It was nice they remastered the games trying to touch them up in spots however you could tell it was of lower quality (graphically) then the other PS3 games. It was about the same as the first God of War game maybe but maybe slightly worse (graphically again).
The stories were interesting ones that seemed to just add to the God Of War saga without having to mess with anything in the storyline of the other games. The one game helped bridge the gap to something you find in one of the other games related to the god Hades.
The gameplay mechanics were pretty much the same as previous games without being as difficult as say the third God of War. And the boss fights weren't to difficult. There were times here and there where trying to jump onto something else could require 3-4 or more tries because the game for some reason didn't think you made it or something. Which were the only the real downsides to it.
Overall if you have played the god of war games and haven't checked out these, this would be a good chance to while they are still low in price. You basically get 2 games for the price of one and they are better then the PSP versions.
Lets look at Chains of Olympus (CoO) first as it is definitely the weaker of the 2 entries. The story line here is the usual God of War tale of revenge and redemption, though it purports to be an origin story it is unsuccessful in further developing the character of Kratos and fails to add anything of real value or interest to the God of War Lore. There are some technical problems too, the fixed camera here is too tight- making the game feel claustrophobic and combat can become problematic- I must have died on a dozen occasions when an unseen enemy came charging in from somewhere off stage. When the camera does zoom out, usually for dramatic effect, it achieves little but to highlight the games shortcomings- the flat textures and plain graphics make this the least attractive god of war game I have played.
The God of War games are formulaic at the best of times but CoO is linear to a fault, as you progress through a level you would be magically sealed in an area and released only when the requisite amount of opponents had been dispatched- nothing new as far as God of War goes but here it is not buffeted by the awesome set pieces, light problem solving and epic visual effects common to the series. For everything it does wrong, it does other things very well- the gameplay is addictive and the combat is surprisingly nuanced- on some occasions it takes some strategy to dispatch even the lowliest of minions. CoO gets a 3/5
On to Ghost of Sparta (GoS) firstly it looks much, much better- the character models, environments and visual effects are excellent and maybe it is just because I was coming of the lowly CoO but I would hazard to suggest these are the second strongest visuals in the series (only superseded by the amazing God of War 3). The storyline is the usual failed attempt to right the wrongs of the past, honestly I've played and completed 5 God Of War games in 2 years and can barely keep the stories straight in my memory they are just all so similar and have become this congealed mass of homogenous memory. As for the gameplay- there is much better variety, they have tightened up the controls and camera is far better. There are some amazing set pieces and the story is stronger (even though it opens on the tired cliché of a dream/vision). The larger enemies are more formidable and will require extra effort to vanquish, while the boss battles are fun. There is a little bit of problem solving and the game has a much more epic feeling than CoO, it feels like the God of War you play and love on your console. There are some minor nitpicky problems, like the inescapable and unskippable cutscenes (most annoying when they precede a tough section and you die and have to rewatch half a minute of nonsense before you can kick some ass) Other than that it is probably one of the strongest titles in the series 5/5.
I've bought this collection a long time ago, but I tried (and got) both Platinum trophies first, before making a review of the games
That said, let's start with the key points for this collection:
*The games definitely won't last long (they're PSP games, so don't expect them to last as much as GOW III, please)
*To get the platinum (any of the 2 available) you might need to clear the game at least twice
*It is remastered in HD, but I've played in a 480i SD screen, no big deal at all.
So, let's go through the games.
*God of War: Chains of Olympus.
In terms of story line, it happens BEFORE GOW I, so if you want to play like it's meant to be played, keep that in mind.
Also, as in ALL and EVERY GOW game, you'll be Athena's puppet AND you'll visit the tartarus (Kratos has some issues with Hades and death, you know.)
In the beginning of the game, as in every GOW, you'll learn about the controls, which, of course are slightly different then the original PS2/3 GOW games due to the lack of some buttons in the PSP layout (no big deal too), then you'll go through the levels, collect boxes for souls, health/magic upgrades... You may not take more than 6 hours to clear the game if you're hardcore in the 1st playthrough (from the 2nd playthrough on, you'll be able to use some perks, such as special skins that grant you abilities, that is, if you play in the same difficulty setting or a lower one that you've cleared the game (e.g. if you clear it in Normal mode, then you can play Normal and Easy like a god, but if you go for Hard, gotta start from scratch again)
As for the trophies, well, since it's a remaster, they couldn't get creative enough to make the trophy set more challenging so there aren't any painful trophy to get, really. As for the story of the game, well, Helios was kidnapped and the sun wouldn't come up, and Morpheus was taking everything into his domains (everybody was sleeping and the usual horde of enemies was taking place), in the end, Kratos must face a tough choice: Stay with the ones he most loved and f* the world, or, leave them behind, get real mad for what he was forced to do and save the world while taking a bath of blood, like always, while slicing the wife of a god and a titan.
*God of War: Ghost of Sparta.
The game story happens BEFORE GOW II, however, you'll get stripped off all your weapons ("like it never happened before...", if you're familiar with the GOW series...)
but yeah, we can't expect to fight like the God of War, it'd be too easy... From the 2 games, this one is my favorite because we get more things to do, and a bigger game with lots of challenges, and also, we get to visit SPARTA! (and, since it's a default in the GOW series, we get to visit some ladies there too... and when you do that, make sure you "visit" them 3 times and do it RIGHT, before leaving Sparta *hint hint*) Then, straight to the game's story: After you've become (spoiler-free) a... MIGHTY warrior in GOW I, Kratos will hear rumors about his brother, Deimos, then Kratos will, once again, run through Greece (and sink Atlantis and make Poseidon mad in the process, and even go to Thanatos' domains, which even the gods are afraid to cross...) to find out the truth, which will be shocking, revealing and pleasing to find out... Well, to prevent any more spoilers, I'll stop telling the story from here (well, it involves Athena as well, but... when it doesn't? ) and give you the background of the game: Ghost of Sparta was named after Kratos nick name (he was called Ghost of Sparta after what he did to the ones he loved the most, and that's why he's gray-ish). In the game you'll face cool bosses, find nice weapons, and you'll collect relics (YES!, relics!) that will give you powers/perks after you clear the game (after that you'll be able to use skins as well)
AS for the trophies, same as Chains of Olympus... they aren't hard to get as long as you're a good player of GOW...
Bottom line: Both games are real good and fun to play, and if you find this collection for cheap like I did ($20) and if you like God of War, then just buy it for your PS3... I've played both games on the PSP but I wanted even more, so I bought the PS3 edition and I am very happy with it. Like I said, the only downside of this collection is that the games won't last long and you won't have much challenges to get the Platinums
