Twinfinite writes "God of War recently came out to rave reviews, but here are some other games that are similar to it if that's what you're after."
Sorry but Hellblade is not open world like God of War or have way more diverse enemies. God of War also have RPG elements and optional bosses.
"like" God of War, not "10 Games that are in every way extremely similar to all aspects of God of War's design".
No 1 on the list: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
semi open world* :p
Fair enough. I feel liked GOW is more similar to Bloodborne and the last of us. God of War has way more depth in the gameplay than Hellblade. Don't get me wrong I loved Hellblade but they're different to me. The third person view is only similar
When I played GoW for the first few hours it really looked a lot like Hellblade in some places. And also a little bit of a Soul Reaver vibe
The dark grittyness is the same in some areas, Hellblade was more bland of colors(not saying it's bad), They're also tight over the shoulder, have parry/slash/block/dodge, and are Norse mythology.
The gameplay is very similar to Darksiders although with the close camera viewing like Rise:SOR
god of war is not open world
Nice list :D
Stretching the heck out of the term 'like' here. Adding in shooters with no RPG mechanics? Even a bad game like Bound By Flame is more appropriate than those options.
Actually GoW takes heaviy from Darksiders in gameplay, combos, looting, Upgrading, changing garments or armor, blowing up stuff with a specific item. JuSt like metroid and zelda started. Except the camera angle.
Bayonetta and Dante's Inferno are the shiznit
Dante's Inferno definitely deserved a sequel. Leave it to EA to kill of a game they can't milk to death.
They were supposed to make a damn sequel too. Very underrated game. Even the PSP port was good.
There isn't anything out this current gen like the new GOW but GOW.
The Last of Us is the closest I can think of, regardless of gen. GoW is a special game. The new standard for narrative action.
how it is closest? enemies are clickers? combat is the same? or game world is the same? story is the same? played both and both have nothing to do with each other, and feeling playing them is totally different experience. these comparisons is totally shite, GoW is nothing like tLoU and most of the list is crap.
The last of us? Oh yeah because TLOU has such deep combat mechanics, RPG elements and metroid-vania style open world. Sooo so similar.
Doesn't sound like either of you two have played either game. If you see GOW as a hack and slash light-RPG than you're only seeing a small part of what makes this game so good. The combination of narrative and combat in this game is unmatched, only approached by what TLOU was able to do.
Actually there is, GoW takes heavily from Darksiders although without the close up camera always, but when War or Death grab an explosive rock to throw at something they take that camera angle too. Very similar gameplay but GoW has a more interesting narrative.
Some of these are a stretch.
This list has some solid- great games on it, but none of them are GOW.
Kind of sort of like maybe
Hellblade is probably the closest, but you’re doing yourself a disservice to not play God of War
Haven’t played anything like it before, but I would say if TLOU and God of War 2 had a baby, it would look like God of War.
GOW was just ok at best. great graphics, good story but way to much of the same combat over and over.
Damn, Twinfinite's really milking these God of War lists.
i heard their next list will be Random People Who Look Like Kratos!
Half of these are nothing like God of War
Souls games, bloodborne, nioh... GOW 4 ' gameplay is like as them
