In the modern era of video games, it's impossible to overlook the need for quality voice acting. This is especially true for games as ambitious as God of War, the new series entry from the developers at Sony Santa Monica. Kratos' latest adventure is more than a simple blood-soaked brawl — it aims to tell a more human story, a tale of the lengths a father will go for his family. As such, the studio called upon the talents of some of the industry's biggest names to voice its characters, the likes of which we're detailing below.
