God of War: Collection
NOT A HUGE GRAPHIC OVERHAUL BUT BOY IS IT GOOD! A MUST BUY FOR ANY FAN. THE TROPHIES ARE ALSO A GREAT ADDITION FOR GAMING INCENTIVES.
I played them on my old PS2 system and I loved them they were lots of fun but i sold it. so having th expiernce on my PS3 system makes me happy. I found lot's of joy playing with my freind's and what not. the priceis fair and the gaming is fun my only problem is I can't go back.
If you didn't play it on ps2 ,your time is now!
I Owned both of them on my old ps2, but it never gets old , i mean this is still amazing. So, that's why i decided to own the collection for my ps3, the graphics do look improved, but what you will be talking about is the gameplay, it isn't repetitive it is fun and absolute carnage. Just imagine how powerful the game was on the ps2, and having both of them on one single disc ?? that's awesome. The best one for me is GOW 2 , it has a more fluid gameplay and a better storyline. I enjoyed it, and yes sure you will.
My Favorite Series
This game has 2 amazing games for a cheap price. The gameplay is fast and awesome. I've never had so much fun tearing through monsters.
Both of these games have great stories and amazing boss battles. I find the 2nd game easier, but it's up to you. The graphics aren't as good as the modern Call of Duty or Uncharted, but they are PS2 games, but the games have been remastered for HD and BluRay. The musical score is absolutely perfect, the grunts of Kratos and the voice-acting was as good as ever. It lasted a very long time for me, as I tried to find all collectibles, beat it on all difficulties, unlock all treasures and costumes. It is worth the money if you like action/adventure games.
If you own a ps3, go out and buy this collection!
I had never played either game back on the PS2 so when I discovered this collection I felt it would be a great way to get into the franchise. All I can say is wow! Santa Monica Studios really knows how to make games: great graphics for PS2-era, exciting, fast-paced gameplay, above average platforming, fantastic boss battles, and challenging, rewarding puzzles make this collection worth every penny. It also helps that Kratos is one of the most iconic video game characters of all time and a testosterone-fueled badass at that. Go out, buy, it and see for yourself--you won't regret it.
Fun warfare, annoying and confusing puzzles
I enjoyed both of these games, II more than I, even though I earned a higher percent of trophies in the first. I'm going to review both games at the same time because there were not any major differences between the two games. The warfare and leveling up system was well developed but thankfully incredibly simple. It's a simple "Hack and Slash" game, you just hit slash at the plethora of bad guys that pop up at you and use the Experience Orbs that you earn to make your arsenal even more powerful. There are lots of bosses to fight, many of which are gods that Kratos, the main character kills in order to avenge his losses. My only complaint with the God of War franchise are the puzzles. I wasn't expecting puzzles, and that may be because of my lack of knowledge on the franchise. I got confused very easily with the puzzles. I spent a lot of time on walkthroughs, and I hate doing that. I enjoy playing the game without outside help. If there were less puzzles or easier puzzles, I would have given the games a higher score. I'm not sure why I preferred II to I but luckily when you buy I, you get II as well. Although the puzzles annoyed me, I'm now a fan of the Playstation exclusive franchise.
TWO EPIC GAMES!!!!
these games i decided to get because i had them on PS2 so i decided wow, i wonder how they have improved? and i bought them i was anxious to rip off the packaging and play it i played for about an hour the first game and an hour the second and boy those games were just epic!!!
this is a great collection of two of the best games ever. the HD graphics are awesome with these games. each of them has a annoying part but the story makes up for that.
Two amazing games for not even the price of one!
If you played GOW in the past on on the ps2 and wondering "should I dish out more cash to get the same games I own already own?" The answer is OH YEAH! This collection is a must own for any GOW lover or anyone who owns a ps3. Remastered in HD and running at 60 FPS whats not to love? Nothing right? Trophies have also been added too so you can keep track of your progression. Like I said before two amazing games for not even the price of one.
Two of the best games i have ever played
Graphics: good...for a ps2 game turned into an ps3 game...
Sound: great music, memorable track....
Gameplay: Its sort of a button-bashy sort of game but that is part of what makes it great...
Lasting Appeal: worth playing twice, the first one is sort of long....
Overall: this game would definitely have reached 10 except for one reason: it has an overuse of immature nudity....
GREAT games though! definitely would recommend playing them,.....but not with a young one in the room,
