I think the review scores are what killed it as it got an absolute savaging more so than most other launch games.
    Pretty sad really as MS offered a ton of cash for the sequel but also wanted full IP rights and Crytec turned it down.

    The game is a masterpiece, most prob the going to be the game of this Gen and take over from The Division. My only issue with the game is I much rather the original game use of the face buttons for the combat, rather than using the R1 and R2, but its a tiny issue
    Is the pro golden balls again then, after being cobblers for a while?

    You can remap them in the settings.

    I've always liked the PS 4, but not impressed with the Pro and this new model still sounds like its going to take off when playing God Of War IV and Drakes, so it's up to SONYs usual Pro build standards.

    Will keep the Pro for Spiderman and then sell it on and go back to the old base unit.

    Really, I looked in the control section and just saw a button Maps. Will check latter, when I get home

    I'm enjoying the Ryse comparisons... I'm probably one of the few who actually loved that game, despite it's obvious faults. It's a real shame we never got a sequel as now it'd be on the X.

    Anyway back on topic. This might be the game that finally makes me buy a PS4 (Pro). The art direction looks incredible and I love Norse mythology.

    How long is it? I heard it was a fair bit lengthier than past GOW games. Plus is it totally linear or does it open out into more explorable environments? I'm refraining from watching too many videos in case of spoilers.

    it dose open out an it kind of punishes you for not exploring, I've found tons of secrets and separate areas just by poking about which lead to new skills and upgrades, their are quite a few optional chests that require a bit of head scratching to figure out. Their are also secret doors that i cant open yet. Only about 6 hours but wow its an amazing world and i'm actually excited to get back from work and explore it more, i haven't enjoyed a single player game this much in years, game of the year so far for me.

    Only had time to do Chapter One so far so it's a bit hard to judge. Visually it's right up there and the presentation is spot on, the Nordic styling evokes some of that Horizon-vibe from last year even though it's a different type of game. Combat so far seems, alright? A lot will come down to how the systems and locations open up as the game progresses I imagine but so far solid enough a rethink for the series.

    Played the first couple of stages and I miss the blades of Athena, I found the combat system better when you are unarmed and use the leviathan axe for range targets

    I'm sure that will change when I start levelling up and adding extra stuff

    Visually it's gorgeous and will put more time into it

    Another evening and wow its been a while since a game grabbed me this much, i think what i like about this is the sense of place. i spent an evening pootling about the hub area finding secrets and just listening to kratos telll storys to his son which are brilliantly dry, its just a joy being in this world and ill be sad when i finish it.

    Each location is iconic with memorable landmarks that you visit multiple times as game progression is of a Metroidvania style affair with new ability's that open up previously locked off locations. I know someone who completely ignored all the side stuff and finished this in about 20ish hours, so id implore you to take a bit of time out when prompted and give the side areas a go, their is some amazing well crafted side quests and its worth doing this stuff just to hear the interplay between kratos and his son.
