  • Excerpt: When it was first announced that Sony’s mythological blockbuster God of War series was going […]
  • Pros: + Epic story and sense of scale worthy of the series, + Some of the best graphics on a handheld to date, + Combat is nearly flawless, + Awe inspiring level design
  • Cons: Very short, Not enough "epic" feeling boss fights, Dodging without the right analog takes some getting used to.

God of War: Chains of Olympus Review

PlayStation Universe
7 April 2009
  • Summary: Ready at Dawn did an extraordinary job taking the existing God of War IP and creating a brilliant title on the PSP. In short, God of War: Chains of Olympus is the definition of a AAA game.
  • Pros: Best presentation ever seen on the system, Perfect pacing, Near-flawless transition of gameplay elements from console to handheld
  • Cons: Six to seven hour length on default difficulty setting, Analog nub during quicktime events, No Blades of Chaos swinging sections

God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP) - Review

VGChartz
10 February 2009
  • Excerpt: God of War: Chains of Olympus is one of 2008’s biggest releases. This time around it’s a prequel to the original God of War and is made by Ready at Dawn Studios for the PSP. Kratos had huge success on the PlayStation 2 but the portable god killer just doesn’t cut the mustard (no pun intended).

  • Excerpt: It’s a well known historical fact, (i.e one you get off the telly and internet) that nobody actually did anything in Ancient Greece other than drink lots of wine and kill people. It’s also widely known that they had proper Gods in those days, who didn’t balk at the idea of throwing a lightning bolt at your face and then eating your family. Such is the dreamy past that the God of War games take place within.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Few PSP games match the visual prowess of God of War: Chains of Olympus . In some respects, the PSP's entry into the series looks better than the console version. Levels are kept small, but still feel like they are part of something much bigger. While the feeling doesn't carry through as well in Chains of Olympus as it does in past games, it still works incredibly well.

  • Excerpt: The PSP has been getting quite a lot of love lately. With Sony and numerous developers focused on the PS3, and even the aging PS2, it seemed like PSP owners were getting the short end of the stick in terms of titles. I know that my own PSP was collecting the proverbial dust for sometime. Lately though more and more major titles have been released, or are in the works, for the Sony's little wonder machine.

  • Excerpt: I'm not sure how it happened, but my PSP has been getting more use than ever recently. After literally months of being a professional dust magnet and many internal conversa-tions in which I (barely) talked myself out of selling the handheld, the PSP has, seem-ingly out of nowhere, become my most played system, portable or otherwise.

11 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Ever since the PSP burst into stores we've been waiting for true console-like gaming experiences to arrive. Sure, we've had a few classic games on the PSP, but only now, in the shape of God of War: Chains of Olympus, do we have a game that turns Sony's handheld into a portable PS2. Chains of Olympus is not only a stunning entry in the God of War series but the most impressive PSP game released to date - if you've been sitting on the fence over buying a PSP, now's the...
