Watch God of War’s director discover how well critics responded
If you haven’t heard already, the new God of War is rather good. It received a Recommended stamp of approval here on Eurogamer and, according to Metacritic, is now the highest-rated PlayStation 4 exclusive released to date.
Maybe the game’s creative director, Cory Barlog, had a suspicion reviews would be positive when he sat down to record this reaction video. Maybe he didn’t. Either way, seeing the moment he finds out how critics have responded to five years of his life is something pretty special.
On finding out the game had been received well, Barlog becomes visibly emotional, before thanking members of his team for their work over the past half decade. Towards the end of the video, Barlog then quotes from one review in particular – one which you may recognise.
