Product Description

God of War

Unleash the power of the gods and embark on a merciless quest as Kratos, an ex-Spartan warrior driven to destroy Ares, the God of War. Armed with the lethal double chainblades known as the Blades of Chaos, Kratos must carve through mythologys darkest creatures including Medusa, Cyclops, the Hydra and more, while solving intricate puzzles in breathtaking environments. Driven by pure revenge, nothing can stop Kratos from achieving absolution. Over time, Kratos becomes the most vicious warrior in Ancient Greece and bathed in blood to a point where he can't bare it anymore and sets out on a journey to kill Ares. However, the only way to destroy Ares is to find Pandora's Box, which is located in a temple that's perched upon a hill and guarded by traps, puzzles, enemies, etc. The story is told as a flashback of three weeks prior to where the opening movie cutscene starts and then sets the stage for the game.

God of War II

God of War saw Kratos, a mortal warrior, set upon an epic quest to dethrone a god. But his journey did not end there. In God of War II, Kratos, the once mortal warrior turned ruthless god, sits atop his throne on Olympus, and is a threat far worse than his predecessor Ares had ever been, striking down anyone who crosses his path, or the path of his beloved Sparta. Filled with power and rage, the "Ghost of Sparta" sets out to alter that which no mortal or god has ever changed his fate. Facing mythical characters, all bent on preventing him from reaching his goal, Kratos' journey brings him to the very edge of the Earth. But this is Kratos, and his defiance is filled with such arrogance and contempt that all of the ancient world still trembles at his name: Kratos, The God of War.

* God of War and God of War II on one Blu-ray Disc.

Having recently gotten around to playing God of War 3 I finally realised what I had been missing all these years. I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience playing as Kratos and decided to give the originals a go to see how it all started. I am glad that I did. These games a prime example of how much fun gaming can be. The games come in at about 8 hours each to play through, depending on your skill level. The high def revamp apparently has made these look the best they ever have - I never played the PS2 version so I can't offer a comparison. If you are a fan of hack n slash games and never experienced the God of War games this compilation offers great value for money. Some players may think that they can be a bit repetitive as they are primarily button mashers but I never tired of carving my way through hordes of minotaurs, sirens and soldiers. If you fancy a couple of solid games at a great price, God of War Collection delivers.

God of War Collection

When you first assume control in the game, the first thing you will notice is that both games look great. The graphics still hold up well by today's standards (more so for GoWII) and the frame rate, being run on the much more powerful PS3, is phenomenally smooth. The environment not only looks good but also manages to establish the sense of scale that it is trying to convey: making you feel like you truly are traversing and exploring vast different areas of an even larger world.

God of War I

The plot of the game tells the tale of the pissed-off power-house Spartan Kratos, who is on a journey to stop Ares, the God of War, from destroying Athens. The way the story chooses to tell its tale is interesting and done well: you start the game not knowing much about Kratos but more and more pieces of information on his history are revealed via cutscenes as you progress through the game. The story, original and entertaining from start to finish, is easily the strongest point of the game.

Of course a strong story is not the only good thing in God of War which also boasts a simple, but highly satisfying, combat system and a multitude of clever puzzles. Combat revolves around combining the triangle (heavy attack) and square (fast attack) buttons to form a variety of different combos. As simple as it sounds, the combos themselves are satisfying and does a really good job of making you feel like a badass Spartan. This is true especially in the later parts of the game when you have fully upgraded Kratos' weapons.

God of War has a lot of strong points but it is not without flaws. The game controls well most of the time: movement and combat is fluid, responsive and accurate.

Having skipped the PS2 generation, I missed out on the original GOW series and after reading some excellent reviews on Amazon, I thought the collection was worth a try.

For the uninitiated you play the role of Kratos, the Greek Spartan chosen by the Gods to right some wrongs. You'll find much more information on the story on this very page but in order to keep this review relatively brief, I'll concentrate on my experience of the game.

Having only played PS3 games, I did indeed notice some graphical inferiorities. However, they are smooth, glitch-free and polished enough to be worthy of a PS3 release. Only allow this to put you off if you limit yourself to watching pretty games rather than experiencing a game.

Whilst the hack and slash elements of the game are incredibly satisfying, I was delighted when I found out there were puzzles in the form of Greek mythical (or actual, it's not for me to influence your faith) Gods challenges. To me these are pitched perfectly; any harder and I'd be pulling my hair out in frustration, any easier and I'd be wondering what the point is. The end result of each puzzle is that I am satisfied (and kind of proud of myself!).

To expand on that, Greek mythology also provides a rich, deep and attention-grabbing story line and from that perspective, it's done the developers jobs for them. The Gods you'll encounter (some providing a helping hand, others doing their best to dismember Kratos) are all there from the watery Poseidon to the dark lord himself, Mr "I like a sacrifice" Hades.

That leaves the fantastic, most atmospheric, beautifully mastered soundtrack that accompanies Kratos on his travels. It's also varied, so you'll never get bored and if you appreciate a powerful classical score as I do, then you may just take a moment to smash some defenceless pots and boxes just so you can absorb each perfect moment of this game.

Well hello to all the GoW Gamers,

what do I have to say what isn't already said about that game ?!
Some time ago a friend of mine gave me GoW 3 just to test it after I played Dante's Infernfo and he promised me that it just would be even better than Dante.
Well ... I tried GoW 3 for just 10 minutes and I have been very pleased with it so I had to order the GoW Collection, remastered in HD for my PS3 system.

I began to play and notices at once that you can really see the difference between the first and third chapter of that game, but after a while of playing I got more and more fascinated by the graphics, the gameplay and the possibilities of Kratos.
It was just great.
For the first chapter of God of War I needed - well, I'm not that gaming freak - about 4 weeks that I made it thorugh cause sometimes there are also really difficult things you have to manage like finding any keys ore ways to go on running through it.

Than I came to the God of War 2 and I'm still overwhelmed of the graphics because that got better from the first to the second GoW. And what you also notice is that the creators of the game made the playing more logical what pleases the player really much.

Finally I can say by sure that I'm really glad that I have boughten one of the best games or even collections that is available on the gaming market.
Kratos ist just great and you'll have really fun playling that gome though it's not the newest game on the market.
