I don't see why they keep tacking on information that I don't remember anyone asking for instead of continuing the story after Kratos turns Zeus' head into a pudding. It'd be okay to start out playing this one, kinda like how if you started with Star Wars Episode 1 it wouldn't seem as bad compared to episodes 4-6 since episode 1 is what you got your first impression from. In short, I'm a huge fan of the GoW series but I couldn't bring myself to finish this game.

But thanks to GameFly I got to find that out BEFORE I bought it and had instant buyers remorse.

Glitch Happy

A sometimes fun game, but I think stuck on rehash of the same ol GoW things, nothing felt new. The "parkour" of the game felt useless and sometimes utterly bad, I am not a crazy good at anything gamer, so its a casual mans look at it, but I died from enemies almost never, but died falling cuz I the jump point didn't match the character intuitiveness, or the camera never rotated to allow the vantage point to see what is next at least a billion times. Which leads to me real only fault with the game, glitch after glitch after glitch, and at Chapter 20 a game ender for me couldn't work around with any reboots of any kind, after playing chapter again 4 times and same glitch I gave up. Which is actually pretty sad, seeing as I rented game ages after it came out, where you would think DL patches would have already been issued to address these things.

So a feeling of rehashing the previous ones, bad glitchy cameras, and the back breaker glitch that wouldn't let me advance is why the rating is low. If I was able to finish I'd suffer through the rest and prob give it a point higher.

Plus I feel it has zero replay value, glad I rented it. I'd freak if I bought.

I wish I could have given GOW-Ascention a 7.5 rating because thats where it belongs. I am amazed that people are giving the game such low ratings?? I agree the game was not as good as the others, but it is not worthy of a 2 or 3 rating! Whenever you see these ridiculous ratings, just move on and dont read. These ratings represent someone who should not be taken seriously. Ridiculous really. The good - The graphics, gore, cinematics, and fighting - And the finishing moves are downright brutal (love it). The bad - repetetive at times, sometimes too hard with no chance to change the difficulty settings (I almost gave up on it and cursed out the TV!). Aside from that the game will deliver and you will be happy you did it.

PS AVOID READING (know it all) REVIEWS WITH STUPID RATINGS, like a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Just plain dumb. Rent it and you will have fun with it.
