As a complete package, God of War Ascension has its fair shares of excitement and disappointment. 0

There is no doubt that this generation has been lengthy compared to what we have experienced in the past, but as the year moves on towards the release of the PS4 and whatever Microsoft are going to call their next Xbox, we still need games to tide us over until those arrive. This is where exclusives for consoles are coming into play, with Sony showing us that they aren’t afraid to bring us returning franchises and new IPs to close the end of the PS3’s life. Unfortunately, there seems to be an un...

The game is gorgeous to behold, when it’s not freezing, hitching or dropping all sound. Presentation has never been better; shame that it hangs on a weightless story...

God of War: Ascension struggles to find interesting situations for its refined, button-mashing combat 0

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 - and first not on a handheld device - Kratos’ latest violent adventure could be best described as unnecessary without causing too much fuss. With Zeus and his holy pals put on the backburner till later in the timeline, our angry antihero feels less ...

The best GOW game yet!!!! It is SPECTACULAR IN EVERY WAY!!!! 0

This game is everything I have expected for it to be; brutal and spectacular! This is the most refined GOW game yet (YES EVEN BETTER THAN GOW3), with great combat additions, great variety on the scenery, nice puzzles and great pacing making this game an outstanding experience. It may be not as epic as GOW3, but that is because of it being a prequel, so Kratos cant fight a Titan or other things like that, but still it is freaking epic and ultra fun to play due to the whole amazing package the gam...
