From the very beginning, the God of War franchise has been known for delivering some of the best boss fights you’ll ever experience in video games, from thrilling set pieces of epic scale to grueling fights that put all of your skills to the ultimate test. God of War Ragnarok is coming soon, and the hope is that it will continue that tradition (and based on what we’ve seen of it so far, it certainly seems like things are shaping up that way). Before we dive into its offerings, however, here, we’re going to take a look back at all the major boss fights across all God of War instalments and rank them from worst to best- although there aren’t really any “bad” God of War boss fights, so it might be more accurate to say we’re ranking them from decent to spectacular.
#40. SCYLLA (GOD OF WAR: GHOST OF SPARTA)
God of War: Ghost of Sparta’s opening boss fight is very reminiscent of the likes of the likes of the Basilisk and the Hydra, in that it’s an intro boss fight that sees Kratos taking on a sea monster- but frankly, it’s not as good as any of them. It’s very short and doesn’t test the player at all, and the fact that the first encounter and the conclusion are separated by a decent chunk of gameplay doesn’t exactly help with the formidableness of the creature. Then again, the final QTE sequence does result in a pretty gory death for the Scylla, which is always fun to see.
