X-Play Review: God of War: Chains of Olympus

The PSP hasn't yet seen a game with this much polish, this much visual punch, or this much bloody satisfaction. Everything feels meaty, be it the clash of weapon on flesh or the substantial amount of gameplay depth and environmental design. Not only is Chains of Olympus a worthy addition to the God of War franchise, it also stands on its own as a triple-A title in the PSP library.

Pros
• Amazing graphics and musical score
• Gameplay is identical to the console versions
• Just as brutal and bloody as ever
• Interesting environmental variety

Cons
• Sometimes puzzle clues are a bit obtuse
• Game occasionally suffers from screen tearing and framerate drops

Imagine what they'll do with God of War on the PS3.

Agree. I know for a fact what 2009 - 2010 PS3 GOTY game will be. GOW3. Believe.

GOW is a very strong franchise. Every game so far has earned a 5/5 on xplay. I can't wait to see what kratos can do on the playstation 3. I hope they overhaul the animation. Always thought kratos had excellent animation but with the power of ps3 i feel they can push the game so much farther

but this game was made by Ready At Dawn, while the PS2/3 versions will and are made by SCEA: Santa Monica. I have faith in them though. GoW3 will be everything we hope it will be.

PSP GOTY CONFIRMED. I WILL BE PICKING THIS UP. Thanks.

I mean
COME TO MY PSP

EZCheez3344d ago

To pick this one up. The red PSP bundle is on top of my most wanted list, and I am patient so i'll wait to play GOW until it comes out.

Too bad the bundle can't come out the same time as the game.
