Pros Pushes the PSP with great sound and video and excellent gameplay
Cons Like most God of War titles - it is quick to beat and lacks replay
Recommended it? Yes

I've been on a bloody good tear with video games of late, but perhaps none of them are bloodier than the exploits of Kratos in the God of War series. There's currently 2 PSP games in the series out there, and this is the earlier of the two, Chains of Olympus.

Overall this game is really good. HAs graphics equal to or better than the ps2 versions of god of war. The game is really great with a whole new storyline to the psp system. The only draw back that i had found was that the game was a little bit too short. Other than that, the game was perfect. Read full review »

I've been a life long gamer who started out back in the 1990's with PC games, and have now, obviously, moved on into some console game play thanks to my wonderful wife who gave me a PSP for my birthday.

Before God of War: Chains of Olympus, I had already worked my way through the first GoW game. This was one of my first games for PsP and was highly enjoyable to me.  The gameplay has four main aspects: fighting, boss fighting, puzzle, and minigames. These four things together all make GoW: C of O... Read full review »

This is listed on many sites as being the top game for the Sony PSP! Granted, the game has beautiful graphics that shine in very well done movie-like scenes. The mythological setting is also stunningly portrayed. That's it.

The actual game play is ridiculous! Your character runs around in... Read full review »

God of War: Chains of Olympus has done the same thing that the SOCOM and the GTA series have done by releasing a new console-styled game designed for the PSP.   However unlike those games, God of War works perfectly on the PSP control scheme. There are no akward moments like there are when playing... Read full review »

When I heard that God of War was coming to the PSP, I knew that I had to get my hands on a copy. Problem was, at the time, it wasn't out for another eight months. Needless to say it was well worth that wait.

Store Note: Buy it new & now! with eBay Buyer Protection

Tormented Spartan warrior Kratos journeys to the underworld to battle mythological creatures in Chains of Olympus, the anticipated debut of Sony's blockbuster action series on PSP. The storyline in this original title precedes the events chronicled in 2005's God of War. As penance for past transgressions, the son of Zeus agrees to become an indentured servant to the Greek gods for ten years. When the world suddenly plunges into darkness and renders their powers useless, the gods beseech Kratos to return Olympus to its former glory. Kratos will journey to the Gates of Hades and beyond to fulfill his solemn obligation.With a look and feel designed to replicate the same fast-action mechanics from the first two God of War titles on PlayStation 2, Chains of Olympus offers a few subtle changes to combat. Once again Kratos wields the Blades of Chaos, twin swords chained around his wrists, with each swing punctuated with light trails to enhance the theatrics of the combo-heavy fighting system.
