One of the biggest criticisms in regards to reviews, is the fact they’re largely snapshots of that moment. A number of games, such as The Divisionand Destiny, saw a number of changes that vastly improved the experience. This doesn’t happen for every game and in the case of God Wars: The Complete Legend, it’s another release.
The original, which scored a 74 on Metacritic, had issues ranging from graphics to gameplay. What God Wars: The Complete Legend looks to do is not only finish the story but also improve the original experience. While I didn’t play it extensively, a number of changes were made that make the gameplay experience significantly better.
Characters move significantly faster, directions and orders are more intuitive and even the graphics look a little better (only so much you can do). These changes might not seem like much, but the improved experience makes it easier to invest in the experience and that alone should make fans and newcomers excited.
