God of War 4 Review

Main Characters:

  • Kratos: The main character of the game just like previous games. 
  • Atreus: Kratos son.
  • Baldur: The main antagonist.
  • The Witch in the Woods: The one who gave Kratos his immortality.

God of War 4 Gameplay:

God of War 4 gameplay is completely different from the previous games of the series. One of the earlier edition Ascension, that was released in 2013, introduced multiplayer mode. God of War IV includes only single player campaign. God of War IV will offer crafting resources for the player to find. God of War IV features a third person, over the shoulder free camera, a departure from the earlier series, which featured a 3rd person, fixed cinematic camera. A major change is that Kratos will not use his double chained blades, as he lost these at the end of earlier episode. He now equips a magical combat axe which can be infused with elemental abilities & thrown at rivals. The trailer revealed that the axe can be engulfed in ice, to which Kratos can hurl at a rival & magically summon it back to his hand. The axe has a deep history & link with the characters; it is connected to both the son & his mother. Kratos can also use hand to hand combat. Although you will control Kratos in the entire video game but at times you will control his son. There is a button reserved for his son while its use depends on the context. The son is like magic that is an additional battle resource & player is training him during gameplay. He can fire lightning arrows with his bow, depending on where player looks. He helps Kratos in battle, puzzle solving & exploration. Kratos & his son combats different rivals together. His son can help him fire arrows at the enemies. When facing a large amount of rivals, Atreus will help player in combat. Atreus will shoot weaker rivals while Kratos will be combating the stronger ones.

God of War 4 Story

Most of the journey takes place in the realm of Midgard. At its center is a lake that can be explored by canoe, with a coastline dotted by puzzles, tough opponents, and entries to the map's main regions. 

Bloody and Brutal Combat:

Just like its predecessors in the game series this game is as brutally unflinching as its predecessors. Rib cages are brutally torn open with hands or jaws are terribly left hanging on strips of skin.
