GOW vol.2 3D!,
This review is from: God of War Collection: Volume 2 (PS3) (Video Game)
Ok i have had all 3 GOW titles on ps3 when they were uber cheap 2 years ago but didn't open them & I'm glad i didn't... the first title chain of olympus is a prequel to GOW 1, this game really gives a nice introduction in the GOW universe, i have so far only played 5 hours on the first title and love it! although i will say that some of the enemies are cheap! like really cheap! not only this but at times the game also then feels too easy...it just never gets the balance of difficulty right, which in turn will require you to build up your strategy again which is very time consuming. I will also say these games do NOT feel like psp titles on the ps3, they look really developed & the graphics will amaze you that this came from a psp in the first place!!!
This is also the first titles in the GOW saga (maybe more to come who knows) that display in 3D!!!! & my god does it look good! I am privileged to have a 3d set (Stereoscopic Active 3D) and i am glad! after not getting much impressive 3D action with titles such as socom, Motorstorm etc since GT5, this game put my 3D worries to rest, it actually makes the depth really really deep when in eerie caves & also some of the boss fights are "head on" which really does the 3D even more justice as it gives the feeling the attacks are coming out of your TV screen! i will say if you have a 3D set or looking to invest soon hold off playing till then! SERIOUSLY
I rate this game 4* for fun due to some of the enemies being cheap as said before but overall from just the 1st title Chains of olympus, this game really deserves to be in your collection! also word of advice i would play COL 1st then 1, 2 then GOS then 3 if you haven't yet tackled the others!
