Could you add which reviews have spoilers?

Gamespot's review is funny:

The Good:

  • Impeccable presentation
  • The father-son dynamic enhances combat and makes Kratos surprisingly relatable
  • Convincing writing that humanizes the extraordinary supporting cast
  • Kratos' agility and deep repertoire of techniques make him more fun to control than ever
  • Midgard is fantastic to look at and filled with worthwhile side quests
  • Expertly transforms and builds upon the series' established gameplay


The Bad:
N/A

 

9/10.

I'm not actually reading them, I'm skimming through them. You'll have to take a silver bullet and risk reading at your discretion. I'm not going to read them.

Not going to post this in the review, but worth a read regardless.

"I don't usually give scores for video games, but God of War is a 10/10 on every scale I can imagine. It is one of the finest crafted single player games of all time. The kind of game you buy a new TV for, to experience it in the best possible way. God of War raises the bar for what video games can do. It does everything so well. It is the best looking game I've ever played, with the best combat, and the best storytelling. It has satisfying progression, and puzzle solving, and exploration, world building and characters."

It`s a masterpiece, what else to say?

 

It`s just a shame about the trophies though. It`s an easy plat & no difficulty trophies. I hoped it would be at least very rare in terms of rarity.

I didn't think I could be anymore hyped for this game especially since I have been a fan of god of war since day 1 but dear god seeing these scores and what people are saying about makes the wait even worse...

Lowkey expected it be around 83 on metacritic, but this is surprising.

Can't win 'em all. If they got great reviews, they paid them off.

If they get shitty reviews, it's a turd and you should never buy it.

Suffice to say, it's not the 98 metacritic that I personally was hoping for, but it's clearly a masterpiece.

Makes me want to rub it in those people's faces that thought the combat was a departure from the series. Maybe that's what the series needed. A fresh breath of air and a new beginning.

Looks like everyone's loving this game.  Then again, was going to get it even if it didn't receive high praise.  But it's good to know that it's not a flop regardless.  Can't wait till next Friday now :D

No surprise reviews are so high. Hopefully the fans agree.

I can recommend this review. This and EasyAllies are probably the only ones you need to watch, imo.

But it's an excellent review nonetheless.

"Game of the Generation" sounds like click bait, but at this point, I won't be surprised.

I genuinely did not expect this from looking at the footage we’ve gotten so far.

Even with average results I would not regret my preorder. But this just made me anxious to play it.

It’s rare to feel this sudden hype! :D

This is great to hear, and I say eat it to the people who thought this was too big of a departure from the series.

 

will definitely be grabbing this sometime this year, :D

In Eurogamer.es they give it a "Imprescindible" ,which is the best rating they have.

The Guardian (5/5) - "God of War’s world is enormous – set aside at least 30 hours to explore it – but it is devoid of the busy work that plagues similarly ambitious games. Every diversion from the main story is an adventure rather than a task, making exploration worth your while for more than the treasure; some of the best stories here are hidden."

Not posting in OP despite the perfect score, because I don't think this game needs nothing but perfect scores displayed. However, I enjoyed this little tidbit.
