From the review, "The God of War is starting to show his age. God of War: Ascension is the seventh game in franchise, and takes us all the way back to the beginnings of Kratos’ defiance to the gods. Even with an all-new plot, GoW: Ascension fails to captivate the imaginations and attention of players who fell in love with the GoW 1-3. It’s obvious the same amount of passion wasn’t burning through Sony Santa Monica this time around. While the game is still visually lovely and technically sound, most everything else is generic at this point."
