Digital Foundry vs. God of War: Ascension

Digital Foundry: "Three years have passed and new milestones in PS3 development are few and far between, so we were curious to see the extent to which Sony Santa Monica could improve and optimise its new game between demo and final release. To put this achievement into perspective, we juxtaposed the improvements with a similar comparison between the God of War 3 demo and its retail debut." (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

Sony Santa Monica is really good. Though, because of the prequel nature, it wont go down like GoW2 did at the end of ps2. Also, i think the team was split working on a next gen title. They used this game to try a new element of multiplayer but it seems most are not huge fans. That being said, Sony will get their end of the gen bombshell in the Last of Us, and as far as I am concerned Ascension is a great game, as we got more GoW before the ps3 is replaced. I do believe that when we talk about the end of this gen, GoW A wont be talked about. It will be TLoU, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, GTA5, and Watch Dogs. Thkugh the last two may be released on next gen also. Oh yeah, and Beyond. Not a bad year though and I am glad they made the game.

Interesting... I didn't notice the "significant" leap from GoW3, but that's probably because GoW3 was pretty amazing when it came out. I'm glad to see praise for the technical ability of this game... seems most reviews didn't even mention how good it looks and runs, like they did for GoW3. I'm about half way through Ascension, and there have been some epic moments. Gonna use my 48 hour XP boost this weekend.

but they did pretty much every review praise the gfx as the best on consoles
and by the way GOW3 won all the gfx awards in 2010

if TLOU/Beyond didn't manage to top GOWA gfx
i see GOWA win all the gfx awards this year

GoW Ascension is still a great game on its own, but GoW III was just... utterly ridiculous. I swear that as I played that game, I felt glimpses of next gen screaming to shine through. Kind of impressive what Santa Monica can still do with the PS3.

I have a feeling The Last of Us will make me feel that way too... :)

That boss battle was the most epic boss battle EVER as a 1st boss until I played GOWA. The boss battles are just freakin RIDICULOUS in GOWA & I cant believe reviewers saying kratos aint badazz enough.

If thats the case then why not say lara croft isnt badazz enough in the new tomb raider because she never was that weak in her other games & dont even bring up its a prequal because so is GOWA. See what i mean? Reviewers find the stupidest crap to rant about in GOWA but when tomb raider brings a weaker lara in the mix, there is no COMPLAINTS.
