Summary: It's God of War. If you don't know this franchise yet, this game would be an acceptable introduction to it, but true God of War experiences are the gargantuan scenes best seen on big tv screens. Uh!
This is the game that showed what the PSP was truly made of

Summary: The Good: Everything from previous GoW games is intact, the best handheld production values ever seen ever, great replay value, awesome new story and content The Bad: You'll beat it in about 5 hours, still only adds things and doesn't evolve the franchise, not enough challenging puzzles I was really exciting about CoO from day one and I haven't been let down.
Summary: I got a psp for my birthday a while back and along with I decided to pick up God of War chains of olympus. Well, my first thoughts when playing the game were damn, this is pretty hard. I first played GOW on my friends ps2. So thats why I got it. It took a while to get used to the controls. After that the whole game was really easy, even on God mode (the hardest mode). Basically all you do is run around and jump while pressing a series of buttons.
Summary: I like the God of War series. I really do. It's fun playing as an angry gray greek killing and dismembering any and all who stand in my way. Bedding at least two beauties near the beginning of each adventure with rythm game precision. Smiting some god of something or other by the end of the game. Battling bosses ten times my size and winning, while looking totally awesome.
Summary: I have never played any game in the God of War series before Chains of Olympus and let me tell you, I am hooked! Before I get to how great this game is I will briefly state its one flaw. As many other reviewers have stated, the game is far too short. I beat the game in under 3 days probably in about 8 hours of game play. The reason this is a flaw is because the game is so good that you don't want to ever stop playing!! The controls are responsive and easy to understand.
Summary: There are a lot of boring, ugly looking PSP games but this is one of the few games that are worth buying. Very good graphics and awesome gameplay, being able to get upgrades and unlock different characters when you beat the game are a must for video games. The game is fun and is sort of like a movie, you go threw certain stages and then a little clip starts playing.
Summary: This game was quite the adventure. I enjoyed slashing through enemies as Kratos the Ghost of Sparta. Once played through the entire game, however; it lacks replay value. That is the only thing tainting this from being a five star rated game. If there was more content aside from the main quests, this game would be sure to please time and time again. However you may find some of the unlockable mini games to be interesting; but it's sure to leave you wanting more.
