God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta

There comes a certain point in every franchise's life where it needs a game that translates to an estranged handheld console. That is what God of War: Ghost of Sparta is - a game of its esteemed series that goes relatively unnoticed by the masses - but somehow still relevant to the fan base. Games that follow this almost curated process always seem to never be good, but never terrible either.

Ghost of Sparta brings Kratos' violent and rage-driven journey into your pocket with the franchises' next offering. The satisfying hack-and-slash mechanics, engaging storylines, and intense visuals will be tested. It does stoke curiosity to see how it stands up.

Vengeance Can Be Pocket-Sized, Too

Much like the first two games, God of War: Ghost of Sparta finds Kratos on a hell-bend mission of vengeance once again within the backdrop of Greek mythology. The game finds much of its allure from the story, so I won't give too much away. The general plotline revolves around the prophecy of the demise of Olympian gods.

Kratos is the marked man foretold to bring about this titanic destruction. He will use his wealth of Spartan warrior skills to do so. The game mechanics are similar, if not identical, from the previous God of War games - but why fix what's not broken? The excellent, fast, and versatile combat paired with a deep storyline arguably creates one of the most memorable experiences in the franchise.

That's probably the most impressive thing about God of War: Ghost of Sparta - the gameplay, visuals, and narrative fit together more beautifully than any other previous offering in the series. Even more stunning - most of the time, you'll forget your playing on a handheld console. Kratos' adventures are that immersive in this game.

Even after two revered entries into the God of War franchise - somehow Ghost of Sparta manages to remain fresh without incorporating much change. Perhaps the satisfaction of gutting enemies and tearing them to shreds never grows old, or maybe the story shift towards Kratos as a victim delivers new angles on gameplay. However you perceive it - the fact is undeniable that God of War: Ghost of Sparta is excellent overall.

Big Surprises Come in Small Packages

The surprise from Ghost of Sparta is how well they have translated the full God of War experience into a handheld console. Other major franchises like Monster Hunter have delivered decent games on the platform - yet never really offered something stunning comparatively to their parent offerings. Kratos and his resonating skill and personality come across brilliantly - if not better.


Here we have the rare PSP game that is thoroughly enjoyable from back to front. The whole experience simply works on many levels, even if nothing has changed from the core mechanics and setting. If you never thought about getting the console before - God of War: Ghost of Sparta certainly gives a reason to invest.
