Nothing like GOD OF WAR!

Not new. But the uncharted series and maybe the last of us.

ID: hge1g4r

already played them, uncharted series is great, didn't like last of us though.

ID: hgelgve

You can go older and play the Prince of Persia Sands of Time trilogy. It's more of a GOW 1-3 type of game.

ID: hgegznv

Last of Us 2 is a lot more combat and less stealth focused.

7 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:22 ID: hge2v0d

Story wise it may not be the same but Kena has a similar style in terms of combat and puzzles

8 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:24 ID: hge33tk

The Tomb Raider games actually have many similarities

You should look at Control. Wide-linear, really interesting world, and fun gameplay.

ID: hge1krk

don't know, I saw some gameplays on youtune and wasn't interesting, although it was recommended to me, is it worth it u think?

ID: hge3pjf

Yeah! It was available for PS Plus not too long ago. The Ultimate Edition. So you should be able to download it if you’ve been diligent about adding games to your library.

If not, the game is old enough where you can get it for cheap. I think it’s a ton of fun.

ID: hge4tos

Control is a fantastic game

ID: hgejkfw

What was the reason it was uninteresting to you

I’m expecting downvotes for this comment, but the closest game franchise in terms of structure I can think to God of War is the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy, the bigger difference is that the combat is more about ranged attacks, like if comparably you played God of War as Atreus. But beside that it is a similar semi linear structure, similar progression systems, a bunch of puzzles, high production values and large scale set pieces. I will say that I personally did not care for the story although I know others like it.

If you want a hack and slash instead then can’t go wrong with Devil May Cry 5.

EDIT: Slipped my mind while making this comment, Jedi Fallen Order is the closest option you have OP. It’s the same structure as Tomb Raider or God of War, but retains a melee combat approach and even has a small partner that goes with you.

ID: hgeemql

Having played and enjoyed the tomb raider trilogy I have to agree but I've never thought of those two franchises are similar but they actually are.

ID: hgefifo

Definitely not the first game that comes to mind I agree, but in terms of a direct comparison of what these games do they are certainly similar, your reply also reminded me that Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order exists and might work even better in this context than Tomb Raider

11 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:17 ID: hge23az

Bayonetta, Ninja Gaiden Master Collection & Devil May Cry 5 are hack 'n slash titles similar to God of War. They're very exhilarating as well. I'd highly recommend you try them out!

ID: hge5dn0

Are you comparing to the OG GoW or the PS4 game?

ID: hge66gx

To elaborate the three games I recommended to OP are similar in the sense that they're hack 'n slash titles (since they were lookin' for games that scratch that same itch).

Other than that the way they play are closer to the God of War games prior to the PS4 title (GoW 1, 2, 3, etc.)

ID: hge4mi6

should I buy the "+ Vergil" release?

ID: hge54bh

If you only have a PS4 then I'd say got for it. Otherwise get "Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition" if you have a PS5.

Also if you get the + Vergil release just know that you won't be able to upgrade to the PS5 version since Capcom didn't provide a upgrade from this title for some odd reason.

Godfall is pretty much a GoW clone gameplay amd camera set up wise.

13 : Anonymous2021/10/12 20:50 ID: hgefupw

Darksiders 1

14 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:01 ID: hgehi32

Darksiders 2!

15 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:58 ID: hgepnqa

While you might enjoy similar games, maybe you just like GoW because it is Game of the year material. I basically check all 9-10/10 games regardless of genre and very often have a good time.

16 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:41 ID: hge5ond

Hellblade possibly

17 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:24 ID: hge33gz

Dante's Inferno is also a great game similar to GOW

ID: hgeaai9

Dante's inferno is similar to the older GOW games. I'm willing to bet OP means the 2018 god of war

18 : Anonymous2021/10/12 20:03 ID: hge8xaj

Fenyx immortals rising. Has a ton of puzzles. Hack and slash. Also looks great on ps5.

19 : Anonymous2021/10/12 20:19 ID: hgeb8y0

Hellblade. It’s still set in the Norse mythology but way more darker than gow. It’s on sale right now too. If you get it play with headphones if you can.

20 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:55 ID: hge7slt

Dark Souls games are similar to God of War 2018.

21 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:14 ID: hge1pxl

Uncharted is fun , last of us , zero dawn

ID: hgehjw6

None of those are anything like GoW

ID: hgevvyy

They are somewhat similar in storytelling and in pacing.

22 : Anonymous2021/10/12 20:14 ID: hgealzm

DMC5 is a better pure action game than GOW, and I loved GOW.

23 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:32 ID: hge4enh

God of War 2018 is basically dark souls with a cinematic story

ID: hgen028

So the perfect game?

24 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:01 ID: hgehjo9

The Tomb Raider games

25 : Anonymous2021/10/12 22:48 ID: hgewkpf

Jedi fallen order is very similar to God of war.

26 : Anonymous2021/10/12 19:59 ID: hge8g0r

devil may cry 5 and bayonetta

also recommend nier automata

27 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:01 ID: hgehgzn

Darksiders I & II

28 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:33 ID: hgem6ga

Maybe God Fall PS5 ? Sounds similar in name

29 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:34 ID: hgema8t

I loved GoW. Still my favourite game. With that said... Demon's Souls Remake. No puzzles but lots of traps, fun gameplay and a world that's really immersive.

I'm just playing through A Plague's Tale and I'm really enjoying it.

Not as violent for sure, but great story, up skilling itinerary etc.

Best ps5 ps+ game for a while IMO

32 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:53 ID: hgeozuz

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is very much in the same vein as GoW, great game from a smaller studio with a sequel coming soon too

34 : Anonymous2021/10/12 22:05 ID: hgeqnki

Try star wars: jedi fallen order, maybe ? I'm playing both right now and they're very similiar

35 : Anonymous2021/10/12 22:32 ID: hgeud87

Story wise, naughty dog games, and maybe he’ll blade. It’s still an action game so bayonetta, dmc etc

36 : Anonymous2021/10/12 22:51 ID: hgewxua

I'd say Kena. Doesn't have the same darker vibe but it has similar interconnected worlds and neat puzzles to solve that remind me a lot of God of War. And the combat is pretty similar too. Hell using your bow and arrow reminds me of the way Atreus shoots his arrows in GOW too.

37 : Anonymous2021/10/12 23:10 ID: hgezhc2

Ratchet & Clank

38 : Anonymous2021/10/12 23:15 ID: hgf03qh

Any tomb raider game and uncharted 4

39 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:14 ID: hgejecv

Ghost of tsushima feels similar in a lot of ways, to me.

40 : Anonymous2021/10/12 20:39 ID: hgee8hc

Heavenly Sword. Prince of Persa, Devil May Cry

41 : Anonymous2021/10/12 21:27 ID: hgeladl

There's a lot of influence from GoW in AC Valhalla. Combat feels similar but enemies are less bullet-spongy. Reduced number of weapons, upgrading them, putting runes in them, unlocking abilities through exploration and quests, interesting puzzles.

Highly recommend it
