So, bought this game for cheaps a week ago. It being the last game before the reboot I decided to give it a look. Some users like BigVee and SBK had already warned me that it might be the least fun game in the series, and suffice to say they were right. Lots of writings on the wall. From the multiplayer being pushed to elemental based weaponry, extreme emphasis on narrative in certain parts. Weird combat choices, neutered combat options (grabs nearly completely removed (which GoW2018 fixed by removing them completely)) and also weird hitbox and hitstun issues. Freezing is probably the most useless ability in any videogame here. So many weird design choices.

Have to say I did like the visual tone of the game, and the elemental weapons - each with their own perks - were fun to toy around with. Still, the original literally feels like a sequel to this one, which is never good. Anyone here ever play it?

I wouldn't be surprised if I end up liking it more than the others. I always tend to like what everyone else hates lol.

I had the exact same idea booting it up, but no, it's not. The game is worse in pretty much every possible way. There's less weapons, less content, enemies are worse, handle worse, more bugs, more hitbox issues, tons of camera issues that weren't there before, nerfed grab system, whole game balanced around a single item; there's just a lot of problems here. 

Don't get me wrong, it is still a good game and I had a lot of fun with it. But every game in the series is better (well, except maybe DadTime).

This game feels pretty off.

The Blades of Chaos have the weirdest "Swoosh" sound effect that sounds really out of place whenever you swing it.

The colour scheme is terrible, and washed out.

Combine that with the ridiculously zoomed out camera, and I kept losing track of Kratos.

The game chugs insanely hard, and never reaches 60fps.

I mean, it's still God of War, which is fun and all, but there are a LOT of problems not present in other games.

Yeah, I wrote a bit about it in the God of War 2018 article, but the game had a really troubled development. The lack of 60fps is normal, all games in the series were 30fps anyway with the exception of the PS4 port as I recall of GoWIII.

But yeah, I had the same experience. Fun, God of War, but sloppy at times.

PS2 versions run at an unlocked framerate, but the PS3 remastered titles reach 60 fps.

I'll be darned, you're right! Didn't know! I have the PAL versions, maybe they are capped? Apologies.

Still, GoW:A is considered the black sheep (before GoW2018 came along). It is fun but not too amazing, having only 1 weapon didn't do it any favours either.

The elemental effects on the Blades of Chaos when the rage meter is full look really good. The ice one, especially.
