I'm interested in playing the God of War series, so which game should I start with? I know Chains of Olympus is a prequel, but are you supposed to play God of War 1 before playing that? Are there spoilers in Chains of Olympus that might ruin God of War 1 for me?
Which God of War should I start with?
Obviously 1 would be the best start for someone new to the series. But, starting with 2 and moving on to 3 wouldn't be a bad option either. 1 introduces Kratos as a character and explains why he is the way he is. But 2 introduces an overarching story that is concluded in 3. Starting with 1 would give you a more complete experience but isn't necessarily required.
So? The characterization of Kratos ruins your enjoyment of the combat? That makes most games bad, doesn't it?
1 was the only decent entry in the series. Everything after that is just RAAAAAAAAAAGH IM SO ANGRY KILL SHIT IN HALF TO THE DEATHHHHHH
@sewageking1: I would just play through the mainline entries first. If you still want more God of War after that, play the PSP games. And the God of War collection is worth it I'd say. Can you really find them for that much less than 25 to 30 dollars on the PS2?
For the price I don't think you can go wrong with buying the collection on PS3, you'll get the higher resolution graphics. Beat those and then get a copy of the 3rd game... If you still want to play GOW after that buy the PSP games, there good but I think the home console games are wear you want to concentrate first.
Just play 1 then 2 then 3. I don't know enough about the God of War PS3 collection to say anything about that. I think the games look a little better or something. Or I could be going crazy.Nope, you're right. Get the GoW Collection for PS3. I couldn't bring myself to finish the first game but I enjoyed the second game quite a lot, even more so than 3. Oh and the PSP game Chains of Olympus takes place before the first but you don't really have to play the PSP games.
