God of War: Ascension | Review (Only Single Player)

"When you have a series like God of War, one that built its name on massive scale, fluid pacing and an extremely refined combat system, it’s tough to figure out where exactly it can go from there, especially since it has already become a fully formed trilogy with all loose ends seemingly tied up. What exactly could another game in the franchise add or expand upon when it comes to the already solid framework?

Well, how about the pale-skinned brutish antihero himself, Kratos? That’s what Santa Monica had in mind when crafting God of War: Ascension, a prequel that aims to explore the character of Kratos and delve into his psychology and motivations during the most important and tragic time of his origin. Did they pull it off and make a game that truly ascends, or are you better off stripping down to your boxers, painting yourself red and white, and running around town screaming to get your GoW fix? We’re about to find out." (Michael Urban, OnlySP.com) (God of War: Ascension, PS3) 7.5/10

This game is nowhere near the 10/10 god of war 3 that game was a powerhouse

Ascension is a better game than god of war 3. The combat is better, the graphics are more polished, and its more difficult. The only thing I would say is that 3 had better moments and the camera isn't as problematic. The god of war series never had that much to boast about in terms of story anyway, except the first one. All in all, its a better game than its predecessors in most areas. I just dont see the problem.

Uhhhg, too many words to read. Just say 6.55/19.

It's all about the number at the end you know.

Your review of his review is crap. Please, do the internet a favor and do some research before you review another review. Your opinion is completely distasteful. Are you like, 12?

You know, there's such a thing as the reply feature.

Awesome game indeed!!

I never understood why people cared so much about review scores, it's just someone's opinion. The only one that really matters is your own. IGN gave low scores to a couple of my favorite games this gen.

Just remember, anything lower than an 8 sucks. /s

This game is at least an 8.5-9/10. It is the best GOW game yet!
Soldierone  +   800d ago
I really like it. The thing I don't like is it didn't build off the strengths GOW3 had, but it did take other aspects of the game and expanded on it. Such as bigger environments etc....

My friend the combat! I wish I had this kind of combat in GoW3. How you can easily go from using the chains to fist fighting. Or chains combined with enemies weapons. Really fun combat.
TheFallenAngel  +   800d ago
I been playing the game a lot. The story is rather lacking but the combat, it's the best then any other God of War. I like how I'll use the blades of chaos and quickly go with fists fights. I also like how you can combo between the blades of chaos and the weapons of the enemies. Yes the game is not a 10/10 but its no way in hell under 8/10. 8.5-9 is what this game is. God of War 3 still my favorite.

great amazing game , my only complaint after playing it is the series is starting to feel kind of "samey". A great "Samey". Its alot like the new super mario series. Amazing games but more of the same.
