Gory fun with good gameplay but not for kids
This is one game (ok it's technically 2 games) you don't want to play around your kid, parents, or girlfriend. Excessive violence and nudity with a sex minigame in both of the 2 games. But that doesn't mean it's not a fun game. With solid gameplay and impressive graphics (for 2 psp games imported onto the PS3) it also has a surprisingly good story behind all the gore. Chains of Olympus tells events that happened right before the original GoW and Ghost of Sparta adds in filler for between GoW and GoW II. While not essential to play, they add a lot to the series and are still really fun. Most times I don't agree with Commons Sense media's reviews in regards to positive role models but they were right on in this case. Kratos is an anti-hero who kills anyone or anything in his way. The only possible positve message here is in Ghost of Sparta where he risks his life to save his brother from the god of death Thanatos.
