Like every other game of the god of war trilogy this game is just great a lot of action and battles , there is not time to take a break, if you start to play you will probably stop when you will end the game one more game to the god of war collection. the game is a prequel altough its the last one yet to come i really enjoy the game and i recommened it both for god of war fans and for those who didnt play god of war before.
And is ready to crush his enemies! The story is very good but too short for those who played all the other God of War series. And here comes the online gaming : Connect online and play infinite hours to smash your enemies! This is a "must buy" game for the fans of GOW ! The price is excellent too.
God Of War Ascension is a truly amazing game, brilliant story, great battle system, the enemies were a real challenge, I have never cared much for multiplayer as I do not think its a good fit for such a brilliant series so I cannot comment on that aspect... but the single player campaign is perfect the campaign will last around 10 hours or under if doing a speed run.
God of War has always been one of my all time favorite gaming experiences for two generations, and we have one more huge adventure upon us before the 7th generation closes. God of War 3 was one of the best games on PS3, with a scale unprecedented and a well realized sense of epic (hopefully you know I mean that in the dignified sense) storytelling. Not to mention one of the all time best game play models in the action genre. Ascension follow in the first PS3 entree's footsteps, and it's a fitting coda for Kratos on the PS3. At the end of the day, Ascension is simply another great game that sheds even more light on Kratos and his long journey throughout the series. That's pretty much what I wanted from this release. If you are a God of War fan, you'll want to pick up the next chapter in Krato's saga. Story wise, Ascension is the first game chronology. What's new this time around is Ascension's attempt to give Kratos a much more human side, instead of the downright off-putting, and downright scary at times, Kratos of the later series that most certainly polarizes people (and one that certainly causes debate amongst gamers, but I'll refrain from ranting regarding that notion. Indeed, Ascension is pretty much marked by Kratos as he was during the early days of service to Ares and the others, and Kratos is certainly more of a mortal than a man; you can just tell he is at this particular state. This time around, The Furies are to blame for his troubles, and, as you might expect, Kratos is on another journey to track them down. I won't spoil the story, but what follows is what you would expect from a God of War game, with a more human Kratos being the point of the story. He suffers, suffers, and suffers some more.
Before becoming a god, he was a man! Revenge was born in the fires of betrayal in God of War: Ascension, a prequel to the hit series God of War. It has an epic new story - pre-history in the original God of War, an unexpected and riveting adventure that tells the dark and more humane past of Kratos. It has stunning graphics, requiring maximum performance on the PlayStation 3.
The game is really good. I really loved God Of War III and this one lived up to my expectations. It's got a slightly different set of game mechanics but nothing serious, you will easily get used to it in a matter a few combats. In a way, I liked that they made these changes, its a fresh game and at the same time for all us God Of War fans, its still "God Of War". The addition of multiplayer got me worried at first, now that I have played it, I really liked it. Great game and thus a great buy here at zavvi for such an amazing price.
God of War: Ascension is just, amazing, with the best environments ever and good variation. The difficulty is not that high but, it's got one of the hardest ending of all the series. The cut scenes are amazing, as bloody as GoW 3 and with more puzzles involved, fast scenes (button pressing) and the hot scene that is in every GoW game. If you want good cut scenes, fine history (Knowing Kratos at his beginnings), good puzzles and Blood jumping out of your screen, this is your game ladies and gentlemen. I recommend it as a fan of the saga and as a casual gamer. Nobody is going to hate this game, I'm completely sure.
After being a huge fan of God of War 1-3 I'm quite impressed, that God of War has not reached it Climax at all. God of War Ascension is a very nice add to the God of War series and made a lot of fun to play. I´m very amused by the fast paced multi-player, because I did not even think about something like a multi-player is working for this title. So don't be shy and buy it. You wont be disappointed for sure.
After playing all other God Of War games God of War: Ascension was a must-have. Price is very good and I even got it in german. But...it's too short, graphics don't seem to be better than the forerunner (at least to me), nothing truly new, some (stolen) aspects from other games. Fighting is fun as always, although i'm missing different weapons to carry around.
Without doubt God of War: Ascension is one of the most amazing game for the PS3! This game has breathtaking graphics, as you feel that you are a part of it, delightful and captivating story and its in awesome price! Everyone who likes this genre, and even not should try it, I guarantee - they won't regret it!
God of War: Ascension was not as good as I was hoping but it didn't disappoint me. What I liked: the graphics, it's very impressive game. It is not as easy as the previous GOW games. Combining this with the new combat system and you get a game that rewards your skills. What I didn't like is the direction. It has a lot of cool moments but the way the game unfolds is not as good as the previous GOW games.
