'God of War: Ascension' Brings the Action

The action-packed franchise God of War has kept millions of gamers busy for years. Its seventh installment, Ascension, continues the GOW legacy. In Ascension, gamers explore Kratos's past, which actually makes the game a prequel to the original.

Although game reviewers comment on its disjointed storytelling, most overlook it thanks to the game's fast-paced action. The New York Daily News reviewer raved that the game was so much fun and addicting, he didn't even notice when he was halfway through. You might want to wait for an off-week to play. It will be hard to quit the game, and you might need to get to practice or finish your homework.

In addition to its fast-paced nature, the game showcases a world that is incredibly detailed, making it easy to lose yourself in the stunning graphics and sheer scope. Ascension developer, Sony Studios in San Diego, impressed fans by focusing on all the right things.

Unfortunately for those who were looking forward to a great 3D action game, Sony San Diego announced less than a week before the game's release that they were scrapping that idea, along with any local co-op. If you're looking for a game you can play on the couch with a friend, you will be disappointed.

But God of War: Ascension adds both story and action to the franchise, making it a great way for gamers to relax. Also, there is an online co-op available, in case you want to play with your friends remotely.

(For those who purchase God of War: AscensionThe Last of Us demo will go live May 31.
