first I played through chains and wasn't impressed with much of anything. story is hollow and pointless. Game looks pretty bad in places and doesn't really have much going for it. Then I played through ghost and finally the sense of scale returns with it. The story has more meat and it does a good job of delivering a little bit of epicness that chains was lacking. The 3D isn't too bad and really adds to the games in areas, mostly in ghost. It's worth a rental and can be fun but it's games like this that make me glad I use gamefly.

Both Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta are a big step back from the main series. In comparison, these games are short, simplistic, and the combat is riddled with poor camera views and horrible hitboxes.
If you like the God of War series, these are worth a quick rental, but temper your expectations otherwise you'll be disappointed.
