Rated 8 out of 10 by Niggles God Of Galore
I never had a chance to play Chains Of Olympus or Ghost Of Sparta as I don't own a PSP. So naturally I wuz pretty excited when they ported the 2 PSP Titles to the PS3. So after finally playing to two God Of War Prequels I can safely say it iz worth having this collection on PS3. Ghost Of Sparta alone wuz easily one of the best God Of War Titles (It actually had a Story unlike GOW3). However I beat it in a mere 4 or so hrs so that wuz a bit of a set back. If your a experienced God Of War player you will prob find yourself beating both games in one night. So as far as Lasting Appeal there is none. Even the lill extras they offer after you beat the game can be done in a matter of minutes. So although I liked wat I played and enjoyed the Origin stories the game itself ain't worth wat they are chargin. I would recommend buying the Origins Collection Used if you do not like game sthat u can beat in the span of 4 hrs.
Rated 9 out of 10 by soulouloilister Pretty good game, but...
Okay, I got this game for two reasons. One: I love the God of War series. Two: I never got to play these games on my PSP, and when I finally could, my PSP got lost, and when I found it, the screen was cracked open and the buttons didn't work. So yesterday, I went to Gamestop to look for Playstation 3 games, because I had just gotten my second PS3 a few days ago. I came across God of War Origins, took it home, and I have some mixed emotions about it. Let me start on gameplay, I love the gameplay, very action packed, which is what you would expect from GoW. The graphics on the other hand, are highly disappointing. You know how God of War III has excellent graphics, and this GoW was released after GoW3. But when you look on the box, it says, "Remastered in high definition". Nah. The graphics are just like the PSP game graphics, which are like the PS2's. But something made me forget about the graphics, and I don't know what it is. Probably the storyline, which is another majorly awesome part to these two games (Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta). Stop reading this, get this game, and if you like, add me on PSN. ImmortalDylan. BAI YALL.
Rated 9 out of 10 by HeavyMetalSushi A Must Play!
I never got to play these games back on PSP because, well...I never owned one, but I had heard good things about both. I was excited when they put them on a Playstation 3 collection, so I could finally play them, because I am a pretty big fan of the God of War franchise. I have played the Ps2/Ps3 titles and loved them as well! Each of these 2 games is fairly short, maybe around 5 hours each, but combined this collection is totally worthwhile! If you're a God of War fan or epic action/adventure fan and, like me, have never played these...I highly recommend checking them out! Ghost of Sparta is the best of the 2, but both games are pretty awesome! Looking forward to God of War 4 in September of 2012! XD

God Of War is great Kratos is so great that they don't need to make new one's all they have to do is remaster the old ones and fans are happy now that tells you something about this game.I already owned and beat these two games on PSP and they were alsome.The best two games on the PSP and now they will be on the big screeen that's even better.God Of War 3 got a 10 out of 10 in Game Informer and you can't disagre as to why.All of the God Of War Games are great.I would love to see a God Of War 4.Which is unlikely but makes you wonder why they keep remastering the old ones.Maybe they are just holding us off for now You never know. But yeah these games are great A MUST BUY FOR FANS!!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by JBman Epic as always but...
God of War is gaming done right. They all have wowed fans of the series. I never got around to playing these games on the PSP. I got the remastered GOW I & II for the PS3 as well as GOW III and played through them all within a couple days. They left me hungry for more. The only thing I have to say about these epic games for this collection is that after playing GOW 3 and just being completely amazed and dazzled by its stunning graphics and epic storyline... It's hard to go back to PS2 looking graphics. You'll catch yourself saying, "Man this would look so AWESOME if it had PS3's graphics...." But i digress, this game is great for fans of the series like i said, and won't dissappoint.
Rated 10 out of 10 by HelloMortals Two already great games, made better!
Both games are incredible as you'd expect from any God of War game. Graphics are very nice - especially Ghost of Sparta which really looks fantastic. Sound is awesome, the musical score is superb and so is the voice acting. Gameplay is very fluid, fun and fantastically well made. Story is great too, it gives a lot of depth to Kratos' character and will make you understand the great story in the main trilogy better. I'd say each game with take around 7.5 hours each (15 hours total) depending on what difficulty you play and if you actually go out of your way to look for hidden treasure chests. Don't hesitate, buy this exemplary collection asap

ok so i know people are pumped for this release on 9/13/11. well lets look at what ps3 owners/fans are getting. Here you have 2 psp games ported onto the ps3. again, psp games which = bad graphics. and not to mention each game takes about 5-6 hours to complete, so depending how good you are at these games, your maybe getting 10-15 hours of total gameplay for the price of 40$. so lets recap, 2 PSP games ported onto the ps3, w/mildly ok graphics,(considering what a ps3 is capable of), max of 15 hours gameplay, and your out 40$. id say either wait til gow4 comes out or at least till they drop the price of this so called improved game down to 20$.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ThatGamerGuy1 Absolutely brilliant!
These may have originally been PSP games, but don't let that fool you as they're definitely two of the best games you can buy for the PS3! They've been remastered with HD visuals and have much better controls thanks to the comfortable PS3 controller. Both games have brilliant graphics considering they're remastered PSP games and the sound is amazing. The gameplay is just as great as the console iterations and the story in both games is superb. Buy this game and the GoW: Collection and GoW III for the chance to experience what is in my opinion, the greatest video-game franchise of all time on your PS3! Truly epic games.
Rated 10 out of 10 by LifeLongGamer God of Awesome!
Well what can I say, both of the best games on the PSP have just been made better on the PS3 with improved visuals, performance and controls. Both games have the standard amazing gameplay God of War games are well known for, the visuals are great especially when considering the games origins, the soundtrack and voice acting are perfectly done and the stories are superb & fill in a lot of blanks in the main trilogy which will make fans appreciate the already fantastic storyline in GOW I & II & III even more! It's a bargain price for two absolutely phenomenal games, BUY NOW! :P
