God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

Gods. Awe. Mighty

Granted, the things that vex each of us are relatively different. While I battle a seemingly unrelenting tide of unrealistic deadlines, the God of War has a more serious bone to pick with the Olympian deities. I haven't been tricked into massacring my...

Games review - God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta is still angry

 

Gaming's surliest anti-hero returns for his second outing this year, in what is the most graphically advanced PSP game ever made.

The most technically advanced PSP game ever made, with stunning graphics and minimal load times. Some great set pieces and boss encounters

God Of War's formula is becoming more stretched with every sequel, especially as the last one was barely more than six months ago

It's a technical tour de force for the PSP, but also one sequel to many for a series that is in dire need of a reboot - or perhaps simply a rest.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

Bruce Banner (aka The Incredible Hulk) is famously quoted as saying ‘Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry'. God of War's furious lead, Kratos, would never say this, mainly because he really couldn't get any angrier – the man is a...

It is telling that the game’s lack of originality is the biggest criticism we can levy against Ghost of Sparta. The simple fact is this is yet another high quality addition to a series that has rarely, if ever, disappointed, and is a rare example of a...

Ghost of Sparta offers stunning environments and brutal combat, but a few issues get in Kratos' way.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

There's so much potential unexplored here, and occasional glimmers of ingenuity in Ready at Dawn's efforts show a developer that should be able to do better.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

Ghost of Sparta offers stunning environments and brutal combat, but a few issues get in Kratos' way.

Incredible visuals, both technically and artistically ; Violent combat with responsive controls ; Puzzles are a great change of pace ; Thoughtful story with a couple of touching moments

Does little to differentiate itself from other God of War games ; Design issues affect both the visuals and combat

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

With all the talk of Sony's newest handheld system heading market ward, Cormac takes the to have a look at one of the PSP's bigger little titles from last year. Is it one to be carved in stone for the ages? Well no, but it's still good clean fun. If...

Very much everything you could want from a God of War title, appropriated for a handheld. Save points are frequent enough that you'll never miss your bus for the sake of getting over the next hurdle. Voice acting is solid

Apart from a few new tools in your skirt, not much has changed. Which is only just a con. A flying/falling sequence may have been a bit beyond the PSP's capabilities

What I love about this series is that it cares about character and fun, without regard for realism or accuracy. This remains intact for Ghost of Sparta. Well worth your money if you already have a PSP, a good starting point if you don't and a must have...

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

Your second dose of God killing on the PSP doesn't disappoint. Kratos is back, and he's angrier than ever. Let's add to the mix that his brother Deimos is actually...

Smooth game play ; Fantastic visuals ; Epic set pieces ; Great music and voice acting

Little on the short side ; Just too easy on normal ; Minor camera issues ; Needs a second analog stick

Kratos is back, and he’s angrier than ever. Let’s add to the mix that his brother Deimos is actually alive and the Gods have been lying to him this entire time. Now, Kratos will travel to the city of Atlantis(before it sunk into the ocean) to reunite...

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

When Chains of Olympus - the first God of War game on PlayStation Portable - was released in 2007, it was viewed as one of the best PSP games ever made. It successfully translated the action of the then PS2 series into the palms of your hands. Shortly...

Fantastic environments ; Combat is true to the source ; Great controls ; Interesting story ; Tons of additional content

Extremely linear ; Very few epic-style boss battles or challenging puzzles ; Doesn't innovate over the last PSP game ; Minor loading screen and transition issues

While Ghost of Sparta doesn't do anything revolutionary or really tweak the series, it still serves as an excellent action-adventure title that fans of the series will fully enjoy. If this is the last time we see Kratos on the PSP, thankfully, he ends...

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

 

Where does a series go after it has reached a conclusion? Do you accept that the story is done, complete, finito? Or do you go the way of Alien and produce sequel after sequel, drawing out the story's original concept thinner and thinner? Eventually...
