God of War 3 (PS3) by Sony
4.0 out of 5 stars A Slightly Flawed Gem, 13 Jan 2012
I began God of War 3 having recently played through God of War Collections' 1 & 2 in the past month, based on a friend's recommendation (for which you can read my reviews here on Amazon). Aside from the decidedly sub-par Chains of Olympus, God of War 1, God of War 2 and Ghost of Sparta were all excellent games that were just a joy to play.

I must say, in places, the humour was portrayed correctly… Read more

**Warning: this review contains spoilers**

God of War Collection contains the two titles in the series previously released for Sony's home console system, the PS2. Essentially, Sony has re-released both God of War 1 and God of War 2 remastered in HD on one Blu-Ray disc for your entertainment.

I was referred to the series by a friend who had also recently purchased and played the series himself, with his only passing comment that it was really good. Having researched the games prior to playing, I found that God of War 1 (the first game in this collection) was preceded by Chains of Olympus (being the first half of God of War Collection Volume 2). I therefore felt it… Read more
