Good collection for God of War fans,
This review is from: God of War Origins Collection - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
I don't own a PSP, so this is the first time I've played these 2 games.
I'll keep it short.
Well, it's 2 God of War games in 1 disc, it's fun, and it's in HD. That pretty much sums it up.
The games are kinda short and have little less contents than their 3 bigger brothers, but not by much, so I don't count this as a con. You could finish both games, on Normal difficulty setting, within 10-12 hours. Not too short, in my opinion.
- The puzzles can be unclear and get you stuck at times, so are the things you need to do in some boss fights.
- The worst enemy is the camera. It's not so bad on Normal, but it will get you killed a lot on God Mode, and also be a part that makes you stuck on puzzles.
- Chains of Olympus look just passable. They didn't redo any models or textures. It looks like a Playstation 1.8 game with a better rendering and anti-alias. The shadow casting doesn't look right in places.
Ghost of Sparta, on the other hand, looks quite a lot better.
If you have never played these 2 games before, go for it. These are bite-sized God of War, but it's definitely a mouthful bite.
If you have never played any God of War before, then what have you been waiting for?
*** This doesn't affect the score ***
God Mode in Ghost of Sparta would probably make you want to stab your finger through your ear, and gouge your brain out, Kratos style.
I got stuck in one fight for 4 and a half hours, and I haven't been able to get pass it. Playing God Mode and Challenge Mode in both games could extend the play time up to 20 hours or more. Ghost's God Mode is harder than Normal Mode in Ninja Gaiden Sigma. Chains' God Mode is hard, but not as much.
Anyway, that's up to your skills. So if you're a casual gamer, like me, be warned. The frustration could easily turn a normal guy into The Hulk.
So, if you love to unlock everything, you'll get your money's worth. Though you may need some anger management sessions later.

That's to short for a game that price. I know it's a PSP port if they could of put it in HD should of add some content a game shouldn't be less than 15 hours for they generation they have enough space and hardware for it.
