God of War Ascension


There comes a point in time where to much of a good thing becomes, well, a bad thing. You can only take so much of something, regardless of how much you enjoy or like it, before the abundance becomes a detriment. I am afraid that point is almost here...

God of War: Ascension is exactly what one would expect from one of Kratos’ adventures. It’s gritty, action packed, super-violent, and feels as epic as ever. As fun as it is, one can’t help but feel like we have played this game before...perhaps a major...

God of War: Ascension


God of War: Ascension feels like the by-product of a generation that has gone on for far too long. After God of War III wrapped up the trilogy, Ascension attempts to bleed the well of Greek mythology dry even further. The third prequel in the series -...

After all, the God of War series hasn’t changed too much since its debut. God of War III introduced the scale and spectacle capable on modern hardware with a massive budget, but without the same wads of cash and sense of purpose Ascension feels like a...

God of War: Ascension Review


God of War excels when its use of outrageous scale is believable. Kratos is not the centre of Sony Santa Monica's Ancient Greece: his story is a single tale amongst a world of conflict and deceit. Many battles wage around the Spartan General, not...

God of War: Ascension


At face value, God of War: Ascension is a wholly unnecessary game. To be blunt, it's a prequel to a prequel, and doesn't really offer up anything new for the franchise outside of the multiplayer component. In that regard, people who have grown tired of...

God of War: Ascension Review


In truth, the overall quality and widespread appeal of the God of War 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...

God of War: Ascension- PS3


The multiplayer's a bust, but God of War: Ascension's campaign is a gloriously bloody adventure filled with exhilarating combat.

Tight, satisfying combat ; Impressive sense of scale used to great effect ; Revels in its own juvenile bloodiness ; Stunning visuals

Chilled out Kratos isn't anywhere near as exciting as angry Kratos ; Multiplayer lacks originality and compelling modes

It's all very slick and precise, and as you tear out the heart of a fallen medusa after a wonderfully skilful combo, it's hard not to be impressed. The simpler secondary weapon system does wonders here too. Now you can pick up various weapons, such...

God of War: Ascension – PS3 Review


Can you really get too much of a good thing? If God of War: Ascension is anything to go by, the answer is a resounding…….maybe (brave journalism, no). On a base level, this is yet another extremely well made slice of action adventure videogaming. It's...

God of War: Ascension


Kratos is back to cleave his way through this prequel to God of War. Join us as we dissect the bodies and see if it's up to snuff.

Ascension is a worthy blood-soaked ride and addition to the franchise. If you're a fan of the series you'll find a lot to get your blood pumping here. If not, you should still find an entertaining and fun action game.

God of War: Ascension


I should say at the outset that I'm a huge fan of the God of War series, and in many ways, the difficulties with reviewing God of War: Ascension as a fan of the series are the same faced by the game itself: it's hard to avoid comparisons to previous...

God of War: Ascension PS3 Review


Prequels can have the advantage of adding texture to the back story of a character or world, which makes events in earlier games all the more meaningful. The God of War anti hero Kratos, however, has already featured in five games; two of which were...

The spectacle, the scale, brutal combat and clever puzzles are all comfortably God of War for better or for worse, and providing you’re new to the series or you’ve not yet grown tired of it, God of War: Ascension is a strong entry. However, an overhaul...
