Conclusion: Is God of War Ascension a must have or a must play game? The answer to that is simply “YES”. If you’re a fan of the franchise then you definitely need a Kratos fix and Sony Santa Monica definitely gives you one here.
Excerpt: Despite the rather ambiguous ending to God of War 3 (I don’t want to spoil it for those who didn’t play it… but if you haven’t, you should), I was pretty melancholy because, at the time, I thought that was the end of one of my most favorite characters in gaming.
Excerpt: To understand this God of War: Ascension review, you must understand my first foray into the God of War series. I had just had an unpleasant day at work, I wanted to play a game to escape, and I spotted the demo for God of War 3.
Excerpt: franchise never relied solely upon the stellar gameplay. The main character, Kratos, was a bad-ass of mythic proportions (pun intended) and fans must attribute part of their entertainment to his reckless brutality, his horribly scarring past, and his epic seething rage.
