God of War Saga
All 5 games, even when purchased pre-owned!
Last month, I went to Gamestop to buy the God of War Saga pre-owned, and there was a voucher for the God of War: Origins Collection. I was actually prepared to buy the Origins Collection separately because I thought the voucher wouldn't work, since it was a used game. The girl at Gamestop suggested that I try the voucher first before buying the Origins Collection. When I took the game home, I put in the voucher code, and lo and behold, it actually worked! I was able to download the Origins Collection! I got all 5 games for the pre-owned price. Now, hear me out. I'm not saying that this will work for everyone that buys a used copy of God of War Saga, but before you buy the Origins Collection separately, check the download code first to see if it works. You might just get lucky like I did. Also, as long as nobody has used the download codes, usually they don't expire. So even if you buy it brand new, there's a good chance the code will still work to this day. As far as the games themselves, they are awesome. I love the gameplay and the graphics. This is a must buy for any PS3 owner!
Beware With Buying Pre-Owned
This is an amazing collection of games for such a very low price. I was able to acquire this gem for the ridiculous low used-game price. What a bargain right? Of course it is, but what I didn't realize until a week later was that if you buy "used", you only get 3 games... not 5 games as displayed on the case cover. It seems that used version of the game doesn't come with "Chains of Olympus" or "Ghosts of Sparta"; these are redeemable via a special coupon (apparently) in a new purchase version of the game. So while God of War, God of War II, and God of War III are great games in, and of themselves - this particular collection in "used" bargain format doesn't yield the full five games as advertised/mentioned on the case. I'm still very happy with the three games I have for the price, but I was just slightly disappointed at my unfortunate discovery. Just beware of what you're actually getting here. In retrospect, I would've purchased the "new" version, considering what I get for the price. Lesson learned. ツ
no playstation plus voucher if you buy new
I bought the new god of war saga it didn't have the voucher for playstation plus 30 day but you get the code for the games
Good for a playthrough at most
I am a huge GoW fan, but in all reality: Once you beat every game at least once YOU WILL get bored with this. I got this last year and beat all of them within 5 days...So if I were you: Borrow it from a friend OR wait till it hits the Greatest Hits price of $20
Great, but wait.....
the GoW series is my favorite series of all time. i saw this come out and thought 5 games for $40 is a steal! but the chains of olympus and ghost of sparta are downloads with a voucher code and we all know how terrible downloads are on Playstation netwrok. i tried downloading ghost of sparta and it look 4 hours and when it installed it failed. so i left my ps3 on overnight to retry and the download stopped and didnt work. i dont see why they couldnt just put another disc in there with those to games considering there is a disc you can buy with those games called the origin collection which i what im going to have to buy i guess
love the graphics and the story line to all of the games in this collection i think people on xbox should go buy a ps3 just for this collection
I was never a huge fan of God of War, but i had never really played it. When i got this game it was hard to step away from the screen. i usually only play a game for maybe an hour and a half before taking a break. i would strongly recomend this game to anyone that has never played God of War. AWESOME GAME!
This is a great game!
Pros: i really enjoy this series and the gameplay is great. Its more of a puzzle/adventure game because there are little puzzles that you have to figure out somtimes. Cons: I game description before purchasing this says that you get a 1 month voucher for playstation plus, well i did not recieve this nor were there any clear directions on how to redeem it, i am very displeased with this and i want my 1 month!!
One of my favorite series
Let me start by saying I absolutely love these games. They are phenomenal and there is nothing out there like them. If you haven't played any of them here is your chance to play all of them up until Ascension comes out. PAY ATTENTION! DO NOT BUY THIS GAME USED BECAUSE THE ORGINS GAMES HAVE A VOUCHER! BUY THIS GAME NEW!
A great collection for the price.
Rather than having to hunt down the collections and GoW3, it's great that they're now all available in one collection. This comes as 2 Discs and a Voucher for the Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta games. These games are pretty big downloads too, so you may want to keep that in mind if you have a bandwidth or data restriction/limit. And as has been said in pretty much every other review, if you get it used, you'll likely not get a valid voucher. The HD reworking is well-done and the trophy support makes replaying all of them worth it. The replay value suffers a bit, especially if you've already played the games previously. Otherwise it's exactly what you'd expect.
