God of War

After 48 hours of gameplay, I have fully completed–or, as the kids say, Platted–Sony’s critically acclaimed God of War.

I enjoyed the game thoroughly. It is quite possibly one of the best I’ve ever played. Cory Barlog and crew deserve all the praise they’re getting. I had a few minor gripes with how the story ended, but having observed the story more closely post-game (by way of meticulous consumption of YouTube videos) I have changed my mind, and since decided that it couldn’t have been better.

On the whole, the story is masterfully embedded in the vast world of Norse mythology, letting us explore not just Midgard, but Alfheim, Nifleheim, Muspelheim and Helheim, too, through a travel room (think: a TARDIS for the Yggdrasil) built by the god Tyr.

Here are four gorgeous screenshots from the game.

If you have a PS4, you need to play this game. It’s an experience like no other.
