nucky64165d ago

gamestop is releasing the game on the 19th (9pm eastern time.)

solideagle165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

Guys did they announce any DLC, so i should wait for game of the year or buy it now?

165d ago
tombfan165d ago

Cory confirmed that there would be no season pass, the game is even sold just with a normal version and a delux ver with only some artwork books and comic issue (In Digital at least) no mention of DLC whatsoever.

IamTylerDurden1165d ago

That Stone Mason Edition looks even nicer now.

PhoenixUp165d ago

A 93 on Metacritic

Kratos reigns supreme

PhoenixUp165d ago

There hasn’t been a God of War game that got a 94 since the first one

Very impressive indeed

jznrpg165d ago (Edited 165d ago )

Loved the 3rd game. Even though I don’t play hack&slash combo games much. The boss battles were amazing . It should be rated higher than the first,imo . The 2nd was better than the first too

StormSnooper165d ago

It’s at 94 now, looks like it could go even higher.

Krangs_Uncle165d ago

Slap me sideways and call me Odin... Ultra HYPE.

SuperSaiyanGod41165d ago

I'm going to be using Ultra insticts to dodge video reviews lol. Damn this is crazy.

stokedAF165d ago

This video review isn’t spoilery at all. In fact, there is very little footage that I haven’t already seen before. It’s safe if you want to hear the impression.
