    Yes it's having really good reviews, IGN call it a Masterpiece. Just going to make the wait until release feel even longer now.

    Can't wait to play it though, I love the God of War series but this looks like they've taken it to the next level.

    Sony exclusive AAA’s consistently raise the bar

    Never in doubt it was going go be good but this looks like something very special. Shame I'm away when my release day copy arrives

    Wasn't really on my radar but after reading a few reviews I think I'll pick this up. Sounds great.

    Never played any of the God of War games, is it free roam?

    They never used to be but this one is more open world,. World travel from a hub and you can re-visit places again.

    Thanks, looks great. I think I will wait for a price drop, to many games to get through still.

    This game is absolutely racking up the top notch reviews en masse!

    I played God of War 1 and 2, but I never really held them in particularly high regard. I didn't dislike them but I just thought they were a bit forgettable afterwards.

    I'll probably end up getting this eventually.

    By all accounts this is almost a whole new take on the franchise so what you may have disliked may no longer be present etc. Certainly seems less of a fast past hack and slash now that's for sure

    This is a total departure from what has been before. Fair play to them as it looks like they've smashed it.

    Can’t wait to see this on the pro!! Reckon it might top HZD graphically. Loving this mid generation console update!

    Ffs pro ordered and on route from Argos. I did say to myself when I ditched my standard ps4 over a year ago that I would pick up a pro when God of war came out as I should have a small wave of titles backed up in my absence like Crash, uncharted expansion etc so seems like a good time.

    Didn't even consider this as not gotten on with the previous games in the series, this does look like a change of direction worth looking at though.

    Hmm the Ars review mention a lot of frame rate issues on the Pro, even in Performance mode.

    I wouldn’t worry about that, there should be patches incoming to sort all that. I’m lucky in that regard - by waiting a year or more all the bugs and issues are generally fixed.

    There’s the difference. Sony support their in house gaming studios. Microsoft just seem to close theirs down.

    This looks stunning. Looking forward to giving it a go. My Pro has been a bit neglected since getting the X.

    I hate to think how loud the fans are going to be with this one.... lol
