God of War

I picked up a copy of this from CEX just before Xmas, only set me back a score. Reviews are very good, it might well have the best reviews for a PS4 game on Amazon beating the likes of Last of Us, Uncharted4 and recent release RDR2.
I was expecting great things but so far I just cannot get into it, it doesn’t have me killing 2-3 hours a night playing it like the aforementioned games did.
I am treating this as early days and will give it more of a go hoping that it picks up more.
Anybody else played this already? Thoughts? Should I stick with it and is it one of these games that takes time to get going???

Is Horizon Zero Dawn worth a purchase? I fancy something fun and haven't got the time to put into RDR2!

From what I've seen it looks like a great game, but does it keep your interest? And is it too similar to FC 4 / 5?

I’ve not played it myself Notso but heard it’s very good and up there with the best releases of the past 2 years.

What was FC5 like? Loved 3 and 4, didn’t bother with Primal.

The game is huge.
Ive put about 10 hours into it and im about 30% through - i do a fair few side missions too.
I work a lot and can play here and there and still enjoy it.

I don't know how it got such amazing reviews, perhaps im not far enough into the story but its quite good. Looks lovely on ps4 pro on a nice 4k tv.

I do enjoy seeing remnants of the 'old world' (as in our present time) in complete ruins though and some of the scenery is well nice.

Story is interesting enough. Its like the movie terminator, but centuries into the future after the war.

I realise i kind of contradicted myself in that post.

Its an interesting game and looks lovely. Combat can be slightly repetitive although mastering the bow and arrow can be fun i guess.

Give it a go. It doesnt cost much on the ps store i dont think. I bought the deluxe for about 12 quid

Cheers Greg

It's weird that some people say it's the best game ever, and others say it's just ok! I might pick it up in the next couple of weeks. Or I might go back to Borderlands 2, I'm only about a quarter through that.

Horizon Zero Dawn seems interesting and it's probably fairly cheap now as well.

Borderlands was awesome! Such a weirdly wonderful artistic concept, and I think I only picked it up originally on my PS3 because of PS+ but loved it!

Yeah borderlands 2 is great. I think I was a bit stuck in an annoying area of the map and got annoyed and gave up! But it's a brilliant shooter and so much to do, I need to get back in to it!

No worries.
I wouldnt say horizon zero dawn is the best game ever Maybe I'll say that when I've completed the story...
Its certainly not bad though.

Borderlands. 1 was awesome, i played that loads with my mate.
We both played borderlands 2 and couldn't get into it unfortunately.

Do you prefer 1 or 2

Horizon was great but so vast I had to force myself to go back to it after a month away to finish it. I enjoyed it a lot and definitely worth buying but it's one you need to stick with. I think it took me around 60 hours to complete the story and side quests. I can't say it's a game I'll ever consider playing again but would say the same for most games of similar design. After such a long time you've seen everything there is to see.
