Santa Monica Studio has successfully reinvented God of War with this fun, visually stunning journey. From the game’s gorgeous landscapes to its sinewy soundtrack by Bear McCreary, God of War boasts some of the finest production work on the PS4.
Can't wait to play it!
Imagine how they hit the mark that reviewers unanimously give it their praises. That is NOT easy with a game like this that might be a turn off right off or “offensive” to some.
It's not easy with a game, or a movie, or a piece of music, or a book, or w/e you name it, clothes, food, beverages... It's actually borderline impossible without greasing generously all the cogs in a given mechanism usually. High creative minds often have trouble meeting their audience and trash too often gets ridiculously popular over well-orchestrated marketing and word of mouth through select hipster audiences and then the general public. To be able to garner so many perfect scores is simply astounding, it's exceptional. That really makes me want to play this damn game just to see what kind of work of art it is they've managed to pull off this time. I know it's Sony Santa Monica Studio and they've never been wrong and have always impressed us in the past, but this... this is the stuff of legends...
I got my copy I m playing right now I have ps4pro and 4k HDR TV and I can confirm it is jaw dropping game. The image quality is very crisp. Even sharper than HZD. The ps4 pro's fan is working at high speed and very loud. The game is pushing the machine to its maximum.
im jelly gotta wait til tmw :P

Lol yeah I noticed the sound too BUT it should stop after a while which I found weird, sounded like it was going to explode xD
Sharper than horizon... Is that possible 😯
It looks definitely cleaner and crisper than HZD
Nice man...we're right behind you!
Enjoy it. I’ll be picking mine up at 9 :P
10 am for me. I'll dodge the digital version for this game
I sit about 10 feet from my 65 4K HDR TV. Wonder if I can tell the difference with my 20/20 vision.
My fan is okay fella. Give the Pro a blast of compressed air and it should quieten down a bit.
I have to wait till I get paid. .·´¯`(>▂< )´¯`·.
Real mf life bro. . Patience is a virtue
This is one of the reasons to use your credit card. Ahehehe
i gotta wait physical version of it...i got yday txt message that they have sent it...so better that it arrives today or i slit my wrists ^^
@dekke Be strong my brother. Kratos wouldn’t take the easy way out (:
OMG!! 2 1/2 more hrs to go!!
How many perfect scores is the most a game has got? (excluding Zelda, for 'nostalgia' reasons) GOW has to be close by now!
To be fair Zelda is a great game, but your point stands. Now add the fact that this was re-imagining, and it’s even more impressive what they have achieved with God of War.
YouTube is loaded with so many spoilers and people streaming its crazy....too close to eff up my experience now.
yes literally!! I was watching some videos on yt not even remotely related to GOW and I see videos with spoilers on the sidebar as recommended. So, I closed the tab and declared a blackout from youtube until I finish the game. I didn't wait these many years just to have this masterpiece spoiled for me. I recommend everyone to do the same.
Thanks for the heads-up bro, really appreciate it!
@Alpha No problem man, just trying to fight the disease that is spoilers. It saddens me that some people enjoy ruining things for other people. True scum they are.
Just played up to after the first real boss... My god does it feel like something new. No spoilers, but it's challenging and the combat feels really weighty, powerful and the vibrations make it feel so satisfying. A real adrenaline rush. You all are going to enjoy this.
Is there a hard mode. . I need to really challenge myself
Yes, two modes above normal, one below. I'm playing for enjoyment first, so on normal and it's still very challenging, which is a great thing. I'll be doing a second run on hard and work up to the supposedly God tier final difficulty.
Hard is actually quite challenging. You could be cruising through a battle only to take a couple hits and you're one hit away from death. I've died many times
I keep seeing a bunch of 10s for this game, damn!!!
GoW is getting more 10/10 than bullets are being fired in Halo, drifts in Forza and stomachs being opened in Gears.
Already got it on order as I've followed this series since my PS2 days. I do wish I hadn't watched the opening 9 minutes posted by gamespot. Some of the visuals didn't quite meet my expectations :-(
I love all the disagrees however, just like poor special FX pull me out of a movie experience so do lapses in CG in games. In that first 9 minutes... - what happened to the top of the tree? - how does he steer that canoe paddling on only one side - little to no water effects caused by the canoe and paddle after the initial push off the dock. The game looks incredible but little things in the detail can pull me out of an experience.
The music in GoW is excellent. Out of this world production value
Shoutouts and mega praise to Bear McCreary!
What an amazing game. Go GOW.
