IGN Spain: "God of War Ascension is one of the best 'me against the world' games ever created. Its premise is solid and almost flawless. It has a fun and acceptably long campaign, and a multiplayer mode's pros outweigh its cons, although we may require more content. Its only fault is being a bit more of the same, copying the formula that characterizes the franchise and tweaking certain aspects of its gameplay. Is this an issue? For a fan of the series, certainly not."
