eGamer writes: "God of War: Ascension is best described as a lukewarm experience. The single-player campaign doesn’t do a whole lot to impress apart from visually, and nothing really stands out. It’s still good, it’s still God of War, but it’s a noticeably weaker offering than its predecessors, and isn’t all that memorable. On the other hand, the multiplayer is surprisingly entertaining, and a sure highlight of the game. To be honest, if you’re here only because you want more Kratos and God of War, then Ascension will be enough for you and you’ll both enjoy it and be satisfied. But if you wanted something to rival or better God of War III, and its predecessors, you definitely won’t find it here. Ascension is for Kratos die-hards and those who love new multiplayer experiences, because that part of the game is really good."
