God of War is receiving a lot of positive press right now - not least its Eurogamer Recommended review - and from our perspective, it deserves its plaudits. It's another great example of a first party studio reaching new heights in terms of visual fidelity, with the title standing proudly alongside the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4 and Gears of War 4. From its remarkable rendering technology to its seamless camera system, God of War is a showpiece title - it's an impressive achievement that demonstrates what can be accomplished when that heady cocktail of raw talent, budget and time is deployed on a key project.

God Of War 3's VA's were great. Clancy Brown, Malcolm McDowell, Kevin Sorbo as Hercules, Rip Torn all fantastic.

£45.99 and you get a further £5 off for pre-ordering bring it down to £41 inc. delivery. Never ordered from there before so I can't advise how close to launch day you'll get it.

£41 is still ridiculous. I'd maybe go to £30 on a video game if it was something I really wanted.

It's ridiculous that you think £41 is ridiculous.

Way before my time on purchasing games so I wouldn't know but weren't 360/PS4 releases £40 / sub £40 or is my mind deceiving me?

A £35 game in 2007 would be the equivalent of a £50 today, adjusting for inflation

£40 was standard, but inflation is a thing. £40 in 2007 (PS3 UK launch) is roughly equivalent to £50 in 2014 (PS4 launch)

I'll definitely be getting this once if I clear my backlog of The Witcher 3, Horizon Zero Dawn, AssCreed Origins, Ni No Kuni 2 etc., when it's about £15 in 5 years.

Suitably tempted by the Smyth's offer. Parents are coming over in May so I could get them to bring it over. Or just post it, I suppose.

HUM.

Caved and ordered from Smyth's.

I did not think my next game purchase would be God of War, but there you go!
