Editor’s note: Yes, this review is incredibly late. There was a HUGE mix-up in getting God of War shipped to Miklós, and the courier company we used took several years to rectify the mistake. This resulted in Miklós only receiving the game a couple of weeks ago. WE’RE SORRY.
In 2005, God of War debuted on the PlayStation 2 and redefined the action-adventure genre almost overnight. The series quickly set a new standard that many other titles tried to emulate, with varying degrees of success. Over the course of ten years and spanning two flagship Sony consoles and one handheld, the God of War series saw protagonist Kratos murdering the entire ancient Greek pantheon, with increasingly gory details as hardware specs improved. The series remains one of Sony’s most lucrative, and one with the most consistently positive reviews for each iteration.
