God of War gets reinvented, and it's fabulous: review By Ebenezer Samuel | NEW YORK DAILY NEWS | Apr 17, 2018 | 10:36 AM 'God of War' (SIEA) The God of War is old now, both literally and narratively. When Kratos and Atreus view the world from various vistas, it's something at which you'll marvel. Melee fight with it, as you would with any other axe. While 2018's God of War doesn't tie directly back to the original trilogy, there are good reasons to play catch-up.
Kratos eventually reaches the Sisters' stronghold, where he learns that Zeus, after murdering the one-time god of war, destroyed Sparta. Perses, Helios, Hercules, Hermes, Cronos, Hephaestus, and Hera all fall in battle against Kratos. The new “God of War” is restrained and thoughtful. Breaking up the combat and exploration are puzzles that Kratos and Atreus run into. Rowling's school of witchcraft and wizardry.
