Excerpt: Without question, the two God of War games released on PSP are among the very best titles ever to appear on the handheld. That’s not just according to us, either; God of War: Chains of Olympus still stands as the highest-rated PSP game of all time on Metacritic , and while Ghost of Sparta was almost...
Pros: Already-great games play even better on PS3, Ghost of Sparta looks amazing, Plenty of relatively easy Trophies
Cons: Video cutscenes still look low-res, So do the textures in Chains of Olympus, Switching games means quitting to XMB
Excerpt: As one of video gaming’s icons, Kratos has established the God of War series as one of the best franchises around. Now you can officially experience all of Kratos’ adventures on your PS3, as Sony has issued this special God of War: Origins Collection.

God of War Collection 2 (God of War Origins Collection)
1 October 2011
Excerpt: Following the success of The God of War Collection 1 which remastered the first two games of this popular series in high definition for the PlayStation 3, Sony have done the same for both Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta, two God of War games exclusively for the PSP.
Conclusion: All in all, God of War: Origins Collection is a truly awesome collection. The two PSP games were already excellent in their own right, but with all the improvements that have been made, they have earned the right to reside next to their console counterparts.
Excerpt: There’s been a total of five God of War games now, spread across the PS2, PSP and the PS3. Bluepoint Games brought the first two PS2 games to the PS3, updating the visuals into HD and doing a real grand job.
Conclusion: The move over to the PS3 also gave these two titles something they were missing on the PSP and that are the right analog stick for dodging and the L2 and R2 buttons for magic and special abilities. Epic and grandiose are two words that can be used to describe the God of War franchise.
