Rented this game for PS3, it was like I was playing my PS1. Terrible graphics compared to GOW 1, 2, 3. Think the makers could have increased graphics level at least. I lost interest in it almost instantly.
I'm pretty disappointed with the "HD" upgrade or there lack of. I bought this think it was going to be remastered in a sense. I suggest playing on original counsel, or come in with low expectations. I'm familiar with the GOD series therefore, I came into this game with the minder set of 3D capability and up to graphics.
Over all the game play was just as fun as the original titles. PRO you get to play on the big screen and PS3.
Cons 3D content was very disappointing.
"Origins" collects the two PSP titles of the franchise, "Chains of Olympus" and "Ghost of Sparta", gives them the HD makeover and puts them on one disc to play on your TV screen. Sadly, there's nothing very impressive here to make these really more than a rental. Both titles have the stellar voice acting that has been a mainstay of the series, and that's really the best thing to be said. Graphics look worse on CoO than GoS, but they're not bad, just not up to series standards. Gameplay is pretty much standard GoW fare, with the standard Kratos weaponry which can be upgraded, as always, through the collection of red orbs. Controls haven't changed from the numbered games, and they come with both the good and the bad from the numbered titles of the series. CoO has the weaker of the two stories, with GoS being a bit stronger and more compelling due to its more personal nature. Neither game is very long- about 5 hours each should get you through if you so desire to finish. You can't switch between games without fully quitting though, so keep that in mind if you wish to jump between titles. Though GoS is the better of the two, poor save point placement and some cheap deaths can lead to more frustration than fun. Which is a shame. Unless you're a die-hard God of War fan, you can pass on purchasing this. A rental should be fine to satisfy your curiosity.
