Sadly I wont be able to play this game. 2 months ago I rented the god of war 1 and 2 saga. Loved it went and rented god of war 3. Also loved it. now I got what looks like a brand new copy of ascension. put it in the ps3 and the dashboard background changes to show the go of war artwork. but as soon as I start to play the game I just get a black screen. after about 2-3 minutes IM back to the dashboard.
did some searching, seems a lot of people are having this problem. I have the newer slim ps3 (the assassin creed 3 500 gb version) So the game is unplayable for me and that is why I rate this as a 1.
If you've been itching for another God of War, then this is right up your alley. The story is basically how and why Kratos started to hunt Ares. We do get to see Kratos "spoilers" smile once, but it's still the same Kratos. Now it's all about the Blades of Chaos instead of useless weapons, we get powers for the blades. Still pretty epic, but of course not as epic as God of War 3. I would say it's worth a rental.
