If there is an action game that puts you in a mythological storyline against the wrath and rage of gods, it has to be God of War (GOW). No doubt, it is a mesmerizing action title that one can remember even in the old PS2 days, and one that stands out among other hack-and-slash titles.
Fast-forward to today, God of War: Ghost of Sparta is the latest addition to the GOW series and made for the PSP. It is a good thing that this game was released as many fans may still be suffering from some withdrawal symptoms from God Of War 3 on the PlayStation 3.
Many were skeptical with the game’s announcement when it first came about, and whether the GOW: Ghost of Sparta can pull off with the limitation of the PSP’s graphics. Looks like these gamers were proven wrong.
Was the lack of awesome graphics an obstacle to play this game? Not quite. With Ghost of Sparta, the game maintains the high standard of quality in GOW series while pushing the PSP to the limits with an intriguing and packed storyline, as well as awesome gameplay mechanics.
