'God of War' refresh levels up the iconic game to a modern classic

Iconic video game God of War has been dusted off, polished up and given a modern makeover, and we’re having a hard time putting down the controller. DT gaming editor Mike Epstein has been hacking away at the game for a while now, and has a lot of praise for the rethink of the franchise, which dates back to 2005.

Now re-skinned and remade, the new version of God of War tracks central figure Kratos to his quiet mountain retreat, where he lives with his adolescent son, Atreus, and wife, or his late wife, who has recently passed away. Kratos looks a little worse for wear, and his new look has some players calling the game “Dad of War,” but be advised: there’s no shortage of combat situations. There also no shortage of great voice acting, amazing locales, and an interesting, involving storyline. Check out Mike’s full review: https://www.digitaltrends.com/game-reviews/god-of-war-review/
