    @2 Well it’s just the basics: Kratos killing his family, playing as his brother, jolly co-op, fun stuff! Except that the graphics are mostly superb this time.

    I really don’t care about this franchise anymore. I might buy ascension but that depends on the multiplayer if it re invigorates this franchise. Because I have had my fill of it

    @1 I kinda liked it, for a little while. It gets really old really fast, it’s just button mashing with big bald angry dudes. Requires zero skill just pure button mashing luck.

    I can also see it becoming very unbalanced and off putting to new players as the weapons, armour and abilities you unlock can make you very overpowered compared to a new player. Which will likely put most new players off straight away.
