February 19, 2008 - Excellent - As a God of War game, Chains of Olympus is slightly lacking, but as a PSP game it's fantastic, and as a technological achievement it's off-the-charts phenomenal. If this game had shipped a couple of years ago, I think people would perceive the PSP a lot differently today.
February 26, 2008 - Excellent - Not only is Chains of Olympus a worthy addition to the God of War franchise, it also stands on its own as a triple-A title in the PSP library.
March 2, 2008 - Excellent - God of War: Chains of Olympus is an Olympian triumph for the Sony PSP. Visually, it's the best-looking PSP game out there. Audio-wise, it hits the mark. The gameplay is surprisingly good and the bonus content will keep you busy long after the main adventure ends.
February 29, 2008 - Excellent - Chains of Olympus is more than another console game grafted to PSP; it's a pint-sized triumph for the platform.
February 28, 2008 - Excellent - This is nothing less than a full-fledged entry in the God of War series, and anyone who wants to get to know Kratos a little better before God of War III eventually hits should play it.
March 3, 2008 - Excellent - If you're looking for God of War 3, you'll be disappointed, but everyone else should be happy to be playing one of the best looking, playing, and designed handheld games ever. This is the top shelf of gaming on the go.
February 18, 2008 - Excellent - God of War: Chains of Olympus is a stellar achievement on the PSP. It plays perfectly into the franchise's storyline and offers up the same level of intense action as its console counterparts.
March 28, 2008 - Excellent - God of War: Chains of Olympus is at its core a remarkably simple game, but it's presented so well and plays so smoothly that the end result is a must-own PSP title.
March 11, 2008 - Good - [Chains of Olympus is] not quite the full God of War experience, but none of this detracts too significantly from a game that is well worth buying despite its compromises.
April 2, 2008 - Good - Despite that Chains of Olympus is not God of War III, it still remains an entertaining, if short, entry into Sony's vaunted franchise.
March 4, 2008 - Good - Some new ideas and a better mixture of puzzles, platforming, and bosses would have been divine, but Chains of Olympus is an excellent game that delivers most of what you've been praying for--more God of War.
