    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...

    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.

    Esta recopilación de juegos de God of War es excelente para la psvita, de lo mejor de la era de ps2, dos juegos de acción y aventura epicaEsta recopilación de juegos de God of War es excelente para la psvita, de lo mejor de la era de ps2, dos juegos de acción y aventura epica Hack and Slash, el combate de estos juegos siempre es brutal, sencillo y directo, pocos juegos son tan buenos en este aspecto como esta saga, con pasajes de acertijos que no son tan difíciles pero cambian la mecánica por instantes y se sienten satisfactorios. Solo tengo que criticarle que algunos de los videos del juego no se les haya dado el trato HD. Por lo demás son juegos de 10. Expand

Sound and music is look great, and more mini games & puzzle is can make frustation, but anyway this games is look amazing and more challenge. Expand

    God of War has issues in it's frame rate and control as the game runs and plays exactly like the PS2 version without any updates.

However, this is good G.O.W game on the go, if you put aside it's issues as it's story is fantastic and enjoyable to play. Get it if you never played a G.O.W game. Expand

    Its portable versions of God of War 1 and 2 with better graphics for 30 bucks..hard to argue with the price tag and I think its well worthIts portable versions of God of War 1 and 2 with better graphics for 30 bucks..hard to argue with the price tag and I think its well worth getting either way. Here are my main complaints with it:
    1. The graphics in some of the cinematics are HEAVILY compressed and honestly look even worse then the PS2 which I didn't think was possible given that hey are in a smaller square box on the Vita as opposed to the whole screen. I'm not sure how they messed this up so bad honestly.
    2. Minor lag in some areas after extended play time. I experienced this after about 4 hours so I don't think it would happen that much. The lag was definitely noticeable but after I defeated all the enemies it was completely gone and never experienced lag since. Not a huge deal.
    3. Lack of settings options. The main thing is it would have been nice to see a subtitles option as I usually either play my vita on a loud bus or in a quiet waiting room. I haven't tried the 2nd God of War yet but the 1st one only has 3 settings options, music volume, sound effects volume, and controls which are not rebindable. You can tell they kinda half assed it with this port sadly.

    Overall, you get what you paid for. Its GoW 1 and 2 with better graphics on the go. Despite the fact that this is a rather shoddy port for a great game for what it is its still worth getting in my opinion.

    This collection contains the first 2 main God of War games, originally released on PS2. Both of them are really great hack n' slash games withThis collection contains the first 2 main God of War games, originally released on PS2. Both of them are really great hack n' slash games with great combat, some platforming and puzzles, and an epicness to scale of action and music production. And that Kratos growl, you 'll never forget him LOL.

    The only annoying thing is the abundance of Quick Time Events while executing enemies. Kratos is one of Sony's mascots, but he is a shallow character, hell bent on revenge against the Greek Gods. Another minor issue of this collection is a peculiar divide in story cut-scenes. Some of them are rendered in real-time and have no issue. Others are ported straight from the PS2 versions and are really low quality and look ugly because they are FMVs with blocky polygons and weren't upscaled for HD. It's a pity that the porting studio didn't fix this.

    Unfortunately the PS Vita version of this collection has technical issues. These games run at 30 fps, unlike the PS3 versions where they run at 60 fps. Graphics are presented at a sub-native resolution with no Anti-Aliasing, but the small screen hides most of the graphical downgrade. The lack of R2/L2/R3/L3 buttons on the Vita means there are some unavoidable compromises with these buttons being assigned to corners of the touch screens, but there is nothing that impacts direct combat. If you have the choice then buy the PS3 version, but know that the Vita version is also highly playable. I have played both versions and beat both games to the end, and I only had trouble at GoW2's collapsing bridge section with multiple failed attempts (to be fair, this particular section is meant to be challenging even on the PS3 versions), but I am not sure it was because of the 30 fps or frame drops.

    Nevertheless, God of War games are always fun. You won't find another hack n' slash game or series more epic and fun than God of War. And let's hope someday Sony decide to port these games to PS4.

    500 tries on collapsing bridge - and NULL success. You want to be angry and frustrated? - This is bundle for you. It was hard enough on PS2500 tries on collapsing bridge - and NULL success. You want to be angry and frustrated? - This is bundle for you. It was hard enough on PS2 and 3. But now on the small screen? Devs: you do beautiful cinematographic things XOR you do hard things - not any other way around. And to think that i got this with my Vita in hospital where i wуку trying to cure neurosis. You devs - you be cursed and burn in hell ! Expand
