Hands on with God of War: Chains of Olympus

 

Sony knows that handhelds aren't just for kids. Mashing on buttons to train little monsters might appeal to a youngster, but for the rest of us a bit of blood 'n' guts wouldn't hurt. Neither would decapitating undead soldiers or ripping the eye out of...

It's easily the most anticipated game for PlayStation Portable this year, so when we were given the opportunity to get our hands on it at Sony Computer Entertainment Gamers' Day in San Diego, we jumped at the chance. Then we sliced its throat open

God of War: Chains of Olympus

 

Arriving on the PlayStation Portable as a standalone prequel to the acclaimed God of War titles already known to PS2 owners, Chains of Olympus sees everyone's favourite embittered Spartan warrior playing the role of vicious lapdog of the Gods some time...

At its core, the God of War series (Chains of Olympus included) is little more than a gore-splashed hack and slash extravaganza. However, unlike genre rivals such as Dynasty Warriors, Heavenly Sword and Devil May Cry, the inescapable pull exuded...

God of War: Chains of Olympus

 

The suspension of disbelief: an acceptance of doors that for some bizarre reason require a button to be depressed at the other end of the courtyard by means of a statue or corpse – for our entertainment. The guys over at Persian Security must be making...

God Of War: Chains Of Olympus (PSP) review

 

A mini adventure for Zeus's handyman...

With only six hours of gameplay, tops, God Of War: Chains Of Olympus is an indulgent purchase. Then again, this is the most thrilling game we’ve played on the PSP, and it only feels like a moderate step down from the PS2 instalments.

God of War: Chains of Olympus Review for PSP

 

God of War: Chains of Olympus for PSP Review - If you've been after a reason to pick up the PSP this is it. It's only March and the handheld game of the year has probably already arrived.

God Of War: Chains Of Olympus

 

Presumably hard at work on Kratos' PS3 debut, God of War creators SCE Studios Santa Monica entrusted the reins of their portable deity to Ready At Dawn; the talented bunch of ex-Naughty Dog and Blizzard developers having proved their worth with...

God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP)

 

A reason to pick up that PSP that you never use.

Now don’t get me wrong this is a really playable game with super high production values both in terms of graphics and sound but the QTE woes and laughable sex scenes drag it just below the level of a must have title for me. If you don’t mind squinting...

God of War: Chains of Olympus

 

Bloodiness is close to godliness

As the tortured Spartan warrior Kratos, the game takes you on a journey to restore the sun god Helios to his rightful place in the sky. Having slain his family in a fit of unbridled rage, Kratos now submits as a servant to the gods of Olympus and is...

God Of War: Chains Of Olympus

 

For all the complaints that have been levelled at Sony in this current generation, we'd be foolish to forget the number of decent new franchises that the PS2 era brought to our attention. One such franchise was God of War, which at heart was little...

Easy controls and game-play ; Decent boss fights ; Some surprisingly funny and smart moments

Slightly repetitive in places ; Quick Time Event finishes can prove anti-climatic

While Chains of Olympus isn't going to win any awards for innovation, it does the job that was intended of it, which is to bring a tried and tested formula to a hand-held audience, so that they can enjoy it on the move. In many instances in the past,...

God of War: Chains of Olympus (SCEA)

 

It retains all of the epic awesomeness of the first two God of War titles. Don't think for a second that just because it's on the PSP, it's any less amazing. The graphics are fantastic. Even though the PSP screen features less real estate, the game...

There isn't a great variety to the enemies. This also means that there aren't as many "fatality" sequences either. Everything feels just a little narrower in scope. While the game is still epic, it isn't as long nor is it as far-reaching as the...

Chains is a worthy addition to the franchise. While we want nothing more than to continue on with Kratos' journey towards the top of Mount Olympus and his final battle with Zeus, we were more than happy to take a short detour along the way and spend...
