With a dynamic fusion of the first two episodes of the God of War series, the God of War Collection offers PlayStation 3 enthusiasts an exhilarating dive into the thrilling world of Greek mythology. This masterful compilation of action-packed games was crafted as an introduction for gamers eagerly anticipating God of War III, the forthcoming saga in the protagonist Kratos’s awe-inspiring journey initially introduced in PlayStation 2.
MAGNIFICENT MYTHOLOGY AND KINETIC KRATOS
Step into the war-torn sandals of Kratos, a former Spartan warrior turned divine Olympian operative with a flair for dirty robot maintenance. The story unravels around the notorious Greek god of war, Ares, who has unleashed chaotic havoc upon Athens by liberating hordes of zombie soldiers and his most fearsome creatures. Tasked by Olympus, Kratos is set on a quest to retrieve the mythical Pandora’s Box to execute an ostensibly impossible feat: toppling Ares.
THE TWISTS AND TURNS OF DIVINE POLITICS
The narrative’s second chapter unfolds in a later period when Kratos, having replaced Ares as the god of war, incites the insecurity of Zeus. The godfather of Olympus sets a trap that strips Kratos of his godly powers, resulting in his death. Nevertheless, Hades fails to snare the resilient Spartan spirit as he escapes the underworld for the second time. Assisted by the Titans, he aims to end the reign of the gods, signaling a new mythological epoch.
BRUTAL BATTLES WITH MYTHOLOGICAL MONSTROSITIES
Armed once again with the devastating Chaos Blades, a gift from Ares himself, Kratos confronts a diverse host of adversaries. From the one-eyed cyclops and the majestic griffin to Hades’ nightmarish three-headed canine Cerberus, the warrior’s journey is littered with the epitomes of Greek mythological terror.
GLORIOUS GRAPHICS AND BLISTERING PERFORMANCE
Courtesy of the gifted hands at Bluepoint Games, famed for their work on Blast Factor, both the featured episodes in the God of War Collection are rendered at a silky-smooth 60 frames per second with a resolution of 720p. These revamped games present a visually stunning experience that genuinely immerses gamers in the ancient world of Greece, igniting their screens with fiery battles and colossal landscapes.
BONUS FEATURES AND TROPHIES
Adding a cherry on top, each game in the collection includes a set of Trophies, ramping up the fun factor as you revisit Kratos’ epic saga. Moreover, the game box contains a code for downloading a demo version of the highly-anticipated God of War III. The extra love from the developers turns this God of War Collection into a collector’s dream come true.
