gamrReview: "God of War: Ascension has the weakest single-player experience in the franchise. There is simply no getting around that. Changes in the combat and an evocative art style are welcome, but many of the single-player elements feel tired at this point in the series. Surprisingly, it’s multiplayer that proves to be the main selling point of God of War: Ascension, providing the polish and creativity that I had hoped to see in the single-player. God of War: Ascension may not be the best game in the franchise, but it’s certainly the most ambitious."
