Santa Monica took the best of God of War as a franchise and melded it beautifully with the most distinguishable designs of other modern games to create something with an immensely potent synergy
I imagine once the game releases were going to see alot more of these 10/10 reviews. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
I wouldn’t be suprised is it doesn’t hit a 96 Metacritc assuming Edge review doesn’t ruin it.
It's not getting any lower than 8/10 from Edge which I doubt will bring down the meta score.
Edge are a$sholes? or just don't like good games/sony games?
@DarkVoyager Edge is not the ones you should be affraid of ruining the score .. but then again you never know with these reviewers.
Edge is not a real threat to its meta score, Tom Chick from Quarter to Three is. If he lays his hands on it, then it's almost guaranteed to fall down to 94.
Edge gave GOW 2 a 7/10! That's utterly madness, the game was astounding for the time!
edge only gives 10s to nintendo games nothing else
There is one caveat to edges madness. Check out most of their reviews for developers from the UK irrespective of the platform. They average higher than their normally harsh averages. One example is their scores for codemasters games. Higher than the average. . Little big planet team, wipe out team. . Xenophobic bias. . .lol
Edge gave Killzone 2 a 7/10. Thats dumb from them imho.
Didn’t Edge give Bloodborne a perfect 10? Here’s hoping maybe Nintendo games aren’t the only thing they like.
I worry about sites like GameKult who hands out 7s to Sony games like nothing.
leoms They gave Tlou, Bloodbourne & Little Big Planet 10's.
What is it with Edge? Their articles are generally fantastic, but they clearly think they are above AAA games when it comes to reviews, which is both pretentious and disingenuous
I saw a guy on YouTube play GOW PS4 with a Hori Keyboard and a mouse. It played very precise.
Let’s hope so ..
the best reviews are the user scores, you know the ones the fanboys make on both console games. where they score them low normally a zero and just bag on the game and it shows they haven't even played it
The best review for PlayStation games are on PlayStation console. Only who bought it can vote. Unfortunaly It already is 5/5. 🤔
I can't wait for Friday. Everyone is so hyped sometimes I wish I didn't know anything and find out by myself how good the game is. I try not to have high expectation and play the game the way it goes, just planning to enjoy every bit.
As much as i am happy i fear because few metacritic approved troll reviewers will give it a low rating bringing down the score.
And a lot more "God of War is overrated" posts. No such thing as success without haters unfortunately. :-(
And a lot of 0/10 from that people. 😂
Edge has a bias towards Nintendo games thats why trash like Arms got a 9 while Tekken 7 got a 6.
Yeah, I've been looking forward to this God of War for a long time. I'm very happy that it seems it turned out to be as great as I thought it would be.
My GoW PS4 Pro bundle does not arrive until 4/24. Can't wait.
Damn those 4 extra days are gonna feel like an eternity, but at least it will be worth the wait!
Yes it will suck. I'll just double up on studying while I wait.
Yesss another one 😍
Waiting for Friday feels like an eternity with each review.
Lol, . .judging by the disagrees. . . Obviously Nooooo
Gamestop near me will do an early release on the 19th at 9pm. Staying up to slay eat sleep GOW repeat this weekend.
My Gamestop also.
Sweet, I remember when I bought The Witcher 3 from Gamestop. I walk in and buy it, but the guy goes hey man come back in 2 hours cuz we're releasing it at 7 p.m.
same, but i close that night and open the following morning 😒
Gow is indeed a masterpiece.
God of 10's Is very interesting how first party studios under Sony's umbrella are reaching premium standards and making the best games in the industry. Kudos to Sony for how the manage their studios and kudos to all their studios who are the cream of the cream in the industry.
Sony defintely does deserve kudos for that.
Now lets hope that gamers buy this game by the tons!!! We need more SP games of this magnitude.
Agreed people need to show their support for an incredible games like this so the steady stream of top tier AAA exclusives keep coming to Playstation. Sony needs to market the hell out of this game.
I reckon it'll sell really well. It's an easy game to market, given it's pedigree, and the trailers make themselves, it's just that stunning. Can't wait to grab it, personally!
Its not even a question.
This is going to be huge....no doubt about that, only people saying Sp games are dead are companies that are pushing a mico transaction, online future and have no interest or talent to make games like GOW that push the medium forward. Yes looking at you EA, MS, and Ubisoft.
I'm sure it will do really well. It's been nr 1 on Amazon for days.
I'm sure it will do well I'd just like to see Sony really get behind it and make sure its seen by as many people as possible. You know some commercials mentioning the twenty something perfect scores is defenitly a way to sell copies of your game. I have mine pre-ordered, come on Friday.
Sony has a huge marketing push for this one, it's going to be huge, don't tell MS and EA though Sp games are dead lol.
Didn't they do something with family guy?
This game is going to be huge..EA and MS just want people to believe that because it is easier to throw out a middle of the road game and through MP on it to monetize it, and they don;t have the talent to pull a GOW off.
I’ve read that it’s tracking really well in the US and is looking to set a new Sony first party record
Do you have a link? Interested in checking it out.
Retail insider at Resetera said it. That was before reviews dropped, it's going to be huge.
Good lord does this ever look Epic and Amazing.
..EA and MS just want people to believe that because it is easier to throw out a middle of the road game and through MP on it to monetize it, and they don;t have the talent to pull a GOW off. GOW is going to sell a tonne.
WOW another 10! Well done Santa Monica, well done!!!!
Where are all the people saying the game doesn't deserve a 10 like when breathe of the wild and Mario Odyssey got a 10. Oh it's a playstation exclusive got it lol.
They would be called Salty, jealous. Cannot look at this and think it doesn;t look amazing.
Oh, the irony!
Lol the "Nintendo free pass" thimg was pure salt and jealousy. Those 2 games were true triumphant titles. Mayb3 fanboys will calm down now that their first tlou caliber title has finally dropped. Although we knew perfectly well Sony always delivers sooner or later.
Those Wii U games cant even be compared to Gow of War. Those games are for kids and teens that childish adults play. PS4 games push the medium forward while Nintendo holds the medium backwards. A 10/10 for God of War is vastly different from a 10/10 Mario. They are on totally different standards.
Digitalchumps scored Odyssey a 10/10 as well, 🙄 ..lol
Odyssey was a masterpiece of a platform game.
@ Nintendo fans I will make it easy to understand for you, okay. Yeah anyone can play Mario cos its a rated E game with kiddie friendly gameplay and presentation. God of War is a rated M game made for adults and mature gamers with for adults and mature gameplay, themes, and presentation. God of War is subject or held to a much much much much much much much much much much higher standard by its mature audience ..... than any Mario or Zelda game. Nintendo games has more simpler standards to meet.
You honestly sound like a kid who only plays "mature" games to feel like an adult. Enjoying nintendo games doesn't make anyone childish. Please educate yourself.
the 10s just keep on coming.
I had called it when the game's first impression was shown that the shift in tone and style would make this GOW the best in the series!
The gameplay looks amazing too, full package. Damn come on Fri.
Yeah I was adding gameplay under tone and style too!
Of all the weekdays they plan to release the game on a Friday - great decision.
If Thor makes an appearance in the sequel I faint..
The score will get hurt when people who didnt get review copies start hating.. Im sure its a generational masterpiece
FYI, if you like a good sound track, the ST for this game is in one word Epic, porn.
You pull it to the soundtrack?
