It’s already great. I really don’t understand the criticism on the last God of War

What criticism? It was far and away the best God of War, we had 4 almost identical brainless action brawlers in the previous games, GoW4 is on another level.

"Brainless"? You don't know what you're talking about. The original God of Wars were highly technical, tactical & skill based with combos & different enemy types requiring different approaches. Even finding phoenix feathers & other hidden areas required some real exploration. God of War 2018 meanwhile was a literal "spam square to make Atreus rain down arrows on enemies until win" along with objectives marked on the freaking map.

Objectively speaking the latest game required less brains to complete than the originals.

Big swing and a miss. Both iterations of GOW required "BRAINS". They just used different parts. I need that copy where you can spam BOY though.

I enjoyed both old and new style God of War, my issue with New God of War is that it has less enemy variety compare to old games and overall less epic boss. I still had lot of fun and enjoyed the overall story my only issue in the story was when got to helheim his biggest fear was he killed Zeus!!? I would imagine his biggest fear and nightmare he try get free from for entire series was that killed his family.

Nah son

His biggest fear was being vulnerable. Thats such an enormous deal for Kratos because he always pushed that aside in the old games, letting self justification reigns in, until the end of GoW III

And sure Cory bring it, I'm super interested. Just keep some of the budget for more boss battles this time !

Here you go, i.e. me on "give me a challenge" difficulty spamming "BOY" for the win in the dark elf boss battle: https://www.neogaf.com/threads/neogaf-goty-2018-ot-results.1471288/#post-253728309


I'm pretty certain your copy of the game is identical, you just didn't realize Atreus was overpowered. It's easily noticeable on the harder difficulties where the gameplay & enemy encounters are put to the test & their limitations become evident.
