PSP and Chains of Olympus

I always liked the look and feel of PSP Lite, especially its screen size, battery life and internet capabilities. But it was the release of GOW franchise's third and PSP exclusive - The Chains of Olympus that made me get a PSP atlast.

As any of the PS fans would be, Kratos has been the main reason for me to be with PS altime and Kratos comming on PSP essentially means that I should get one.

But, for even a Non PS fan, Kratos and his Chains of Olympus is just enough to make your PSP buy 100% worth the money.

From a visual standpoint, No Handheld game can challenge or even stand up to the God Of War: Chains of Olympus. Its been impressive in handling multiple charectors and heavylighting and changing backgrounds with utmost percision and quality, litterally giving you a feel of playing GOW series in a PS2.

They have managed to retain the heavy sets and even all the moves we are familiar with, and the canvas is huge, from Roman cities to Hades and more.

Scences move between motion video and in-game engine and look fantastic. The levels are varied and expansive and impressive judging by the size of PSP screenPSP's screen is small.

Headphones are a must when playing Chains of Olympus; it sounds fantastic. The well-known God of War theme is also back, and the whole soundtrack fits the action perfectly.

Now that its may, probably one should wait for the PSP GOW bundle annouced for the month of june @ $199. Check the sony press release here for details of there. It definitely looks cool.

Check out the Official Sony PSP page for GOW - Chains of Olmpus for some impressive media worth watching and sharing.
