God of War review: astonishing technological craft in the service of simple pleasures

"God of War dresses things up, in other words, but it is ultimately the same deal it always was"

After so many years, so many games, and so many hyperbolic reviews, I was hoping this wouldn't be the conclusion.

Not surprising, the Serkis clip still suffers a lot from the uncanny valley.

"World of Warcraft particularly. I used to find real comfort in taking myself off to some corner of the world just to see what was there, no real destination or goal in mind"

Sure, but if you tire of this aimless pursuit in WoW, you still have the actual game to play. It's the "actual game" part that I haven't been sold on by Sea of Thieves from the beta.

Maybe you were looking for "anime-based fighting games" or "ArcSys fighting games", because fighting games, generally, are universal.

Fucking Capcom shills. There's still *so much* wrong with the structure of this game, and the lack of any content past the season 1 and 2 character pass which you could easily have earned for free by now (harder once AE was released, of course, since they nerfed the rewards). Not to mention how degenerate and cancerous most of the strong tactics still are because of the simplicity of the engine.

"The game continues to look lovely, too" - the art in this game is FUCKING TERRIBLE.

Still a f2p game masquerading as something worth money. But I guess still a better game than Horizon???

@UncleLou I doubt you will *need* to be online for the final game. Similar to Nioh, the demo requires online simply so that it can be a limited time demo. Nioh demo didn't require PS+, so I can only assume this is a deliberate (and slightly crazy, I agree) decision.
