Before He Was a God, He Was a Man

Vengeance is born in the fires of betrayal in this prequel to the best-selling God of War franchise. Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and child, his hands stained with their blood - tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken...

Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins, and the clarity to avenge his family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best GoW, but Certainly Worth Playing March 15, 2013
Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was very excited once I saw not only a new God of War game, but a collector's edition as well. Before I get to the game itself, I'll discuss the items in the collector's edition. For only $20 extra, you're getting the season pass for all future God of War: Ascension DLC which alone pays for the extra $20. You also get the game's soundtrack, a PS3 dynamic theme, and first access to The Last of Us demo released in May. The statue of Kratos is what catches the attention of many. While it is cool, it's not the best. Multiple reviewers have complained about it being cheap. To that, I say, what did you really expect? Seriously, you're paying $20 more for a ton of DLC and you're expecting a perfectly crafted statue? Get real. The base is extremely cheap feeling, but the statue of Kratos himself is fine. The arms do come unattached, but I had no problem putting them on Kratos. Overall, the statue is fine for the price you pay and looks good on the shelf surrounded by other statues from collector editions.

If you're a gamer who really loves a good story, God of War: Ascension will not deliver. The story feels very weak and bland. The gameplay is a whole different story though. This is the best looking and best playing God of War game. The graphics and the settings are absolutely beautiful and the combat system is truly one of the best I have used in a game. The Blades of Chaos is the main weapon you use, as in previous God of War games, and can be upgraded throughout the game. The combat is fun and the special abilities you obtain while playing are easy to use. One minor complaint about the visuals though is there are points in the game where you'll be in combat and the camera will pan out really far away from the combat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review of the collector's edition bonus features March 18, 2013
Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What you will get in this collector's edition:

1. The game disc.
2. A steelbook case, which contains the game disc and two promotional codes: one for the bonus digital content of God of War: Ascension and the other is the character dlc for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
3. A Kratos statue.

The steelbook case has a smooth and shiny cover and two character artworks inside the case.
The statue is cheap. A top quality statue will cost much much more. Considering you pay 20 more dollars on this collector's edition for the statue and many other features, the quality of it is totally acceptable. It takes a little bit of effort to assemble the statue since the design of the base is pretty bad. The statue holds well and the arms won't come loose. It doesn't have a bad smell. If you place it on your shelf and look at it from a distance I would say it is a pretty decent piece.
But if you have a very high demand of the statue and expect it to be great, you shouldn't get this collector's edition.

What the digital content includes:

1. Online pass activation code
Which enables you to play online.
2. Official game soundtrack
A total of 27 tracks, 128MB. And you don't have to launch the game to enjoy the music since it will be downloaded on your PS3 system and you can copy the file to your PC.
3. 48 hours MP XP booster
Boosts your multiplayer experience points at a faster rate than normal for 48 hours.
4. PS3 dynamic theme
A dynamic theme for your PS3, featuring 7 original artworks of God of War: Ascension.
5. PSN avatar pack
A total of 5 avatars included: Perseus, Orion, Achilles, Odysseus and Kratos.
6. Pass for future DLC releases
Allows you to download future DLC for free.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new tale for Kratos... March 12, 2013
Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been nearly 3 years since we saw the conclusion of Kratos's quest for revenge in GoW 3; and now we have the opportunity to see the very beginning of it.

In this game we discover how Kratos attempts to break the oath with Ares and why by doing so he is imprisoned and tortured by the Furies, we also see the face of a more thoughtful and sometimes sorrowful Kratos as well, but rest assured the moments when you see this "father and husband tortured side" is well told, so you don't have to worry about having to deal with a heavily depressed Kratos during the game, as a matter of fact, the violent and gruesome executions of enemies is as good as any GoW game; just wait until you finish your first Juggernaut fight ;)

Many core mechanics remain unchanged, of course we continue using the chaos blades, we collect magic and items and we upgrade these with red orbs; however, there are some variants now, example of this, once you get a magical power, you need to upgrade it to be able to use its corresponding rage attack and to be able to actually use your magic... So, what do you get in the meantime? Chaos Blades elementally charged!

You collect magic from Ares (fire), Poseidon (ice), Zeus (lighting) and Hades (souls) and by using attacks like the Plume of Prometheus but you will see this elemental charge in action! But for more practical uses for this new feature, once the new Rage Gauge is filled (by attacking continuously and avoid being hit) the elemental attack becomes stronger making a good crowd control especially for tight rooms another characteristic of the elemental blades is that by slaying enemies with certain power will give either: gold, red, green or blue orbs, so plan carefully to use this in your advantage.
