I've played every game in this series, from God of War 1 - 3, including the previous port to the PSP (Chains of Olympus).
This is the worst game of the series, but obviously, it's pretty high company it's trying to keep with.
The graphics are amazing. The music and gameplay are quite good. The story is sweetly revealing to a fan of the series.
The real problem with this game is how short the story mode is, and how much it feels like playing God of War 1 on a much smaller screen.
Maybe it was just how familiar I am with this series, but on my first playthrough it only took me 5 hours. I loved the levels in Sparta, but there was nothing unique or interesting about the rest of them. There was a long stretch of the game where the color scheme was drab and boring. At one point I was missing playing in Hades, normal my least favorite levels in these games, because at least in Hades there's a little color. The long levels in white-covered Snowy Mountains and gray/black Dark Caves got a little tiring.
But I'm nitpicking. This is a great game, one of the best on the platform. If you have a PSP, you owe it to yourself to play this game. It's really that simple.
