God of War Ghost of Sparta: Return of Kratos
God of War is a video game for the PlayStation 2 console released on March 22, 2005. It is an action adventure game based on Greek mythology. God of War developed by Sony Computer Entertainment’s Santa Monica division. It is the first installment of theGod of War series of games and the second chronologically.
Now the major “God of War” trilogy may have wrapped with a climactic, head-pounding battle atop Mount Olympus, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of Kratos. Apart from the inevitable sequel in which he’ll take out his aggression on Odin and Eostre, Kratos is returning for another flashback mission on the PSP titled “God of War: Ghost of Sparta.”
“God of War: Ghost of Sparta” takes place immediately after the events of the first “God of War.” Kratos may have managed to best Ares in battle, but his quest to become the new god of war was apparently just beginning.
Unfortunately we already know that he’s unsuccessful in his efforts to rid himself of the nightmares, and that his quest is doomed to fail, but at least he’ll be yanking cyclops eyes as he goes.
The announcement goes to on say that “Ghost of Sparta” will have 25% more gameplay and will feature new technology which allows for more enemies on screen and more realistic graphics.
The game is being developed by Ready At Dawn, the studio which has unquestionably mastered the PSP hardware to the point where their games are leaps and bounds ahead of the field. This is their second “God of War” game on the PSP. The first was excellent, if a little short, but 25% more gameplay should help make up for it.
God of War: Ghost of Sparta will be released later this year.
It may be an EPIC end to this trilogy.
