There have not been a lot of great video games being released recently. There are many big titles that are in development. However, they will not be released until late in 2018 or early 2019. The first highly anticipated title to debut in 2018 is “God of War” from Santa Monica Studio. This game is everything that fans hoped it would be and so much more. The graphics are absolutely stunning. The game play and story are beyond what many video game experts thought possible. The bad news is that “God of War” is only available on the PS4. There are no plans to release the game on other platforms any time soon. Therefore, people who own a Nintendo Switch or an Xbox will be left in the cold for the time being.
The game continues the story from previous “God of War” games. However, the character of Kratos has developed quite a bit over the years. He has now truly become one of the great video game characters in history. Playing this game is like playing a movie. The way that the characters move is so lifelike that you will often forget you are playing a game. One of the best things about this game is the diversity of the various levels. They are all completely different and have their own unique aspects. There is so much to see and do on each level that it will take you many hours to explore everything. It is not a surprise that this game was in development for the better part of five years. You can see all of the time and effort that the people at Santa Monica Studio put into it. It is truly a masterpiece.
Not surprisingly, the end of the game leaves open the possibility for a sequel. People who like fighting games that are set in ancient time periods are sure to love everything “God of War” has to offer them.
