Summary: If you are a fan of the others than you probably won't be disappointed. Playing on hard I realized the dodging controls are slowed down a lot from previous god of wars. Which is a huge agro point and gets under my skin like no other. You would expect to be able to dodge in mid attack, but for some reason they chose not to have that.
Summary: Just a quick side story, I've literally followed all the God of War games from God of War 1 on the PS2 to Ascension. To be honest, my favorite God of war games were God of War 1, 2, Ghosts of Sparta and GOW3. (though I enjoyed God of War 3 less than previous efforts) Anyway, here's my review- Graphics- Graphically, God of War Ascension's a mixed bag. When you first play the game's first level, it looks amazing.
Summary: Well, it is a God of War game. You play as Kratos. You kill hundreds of people. You kill a titan here, a god-like being over there. It's all good, but it isn't that great, and I say this with regards to action games in general and how to compares with previous God of War installments. Let me be clear and point out that the game still plays exceptionally well. On a technical level, the game runs as smoothly as ever, no matter what is happening on screen.
Summary: I honestly think it's hard to top the last GoW. That game was simply phenomenal. Although this game was fun, and the graphics were still great - it just didn't draw me in. The last GoW left me wanting more, so I played the game again immediately. This one I beat and haven't picked up again. I think a few of the bosses were underwhelming, the story was lacking, and mostly it just felt like a grind.
Summary: I want to start off by saying that I am a huge God of War fan. I've played almost all the installments (didn't play the PSP releases) of the series on all the difficulties and had a lot of fun. So when this game came out I knew I had to buy it (after it dropped in price)...but I have to say that this game was kind of a let down. It isn't a bad game but there are some changes that were made that ended up hindering the game.
Summary: I have always loved hack and slash games, and with each new release I get excited about the new God of War game. Yet every time I end up selling it back to GameStop later on. Although this game is great for the first hour or two it quickly becomes repetitive and you find yourself hating the next few days as you finish it. Simply because doing and seeing the same things over and over and over again gets pretty agitating.
