God of War is at last coming to PC. In just a couple short days, in fact. If you’re based on our home platform and yet to dive into Kratos and Atreus’ journey across the realms of Norse mythology, which originally arrived as a PlayStation exclusive back in 2018, then you might be looking to find out if it’s worth your hard-earned pennies. The good news is that PC reviews are now pouring in, so we can find out how well it’s fared with the critics.
In our own God of War PC review, Ian Boudreau scores it a hearty nine out of ten, calling it a “lavishly produced game, from its tectonic boss fights to the fastidious attention to detail that enables its seamless storytelling”. He concludes that it’s “big, brash, and surprisingly poignant”, arriving on PC in “fine shape”, urging prospective fans not to “pass up this chance to play a console classic”.
