Review: Bro-down in God of War: Ghost of Sparta

Kratos has issues. Serious, bloodthirsty, anger management, liberate your head from your shoulders and suck the marrow from your bones before your body hits the floor ones. Sure, he’s a hard bastard and may have made Zeus’ family get-togethers a little more intimate, but have you ever stopped for a moment to consider, why? Yeah, yeah, we all know that Ares fooled him into shuffling his missus and son from this mortal coil, but there’s more to it than that. In the words of the Force wielding muppet Yoda… there is another. His brother Deimos. Well. Sort of.

Kratos’ second PSP adventure is quite possibly the finest title to hit a handheld and delves deeper into his past, illuminating one of the many reasons the Gods of Olympus have incurred his wrath.

“The meat and potatoes of Ghost of Sparta is by far, the story as you battle to The Underworld to discover your brother’s fate, and rescue him from the bowels of Hell. You’ll thank me for not elaborating, as it really is one of the stronger elements of the franchise, and gives a decent bit of insight as to why Kratos is so ill tempered and filled with justifiable rage towards the gods.”
