Must Have For Any GOW Fan

Chains Of Olympus - This was an ok game. The story was boring and not epic. The gameplay is like the other GOW games and i had a blast playing it. The graphics are ok in the remake. I think they are slight worse the GOW1 remake. When the game zooms in on kratos. You can see the pixels and jaggies. The biggest con about this game is that it short. I finished it in like 4-5 hours. After you finish the game. There is challenge modes that you can try to complete and unlock trophies.

Ghost Of Sparta- This game was amazing. This is a must-play for any GOW fan. The story is basically the teaser ending of GOW2. Kratos goes out to find his brother. This is an epic adventure with epic boss battles. The graphics in this game looks amazing. It on par with the GOW2 remake. After you finish the game. There a arena mode where you slay a bunch of enemies until you die and challenge of the gods.

Bonus- When you enter the game into your PS3. If you go to the video section. There is a video called "Game directors live". All of the game directors of the GOW games basically sit down and talk about GOW. This is an must watch if you're a god of war fan.

Overall this game is a blast. If you're a GOW fan and don't own the psp games. Buy it to complete your collection.

If you have the games on the psp. If you want to re-buy the game for hd graphics, smooth 60fps and trophies. Then do it. If those aren't a selling point for you. Then don't buy it.

Having played Chains of Olympus & Ghost of Sparta on PSP and enjoyed both, I was excited to see this on PS3. The HD enhancement cleans up the graphics from the small screen, nicely done. Chains is a shorter game, but has some impressive scenes & battles in it that are good enough for at least one replay after beating the game. Ghost is longer and considerably more epic. The plot in this one is also a lot deeper than Chains. Both are good for God of War fans or someone just looking for legit action gaming.

Awesome but Short

Both games are awesome. Pros: great epic boss fights, great graphics for a psp game, responsive controls, good puzzles, new weapons like the spear. Cons: game in incredible short...part 1 took 3 hours and part 2 took 5 hours to beat. Not enough variety in weapons. In fact, you only get two weapons in each game plus a few spells, that's it. Overall, it worth renting, but spending 40 bucks is a bit too much.
