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!

The story is too old to be commented.

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

Is that their complaints? Oh my god, Kotaku XD Like you couldnt get any lower.

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.

well butter my nuts and call me biscuit!

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.
