The fact they knew someone would continue throwing the axe at the chime and made extra dialog just for it proves they know their audience. Excellent.
One of my favorites is if you change the time of day more than once when you firsts get that ability. Freya asks WTF you're doing and Kratos just tells her "Perhaps I wanted to see the wolves again"
Its like metal gear when they still had kojima
Its also a hidden achievement
@Hugslothno ones arguing on who did it first gtfo lmao
I wonder if PROZD had anything to do with this dialogue.
I absolutely love when the troll boss makes it’s first appearance in that cutscene and Kratos instantly chops it’s head off. That’s the Santa Monica team basically looking right into the camera and saying “we heard you”
@Dijon Brown There will always be a next game for this franchise. It might not be a 100% direct sequel, or it could be in a different setting, but I'm confident that they won't simply quit one of their best performing series while it's still wildly popular, highly profitable and critically acclaimed.
@Someone's CHclip Username there's no next game bro
@MrWhygodwhy Marvel's style of humor and action was fine for what it was. What bothers me about it is how much it feels like Marvel's style has been injected into other film franchises, much like how The Last of Us was great but now game developers are trying to copy that. Same with how games like Breath of the Wild have everybody trying to be open world, or PUBG and Fortnite making everyone turn into battle royales.
@John Leonard More like Lord of the Rings and Quentin Tarantino. Quippy modern dialogue does not belong to Marvel and I'd argue that Ragnarok pulls it off as a style. You can also see a lot of direct influence from Tarantino in many of the scenes; the opening with Thor and Odin for instance might as well be a remake of the opening from Inglorious Basterds (fine by be fwiw, that's one of the best scenes in cinema history and Ragnarok emulates what made it work quite well). I think people are painting too broad of a brush comparing this to Marvel. It comes off as trying to trash the game by association rather than by any merits of the game.
"We heard you, and we also think God of War should be more like Marvel."
“In this game, the plot i- I give up.”The way this is delivered and edited 👌 pure comedy.
I wasn’t expecting it and I had to go back and rewatch.
I love how you finally meet a mini boss that is from the last game and you don't even fight it, you straight up execute it
@Big Boss There are secret sleeping trolls that you can fight, and Mimir also thought that they were extinct
If I understood correctly from in-game dialogue, they keep hinting at trolls being pretty much extinct because kratos killed so many
@Crack You can fight dragons in this game but they're nowhere near as big as the one from the first game
@rayed is there a dragon boss fight like the first one later on??
you can fight them later on tho, if you didn't know..
I love how dunkey said the names of different characters with ease
Character names and places! He got all the weird Norse dialectic stuff right even Lava lava island from Mario 64 that's a hard one
@Anon Esteban some of them he did, but the ones he didn't he got spot on
@SloppuSushi over your head
@Hanson both of his GOW reviews are pretty much pure review with a little touch of dunkey here and there
5:40 That is legit one of the coldest moments in gaming cutscene history
That scene was definitely badass
This pic goes hard feel free to screenshot
@Senor Studly atreus is now in tekken
This scene got me screaming
The fact they anticipated the squirrel chime interaction is just amazing.
@PixelRebel Actually it is irate people like you that are becoming more common. You only offer criticism and cynicism but you rarely offer real feedback. Good criticism is not just being a pessimistic downer about literally everything.Complaining that people thought a moment was cool because similar have been done before? What an easy and useless thing to say. Everything has been done before, you are a wet blanket and you are NOT a good critic.
@PixelRebel What does having a job have to do with any of this? Are you drunk?
@PixelRebel you know what else isn’t fantastic? Writing a snarky reply to a comment that has nothing to do with you. Your reply doesn’t even make any sense, tf are you trying to say?
@Nova Damn you guys are everywhere now. Don't you have jobs or something? It's not fantastic. Why do people try and disrespect what they enjoy by blatantly praising them blindly for nothing when there is so much? Is it just anti criticism or something?I'm genuinely curious as this happens more and more.
@Nova most anticipated comment in Ohio
Repeatedly throwing the axe at the chime was one of my favorite things I've done in a video game. Definitely got a respect point and a laugh out of me.
I've watched Dunkey's video multiple times. Twice before I got the game, one after I got this game as a gift, another after completing the story. What a masterpiece.
Holy shot no way I literally did the same thing. It's definitely one of Dunkey's best.
In my 30 years of gaming, this is THE best game I've ever played. A true masterpiece.
@Andrew Hooven Beacuse they had to make the content and story of 2 games in 1: Originally they wanted Norse GOW to be a trilogy, but beacuse of time and money they had to be satisfied with 2 games. But I aint complaining.
@Andrew Hooven I will agree the ending was a bit rushed but that’s besides the point for me
@doobie david pacing was good for most of the game but I feel the ending was rushed. SPOILERS AHEAD FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT YET FINISHED GOD OF WAR RAGNAROK SO DO NOT READ AHEAD IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED THIS GAME. THANK YOU. Felt too easy and quick to take down Odin. I think Odin should've gotten away from the fight after disintegrating the noose that Freya had over him. Then after he escapes his ravens are now dead so he can't travel fast and can easily be tracked down but he has one last trick and you have to fight some insane creature from the rift. The rift was super underused as well. Also Asgard was underused by a lot in my opinion. Atreus barely got to explore it
Probably my favourite narrative focused game to be honest, I feel like the pacing is quite good and there isn’t too much in between pivotal moments.
The thing that is the most impressive to me is the sheer amount of fucking dialogue in this game. There’s so many little lines they added to keep you immersed and make the characters seem real. Like whenever mimir is telling a story but you get out of the boat before he finishes, he has a specific line for this specific story about the specific part of the story you left off at. They could’ve easily just had some plain line like “oh what were we talking about again?” But they put so much work into this so that you’re never annoyed by lines repeated until infinity.Except for when Atreus asks if Bifrosted is a word
I have completed the game and I’ve never heard the Atreus “Is bifrosted a word line.”I also didn’t have a problem with them solving puzzles before I could process what was happening.A part from the one time I needed help and they kept saying “Hey look over there.” Without even as much as a point and I’m just like “WHERE IS THERE?”
And when Atreus says “you’re on fire! But you probably already knew that”
@Sourus Yeah, they should've recorded a whole bunch of status effect reminders. Unlees I was really unlucky I counted just one for every status, with the ones Atreus says having Freya ones too. For a game that so clearly had so much work and time put into it, you'd think they'd have an array of gameplay lines as well.
@Xenobork EXACTLY it’s kind of a bummer. That and mimir going “You’re on fire Kratos, it’ll pass”
Atreus' hints and status reminders are my biggest peeve with the game. I remember fighting through Ragnarok at the end with super serious, intense dialogue and music, Atreus is yelling, I'm yelling, everyone is, then he pops in with a light "Father, you're bifrosted! Is.. bifrosted a word?"
Theres just nobody else out there that does videogame reviews like dunkey man.
Hi im Ertuğrul i wanna to practice English i wanna chat about movies and video Games what do you think?
God of War:Ragnarok being God of War 2 and 3 is the best way to describe it. Going into it completely blind gave me an absolutely magical experience. One of the best video games I've ever gotten the joy to experience. So thankful to simply be alive for this era of gaming, there's so much beauty being released and discovered as of late.
@Insanepie 881689 Side games typically aren't included in the main series numbering.
@Toksyuryel we counting the psp game?
@Insanepie 881689 5 & 6 really
God of war ragnarok is god of war 5 🤡 not 2 & 3
@Alex Mac The ending felt so rushed. You could feel the crunch the team had to be under throughout the entire game.
Dunkey always has the best closers for these reviews.
A masterpieces sequel definitely one of gaming greats!!!
this is it, this is last review of this game that I can watch, now I'm totally convinced that this game is worth every penny
better acting, music, and cinematography than most movies. better combat than most action games.
It would be a funny joke if they set it in Rome
@Jackson Mighta heard a rumor saying that gow 2018 was originally going to be set in Egypt, so maybe kratos is gonna go there which is gonna be badass, Imma predict that they gon add some random ass purple pyramid in the sky as a place to go lol
@Jackson It was such a masterpiece. Egypt would be cool, but imagine if they went to the Mayans!
If I knew how much I was going to like it before I bought it I would have happily forked over 140 dollars for it. The previous game is one of my all time favorites and I figured I would love this one but it beat every single one of my expectations. I'm still going back for side quests and exploring after it's done, then I'll replay the first. Then go through Ragnarok again. And then impatiently wait for the next game which I hope to fuck is in Egypt
I got chills right there 😵😢 5:37
Yeah, the music, the shots. Amazing editing by dunkey inside of a comedy video.
This game really makes you feel like emotions.
We've all been waiting since after the first release in 2018 for Ragnarok, safe to say We all got what we wanted
4:53 - 5:45 Absolutely incredible. When a reviewer's sheer joy over a work of art spills over into his editing, it proves that there was something special there. That emotional payoff of 5 minutes of build-up makes this REIVEW high art. GOTDAMN!
@Paz let people enjoy things dude
People getting so worked up over a game whose plot is the very definition of mid
Without spoilers, there's a bit where you're told to leave while 2 other characters talk. There's am interact button to eavesdrop and if you keep doing it, it's hilarious because they know youre eavesdropping. At one point they're like "did you know that they'd be so weird?" And "this is getting awkward"
I did the exact same same thing, haha! Unfortunately the prompt button goes away after a certain amount of times, was hoping for some interesting action
@Groverkiin Muppetborn when hiemdall was talking with odin, after you released garm.
wait what part was that if you wouldnt mind
LOL I just played that part, I kept going back to the door to see how ridiculous it would get
The Squirrel of War was such a good addition. Kojima has really nailed it once again
Ohhh, shit, I didn't realize it but now that you mention it it's definitely there!
Congratulations, Sonic Team!
Thank you Dark Souls
I feel stranded on a beach of laughter with this Ratatoskr guy.
I have just watched 10+ hours of God of War content to watch this video (GoW 2018 and Ragnarok). Love you dunkey
fuckin worth it
This game and the breaking bad finale are the only times in recent memory that a story made me cry.
The nidhog boss fight is probably the most visually stimulating and brilliantly crafted giant monster type boss fight to ever exist. This game is beautiful, brutal, emotional and just fucking wonderful.
Darkeater Midir from dark souls 3
@Bloodchief I have, I mean I’ve played tri and world but that’s about it really. Fatty is an amazing fight. Alatreon, fatty, furious rajang and thunder puppy are my favorites. At this point I think I’ve killed like 500 or so fatalis lmao. But after 1600 hours I got bored. Have yet to be bored of any dmc game that isn’t the demake, 2 or 4. Honestly just wish dmc 4 had more bosses(that weren’t gimmick bullshit).
Lel never played Monster hunter I see.
If we're talking about older games then in terms of big bosses, Bayonetta did it way better than the old gow games, but thats just my opinion and is in no way objective. Also imma have to say then that most well designed bosses would have to go to the devil may cry series. Like only in dmc can you fight 3 whole bosses at the same time on dmd and still be like, that was so fun I wanna do it again, until your again becomes like the 200th time lol. Nelo angelo and vergil mission 20 are still some of the fondest memories from gaming that i have. Hideki Kamiya and Hideaki Itsuno are actual legends.
Laughs in Shadow of the Colossus
I was really intrigued about him wanting to summarize the plot. him just giving up had me in tears
Truly a calm and reasonable review, thanks Duntos.
@Dark Jaguar bruh its a joke, "nit picking and biased" is phrase used by Dunkey
@takeu4adinner Poe's law strikes again!
@Dark Jaguar “he’s nitpicking and biased” is a running joke from Dunkey’s older videos. @Adam Sterdam wasn’t being serious
@Adam Sterdam It's a review. Of course it's biased. That's why reviews exist, to see what someone's unique opinion is. I sometimes buy games Dunkey hates after seeing his reviews too, because I know his tastes and I know my own. In this case, I've seen other reviews as well and while I think I will get this game, I know in advance I'm not going to like the auto-solving puzzle sections.
No he's nitpicking and biased. bad review
The chime and the squirrel had me in tears.
Really shows the level of detail in the game. In most reviews Dunkey uses that to potentially show some laziness of the game in some form or another, but clearly they took the time to manicure details like that.
Dunkey really does a better job promoting games than actual game promoters. His excitement when explaining the game he likes really is contagious6.5/10 "Not enough Knack"
The choice and timing of the music on his delivery makes it perfect
The 5:35 moment actually gave me goosebumps I’m sad to admit, I haven’t even played ragnarok. Wonderful video as ever Dunkey
Literally wrote in my notes while playing Ragnarok "ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VISUAL"
I like that you show brok coming in the house when you say "incredible cast"
I accidentally sent Skoll and Hati twice in a row and Freya went “what are you doing? We need the sunlight to get though. And kratos goes, “I…. Wanted to see the wolves again…”
I love that they thought to include that, and Christopher Judge's delivery on those kind of lines (and all of his lines) is fantastic.
This was so sad, and returning to your house post game as well to get a journal
This game going to win many awards it beautiful 😍
You know, I don't really play video games much at all. I have a busted old ass PC that I play "the game that shall not be named here" from time to time and Fortnite with my son but this content is excellent. I am.nevet closer to upgrading my PC or buying a console than when I hear a good review from Dunkey. I watch every video when it comes out and love it. Keep going man. Can wait to see what your brand brings to the market.
I didn't know ratatoskr had that long of an interaction to hitting the chimes lmaothis game has everything
Combat was super fun, Characters were all amazing. But the story was kinda all over the place though… The ending felt very anticlimactic and very unsatisfying. It almost seems like they forced Odin to become one of those crap tier villains who’s motives make absolutely no sense.And the few character deaths that happened didn’t make any sense either… Especially when Odin killed you know who during Ragnarok… That made no sense at all. Feels like they had him do that to seem more evil and killable.
I was not expecting to be sobbing in the first 10 minutes but hey here we are
When dunkey says they dont wanna spoil something for the game. you know its good
I feel like this game might even have just a tiny little bit of something for everyone
Finally, a Dunkey and ProZD crossover episode. Even if Sung Won didn't know he was in it.
The crossover I've been dreaming of 😱😱
To clear up some confusion, Troy Baker voices Bitter Squirrel (the squirrel aspect that we knew of from GoW 2018). ProZD voices the main squirrel Ratatoskr and all the other squirrel aspects (Anxious Squirrel, Perfectionist Squirrel, Arrogant Squirrel, etc), but Troy Baker reprises Bitter Squirrel in GoW Ragnarok.
When the squirrel is the best character in the game.
@teiadam the squirrel doesn`t look like ProZD. Are you sure?
Wait what he's one of the VA in this games?!!
Your serious videos will always be my favorites.
The best part of the constantly-shifting companions is getting to hear different actors spell out in explicit detail the solution to every puzzle before you're forced to actually form a coherent thought
This was an amazing game frok start to finish
Dunkey praising ProZD is the crossover I never dreamed of
You know that when there is little to no sarcasm and lots of praise in one of dunkey’s reviews, it’s a god damn good game.
@anselmo pat As someone who actually only recently started watching any Marvel movies, correct. The writing in Ragnarok isn't even in the same ballpark. It's closer to the writing of something like Lord of the Rings with a splash of Quentin Tarantino for good measure, which Marvel certainly borrows from both but they don't own those styles nor are they closest to Ragnarok. Marvel also tends to feel 'fake' which Ragnarok does not. I can fully believe these words coming out of each of these character's mouths. I agree with some that the writing might feel too modern, but honestly it is easy enough to imagine it as a translation from Norse for a modern audience and it IS at least consistent about it. Basically, since everyone talks that way, it is just how this world is. Since it isn't meant to be a direct translation of Norse myths, I give that a pass. But I would understand if someone else didn't.
@Ivan Anyaegbu Seems to be carryover for whatever hate train is on Sony properties these days...well, based on the general internet reaction to TLOU2, still hearing criticisms about Abby being 'trans', and seeing at least two contrarian reviewers attempt to call this game 'woke', I think we already know where the weird hatemob is coming from. You can tell because the criticisms are often not even based on anything actually in the game, or outright opposite to what is verifiably in the game, kinda like they didn't play it and maybe watched someone tell them this is the next 'woke' thing to trash.For the record, if Ragnarok is too woke for you please kindly remove yourself from the internet, thanks.
@Astral Chaosit’s like many of those people didn’t play the damn game thor fight Garm fight fighting two Valkyries In literal SPACE next to the place where the cosmos itself was born !!!! ? And people saying it has “marvel” writing cannot be real
@bungi fish”sidequest don’t feel very rewarding” Of all things to criticize on this game…you decided to say it’s sidequest aren’t rewarding? 💀
@Arcane AI am thoroughly convinced people who say this either didn’t play the game or never watched any marvel in their livesIt’s one or the other
4:13 Must be one of the most amazing parts of the entire game, I can't believe that it exists.
@Abel Turner It really goes to show that games don't have to always non stop take themselves seriously to be serious
And that it works! I'm amazed at how much I laughed in this game and yet it kept its tone so well.
@Doubtful Doug I gotta play this game.
If you walk up to the pot afterwards he'd say, "Looks like someone did want a snack" and then Kratos *grunts*.
Apart from the already obvious and many times mentioned things great about this game, the extra dialogues (as you've shown with Ratataskr here) and the attention to detail is what makes it truly a triple A game. You can feel their passion, and that in turns create a fun game.Also, it actually surprised me, seeing a damn huge game without a single game breaking bug. Also, the reason why I wanted for there to be 2 GOTY awards given out this year.
I can't complete the Vanaheim quest to save that Ex traveller
There is a bug that prevents you from fighting a boss on ps4, where you have to get it to kill itself by using another bug
@Rain Cant tell the difference between the games at this point.
There is unfortunately an audio bug plaguing a lot of people. (Imagine your in an area with rushing water/waterfalls but you hear no water falling. Applies to footsteps and health/ragestones being destroyed) not game breaking totally, but it did make the entire of svartleheim feel dead (i was lucky that the glitch was contained to that one realm for me)
@Rain Forgot about that one, omg! Both good choices.
Dad of War. Dadnarok. Glad i got to play this years dad simulator. 2019s was good and 2022s wraps up the story on being a less shitty dad. I'm glad in the end Boy proves to all his bullies that his dad can beat all the other dads.
can we talk about that awesome end edit tho 👌🏻
I agree. This game deserves the "AAA" title. It's super polished and carefully curated. Excellent performance as well.
@RPGeek How about you do the same
@Astral Chaos brilliant arguments. Perhaps play it first instead of watching someone play on youtube
@RPGeek It really isn't
@Astral Chaos Yes it is
@RPGeek It's not that bad honestly
You know it's a great game when Dunkey doesn't rate it
@Jefferson Santos i sure hope not
@Kenkuli nah...he wrote "more dunkey". this is his max rating.
@Kenkuli what you mean he doesn't rate games anymore?😳
@EvShrug unga bunga ooga booga
Rating art is for people who lack emotional intelligence.
My favourite part of God of War Ragnarok is the log flume ride in Svartalfheim, cheaper than going to Disneyland
Greatest game I'll ever play
I’ve played many games. But it’s been so long since I’ve felt such emotional weight emanating from the story, the characters, and the music. There are a few life lessons that I will take, being a father now and wanting to be a better man. Can’t believe I’m saying this, but Ragnaok has now become one of my top 3 games of all time. I hope more people will play this game and find things they can take away from this journey. God damn!
@Andy Thai Welp if I was, it would be with a guy. And the thought of kids is no, I like freedom better than kids...
@LordTourettes someone is feeling saucy tonight 😏
Okay. Good luck on...that.
As goofy as it is, that interaction with the squirrel guy and the chimes is a great way to handle repeating events in a game. Instead of saying nothing or repeating the same phrase, he adds onto what he said previously. It may seem like a small detail but a lot of games miss out on the small things like that and it's just nice to see the extra thought they put into their game
Because it's not needed.In a story game- maybe, but from a gameplay perspective it adds nothing, just makes you stay longer doing nothing.
@Vladut Stefan One of the most boring and pretentious games ever made. Somehow i'm not surprised.
That is why I enjoyed Bastion as much as i did back then.
nowadays I'd be really disappointed if a triple A studio didnt handle these scenarios like this. How ever it is impressive especially if you know the sound design process, just that little addition is very time consuming.
In svartalfheim I threw my axe at a light beam in the elf palace, and mimir said something like "are you angry at the light brother" this game is so seamlessly funny. I got a few good chuckles in throughout my experience.
Took until the very end to realize the squirrel was ProZD - love recognizing him in a lot of games now!
Can't wait to play it on PC. In three years.
Modern movies could learn a lot from these 2 games, comedy, tragedy, drama, action, and wonder can all coexist beautifully in a video based piece of art
@JackisJack but movies also have less plot and characters so they can still divvy these attributes out
@JackisJack in that case a tv show could learn. there are so many shows that end up losing what makes them good halfway through unlike this game which stays consistent with a clear goal in mind (in terms of the writers)
Movies are much, much shorter than both of these games, leaving less time for such leeway.
Fucking love this game so damn much man
it is truly inspiring to see more games learn from knack 2 just like god of war has done. What an absolute masterpiece!
@Arjun Reddy yeah Norse mythology was inspired by Knack too!
The irony is that Ice and fire ancient are probably inspired from knack series🤣
@MURRA ARRUM Nice Snack 😂
Did someone say KNAAAAAAAAAAACK???
They really have a knack for it.
Not only did they nail the characterization of the gods themselves, but they tied everything into the actual mythos very well. Everything from the subtle details on the walls to the plot points that originally seem to be one-off parts of the story. As someone who has played God of War since the first game, I was blown away by not only the attention to detail and respect for Kratos' past but how they also made this character with nothing but blind rage into an interesting, wise, moral, and realistic human being. Mastapeece.The climbing does really suck, though
@ツV01D Hell yeah
@Dinggis Khaan love that part
What about when Loki ties his nuts to a goat?
yea the climbing does suck which is why im glad they added the function for the blades to hook you place to place
This game makes you feel like war.
4:53 Dunkey casually predicting Judge winning Best Performance in a video game.
The editing in this video is top tier - great job DunkeyLast minute or two in particular
Such a good game it almost plays itself
The amount of additional dialogue for specific scenarios or gameplay is amazing.
That part Kratos cuts the troll's head off was such a good nod and fist bump to the player. GOW 2018 was great, but it had too many of those bastards.
Just finished the game today, been waiting to watch this till I finished and God damn it was a great finish
me too! Dunkey didnt disappoint
Had so much fun with this game, the side quests were great and the themes of families and Kratos' growth really well executed, but I have to say I felt the ending was pretty rushed -- I was expecting multiple stages of the last two boss fights, like we had with Baldur in GOW 2018, and they ended kinda abruptly and unsatisfyingly imo. So much build up to Ragnarok, just to fight a few Einherjer and then the aforementioned short fights? Where was the drama?!
Pretty much how I Feel, Great game but the final Battle was rushed imo and it was not as good as the other final bosses in the GOW series. But even with that, still one of the two best games along with Elden Ring.
man, who does your editing? Because 5:35 to 5:45 is so well done just that little section there makes me tear up
He does his own editing
@ME B Letting Go from the OST
@ME B the games main theme
anyone know which ost was used there?
There is more artistry in some of Dunkey's videos than there is on entire CHclip channels.
2:05 Opening shot? Dunkey, literally the entire game is one shot.
I love that the squirrel is voiced by ProZD
Such a good fucking game. Happy to pay $60 for stuff like this
Loki being impregnated makes perfect sense because he let all the other gods gamble away the sun and the moon to this guy who said he could build them a huge wall in one month, and with the help of his superhorse swathlfari who dragged an astonishing amount of stones he almost completed it in time, so loki transformed into a sexy lady horse and led the guys horse away into the forest to hump
The best review on CHclip
I absolutely love the fact that you can have Atreus shoot at the little spiders and other creatures on the wall and actually KILL THEM. I've played so many video games where there are things on a wall and you can't interact with them at all. They added so many little things like that to the game and it's incredible!
@childofbhaal I was being sarcastic
There’s even lil creature guys that wave at you that the game prevents you from throwing your axe at to kill. I mean IWouldn’t wanna cuz they’re just lil guys but it’s a nice detail
I legit thought they were somehow significant to the story because there were so many and I could kill them lol
Are you easily impressed or something? That’s been in games super old. It’s 2022 man
@Splatmaster2007 everyone acting like these games arent all mimicking Diablo II where we spent hours crushing the spiders for no reason whatsoever
DAMN dunkey fucking LOVED this game.
They also made a character so detestable that killing him was one of the most satisfying things I’ve done. I’m sure everyone knows who I’m talking about
i love with with the chimes when mimir says "that's very uncharacteristic of you, brotha"
“It may not be high art, but it’s definitely high entertainment”Nah. It’s both
One of my favorite parts of the game is how much effort they put into the dialogue for when characters are just wandering around and exploring. Mimir telling stories and bantering with Atreus and Kratos makes exploring feel somehow more real than in other games where you are following objectives and quest markers.
@Lil Rice Bowl then I won't be playing most, if not all, modern Sony games, so I might sell my PS5 as well.
@turbotrup96 if you don’t like story games then don’t play them
@Will Mcphee i felt like i couldnt care less about 70% of the babbling. less can be more. check out elden ring maybe
@Arcane A that is incorrect, but whatever makes the shallow grumpy critic happy i guess. take care mate 🤙🏽
@Smokey Jo lmao. Are you living under a rock? braindead oblivious fanboy.
This is the first chime-type game
Wow. What a game.
I absolutely loved the game, but i have to be completely honest. The whole Ragnarok chapter at the end, felt very short and unsatisfyingly underwhelming after going through so much hypefull concern and preparation for it. Not to mention how many questions were left unanswered. Even more so for those who know a bit of Norse mythology.
My one complaint was I felt the writers were too afraid to let the story reach its full potential by letting bad things happen. The good guys came out completely unscathed (except for that one extremely, EXTREMELY foreshadowed death), even by hard choices. Kratos even gets saved from killing That One Guy you know he has to kill even if you don't want him to. Really could have hit you hard if they wanted to, but they pulled so many punches. All the constant talk about the cost of war and Kratos not wanting war to sully Atreus' soul could have been driven home by something as minor as killing Skjoldr during Ragnarok. Sadly no character was too minor to save.
The ending was underwhelming and anti climatic. Such build up, and these are the last 2 fights we have? Ragnarok, psh
They tried to do this with Brok, but I felt like his death wasn't impactful enough for me to forgive Ragnarok's rushed pacing. Like with every bad movie, the main problem is that there's too many characters I'm supposed to care about (which is impossible for me), and Brok is one of them. In 90% of 2018 and 80% of Ragnarok, Brok and Sindri were simple gag characters, and after they explored Brok's tragic backstory, we didn't see enough conflict between Brok and Sindri to really make me feel like something significant was lost.
5:30 the combination of the visuals and the music gave me chills. Great editing, dunk.
@Vasco G I was trying so hard not to cry like wtf bro lmao
Legit gave me chills. Easily the most impactful moments in the story!
I fucking cried man, just finished the game and everything came to my mind !! Really good editing from dunkey.
It was, but making it as a punchline of this review was dissapointing. We all saw that ending coming.
The Godfather reference was unexpected!
I had so much fun with a lot of the side quests in this game, and it seems as though side quests are never fun. Plus they felt really rewarding and had pretty substantial payoff.
I literally just got to the end credits and all I have to say is WHAT AN AMAZING VIDEO GAME AND WHAT AN AMAZING VIDEO!
now i wanna play it

I made that comment earlier, a real dead ringer.
Jesus Christ I'm so sick of this comment on every dunky vid
Go back to the norns with atreus to look for the horse for an extra funny scene 😂
When I heard they were finishing up the story of this God of War series with 2 games I was skeptical. The first was so good but I didn't see how they'd tie up all the story threads and still make a satisfactory ending but here we are. They did it with ease.
I waited to watch this video until I finished the game, and the whole time I was thinking, "Okay, Dunkey is going to have at least some negative shit to say. What shit is he going to say?" So, for fun, I went along with a very critical eye, and I'm glad I did, because it kept my eyes glued to what turned out to be a masterpiece and, without a doubt, my favorite game story ever.
This man was saying nothing but fire
Man. When Dunkey really likes a game it so good to hear how he explains it. I love it
@Ricardo Hoàng both are amazing i dont care who wins because both of them deserve it
@DSG Sleazy Elden Ring vs GoW this Game Awards! 👌
The first time he got me to buy a game full price was Elden ring where he delivered his review just like this and he was 100% right, this will be the second time and I have no problem support people who create a masterpiece.
i love dunkey reviews, but it definitely hits different (in a good way) when you get this type of review. love it!
The story was perfect to me and that intro was the best intro I’ve seen in a video game and it was so epic. Everything really felt like a movie for each cutscene for me
Dunkey gets it
