God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP)

 

Although it feels a bit like God of War: Lite, Chains of Olympus delivers a great, combat-heavy adventure with excellent production values.

God of War: Chains of Olympus

 

When it comes to Sony's first party titles, it doesn't get much better than the God of War franchise. The action opus hit the PlayStation 2 like a lightning bolt straight from Zeus' fingertips and it was an instant success. Though the title didn't...

Chains of Olympus is a game of mythical proportions. The God of War franchise is rock solid to begin with but considering how well Ready at Dawn brought it to the PSP, I must admit that I'm stunned. Everything from the graphics and sound to the...

Get a Little Gore from Your PSP with God of War: Chains of Olympus

 

Everyone's favorite bloodthirsty Spartan is back, and, as usual, he's pissed. In this prequel to the other two God of War titles, you'll help Kratos save the planet from eternal darkness. God of War: Chains of Olympus delivers the same insane action...

Great action, nice controls, quick load times

Pretty short, little replay value, not much story

The PSP has suffered too many bad games and not nearly enough attention. God of War: Chains of Olympus proves that the system is plenty capable of delivering home console-quality entertainment for grown up players. This is the kind of game we need to...

Before Kratos took on the gods, he served them as a pawn hoping to be rid of his nightmares caused from his past deeds. When the god Helios is taken from the sky and the world is plunged in to night, the gods implore Kratos to track down his captor...

As it looks ever more probable that God of War III will fall into a 2009 release window, Chains of Olympus is here to warm the PSP's cockles during the interim...

Faithful translation of the PS2 series on PSP ; Some of the best graphics on Sony's handheld ; Epic gameplay shows size isn't everything

Short lifespan for a God of War game ; Kratos talks too much, losing his mystery ; Not particularly original

To date, everything about the God of War saga has been epic. The combat, puzzles, and cinematic feel of the games have fittingly met the grand scale of a Greek tragedy. Ready at Dawn has translated this epic feel of the series seamlessly onto Sony's...

A godlike tour-de-force triumph,

The best and bloodiest reason to own a PSP to date.

Sometimes, the simplest description of something is also the most apt. God of War: Chains of Olympus is God of War on a handheld. Every amazing combo, bloody finishing move, larger than life boss battle and sweeping environment is present here, just...

Of Sony's growing stable of first-party franchises, there is none currently bigger than God of War. Kratos took the PlayStation 2 by storm with his 2005 debut and then continued his Godly ascension last year in the sequel, God of War 2. Now the Ghost...

If you asked me a week ago what the best game available for the PSP was, I wouldn't have been able to give you a definitive answer. I probably would have named two or three excellent titles. Ask me that same question today and the answer is simple,...

God of War: Chains of Olympus review for the PSP

 

Do not mess with a pocket-sized Kratos.

Smooth, full-speed action; Sharp graphics and sounds; Careful level design; Leaner and meaner than the console version

Needs better blocking and dodging; Overall intensity not spread evenly

Ready at Dawn has brought this titan down to UMD-size and triumphed. Chains of Olympus is as faithful a version and as clean an action game as you might want on the PSP. The structure is there, the polish is there, and the simple pleasure of slinging...

Sony and Kratos tag-team for an Olympian-sized PSP triumph.

Product Specifications

Fiber Channel-based networking storage technology has revitalized server and storage environments. In addition to improving reliability and performance, Fiber Channel provides the capability to distribute server and storage connections over distances up to 10 km and beyond - enabling SAN deployment in campus environments. Faced with today's rapidly changing and ever-increasing business requirements, many enterprise environments now require SAN deployment over even greater distances to support distributed facilities and address business continuance requirements. A key factor in the progression of extended distance SANs has been the rapid deployment and accessibility of "dark" fiber as well as the deployment of Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) equipment in major metropolitan areas. This technology provides a strong foundation for Brocade Extended Fabrics.
