God of War: Chains of Olympus
Originally released for the PSP, God of War: Chains of Olympus was later remastered for the PS3 as part of the Origins Collection; fans of the original hack-and-slash PS2 game will be happy to know that Kratos has almost all of his original moves and combos, and the game still manages to deliver both epic both battles and fantastic visuals (even with the limited PSP hardware). Despite being a little dated, the game’s overall pace is nice and brisk –allowing players to enjoy the story and continuing mythos without lingering too long in any one particular part.
God of War 3
The third and penultimate installment of God of War was released for the PS3 and is without a doubt, one of the largest and most visually compelling games in the series. This game tells the incredible tale of how Kratos literally tears his way across the entirety of Greek mythology, from the very depths of Underworld to the peak of Olympus –and battles every single god and titan that stands in between. Expect to fight in huge battles (literally), and engage in some of the most exceptionally creative boss fights ever made.
God of War Ghost of Sparta
Fans of Kratos already know what to expect in every God of War game: epic boss battles, unique execution animations, and plenty of blood and gore. After all, when you have a lead character whose trademark weapons are a pair of huge blades with chains, you can expect that every enemy encounter leaves a trail of guts on the floor. This PSP installment takes players on a little side event that occurs in between the events of the first and second PSP games and delves a little into Kratos’ past.
God of War Ascension Review
If you have followed the original God of War trilogy from the Playstation 2 to the Playstation 3 –and probably played the PSP side games as well, then you already have a pretty huge idea how epic a God of War game can truly be. God of War: Ascension is the ultimate prequel episode in the series, dealing directly with how Kratos got started on his crusade for vengeance, and how Ares manipulated it all. Expect to fight your way through even more treacherous maps and hundreds of enemies like only Kratos can.
