Dios de la guerra en Español! Hopefully, that translated well. Our Spanish-speaking readers will have to point out the possible (read: probable) butchery of their language. Apologies are to be arranged. Anyway, what makes this TV spot so special? Aside from being in a foreign language, this God of War: Chains of Olympus advertisement has blood rain down from the sky. Why is that happening? Haven't got a clue. This ad is pretty interesting to watch, even if it doesn't directly relate to anything that happens in the game.

The war of the Gods has descended upon the city. God of War, Chains of Olympus, only for the PSP. The power of the Gods at the palm of your hands.
There you go.

there we go, I couldnt really tell if he was saying "desendido" or not.
Anyway, war = blood, get it?

Man I still haven't beaten the game! In fact I gave up in frustration while fighting the final boss. Every time you die you have to FREAKING WATCH THE FREAKING 5-MINTUE-CUT-SCENE, FFS!!! I was so annoyed by that major game-design-failure that I nearly threw my PSP out of the window.
I then decided to quite the game and wait for a chance to hit the developers with a baseball-bat.

What can't you button smash fast enough?
I finished it on easy because like DMC I thought you always have to play in easy first and move on to normal then hard.

Stuck in the same spot, the cutscene isn't 5 minutes long (more like 1 min) but it definitely doesn't help! And to think my friend encouraged me to start on Spartan difficulty!

Had some trouble with the final boss myself, but once you get the fighting experience, you know how to beat it and it's not that hard anymore.
Concerning this ad, it's a big creepy. But lets not forget that there is quite some blood spilled in God of War, I guess it just becomes part of the landscape. What would of been cool is if a drop of blood fell on his silver PSP, and turned it into the crimson red PSP with Kratos face on the back.

I liked more the Scout trailer in Español.
"Soy el rey de las ostias,el puñetero amo".
Latin American Spanish sounds better especially the people who do the voices in México and Miami. Gears of War voices were really cool.

I have to agree, I´m from Mexico and the spanish from Spain sounds really bad for us, kinda weird...
Like the English from EUA and English from England....
BTW, I beat the game in normal in 5:30hrs, and in 2:40 in Easy, Great game, really epic, but to short, now I´m with Crisis Core, great game, I have already 5 hrs played and I´m in the second level xD

Ah, you see, I'm from Spain and Latin American Spanish sounds a bit odd to us... I guess it's just a matter of what we are used to hear.
I know a few people, specifically ladies, that find some Latin American accents very attractive, specifically Argentinian...
I think it's a cool ad, it describes in a subtle way what the game is about.

Another agree. I'm a native spanish speaker and I absolutely HATE thta spanish accent (from Spain). Mexican voicework is so much better; they mostly use neutral speech, no accents.
And yeah, Gears of War is a fine example... that was the first game I cared to play fully in Spanish, without ever wanting to switch back to original voices.
