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.

Rated 10 out of 10 by Anonymous (: People are too expecting of the collection
This collection was not meant to be an amazing remake of god of war one and two. this was meant for people to be able to pick up and remind themselves of the story before play god of war 3 or for people like me who had never played god of war before picking this up. I really wanted to start with god of war 3 but the collection had to come first due to the amazing storyline i had heard about. Now, i will admit if you don't like button mashers this is probably the game you want to stay away from. However, if you do, like me, or you just don't care and like a good storyline then this needs to be on your top list of things to pick up before you play god of war 3. it will get immersed into the storyline and get ready to kill some gods in god of war 3! but, be warned, the graphics are about like ps2 graphics but just a little better. sony didnt mean to make everything better they just wanted to make it easier for everyone to catch back up with everything in the story! have fun,happy killing

Wow were do I start? Okay if you have never played any of the God of War games, like me. Then you need to hear this. God of War has on of the most gripping and epic stories in a video game. The stroy is a must see! Not only is the stroy good but as you play the game you feel your still in the cut sceens. For exaple it feels as if the feeling of the story never ends in the gameplay... if that makes any sense. As far as the graphics are well its great... great for a Playstation 2 title coming on a blu-ray disc playable for the Playstaion 3. The graphics are not in any way like a PS3 game. But why should it be because its a PS2 game converting to a playable disc for the PS3. But the graphics are very nice compared to the original PS2 games. The sound is awesoem and you feel like Kratos. Now this game has no loading screens and if it does its not bad at all. The style of the gameplay is just beyond brillant. This awesome offer is a MUST buy. Trust me your doing yourself a favor.
Rated 10 out of 10 by GOWFORLIFE GOD collection!!!
Dem, dis game is freaking gorgeous on PS3!!! Despite the fact that I have played both GOW and GOW II on PS2, it feels amazing play them again on PS3. Since I am quite familiar with the control and the storyline, so it's not really challenging at all but all the other factors are outstanding. The sound is terrific, the graphic is outstanding regardless of its only 720p, it looks much better than some of those games that claim themselves to be 1080p. The only bad part about it is the in-game video. They literally took the videos made for the PS2 in standard resolution and put into dis game, so they don't look as nice as the gameplay itself. Anyway, I wish I have never played them on the PS2 so that I can really get myself into Krato's world. Those of you who haven't gotten a chance to play them yet I admire you and strongly recommend dis game to yall. And those of you who have played them like me, this game is perfect for collection. God of War !!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by smadamal69 kratos is awesome!!!!
this game is extremely worth your money and time, ive played both for ps2 and didnt believe the graphics could get any better but they were magnified times 10. It is challenging and you have to use your head to solve some of the riddles in the game which makes it more interesting and gets you more involved into the game. If you are an experienced gamer and find it too easy to beat then try very hard mode it is much more challenging and you have to actually take your time to fight the bosses and the minions that follow up to them. This is a great game with a great storyling, graphics, and it takes quite a while to beat. Its loaded with extras and challenges so when after you beat the game you can get to expand your skills further in the challenge of the gods of challenge of the titans. Again this game has a great storyline and takes some twist and turns that you did not expect, i dont play videogames but i do play god of war and i highly recomend this game to other gamers but also other people that are not familiar with videogames.
Rated 9 out of 10 by billyzane24 Bringing back a classic
When I bought this I was worried I wasted my money. I mean, I have played the 1st games back when they came out for the ps2. I'm incredibly glad I bought this package of the 2 games though. It brings me way back to the time when I had to play the game in secrecy so my mom would not find out what I was watching. It also brought back all the frustrations I had playing the games when they first came out. Some parts and puzzles are just damn difficult. It reminds me of Zelda in that sense, you feel smarter after solving the many riddles this game has to offer. The length and storyline of this game are spectacular. It is definitely not a two day game, it takes time especially if you are trying to find every hidden object. The graphcs have been sped up to higher capabilities for the ps3 and therefore run more smooth but in the end they still are ps2 graphics and if that really bothers you good luck, you are missing a great game playing experience that defines much of the games we see today. God of War is like the Alfred Hitchcock of video games.
Rated 7 out of 10 by FPSfan95 Its good
The game is alright. The story line is long and its fun but its annoying that you fight the same creatures over and over and its easy to kill them all you have to do is wait until they tell you to press a button and Kratos (the main Character) does the rest. It is not challenging. When i first bout it i couldn't stop playing but eventually i didnt want to play at all. Also 1 thing about all god of war games is that once you finish it ther is nothing left to do. The story was entertaing like the things Kratos had to go to but it still wasnt that challenging though there were some funny mini-games (youl'll know if you get the game Because its kinda unappropiate to say) I do though reccomend this because it is fun for a while and if your getting God of war III you should play these two to understand more the storyline. You should get this game but if you get bored easliy like me you should think twice about getting it

I played the original god of war on ps2 once when it was popular and thought it was the best game ever. When i bought a PS3 i wanted a great game to be my first, saw thison the shelf,and remembered playing the first god of war on PS2. I bought it, and don't regret buying it one bit. Though i must admit, i expected the graphics to be a little better, everything else is completely perfect. The storyline is one of the best i've ever seen, and to have a great storyline it needed to be SUPER long, which motivates you to continue on when your stuck on a boss or stumped at a puzzle. The controls were very clear and easy to use, and the soundtrack was perfectly picked and the sound effects placed at the exact right time. the bosses in this game were the hardest of any game i've ever seen, and as for the gameplay in general, slicing people in half with blades on chains or ripping harpies wings off never gets old. This game is great for newcomers to the series and fans alike, and i would recomend it to anybody who likes sword fighting games with a great storyline.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sprutas SOLD on God of War
I'm not going to lie. I was one of those die hard xbox people who would never own a playstation. But finally I was drawn to the dark side with the PS3 and blue ray. One game I lusted after for years was God of War. I had never played it and I was dieing to try it. When I got the PS3, I instantly looked for the game to find out it was on PS2. Low and behold, I was looking for the release date of GOW3 when I saw the collection had been released. Okay, for a 5 year old game, I love it. It is everything I had hoped for and more. First, the remastering of the graphics, I don't know what it looked like before but I swear, God of War 1 looks like a game that could have been released this year. The story line is better than I had hoped for. It is one of those games I can't stop playing and when I'm not playing "like at work" I'm constantly thinking of what is going to happen next. Lastly, game design. The maker was ingenious. He uses every angle imaginable so it seems like a movie the whole time you play. I am sold and any one thinking of getting it. It is worth the money.
