God of War: Ascension Review | El33tonline

Tom at El33tonline writes:

"What God of War: Ascension lacks from a narrative and pacing standpoint, it more than makes up for by offering one of the most technically impressive and thrilling PS3 exclusives you’ll ever play. Kratos’ quest to free himself from Ares’ control takes him on an adventure which you won’t soon forget, from beautiful underwater caverns to the towering statue of Apollo gazing out over the Aegean Sea." (God of War: Ascension, PS3) 4/5

Kratos needs to take a breather. His story has been told to death, literally.
6 freaking games following this dude around with his anger issues. The ending of 3 was perfect aside from the blood trail after the credits suggesting that he is still alive.
For a story based game like this where the narrative is focused on the character, 6 games is just too many.
Mario can get away with it because his games barely have a story, they aren't character stories.
SSM need to cut their ties with Kratos and work on a new IP.

doesnt matter, as long as the gameplay is great! I love to play a racing game but everybody knows there is almost never any story in them. Some games are really made around the story and others ar not, and in mythology context there isn't much to say in first place. For example i bought Heavy Rain for its story and drama, and a God of War for its gameplay awesomeness.

Santa Monica know how to make a game look and feel more spectacular than the previous ones were, and that all that matters for us gamers. You think Kratos needs to breath, fine just dont buy the game but just for the graphics, the technique and the awesome gameplay GOW: Ascension is worth the try!

2 games per gen and people still bitch about it
How about Gears making a prequel too and NOBODY is bitching about it??

Last I checked Psp and ps3 are both 7th generation devices and they both have 2 God of War games. That's 4 games this gen. Then there's the ps2 remakes. And the psp remakes and the ultimate all in one remake.
ALL 6 God of war games are playable on the PS3 is the bottomline here. And they all follow one guy.

I'm so looking forward to playing Ascension. There's nothing that can compete with the epic vistas and brutal combat of a God of War game!
