P*N New This Week: 31st October 2010

Welcome to Platform Nation’s weekly feature where we inform you, the reader, on all the game releases you should be looking out for.

Each week as well as bringing you news about which games are due to hit the shelves in the seven days ahead, the Platform Nation writer will choose their pick of the week.

My pick for this week is:

God of War: Ghost of Sparta


God of War: Ghost of Sparta: is a single player action-adventure game for PlayStation Portable (PSP). The second game in the series to be developed specifically for play on the PSP, Ghost of Sparta is set after the events of the original PlayStation 2 game, revealing the previously unknown struggles and history of Kratos as he challenges the deities of Olympus, eventually taking the status and title of god for himself. The game features bigger bosses and more enemies than the previous PSP release, as well as new combat and weapons systems.

My View: God Of War Chains of Olympus was so impressive on the PSP for me.  I have to confess here and now that although I bought the first two God of War games, I never got into them and they almost past me by. Chain of Olympus pulled me right in and I couldn’t put it down until it was complete. I found it hard to believe they had squeezed so much out of the humble PSP.  I am expecting more of the same for Ghost Of Sparta and a bit more as well.
