Kratos will be “more vulnerable” in God of War: Ascension

It's no secret why the God of War series is consistently amidst the debate in regard to violence and gore in video games. Kratos has given us some of the most epic, entertaining, and memorable boss fights in gaming's long and celebrated history. They've never been without their share of bloodshed and brutality however, and some of gaming's most renowned developers and designers have spoken out against the oversaturation of violence within the industry.

David Hewitt, game designer for God of War: Ascension told IGN that while the carnage customary to the franchise will still be present in the newest installment, it'll be toned down a bit as the game will more thoroughly explore Kratos as a human being. (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

Emotionally, most likely.

Physically, it is a little hard to believe.

Ya I don't think kratos is the hey lets talk it out guy he will probably just rip your skull off.

kratos is a mix between a man, a hyper nova, a villin and psychopath, he is not going down...EVER.

He isn't a psychopath.

If you know what they are really like and understand the reason behind his vengeance, then you'd know the use of the word "psychopath" to describe Kratos is completely wrong.

A kratos that is weaker than before and save human beings like in the demo will be pretty interesting in society. No god of war game as ever disapoint me and I am sure this one will make me as happy as when I played the original on the greatest console of all time the excellent and most magnificent PS2. People all over the earth are still playing GOW 1 and 2 on there PS2 in regions that cannot afford a PS3, this series still stand as the greatest hack and slash series of all time.

Well if it is a prequel then we should see how he really became the baddest dude around.

Christ, what's with all the stealth disagrees around here?

Well considering chronologically it's the first in the franchise, it would make sense to NOT go backwards in terms of gore and violence. Lol. On the technical side of things....... It looks so damn EPIC! Wonder which between this, The Last Of Us, and Beyond Two Souls will look better.

The only time Kratos was ever vulnerable was when he left his tunic too long in the dryer and it shrunk leaving his tackle exposed to attack.

I like what they're doing with Kratos in showing his transformation from Spartan general to God killer. From badass to uber-badass. We've seen him in vulnerable moments before, especially in Chain of Olympus, but to see the human side of him turn so cold will be very interesting to see.
