Default God of War: Chains of Olympus TV commerical

Anyone seen awesome tv commerical? I saw it and holy crap that's EPIC! It's done by design/visual effect/film company named Animal Logic. Their works' excellent (they did 300, The Matrix, 28 Days Week, Harry Potter, etc.).

It'd be better to see it in high resolution. Awesome work by Animal Logic. Too bad I don't have PSP...

The commercial is okay, nothing too spectacular but the game is mind blowing. Seriously worth getting a PSP over for this title alone if you are a fan of the GoW series

I picked GoW and a PSP last Saturday for this game and I have to say it's been phenomenal so far. The graphics and sound are quiet amazing for a PSP game and the story isn't half bad either. Recommend this game for fans of the others or just looking for a good game to play.

I still have to play the originals. I have a PS3 there now. No excuse anymore. ::

Saw the review for this on Good Game. Does look pretty good for a portable game. (As does Ninja Gaiden on the DS).

Had no idea about the sex content of the GoW games. Media seems to ignore these, but got into a huff over Mass Effect!

Those are some of the best games you can put in your ps3 Also I find it funny that the first one looks better due to its progressive scan option which for some reason is missing from the second.
Chains of Olympus is one of the best games to hit the psp and if it had a damn second analog stick it would have been flawless. Its still nice but it takes some getting use to, especially if you've played the originals.

I got GoW1, it was cool looking and stuff and some nice enemies, but the quick time events and repetetive actions in fighting got to me. The series isnt for me.
