    very nice review Arnold. havent seen much of you around lately. will you be doing the gt5 review?

    this game is what i expected it to be and i am glad you are reassuring me of that. i played the demo and could tell it would be great. i am def going to pick this up when i have the cash and time to play it.

    Does the game explain the unanswered questions in gow3?

  3. Saffleur says:

    Ghost of Sparta has nothing to do with GOW 3.

    It's between GOW 1 and GOW Betrayal.

    It furthers the story of Birth if Beast seen in GOW 1. Kratos goes on a journey to discover his origins. Meets Callisto (His mother) and Deimos the brother.

    I won't spoil it but it is a great game and definitely deserves the 9.5

  4. Pandacastro says:

    I mean do they explain who 'the other one' is when gaia and zeus where talking in the end of gow 3.

  5. sawao_yamanaka says:

    Deimos is the other one they spoke of.

  6. Shams says:

    Thanks for the review, Arnold. Definitely will check it out.

    I wish trey'd port this and other great PSP games to the PS2, like Vice City/Liberty City Stories or Silent Hill Origins. I want to play these games, but I don't really like the PSP. The other day I went to my friend's and I played Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. It was really cool, but the PSP is so little and unconfortable (for me at least). I think I'm to used to play on consoles.

    Sounds awesome. I can't believe Game Spot only gave this an 8/10. I just lost a lot of faith in them.

    Holy mother of GOD OF WAR!

    I need to get this!

  10. Jawknee says:

    This game is great. Just finished it a couple of days ago. Going to start my second play through shortly.

  11. AcHiLLiA says:

    Damn, I need to get a PSP.

  12. Temjin001 says:

    I will be playing this one. I thought the demo was top notch and I'm eager to see more.

  13. Snaaaake says:

    The genre of this game is "Genre" 😉

  14. SmokeyPSD says:

    So Ghost of Sparta is reviewed quicksmart but not Peace Walker… Shameful

  15. Lawless SXE says:

    Picked it up earlier today… and I didn't realise that I left my memory stick at home… I don't know why I took it out. Anyway, I've been playing it for about two hours, and will be please to replay it when I lose what I've done thus far. A gripping one indeed.

  16. ArnoldK PSXE says:

    Yes, I will be handling GT5 indeed. NFS Hot Pursuit as well.

  17. ArnoldK PSXE says:

    Unfortunately Konami never sent us the game. Blame them. 🙂

  18. ___________ says:

    I FREAKING LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    this is EXACTLY what GOW 3 should of been!
    its a technological masterpiece, AND its a sh*t load of fun, AND it has the best story in the series to date!
    Finally fills in kratos childhood, why hes so angry, why he goes after the gods, and who is his brother.
    finally all of kratos family issues are revealed!
    put this game on the ps3, with the zipper tech and it would get a instant 10, and would probably be the best game to ever release for the system!
    though, it does compliment the PSP nicely, and im soooooooooooooo glad i bought a PSP just for this!

  19. Banky A says:

    i am happy for you 🙂

  20. Slick Rick says:

    9.5 for psp game,now what does that tell u abt the quality of 2days Ps3 games,bt then again its GOW

  21. TheHighlander says:

    It tells you nothing about PS3 games at all, it's a PSP game. Are you saying that if a PSP game get's a high score it somehow invalidates games on the PS3? Sorry, that makes absolutely zero sense.

  22. Scarecrow says:

    @Slick Rick,
    More like your logic says a lot about your intelligence, or lack of it.

  23. Alienange says:

    There's certainly no doubt that Kratos always brings the fun. Glad to see Ready at Dawn has kept up their skills and delivered another great game for the PSP.

  24. Ninja_WafflesXD says:

    I was definitely going to buy this game but sadly my psp just died on me, literally a couple of hours ago!!! DX How sad is that? Saving up my money to buy this one game (along with KH: BBS) and my psp just goes kaput!

    Is it fair to say that I have the worse luck in the world??
    Lucky for me both my PS3 and PS2 are still up and running…. -_-"

  25. TheHighlander says:

    Funny avatar pic. Microsoft is indeed the source of a lot of profanity.

  26. hehateme says:

    if i could spare the money i would have it… im getting this monster on christmas it will go nice in my ultimate gow collection wont it? lol man so many good quality games out i havn't even had a chance to get mod nation racers

  27. SmokeyPSD says:

    Ah fair enough. Stupid Konami

  28. Jawknee says:

    Oh nonsense. God of War III was just as good. Your complaints with III are so laughable its hard to believe you even played the game.

  29. javon_27 says:

    Microsoft, or Mario Kart?

  30. Gamer46 says:

    Awesome game, no doubt about it. As much as I liked GoW III, I think I enjoyed this one more. Easily one of the best releases of 2010, I didn't think there'd be a game on handheld systems to top MGS: Peace Walker for quite a while, but hats off to Ready at Dawn, this one did so.

  31. Saffleur says:

    Yes, Deimos is the other one. That's why he was originally taken away. The prophecy said a strangely marked warrior. Deimos has crazy birthmarkings so Zeus naturally assumed it was him. In the end it was Kratos instead.

  32. Saffleur says:

    Target is gonna have the PSP-3000 for $127 come Black Friday. Perfect chance!

  34. Ninja_WafflesXD says:

    It was actually Mario Kart….but now that I think about it, Microsoft would possibly be a better fit….possibly XP My stress levels are still high from that cursed Rainbow Road….

  35. Ultimate_Balla says:

    Just read the review. Sounds over the top! And don't you just love it how R@D inserts a new story between the PS2, and maybe 3 in the future, installments? I'll get the game whenever.

  36. Abubakar996 says:

    Powerful and interesting,this game is a Bomb,god of war 3 is good but this one is better.ghost of sparta has better gameplay, enemy kill animation,voice acting excluding Kratos, environment.The next god of war in the PS3 should be like this,or even improve more

  37. Gordo says:

    I know it's a bit late, but for any Vita owners out there this is a no brainer as a $10 download.

    Does take a 1GB chunk out of your memory card but it's brilliant to just had a bit of Kratos now and then on the move. Still looks good and reminds me of GOW III more than Chains of Olympus as the animations are a bit more up to date.
