God of War: Chains of Olympus fills in some of the details of what Kratos did between his unfortunate family-killing incident and Ares' attack on Athens which was chronicled in the first God of War game.

During those long years, Kratos served the Gods of Olympus as their personal warrior. He roamed the lands and seaways of the world and put things right, at least 'right' according to the wishes of the Gods. Kratos agreed to work for the Gods in return for having his crimes forgiven and his memories removed. He hoped this would stop the nightmares that reminded him of killing his family.

Chains of Olympus follows the God of War template very closely. Kratos is, of course, armed with his signature weapons: the Blades of Chaos; and most of the combos you will have practised in the PS2 games will also work here.

You will be able to boost the abilities of your blades and gain magical attacks as the game progresses as well as pick up mystical artefacts that will aid your quest. Chests and orbs return from the earlier games as mechanics for restoring health and magic, gaining experience and boosting your maximum health and magic levels.

Chains of Olympus is an incredible technical achievement. The PS2 games were exceptional, making full use of the hardware, looking great and playing extremely well. Here we have a very similar game squeezed onto the PSP with the only concessions to the format being a reduced playing time and slightly altered controls.
