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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: So I finished God of War: Ascension and it started out to be a great game but did not carry the bang it had for the early part of the campaign. The ending was a huge disappointment! I just don't feel the campaigns of games should be over shadowed by the new craze of multiplayer gaming. I don't see that as being everyone's cup of tea and if that is what's to come for gaming I think that will be a bad change.
Summary: This game is not like the other GOW titles. I usually like the GOW games, and although the gameplay is very repetitive, I enjoy the story and the bosses. However, GOW Ascension is a joke! If you think the previous titles are repetitive, this is much worse. The bosses suck, and are all pretty similar. There are times, when the saving engine totally sucks...
Summary: I'm a big fan of the God of War series, but this game is just a step back. The gameplay is changed from God of War 3, and it's for the worst. The multiplayer looses its appeal quickly (and in my opinion, isn't even all that enjoyable), so there's not much to the game after the story. In short, God of War: Ascension is great if you get to watch someone else play it, because as usual it's visually stunning. It's not so fun once you have to put the controller in your hands.
