Very Good

Classic God of War Title

Ascension has a different feel to the combat system compared to the previous titles, so it took a few hours to get a handle on it. You stick with the Blades of Chaos the whole game but can use 4 different elements (loved Hades, hated Ice)

Difficulty-wise, Ascension was more on the easy side up until chapter 25 or so, when battles became hectic. The Trial of Archimedes was especially challenging but hugely rewarding. It took about an hour and half to beat it on Hard.

The story was hard to follow and not very interesting. Didn't really add much to the backstory in my mind.

The graphics were solid especially in the cutscenes. The camera likes to be showboaty at times but it's nice scenery to look at.

The bosses were pretty forgettable. The Furies aren't interesting enough and they were boring to fight.

Overall, it was a fun game with a solid combat system and I especially liked the brutal kill animations of some creatures.

Good game. Story line seems to start becoming obsolete and you just run around killing things. The camera angles and zoomed way out make it really hard to even see where you are during battles and puzzles. I feel like they should have just stopped with the previous game. I like it, it's still fun, worth the rent, but not worth the buy.
