God of War - Review @ VGC

VGC reviewed the PC version of God of War, which releases in 2 days. Note that this is rather performance-oriented since the game is a port.


It’s hard to overstate how much better the PC release of God Of War feels when compared to its console counterpart.

[...] For a series that began on the PlayStation 2 with Kratos fighting a hydra on roaring seas as a ship crumbles around them, it’s fitting that now, almost two decades later, the most important moments of God Of War are no longer found in the magnificent boss battles and set pieces, but simply from the conversation between a father and his son, sailing slowly toward their goal.

I already considered God Of War to be a modern classic, but this new release only strengthens that opinion. The story was already tremendous. The combat is extremely fun and deeper than many give it credit for, but now that the technical side of the game has been unleashed on machines that can fully take advantage of it, it’s a complete package, unlike anything that’s come before or since.

God of War on PC is the definitive way to play an absolutely essential game. It’s never looked better, bringing into sharp relief an art style that’s colourful, brutal and incredibly inventive with practically faultless performance, even on a machine that isn’t at the absolute bleeding edge of PC technology. Even if you’ve played God Of War on the PS4, it’s more than worth going back for another trip up the mountain. [...]
