Santa Monica's most anticipated reboot of their classic masterpiece the God Of War is just a week away before its April 20 launch. The upcoming game's previews, trailer, gameplay trailer, and first impressions were already made up of accolades since the game was announced at E3 2016. The game was able to create much anticipation and hype that fans hunger for more information about this PlayStation 4 exclusive game. Today is a special day for the game as reviews from more than 70 critics were published, in relation to that, let's take a quick overview on what some of the critics have to say about the game.
"God of War is, in a single word, holistic. Every aspect is excellent on its own, but more importantly, it all serves and accentuates the larger vision. Some die-hard fans may fear this isn’t really God of War. I suppose they’re right. It’s even better." - Polygon 10/10
"One of PlayStation’s finest moments, Kratos has been reimagined for a new audience while keeping the best bits of what originally made him great." Gamesradar+ 5/5
God of War currently is the highest scored game based on its first wave of review scores. The game currently has an average 94/100 Metascore 30% of which are perfect, it also got 76 positive feedbacks from 76 critics and does not have any mixed or negative feedbacks which are pretty rare.
"This is how you do a reboot. After Kratos lost his way, Sony Santa Monica has set the God of War on a new path. A more measure, nuanced character, a great supporting cast, an excellent combat system, and some of the best graphics in the PlayStation 4 game to-date add up to a winner." USgamer 5/5
"From its renewed focus on storytelling, to its stunningly gorgeous world and incredibly satisfying combat, God of War is nothing short of a masterpiece, one that sets a new bar for what can be accomplished in the world of AAA games." We Got This Covered 5/5
There isn't much to say about the God of War that will further describe its brilliance. Critics at the end of the day are still hardcore gamers just like the rest of the video game community, they are very keen about the features, details of the games they play. They share their own personal experience about a certain game, and when more than 70 of those gamers unanimously share their personal opinions that a certain game that does not have any form of microtransactions is impressive, great, masterpiece, top honors, spectacular, then that's the time you know that you're in for a unique treat, not unless you have different console.
