The series is known and well loved for its outstanding button-mash, combo-stacking action and the “hardcore” inspiring Kratos character.
God of War: Ascension is unique in that it deals with the backstory of the Kratos character, serving as a prequel to the entire series. But does it reinvent the series after so many titles?" 2/5
