I just rented God Of War Chains of Olympus for the PSP, and it kicks ass. I thought this game would suck cuz it would just be a button masher, but it's totally won me over. If the PS2 games are as good as this one, they're definitely worth at least a rental if not purchase. The PS3 version is supposed to be out this year I think. I'm thinking about renting Heavenly Sword now as it's basically the same game only with a female protagonist.
I was a little shocked at how "adult" Chains of Olympus is. At one point in the game the head character had a threesome with two chicks who he walked in on. After the threesome I was awarded with extra health. This game is nuts.
Need to play the first God of War in order to get the story of how GoW2 comes to be. FYI, there's also a threesome scene in the first GoW, but they don't show anything. They just pan over to the side of the bed and you do controller movements to gain red orbs.
Rented God of War II and Heavenly Sword. Heavenly Sword definitely tries hard to be as good as God of War, but it just doesn't cut it. One reason it's not as good is she can't jump, and that's just crap. God of War II was bad ass, especially after going through the options menu and realizing I could play in wide screen, and up it to progressive scan. Found a cheat later that upgrades it to even better video, but I'd returned it already.
yeah seriously... there were a few other ones that didnt have jump iirc time splitters, but didnt really need it becuase the gameplay was so damn frantic and fast... but yeah fantasy and a game like this especially...
