God of War Ascension Single Player is Violent, Insightful

If you can believe it, there once was a time before God of War's titular character, Kratos, wasn't such a tough nut to crack. Of course he was still absolutely lethal with his blades and willing to put down any ancient creature or mythical beast if they looked at him the wrong way but before all of the Greek god-slaying and wife-and-child murdering antics (okay, he didn't mean to kill them!), Kratos was understandably a much less vengeful character.
This 'softer' side of Kratos is on show in the upcoming PS3 exclusive, God of War Ascension, set to take players through the adventures that he experienced before the bitterness set in.
It appears that obvious story differences aside, God of War Ascension will equal more of the same in comparison to God of War 3, with combat looking similar. We also see new enemies, the most intriguing of which is the peculiar elephant/giant hybrid that we see providing a bit of a challenge for our favourite angry protagonist.
