    Two amazing classics in one well-priced and convenient release that I'm happy to recommend to series newcomers and veterans who want to revisit these gems on the go.

    The PS Vita port of these glorious games could have been better, but if you want to play them on the bus...
  3. Solid but also a HD collection that has no remarkable improvements. [June 2014, p83]

    A rough port of a pair of great games that makes them show their age.

    God of War Collection on PS Vita is without any doubt the worst version of the game, due to many technical problems that are really hard do tolerate on this hardware.

    Not an essential buy for Vita owners, but even with a graphic downgrade, both games are still two of the most beautiful pieces of software available on PlayStation.

    This game is a mayor deception. The God of War games were so epic on the PlayStation 2 but look really bad on the PS Vita. Therefore it's a total disaster. Poor Kratos, he deserves better.

    First part of this collection is great action game, but in comparison to second part, it is just a prelude to truly epic masterpiece that God of War II is. Expand

    Great port on vita. The game looks pretty good and plays smoothly for me. I compared it to the ps3 version on remote play and liked the look slightly better on the actual vita version. The only reason it's getting a 9 is the graphics could have been just slightly better, and this game could have included the psp versions as well. I would have gladly paid more for a heftier collection. Otherwise, it's god of war on the go and both games are still a lot of fun! Expand

    There is no need to qualify the need for this collection ... it's God of War. It's Kratos. What else do you need to know? The graphics look great. The gameplay is great. It's everything I want from God of War, except for something new. The sales of this collection are going to be fantastic. Two great games for $30 (and you know that price will drop after all the groupies like us have bought it). What's missing is a new God of War game for PS Vita. Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta travel well on the Vita, and look great ... but why go to the trouble to add a second analog stick and rear touch screen if you aren't going to create the one game every Vita owner wants?

    Where's a new God of War?

    I would buy this collection no matter how many times I've played it on PS2/PS3, because it's awesome. Being able to take it on the go? Even more awesome. Honestly, these games feel like they were made for the Vita. The hope of every Vita owner who loves GOW is that, at some point, Sony will realize that this is what we're waiting for and will commission a new Kratos game.

    Come on Sony! Pleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease ...

    This collection is good. I would have rated it a 10 if it were the saga (all three PS games and both PSP games). That would have been a tidal wave of awesome. But, for now, it's just a 9, because they were a little shortsighted in what could have been accomplished here.

    If you love the GOW games, get it. At $30, it's worth it.

    I'm an avid GoW fan, so I picked this up for my collection. Priced relatively good as this is essentially a port rather than a new game altogether. Nice gameplay, though I'm not much of a fan of tapping the back panel which was introduced in this port. Expand

    I just picked this up today and was surprisingly underwhelmed but still satisfied. The resolution and textures don't exactly qualify this as an "HD remake" cause its pretty the resolution of the PS2. Maybe worse in some areas. Baffles me that they can make FFX HD so good but make God of War so muddy. Gameplay and everything else is the same. Just don't expect it to look as good. Expand

    If you are already an owner of the previous versions of these games, there is really no need to go out and buy this, unless you want to experience the first two GoWs on the go. If you do not own these games, then you have another chance, that this time is very tempting for people who own both PS Vita and PS3 (Cross-Buy). The technical issues, such as the low framerate, framedrops below 20 and lower resolution, are annoying but they should not distract you from having an epic adventure that these games offer.

    Though, if you own a PS3, you should definitely play those games on that console, as it is by far superior.
