I will try to be as unbiased as possible here as I am a big fan of the God of War franchise.
God of War Ascension is a prequel to the series and tells the story of how Kratos broke his allegiance to Aries the God of War.
It is much the same as what you would expect from a God of War game. There is nothing broken here and everything is a spectacle, but it does not do anything outstandingly new.
The only new edition that stood out was the multiplayer but unfortunately it was short lived.
It is still a great looking game that is a joy to behold and a good example of what the PS3 was capable of.
