The big day is almost here. Sony Santa Monica’s hit franchise, God of War, is finally set to return. The PlayStation 4 exclusive brings massive changes to the franchise, including a majorly overhauled combat system and a switch from Greek to Norse mythology. Does the latest chapter in Kratos’ violent story hold up to the classics with all of these changes? According to early reviews, the answer is a resounding yes!

God of War is currently sitting at an average review score of 94/100 on Metacritic, with an astounding 78 positive reviews to zero negative or mixed reviews. The absolute worst score anyone on Metacritic has given it so far is an 80/100, which is still pretty damn good. Journalists are praising the game’s visuals, combat, and story in particular, but reviews are rather glowing all around. In fact, at 94, God of War on PlayStation 4 is now tied with the original PlayStation 2 game as the highest-rated game in franchise history. The newer title has also pulled in more perfect review scores than its predecessor.
