Game Completion 2018 #28 – God of War (2005)

  • Game: God of War (2005)
  • Platform: PS Vita
  • Developer: Sony Santa Monica Studio
  • Publisher: Sony

Context: I’m doing a quick playthrough of the God of War series before I tackle the newest one, as I’d never played them originally.

And thus I found the original to just about hold up okay mechanically (some fiddly Vita controls aside), but it really pales in comparison to the likes of Bayonetta or DMC. Hoping for more from the follow-ups.

The story is incredibly juvenile, absolutely the sort of thing I would have loved and thought was dead grown-up back in 2005, but fell flat in 2018. I did enjoy the way it unfolded, however, in spite of its issues.
