God of War: Chains of Olympus Review

 

The PSP exclusive entry in the God of War series. Was the hype for this justified?

Replay value in Chains continues in Part II's excellence. There is a new game plus feature that enables you to use all your weapons from the beginning, great for variety. You also have unlockable costumes that in addition to being amusing give you...

Moral Warnings: Blood and gore is a big part of combat (blood sprays and enemies lose limbs); brutal violence (includes graphic executions); Mythology elements presented in the game (Hades, gods and goddesses, etc.); magic is used to some extent;...

Outstanding music and visuals; engaging combat; upgradeable weapon options; unlockables for further play-through

Short, only taking about 7 hours to complete; enemies repeat a lot; some control issues; story wasn't satisfying

God of War: Chains of Olympus Review

 

Every one's favorite vengeful Spartan is back. This time Kratos makes his Sony PlayStation Portable debut in God of War: Chains of Olympus. Being on a smaller screen hasn't affected ...

Despite a few complaints, in the end, this is a God of War game. Sure, it might be too short, but it’s still fun and violent as ever. Plus, there’s always the bonus game involving two nary a cloth wearing females, ready to assist and provide you with...

It's a well known historical fact, (i.e one you get off the telly and internet) that nobody actually did anything in Ancient Greece other than drink lots of wine and kill people. It's also widely known that they had proper Gods in those days, who...

God of War: Chains of Olympus

 

When I heard the God of War franchise was moving from PS2 to the PSP for the Chains of Olympus chapter, I was skeptical at first. Sure, the PSP needs a solid action-adventure title as much as any other platform, but one of the main appeals of God of...

Absolutely stunning graphics for the PSP ; Original storyline, not a port ; Engaging battles and all the M-rated action GoW is famous for

Game can be completed in under 10 hours easily, first time through ; Load times ... the burden of all PSP titles

In the end, GoW:COO delivers the goods with surprising effectiveness on the PSP. With some of the best graphics available on any game currently released for the platform, as well as just under 10 hours of playing time, God of War: Chains of Olympus is...

God of War: Chains of Olympus - PSP review at Thunderbolt Games

 

God of War on PSP is an interesting pairing, yet one which can't help but feel a little conflicting. The franchise is best known for its epic boss battles, mythical stories, and colossal settings, so when it was announced that a new God of War game...

God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP)

 

Despite that Chains of Olympus is not God of War III, it still remains an entertaining, if short, entry into Sony's vaunted franchise.

Amazing audio and visual fidelity; incredibly entertaining fighting system

Far too short; not enough puzzle solving; more linear than previous games in the series

Greek Mythology Cliffnotes--Now with 200% More Boobs

Although I've got to say: 00.19 seems a bit boob-obsessed..

God of War: Chains of Olympus

 

Kratos is back in handheld form on Sony's own PSP. The game has been developed by Read At Dawn, who also made the handheld version of Daxter. There was a demo of the game released beforehand, allowing fans to get their hands on some hack/slash action...

Great controls

Of course, you won’t only be using the Blades of Chaos; along Kratos’s quest he will pick up magical abilities and another weapon. The first magical ability picked up is the Efreet and at first it isn't all that impressive, causing just area damage...
