"Kratos returns for his second outing on the PSP, and it's even prettier than the first. Add in the great story and consistently solid gameplay and we've got one of the best games on the platform."
it seems like psp has just start getting good games (kingdom hearts peace walker ghost of sparta) i hope the PSP2 wont be out for awhile
Have you just started to be interested in the PSP? Because it has plenty of quality titles.
Vice City Stories Pursuit Force 1 & 2 WipEout Peacewalker Portable Ops Killzone Liberation Logan's Shadow Liberty City Stories
the psp has had a pretty phenomenal year
now can all the story illiterate fools that claim Kratos is a dumb pointless asshole please shut up? he always had a reason for his anger. fine, it wasn't always made as clear as now, but in a way they probably had to make it obviously clear like CSI has to make it obviously clear there's a knife in the body's back by flashing it in your face 1000 times and refering to it 1000 times BECAUSE PEOPLE NEED TO BE FED EVERYTHING. GAH you are why bad movies, scrips and narratives exist!! * shakes fist and ends rant*
Don't forget Valkyria Chronicles II from that list
Tons of good jrpgs actually-FF7 Crisis Core was excellent with one of the most affecting endings I've played in a long while even though we all knew what was happening it was class. But, yeah, loads of great jrpgs on the PSP and the new adaptation of Persona3 is immense for a handheld, imho. GoS will be amazing judging by the reviews and CoO was similarly stratospheric in a series that, spreading three systems is yet to spawn a single game that was less than immaculately conceived. The belief, though, that PSP had no great games was always bogus and even some that didn't get the love at review they should have(for whatever reason) can still be amazing games-GTPSP has seen me log as many hours into it as ANY handheld game has EVER, Arctic Edge was a cool game too. The two pursuit Force games are great, Both SF games, Locoroco1 and 2, Patapon1 and 2 and messing about creating on LBPPSP has been a brilliant distraction for me and the kids on holidays when it got a bit rainy-just a shame they didn't include the same co-op on everyone's levels the PS3 game did-next time eh MM? Anyway, tons and tons of good games(I could go on and on)have been put out on the PSP even WITH the homebrew/piracy issues it had since practically launch. I realise it's the accepted wisdom to say it's a total failure for Sony and that PSP2 is an inevitable failure as well but will Sony see it like that? Sure, DS(in all it's iterations) has been a massive success for Ninty(amazing games and inventive controls supporting them as well as all the casual fluff)and the iPhone(and Touch and iPad) boom seemed to overshadow Sony's portable in sales especially. However, 60million sold is no small change, is it? And when you consider the trouble with piracy and lost dev support that brought with it you start to wonder what could have been and what still could. If the new PSP comes with two analogues, great dev support and a ton of PS2 games downloadable from the PS Store I think they could be back with a bang and if they stay 2D who'#s to say they can't be the cheaper of the two Japanese handhelds this time out? That PS2 library, though, should be key as I'll never catch up[ with the titles I missed on PS2 at home with new PS360 games to get through-but on my travels? Yeah, they might be portable outsiders but I think they have a good foothold and I wouldn't write ~Sony offd in the portablke market just yet even with 3DS looking so good right now-before they both released who was putting their cash on the bulky, ugly DS or the sleek PSP with all it's horsepower?
If you own a PSP you got to have this game. I'm 3 hours in and its great. Very epic continuing boss fight at the beginning. Also the graphics are great. Really, get this game guys.
theres a epic boss fight in the beginning of every GOW game.
Parasite Eve 3, just saying
@gamerzBEreal17 TROLL HARDER
I love the God of War games and this one looks really great. The PSP is such an underrated device.
ign!!!! u just redeemed urself with this review
wow this game is hot the demo really floored me i dont see any reason why the game is not a 10/10. what are the cons?
I need to dust off my PSP for this.
give me some dust, i dont have any
Cant wait to play this on My Big Boss psp.
Wow, even the PSP is kicking the Wiis graphical butt!
360 you are next!
Good review, game looks fantastic. didn't play chains of Olympous, but I assume it wors as well on PSP as it does in home console versions.
Game is pretty cool Im playing it now.
has no games is one of the most ridiculous things to stem from this entire generation, or that the PSP is some kind of failure. over 50 million units sold is NOT a failure by a long shot. considering most competitors to the Nintendo handhelds have barely managed to sell 1 million (the Sega Game Gear is the only handheld to sell over 3 million units; it sold 8 million in it's short life), the PSPs sales are phenomenal. the game library is fantastic as well. those saying the PSP doesn't have any good games have somehow ignored COUNTLESS amazing PSP titles. in my opinion, i think it's the RPG machine of the generation. as an RPG fan, the PSP is just SWIMMING in awesome RPGs. other genres are represented really while with titles like the MGS Big Boss series (that's what i call them), Syphon Filter, and the GTA games. i think the DS and PSP are very complimentary handhelds. they each address what the other is lacking, and have incredibly impressive lineups of games. i think they are a lot more diverse than a lot of the console's libraries, just lacking the HD polish. as for Ghost of Sparta, it's looking awesome, and it's just one more fantastic game to add to the PSP's library. i can't wait to try it out. i'm currently playing Kingdom Hearts and MGS: Peacewalker, and those are fantastic games as well. i'm really impressed with how well Kingdom Hearts controls on the PSP, as the console iterations always had control issues to me.
