I never really played the original God of War titles. They were just not something that ever caught my attention, they existed in a time where third person action games were abundant, and wearily edgy. So it was nothing but relentlessly positive word of mouth that forced me to pay attention to a series that I’d otherwise completely ignore
Through osmosis, I knew a few things about the series going in. I knew the game was centred around a very angry gentleman having fights of ridiculous scale against gods and mythical beasts of the greek pantheon. I was just expecting more of the same here, but with Thor and pals. Instead, what I ended up getting was a very small, personal story with the giant, God of War wrapping just around it.
