Experience Five Legendary Adventures In Kratos' Quest For Vengeance Against The Gods Who Betrayed Him.
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 lethal double chainblades, 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.
Play as the brutal warrior Kratos Explosive Gameplay Vengeance Against The Gods
Kratos, the once mortal warrior turned ruthless god, sits atop his throne on Olympus as 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. 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.
The God of War III game finds Kratos raining carnage and destruction upon the Gods who have betrayed him and the entire Ancient Greek world. Armed with his deadly double-chained blades, Kratos will take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles on his merciless quest to destroy Olympus and the mighty Zeus himself.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
that said lets get down to it.
ok lets start chronologicly
chains of olympus:
i like this one. its kratos early years of servitude to the gods. set about 5 years before god of war in terms of story
morpheus and persephone are trying to destroy the world and put the gods to sleep.
this was a psp game upscaled for ps3. and it shows. while it is graphicly bad next to the other games it makes up for it with fun.
god of war: this is one of my favorite games of all time. i once owned it on ps2 before it was damaged and needed to be replaced leading to the purchase of this set.
from what i recall of the ps2 version this one looks slightly better it is a quite beautiful game. one thing annoys me for some reason (at least i dont remember it) r1 now has some sort of weird dodge charge thing, as a result the grab button is on r2 (why couldnt it be reversed) the one part with the statue in athens was near impossible just because of the button choice. i dont know if its all ps3 controllers but my r2 is very springy and that makes rapid taps hard as such i couldnt push the statue over with my finger alone i had to flip the controller over backwards and use my left thumb. that small bit aside nd having to get used to l2 to grab things i think gow was as great as i remembered it,
ghost of sparta: this opened with a resounding meh. graphicly its as bad or worse than chains. one problem both games have is kratos looks squished or stretched (i assume its from the psp conversion)and while i didnt care for it at first, the story kept me invested as kratos learned his brother is alive and held captive by thanatos and his daughter erinys. as the game progressed though i enjoyed it more and the ending redeemed the game.and i ended up really liking sparta.
god of war 2: oh this game. here is where ( at least for me you dont have to agree if you like gow2) the story took a nose dive.
so now the gods are unhappy with kratos and zeus takes matters into his own hands leading to lots of horror.
gameplay wise is great. some of the traps are too ludicrously hard (low lands crossing anyone? or phoenix fire statue puzzle and spike room to name other examples) the opening battle against the colossus of rhodes is oft mentioned for good reason. normal difficulty is as hard as the hard modes on most other non gow games. graphicly i will say this is the best gow2 has ever looked it is more beautiful than even gow 1.
and finally gow 3:
this game. oh this game was weird.
picking up right where 2 left off kratos begins his assault on mt olympus and an all out war on the gods.
i died 36 times last i looked and im pretty sure not once in combat. this game has some horrific platform puzzle sections that will kill you plenty even on easy. kratos pretty much becomes an unlikeable murderer. hes always been brutal but in earlier games he was nice to women an children at least. in one part he literally rescues a woman then shoves her into a wheel to jam it to keep the door open ! the poor girl did nothing to him. she wasnt even one of the gods he was hunting just one of poseidan's lovers. anyway brutality aside the game play would go from fun to cheap death traps on a dime drop. all leading to an anti climax after the zeus fight.
that said my favorite fight was against hercules (voice by kevin sorbo :D ) also the violence is much more graphic in gow 3. t he remains of hercs face were quite disturbing to look at.
final verdict this set is worth your money. games are like people they have flaws but that dosent mean you dont want to hang out with them.(usually)
so my rating for each game individually are as follows.
god of war : 5
chains of olympus: 4 and a half
god of war 2 : 4
ghost of sparta: 4
god of war 3 : 4
A couple things to note: The package is misprinted in stating that GOWIII and the two downloads are in stereoscopic 3D, only the downloaded games are in 3D also 2 of the 5 games are as previously stated included as a download voucher so you will need to download them to your console. If you don't have an internet connection this may be a problem for you. I would have liked them to be included on a disk. It would have saved me some bandwidth. Both downloads completed long before I was done playing the first game but I am worried the voucher will expire and I will be unable to download them again in the future should I need to delete them to make space for other stuff or if I have a console or drive failure.
The Remastering is done pretty well. Gameplay looks great in HD and all updated. In the first game you will notice that the game and the cinematics look excellent but the mini cut-scenes (like where it shows a door opening) look ancient and worse than I remember them looking on the PS2 (probably enlarged too much going from SD to 1080p). In GOW II and up this is less noticeable. I would have hoped that some of the more controversially difficult scenes would have been reworked as well but they are still just as difficult as I remember them (like the spike room and the spire etc where an extra 1/2 a second would be amazing). The controls are as they were in the original games. It would have been cool if they had remapped them or had an option for making all the games control the same to make it a little more fun for people planning to play these as a marathon.
These games have an epic feel based on ancient greek mythology and the stories of the Gods of Olympus and the Titans. They only stay true to mythology (if thats a thing) when it doesn't get in the way of the story of Kratos and making the game fun. I would like the game a lot better without all the platforming (jumping from this to that) and puzzles but the story and action are good enough that I suffer through it. To me the platforming and puzzles feel like it drags the game out and they feel out of place. If you are not a fan of platformers I suggest getting a strategy guide or viewing a walkthrough online while playing to make that part go a bit faster. Just keep in mind you don't have to collect every item and visit every orb chest to get a satisfying God of War experience. You can skip more than a few of them.
The games are all 5-Star but the misprint on the package saying GOWIII is in 3D and 2 of the 5 games being downloads prompted me to take away a star for the collection. 5 games with probably 12-15 hours of gameplay each is a good deal though so I can't be too critical.
Update: Some are saying their download codes did not work. Mine did. That is all.

Game arrived today, sealed, only had the discs for 1 - 3, no discs or codes for the other two games.
I want my money back, I would've got this cheaper buying locally.
Most DLC is included for all games except for God of War 3. For that, GOW3 Remastered on PS4 is the way to go.
The voucher for the Origins Collection will work even if it is passed the expiry date. Mine says expiry in 2019 but I redeemed it successfully.
The issue is the country registered on your PS Account. This voucher is for the US Store only.
To get around this, make a new PS Account on your PS3 with a US address.
Redeem the code with this account, then download & install the Origins Collection onto your PS3.
You can then sign back into your regular account and play the games with no issue.
This is the same fix for other PS3 Collections with US vouchers, like the Metal Gear Solid : Legacy Collection.
