QJ.Net writes: This is one title you shouldn't miss. It doesn't tread on new ground per se - it is the prequel, after all - but this is a legitimate entry in the series. From the music to the graphics to the combat - down to the quick-time events - God of War: Chains of Olympus certainly doesn't stray away from the successful formula that the first two titles laid down. Maybe it's a bit short, yes, and it's familiar to a fault, but that doesn't mean there isn't an engrossing game perfect for those long bus rides. You won't regret it.
The production levels are obviously off the scale, the action is fluid and visceral to a Devil May Cry level, and the atmosphere is suitably epic, but the fact that the game itself played so naturally and so easily even with the PSP's crippled analog stick control scheme convinced this blogger that God of War: Chains of Olympus is definitely worth gushing on about.
