A Solid Action-Fighting Experience, Little Longevity: B-/C+

  • Summary: This is an area- or level-based action game, with heavy emphasis on the experience of combating powerful, fantastic enemies as a super-advanced mythic-style warrior, who gains the use of magic spells and magic items to aid in the fights. Your character's primary attacks use short, curved swords which have the ability to extend (on chains) to great lengths as the wielder swings them in wide arcs, with the ability to catch numerous enemies with each swing at a variety of...

  • Summary: I got this game yesterday, and i am disappointed but yet im not. It sticks true to the GoW we all know and love, awsome battles, beautiful cinematics and mindnumbing violence that would make a spartan proud. But..the thing im really saddend by is the short gameplay time. 4 1/2 hours total and the game was over.. if it was cheaper id be overall happy with everything.

very impressive for a PSP game

  • Summary: If you're a fan of the other GOW games then this is very much more of the same. However, whoever said that more of a good thing is bad? This is a standard GOW hack and slash affair, there won't be any major surprises in terms of gameplay. The surprise for me however was that a GOW game translated so well to PSP! I thought that the lack of power and also the lack of a second stick would result in a poor imitation of the great PS games.

Not 'awesome' at all!

  • Summary: At the time of writing Chains of Olympus is the highest ranking PSP title on metacritic (the review comparison site) and is being named as 'game of the year' by all of the major PSP media outles. Despite having never played either of the God of War PS2 games I came to this with high expectations. And, how can I put this delicately? THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES!

Gameplay greatly satisfying but game is way too short

  • Summary: Fans of Kratos will not be disappointed, since look and feel are exactly the same on PS2 and PSP. Scenery, artwork and music are beautiful, diversity of quests and moves are good. My only and great comment is on the length of the game: in normal modus I finished the game in under 5 hours. So maybe for experienced God of War players the game is nog challenging enough. For newbies: buy this game, and you will be overwhelmed!

Not as good as it has been hyped up to be

Mr. A. D. Jackson, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I bought this game on the day of it's release expecting to be totally wowed. I'd read all the reviews in the mags "The most important game to be released on the psp" one said! Granted the story is good. There were wry and witty moments (the two lesbian prisoners were very humourously done). Then all of a sudden the game was over. What had I missed? had I gone past several levels somehow? I played it again just to see. No! That was it! Over in a jiffy.

Awesome,but........

  • Summary: .....way too short. The game plays like a dream and looks amazing - however it only took me (an unexperienced PSP player) around 1 day to complete it which was a great dissapointment; I certainly had expected more.
