Kratos pocket tales hit the big screens

The God of War Collection Origins, A.K.A. Volume 2, includes enhanced versions of the 2 psp God of War games, Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta.

Graphics

Even with the HD update you can see the age in Chains of Olympus. The lack of details may shock at first, but when you get in the heat of the action everything’s fine. This affects only the real gameplay, cutscenes are glorious and pretty as always. I experienced few graphic glitches and quick freezes when travelling past certain areas, but otherwise the game played smooth.

Ghost of Sparta on the other hand looked like a true ps3 game. Details! Explosions! Blood and gore! Shiny stuff! Hallelujah! I had no problems with framerate or whatsoever.

Gameplay

Just like the other games. Beat up demons in variety of places with style. Combat is easy, fun and entertaining. Especially on higher difficulties when you really have to time your blocks, rolls and attacks or your ass is grass rather quickly.
These games differ from their bigger brothers by being more straightforward, which is understandable for former portable games. So don’t expect too many puzzles.
Both games have unlockable challenge rooms to extend the games lifespan a little. Ghost of Sparta also has a Combat Arena . Unlockables include some videos and art aswell.

Sound

One of my favorite things in the God of War series have been the epic orchestrals constantly blasting away in the back and these games don’t disappoint. Voice actors do a great job to tell a story.
In short: clashes, explosions, bone cracks and blood spurts sound great and the atmosphere is always around. I hate this word, but it’s epic, epic, EPIC!

Story

They fill some gaps somewhere between GoW 1 and 2. Both games go a little deeper into Kratos himself and his motives, but mostly revenge. Sweet, sweet revenge. Barely brings meat on bones, but hey it doesn’t matter!

Do you hate tits and violence in video games?  If so, this game is not for you, but if you are a fan of the series or the hack and slash genre, go ahead and buy it. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
