God of War Ascension Review | EuroGamer

EuroGamer: "Ascension is a game of distinct halves then, each with its own rules and ambitions - as so many blockbuster video games have become. As such, it's difficult to judge as a whole. The single-player campaign is uneven and, at its best, fails to match the zenith of what's gone before - a myth growing weaker with each retelling. But the punchy multiplayer broadens the game's aspirations and its appeal in a welcome way, offering a refined competitive arena. That may have a lot more to do with contemporary fashions in competitive video gaming than ancient myths - but it offers just the embellishment that's lacking elsewhere."

Another review where there's no distinct negatives. Just things like, the 'feel' or 'not as epic as God of War 3' despite them including the $44 million budget for that game.

Sounds like I either have to become a reviewer or just stop reading big sites reviewing games.

This is possibly the worst review I have read for the game so far, reviewer doesn't even mention any details regarding how the new combat system works, which from my 3 hours with the game, is one of the biggest changes in Ascension. He also barely mentions any details regarding the new level design ( the village of Kirra for instance), and the platforming ( the sliding parts), both of which underwent major changes from the previous entries.

This reads like a comparison to GOW3, rather than a review for Ascension, no idea why Eurogamer keeps handing Simon Parkin AAA titles to review, his reviews usually lack details, and barely scratch the surface.
