The God of War franchise may be the single most recognizable brand on the Playstation family of consoles. Both of the PS2 releases were so good, they were re-released in HD as the God of War Collection for the PS3. The third game is also a strong contender for this year's Game of the Year title.

Ready at Dawn is no stranger to the series, having already made the excellent God of War: Chains of Olympus for the PSP. Now they are ready to dive further into Kratos' past with God of War: Ghost of Sparta which is out today.

"Since our announcement last spring and a strong showing at E3 2010, God of War: Ghost of Sparta has remained one of the most eagerly anticipated titles of the year," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President, Product Marketing, SCEA. "Kratos' latest adventure has truly set a new bar for the portable platform, leveraging the full power of PSP to create an epic experience combining beautiful visuals and a thrilling new story that fans and newcomers can enjoy anytime, anywhere."

Our very own Parjanya Holtz declared it the "God of PSP Games". He also interviewed the game's director, Dana Jan, in what is not only a hilariously long exchange, but a fantastic read as well.

This new release follows Kratos' rise ascension to power as the God of War. In his quest to rid himself of the nightmares that plague his every waking moment, he must embark on a journey that will reveal the origins of lost worlds, and finally answer long-awaited questions about his dark past, including details about his family that have yet to be discussed in any God of War game prior.

Don't know about you, but knowing the story and what Kratos goes through, I'd be a pretty angry person as well. I just don't think I'd be able to rip out the eyeball of my local cyclops.
