By far the weakest of the series

A. Parker, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: God of War: Ascension was not the game I expected it to be. Where as the previous 3 games and 2 portable games have been stand along saga's with a good story line, great visuals, and chilling music, this game was lacking. I would suggest a play through for anyone interested in Krato's story, but would caution any others about this game. Go pick up the God of War Saga Collection first, then decide if you really want this one.

Not as good as God of War 3

J. Olmstead, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: I've loved all of the games in this series, and I have to say that Ascension is probably the weakest of the 4 games that have been released on consoles (I'm not including the PSP versions, which I haven't played). God of War 1 and 2 on PS2 are really great, and I was much looking forward to PS3 graphics for the next game. GoW3 came out and I bought it and played all the way through it day 1. I absolutely loved it, and it was graphically beautiful.

Disappointing Last Ditch Attempt

  • Summary: I was hopeful for this game since the first 3 GoW's were so awesome, but it failed. The first problem was when I turned it on and it required over 3GB...
  • Pros: It's God of War
  • Cons: Controls, Pointlessly Hard Gameplay, Insane Sized Updates

  • Summary: I found this to be a less enjoyable addition to the god of war series. I would only recommend this to people who like to play mindlessly cause you will lose interest.

Worst of the Series

Dat Hong, Amazon
19 September 2013
  • Summary: I loved God of War and played every iteration of it on every Sony format. However, something just seemed off with this game. The game play was familiar but felt weird. The story line is terrible and the camera zooms out too far. On a 55 inch TV, Kratos looks like he is 2 inches big sometimes. If you do not play this, you are not missing out on the GOW saga. It is just terrible. Just rent this one or skip it.

Worst in the series....

JeebS, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: So I've played all the GOW games including the PSP versions and I have to say this is the most boring in the series. I tend to always jump in on hard difficulty with these games as I feel the challenge is usually good thing. Well, this is definitely not the case with Ascension. The combat feels disconnected compared to other games in the series. On hard you really can't risk doing a full 3 time combo since you'll just get snapped out of it and take some nice damage.

not great

Travis, Amazon
20 July 2013
  • Summary: Let me first start by saying it's God of War so its not a terrible game. Kratos is still badass, but this is nowhere near as good as 3. In 3 your fighting and killing gods hand to hand combat with me most famous and powerful figures in Greek mythology. Your taking down titans, creatures as big as skyscrapers, In ascension your fighting these three sisters who kinda have powers. Your fighting bugs, and lots of goat men.

Ungodly difficult at times

Kelly Jonathan Thompson, Amazon
28 May 2013
  • Summary: The game is great! But for me, it has little replay value because its almost impossible to complete on anything other than the easiest difficulty setting. I am big into gaming and I have always loved the God of War series, but this one has done it in for me. multiplayer is a blast! When I could get into a game. With excellent internet speeds, it would sometimes take 10 to 15 minutes just to find a game.

Only worth $10

Patrick, Amazon
22 March 2013
  • Summary: The Kratos statue pictured is from the God of War Ascension Limited edition. The rock base is hollow cheap plastic and Kratos himself isn't a much higher quality. If you pay more than $10 for this, you're going to be disappointed.
