Em­pire of the Son

Meet Kratos’ pride and joy

Games Master - - Review -

Atreus even­tu­ally proves to be an in­valu­able ally dur­ing com­bat. Once you up­grade his bow, Kratos Jr will hap­pily ar­row and dis­tract enemies with deadly pre­ci­sion.

Cer­tain witch-like bad­dies are only vul­ner­a­ble af­ter Atreus has ten­derised them with a few well-aimed skew­ers, so it’s al­ways valu­able to keep the pint-sized mon­ster basher around. A word of warn­ing, though: there’s a good two-hour pe­riod late in the game where he gets su­per-an­noy­ing. Pre­pare to grin and bear it, God Of War fans. Af­ter all, not ev­ery char­ac­ter can be Chris Judge-like­able.
