In case you didn't join me back in 2013 when I replayed the entire God of War series, the second entry is by far my favorite. So when I heard that the first two Kratos tales would be hitting the PlayStation Vita this year, I was pretty excited. But when it came time to actually give it a spin, I was largely unimpressed.
You see, the God of War Vita Collection is the same package that was published on the PS3 back in 2009, consisting of God of War I and II. While the PS3 edition was 60 frames per second and generally looked pretty great, not as much care was put into the Vita version. I noticed slight slowdown right out of the gate in the game's menus, and it didn't look as smooth in general -- in other words, it's more inline with playing it on the PS2.
