And despite the disposable multiplayer, plodding puzzle sections and fist-in-mouth frustration of some of the platforming I can’t deny that -as a series fan- there’s an undeniable blood-soaked magic to the combat. It’s exhilarating when you get Kratos into top gear and manage to maintain 100+ combos by leaping up and pulling enemies in with your hungry chained blades, bounce them off the floor before pulling up another for more and thundering back down to the ground in a storm of ice and fire. More than even the impressive GOWIII, Ascension just stops you in your tracks with how goddamn amazing it looks. Seriously, I often struggled to imagine where the PS4 has left to go. I tell you what though; I can’t wait to find out. I’ll see you all there.
