PS3, $99.95 ★★★★ The God of War games are fa­mous for their win­ning blend of flow­ing, vis­ceral com­bat and epic set pieces. As­cen­sion hits the same notes. A prequel, it sees Kratos tak­ing on the god­desses of Pun­ish­ment, Jus­tice and Tor­ment in his quest for free­dom. Rather than reg­u­larly gain­ing new weapons, his Blades of Chaos are the cen­tral fo­cus and they now ac­quire el­e­men­tal pow­ers. It’s glo­ri­ously good fun and tightly de­signed, if a lit­tle fa­mil­iar. In a first for the se­ries, As­cen­sion al­lows eight play­ers to go toe-to-toe on­line. Out now.
