Today, the complete God of War saga (save for that Betrayal mobile game, but I’m not sure that one counts) is finally together on a single platform, with God of War: Origins Collection, a two-games-on-one-Blu-ray bundle of PSP titles Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta, now joining the God of War Collection (HD remakes of the first two PS2 games) and God of War III on the PS3.
I’ve already reviewed Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta in their original PSP forms, so give those a read as companions to this review.
