The God of War Saga Now for the PS3
The God of War series, made up of God of War and God of War II, featuring the brutal yet tortured anti-hero Kratos, engrossing storylines based in Greek mythology, over-the-top addictive action and puzzle-solving gameplay and simple controls is often referred to as one of the best, and/or most popular single player action games series ever made for PlayStation 2. The truth in this can be seen in the fact that in an era dominated by more advanced game consoles, fans of the franchise who have held on to their PS2's still revisit these two games from time to time, while gamers who missed their initial releases are tempted to give them a try, even though they have moved on to a PS3. Regardless which side of this you find yourself on the God of War Collection holds something for you. Released in advance of the highly anticipated God of War III, the first game in the series developed for the PS3 platform and rumored to also be the last overall, this collection allows players to properly prepare themselves for the final chapter in the adventures of Kratos, entirely through their PS3.

The Games

God of War
Unleash the power of the gods and embark on a merciless quest as Kratos, an ex-Spartan warrior driven to destroy Ares, the God of War. Armed with the lethal double chainblades known as the Blades of Chaos, Kratos must carve through mythology’s darkest creatures — including Medusa, Cyclops, the Hydra and more, while solving intricate puzzles in breathtaking environments. Driven by pure revenge, nothing can stop Kratos from achieving absolution. Over time, Kratos becomes the most vicious warrior in Ancient Greece and bathed in blood to a point where he can't bare it anymore and sets out on a journey to kill Ares. However, the only way to destroy Ares is to find Pandora's Box, which is located in a temple that's perched upon a hill and guarded by traps, puzzles, enemies, etc. The story is told as a flashback of three weeks prior to where the opening movie cutscene starts and then sets the stage for the game.

God of War II
God of War saw Kratos, a mortal warrior, set upon an epic quest to dethrone a god. But his journey did not end there. In God of War II, Kratos, the once mortal warrior turned ruthless god, sits atop his throne on Olympus, and is a threat far worse than his predecessor Ares had ever been, striking down anyone who crosses his path, or the path of his beloved Sparta. Filled with power and rage, the "Ghost of Sparta" sets out to alter that which no mortal or god has ever changed — his fate. Facing mythical characters, all bent on preventing him from reaching his goal, Kratos' journey brings him to the very edge of the Earth. But this is Kratos, and his defiance is filled with such arrogance and contempt that all of the ancient world still trembles at his name: Kratos, The God of War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best PS2 Game Ever Comes to the PS3 November 18, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I converted from XBox to Playstation a few years back, God of War was one of the first games I bought that was exclusive to the PS2. I've always loved Greek mythology, so I suppose that may be part of the reason why I quickly fell in love with the tragic story of Kratos. After finishing GoW1, I eagerly awaited the release of God of War 2. It was truly amazing that the PS2 was capable of producing such beautiful graphics. The story was even better than the original, and it left me hanging for part three in this wonderful franchise.

I've been patiently waiting for God of War 3 to hit the shelves, so I was quite surprised when I found out that the original two titles in the series were being remastered in high-definition for play on the PS3. I got my copy home, opened it, and loaded it onto my PS3. I'll just tell you right now that ALL of the content from the first two games is on one Blu-ray disc, including all of the extra features from disc 2 of GoW2.

So, is this worth an upgrade????? The answer is a resounding YES!!!! If you are a fan of the series, then you owe it to yourself to get this title and enjoy all of the improvements that have been made to both games. First of all, they have both had an overhaul in the graphics department. While GoW1 still doesn't quite measure up to the latest PS3 graphics standards, it is a big improvement over the old PS2 version. The game now fills the screen on a widescreen TV, and there is a noticable difference in the details of the graphics. The sound has also been improved and adds to the overall enjoyment of playing back through one of the greatest games ever created. You will also notice that the rumble feature is present, and there is quite a nice trophy collection for each game. Some of the trophies are quite funny.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I loved the God of War series and have always thought that the franchise is a major staple in the history of gaming and may single handily define Sony and their consoles. The fairly new anti-hero has established himself as a greatly unique character in the video game world. With his painfully deep back-story, to his constant deception by the gods of Olympus, Kratos is a character that fans can truly appreciate. Within the few years Kratos has existed, he has truly become something remarkable. From the PS2 to the PSP, Kratos has always been one of the most interesting lead characters in a game franchise. However, several years into the PS3 life cycle, Kratos has been absent from the new hardware. Sony has revitalized God of War with this collection so that even those who have purchased newer, non-backwards compatible PlayStation 3 hardware may be able to revisit the games that helped set a new standard for action games.

God of War Collection is just that, a collection of the first two games in the trilogy. The two games tell the story of Kratos' initial deception at the hands of the gods, all the way to his epic confrontation with Zeus himself. The disc features all of the original content from the first two games, but all stored conveniently on one disc. Running in native 720p, as compared to upscaling to 720p via backward compatible units playing the PS2 versions, the games run much smoother than their last generation counterparts. With great anti-aliasing being utilized, the game looks like a new game all on its own. It's almost impossible to think that these were once PS2 games. The one thing that Sony did overlook when producing this game was enhancing the cut-scenes of the game that utilize the in-game engine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow; now I want even more! March 3, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Because I never had a PS2 I never had the opportunity to play the God of War series. Everyone I spoke to said they were some of the best games, they have ever played, but because I never really wanted a PS2, God of War I and II were two games I figured I would never be able to play. Even after purchasing a PS3 I still was unable to play these games because the new PS3 systems do not have backwards compatibility. Luckily these two games were re-mastered and re-released for the PS3 so I finally had the opportunity to play these games. Long story short, I realized that the raving stories about the God of War series were correct.

God of War I looks really good considering it's a fairly old game. The developers did a very good job in remastering it and this is very apparent when you view the cut screens (which were NOT re-mastered). Though not true surround sound like other PS3 games like MW2 or Drakes Fortune the sound is still pretty good.

Game play wise Kratos' movements are very fluid, and its not hard at all to pick up the game and start playing without having to learn complicated moves. Even though this game is basically a hack and slash, it's a step or two above a pure button masher. While you can kill some enemies by just mashing buttons, other enemies require a little more thought in how you fight and defend against them. For example, the minotaurs will always give you health if you kill them a certain way, but if you just mash button to beat them, you will probably wont get health and in certain parts of the game, this health is crucial to your survival. Other enemies require you to press the right button at the right time in order to finish them off. Miss a button or take too long and you have to start the sequence all over again.
