Well, better late than never I suppose. I never owned the originals on the PS2, but at least I’ve got myself the re-released versions in their HD glory. Apart from the graphics being updated, the games are exactly the same as the PS2 versions. I only really got into God of War when we went to the Eurogamer Expo in 2009 and I got my hands on the demo of God of War 3, and I was annoyed with myself for never having played these games before, so getting a chance to play them as the God of War Collection was great.
God of War see Kratos 10 years into his service to the Gods, and they ask him for one more favour. To bring down Ares, the God of War. Throughout the game you get glimpses of Kratos’ past and how he came to be the Ghost of Sparta.
