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.
Let slip the dogs – we review God of War: Ascension
7 September 2012
Excerpt: In the time before the Titans, before the Gods of Olympus, the wrath of the Primordials (the beings that forged the Earth) raged out of control. From this rage, the Furies were brought forth. Neither Titan nor God, they are bound to no one. They are the enforcers of honor, the bane of traitors.
Pros: Rock solid graphical presentation, Storyline is well-paced and interesting, Combat mechanics and new targeting system ups the enjoyment level overall, Signature kills are satisfying and don’t quickly grow old, Massive reduction in quicktime events, Multiplayer is a welcome addition
Cons: Some infuriatingly difficult sections, Occasional sound oddities, Camera can get stuck behind things during signature kills, What the hell is Qujikphiueeekmjquj? (and no, that’s not a typo)
Excerpt: Kratos har været igennem tre vilde eventyr rige spil, først i to omgange på Playstation 2 og sidste gang vi mødte ham var i God of War 3 på Playstation 3. Kratos eventyr foregår alle sammen i den gamle græske mytologiske verden, hvor slangekvinder, sure guder og sexede gudinder er del af hverdagen.
Pros: Fantastisk Grafik., God Balance mellem kampe og Puzzles., Underholdende multiplayer del.
Cons: Historien er ikke så episk som i forgængerne., Manglen af de kendte guder.
