I linked this before but it is an interesting read. I'm hoping for the next God of War they learn from their mistakes and do the game elements in order instead of creating MP then switching back to SP and vice versa. Focus on one element at a time, then begin the next. I'm hoping the next GoW is amazing.

Yes, this was a very interesting read and it gives me hope for a future GoW. Dont get me wrong I do love Ascension, but there were somethings that made me be disappointed in it. But now that they know how the MP is going to work, they can work more on the SP than the MP or work on them equally.

Agreed. Either equal amount of time or slightly more time on the SP. I have high hopes for the next GoW. Not high expectations because it may not be what I want it to be.

^yeah too many ppl had too high expectations for Ascension, and look at how much ppl hate it lol. Once I heard it was a prequel, I knew it wasnt going to be as great as previous games, soooo it kinda worked out for me lol, even though I was hoping for alittle bit more personal story.

Lol I know right, silly people Smiley Tongue It would've been nice for a more personal story but I guess it didn't work than way. I was disappointed though mainly because it was the first GoW game I ever played (that's sad, I know lol) and it's easily my favourite franchise because it has all of my favourite genres in one. Then when I bought the Saga, I had high expectations because everyone was telling me how amazing it is. I'm up to GoW3 and I see why now.

Amazing read!!!

Thanks a lot!

 

Chapters 4 of this "postmortem" confirmed all my feelings on what went wrong in the production of this game: MP  ruined the SP development.

I agree on chapter 5, but I would add that there weren't so many "epic moments" in the SP, only two or three... so they can do better on this aspect too, if compared to GOW2 and GOW3.

 

But now I have great hopes for GOW4 because it seems that that they learned the lesson.

Come back to your glorious state, Sony Santa Monica! Smiley Wink

Yes, yes. I'm still meaning to get around to reviewing it properly with the mocking of their nonsense and all that jazz.
