    It's not a comprehensive museum-style release with tons of improvements, new bonus features, Chains of Olympus, Betrayal, etc., but instead a great rerelease of two of the best games of all time in high definition. Here's hoping Sony continues the trend with another critical darling pair of games soon.
  2. Ultimately, this collection isn’t much more than the sum of its parts, but that is hardly a bad thing considering the quality of the parts. If you still haven’t played the God of War series, you aren’t just missing out on great games. You’re missing pieces of gaming history.

    At $40 for two of the best action games ever made, and the perfect precursors to next March's God of War III, this is a collection that you shouldn't pass up.
  4. 90
    A terrific compilation which gives two of the best games of the previous console generation the tender, loving care they deserve. Utterly essential for everyone with a PlayStation 3.
  5. 90
    Provides just about everything that an action gamer could hope for, from thrilling boss fights to an epic storyline that sweeps through Greek mythology.
  6. The God of War Collection is the equivalent of Disney releasing a remastered version of Snow White: you know precisely what you're getting (because you've probably already seen it) but it looks and sounds so good you can't help but pull out your wallet to buy it again.
  7. What we’ve got here is two games prettier than ever, even much better than most so called next gen games.

    BE WARNED, if your new to the series. YOU WILL GET PISSED OFF ON THE PUZZLES AND CHALLENGES, EVEN IN NORMAL MODE! But after I look back IBE WARNED, if your new to the series. YOU WILL GET PISSED OFF ON THE PUZZLES AND CHALLENGES, EVEN IN NORMAL MODE! But after I look back I remember all the times I dropped the F-Bomb on the game, and know I think the series is awesome. Awesome hack and slash game play, good stories. And got me interested in reading Greek Mythology. Recommended Buy!^_^ Expand

    Just a simple hack and slash game that has you running around mowing down everything and everyone in sight. The thing that sets it apart isJust a simple hack and slash game that has you running around mowing down everything and everyone in sight. The thing that sets it apart is how well executed the final product is. The combat feels fluent, the puzzles are challenging but not too hard and the retrospective storytelling is quite interesting, having Kratos remember bits and pieces of his past as he progresses towards his goal. Whatever that might be at a given moment. Expand

    I hope one day there will be a serviceable HD port of one of the finest action games ever made: God of War. But until then, please don't wasteI hope one day there will be a serviceable HD port of one of the finest action games ever made: God of War. But until then, please don't waste your time with this collection. Why? It wasn't Bluepoint's fault, it's because they were given the botched PS2 code instead of the original one.

    The later botched PS2 version would permanently run like sh*t after a certain music track starts playing, but the PS3 port doesn't really have this slowdown. The remastered version still inherited one crippling flaw, and one new substantial flaw.

    The substantial flaw is that the game's widescreen mode is exactly the same as the PS2's, meaning that it just crops a big part of the 4:3 display on the top and bottom to present it in 16:9 widescreen. It's not widescreen, it's zoomscreen.

    The crippling flaw is this:

    The port of God of War II is completely fine other than the CGI cinematics also being cropped to fake 16:9 widescreen in the same fashion as all of GoW 1's gameplay and cutscenes. Oh, and the fact that it's God of War II.
