Almost a month has passed since the release of God of War, and we can already say that the new Sony exclusive has become one of the main events in the gaming industry over the past year.
The gaming press and gamers unanimously echo that we got an almost perfect adventure, where every element, whether it be plot, characters or gameplay, turned out to be at the highest level.
SatnaMonica Studios has taken the best elements from cult titles like Resident Evil 4 and The Legend of Thelda and took them to the next level. Although Kratos has become calmer, almost a couch potato, this did not stop him from breaking any competitors in his path, having reigned on Olympus in the gaming industry. Now the only visible competitor that can move Kratos off the podium as the best game of 2018 is Red Dead Redemption 2 .
But okay, stop singing praises, God of War has objective problems. With all the hard work that the developers put into the game, they have failed to create the perfect project that can be recommended to everyone. Alice will tell you more in the new video review of God of War.
Scandinavian mythology and what it is eaten with
In the new God of War, Kratos decided to change the southern climate of Greece to the cold, northern regions of modern Scandinavia. At the same time, mythology, acting characters, gods, causes of conflict and opponents have changed. Although the game constantly introduces, gives a brief description of myths and gods, it is quite easy to get lost in all the variety of Aesir and Vanir and eventually stop catching the plot thread altogether.
And even if you remember by heart all the new Hollywood films Marvel and Thor - your favorite character in the cohort of the Avengers, you should be disappointed, the films and a tenth part do not provide the useful information that you need to know before starting the game.
To understand the mythology of the new God of War, we advise you to read the books "The Younger Edda" and "The Elder Edda", which are one of the oldest collections of Scandinavian poems and skaldic poetry. Despite the fact that the books were written almost 1000 years ago, thanks to modern adaptation, they are read without problems even today.
Of course, this is the choice for hardcore players and just people who like to spend their leisure time reading literature. But this is the best way to delve into the mythology of Scandinavia. Unfortunately, little attention is paid to the northern mythical epics, but we can assure you that they are in no way inferior to the Greek ones.
