GOW: Chains of Olympus gameplay

GOW: Chains of Olympus gameplay

Brutal hero Kratos is back in the palm of your hand with God of War: Chains of Olympus, an exclusive Playstation Portable title. Games as fluid and jaw-dropping as that one, I demand more of them every single day.

Both I'd wager.

I adore GoW, and this was brilliant, it's incredibly smooth as long as it wasn't loading scenery, during action it's amazing. Definite buy for me. I hear the framerate drops aren't in the full game either and so are just in the demo.

Dont listen to the haters. PSP is a great system, these days as a poor university student I live off PSP and PC. Syphon Filter titles were GREAT, MGS PO was the best Metal gear gaming experience, Tekken is awesome, Ace Combat has tons of replay value, Patapon is lovely, etc etc.

This game is gonna rock!! I was blown away by the demo, thought it was better than the GoW PS2 titles. Ready at Dawn is a great developer

Same here. Anyway, does anyone else think this game is more graphically impressive than God of War 1? Cause it looks like it to me.

You are wrong... Anyway, it's not necessary to have tried all the games in the list to prove my point: big names, good games, blind or stupid.

I've played the GoW demo. It was just as awesome as the PS2 version :) Can't wait for full game. GO KRATOS!

As far as great games on PSP (and yes, there are many GREAT psp games), this is probably one of the best. I'm currently playing Patapon. It's so quirky and weird and awesome, like Loco Roco. I love it :)

ps: out of the list of games above, I can say that I've completed (and loved) these: lumines 1+2, burnout legends, daxter, locoroco, tekken, valkyrie profile (awesome port), wipeout pure/pulse, virtua tennis, gitaroo man lives, gurumin (too kiddie), hot shots golf, metal slug, puzzle quest, ratchet ad clank, winning eleven, crush, castlevania, disgaea, final fantasy tactics (another great port)... need I go on?

PSP is slowly becoming one of the best handhelds. I paid $250 for my value pack when it first came out. Totally worth it.
