God of War: Ascension - Single Player Demo Insight and Impressions

SchollA from Console ControllUs pronounced console-control-us writes:
The Demo is Epic yall!

The term watching it and playing it are two different things rings very true, at least in this instance. I wasn’t all that blown away when I watched the 30 minute gameplay footage that’s been online, typical God of War stuff ( I’m already sold on that) but when you get the controller in your hands maaaan buddy!

So initially I had trouble with the screen settings (I got too cute with it) and didn’t quite understand what the settings were requesting, however the second playthrough I nailed it perfect.

Welp, Kratos is baaaaack way back even — like prequel back, and apparently he’s in big trouble with 3 Sisters collectively called “Furies” well, specifically one of them I believe her name is — if I’m not mistaken, Megaera. I won’t spoil the rest but this demo shows off a lot of different gameplay elements and you should get a good feel on what to expect when the full retail releases. L... (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

i thought the demo was OKAY, nothing really blew me away, like when i played GOW3. maybe its because i know the potential of the PS4, and now my eyes are spoiled :(

I've not played the demo, because I know that game is gonna deliver.

I thought the demo was pretty epic - got me pumped for the full game.

I had no worries with the single player campaign. Now i want to see what else they got for the multiplayer after the beta test.

I played the demo and thought it was incredible! But..I still wish Cory Balrog would game direct another iteration in the series. Todd Pappy did an AMAZING job on God of War III and will amaze people with Ascension, but I still believe god of war II was the best in the series.

Todd Papy? God of War III? Don't you mean Stig Asmussen?
SlyFamous02  +   1072d ago
Yip, Asmussen was the man at the helm of GOW3.

Pappy was art director for 3, and is at the helm for ascension.

This is basically gow3. I've seen nothing to suggest otherwise. Fresh new coat of paint, same gameplay. I've been playing gow for years and im exhausted. There's so much they can expand on yet they fail to take the risks

If you think it is just GOW 3 with a fresh coat of paint then you couldn't have played the demo at all

I've played the demo, explain to me wtf is different besides the setting and story. The moves are the same, even the finishing moves. How many times can i rip an enemies head off or tear someone in half? Not saying the series is getting stale, just saying there's more potential there

So what would be wrong with more of the same even if it was?

But anyway, they overhauled the mechanics a lot and the gameplay varies quite a bit more. Anyone who was expecting some rediculous huge jump in graphics is just deluded because this hardware is about maxed out at this point, that's why they are coming out with next gen stuff soon.

Dont get me wrong I'm glad to see sony supporting a product even into its twilight years, however there are limitations to what it can do so dont try to oversell it to yourself.

But more on topic the demo is awsome and the differences are subtle but defintily noticable if you play it. They actually listened to the fans, go play it and see for yourself man.

GOW is epic!!

I've played it and was underwhelmed by it. Not to say it won't deliever, it just wasn't a demo I felt compelled me to hype it up more than it has been thus far. Nothing stood out as a wow factor just the typical god of war characteristics and elements I've grown a custome to with god of war. Does it mean that the game won't deliever? Nope, but I'm not going to lie and call this demo epic
