God of War You probaly know the controls already so I'm just going to do the faq. Hints: Break everything that looks breakable. Go through the entire room to see if you can find chests, etc. Block and roll a lot in normal or harder or you'll get killed. If a circle appears above their heads press it to get more orbs. *unless it's a minotaur or siren or gorgons because thel'll relaese magic or health instead of red orbs. When gorgons try to freeze you, use Poseidons Rage. The Agean Sea You start off on the front of the ship and there are dead soldiers coming at you so kill them all until the hatch opens up and more come out, kill all of them and then open the hatch and jump down. Open the chest if you need help and go through the right and bust open the barricade. In the next room a mini-boss appears, Hydra Spawn, it does a one or two chomp attack so wait at the doorway and after it attacks quickly roll forward and hit it a couple of times and roll back, keep doing this until a circle button appears and follow the sequnce. After you kill it, walk towards the other side and go out the left and up the stairs, bust the barricade and open the door. Kill all the fluing monsters and another Hydra Spawn will pop up. Hit it 2-4 times until it roars and roll back, it also pounds its head in the groung in this order: left, right forward, so stay in front of it, and the last attack is where it tries to swallow you but keep tapping circle and you'll counterattack it, keep doing this and you won't even get touched. After you kill it open the two doors on the right and open the chests. Next, jump into the water and swim northwest and climb up the ropes. Kill them all and carefully walk on the beam, on the way take a right and open a chest containing orbs. Go back and head north now and it's cutscene time. Open the chest if you need health and save. After jump down and go forward to the middle and you'll see a small box behind a big one. The strategy is to get the box to the end so you can get up to where the archers are. Wait for a couple of them to shoot and drag the box out the right and kick it forward so the arrows won't hit it. Keep doing this until you get the box in one of the two gaps. Double jump up and kill the archers and go through the hallway. After you go out go up the ladder and climd up the net. Grabbing them from the side with circle will give you a couple of red orbs to help but it is quicker to grab them from the bottom. keep climbing till you get to the top and go to one of the side beams to get another chest. Slide down the rope to another ship. Bust all three barricades and get the chests at the sides then go in the middle room and get Poseidon's Rage(Rage from now on). After he stops talking , kill all the enemies and proceed. When you get out, save then go right and climb the net to fight the last boss(es) of the level. You have to beat the two small Hydra before you can get to the big one, so get killin'. After you do enough damage to each one they will fall over, quickly climb up the crates on the side and jump on the circular platform to drop it on the Hydra's head, do this for both. Climb up the rope to fight daddy hydra. Its attacks are basically the front and side chomp. Stay near the part where you climbed up and you won't get hurt. Hit it after it does ots chomp and it will release blue orbs. Stand opposite of the net and keep hitting it until it's about to attack and when its mouth comes down quickly use Rage and you won't get hurt. After you use Rage, hit it normally with a full combo of squares. Eventually a circle will appear above its head and you know what to do. Keep bashing its head into the pole until it breaks in half and the next time you will pull its eye through it. After you kill it run in its throat and get the key from the old guy. Then go out and climb up the crates on the right side and open the chests and slide down the rope. Go in the locked door for a cutscene. After the cutscenes, jump on the bed and press circle and do the mini game. The first time it give you a lot of orbs and 5 each time after. Go out hte hall, save and climb up the ladder. You should've have enough orbs to power up your blades of Chaos by now. Go on land and kill the monsters, whenever a circle appears above their heads press it and press another button to perform an instant kill, it gives you extra orbs. Go across the bridge and kill more. After this go in the opening on the right and jump in the water and double jump to the ground. Go through the halls and kill them all and go up the crates and keep going except jump across to the elevator instead of going in the opening again. Ride it up and you'll fight minotaurs, just keep out of reach and do the square, square, triangle combo to knock the down and then hit them. After you kill them keep going and go up another elevator. In this area you'll fight monsters with spiked balls on their wrist, when its about to attack just roll to the side. When a circle appears go close and press it then you'll have to press a couple of random buttons to instant kill it. After you kill all go to the top right corner to get a chest of reds orbs and go in the hallway, once you're in a room full of crates bust open the two wooden ones and go up, there are a couple of chests in this room so don't leave till you get them all. In the next room you have to fight Medusa so just block when she tries to attack and Rage when she try to freeze you, if you don't have magic later on in the game and the gorgons are trying to freeze you, DON'T jump up and down, it only makes it worse, roll left and right until they stop. Just hit Meduse with normal attacks and you should win easy, you get Medusa's Gaze(Gaze from now on). After you have to freeze all the minotaurs and kill them, don't worry you won't run out of magic here. After that go through the hall killing enemies and climb the ladder, when you're near the top double jump backwards to get a chest. Go back up the ladder and run past the lever and pull back on the bow and arrow machine, after that go pull the lever and use the machine again. Go in the hall and take a left and go down killing all the enemies and open the gate. Go back up the ladder and go back in the hallway and go up the ladder on the right. Kill all the enemies and climb the wall on the right, climb up about 10 feet and jump on top of the boxes and jump down on the roof and jump to the other side and open the chests. Go down and in the gate you opened earlier. Go back up the ladder on the right and climb up the wall again, keep following the wall and kill all the enemies, grab them from the side and keep pressing circle will give you extra orbs. Keep going until you get to a platform, kill the dead guy and tip the statue over. After go down and jump on the statue and climb the ladder, kill the gorgons and use Rage if you have to. Keep going up killing enemies on the way, when you're at the very top and they're all dead, use the machine and jump up and grab the rope, immediately jump back down and kill the guys that just came out of the ground. Go across the rope killing the guys on the way, grabbing them is easier and they give you health back so don't worry if they hit you. After you get to the other side go down and open the block door and go back and use the machine again, a couple of minotaurs will come out at you so kill them and save. Keep going and eventually you'll get to an overhead view of the battle area. Save and go left, when you go in the cave kill one of the minotaur and the other one you have to freeze while he's on the button. Get on the opposite side of him and the button and wait until its near and use Gaze. If it take acouple of tries don't worry cause there an infinite magic chest. Freeze him on the button and roll past the gate before it comes down. You'll come out in a place with a bunch of house, make sure to bust your way in the house to get chests and jump on the roofs to get more chests. Go until you come to a barricade, kill the archer and break the barricade. Swing on the rope and jump to the second one and climb up a bit and jump to your left to get a chest. Swing across to the other side and search the sides as you go up the stairs to get more chests(there more than you think). When you get to the top you have to fight cyclops, just keep your distance and use square, square, triangle until a circle appears and you should have no problem. Killing civilians will give you health. Go in the hall in the upper left and you'll come to a room with a bunch of paintings, swing at some of them and they will break, revealing chests. Keep going up and a lady will run from you, when you get to a point where you have to jump across a gap, break down the door first and get the items then jump across. After there is a cutscene get the chest to the left and jump down and get the key from her. Then you'll have to go all the way back up, killing on the way. Guys with shields need to be knocked out with square, square, triangle(SST from now on). When you get up there, jump across the gap at the right and unlock the hatch and open it. Keep going till you come to a place with vines on the wall. Climb it and pull on the direction stick to the other side and double jump to the vine on the other wall. Keep doing this till you come to an opening with blood and magic chests. Go in and you'll fight wraiths, they can go into the ground and pop up and attack you, just block. After you kill them go up the stairs and you have to kill more along with some guys with the ball chains. When you kill everyone the way opens and so through it and to the left to get a chest. Head right and cling on the vines. Don't Jump to the second pole, instead jump on the platform with the chest and break through the door, kill wraiths, then kill those annoying archers. Kick the board and open the chest and jump on the vines and head right. Head right across the brigde and push the machine left and into the next room. Open all the doors, the second one on the left has enemies so kill them all, after put the machine on the circle next to the opening and pull the lever. Take it off, pull the lever, and put it back on and pull the lever again. Go up the ladder and get the chest. Bust open the door with an arrow and go in and get Zues Fury(Fury from now on). Go out and kill the archers on the roof with Fury. Go back across the brigde and go into the room and save. Head up the ladder and kill all the enemies. Go left and swing across the ropes to get more chests. Go back and head to the upper right of the first roof and go up the ladder for another chest. Go down and go to the next roof, keep going killing enemies ont the way until you see a guy across a gap, Fury him. Keep going until you're back on the first roof and go down, kill the wraiths and save. Go back up and head across the bridge. Get all the chest and use the elevator and go down. Go forward and across the beam, you'll notice a couple of chest to the right but I haven't been able to get there yet. Go forward and up the mountain killing on the way. On the way bust the cracked wall and get the chest. Once you get up you'll have to fight Gorgons and Harpies, afetr you kill them all, get the chests to the left and right, save and head into the room. In the room Harpies will fly out and attack you until you block up the holes. Go to the end and drag those statues to cover the holes. Now go to the opening at the bottom right and jump to the left, there should be a chest. Go up the stairs and walk on the beams. Go straight, turn left and go until it forces you to turn right, halfway jump to the right and get the chest behind the glass. Go back across to the other side and save. Go left through the hallways killin until you get a cutscene where you have to save the oracle. First drag the two statues to the upper right of the area and place them apart enough so you can jump from the place with the red orbs on one statue to the other onto an area with a couple of chests. After go south along the right wall and get the chests behind the cracked walls. Now drag one statue in front of the fireplace near the elevator and take the other one up the elevator and to the edge on the right and drop it on top of the other one. Drag the statues to the upper left near the wall and jump on the place with the red orbs and jump on the big platform and jump on the statues. One you get up the vines you get 66 seconds to save her. Just wait for the paddles to stop and jump across. This is self explanitory and you should be able to save her with 30 left easy. Once you saved her go back up to the part where you have to walk across beams and take the beam that goes to the right to get a chest. Go down and through the door she opened and keep going until you're at a cliff, go up the walkway all the way until you find a statue of Athena and get the chest. Now go back down and across the big sword and into the sewer. When you get to the bottom their is a chest in the room so don't miss it. Just keep going through the sewers killing and getting chests on the way. You can't get lost since its a one way place. When you go up the circular stairs again pull the lever and go up. Head to the battle area again, save, and take a right this time. You'll come to a place with two huge statues and there is a chest by the feet of the right one.

You'll get attacked by enemies evry time to try to move the rock forwar do do SST to knock them down while use kick the rock forward or if you're like myy friend and you suck, just stay there for about 10 minutes and the belt will stop moving. Once you get up keep going and blow the horn and run to the other side. Go up the stairs and you'll get attacked by a lot of Sirens, if you have a hard time use Rage of the Gods(ROTG) once you beat them go halfway down the stairs and use the chests and go back up and blow the horn. Pandora's Temple Save and go forward, take the left and keep going till you're right under the gatekeeper and pulll out the blocks and jump up to him. Once he opens the gate go down and you'll have to fight Cyclops, just dodge and use the grab-instant kill when it appears to get extra orbs. Go up the stairs and get the chests to the left and right and spin the lever to open the dor and go in. Kill all the enemies and press R2 at the door to open it. Run to the left until you see a skull on the wall but you can't go through it, go in the opposite room with the meat mashers and roll forward when it begins to pull apart. Kill the archers in this room and oull the lever in the mini-room. This will be called Save Room(SR) from now on. Go out and spin the lever, the room right after the SR is missing TWO MUSE KEYS, remember this. Keep spinning until you see a room with aa glowing light, go to it to get Artemis' Blade(Blade). Go forward and save. Go in the next room and use Blade on the enemies and test it out. Once the Gorgons start coming switch back to your primary weapon and use Rage(shoulb be at least lvl. 2 by now) if they try to freeze you. After you kill all of them go up the stairs on the upper right hand corner and kill all of them, you can either kill the archers with Fury but I prefer to walk across the beam and kill them myself. Pull on the lever then get the chest and go down the rope. Kill enemies as you make your way across the rope, use the chests if you need it and go up the stairs and get the shield. Once you remove the shield, you can't leave until you kill all the enemies and the is a spiky wall coming to cruch you, just kil all of them and the wall will retract. Use Blade and Rage to make it go faster. After the red wall disperse use the chest and go back across the rope and up. Go in the room at the right and kill the Gorgons and archers and back inthe hallway, drag the block to the steps near the fireplace/door. Kick the block so it goes on the button and quickly run to the wall and it'll spin you around. Kill all the guys and open the chest, go up the ladder and jump across the gap and get the second shield. Walk around on the beams because there are more chest. After you get all the chests, open the door using the two shields. In the next area are saws going back and forth so avoid them and go through the door on the right, bust the wall and kill the enemies.

Start climbing the wall, kill the enemies on the way until you come on a ledge with a lever, pull and jump on the chain rope and go up, at the top are two red chests. Go back down and into the room where the lever is, a bunch of enemies come at you and some of them have shields, SST, and Gorgons, you know what to do. After get the handle and head back to the chainsaw room. Pull on the lever at the bottom right first then the one at the upper left, move quickly though because they're not gonna stay open for long. Go along the right wall and open the door, kill the enemies inthis room and put the handle on the stick in front of the statue and rotate it until the statue stops moving. Go behind the statue to get a Muse Key. Now go out and to the hall on the right and up the stairs. kill the enemies on the way. Get all the chests up here, there are 4. Pull on the lever in the middle and after go out the door and remove the lid and pull the head off. Go down and forward till you get a cutscene and out the door into the SR again and save. Head out and kill the enemies on the way, go until you come to the skull and put the head in. Go through the door and back and wait for the thing to pass and run the opposite direction and up the stairs. Wait for it to come by and jump on it, just twalk or jump the other way and avoid falling off, keep to the right of it and when you come to the stairs jump on it. Climb up until the stairs fall down and climb all the way up, use the chests, and save. Go forward and a cutscene appears and you have to fight Ceberus and a bunch of little puppies, these are your average strong annoying enemies, just block, roll and attack. Go forward after you done and kill the cyclops and use the chest behind the big block. Leave the block alone, its useless, when the archers start shooting at you roll forward until you get to them and use Rage. Keep going till you get to where the mini-ceberuses and archers are and kill them all to open the door. In the room pull the lever, as it spins you can get the chests but if you do it too slow you die so when it opens, open the chest real-fast and roll back, don't run, do this for all of them and you should be fine. Outside you have to fight guys with Grim Reaper's Scythe. Just kill the and climb the wall, when you get to the top go right and get the second Muse Key and then go left, kill the minotaurs and keep going. In the hall go forward and you'll see a stick with no handle, jump down and go to the room all the way at the end and get the lever and put it back on the stick. Once you lower the cage down you have to get it to the room, once on the slope put it on top of the gravel to prevent it from sliding down. Every time you move the cage up an enemy come out, the first couple shouldn't be too hard because you only have to kill one enemy, when you get near the room 3 or 4 of them are on you go use Rage(should be lvl. 3 by now) nad kill them all and quickly move the cage into the room. Put it on the button and pull on the lever. After the door opens, go outside and kill those guys and use the chest to get your magic and health back. In the next room get Poseidon's Trident and save. Swim on the left side and go up the stairs to get a chest. Then go on the right and dive into the hole. Use R1 to swim dash and break the walls, when you surface, take out the Blade and whoop ass.

Keep swimming until to come to a Nyad and press circle to kiss it, some of the Nyads give you stuff. Go down and you come to a fork and a cracked wall in front with a painting, break through it and kiss the second Nyad. Go right at the fork and you'll come to a mouth, here you'll keep having to dash forward until you come to the other side, totally easy. You'll come up on land and kill the enemies, after they're all dead, pull the lever and head back to the fork, go take the left path, kill alll the enemies and get all the stuff here and go back to where the wall was that went up. At the save point break the wall on the left and kiss the Nyad, swim up through the whole and get the red orbs. Go back past the save point to the Poseidon statue, on his left side is a cracked wall, break through it and kiss the last Nyad. Down the hole are barricades moving forward, just wait until it passes and go down and dash forward. Go down the gap and wait for one to pass and go up fast and dash forward 2 times. Go down the next gap and go up and dash forward again and go down the hole. In the room beat the minotaurs and pull the lever, go up and kill the enemies and open the chests. Go back to the lever and pull it again, swim underwater on the left side of the poles and the last one has a room in it go in and wait for it to go down, keep swiming and you'll come back to the SR. Save and go back to the place with the stairs surrounded by water, dive into the hole and keep going til you're in a room with a huge door and a lever.

There are two blue circles and you'll have to kill four centaurs in each to open the door, each kill lights up one of the four flames (suggest you use Blade). Go up to the oopened door and there is a ledge above, jump up there and break the wall and get the chest. Go through the door and jump on the ledge to the upper left and open the chests. In the next room you'll have to jump across the splitting ground and not fall in the water. Just run and jump as it's starting to split apart to avoid it opening when you land. The next one the grong splits apart three wucik times and stay together for a second or two. Run and jump on the second opening ion the second turn and you should be fine. When you make it go forward and a gate will come down, there is an upper and lower level in this maze, you have to kill everyone before you can leave. Kill everyone at this level and turn the lever and go up. Kill the guy that is here and push the block near the elevator, wait for the first part to close and run forward, when the ground is about to split double jump forward and open the chest, just go around the upper level killing everyone, kill everyone before you go to the place with a block going back and forth, once you go everywhere and kill everyone, wait for the block to go back and run out and jump on it, stay near the upper part of the block and wait for it to go all the way back and jump in the room to the right, and kill the two guys.

When you come to a room there are two really big-heavy armored minotaurs, these are the last stage of them in the game, they can take a lot of punishment which is what you're going to need to deal out. Kill them and the archers and go up the stairs and kill the enemies here and open the chest. Go back down the stairs and through the other opening. Go across the rope and kill alll the enemies here, suggest you use Rage when there's a lot of them. When you're done go up the ladder.

Go back down and get Hades Army(Army), kill all the enemies before you can leave, use Army if you want, you should be able to get it to lvl. 2 as soon as you get it. After they're all dead go through the door Hades appeared and into the water. When you come out of the hole put the head in the door and the water will go down, open the door on the wall. The point of all this is to get the light in the SR and shine into the room you just opened. If you haven't done this yet, go to the biggest room, and rotate it til you get to the door with the two missing Muses. Open the door and get al the stuff, jump on the sand and press R2 and get all the power, doing this is the only way to get max health and magic.

I forgot all about this place so I don't know where to go so you'll have to explore. To get out of this area you have to get two necklaces. If you're in a room filled with holes on the ground, pull on the lever and pull the block out just enough so you can get behind it and kick it left, you have to kick it in the hallway so you can get on it and double jump on the ledge before time runs out and you die. If you're in a place where you have to fight a bunch of guys and a couple of minotaurs after you came down from the rope then kill all the guys and in the next room you'll have to get all the blocks up against the wall to fit so the wall will come down and you can get the necklace. Finally after you get both the necklaces, you'll come to a place with two heads that you can put the necklaces on, bfore you go, on the right side of this place is a cave that leads to chests. When the steps go 2/3 of the way out run forward and jump to the next step. Once you make it across, cutscene, after kill all the enemies and swing on the ropes to the other side. When you get to a save point, svae. There is a button there but forget about it for now and go across the chasm, avoiding the blades. Pull the statue at the upper left to the cracked hole on the right and leave it there, open the door on the upper right and go in, kill the enemies and continue up the stairs. Kill the cyclops and the mini-ceberuses. Climd up the upp left ladder and bust the door and get the chests.

Go down and push the statue into the hole and put it on top of another button. Go back across the chasm and step on the button and you'll have to jump back across and enter the room before it closes. Once in the room pull off the head and proceed after the door open, keep going til you come to a room with conveyor belts. Enemies will attack but stay on the moving belt and jump and attack, don't ever go on solid ground or you'll get killed. Start out by using Army and attack, use another Army and Rage after, after the red door disappears, go through it and open the case of Pandora's Box. After the elevator stops, drag the Box towards the dor and cutscene time. Hell The path is pretty straight forward so so everywhere to get chests because there's lots of them, when you're going up a spinning block with a bunch of blades attached take your time cause rushing amkes it worse. Athens Once you go up the rope, save use the chests and go inside, when enemies start appearing use Army once and fight the rest, when the red doors disappears, go up the stairs and use Army again, go across the beam and kill the achers and use the chest and make your way down the hall killin on the way. Ares There are three parts to this fight. Part one: You fight him normally with your Blades of Chaos and all your magic. Start out with Amry and hit him while Army is in effect. After Army disappears go in ROTG mode and use Army again and just the the shit out of him with Blades of Chaos. Part two: You have to protect your family. Use Army and after it disappears Go into ROTG mode and use it again and kill as much of the clones as you can while you're in this mode. When the ROTG meter is almost gone use Army again and switch to Blade and kill the rest, once the clones in the back throwing lightning at your family appears, use Army again. Part three: You and Ares have a blood meter, each hit adds health to you and takes away from Ares and vice-versa. You can block everything accept the four rocks attack, just roll out the way when they come up. After he dies, go into the protal and save. Destroy the two statues with L1+Circle to get Secret Message 2. Take your throne and watch the ending. Congratulations! You beat the game. You should try it again on a harder difficulty to really see how hard it is, I did.
