God of War: Ascension Takes the Gore Online - Impressions of the Multiplayer Beta

GotGame: It’s hard to say what the weakness of the multiplayer is since it is only a beta with limited features. It ran pretty smoothly with little hiccups. The respawn command seemed to lag a bit though. When the command option pops up it takes a couple seconds before you can actually input it and get back into the game. It was weird but it’s no big deal and I’m sure that’ll be fixed before release. If anything the only down sides I had were the same as just about every multiplayer game out there. (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

I haven't tried. I don't really consider this gametype to be an online game at all but I will give it a whirl once I get some time for it. Is this out on European PS+ already?

I played last night and I have to see say, Santa Monica delivered!
Now let's just hope the SP is just as good! Although to be honest I don't think they will ever be able to top God of War 3.

since i have the SP demo
i tell you gfx and gameplay
ascension is much better than 3 (and i thought that was impossible)
and that's just a demo the gfx will be even better

story wise
i don't know yet
but i think it will
just look at one of the monsters we will face in the SP
see this

Surprisingly very good, nice combos, ways to dodge, break combos, rpg elements with armor and different fighting styles with the different gods. I can't wait to see what the other maps are, the two that are given are really good.

I'm having a blast with the beta so far. It's a LOT more fun and addicting than I thought it would be.

Never played GoW before (don't ask me why,I was wrong) but beta for Ascension blew me off.It is amazing stuff and this is day-one for me.

Didn't know a Beta could do that. Wish mine blew me off :)
Igor89  +   1002d ago
Yeah,it's beta but it's so much fun,for me at least.I'm lvl 16 already.

Sounds positive.

I still haven't played my copies of II HD remake or III yet.... Must get around to doing that some day.

No he was definitely talking about that beta giving him head. Might have to reconsider DLing this. I just can't stand the thought of MP in GoW though. It still kinda sickens me..but I guess I have to get with the times..no more SP games anymore. :(

The most fun i has so far is sending two people flying off the edge and sending arrows down an getting three people at once.I am not listening to the people who claim that it has no lasting appeal seeing that it is only one arena we have played in so far.I can't wait to see how the other arenas are and what tricks and traps they contain.The Hercules arena alone has about four ways the environment can kill you shock wave, falling off the edge, arrow rain and spiked walls.And I am guessing the others will have even more gruesome ones

@ Rhezin.You do know that GOW still has a SP right.Adding MP doesn't mean that they will automatically skimp on the SP.You seem to forget what developer you are talking about.This is Sony Santa Monica, not known for skimping on anything.
