Play Unwired Review: God of War Collection

The God of War Collection is the ideal way for anyone who hasn't previously played the first two games in the saga to get caught up. The bundle features God of War 1 and 2 nearly in their "purest form." In an interview with Sony's John Hight, it's mentioned that the team did not want to make too any changes to the games in fear that it would snowball into far more changes than they could reasonably fit in the time-frame before launch.

"So, we're still kind of evaluating," explains Hight. "but we were prepared to upgrade the textures, at least on Kratos on both games, but honestly it's looking so good that we're thinking, you know what? It's probably better to keep it in its pure form."

As beautiful as the original titles were on PS2, playing them on a PS3 plugged into an HDTV looks absolutely horrendous by today's standards. Nonetheless, they also aren't playable on newer PS3 SKU's at all. Luckily, they are now combined together on one Blu-Ray disk for your convenience.

Since these aren't actually new games, this review will focus on bonus content, trophies, and anything else that differentiates the game on the PS3 from the PS2.

When that is said, it is saying that the games themselves are NOT going to be reviewed since they are not new titles. Only the new features are going to be reviewed. If you read the whole review you will see that the final score is not representative of the games themselves, but ONLY the new content on the GOW Collection. Why should two PS2 titles be re-reviewed after they already have been reviewed thousands of times, years ago?
