Thunderbolt: God of War: Chains of Olympus Review

Thunderbolt writes: "God of War on PSP is an interesting pairing, yet one which can't help but feel a little conflicting. The franchise is best known for its epic boss battles, mythical stories, and colossal settings, so when it was announced that a new God of War game would be coming to Sony's PSP, speculation was running high. It sounds like it shouldn't work, but Ready at Dawn have done a sensational job of bringing the world of God of War alive on PSP. Put simply, God of War: Chains of Olympus is an exceptional game that every PSP owner should experience.

The visuals are what makes the game such a technical achievement, and are easily the best ever for a handheld game. Textures stand out with an impressive sharpness, while the locations are modelled with an extreme sense of care and hard work. The environments are always filled with history and character, and the scenery that accompanies them are just as well designed, with the enormous statues truly a sight to behold. There are many times when the camera will zoom out slowly as Kratos walks down a path, and it is these signature moments that make God of War such a legendary series, it is these moments when the sheer scale of the world Kratos roams is presented, and in such pure beauty."

Pros:
-Truly Epic locations
-Intense combat suits perfectly to the PSP's control layout
-Masterful storytelling
-Majestic orchestral score

Cons:
-Short length, especially for a God of War game
