The best boss fights in the entire series.
Over the years, Sony Santa Monica have accomplished a lot of great things with the God of War franchise, and as they and we get ready to step into the next chapter of the series, perhaps it’s time to look back at those things. And what exactly are they? The epic, adrenaline-fuelled music? The brutal, thrilling action? The buckets of blood and gore? Kratos’ bald and angry head? Well, sure, those are all great- but the one thing that God of War has absolutely and consistently nailed throughout the years has to be its boss fights. Along with greats such as The Legend of Zelda, Metal Gear Solid, and Dark Souls, God of War has to be one of those rare franchises that never fails to deliver some truly memorable boss battles.
We’re hopeful that this year’s God of War will continue that tradition, but we obviously won’t know for sure until we’ve actually played the game. So rather than praying to the dead Gods of Olympus that boss fights in Scandinavia are just as amazing as they were in Greece, we thought we’d instead look back at what we’ve already experienced. Here in this feature, we’re going to take a look at the fifteen best boss fights in the God of War series. If you disagree with any our our picks, feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
Without further ado, let’s begin.
