My interest for this game is pretty limited simply because it's a prequel. Maybe I'll get it someday. It's just that in God of War 3, Kratos was at his peak in power. Once you've seen super Saiyan 3 it's kinda hard going back to just a regular Saiyan, just sayin (lol). Or does it really have as many epic moments? Anyone finished it yet?
@shadow580 It's odd. Playing the first 30 minutes of Ascension, I was like, eh. If you've played the demo, that's the beginning. Pretty epic looking but I was just going through the motions. But something happened about an hour into the game that struck a cord with me and I realized that there's still life in this franchise. The play mechanics are at their best here. The story only serves to move the action and puzzles along. I think the Uncharted series spoiled everyone with it's cohesive story telling with really likable characters.
Bottom line: I thought at first that I wasn't going to like Ascension as much as the others, but it eventually set its hooks in me, and I'm the kind of guy that has a lot of unfinished (and highly rated) games sitting on my shelf. I'm sure that I'll be finishing this great game really soon, possibly playing through it a second time in a few months.
The only drawback of this game is its familiarity. 8.5
