I'm not that fussed about the graphics. (Looks like someone went mad with the sharp tool or something on Kratos and Boy.)

I really don't care about God of War and I don't like Kratos, but these reviews...

Have only a passing knowledge of the previous games but this will need a look. I've now got Bloodbourne, this, Horizon and Lost legacy all to play now. It's taken a while but the PS4 catalogue has some seriously fantastic exclusive titles now.

Uncharted Lost Legacy can probably be completed in a weekend, worth it though, great final hour.

Guess I'll be buying a new release after all. This just looks too good to wait for.

The Easy Allies review (and then the IGN one) completely sold me on this

I was expecting it to be pretty similar to the original, just in a new setting, and didn't pay much attention to it. 25-30 hours (!) was still what stood out to me, sounds like a classic.

(BTW, is GoW 3 worth playing too, never got round to it?)

If you liked the previous two, yes.

This wasn't on my radar at all, but review hype has worked, and I've preordered.
