Chains of Olympus is worth a 6, maybe. Ghost of Sparta, a 9. Since I'm leaving this disc with GoS, the higher score wins out.

For starters, GoS is just an all around fun and entertaining game. The story is easy the get into, and the game play is very even, with difficulty ramping up as you play. Graphics are pretty good, considering this was a handheld game. If I had to pick a negative here, it'd be that the challenges once you've beaten the game are very easy for a GoW game. Beyond that, I can't find anything wrong with the game.

Chains of Olympus is another story. The difficulty seems to fluctuate, that by the end of the game, I felt as if I needed some sort of medicine for all the swings. The story is the only GoW story that I could not get into, since it felt like it was written by a third grader with ADHD.

If you like GoW, there are quite a few extras on this disc, most unlocked within the games themselves. Those are fun, but if you're a die hard fan of Kratos, I'm betting you already own this disc. The games are relatively short: both took my 9.5 hours on hard, but this type of game isn't my normal thing (if you're good at GoW, expect 8 hours for your first playthrough on hard).

If you've never played a GoW game, these aren't the games to start with. The stories being played out rely on basic back story from other games, that are better supplements than complete nourishment.

Even though the games are shorter in length , its ok there ARE 2 . Cool characters etc , the only downer is......... you can definately tell this is PSP "remastered" GOW 3 fans will surely notice the difference there. Other than that isnt too bad , good extension play. again just short .
