Kratos is a big, bad Spartan warrior. He fights bigger, badder monsters and sometimes even clashes with the gods themselves, gigantic beings so very big and so truly bad that the ground shudders under their footsteps.
So could something as small as the PlayStation Portable possibly do justice to the sweaty, bulgy, spine-snappy exploits of a larger-than-life character like Kratos? As it turns out: Hades, yeah!
The first two God of War games were bestsellers on the PlayStation 2, with good reason. They hit a perfect sweet spot between frenzied hack-and-slash action, simple puzzle-solving and Greek Mythology Lite storytelling, with the ever-angry Kratos emerging as one of the coolest video game anti-heroes of the decade.
