This is an early build, so this shortcoming is likely to be fixed, but pre-rendered cinematics do not play well in the Collection. The transition between gameplay and pre-rendered scenes is very apparent, especially in HD. And to make matters worse, there is a lot of stutter during the playback of these videos. While the visuals are currently a mixed bag, the port's other big change works for the better. While I enjoyed the controls of the original game, the PS3 version accounts for the system's additional analog stick. If you haven't played the PSP games, you'll find yourself able to play through the game as if it were God of War 3. The Origins Collection will be available exclusively on Blu-ray on September 13.
