These two ports prove that HD re-releases still have the potential to feel like more than cheap money-grabs; the seamless God of War Collection seems like it was meant for a handheld all along.
The PS Vita port of these glorious games could have been better, but if you want to play them on the bus...
God is a Geek
Minor gripes aside, though, the God of War Collection remains incredibly playable, proving once again that Kratos is one of those rare, ageless creations whose mechanics never seem to age even if his visuals do.
God of War: Collection has some issues with audio and visuals, specially in cinematics, but it's still as brutal as always. Newcomers will enjoy it as much as hardcore fans.
It's not perfect, but if you absolutely must have Kratos on your Vita with some trophies, the God of War Collection will more than suffice.
The God of War Collection on the Vita isn’t a very good port, which is a shame as the both God of War and its sequel are great instalments to the Vita’s library.
God of War and God of War II from the God of War Collection are awesome games, but the touchpad implementations added to the PlayStation Vita pack lack creativity and feel more like forced features than useful ones. The God of War Collection for PlayStation 3 is way better than this new version for the handheld platform.
Both God of War 1 and 2 are incredible games that deserve the best possible treatment. Unfortunately, the Vita version of God of War Collection just doesn't do the series justice.
