    aleezy23's God of War: Ghost of Sparta (PSP)

    [November 11, 2012 03:37:10 PM]
    I recently picked up the psp game God of War: Ghost of Sparta, weather its killing gods or traversing the underworld, Kratos is defined by his epic exploits. When I played the first psp game Chains of Olympus I was surprised that an epic game can be done on a small screen. Compared to the first game Ghost of Sparta in every way has been enhanced, creating an experience that standouts in an already incredible trilogy. The story is well put together set between the first and second games, it goes more in depth on Kratos childhood life with untold stories about his younger days and family. I would like to say more but I canít spoil it for the new comers, but the story is well connected to the rest of the series that it feels like it should have been the first God of war game.
    Ghost of Sparta has its usual combat style but has a new addition, a fire meter that is below the health and magic meter. The fire ability turns him into a regular Human Torch that allows Kratos to deal more damage and plants delayed fire explosives with certain strikes. Plus, the meter increases rapidly so you will always have it when needed, it is not a weapon its part of Kratos so its fun that Ready at Dawn had integrated it into your moves. Another fighting mechanic is a run and tackle move that makes Kratos feel more brutal and maneuverable. The evade roll is still tied to the shoulder buttons and same to the last game it is still unreliable and rough when done.
    Ghost of Sparta doesnít have allot of huge epic moments as the console games, but it does stack up nicely with a bunch of cool events that builds Kratos back story. The amazing visual quality and good contextual sequences makes it a must for God of War fans.
