IGN - God of War: Origins Collection Review

Greg Miller writes: God of War Origins collects two of the best PSP games and gives them all the PS3 treatment -- HD visuals, 3D options, Trophies and DualShock controls. It also acts as a time lapse experiment for players to get a really good look at how a developer evolves from one game to another. If you haven't played these titles before -- and even if you have -- recommending God of War Origins is easy.

Nice review, but I know a lot of people are going to be upset by the fact that Greg doesn't like Kratos.

Nitrowolf22516d ago

Kind of stupid that a reviewer would review a game that they dislike the character of.

Serjikal_Strike2516d ago (Edited 2516d ago )

yeah its a stupid review

but good score

Fishy Fingers2516d ago

Why would it be any different from someone who loves the character? As long as it doesnt impact his review as a whole, which it does, or he constantly reinforces said stance when it's not relevant, which he doesnt, I dont see why him pointing out a negative feeling towards a single aspect of the game matters.

Reviews are opinions, forums to share your likes/dislikes of the compltete package.

It's a great review overall, quit concentrating on the negative(s).

Yes an no imo, on one hand it shows how good the game is when even though the reviwer doesnt like this game type but can still respect it for what it is and how it overcomes all the previous issues. SHows how good the game actually is.

SilentNegotiator2516d ago

Yeah, he oversimplified Kratos as a character, especially considering that the PSP titles are actually where the good, family-saving side of him shines the brightest. These two games are probably where you feel the most sympathy for the character.

Otherwise, it was an okay review.

But wait....did they update the controls for the dualshock? I'm sure that reviews would complain if they didn't, but I haven't heard any of them say that they HAVE.

It says it's not an average, it's just a final score.

I feel like I should get this for my collection at some point so I'll have the whole franchise playable on PS3 but I kind of already own both of these for PSP, so there's no real rush to get out and buy these for me.

Rynx2516d ago

I'm going to hold out for the final collection, which will have all the games even God of War 3 all on one dual layer Bluray. It's going to happen and I will just sell my God of War 3 and get that instead.
