Famed for its addictive and indulgent style, God of War is a beloved action RPG with an emphasis on combo-driven fighting and a story based on Greek mythology. As Kratos, a human tricked by gods and eventually elevated to godhood, players make their way through Mount Olympus, Hades, and other mythological locations to get revenge on the cruel, manipulative gods.

The six core games in the series are known for their fun and dynamic gameplay, which includes combo-based fighting, puzzles, and platforming. Kratos fights with a combination of his Blades of Chaos—blades chained to Kratos’ skin that bind him in servitude to Ares—and magic, allowing for a varied and fast-paced approach to combat.

The God of War series has been largely well-received, and some consider it one of the greatest action games of all time, thanks to the sheer fun of hacking and slashing your way through ancient Greek myths. Critics have said that the later entries suffer from a lack of innovation, but the series is still recognized as one of the greats.

A remastered version of God of War III is slated for release in July of 2015, and a new God of War entry is in the early stages of development.
