God of War

This third-person action adventure game features the return of our favorite raging Spartan, Kratos. Now settled in the land of Norse mythology, the God of War acts as a mentor and protector to his son, Atreus, and has to master his rage that has driven him for many years. The game switched from its usual action game camera angle to a more subtle over-the-shoulder perspective. God of War’s combat scenes also looks simple but more brutal, switching from his blades of chaos to a runic axe. To top it off, the game gives a cinematic feel and what seems to be a great redemption story. This seems to be Playstation’s  most anticipated game yet!
