My 6 favorite things about the gorgeous, epic new 'God of War' on PlayStation 4
You are not ready for "God of War" on PlayStation 4. I certainly wasn't.
Maybe you've seen the trailers, or read our review? Or maybe you're only vaguely aware of a PlayStation 4 reboot to the long-running "God of War" franchise? Maybe you've never played a "God of War" game! Maybe you're a veteran video game journalist who was expecting a 10-to-12 hour hack-and-slash game?
Turns out, we're all in the same wobbly boat as Kratos and his son Atreus, the game's heroes. It's hard to imagine someone being adequately prepared for the sweeping epic that is the new "God of War." It's not just a really good game - it's an absolutely massive blockbuster that's full of surprises for even seasoned, cynical video game nerds like myself.
Allow me to explain:
1. It's incredibly fun to play.
2. There's mystery and adventure around every corner.
3. The main characters are actually good, as is their banter.
4. The entire game takes place in a single "shot," which gives the game a steady forward rhythm.
5. The story is truly epic, in the literal sense of the word.
6. This door!
