Vengeance is born in the fires of betrayal in this prequel to the best-selling God of War franchise. Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and child, his hands stained with their blood - tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken... Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins, and the clarity to avenge his family.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from same badass, slightly more annoying enemies 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Same old moves???? Don't get me wrong, God of War is a great game.. It's just that it keeps recycling the same old moves from the past God of Wars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Great God of War God of War Ascension is a very good game that I think any gamer should play. Though it is not the best in the saga it is still a phenomenal game and is a must buy if you are a fan of the series. The thing that keeps this game from perfection is the gameplay. The gameplay is still great but it is sub-par compared to the rest of the God of War games. If you pay attention all of the console versions have made some improvements on the gameplay over time. But after the triumph of God of War 3 they had difficulty upping the gameplay. But as i said the game has still very good gameplay. But i think what makes this game is the impressive storytelling. you can't help but be drawn into the story of Kratos being imprisoned for betraying Lord Ares and the Furies punishing him for his actions. You are emotionally tied to Kratos and with every enemy you kill and every boss you vanquish you can't help but feel satisfaction. Up until you finally defeat the final boss you will be hanging onto the edge of your seat. This is for sure a must buy for any gamer and you will enjoy what you get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from too much freezing until this game learns not to not freeze after like every 2 flipping hours it would be a great game but until that is fixed this is where my rating will stand

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Gameplay , Good MP , Bad Storyline Ascension was by far the weakest out of all the God Of War Titles in terms of storyline. It's story made very little sense and was just plain stupid. But despite it's short comings with it's own storyline it has very solid and fun gameplay. The very same solid gameplay you'd come to expect from any god of war game. Ascension is no exception in fact I liked it even more than I liked God Of War III's gameplay. In addition to it's great gameplay it has a very fun and addicting MP mode. This to me make's up for it's horrid storyline as it gives it much more replay value than any other GOW title. This probably could have been the great GOW title ever made if it just had a competent writer for it's storyline but what are ya gonna do. Never the less Ascension is a great game and worth getting if you're a fan of the GOW series. However I really couldn't recommend paying more than $29.99 for this game and even that price is a lill Iffy. Worse comes to worse you can always Red Box this game but then you will miss out on the fun MP mode that make's the game so great. Either this game was and was not a regret buy as I do find myself playing the MP mode quite often. So that being said I say deff get it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For fans of the series. This is a game for GOW fans. It has everything we've come to expect from the series, but little more. Beautiful graphics, brutal combat and stunning environments are all included, however, if you are expecting anything new or groundbreaking, you will be disappointed. While fun, the combat becomes a bit repetitive and the puzzles seem to have been dumbed down from previous entrys. Add in the relatively short single-player campaign, and what you get is a game that isn't going to win over any new fans. Now that isn't to say this is a complete GOW rehash. The addition of environmental weapon powers was a solid inclusion, but does little to make the combat stand out from previous GOW titles. There was also the addition of online multiplayer that, while fun, isn't going to hold your attention for very long. Overall, GOW:A is a solid game and a definite buy for long-time series fans, however the repetitive combat and lackluster multiplayer isn't going to buy over any GOW newbies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Freakin' Prequel GOW has done it yet again...ANOTHER prequel. Honestly i'm extremely tired of the creators doing this XD but to tell you the truth the game is pretty good. Problem is it's really hard. The puzzles are very "puzzling" and the fighting is very hard at times. I'd only recommend playing this if you already loved the series and followed it.
