Players should note that the video contains major spoilers from various parts of God of War Ragnarok.A YouTuber named Speclizer shows what God of War Ragnarok would look like if released on PS2. It begins with Kratos’ first encounter with Thor near the start of the game, as users can already see some major differences between the versions. The character models of Kratos and Thor are noticeably different from those of God of War Ragnarok, and the house also looks less detailed. Players then see a shocking sight, as Atreus in the background is missing a torso.
The next clip shows Kratos meeting Freya, who lacks most of her body. The video then features footage from one of the slowest sections of God of War Ragnarok, as it shows Angrboda and Atreus spending time together. Angrboda is seen painting in this clip, but it also lacks textures and all sorts of detail. The camera sometimes zooms in on the characters’ faces to show the remarkable downgrade they received from the models used in God of War Ragnarok.
The final scene shows Atreus meeting Heimdall in God of War Ragnarok for the first time. Despite the PS2-style graphics, the tension in the scene is still present in this version, likely due to gameplay and the use of music. Heimdall’s model also doesn’t look as bad as the other characters, and his facial expressions are captured well in the downgraded edition.
The full version of God of War Ragnarok looks stunning and PS5 owners can even play the game in 4K, so it’s fun to see iconic scenes recreated in this way. A video from 2022 also showed that God of War RagnarokThe graphics of are better than the previous year, as it looks like the development has added a lot more detail to the game world.
God of War Ragnarok is now available for PS4 and PS5.
