Impressed. I am normally a madden, nba live, killzone guy. That's it. But I decided to start branching out last year and along the way (Uncharted 2, Modern Warfare, Bionic Commando) realized I had been missing out. While I am looking forward more to God of War III, I had yet to play any of the collection so I had no expectations. What I found was, I had just finished Darksiders (btw-get it!) and apparently Darksiders had a baby and its name is God of War Collection. Same game. Down to the pounding of treasure chests to obtain, well, treasures. And the massive bosses (not complaining, believe me), and the two attacks, heavy and light, and all the same combos of each. I still highly recommend playing both. They're both tremendously fun games. But I'd space them out, perhaps rent 1, play it, beat it and then try something else before going to GOWC. Both are visually stunning, have a nice flow to them and respond well, the puzzles challenge the mind and change up enough (along with the all the ai, which impressed me) that it kept things feeling fresh. Love the addition of Ruin too. He is your fireladen steed who you can summon to ride when on certain terrain. Enjoy!
After playing the Chains of Chaos on the PSP, I had to start from the beginning with Go of War 1 and 2 once I got my PS3 for Christmas, and I was NOT disappointed! The only thing is, I wish they were a little longer as I beat each game in a day. I am patiently....well impatiently, waiting the release of #3 in the series to see what Gods Kratos spanks on this time! I was interested to see the dawn of a new age with the 3 wise men on the mural in the temple. Great Storyline and I think it would make an excellent CGI movie!
I HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone who has not played it yet.
I'm not a big PS3 player, but I've always wanted to try god of war. From previous PS3 games the graphics in here haven't really changed... but enhanced for the PS3. I'm still on the first one and I really don't like when you have to tap R2 to pry open a door (I don't mind having to do it, the problem is with the R2 button) It isn't like the previous controllers because when you press it, it drops back. But overral graphics are enhanced, Controls are easy, Pretty fun game overall, very addicting. So my overall review is 10/10
