Prime 3 Greatest God of Warfare Video games, Ranked
God of Warfare 2 remains to be the king, and I believe lots of you agree
God of Warfare has been round for 17 lengthy years, and with Ragnarok nonetheless contemporary in everybody’s minds, we figured it was price having a look at just a few of the very best video games within the collection.
Right here’s an inventory of the highest three God of Warfare video games up to now!
3 – God of Warfare Ragnarok (2022)
I’ve had entry to God of Warfare Ragnarok for weeks at this level: which is solely an announcement on how a lot I’ve been absorbed with it, and nothing extra!
Ragnarok is a incredible fashionable motion sport that builds upon a lots of what the 2018 laid down, whereas including its personal twists, turns, and character moments. There are some factors that really feel rushed, and provides credence to the suggestion that this Norse story ought to have been a trilogy: but it surely does stick the touchdown, and has just a few undeniably helpful high quality of life/mechanical upgrades that make it straightforward to get into. Plus, the postgame is extraordinarily easy when it comes to its segue, and it’s been actually enjoyable to “mop up” the remainder of this packed sport.
I think that the precise putting of God of Warfare: Ragnarok and God of Warfare 2018 would be the most contentious a part of this checklist: we’ll see the way it performs out!
2 – God of Warfare (2018)
God of Warfare 2018 had the unenviable job of re-introducing (not rebooting per se) the franchise to most of the people, and God of Warfare followers as an entire.
Amazingly, the staff managed to just do that and never solely surpass expectations; however hold the continuity from the prior video games. To me that’s arguably the most important achievement in a sea of pointless and cynical reboots, because the creatives needed to carry Kratos into the fashionable period whereas preserving his rage, violence, and basic aura alive. Bringing a son into the combo was the proper method to try this, and God of Warfare 2018 serves as an amazing blueprint for how you can deal with companions in video games and never make them really feel like an escort quest hinderance.
The entire babble and exposition when strolling round makes God of Warfare extraordinarily replayable too; and when checking it out earlier than making this checklist, it simply justified its inclusion. I don’t assume it will get sufficient credit score for the way a lot stress it was beneath to ship.
1 – God of Warfare 2 (2007)
Historical past has been extraordinarily form to God of Warfare 2, because it’s nonetheless dwelling lease free within the pantheon of all-time motion greats, even this far faraway from the PS2 period.
Whereas God of Warfare 3 will make it on lots of high three lists: I discovered it to be overly bombastic at factors, and drawn out with just a few of its surroundings/degree decisions. God of Warfare 2 however is a nonstop thrill journey and accomplishes all the things it units out to do.
Like many high tier motion video games, I maintain something that can provide you a superb mixture of humanoid and monstrous boss fights in excessive regard. Satan Could Cry gave us faceoffs towards Vergil. Ninja Gaiden had the Spider Clan. God of Warfare 2 has Perseus, Icarus, Zeus, and Theseus: whereas throwing out iconic creatures like the Kraken.
It enhances what got here earlier than it with the impactful, however surpassed authentic God of Warfare, and it gives one of the all-encompassing fantasies of immersing your self in (tearing aside) Greek mythology that the collection has ever given us. Whereas many of the franchise is tethered in Greece (together with the spinoffs), God of Warfare 2 was the one that basically nailed it, and felt like a “biggest hits” of the time interval.
