2018’s God of War may be gaming’s new mascot for things we didn’t know we needed. Old school Kratos was almost adorable in his blind rage against the familiar faces of Greek mythology. It didn’t just work despite the fact that he was an underdeveloped protagonist, it worked because he was an underdeveloped protagonist. The thrilling, albeit simple character suited the thrilling, albeit simple gameplay. This new God of War takes that foundation and keeps it intact while simultaneously uprooting the entire thing to start from scratch. It may be the smoothest and most successful franchise overhaul in the history of gaming, a medium that somehow manages to love remakes and reboots more than its Hollywood counterpart. The praise for God of War 4, or PS4, or 2018, or just God of War (whatever you’ve been calling it), has been as universal as it is earned. So rather than just review the game, because my feedback may become tediously positive, we’ll also be taking a look into the secret ingredients that land such a historically memorable reception.
