The new ‘God of War’ on PS4 is the first must-play game of 2018
In 2017, the game to play was “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” — a sweeping epic that set a standard for the entire year.
In 2018, that game is the new “God of War” — an incredible, similarly epic journey that I just spent two weeks playing more or less non-stop.
It’s hard to overstate how impressive “God of War” is. It is the high water mark of 2018 thus far — the game by which all others will be measured. Whether you’ve played games in the series before or not is unimportant. Even if you’ve outright disliked previous “God of War” games, there’s something here for you.
Simply put: If you own a PlayStation 4 (and over 70 million of you do!), “God of War” is a must-own, must-play game.
A quick briefer on the “God of War” series:
The “God of War” series goes way back to the PlayStation 2.
Players controlled Kratos, the God of War himself, as he struggled with the Greek pantheon. His struggle was often told through fighting off hordes of monsters (based in Greek mythology), often in small arenas — you enter an area, the exits are sealed, and you must fight your way through groups of enemies until they’re all dead and you can progress.
The games focused on stylish, third-person, action-adventure gameplay. There was some light puzzle solving, and the occasional cutscene involving Kratos getting super mad at how the Gods had played him once again, and some pretty massive boss fights where you literally climbed up giants (and sometimes became giant yourself). It was fun, if a bit overdramatic and silly at times.
The last game in the previous series was “God of War: Ascension” back in 2013 on the PlayStation 3.
