Forbes: I have decidedly mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I’m happy to see a reboot of the franchise. Like many, I’ve been playing God Of War since the beginning, and have enjoyed many of the games in the series, but there’s no denying that it was all getting a bit stale and dated. There hasn’t been much in the way of a real story, and the fixed-camera overhead camera, combined with far too many Quick-Time Events (QTEs) was getting old.
Don’t get me wrong, the old God Of War games had fantastic hack-and-slash combat, but it definitely felt like something needed to change for the franchise to feel new and exciting again.
