God of War: Ascension is Shaping Up to be Something Special | gamrReview

gamrReview: "Expectedly, Ascension impresses visually, utilizing the usual fantastic lighting effects, finely detailed landscapes and enormous background Titans, superb fluid movements, and excellent execution cinematics. Running around the desert themed level was a blast." (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

I enjoyed Power Stone 2 in the arcades & Dreamcast looks like this will be twice as fun

its so good i had a chance to play it at comic con this year. i was skeptical at first but its very fluid and fun to play.
GraveLord  +   1137d ago
Me too. I already know single player will be amazing so I just hope multi-player has a lot of replay value.
majiebeast  +   1137d ago
Really hope we get a beta of the multiplayer.

The Playstation blog should be putting a post up about some big news for this game today.
PinkFunk  +   1137d ago
Fer reals?
Godchild1020  +   1137d ago
I don't know if that was a legitimate question or just a joke. Anyway, yes, for real. Here is the link... http://blog.us.playstation....

Legitimate question, but with a hint of 'lol'.

I was just going over the e3 presentation and some multiplayer demos the other day, getting hyped up. The Santa Monica team is freakin' gifted. So i'm only too glad to hear there's news poppin up today.

...but what could it be?

The amazing thing is that this game even looks better than God of War 3. Cant wait to play this incredible Sony exclusive.

Exclusive exclusive exclusive..................... ....

Así se hace.

loving its progress.. cant wait to buy this
DigitalRaptor  +   1137d ago
The campaign is going to be stellar. That, we already know and it's a lovely thought. It's looking visually splendorous too.

What excites me more is the multiplayer cause it's definitely something different and bold. What impresses me most is how they've translated the signature gameplay into an online multiplayer arena. It's gonna be so fresh when it comes out. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Multi player will definitely keep this one going.
chukamachine  +   1137d ago
No different then all the other god of war games.

They are all special.
PockyKing  +   1137d ago
Just replayed God of War a few days ago and all I can say is that I'm very excited for this one to come out. I don't give a shit if it's more of the same, sometimes more of the same is all I need.
Sketchy_Galore  +   1137d ago
I have to admit I'm suffering from franchise fatigue with God of war. I've bought and enjoyed every game in the series but what is this now? The third prequel? Or at least the third untold story that happened between the major events of Kratos' life that we already know about? What is this one set between the moment he was saved by Ares and the moment he arrived back home after the battle? Then what's next? The thrilling tale of what happened between the time he dropped off screen and reappeared a few seconds later in God of war 2? I love everything about God of war but I think we're ready for a new character and a new story. I feel like I know all I need to know about Kratos Auditore.
Conzul  +   1137d ago
I would normally disagree with a comment like this, but since Kratos has such a basic personality, I too wouldn't mind it if my mythology fix went in a different direction.
BitbyDeath  +   1137d ago
I'd be interested to see what he does after the 3rd entry though given that most of the gods are defeated.
Tontus  +   1136d ago
This is the first prequel to be made internally at Sony Santa Monica and it's not for a handheld device.

God of War: Ascension will be it's own awesome self-contained story showing his human side and what it took for him to break free from his servitude to Ares. It also gives the developers to try out new gameplay mechanics and for gamers who've yet to play a game in the series to jump in right at the begininng.

I think God of War IV will release on PS4 and start a new trilogy like Halo 4 and will move into a new Mythology. I don't think they ever will or should replace Kratos, he's by far the most iconic and beloved character on Playstation and they would be better of creating a new series than continue without him, just imagine the outrage from millions of God of War fans if they found out Kratos was being replaced? It would be insane and very damaging for the franchise.

At the end of God of War III Kratos has come to terms with everything he's done and his vengeance has been satiated, if he's still alive he's now at peace. If the story continues after God of War III I think Kratos' character would be a lot more human again since he sacrificed all of his Godly power and has relieved himself of the burdens of his past making him no longer angry at everything and everyone. It will be like having a new character anyway, then hopefully we'll get to see him settle down and fall in love again and perhaps have more children? Obviously something has to go wrong and he will do anything to save his family... Yeah, I'm already getting excited for what's possible in God of War IV when only the inevitable masterpiece God of War: Ascension should be my focus, I just love the franchise so damn much!

It is obvious that Ascension will be better than GOW III, Especially in Colors and Level Design .

Santa Monica never dissapoints.
chrisarsenalsavart  +   1137d ago
First time i saw Ascension, i thought i was looking at a CGI movie.
From the lighting effect to the textures, the game looks just incredible.

On the story side i wish they could have start another story line.
Imagine a GOW in the nordic mythology.
What do you guys think?

jbiz320  +   1137d ago

sdplisken  +   1136d ago
i need this game now
Nac  +   1136d ago
The idea of Multiplayer has grown on me. I think I am really gonna like the way things turn out.
Tontus  +   1136d ago
God of War: Ascension is going to be a masterpiece! I can't wait to play that game, already have that awesome Collector's Edition pre-ordered.

I really can't wait to rip apart millions of God of War fans online! It's going to be so addicting I just know it, the game will probably never come out of my PS3 next year.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1136d ago
Hopefully, i can't wait till the rumored beta comes to Playstation.
