Re-released in 2011 to the PS3 as part of the God of War Origins Collection along with God of War Ghost of Sparta. See more »


The very first God of War game established that killing a God is a very difficult process if you are a mortal. Kratos had to spend an entire game searching out something just to become strong enough to even have a chance at killing Ares. However, in this game, which takes place before the events of the first one, Kratos is able to kill Persephone without much fanfare without having to seek out some special power to do it.

God of psp!
18 June 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The GOW series is one of my favorite once of all time, I love the main character Kratos, I love Greek mythology and I love fighting games that features blood, big-ass set pieces and epic music. GOW 1-3 had all that and lots of it. Santa Monica has always been able to push the boundaries of what the ps2 and ps3 are capable of, the graphic and so on, things that should not be able to be on a small system like the psp. So when I finally sat down with my GOW Chains of Olympus it was with fear in my chest. That it wouldn't give me the same kind of bloody, awesome adventure as the previous games. But as I started playing that fear flew away.

GOW CoO is an awesome psp game, it looks and feels just like the GOW on the ps2 system, which shouldn't be possible. The gods and Titans are in it. The controls are greatly ported, the pacing is top notch. The story is good. The only sad thing is the absence of epic boss battles, just one to be exact. And as I and all GOW fans out there know, big ass boss battles is a big part of the GOW experience. But it's still good, good game that is a must if you're a GOW or a fan of great fighting/ adventure games for that matter. The only game on the psp that surpasses Chains of Olympus is Ghost of Sparta, the GOW game that was released later on the psp. But you should still play both games and begin with CoO.

Thank you everybody and good night!
