New God of War: Ascension trailer is all about Ares

I am an absolute God of War Fanboy.... yet, I just can't seem to get excited by GOW:Ascension :( Here's hoping I'll be pleasantly surprised by it come March 2013.

Agree with the above, fan but not really excited about this one

I think, despite its graphical prowess & scale, at its core, the game mechanics of GOW are beginning to feel a little bit behind the times

Games like Ninja Gaiden, Demon Souls & looking like the new DMC game, have moved the hack and slash genre onto a level where there is a more interesting skill curves & combat dynamics.

GOW 3 had combos etc but, a times it felt like you we're button bashing despite not really wanting to but it was more effective than a lot of the combos

Ill definitely be picking this up but the two posters above are bang on. GoW could really do with a more effective counter and parry system now and a more intricate combo system.

I'm excited and unexcited, it's basically a rehash of gow 3, with better more colourful graphics, but all new feature extreamly redundant.

it's either Santa Monica need to hire a new marketing team or the game is well quite meh

Multiprat gameplay killed this for me.
If people are talking behind your back it's only because they cant talk to your face. PS3, Xbox360 Elite and Wii Owner so the lame ass "Fanboy" BS wont work on me. Do not bother!
