Kratos might be showing signs of slowing down, but the God of War is at its strongest and most complete in the PS4 installment that hit consoles in April. The perfect balance of gripping storylines along with fast and furious button mashing gameplay make this iteration the ultimate experience for newcomers to the franchise and hardcore fans alike.
Santa Monica Studio pays impeccable attention to detail in world building as well as character models. The PS4 graphics engine is fully utilized as gamers are immersed into the Norse Mythological world where Kratos' second wife passes away while he is responsible for raising and teaching survival skills to his son Atreus.
The tale is a heartwarming story of a father and son battling through evil and violent forces in Ancient MidGuard. The bond between father and son grows with each passing challenge. The duo help each other in unexpected ways as their journey represents the passing of the torch from Kratos to his young son Atreus.
God of War for PS4 has reached unprecedented heights by selling over 5 million copies within the first month of its release and sets the stage for the revival of a franchise that many had left for dead.
