God Of War: Ascension Single Player Demo Impressions - STFUandPLAY

STFUandPLAY's Tony Polanco writes:

"After that disappointing multiplayer beta, I had lost almost all interest in God Of War: Ascension. I’ve been a fan of the series ever since it premiered on the Playstation 2 in 2005 but that MP nearly killed the anticipation I had for the new game. Thank the Gods of Olympus that Sony has put out a single player demo that has reinvigorated my desire to play this game."

"The first thing that stuck out was the graphics. Simply put, they are fucking incredible! Remember all of those games that Sony showed off last week during their event? God Of War: Ascension either looks as good or better than them. It’s insane! This is what happens when the full power of the Playstation 3 is utilized by a team that knows what they’re doing. The game looks stunning. So stunning in fact that it was hard to concentrate on the actual game at some points. My mind couldn’t handle the overwhelming visual overload. I considered God Of War III to be the best looking game of this generation but Ascension blows it out of the water visually. I could go on longer about the graphics but yeah, they’re unbelievably good. TOO good in fact."

The demo is drop jaw gorgeous!

Enjoying the scenery is as fun as playing the game.

They change the grab button to R1 when it used to be circle. It felt funny at 1st but I got use to it. I do miss the big circle over the enemy head though. The game is amazing.

Soldierone1998d ago

Yeah through out it I kept pressing circle and going "wtf grab!" and then realizing it was R1.

HappyWithOneBubble1997d ago

LOL yeah I was doing the same thing.

"After that disappointing multiplayer beta"

Wait whaaa!!!!!!

I thought the beta was epic!

Its ok, its a Tor Davis website. They have to downplay something in PS games.

Don't be foolish its ignorant fanboys like you that give this site a bad name and gaming fans in general. Everyone can have their own opinions accept it.

@Sonic... the MP isn't too bad but not that great either... just generic fighting... not comparable to a pure fighting game.. more of a fun thing to do on the side once in a while imo.

Tony's preferred console is Playstation......

"just generic fighting"

I disagree, GOW's gameplay is far from generic. I think the MP really captured what GOW is all about, just in MP form. Solid and fluid combat, responsive controls, in your face action and brutality, and just giving you an epic feeling in general after each kill. WHICH IS WHAT GOD OF WAR FANS LOVE. (They should add more brutal kills and more weapon variety though).

"the MP isn't too bad but not that great either"

Maybe in YOUR opinion. But judging from the MAJORITY of people who've played it. They've seemed to really like it.

creatchee1998d ago (Edited 1998d ago )

Why is it okay to trust the majority when it comes to God of War, but not Call of Duty?

I'm a huge GOW fan and can't wait for Ascension - I'm just asking a question.

Skips1998d ago


Because in Ascension, things have actually changed or progressed for the better? lol

Same can't be said for COD.
