God of War Ascension Review | Paste

Paste: "For anyone who remembers Kratos at the beginning—the real beginning eight years ago, not the manufactured origins of Ascension—the whole thing is just depressing now. You tell yourself maybe this is the last time, maybe the Ghost of Sparta is finally ready to grow up and move along. And if not, well, maybe it’s time to stop answering the phone." (God of War: Ascension, PS3) 4.5/10

etc. etc.

I think we all know what people feel about this game. Game deserves no lower than an 8. Somewhere in between 8 and 9 IMO.

Just another site fishing for hits. lol

i really cant believe these reviewers are bashing this game!

I dont know whats wrong with this people and their absurd review/score.

Maybe ascension is not so awesome as GoW ... but for sure its not a broken game !

Anyway, amazing scores from the users and to be honest I never expect users score so high Ascension (usually they are pretty harsh).

I was looking for that other BS review on Ascension today, a 3/10 from GamingLives or something, guess they whitdrew it. And now this, a cool one and a half point higher.

I finally completed Archi's Challenge and the game this weekend, on Hard and without the 1.3 update, and I can say it's not a broken game, it has a few bugs but it's not broken or unplayable, in fact it's my favourite game in the series. Because of the gameplay, the fighting mechanism just feels right.

A 4.5 resembles a mess, Ascension is not.

The magic is the best in the series. Love using it this time around.

Yeah, you should play Rising and Bayonetta now that you've seen that the gameplay is vastly more important than anything else in these type of games

What a joke of a review

I just downvote the site. I know reviews are opinions, but I think we have all established that anything lower than a 5 should be reserved for games with very broken mechanics, and Gof Of War is not broken.

Fanboys will have their fun with this review "hahah 4.5/10 omg this game sucks", but, they don't realise that this same thing will happen to their 'recious' games also. Be good if all gamers pulled their finger out and downvoted.
I'm not doing it out of spite, but if I think a review is going a fair way against popular opinion, then I feel it has no place (as far as games are concerned).

More clowns trying to get hits again? Another no name site we all know the drill which is... story: WTF and like this site: NO lately I have been using this system pretty oftenly the emergence of no name sites fishing for hits has blown up

Don't lie to your selves. This is the crappiest GOW. Why change the parry system. Why do "the whole camera pans out fight" while u can't see kratos. Oh and the minions are laughable. For me in GOW. The first boss battle sets the tone. 1. Hydra. 2. Statue. 3. Poseidon. Ascension. Monster that came out of a hand. Not one single awesome soundtrack. When I play GoW I need to hear the trumpet soundtrack it gives me moral. And the combat is laughable. This is what happens when you change directors. "Submit" "I would rather die". Is my favourite kratos comeback. Asenscion is the WORST GOW

they changed directors every.single.game.

No way in hell is this game a 4.5/10 looks like another troll review/hit seeker! Makes me sick when some jackass comes along and even suggests that great developers like SSM would even put out a "4.5/10" game, now that's a company that works hard on whatever project they are apart of.

I think the only problem i really have with ascension apart from a game breaking glitch i encountered where the time amulet fucked up on one occasion. Is the storyline.

I'm just not sure where its supposed to fit and at this point they've managed to kratos such an unlikable goon that i don't really care anymore. It just reinforced the fact that narrativewise they've written themselves into a corner.

Time to start the series fresh with a new god of war me thinks or just end it and create a spiritual succsor with a new name entirely.
