On paper, the resumption of "God of War" is very similar to the original series: this is a third-person action-adventure game that focuses on chic fighting.
But in reality, there are some big changes outside the bat. First, he has a son who is interested in Kratos (seen above). His name is Atreus (uh-tray-us), and the whole journey is with you.
And one of the sorrows of the journey rather than a tale of revenge: the wife of Kratos (and Atreus' mother) died, and his last wish was to release his ashes at the highest peak in the soil. Incredibly, it's a subtle refocus that first transforms Kratos into a complex, interesting character.
How he handles mourning while teaching his son's valuable lessons – while dealing with his enormous psychological baggage as the previous Greek god – raises the "God of War" from an impressive and spectacular action game to an unforgettable, meaningful game.
