Gameplay

As with all God of War games, Ghost of Sparta is a single player action-adventure game played from the third-person perspective that blends addictive hack and slash and puzzle play gameplay mechanics. Playing as the iconic, rage-driven Spartan warrior, Kratos, players face level after level of challenges illustrating the Ghost of Sparta's (Kratos') rise from uber warrior laboring in the service of the gods, to a god himself, following the defeat of Aries in the first game in the series. In the process, the game reveals secrets of Kratos' past only hinted at in previous games in the series. Gameplay, especially during boss battles and puzzle play events, utilizes the familiar God of War style on-screen button prompts to secure victory and advancement, with successful battles and puzzle challenges framed by stunning in-game cutscenes. The game features a more diverse cast of enemies, as well as bigger, badder bosses to tackle. In addition, along with Kratos' signature chain blade weaponry, Ghost of Sparta also features the ability for Kratos to utilize new weapons. These include: a spear and shield combo, which opens up the ability to combine new offensive and defensive tactics; and the Eye of Atlantis, a electrically charged handheld weapon that allows Kratos to shock enemies from afar and from different positions.

Key Game Features

  • New Combat and Weapon System - Enhanced melee combat features more in your face action with 'Combat Rush,' which enables Kratos to pummel enemies to the ground as well as throw them, an augmented death system featuring unique weapon and magic specific deaths, as well as a larger variety of combination, finishing and air-to-air combat moves. Players will also have new weapons to wield such as the Spear and Shield with its fully fleshed out combat tree along with new magical powers for more lethal attacks.
  • Bigger Bosses, More Enemies - Ghost of Sparta boasts bigger and more diverse gameplay than Chains of Olympus. This results in exponentially larger bosses, double the enemies on-screen with more diverse behaviors, and new navigation types all of which add to a more engaging and immersive gameplay experience.
  • Stunning Visuals - Engine enhancements provide stunning graphics and dramatic camera angles that are coupled with weather effects, depth of field, and higher quality environments to offer visuals that have never been seen before on the PSP system.
  • Epic Story - Keeping true to the God of War franchise, Ghost of Sparta provides compelling new adventure for Kratos, one that will go deeper into his past that ever before and answer long-awaited questions about the Spartan warrior.
  • Puzzle Solving - As players explore the ancient world, prepare to navigate through a labyrinth of challenging puzzles interwoven into the story.

Kratos returns to the PSP once more, bringing the same action the series is known for. The real question is: "is it worth playing?"

-------STORY-------

Ghost Of Sparta takes place between the events of God Of War and God Of War 2. Beginning with Kratos lounging on his throne, bearing the perpetual frown the character is known for. Plagued by new visions of a dying woman, Kratos sets out to Atlantis to stop it from coming true - why he wants to do this, isn't really made clear. It's only later revealed this is Kratos's mother he saw in his vision, and from there he sets out on a quest to find his brother, Deimos, and free him from the clutches of Thanatos, The God Of Death.

-------GRAPHICS & AUDIO-------

Ghost of Sparta is possibly the best looking game on the PSP. Featuring massive backdrops with clouds; rain, fires, blizzards, the game really pushes the PSP to it's limits and manages to be playable. Kratos gets blood spilled on him much like in God Of War III, lending detail to the rich world the game is taking place in, and while I found that Kratos's trek through the world didn't make much sense (the locales he visits don't seem like they'd be separated by a simple mountain), each of the environments was jaw-dropping gorgeous on the PSP: something that surprised me, being used to ugly games or games that make no attempt to take advantage of the handhelds power. It was even more surprising that the game managed to deliver visuals that would put most PS2 games to shame and still deliver stable frame rates.

As for audio, it's very God Of War. Full orchestral accompaniment. Unfortunately, they recycled music from previous games and use them for...well, basic combat.
