‘God Of War’ Director Cory Barlog Cries As He Reads Out Game Reviews

‘God Of War’ Director Cory Barlog Cries As He Reads Out Game Reviews

Critics have praised the new God of War video game as an epic masterpiece that will be up there in one of the best games, if not number one, for 2018.

Director of the game, Cory Barlog, has released a touching video of himself reading through individual reviews and getting just a little bit emotional.

He starts off explaining how nervous he is to read through the various critiques because he poured his blood, sweat and tears into the project, which took five years to complete.

"This moment means a lot," he tells the camera.

Cory's reacts to the first review nearly instantly, exclaiming 'holy shit' before being left speechless. You couldn't wipe the smile off his face even if you tried and you can sense that this is the validation he was hoping for.

And then the waterworks begin.

The director was blown away by MetaCritic's 94 out of 100 score which is very impressive. That's the same number that was given to the likes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

"[The review scores] shouldn't matter, but I'm just so fucking proud," he said. "I'm just so lucky to work with the people that I work with. To every person who was with us on this journey, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"I'm glad I didn't fuck it up.

"I guess I didn't want to believe that others would see it as we saw it and that's just awesome."

It was really sweet to see a bloke be so open and carefree about his joy. Any of us who have taken years to complete a project and have it pay off will know exactly what Cory was going through.

The game has so far received 25 perfect scores, which in this world of Negative Nellies, is a tough thing to do.

IGN's Jonathan Dornbush wrote: "I have audibly said 'wow' and sighed at the beauty of God of War.

"The texture of grassy hills in the distance feel real, light dances dazzlingly off of shinier surfaces, and every gnarled monster I have fought conveys such a sense of decay as to instil terror in me. Even the sky looks nearly photo-realistic."

Keza MacDonald in the Guardian summed up God of War simply: "It is rare to play a game so accomplished in everything it sets out to do. God of War is a standard-setter both technologically and narratively. It is a game that, until recently, would have been impossible."

The game is now available for PlayStation gamers.
