God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

Your second dose of God killing on the PSP doesn't disappoint. Kratos is back, and he's angrier than ever. Let's add to the mix that his brother Deimos is actually...

Smooth game play ; Fantastic visuals ; Epic set pieces ; Great music and voice acting

Little on the short side ; Just too easy on normal ; Minor camera issues ; Needs a second analog stick

Kratos is back, and he’s angrier than ever. Let’s add to the mix that his brother Deimos is actually alive and the Gods have been lying to him this entire time. Now, Kratos will travel to the city of Atlantis(before it sunk into the ocean) to reunite...

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

Two years ago, Chains of Olympus crashed down on the PSP and raised the bar for what could be done on the hardware. It delivered the full God of War experience, but with some sacrifices made to the epic scale. Still, it was a remarkably accurate...

God of War: Ghost of Sparta takes the PSP's previous high-mark and raises it. This delivers all of the thrills that console owners have gotten used to, without the sacrifices that were initially made in Chains of Olympus. Long-time series vets should...

Where does a series go after it has reached a conclusion? Do you accept that the story is done, complete, finito? Or do you go the way of Alien and produce sequel after sequel, drawing out the story's original concept thinner and thinner? Eventually...

How does Sony manage to do it all the time? No, allow me to rephrase that. How does this franchise always manage to do it? How does it manage to not change its formula, but always win us over? God of War: Ghost of Sparta plays not much differently than...

All in all, God of War: Ghost of Sparta is the PSP game you should have no reservations about. It's a well deserved $40 purchase that'll stay in your collection of portable titles for a long time. It's the ultimate example of the full console...

God of War: Ghost of Sparta (PSP) Review

 

God of War: Ghost of Sparta has arrived for the PSP! But does it live up to the rest of the franchise? 411's John De Large checks in with his full review!

God of War: Ghost of Sparta offers players everything good about God of War and brings it to the PSP. It outdoes itself in the graphics department and puts tons of enjoyable violence into the players hands.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta is Another Terrifically Tragic Tale of Awesomeness

 

Awesomeness is so a word. For proof, witness everything Kratos has ever done. Or read our review of God of War: Ghost of Sparta.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta fills in another piece of Kratos’ past. With more innovative gameplay mechanics and brand new magic and weapons, it’s entertaining and engaging, especially for fans of the franchise. The music and voice acting are terrific...

Making Kratos human again

Great visuals, sympathetic story, ties in well with the overall God of War mythos

Controls can be confusing, lots of activity on a tiny screen, shoulder button quick time events are annoying

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

It seems like Kratos just can't catch a break from meddling gods. Released by the same developer that worked on Chains of Olympus, God of War: Ghost of Sparta is positioned after the narrative in the first God of War game on the PS2. After defeating...

God of War: Ghost of Sparta Review

 

Yep, it's God of War!

As God of War as PSP can get; minigames and series' lore strengthen the experience; interpolates various gameplay types very well

Lacks the epic "pow!" of the console versions; some puzzles are a little frustrating

All that said: If you buy one PSP title this year, Ghost of Sparta is a safe bet for the best game you're going to get. It suffers primarily from the inevitable (and perhaps unfair) comparison to its console cousins, but that's really the only place it...

Blood rage born from brotherly love fuels our favorite little Spartan as he hacks, slashes, and QTEs his way through a path of merciless revenge and tasty violence. God of War: Ghost of Sparta is the next chapter in the portable GoW Series, and it...
