    Kratos has all the moves, but he is not classy anymore

    Rated on March 12, 2013 by 2005-MUSA

    I hope every one of you would have noticed the 'Cold hearted' Kratos and a weak plot of the story. This wouldn't have been a problem but because of the original trilogy, the GOW: Acsension becomes sha...

    Stronger in its gameplay when compared to the series, but weaker just about everywhere else

    Rated on March 13, 2013 by lmaocarrots

    God of War Ascension plays brilliantly, adding small improvements to all aspects of its gameplay, but it's lackluster story, lack of "epic moments" and poor pacing leave it in the footsteps of the res...

    I pre-ordered this and it was worth the 60 bucks.

    I pre-ordered this and it was worth the 60 bucks. They made a beautiful multiplayer and an alright single player. The single player gameplay is good but I disliked the idea of having elemental pow...

    The only time I had ever played a God of War game was about two years ago at my buddy's house, on his PS2. The game's dark storyline and gory graphics got my attention immediately, and I remember enjo...

    God of War Ascension is a diffrent game than its classic predecessor, but it delivers!

    Exciting compelling combat, but something is missing... <br />

    Rated on March 16, 2013 by Mr_Person_1

    God of War: Ascension is a unique title. I was under the assumption that this game would start from where he forged his bond with Ares to the mid-game climax of killing your family to an eventual unde...

    Kratos returns to chop some more heads in this exiting new prequel.

    Rated on March 16, 2013 by modnationmaniac

    God of War Ascension is the 7th installment, although, it is a prequel to the original God of War game. Usually prequels don't get much attention. But Santa Monica made a prequel that has my atten...

    I want to feel invincible yet challenged while playing a game. The God of War series always delivers.

    Rated on March 16, 2013 by joelacourt

    I haven't played much of the game yet but I was a little disappointed the game only received an 8.0 on this site. These games are by far my favorite series. They can be seen as button mashers while pl...
