Nah God of War isnt on par, it’s magnitudes better.People really think GoW is on par with Platinum/From on a gameplay point of view? I liked GoW but there’s no way it matches the combat depth, enemy variety and skill ceiling that games like Astral Chain, Sekiro, Bayonetta or DMC (the Kamiya ones) had.
It’s not even a criticism of the game, it’s just that to me it doesn’t even try to compete with those.
You really think game journalists can appreciate a game like Bayonetta? You really think there is the same amount of marketing and brand recognition between God of War games (which exist since 2006 or something) and P* games?
The only thing those games have better is enemy variety.
GOW more than makes up for it in graphics, story, presentation, lore, production, level design, purpose.
Combat is heavier and feels better too.
