"They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and there’s no doubt that development studio Climax has been inspired by Sony’s God of War series for Bloodforge. It’s not just the gameplay that’s strikingly familiar; even the story is reminiscent of Kratos’ revenge against the gods. The star of Bloodforge is a hulky mountain of muscle that wears a skull, antler-helmed helmet of an animal and goes by the name Crom. He’s angry because he was tricked by the Celtic god Arawn. Arawn created an illusion causing Crom to mistake his family for enemies when his village was assaulted. Wanting vengeance for the death of his family, Crom sets out to smash all the gods that get in his way until his hunger for revenge is quenched, all while shouting and grunting mercilessly. That sounds quite familiar doesn’t it?"
