God of War Ascension: The Kotaku Review

For the first four and a half hours of the new God of War, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the game was made by malfunctioning robots.

They were given the God of War formula and with swiveling clamp-hands, they made what is technically a God of War game. Kratos is angry! Chain-blades must be swung! Beasts will be gored! The first level must be as epic as Mount Olympus! You will be given extra attack moves! And then more attack moves! And then more—the ones you'll never use! (God of War: Ascension, PS3) -

My Two Least-Favorite Things:
-The sexing-up of enemies that I am then required to cleave into bloody bits. Gross.
-Block-pushing puzzles. Give me a micro-transaction to skip them, and I'll pay double.

What part don't these reviewers understand?
It's rated M-Fuc#%$ngmature
What a joke gaming journalism is lol

Seriously wtf going on with "oh my god this game is too violence! "
If your kids get thier hands on a rated M games then it's your own fault.
If you couldn't handle it, play rated G games.

Rated M is not illegal so stfu.

Lol. They go on and on about how much they didn't like it but where you see "should you play this game?" A big green YES. Lmao!

And what is with all the reviewers god of war hate?! It's only the second god of war game this gen. I can name lots of other franchises that already have four this gen. God of war is awesome. Here's hoping for a Kratos adventure on ps4!

Actually it sounds like he almost hates himself for liking it so much.

He wanted to punish the game because he's played GoW so many times before, but it just felt so damn good he couldnt help but continue.

Contrary to popular belief on N4G, Kotaku likes a lot of PS3 exclusives.

M rated games are suppose to push it in gore. Do these journalist know how awesome Manhunt is ? It's not a good M rated game if ain't making people squirm.

He played GoW and said the game is gory...gross!...... Dafuq!

I knew this game was going to get hated on for being a ps3 exclusive game like others before have, but some of the complaints are really dumb. Its either kratos isn't angry enough, the games too violent/gory(it is rated M for a reason)and then you even have some clown crying about the name of a trophy.

This website needs to burn down in glorious flames. Such idiocy is not welcomed in this industry.

How many times does one need to down vote the site before it is banned? N4G mods aren't doing their jobs

I really dont know what the hell reviewers are playing in order to rate this game. Or at least WTF they were expecting for it to be.

Just play it, if it is fun, awesome! They should just stop putting moronic excuses on why they should not like the game, when they are having lots of fun with it. I really don't get it.

Most reviews of this game are like this, either they dislike Kratos because he is not angry, (when before they hated him because he was angry), or they dont like him to kill everything including women. It feels like any other GOW game, DAFAQ? is that a bad thing? HELL no, because you are having lots of fun with it.

It is like if they were payed for hating the game. I know that sounds kind of dumb, but most reviews about this game dont make sense.

SO WHAT THE CRAP IS HAPPENING!?
