MasonicGamer.com - God of War: Ascension is actually a prequel to the entire series, which gives Sony Santa Monica a chance to start fresh with the story. However, Kratos is as badass as ever, and even has a few new tricks up his sleeve. Or are they old tricks? Prequel continuity is hard to figure out!
The demo plays much like God of War games of the past. I started off on a dock with a small horde of weak badguys in my way. Time to bust out those Blades of Chaos to take them out! There’s really no point in describing this aspect, as it hasn’t changed much since the original game. However, you can now wield sub-weapons you find littered around, and this adds a little variety to the standard combos.
