All told, the God of War Collection provides just about everything that an action gamer could hope for, from thrilling boss fights to an epic storyline that sweeps through Greek mythology. On the boss fight note, neither game features too many of 'em, but the first game's initial battle versus the Hydra ranks with the best throw-downs in gaming's long history. Playing through that opening sequence once again brought back memories of how exciting it was to engage the three-headed beast for the first time. Few games manage to make such a lasting first impression. Even if all you do is pick up this collection to play that opening sequence, it'll have been well worth it.
