DailyGame- God of War: Ascension Review

DG:Though the series has been criticized for being a squandered opportunity in the area of storytelling, basically going from a classic Greek tragedy to a caricature of misogynist attitudes and violence, I have not found myself disappointed at all. In fact, I really like the story. I’m not here to criticize its narrative — many others have done and will continue to do that. I’m here to tell you whether or not I found the game enjoyable, and I absolutely did. God of War: Ascension is awesome. (God of War: Ascension, PS3) 9/10

I bet this gets less attention than the reviews giving out low scores.

The sad state of gaming journalism.

8 is not a low score which most sites agreed on. Those n4g "low score" review post got a lot of hits because fanboys were complaining about the lower than expected scores.

sad is the removal of a trophy because some people, which probably will not buy the game anyway, didnt like it.

You can still get the trophy in its original form provided you disconnect the PS3 from the Internet before playing the game. That's how I got it.

I'm about half way in I think, and I really enjoy the gameplay, the killing is awesome and that's most important for me. The story doesn't really interest me in this game, but I can live with that because the gameplay (play it on hard, normal just doesn't do it for me anymore but I knew that since GoW3) and presentation are so amazing.
For a prequel I expected something else, and I really hope that will be done on PS4, so besides a GoW4 that continues the tale of Kratos after he wasted all of Olympia, I hope we also get another prequel that starts with Kratos the mortal ranking up in the Spartan Army, the battle with the Barbarians half way, where you get the blades, and ending with you, the player, killing your wife and child, so before the events in Ascension.

2 full blown God of War games per generation is just right for me, and for me the formula doesn't need to change at all. In fact, while playing Ascension, I really couldn't tell which game is the best in the series. I enjoy them all the same, which is a lot. Even all the little tweaks and different weapons in every game, everytime I play one of them it feels right. SSM know what they're doing, they are making these games for the fans and I can appreciate that.

Seriously, the review scores for this game have been very suspect to me. Ascension is one of the best GOWs to date, i don't understand where the 7s and 6s are coming from.
