I am not one of those bigger gaming website no 2 minute reviews here only details. Videogame reviews all the time. So if you are tired of short reviews, ones that don't discuss all the game, this is the right place. No big website 2 minute stuff here.
Coverage includes ps4, xbox one, pc, xbox 360, Wii, Wiiu, Switch, and digital storefronts like Steam, as well as companies like Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo
Buy, wait for a sale, rent, or never touch it. The Patented Karak review system to see if a game is worth a buy.
This game was the second time I preordered a game ever, and by God was I not disappointed. It drew me in from minute one and I couldn't put it down for a month. Only reason I did was because the mid-year school break was over and even then, on weekends I still grab it like a deprived addict grabs a syringe.
The only real issue I've had were the killcams/finishers/whatever; since there's only one per enemy type, it becomes incredibly noticeable once you take on Muspelheim. To anyone who complains about the combat with Leviathan: git gud, you fucking scrub. It's one of the most satisfying weapons I've ever had the pleasure to use in a game.
Well about halfway through this game........I have lost interest. It is a very, very scripted game, even the boss fights are Cinematic. All pre scripted and there is not a great deal of exploration as you are restricted to the boundaries imposed by the game.
So.....lost interest real quick.....
This game is really trying to recreate the dark souls difficulty, but you realise how much they've failed in that aspect when you fight the valkyries. Dark souls bosses are very balanced and they all should feel beatable, that's what keeps the player going, but the valkyries are some of the most bullshit things I've ever fought. Other then that, this game is game of the year for me so far.
I'm not trying to be sarcastic but I'm a very old school gamer and if 30-35 is considered very long what is average? I rarely play games nowadays and was looking at this game trying to see if I might like it because I enjoy more difficult games like the Dark Souls series.
Man the fov is rubbish the previous games where so epic the camera gave you a feeling of scale now its just like any outher third person game.The only reason to buy this is to here Christopher judge's voice acting. Imo
I honestly felt disappointed with this. Yes it's a great game in it's own right but I preferred the old school god of war games where Kratos was always angry and wasn't afraid to display it and fuck up some god wannabe's day.
I felt there was too much just slowly walking around for the cinematic feel dont care to have control taking out of my hands as often as it did and having only 2 weapons and no ability to jump was rather jarring.
Still a great game though very beautiful but felt too limiting in terms of movement and exploring.
I agree. Haven't beat it yet, but that's the feeling I have. I just beat TLOU Remastered since I just bought a ps4 and it feels very similar to that. Very slow and cinematic which is fine, but I wish it was faster at times. It is still a fantastic game so far. If the FOV was a little further back and it was a bit faster-paced, it would be incredible. The devs went in another direction and it turned out great, so I applaud them for that. I can't complain too much since I just bought my ps4 because Xbox has been disappointing me lately lol. I do miss the God of War 1 and 2, though.
Pretty much the only two studios who aren't looking at finding ways to screw gamers are Sony (very ironic), Ubisoft (far cry 5 has micro transactions but they are far from required). 2k and EA (Activision looks to do the same with BO4) they are only interested in pushing bare bone 60 dollar games with micro transactions and loot crates. I am hoping we will continue to have a few publishers and developers that still care about quality over how much they can screw their customers.
Since this game has been out for about a month I feel like I can talk about my diss appointment don't get me wrong this was a good game just minor gripe. Throughout the whole story and most side content you see firsthand the pain and wrath of a certain god of thunder I just wish we would have fought him I felt like it was implied during the game and it was a let down when he didn't even make an appearance
These are by far the best game reviews. When I watch IGN and GameSpot reviews I feel like they are afraid of giving big game publishers bad reviews. But more to the point, they give games number scores. This tells me nothing about the game. I like the premise of Buy/Sale/Rent/Never Touch. I hope your channel propers. Thanks for the quality writing and long-form reviews.
LET ME END THE DEBATE
Which is better? PS4 or the XBOX One.
PS4 and XBOX are good in their own ways, XBOX has bad exclusives, but PS4 have Life of Black Tiger.
So I say to be a true gamer, we get both...(and add a PC while you're at it)
How can you put under cons, impossible to review without spoiling? You do realize you did a 17 minute review without spoiling it right?I'm not bitching about the review, it was a good one, I just thought that was odd to put under cons. Mentioning it is one thing, but to say it's a con? That's weird.
You do as you wish, but putting hard to review as a con doesn't really concern us viewers. Worth saying though, just not as a con in the end without clarifying anything. It is impossible to do a fair review without spoilers for this game. Not a con in the normal way though.
You're the first review to not gush over the game being "one long scene with no interruptions" or however they phrase it, almost every open world game streams in data now where there are no noticeable load times. and the game absolutely loads when you fast travel, you basically walk into a waiting room while your new zone loads. Reviewers are sucking this game's dick so hard that they're looking through rose colored glasses, this is the only honest review I've seen. That said, I love the game and am on my 2nd playthrough, my one complaint is basically "it's not enough", meaning once you've fully explored and got the best fully upgraded gear, the party's basically over. There's not much of an end game. I was surprised by how much this game hooked me.
I have to say that I didn’t like this game. The combat is slow, repetitive and gets boring quick. The camera is too close and I often would get attacked from behind before I realized an enemy was there. I also got really tired of the backtracking that just seemed to lengthen the game to double what it should have been.
My biggest complaint is with game developers, especially Sony. They have started the last 4 or 5 years to make their games more movie than game. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good story, but I don’t want to watch a movie when I should be playing a game. This game had way too many cutscenes all the time that kill the flow of the game and the boss fights.
What really bothers me Is that the developers of this game changed the gameplay to appeal more to the masses. They don’t care about the fans. They knew they would make way more $$$$$ changing the gameplay from a brutal gory as hell hack and slash that really made you feel powerful to a story heavy narrative with a helpless child who needs a father storyline.
If you complain cause it's not like the old ones your dumb hands down the best god of war it's a reboot of the series this game wouldn't of done as good if they kept the same formula ascension didn't do as good cause everyone was getting tired of the same game
ONE ISSUE with the game and it’s really screwed me off.
NEW GAME PLUS don’t exist ..... YET!!!
I done it on the level just below hardest as I do with them all. Campaign then restart on GOD MODE and 100% the game with everything. Bit pissed off cos I just finished it and you literally lose everything. Real pain in the ass
It will he updated but I’m angry cos I have absolutely loved this game. It’s outstanding. It’s debatable if it’s the best game this Gen.
As far as Exclusives go?
God Of War
Horizon Zero Dawn
I mean there’s loads but God Of War really has nailed something special. This will be a game people look back on in years to come.
I just don't think I can get past this FOV. I've heard no good reason for it, other than speculation that it was implemented to improve fidelity/framerates. Any other 90+ (85 as a min) FOV whores play this and still like it?
Being playing this and I think it's a competent and well made game but not justifying the hyperbole accompanying it's release. It's generic and cliched especially the design or the enemies, environments and characters. The money lavished on this shows but money cannot provide character and flavour which this is lacking.
Great review! What difficulty did you beat it on ? I’ve been playing on Give me a Challenge for about 5-6 hours but man it’s tough, and in a weird way, not a dark souls/bloodborne way which I enjoy. Is the game still enjoyable/challenging on normal?
Hey Karak, have you thought about adding time-stamps for each of the separate review sections? I love to come back to your videos specifically for your sound/music/voice section, which is overlooked by all other reviewers.
ACG, I want to thank you! I was curious as to whether or not i would enjoy this. 3 was one of the best game i'd ever played.. and this looked like a real departure from the style. Upon seeing this review I bought it, just finished it.. fucking incredible. Love the video, love your content and your trusted reviews!
I can't understand why major review outlets are giving it a 10/10... Does performance not matter at all anymore? 30fps in 2018 is not a masterpiece.... Not even the PS4 PRO can reach 1080P 60fps? That is a straight up joke. I don't care how perfect the "game" is. If i'm being told a game is a masterpiece, it better not run at 30FPS with no way to get any better performance. This is the same reason I think the ratings for Zelda are BS. The performance in that game was absolute trash. It's laughable that Sony has a more expensive PS4 out there called "PRO" and it still can't deliver a stadard 60fps on a 1080p screen. You can run virtually any game on a PC at 1080P with a GPU that costs 1/3rd of a PS4 PRO. I'd have bought a PRO if it actually delivered 60FPS as standard. But nope. It can checkerboard 4k and lock 30FPS at 1080p. Anwyays. Game is NOT a 10/10. Especially for those of you who want a smooth experience with your premium hardware. It's 2018 for God sakes. Everyone was complaining about the performance at PS4 and Xbone launch. And here were are more than 5 years later and STILL in the same performance boat.
I just finished it a few hours ago. I'd say it was a solid game with a billion dollars to spend on graphics alone that took most of the foundation from Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and ideas (the talking head) from lollipop chainsaw and obviously The Last of Us. The story is far more the selling point for me than the gameplay. I found myself playing just to get more of the story (like I did with previous Gow games). There are a TON of plot-holes that I may have missed, like how did he come back after killing himself in 3? Was there repercussions from killing all those gods in the previous games? If so, what happened to his original realm?
Incredible review. I personally don’t have a problem with the pacing, but that’s simply a matter of personal taste, and appropriately, you don’t place a lot of emphasis on that in your review. I have never seen such a thorough, unbiased review before. Already subscribed and can’t wait to hear more from you!
This is one of the few games that used lighting and bloom only when needed and not just set the entire fucking scene in a ray of light just to say " look here our game has HDR BLOOM!". I love how it balances out the colors with the environment without making either one too prominent over the other. I love the particle effects, it really gives you the feeling of impact for the combat. You can also feel how strongly Kratos is holding back his anger too and let loose in the Rage of the Sparta activation.
