God of War III is set to launch next week on March 16, an occasion many PS3 owners have eagerly anticipated since the 2006 release of God of War II. It seems that anticipation has had a trickle down effect with God of War Collection.
God of War 2 was released in March 2007.
just about to say 2006??? wrong lol
Makes sense. I've never played GOW1 or GOW2 (I know, I know WTF right?) and as awesome as GOW3 looks, I simply have too many new/newer games on my shelf at the moment and I know it wouldn't get the attention it deserves. That being said, when I'm finally ready to take the plunge into the realm of Kratos, I intend on nabbing the GOW Collection before I pick up GOW3.
If you don't play God of War 1 + 2, make sure you watch the cutscenes on youtube. GOW 1 Story Part 1 - http://www.youtube.com/watc... Its a really interesting story, and I recommend knowing it before you start God of War 3.
Does anybody know if they are going to fix the freezing issue for 60 gb launch ps3s because I have been waiting to play through both games again before buying gow3 and I would rather play the collection than the ps2 games. I hate that I paided $40 for something that doesn't work for me at all at the moment. If you didn't know about this issue one search and you'll find it easily.
cant go wrong with two GREAT GAMES remastered in hd, the same disc....FOR ONLY 30$! only retards would say otherwise.
Just bought the collection a few days ago. Never got to finish the first one but I did with the second one.
playing through the collection will give you a better appreciation for the things they added in GOW3. ,I played the demo before the collection and after going through gow 1, 2 and playing the demo again minor details stand out. The sound design for weapons is better, how the weapons give off light. I think its well worth the price.
I wanna replay them both so I'll get right-back into the story, and pass some time until the 3rd arives.
This is a must-have as far as I'm concerned.
I thought the god of war III would have god of war 1 and 2?!!!! OMFG wait!! everyone has been talking about how they ended the game? and it is so epic.. what if you unlock god of war 1&2!!! hahaha I wish XD that would be sweet :P
It's a great buy, the games look really great in their HD glory and trophies are a great bonus. This collection ROCKS im enjoying it a lot.
makes sense i guess.
This little gem boosted my trophy score quite a bit after finishing both games til completion. I never got a chance to play them on the PS2. Its also the reason that I paid off my $110 Ultimate Edition in full today. Come on Tuesday, I cant wait to open Pandoras Box XD GOW Is EPIC!!!
Hmm, kinda last minute don't you think? I never played GoW and got the Collection last year knowing I could take my time finishing both games.
i recommed any one who has not played GOW 1&2 that wants to buy GOW 3 to purchace the GOW:collection because this series is truly a amazing experience that can't be mised, cant wait to end it with god of war 3, its gonna be "totaly ninja" =D.
THE END BEGINS...
i wish the collection was actually avaliable in nz
I couldn't resist two games for $30. Never played the first two b/c when they released my ps2 had already stopped working b/c of the laser. Had fun playing them so far and both look great with the HD upgrade
not my fault my ps2 died and sony removed backwards compatibility. Im not going to pay 30 bucks just for my game to be rendered at 720p when I can get it rendering at 1080p on my pc.
it's used though, but in great condition, plus I got it for $20 so couldn't resist with all the upgrades made to it even though I have the originals. I still can't believe how good Gow-II looks for a PS-II game.
