The big angry Spartan is back. Older, beardier and more viking-e-er as the new God Of War sees Kratos exploring Norse mythology. How he’s left behind ancient Greece for mountains full of dragons isn’t clear, but a lot’s changed including combat, monsters and… oh yeah, he’s had a son. 

The addition of the offspring turns this new instalment into a buddy movie of sorts with Kratos Jr along for the whole game as a semi-controllable NPC. Not only does that affect combat and storytelling but, most importantly, it affects Kratos, as he tries to fight his inner anger demons to set a good example for his boy.
