God of War Chains of Olympus [Sony PSP] For the unknown

From Amazon.ca

Before he waged war on the gods...he was forced to serve them

The third game in the God of War franchise, God of War: Chains of Olympus for PlayStation Portable is a prequel to the first two games in the series published for PlayStation 2, and true the high standards of God of War and God of War II, not only does it equal the efforts of its predecessors, in some ways it may even surpass them.

Kratos? Story
The God of War franchise tells the tragic and violent story of the warrior Kratos and his dealings with the gods. The ancient world would eventually both praise and damn the infamous ?Ghost of Sparta? as the mortal who slayed a god, but long before his battle with Ares, Kratos sought absolution from his past sins by pledging himself as a champion to the gods. These brutal crusades in the name of Olympus became legendary, but would have far-reaching consequences. In Chains of Olympus Kratos is pushed to the edge as he is ordered by the gods to journey to the very depths of the underworld after the world plunges into darkness. There he must face the most feared creatures of Greek mythology and is forced to choose between his own personal redemption and saving the ancient world from certain destruction. It is a choice that will shake the immortals from their perches on Mt. Olympus.

God of War's Epic Gameplay Comes to the PSP
PlayStation Portable has always been head and shoulders above its competitors in the handheld market when it comes to processing power, and in God of War: Chains of Olympus the PSP platform may just have reached its highest level to date. Packed with features like dramatic camera angles, epic set pieces, cinematic cut scenes, stirring audio and seamless fast action gameplay, formerly only available on console platforms Chains of Olympus binds players to the game?s epic adventure, regardless where they are when they join in the action.

Combat Moves, Both Old and New
Nearly as defining as the name of Kratos itself, the trademark sweeping attack moves of the ?Ghost of Sparta? using his weapon of choice the ?Blades of Chaos,? epitomizes all God of War games and Chains of Olympus is no exception.

Although overall the PSP has fewer buttons than the PlayStation 2 controller, developer Ready at Dawn Studios has managed to incorporate nearly all of the attack moves and combination moves from previous games in the series into this new project. This continuity in gameplay not only provides a seamless intro into the game for veteran players, but a gentle learning curve for players new to the series. Add to this new brutal combat moves and an additional upgradable weapon and you have a combat system that will engage players at all levels.

Exploration and Puzzle Solving
From the bright gates of Attica to the darkest dungeons of Tartarus, Kratos? journey and your own will take you through the dark and brutal world of Greek mythology. Here not only will your skill with the Blades of Chaos be tested, but your wits as well.

As you explore the dangers of the ancient world, players must be prepared to use their navigational skills as they press on through labyrinths of challenging puzzles. Some may be simple tests at manipulating the game?s environment to your advantage, while others much more difficult also requiring precision timing of moves, but each will be different and test you in new ways.

An Evolution in Franchise History
More than just a missing piece in the history of the God of War franchise, Chains of Olympus also serves as an evolutionary link between the origins of the God of War franchise and its future. Originally developed for PlayStation 2, the future of the franchise is slated to make its arrival on PlayStation 3 in the form of the highly anticipated God of War III in the not too distant future. Not only is PlayStation Portable designed to work in unison with PlayStation 3 in many ways, but both long-time fans and newcomers to the series who choose to watch and play Chains of Olympus carefully may very well pick up clues as to the direction the franchise will be heading in with God of War III.

Regardless, whether you find yourself playing for the current chapter in Kratos? saga or preparing yourself for the battles to come on the PlayStation 3, God of War: Chains of Olympus is a must have title for any current owner of a PSP or those considering getting in the handheld game with one.

Format: Video Game
God of War: Chains of Olympus takes place before the original God of War game that was released back in 2005 for the PS2. Kratos, the main character, has some of the past revealed to gamers as they learn of the events that happened right up until the first scene in the original game. He must decide to selfishly save himself and what he cares for, or save the entire world and all humanity. Since the story itself is short but interesting, I will not spoil any of it.

The gameplay is just like the other God of War games - action, slashing, with a few puzzles now and then. The puzzles are really easy and shouldn't require much thought. The slashing and brutalizing of the enemies is where the fun's at - pressing certain buttons when commanded and watching the awesome epic gore abound. Enemies from the other God of War games, such as gorgons, are all present here, along with the Blades of Chaos and a new, fantastic weapon called Zeus' Gauntlet and a bunch of magic skills for you to upgrade.

The graphics and music are epic and amazing like the other two games - Chains of Olympus defintely pushes the power of the PSP and is a great game to show off to your friends. You'll scale the walls of the underworld , jump across large chains, smash statues, swim through beautiful waters, and much more. Graphically, it is defintely one of the best games on the PSP and one of the most beautiful handheld titles ever made.

In terms of replayability, there is a nice bunch of things for you to do.

God of War: Chains of Olympus is a prequel to the PS2 series. Although it doesn't take the series beyond what's available in the first two titles, it lives up to the reputation you would expect.

The action in the game is classic God of War. A mostly isometric, top down view of your character, Kratos, as he slices, maims, and dismembers bad guys with his twin Blades of Chaos. These stubby swords can be used as you would wield traditional swords, or Kratos can use the chains which tether them to his forearms to swing the blades in a variety of deadly attacks. There's a generous number of combos available, and you can upgrade them for even more devastating moves.

Along your quest you'll also acquire the Gauntlets of Zeus. An awesome weapon that, due to it's limited range, requires you to get a little more intimate with your foes, however it delivers a powerful punch. Some may be disappointed that this is the only alternate offensive weapon in the game, but at least it is one you'll want to use. On the defense, you will get your hands on the Sun Shield, which can deflect projectile attacks back to where they came from, and offers up some counter-attack moves.

There are three magic attacks also available which provides some form of ranged or area attack. My preference was towards Efreet magic, which summoned a demon-like creature to pound the ground and cause fiery earthquakes. Like your weapons, all magic attacks are upgradeable. Even with the upgrades, I did find the other two magic spells somewhat limited, and it served me just as well to use my regular weapons, except when enemies stayed too far out of reach.

The camera work is as good as any God of War game, which is saying a lot. The controls are also responsive and easy to handle.

amazing graphics and amazing sound clarity. Truly this is a PS2-grade quality title on Sony's smallest platform. Ready at Dawn studios truly showed their marvel with the release of Daxter and GOW: Chains of Olympus just redefined what portables are capable of. Even with the release of Ghost of Sparta this game is a great buy and at $19.99 (at time of review) it is a MUST BUY!
