Eurogamer: God of War: Ghost of Sparta Review

Eurogamer: "If a myth grows in the retelling, then small wonder Kratos is Sony's biggest hero today. God of War's muscle-bound fighter has taken on gods and monsters in six outings now and, while the heavenly cast of Olympia in each has rotated, the core message of the series has stood resolute, only amplifying with repetition. These are hack and slash games that prize spectacle over mechanical fussiness, experiences that shroud solid but simple systems in jaw-dropping set-pieces, screen-filling Homeric visions that strike fear in the heart and mind, in much the same way they did for the Grecians three thousand years ago."

7/10. And it is still must buy for GOW fans :)

TheLastGuardian2920d ago (Edited 2920d ago )

7 is still good but this game deserves way more. GOW: Chains of Olympus is the best game on the PSP and this is made by the same developer so of course it's going to be the new best game on the PSP. I can't wait to play it for myself. check out the new trailer

zootang2920d ago

Is there another portable game that competes with this in the graphics and gameplay department?

AtatakaiSamurai2920d ago

Cratos87802920d ago

Eamon2920d ago

I think the reviewer really disliked the game.

So he's probably the wrong reviewer.

deafwing2920d ago

relax dude, "you make it sound like they ate your child" or something ...

everyone is entitled to an opinion, it's your choice to listen, or ignore them all together ... carry on and enjoy the game ... I know I will.

Kingdom Hearts BBS. That game is sick in every way.

Hmm some sites giving this 9's and some sites are giving 7.

Fishy Fingers2920d ago

I know, it's almost as if different people have different opinions.

DeathGazer2920d ago

9.5's everywhere else.

You're so cool and controversial, Eurogamer!

chazjamie2920d ago (Edited 2920d ago )

i dont get it. eurogamer, like edge, have always been critical in the their reviews.


Eamon2920d ago (Edited 2920d ago )

Well Eurogamer has never been as harsh as Edge. They're usually stricter than reviewers like IGN and GS but nicer than Edge.

deafwing2920d ago

do you really think they are being harsh, or perhaps they are just trying their best to swim into the wave of popular culture as ridiculous as that sounds?

despair2920d ago


actually Eurogamer seems to be bipolar, sometimes they are extremely harsh on a game and others they give it ridiculously high scores. Trusting their reviews is random, you don't know if to add 2 points, minus 2 points or take it as it is. And this is from someone who used to trust their reviews quite a bit a while back.

CREESH2920d ago

I enjoyed Castlevainia & Bayonetta much more.

Homicide2920d ago

Don't forget me, but I didn't enjoy CastleVania.
