Hard Reset: My experiences with God Of War have always been iffy at best. I played GOW 1 and enjoyed myself, until I got to the end where the game promptly crashed, meaning I could never finish off Ares. Truly annoying. God Of War 3 I also played. It looked pretty, played okay, but the story was very hokey and there was so much repetition. So, when I sat down to play God Of War: Ascension, my expectations were tepid to say the least. The demo I played was the same one that was shown at E3 2012, so there was no new surprises from what I saw, but when I put my hands on the controller to play, things started to kick in.
