Sony has recently (2 days ago) graced us with an HD remake of two PSP only God of War titles, for the PlayStation 3, and if you don’t own a PSP, and are a huge fan of the God of War series, you’ll be psyched to hear that it is available for purchase as a Blu Ray disc, and as Digital download through the PlayStation store, both for only $40!
I purchased the digital version yesterday, if you purchase the Origins Collection, you also get the Game Directors Live videos for free! Since my internet isn’t exactly fast, I finally had Chains Of Olympus downloaded a couple of hours ago, the game is remastered in HD, can be viewed in 3D, and has full trophy support! Booting up the game, I was surprised that the visuals were that nice, for a PSP title, I didn’t expect much, merely PlayStation 1 graphics, but Chains Of Olympus stands on par with both God Of War 1 & 2 graphics wise! Though it wouldn’t hurt if they had updated a bit of the textures, when an arrow is fired at you, you can see how much it’s pixelated, and so far I only encountered one small glitch with Kratos acting as if he’s walking on a beam, while he’s actually walking normally on the ground, other than that, the audio is outstanding, just what you can expect from a God Of War release, and the environment is nicely rendered.
Is it worth the $40? Definitely! If you’re a fan of the series like myself, you’ll have a great time playing the two games!
I’ll leave off with the trailer for the Origins Collection:
