NYP:If you are a God of War fan, you’ll certainly want to pick up Ascension. There is not much in terms of altered style or gameplay, mostly because if it has worked before (it has) why change it now. That said, do not expect the same kind of experience you had with the previous three console titles in the franchise. Ascension falls just shy of being on the same level as its predecessors. The addition of multiplayer is a welcome one and will serve as an outlet for additional hours of gameplay for the most hardcore of fans.
