Living out in a new world has left the previous god of war to forget his past, but also hide it from his family. Kratos is no longer a predictable brute. He is quieter and more deliberate, affected by his history but not constrained by it. Kratos' reinvention serves as a narrative hook, but it also parallels the series' evolution as a whole; where God of War once relied on bombast and bloodlust, now it leaves space for strategy and nuance.
The combat is not as comically overblown as it once was, but this is still a very violent game, with deliberate, intense fights against creatures ranging from the frozen undead to building-sized monsters. Having hung up his blades, Kratos instead uses a weapon called the Leviathan Axe to dispatch his foes.

At first, it didn't seem too bad. It's a fascinating dynamic to see slowly build, propped up by some clever environmental puzzles and (so far) exhilarating combat.
