God of War: Ascension has the best and most refined gameplay in the series. The story is also more complex than the story of the last three whose main plot was "kill Ares or kill Zeus". Also, with the introduction of multiplayer, they've actually added worth to the $59 purchase since now there's more actual game to be played.

Best of the series.

and the gfx the best on consoles by far
even DF couldn't believe how it topped GOW3 on that 6 years old console

"Side by side with God of War 3, the visuals improvements are vast - we're looking at substantial enhancements to lighting, physics, animation, and a radical overhaul to the effects pipeline, all of which serve to frame some spectacular action. The battles with titans such as Hecatonchires are stand-out, making for some of better roller-coaster rides we've seen from the series thus far."

"So, years from now, will we be looking back at God of War: Ascension as one of those key video games that defied the technical limitations of the host platform? From a technological standpoint, while its enhancements are legion, the game never astonishes in the same way that God of War 3 did in its opening levels. That perfect, brilliant melding of ambitious concept and technological execution and the sense that we were seeing something truly new and exciting just isn't quite there. But in the here and now, as a standard bearer for the state-of-the-art in PS3 tech, Ascension takes some beating."
