Kratos, the god himself, has muscle for brains and kills before he thinks, yet he’s surprisingly fun to play. The game has made its way to three different gaming systems now, and the God of War: Origins Collection brings these two classics to the Playstation 3. If you loved other games in the series, such as the original God of War, or God of War 2, these additional games in the saga will be right up your alley.Of course, it isn’t tossed into Playstation 3 unaltered. High definition graphics and shiny new trophies to earn are all part of the new package. This title is actually two, Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. Chains of Olympus follows Kratos for the ten years he is in service to the gods. The second, Ghost of Sparta, follows him as he visits the lost city of Atlantis.The games don’t have quite the same flash as today’s modern games do, but they are still enjoyable to play. The updated version also fixes an annoying navigation issue in the game, where you have to use the shoulder buttons to roll.

This was unintuitive, and the PS3 version allows you to use the second analog stick. This makes it a lot easier to use, and makes Kratos more functional. The graphics are greatly improved, with just a few areas in Chains of Olympus that they look stiff or odd when played on a giant TV screen. The rest of the time the new flare provided by the updated graphics is impressive to look at.While we won’t go into the details of the story lines itself for both games, if you’re looking for a deep plot or meaning to the game, Kratos Origins doesn’t have plot as its greatest strength. That doesn’t mean there isn’t any, or that the game is bad, but simply the developers strove to make the gameplay itself what keeps you coming back for more.

One tiny flaw with the package is that in order to play the other game in the package, you have to exit all the way out to the XMB to play a new game. It would be a nice touch if switching between games could be as simple as switching from a God of War Menu. This is a small problem with the game, and really one of the only few issues throughout it. For those who loved playing this on the original playstation or other platforms, having these classics brough to PS3 is very exciting.

While these old games may not have quite the flash as some of the newer games out there, bashing heads together as the mighty Kratos is still satisfying. As icing on the cake, these updated games are selling for a modest price, so even if you’re not certain you’ll like them it’s worth adding them to your gaming collection. Two games for the price of one. Enjoyable game play. Trophies to win. Exiting one game for another is a pain. Overall rating: 8. Kirby and the Forgotten Land - The Loop. Do you like this video?

God of War: Origins Collection was also released in North America as a digital download on the PlayStation Store on September 13.[28]

God of War: Origins Collection features native 1080p high-definition video, anti-aliased graphics at 60 frames per second, DualShock 3 rumble features, Trophies,[29] and is the only God of War release to feature Stereoscopic 3D.

Known Issues

God of War: Origins Collection received positive reviews from critics. It received a score of 86.62% based on 41 reviews on GameRankings[32] and 84/100 based on 58 reviews on Metacritic.[33]

IGN stated, "Sony succeeded at making good games better" and that it "acts as a time lapse experiment for players to get a really good look at how a developer evolves from one game to another."[34]GamePro noted the lack of new bonus content, and said, "3D doesn't necessarily radically redefine the experience. It does, however, make things like boss fights and magical effects much more mesmerizing", but added that, "all of the in-game cinematics are not in 3D, which is … unfortunate considering how cutscenes are such an integral part of the storytelling in any God of War game".[35] By June 2012, God of War: Origins Collection had sold 711,737 copies worldwide.[27]

God of War Saga is a collection of five of the God of War games for the PlayStation 3 released as part of Sony's PlayStation Collections line on August 28, 2012, in North America; it was not released elsewhere. The collection includes God of War, God of War II, God of War III, Chains of Olympus, and Ghost of Sparta. It features two Blu-ray Discs—God of War I and II on the first and III on the second—and a voucher to download Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. The games retain the same features as their first PS3 releases. The collection also includes exclusive bonus content and a voucher for a one-month trial of PlayStation Plus. The games, with the exception of God of War III, are also available to download from the PlayStation Store.[36][37] From September 27 until October 5, 2012, to celebrate the release of God of War Saga, PlayStation.Blog ran a weekly countdown of the top five God of War epic moments as voted by the God of WarFacebook community. "The Death of Ares" from the original God of War was voted as the "#1 most epic God of War moment of All Time."[38]

In Latin America, an exclusive version of God of War Saga, titled God of War: Omega Collection, was released in November 2012. The Omega Collection features three Blu-ray discs, as opposed to two, with Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta included on the third disc. It also includes a SteelBook game case with exclusive artwork and a limited edition bronze statue of Kratos, created by an Argentine artist.[39]

Release

Ryan Fleming of Digital Trends wrote that the collection "is perhaps the best value buy for any console available", and that for fans of the series, "this collection is not for you" as all games (with the exception of God of War III) are available for download, and it will "likely be redundant". However, new or inexperienced players should buy it. Fleming added that it was odd that the PSP games were included as downloads, and would like to have seen content migrate over to the PlayStation Vita.[40] Jeffrey L. Wilson of PC Magazine gave the collection a 4 out of 5 and called it "an excellent purchase for anyone looking for cinematic, blood-drenched action—especially newcomers who get five titles for the price of one", but added that long time fans may not find much value in the collection.[41]
