Solid single player as expected. Yes, more of the same, but an enjoyable game. Camera issues are justified at times.

Never even redeemed the online pass, so can't comment on the mp side.

Loved it. Best Gow on console... almost as good as Gos, but not up to par. Graphically it's the best looking console game I've ever seen. Fantastic game.

More like an unhype train. It's a God of War game, every bit as impressive as III graphically, and in spectacle. It gets marked down because it's glitchy, and unpolished compared to previous titles (some of which I've experienced myself, like Kratos falling through floors). I also didn't like the whole elemental system.

I'm not a rusher... I don't race thru any game. I died a lot, more so towards the end during the trials before the patch. It took me a little under 12 hours. When I say it's good, it really is a stand out for the series. It got every single thing right and that's hard for a prequel to do.

I was ready to dismiss this series after gow 3... I'm glad I didn't.

The MP portion is quite fun and different as well. There's even some online co-op challenges with Trial of the Gods that are pretty fun, too.

GoW 1 alone is significantly shorter than Ascension.
