Chains of Olympus is one of Kratos’s portable spin-off adventures, and therefore should be pretty inconsequential in the grand scheme of the series, but wow if it isn’t both tighter and better focused than either of the previous mainline games I’d played up to this point.

It still has some childish crap thrown in the misguided name of ‘maturity’, such as a dumb sex mini-game that makes no sense in the context of the action or the urgency of the plot, but that blemish aside, this is my favourite in the series so far.
