    About me: 
    =-=-=-=-=
    
    Hello, everyone. My name is David DeGregorio. I have recently
    decided to start writing FAQ's for my favorite games, starting
    with my last FAQ on Shadow of the Colossus. Because God of War
    is an amazing game, I decided to write a FAQ on that next. So,
    here it is.
    
    I have done my best to make sure there are no errors in the FAQ.
    If you find any, let me know and I will do my best to update the
    guide. Also, if you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc.
    just email me and I will try to email back as soon as I can.
    
    Follow me on twitter for info on upcoming strategy guides
    and guide updates.
    
    =-=-=-=-=
    Spoilers:
    =-=-=-=-=
    
    As usual, I will refrain from using spoilers in this guide. I don't
    believe in spoilers. They ruin the story for you, the gamer, and take
    away from the experience. So, yeah, no spoilers will be included in any 
    of my guides. If you see something that looks like a spoiler, please 
    let me know and I will edit that part or take it out completely. Thank 
    you.

    Getting started:
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    First of all, you will need a copy of God Of War. Buy it, rent it, or 
    borrow it from a friend if you must, however you will need the game to 
    use this guide.
    
    Pop the disc into your system and you're ready to play. You are in 
    control of Kratos: the most badass person to ever exist in a video 
    game. Throughout the entire game, you will beast on your foes with the 
    blades of chaos which are blades chained to your wrists. Unleash your 
    fury on all in your path.

         Blades Of Chaos:
         =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    The blades of chaos will be your main weapons throughout the game.
    They are quick, powerful, and very stylish. Every time you upgrade
    the blades, they will get stronger and you will get fancy new attacks.

    The only other weapon you receive in the game is the blade of
    Artemis. It is powerful but quite useless. It takes way too long
    to level up and is way too slow.

    Magic:
    =-=-=-
    
         =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
         Poseidon's Rage:
         =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    This is the first spell you get in the game and one of the best.
    It is basically a large blast of energy that surrounds you and
    decimates your foes. I would upgrade this spell whenever possible.
    
    Level      Red Orbs Needed   Upgrades
    --------   ---------------   --------
    Level 2:              1650   Bigger Damage Area, More Power,
                                 Spin Attack
    Level 3:              4500   Bigger Damage Area, More Power
    
         =-=-=-=-=-=-=-
         Medusa's Gaze:
         =-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    This second spell turns your enemies to stone for a short time.
    It isn't very useful in combat because it takes a lot of magic
    to use and takes a while for the spell to take effect. Also, it
    leaves you vulnerable to enemy attack. I wouldn't upgrade this
    spell because it is mainly used in puzzles.
    
    Level      Red Orbs Needed   Upgrades
    --------   ---------------   --------
    Level 2:              3000   Stronger Freeze Beam, Gorgon Flash
    Level 3:              7500   Stronger Freeze Beam, Gorgon Rage
    
         =-=-=-=-=-=
         Zeus' Fury:
         =-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This third spell gives you control of Zeus' thunderbolts. It is
    basically a ranged attack that homes in on one enemy. You won't
    use this spell that often but it is very helpful when dealing
    with archers.
    
    Level      Red Orbs Needed   Upgrades
    --------   ---------------   --------
    Level 2:               750   Stronger Attack, Charge Attack,
                                 Faster Bolts
    Level 3:              3500   Stronger Attack, Super Charge Attack.
    
         =-=-=-=-=-=-=-
         Army Of Hades:
         =-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    This is the last spell you receive and it is the best by far.
    With this spell, the souls of the dead will rise up from the
    underworld and float around, devastating your enemies.
    
    Level      Red Orbs Needed   Upgrades
    --------   ---------------   --------

       Aegean Sea:
       =-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This is where the game officially begins. After the opening scene, you 
    are thrust onto a ship that is being attacked by the undead. This is 
    essentially a tutorial to get you acquainted with the controls.
    
    The enemies aren't too hard here. They can be easily killed with square 
    and triangle attacks. I would recommend trying different combinations 
    to get used to the attack system. There are numerous ways to assault a 
    dude, so just attack and figure them out.
    
    After you defeat a few enemies, more will break out of a trapdoor from 
    inside the ship. Kill all the enemies. Notice that there is a glowing 
    white sphere on the handle of the trapdoor. This means you can open it.
    Go in front of the trapdoor and rapidly press R2 to open it. Jump inside
    the ship.
    
    There is a chest that you can open here by holding R2.
    
    A little side-note about chests: There are a few different types.
    The blue chests contain magic, red contain blood orbs (used to
    upgrade weapons and magic), and green contain health orbs.
    There are also chests that change color where you can pick
    what you want to get. The last type of chest doesn't have a color.
    These contain either a Gorgon's eye (increases overall health after
    you collect six of them) or a phoenix feather (increases magic after
    you collect six).
    
    Open the chest and use your blades to destroy the barrels and debris in 
    the room to get red orbs. Head to the right of the chest and continue 
    further into the ship.
    
    Destroy the blockade of wood and follow the linear path until *BAM* a 
    hydra breaks into the ship. Time to fight a mini-boss.
    
    This really isn't that hard. It'll attempt to kill you by biting at you 
    but it doesn't really matter if you get hit. Just keep slashing with 
    square or triangle attacks and, every so often, red and green orbs will 
    come out. Your health is constantly replenishing so just keep slashing.
    
    When half of the creature's health is gone, the beast will go limp and 
    a circle will appear over its head. Press circle to initiate a button 
    pressing mini-game (originated by God of War) and press the 
    corresponding buttons (it changes each time) to decimate the hydra and 
    force it to leave.
    
    Carefully walk across the beams. If you trip, press x to pull yourself 
    back up.
    
    Destroy the barrels in front of you and head left out of the ship. The 
    camera will switch angles on you. Walk forward and head right into the 
    next ship. Open the chest for red orbs. You can go into the start menu 
    and place some orbs into your sword if you want.
    
    Turn left and continue down the path. Destroy the next blockade and 
    open the door. You will emerge on the deck of the ship and things 
    aren't going well for the crew.
    
    There are a bunch of bat-like creatures assaulting the civilians and 
    you must destroy them. They aren't tough and drop plenty of orbs. The 
    people will get in the way but it doesn't matter if you kill them too. 
    They don't drop orbs, though. Such a shame.
    
    Once you have purged the ship of the bats, head to the right of the 
    ship. There are two doors you can open for chests that are full of red 
    orbs.
    
    Head back to your left. As you walk, a hydra will break through the 
    middle of the ship and stick out its head. It's time to fight another 
    easy mini-boss.
    
    This boss has two main attacks. It will bite at you which doesn't do 
    much damage. Next, it will roar and then swing its neck around which
    will hurt you. You can avoid both of these attacks by rolling out of
    the way (right analog stick).
    
    Also, try not to stand directly in front of the hydra because it will
    snatch you up in its mouth and try to eat you. If this happens, rapidly
    press circle and you will break free and do massive damage to the
    creature. It's stunned at this point, so attack as much as you can.
    
    This hydra shouldn't give you too much trouble. Just avoid its attacks
    and slash away and soon it will drop like a sack of bricks.
    
    After the fight, jump into the hole the hydra made in the ship and swim
    to your right, through the small opening.
    
    Climb the net at the other end and you will be on the deck of another 
    ship. Kill the enemies and take a short breather. You will see a hydra 
    in the background but there's nothing you can do about it now.
    
    Walk along the fallen mast until you reach an intersection. Head right 
    to reach a chest full of red orbs. Go back to the fork and take the left
    path. At the end of the beam is another ship.
    
    Go forward and you will see a cut scene that is both disturbing and 
    awesome. Open the chest and save your game at the giant glowing pillar 
    of light.
    
    This next part can get kind of annoying. You see a bunch of undead 
    archers on the other side of the ship. You need to kill them but you 
    can't jump high enough to grab the ledge that they're on.
    
    Here's what needs to be done. There is a small box at the bottom right 
    hand corner. You need to kick this to the ledge where the archers are. 
    This is made annoying by the fact that the archers can destroy the box 
    in four hits, while Kratos shrugs off any damage taken.
    
    Take your time with this. Kick the box before the arrows hit it, so 
    that it just passes underneath and you should be fine. After a few 
    tries, you should be able to take sweet revenge on the archers.
    
    Open the chest for green orbs and continue to the next area.
    
    At the end of the hallway is a door. It is locked right now but this is 
    where you need to go later, once you have the key. Behind you, on the 
    side of the building, is a ladder. Climb it and start climbing the net 
    attached to the mast of the ship.
    
    Enemies will try to ambush you and knock you off. To attack them, aim 
    the left analog stick in the direction of the enemy and press either 
    square or triangle. The only difference is that square is a direct 
    attack while triangle is a sweeping attack. You can also press the 
    analog stick and circle to pull enemies off the net for an instant 
    kill. Kill the enemies and climb to the top of the net.
    
    At the top, climb the next net. Kill the enemies. In front of you, you 
    should see a rope going from the mast to another ship. Jump up and you 
    automatically grab it and slide down.
    
    Break open the barricades on the right and left to get a Gorgon's eye 
    and more red orbs. Now go through the center door.
    
    In this room, you will see a glowing blue symbol. Walk forward into it 
    and you will receive your first spell, Poseidon's Rage. Select it by 
    pressing right on the d-pad. The symbol should appear on the HUD in the 
    top left corner of the screen.
    
    Kill the enemies that appear, using the new spell if you wish. It is a 
    fun and useful spell that can increase your combo multiplier a great 
    deal.
    
    Head down the hallway and save at the save point.
    
    Replenish your health and magic using the chests and climb the net. A 
    scene will kick in. It's time for a real boss battle!
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   The hydra
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is the first real boss battle and it is quite fun. You have two 
    small hydra to contend with and one huge one. The big hydra keeps 
    healing the others, yet you can't reach the big one because he keeps 
    blasting you off of the net. There is a trick to this battle, so pay 
    attention. Fend off the small hydra for a bit. The small hydra function 
    the same as the last mini-boss. They either bite you or do their neck 
    attack. They still emit green orbs.
    
    Attack the first one a bit and a blast of air will sweep you to the
    next hydra. Keep fighting. Poseidon's Rage helps greatly. After a
    while of back and forth between the two, you will knock out one of
    the hydra. This is where you must forget about the other hydra.
    Otherwise the one you took out will come back to life. Now, on either
    side of the ship there are stacks of boxes. Find the stack of boxes
    near the hydra that you knocked out. Jump onto the lowest box and
    climb the stack until you reach the top. There is a platform hanging
    nearby that you can jump on. Do this and your weight will cause the
    platform to descend and impale the hydra. It's still alive but it can't
    move because it is pinned beneath the platform. Now, turn to the other
    hydra. Knock it out and climb the boxes. Impale it by jumping on the
    next platform. Now, climb the net and get ready to face the real boss.
    
    This guy is quite similar to the smaller versions. It has two attacks.
    The first one is a bite attack again but this is actually easier to
    dodge because it is slower than the smaller versions. Also, it doesn't
    do any real damage because it's a very inaccurate attack. The next
    attack isn't really an attack at all. Basically, the hydra roars and
    tries to push you off the ledge. All this does is make you climb back
    up again. Also, if you stand in the middle of the platform, Kratos
    automatically grabs the ledge instead of falling.
    
    Attack the boss and you will see that it emits green and blue orbs
    frequently. Use Poseidon's Rage frequently and attack it until it is
    stunned and a green circle appears overhead. Press circle to initiate
    the mini-game. Rapidly press circle to knock the hydra's head into the
    mast. The mast is then cracked. You have to repeat this pattern twice
    more: attacking the boss and knocking it into the mast. Some people
    have a problem pressing circle. If you have trouble, try switching from
    your thumb to a finger which can mover faster. Or you could ask a
    friend to help. Anyway, after you do this the mast is broken off and
    you must take down the hydra's health down to about twenty-five percent.
    The boss is then stunned again. Press circle to start the final
    mini-game, where you press one random button, then rapidly press circle
    to impale the beast. The boss is now dead. Congratulations!
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now we have to find the key to that door. If you paid attention during 
    the cut scene, you might've noticed that the guy that was eaten by the 
    big hydra had a key. Yup, you've guessed it. You have to walk into the 
    hydra's mouth and take it from him. Watch the funny scene that ensues.
    
    Head back out and climb the boxes on the right side. Jump to the net, 
    climb up, and open the chests for health and another Gorgon's eye. 
    Slide down the rope behind you. Now you are back to where the archers 
    annoyed you. Trek to the locked door, killing more archers as you go, 
    and open it.
    
    Run down the hallway, descend the stairs, and open the next door. Watch 
    the amazing scene (the graphical work is quite impressive) and you will 
    see why this game is rated M. (It's not because of the violence.)

       The Gates Of Athens:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    When you regain control, you will notice two women in the bed and an R2 
    symbol when you get near them. If you want, jump onto the bed and press 
    circle to initiate a little mini-game with the ladies. ^^ In addition 
    to having fun, you will gain a ton of red orbs. You can do this again 
    but you won't get any more orbs.
    
    Now it's time to move on. Head down the hall, save your game, and 
    continue down the next hallway. Open the chests for green and blue 
    orbs. Climb the ladder to exit the ship, then speak to the statue.
    Cross the bridge and set foot on dry land. Kill the undead warriors.
    They still aren't a challenge. They do have armor though, so you
    can't grab them until the circle appears over their heads.
    
    Break any objects you see as they could contain orbs which are very 
    helpful. Continue forward and turn left, crossing the stone bridge.
    
    Turn right, onto the wooden path. To your right is a hole in the wall. 
    Swim over to the stone structure and jump back onto land. Go inside the 
    door, kill the enemies, and open the chests for a phoenix feather and 
    green orbs.
    
    Return to the wooden pathway and this time jump forward, over the 
    water, to the lever. Pull it and you will ascend to a higher level. 
    Walk down the path until you see a scene.
    
    After the scene you will see a new type of enemy, the Minotaur. These 
    are tough enemies. Individually they aren't too bad but you have to 
    face two off the bat. There is a treasure chest with green orbs on the 
    path if you need it.
    
    Take down these creatures. Poseidon's Rage is helpful here. Also, try
    using the square, square, circle combo to knock them down. When the
    circle command becomes visible, press circle to engage a new mini-game. 
    Rapidly press circle to impale them through the mouth. The chest at the 
    other end of the walkway has blue orbs. Ascend to the next level via 
    the elevator.
    
    When you reach the top you will meet a new creature. It is big and slow 
    but it has a nasty ranged attack. It has a spiked ball attached to its
    arm that it can shoot at you for some damage. Roll to avoid this and
    attack when the creature is vulnerable. When the circle command
    appears,you can press it for another satisfying kill mini-game.
    
    You should have enough orbs to power up your blades to level two at 
    this point. If you need it, there is a chest at the far end that cycles 
    between blue and green orbs.
    
    Once you kill the first hulking creature, another appears. Kill this 
    and a third one appears. Kill the third one and the shield disappears
    on the door. Ignore the door for now and head to the upper right corner
    of the area to find a chest filled with red orbs. Return to the door
    and go through it.
    
    Go down the hallway and you will be in a room with stacks of boxes. Two 
    of the boxes (the one on bottom of the stack in the center and the one 
    on bottom of the stack to the northwest) are a different color. This 
    means you can break them. Do so and you can go forward.
    
    Go to the box at the southwest end of the room. There is only one box 
    on this stack so you can climb up. Look diagonally right and you will 
    see another stack (the stack in the center). Jump over to this stack.
    
    Jump onto the stack to the right and there will be a hole in the wall.
    Inside this hole are two chests. One has a Gorgon's eye and the other
    has magic.
    
    Jump back to the stack of boxes and then jump to the stack to your
    left that has a chest and a ladder on it. The chest has red orbs
    inside. Climb the ladder and make your way left to the next stack
    of boxes.
    
    Jump to the next stack. (The one with the net on it.) Jump left again 
    to the next stack. To your left is another stack with a chest. The 
    chest has red orbs. Open it, and then head right into the next room. 
    Step into the glowing symbol and you will get your next spell, Medusa's
    gaze. You're going to have to earn it, though.
    
    A new enemy will appear: a gorgon. The only real difficulty is that
    she can turn you into stone. If you get turned into stone, quickly
    move the left analog stick left and right before she can hit you.
    If she hits you while you are stone, then you are dead.
    
    To avoid behind turned to stone, either keep rolling to dodge the
    gaze or use Poseidon's rage whenever she uses her gaze upon you.
    Keep hitting her until the circle appears above her head and then
    play the mini-game to rip off her head.
    
    When she's dead you get Medusa’s gaze. More enemies will spawn right 
    after. Use Medusa’s gaze to kill them. Just hold L2 and press square to 
    use it. Aim with the left analog stick.
    
    Head through the door. Head down the hallway and kill the enemies. 
    Climb the ladder and save your game.
    
    Go back to the top of the ladder. There is a lever here. Pull it and 
    the crossbow will turn around. Go to the crossbow and hold R2. While 
    holding R2, pill back the left analog stick. When the crossbow's 
    cocked, pull the left analog stick forward to shoot down the door.
    
    Save your game again and head forward. Turn left down the hallway and 
    descend the ladder. Kill the enemies and open the chest for a Gorgon's 
    eye. Open the gate to open a shortcut from the previous part of the 
    level.
    
    Head back down the hallway and up the ladder. Turn right, head down the 
    hallway, and climb the next ladder. Kill all the enemies and turn
    around. The wall to the left of the door is black which means you
    can climb it.
    
    Climb the wall to the top, then head right, killing enemies as you go,
    and jumping the gaps. When you can't go right any more, head down
    until you reach solid ground. Kill more enemies and rapidly press
    R2 to knock over the statue. Use the ladder to climb down to the
    previous area.
    
    Head to where you broke off the statue's head. Jump on top of it and 
    climb the ladder. Kill the Medusa, open the chest for green orbs, and 
    climb the next ladder.
    
    Kill the Minotaur and the Medusa. Once they're dead, destroy the 
    pillars to your left to make platforms to get to the next level. Kill 
    the enemies up here and then shoot the crossbow.
    
    This will shoot a rope across to another room. Double jump to grab it 
    and start to climb across. Enemies will try to attack you, so stop 
    climbing and use square, triangle, or circle to kill them. Then 
    continue across.
    
    When you reach the other side, climb down the ladder, and open the 
    chest for green orbs.
    
    Turn around, head to the bottom of the room, and head left. There is a 
    door here. It should look familiar because it's the other side of the 
    door near the first crossbow.
    
    Open it and head back to the first crossbow. Shoot this one again to 
    open the third door. Behind this door there's a couple of Minotaur. 
    Kill them.
    
    Go forward and jump onto the new ladder. Climb it to reach a chest with 
    red orbs and another with some health. Descend the ladder and continue 
    through the hallway. Turn right and head forward for a scene.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       The Road To Athens:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Head forward and ascend the stairs for another scene. Save your game at 
    the save point on the right.
    
    Head down the path to the left. The route in front of you will be 
    blocked by debris, so turn left and into an archway. The gate closes 
    behind you.
    
    This part isn't too hard but it takes patience. First of all, kill one 
    of the Minotaur. This makes it much easier. Now, make sure your magic 
    is full. If it isn't, there's a chest with blue orbs in the right side 
    of the room.
    
    Now, lure the remaining Minotaur onto the button and freeze it with 
    Medusa's gaze. Immediately run forward and roll twice to get through 
    the open gate in time. Open the chest for green orbs. Head right and 
    enter the city.
    
    Take the time to kill all the monsters in the area. This will help when 
    you return through the city. Once everything is dead, enter every
    single house by breaking down the door. Almost every house has a chest
    with red orbs. Two of the chests have phoenix feathers and two contain
    Gorgon's eyes. Don't miss the chest on the second floor of the house
    where one of the archers was stationed and the chest on top of the
    small house on the right side of the street.
    
    Once you have all the goodies, break the blockade at the end of the 
    street, and jump to the rope. Hold circle to swing back and forth and
    gain momentum. Jump to the second rope and climb to the top to find an
    alcove. Jump to the alcove and open the chest for some red orbs. Jump
    back to the rope and slide down to the bottom. Swing over to the next
    section of road and walk down the path.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       Athens Town Square:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Run up the stairs and enter the town square. There are tons of people 
    running around and there is a Cyclops smashing everything. The exits 
    are sealed off so you must kill the enemy first. The good thing is that 
    the people give off health orbs once killed, so don't worry about 
    health. Dodge its attacks with the right analog stick and attack as
    much as you can.
    
    Kill the first Cyclops and a second will appear. A third one will run 
    in as well. Kill both of them and a door will open. Head into the door
    on left side of the square.
    
    Walk down the hallway and you will enter a room with golden floors. In
    this room there are murals painted on the wall. Two of these murals are
    cracked. Find these murals and attack them to reveal hidden chests. One
    contains a Gorgon's eye and the other has blue or green orbs.
    
    Ascend the stairs and you will emerge on a parapet. Open the chest for 
    green orbs. Head right and break down the door to find another room
    with murals. One of them is cracked, so break it down to find a chest
    with red orbs.
    
    Head back to where you broke the door and jump over to the hall the 
    woman ran down. Watch the scene and climb up the stairs. The woman will 
    fall to her death. Save your game.
    
    To your left is a chest with a phoenix feather. Jump down and take the 
    key from the woman. Head through the door on the left side of the area
    and walk down the hall. Back in the room with golden floors, you will
    see some new enemies. These have yellow shields. You can break them
    with a combo of square, square, triangle. Continue down the path,
    killing enemies as you go, until you return to the parapet where the
    lady fell.
    
    Head to the right and double jump to the ledge. Head forward and unlock
    the trapdoor. Open it and jump down. Save your game here.
    
    Continue down the hallway and go left at the fork. Open up the gate and
    run up the stairs.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       Rooftops Of Athens:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Head forward and you'll see a vine you can climb up. Head to the top 
    and double jump over to the next vine. Climb to the top, double jump to 
    the next vine, climb to the top, and double jump to the parapet where 
    two chests are located.
    
    Open the chests for magic and health. Go into the room. Here you will 
    meet a new enemy type. They like to strike at you from underground. 
    Dodge or block their attacks and slash away at them. If they start
    getting annoying, use Poseidon's Rage or Rage of the Gods if you
    have it.
    
    Kill all of the enemies in the area and then head up the stairs,
    killing the archers as you go. At the top are more of those new
    enemies as well as that hulking enemy type from before. I would
    recommend Poseidon's Rage or Rage Of The Gods if you didn't use
    it before.
    
    Once your enemies are dead, the way forward will open, so head back 
    down the stairs and into the city.
    
    Head south (towards the screen) and you will reach a chest full of red 
    orbs. Go north now. The bridge is destroyed, so jump forward onto the 
    platform. You will see vines on a pillar below you. Jump there and 
    climb down to the left. Jump across to a ledge with a red orb chest.
    
    Grab the orbs and break down the wooden door. Walk down the path and
    kill all of the enemies before you. Now you won't have to worry about
    those pesky archers later. Return to the the red orb chest and jump
    back to the vines. Climb over to the right and double jump to the next
    pillar.
    
    Climb to the right again and double jump to the other side of the
    bridge. Open up the chest for some red orbs. Run forward, open the
    green orb chest, and save at the save point in the next room.
    
    Go through the gap in the wall and climb the ladder. Kill the enemies. 
    Head over to the right side of the rooftop to find another ladder.
    Climb it for a Gorgon's eye and a color-changing chest. Climb back
    down the ladder and walk over to the left side of the rooftop.
    Double jump over to the next rooftop. 
    
    There's another color-changing chest here. To your left is a treasure 
    trove of chests however I don't recommend going there yet. There are 
    archers there who will shoot you before you can open it. Also, on your 
    way over are two ropes you must swing from. The archers will shoot you 
    off of these.
    
    Instead, break the wooden object in front of you and jump to the next 
    rooftop. Kill the two Minotaur, break the next barrier and double jump
    to the next building. Open the chest for blue orbs and head up the
    ramp to your right.
    
    Press R2 near the shiny object for a quick scene. You can't go any 
    further this way, so head south and press R2 to lower the wooden 
    bridge.
    
    Climb back down the ladder and kill the enemies that spawn here. Save 
    your game and head left out the door. To the left is a burning bridge. 
    Cross it and go left.
    
    You will see a giant object that looks like a mobile crossbow. Push it 
    down the hallway and into the next room. 
    
    Open up the doors on the right for some pots you can smash and a health 
    chest. The doors on the left contain more pots and a room filled with
    enemies. Kill all of the enemies.
    
    Inside the room where the enemies spawned is a lever. Directly below
    the entrance to this room, a circular gear is etched in the floor.
    Drag the crossbow onto the circular gear. Now pull the lever. The
    crossbow is now facing a different direction but not the one you want.
    
    Drag the crossbow off of the gear and pull the lever to reset the
    system. Drag the crossbow back onto the gear and pull the lever to
    have it face the right direction. Use the crossbow to take out the
    door.
    
    Go through the door and continue down the hallway. At the end is a 
    chest with blue orbs and another glowing symbol. It is time to get a
    new spell. You will receive Zeus's Fury.
    
    This spell is essentially a thunderbolt that you can use to target
    foes from far away. Now you can destroy pesky archers before they
    attack you.
    
    Head through the door and you will emerge outside in the same place
    where you found the crossbow. Go to the middle of the burning bridge
    and take out the archers with your new spell. A new door will open.
    Go forward and turn right at the intersection. Go through the new door.
    
    In this room, smash the pots for red orbs and smash the north wall for 
    a Gorgon's eye, a Phoenix feather, and a blue orb chest.
    
    Exit the room, head back across the bridge, and go to the save point. 
    Make sure to save your game.
    
    Climb the ladder again. Double jump to the next rooftop and head left 
    this time. Cross the ropes and take out the archers with your 
    thunderbolts. Now you can open up the chests for mad red orbs and some 
    magic and health.
    
    Return to the roof where the guy refused to let you pass. This time, 
    instead of arguing with him, melt his face with a thunderbolt. It's not 
    the monsters he should fear. The bridge will rise.
    
    Cross the bridge and smash more pots for red orbs. Head into the next 
    room. Smash the pots for orbs and open the chests for a Gorgon's eye
    and a Phoenix Feather.
    
    Continue down the hallway, killing two waves of those annoying 
    underground attackers, and open the chests in the next room for more 
    red orbs. Step on the circle to descend to a lower level. Head through 
    the hallway and go forward for a scene.
    
    Cross the beam and save your game. Head up the stairs and kill the 
    enemies at the top. On the right side of the path, there is a cracked 
    wall you can break for a red orb chest.
    
    Head up the next flight of stairs. Open the chests to replenish health 
    and magic.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       Temple Of The Oracle:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Cross the bridge in front of you for a scene. Kill the harpies and the 
    Medusa. A scene will take place. When the old man is done talking, 
    ascend the stairs and save your game. Open the chests on either side of 
    the doorway for a Phoenix feather and a Gorgon's eye.
    
    Ascend the stairs and enter the next room. The swarm of harpies here is 
    endless so you need to plug the holes that they're coming through.
    Head forward, killing off harpies, and climb the stairs. At the far end
    of the room there are two statues. You need to use these to plug the
    holes. The harpies will make this difficult but they don't hurt that
    much. Bring the left statue to the left hole and the harpies will
    diminish. Bring the right statue to the right hole and plug it up.
    Kill the remaining vermin and you're done with that.
    
    Behind the statues are chests with blue and green orbs. On the other 
    end of the room are chests with a Gorgon's eye and red orbs. (These are 
    on top of altars on either side of the entrance to this room)
    
    Open the door next to the blue orb chest (to the left of the door you 
    came in) and ascend the stairs. At the top, navigate your way across 
    the beams. Certain beams will fall as you go (there is a linear path 
    you must cross and the others beams fall before you can reach them).
    
    Note: When Kratos is walking the beams, on the far left, there is a 
    ledge he will pass. Jump onto the ledge and break the decorative glass. 
    Behind this is a chest containing a Gorgon eye. Thanks to Jason Ward 
    for this great find.
    
    Save your game once you reach the other side. Get health at the chest 
    if you wish, then continue down the hallway.
    
    Kill the enemies as you walk down the hallway. They are very easy (they 
    don't even have armor). At the end of the hall another scene will take 
    place. Now we have to save the oracle.
    
    First, however, take the elevator down (the thing with the circle on 
    it) and ignore her pleading. Break the two cracked walls for a Gorgon's 
    eye and red orbs. Jump on top of the building for more red orbs.
    
    Now to actually save her. Go back to the second level and go to the 
    door you first came in. There are statues here. Pull one out and place 
    it on the elevator. (Make sure it is as close as you can get it to the 
    line between the elevator and the floor.
    
    Go back and get the second statue. Pull it so that it is directly 
    behind the first statue (not on the elevator but on the floor).
    
    Stand on the elevator and jump back to the second floor before it goes 
    down. Push the second pillar on top of the first. Now we can move 
    forward.
    
    Push the pillar in between the rock face on the right and the gazebo on 
    the left. Jump to where the chest is then turn and jump on the gazebo. 
    Double jump onto the pillar you made and double jump to the path on the 
    rock face to get two chests with red orbs.
    
    Move the pillar to the other side (between the vine-covered wall and 
    the gazebo) Jump on the gazebo and double jump to the pillar. Jump to 
    the ledge and climb the vines to the left.
    
    A scene will kick in at this point and you will be timed. The first 
    part isn't that hard. Wait for the spinning wheels to stop and then 
    jump to the next vine section. At the end of this, run to the next wall 
    covered in vines.
    
    Climb the vines, jump to the next section, and then climb again. Double 
    jump to the rope on your left and swing to the other side. Turn left 
    and balance across to the next part of the path. Double jump to the 
    rope and swing across to the platform on the statue. Get close to the 
    oracle and a scene will kick in. You save her and learn a bit about 
    Kratos' past. The oracle will open the door, so go through and 
    continue.
    
    At the end of the path is a save point. Go up the left path (the long 
    one that winds through the cliffs) and you can see the point where 
    Kratos leaps from in the opening scene. To the right of the strange 
    building is a chest with a Phoenix feather. Head back down and save 
    your game.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       Sewers Of Athens:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Head down the path to the right and across the bridge. Say, that bridge 
    kind of looks like a sword. Descend the spiral staircase. At the 
    bottom, look underneath the stairs for a chest with a Phoenix feather. 
    
    Jump through the archway and walk forward. To your left and right are
    color-changing chests.
    
    Walk down the path and kill the enemies that appear. Take out the
    archers with Zeus' Fury and climb up onto the ledge for magic and
    red orbs. Climb down and continue until you reach the large gate.
    Jump and grab the ledge above.
    
    Go forward and kill all the Minotaur. Open the chest for magic or 
    health and continue down the path. Kill the archers and continue
    forward.
    
    When you reach the next ledge, jump down to the path below and open
    the chests for health or magic. Continue down the path until you
    reach another gate and open the chests for red orbs. Jump up and
    grab the ledge above.
    
    Go forward and kill the two Cyclops. It helps if you isolate one and 
    keep pounding on it. There is a health chest to the right if you need 
    it.
    
    When you kill both of them, more enemies show up. Kill them as best you 
    can. When the horde of enemies finally subsides, continue down the path
    and kill all of the archers. Ignore the first ladder on the right side
    of the path (there's nothing up there) and climb up the second ladder
    to find a red orb chest. Jump back down to the path below and continue
    forward until you reach another gate. Jump up and grab the ledge above.
    
    Walk forward and climb the ladder.
    
    Go forward. Open the chest if you need health or magic. Climb the
    spiral staircase and pull the lever at the top. The stairs will lower
    so you can continue. Climb the rest of the stairs and you are finally
    out of the sewers.
    
    Go forward and climb the stairs in front of you.
    
    Save your game and head right, down the path. The doors are now open
    to the next area. Behind the door on the right is a chest with a
    Gorgon's eye. Use the chest on the left to regain any magic or health
    you need.

       The Desert Of Lost Souls:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Head down the path and watch the scene. After it's over, head directly 
    east as far as you can go. Now head north and slightly west a bit until 
    you hear singing. Follow the singing and you will find the first siren
    outside a stone temple.
    
    Attack the siren and it will start shooting energy blasts at you. They
    don't hurt too much and are pretty easy to dodge. Hack away at the
    siren until a circle appears over its head. Press circle to kill it
    and imprison its soul in the door.
    
    Now you have to find two more. They are roaming around the desert 
    randomly so I can't really help you. Just run until you hear singing. 
    That's a big giveaway to where they are.
    
    The other sirens travel around with two Minotaur. They re-spawn 
    endlessly, so kill the siren first and then take care of them.
    
    When all three sirens are dead, return to the temple. 
    
    Walk inside and save your game. The chests contain blue and green orbs. 
    Head through the door to the left of the save point and walk down the
    stairs. At the end of the path, you will find a moving conveyor belt.
    
    Jump down onto it. To the right are giant, spinning, spiked wheels of 
    doom. Don't go there. Head to the left and you will see a door that you
    can open. Open the door to find a stone block. Pull the block out of
    the doorway and kick it to the left.
    
    As you kick the block, enemies will drop down onto the conveyor belt.
    The enemies will not stop spawning, so don't spend too much time
    killing them. Kill them as quickly as you can and then kick the block
    to the left some more. Eventually you will reach a wall at the end of
    the conveyor belt. Climb onto the block and then quickly jump to the
    top of the wall.
    
    Walk forward and open the door. Walk to the end of the hallway and
    blow the horn.
    
    Go forward down the new path. At the end you will see a scene. After
    the scene, you will be ambushed by a lot of sirens. They will come
    in groups of three but they will keep spawning in as you kill them.
    
    The best thing to do here is to try to isolate one of the three and
    hammer away at it. It isn't easy but it will keep you from being
    overwhelmed by all three at once. Poseidon's Rage and Rage Of The
    Gods help a lot here. When all of the sirens are dead, the horn will
    reappear. Blow it and another scene will play. Save at the save point.

       Pandora's Temple:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Cross the large bridge in front of you. The door forward is locked so 
    we have to go around. On the left and right side of the door are chests 
    with green or blue orbs.
    
    Head to the left side of the door and head down the ramp. Follow the 
    path, under the bridge and to the very right of the area. Pull the 
    stone block out and climb up for a scene. The door forward will open. 
    Jump back down to the door via the walkway on the left and you will be 
    attacked by two Cyclops. These are only a little harder than before but 
    you can take them.
    
    When you kill the first Cyclops a third one appears. Once you kill them 
    all, the door forward is unbarred. Ascend the large staircase in front 
    of you. To the left is a chest with a Gorgon's eye. To the right is a 
    chest with a Phoenix feather. There's also a chest with blue or green 
    orbs.
    
    Rotate the lever to open the door. Run inside.
    
    Fight off the undead soldiers. If you need it, there is a chest with 
    green orbs on the left side of the room. When they're all dead, examine 
    the eye on the wall and a door will open. Walk through the door to face
    the tests of the gods.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       Rings Of Pandora:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Head left until you see a door in the right wall. Go inside. Walk down
    the hallway, rolling to avoid the spiked, crushing machines. Kill the
    archers in the next room and open the chests for green, blue, and red
    orbs. Save your game at the save point.
    
    Go into the alcove behind the archers and pull the lever. This stops
    the crushing spikes and lowers a lever in the main room. Return to
    the main room and rotate the lever. Keep rotating it until you see
    another glowing god symbol.
    
    Head inside the room and go forward to get The Blade Of Artemis. 
    Continue forward down the hallway.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       The Challenge Of Atlas:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Continue forward and save your game. Continue down the hall to the next 
    room. A bunch of really weak enemies assault you at once. Test out your 
    new blade here. After you kill them, a bunch of harder gorgons appear. 
    Take them out whichever way you prefer.
    
    Once the room is clear of enemies, open the chest in the upper right 
    for health or magic. Go to the left side of the room. Jump up and grab 
    the stairs. Pull yourself up and head left, destroying the enemies as
    you go. Defeat the archers with your thunderbolts and balance across
    the beams.
    
    To the right is a chest with a Gorgon's eye. Drop back down to ground 
    level and head through the doorway. Turn left at the fork and walk down
    the next hallway.
    
    Kill the gorgons that attack you and take out the archers as well. Go 
    back to fork and walk into the alcove. There is a container full of
    rocks here. Bring this to the room where you just fought the gorgons.
    
    In this room you should see a circular button in the middle. When this 
    button is pressed, the little archway at the top of the stairs 
    revolves. What you need to do is drag the square container to the 
    stairs by the alcove. Kick the container so that it presses the button. 
    As the container slides across the floor to the button, you need to 
    roll into the alcove and you should revolve with the wall.
    
    Take your time to kill all the enemies here. If you need health or 
    magic there are chests close by you can open. When the enemies are 
    dead, go to the end of this small hall and there is a chest with red 
    orbs you can open.
    
    Climb the ladder at the corner and go under the archway. Use the beam
    to cross the gap and press R2 to pick up the shield. Balance along the
    rafters and open the chests in the alcoves for more red orbs.
    
    Jump down to the room below. Place the shield in the door and return 
    to the room where the easy enemies and the gorgon's assaulted you.
    
    Climb onto the stairs and make your way over to the ledge where you 
    found the Gorgon's eye before. On the left side of this ledge is a
    lever. Pull it and a weight will drop next to you. Jump onto the
    rope attached to it and slide down.
    
    Once you reach the bottom, head right, climbing the horizontal
    rope to the other side. Enemies will assault you but you can take them.
    
    On the other side of the rope are chests that will replenish your 
    health and magic. Ascend the stairs and take the shield.
    
    At this point, a boatload of enemies will drop down into the room. At 
    the same time, on the opposite side of the room, a large battering ram 
    will inch towards you. If it gets to you before you destroy the enemies 
    and break the seal on the door, you will be crushed.
    
    Use Poseidon's Rage and Rage Of The Gods to kill them quicker. Avoid 
    rushing forwards and being boxed in. Corner them on the right side and 
    finish them off.
    
    Once they are all dead, the battering ram will back off and the door 
    will open. Use the chests to fill your health and magic. Jump to the
    ledge with rope and climb to the top.
    
    Jump over to the ledge on the right and drop down to the first floor
    of the room. Go back through the hall and to the door. Place the
    shield on the door and now you can open it.
    
    Go through the door, down the stairs, and down the next hall. Save your 
    game at the save point.
    
    Climb the ladder next to the save point, walk down the hall, and enter 
    the next room. This room has crazy death saws all over the place. Go 
    slowly through, making sure to move only one or two squares at a time.
    
    There's nothing you can do in this room yet, so go through the door on 
    the right side of the room. Smash the pots for orbs. Turn left and 
    break down the wall of rock. Kill the enemies and step onto the 
    conveyor belt.
    
    There are more death crushing machines here, so roll past and head to 
    the end of the conveyor belt. Turn left and ascend the stairs. Cross 
    the bridge, killing harpies as you go, and head into the next area. To 
    the left is a chest with green or blue orbs.
    
    Head right and climb the narrow gap in between the wall and the side of 
    the cliff. Climb as far up as you can go then head right, killing 
    enemies. When you can't go right any more, climb up further, killing 
    more enemies. At the top, head left. One part in the middle has a ledge 
    with a red orb chest.
    
    Continue left and you will reach a small alcove with a lever. There is 
    also a health chest here. Pull the lever to drop a chain. This acts as 
    a shortcut so you don't have to keep climbing that area. Head through 
    the door in front of you.
    
    In this room, the door will close behind you and you will have to 
    defeat a bunch of enemies. Make sure you defeat them quickly or time 
    will run out and the floor will give out beneath you. There is nothing 
    but death after that.
    
    The enemies aren't too difficult. Half of them have shields but you can 
    take them out with the Plume Of Prometheus (square, square, triangle). 
    The rest are sirens. To kill these enemies faster, use Poseidon's Rage 
    or Rage Of The Gods.
    
    Once you kill the enemies, go to the altar and grab the handle. The 
    floor is sturdy now, so go bock to the previous area and slide down the 
    chain. Save your game at the new save point.
    
    Return to the room with all the blades. To open the door to the north, 
    you have to pull both levers. It takes a little practice to get the 
    pattern of the blades right and get to the levers quick enough. The 
    easiest thing that you can do is: pull the lever on the lower right. 
    Quickly roll twice, diagonally towards the second lever. Run north to 
    the lever and pull it. Now, roll east and quickly head through the 
    door.
    
    Shimmy across the small ledge and open the door. Hopefully you didn't 
    take a lot of damage from the spinning blades because you have a fight 
    on your hands here. The archers don't pose a threat but the Minotaur 
    group together in the small hallway to take you down, so be careful.
    
    Now, head to the giant statue and attach the handle on the piece of 
    wood. Rotate the handle until the stone ball is on Atlas' back. Head
    to the right side of the area and go down the hallway, killing
    enemies as you go.
    
    To your left is a chest with a Phoenix Feather. Head to the right and
    kill the archers. The chest here has a Gorgon's Eye. Now go to the
    middle of the bridge above the bottom floor and you will find a
    lever. Pull it and the statue will throw the stone ball and open
    the door.
    
    Jump down and head through the newly-opened door. Cross the bridge and 
    head to the coffin. Pull off the lid and climb inside. Rip off the 
    skull of the architect's son and claim it. Once you do, the coffin will 
    slide away and reveal a hole. Climb down the ladder.
    
    Open the chest for magic or health and head down the hallway. You will 
    come to a part of the hallway where dead bodies are strewn everywhere. 
    A scene will play. Once it's over, head forward, use the chest for 
    health or magic, and open the door.
    
    You are back in the room with the pool of water where you pulled the 
    lever and lowered the other lever. Save your game here.
    
    Head down the hallway, killing enemies as you go. Head out the door
    and it will close behind you. Walk across the hall to the door with
    the large skull in the middle.
    
    Insert the skull into the skull lock and the door will open. Wait here 
    for a second. In the next ring, there is a giant cylinder waiting to 
    crush you. Wait for it to roll by and run to the right. Follow the
    path until you see a staircase on your left. Ascend it for a cut
    scene showing you a ladder.
    
    To get to the ladder, you will have to wait for the cylinder to get
    close to the ledge you are standing on. Jump onto the cylinder and
    walk in the opposite direction that it is rolling (to the left
    basically), so you don't fall off. Once the cylinder reaches the
    ladder, jump onto it and start climbing.
    
    The ladder will slide down to floor level so you can climb it easier. 
    The cylinder will fall into a hole underground, so you don't have to 
    avoid it anymore.
    
    Climb up the ladder and you will reach a ledge with chests containing
    red orbs, green orbs, blue orbs, and a Gorgon's Eye.
    
    Note: You are only allowed to upgrade your health and magic three
    times. If you have already gathered 18 Gorgon's Eyes, then the chests
    that would contain Gorgon's Eyes will contain red orbs instead. This
    also applies to Phoenix Feathers.
    
    Save your game at the save point here.

       The Challenge Of Poseidon:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    Head down the hallway to the end and cross the bridge. A scene will 
    take over. You now have to fight off a Cerberus and a few other small 
    dogs. This fight can be tricky if you don't know what to do. The main
    thing to do is to focus on the small dogs first. Each dog can morph
    into a full Cerberus and it is really difficult to fight a whole
    group of them at once.
    
    Kill all of the small dogs until only the main Cerberus is left.
    The battle should be a lot easier now. Kill it any way you prefer
    and the barrier will disappear. Open up the chest for health or
    magic and continue down the path. Take out the two Cyclops up ahead
    and then continue forward.
    
    There is an army of archers waiting for you up ahead. Roll to avoid
    their arrows and take them out. Continue forward and you will have
    to fight some more evil dogs and archers. Once all of the enemies
    are dead, the way forward will open.
    
    Enter the circular room and pull the lever. Unless you're very skilled, 
    don't try to open the red orb chests here. The gates close very quickly
    and will kill you instantly.
    
    When the room stops spinning, head out the door and walk forward. There 
    will be a new enemy type here. They're nothing special, so kill them
    and walk to the left until you can't go any further.
    
    Turn right and look up at the side of the mountain. You will see a
    horizontal indentation just above. Jump up and grab it. Pull
    yourself up and jump up the next ledge. Continue climbing likes
    this until you  can't climb any higher. Shimmy to the right for a
    chest with a muse key. Head left and keep going until the ledge widens.
    
    Kill the enemies here. Continue down the path and open the chests for
    health and magic. Save at the next save point.
    
    In the next room there will be a bunch of cages hanging up. Ignore 
    them for now and jump down to the path below. Run up the sloping path
    to the next room. There's a handle lying on the ground to the right.
    Pick it up and run back to the cages. Place the handle onto the lever
    that's underneath the cages.
    
    Rotate the lever to lower one of the cages. Push the cage off the
    ledge and start to push it up the hill. Enemies will spawn and attack
    you, so rest the cage on one the rocks and kill them. Continue pushing
    the cage up the hill and fighting off the enemies until you reach the
    top.
    
    Bring the cage into the next room and place it on the square between 
    the two furnaces. Pull the lever to make a sacrifice for the gods.
    
    Continue forward down the hallway. In the next room, cross the bridge
    and grab Poseidon's Trident. Save your game at the save point.
    
    Poseidon's Trident allows you to swim underwater indefinitely. While
    in water, press square to dive and X or triangle to surface.
    
    Swim to the left side of the room and climb the ladder. There is a 
    Phoenix Feather in the chest. On the right side of the room, there is 
    another chest with green orbs.
    
    Dive into the water on the right and head south to find a hole. Swim 
    down and forward. Hold R1 and release to use the swim dash move and 
    break through the cracked wall. Do this twice more and surface at the 
    other side.
    
    Kill all of the evil dogs here and open the chest for some red orbs.
    Open the door in front of you and pull the lever. Swim back to the 
    previous room. Kill the Cerberus and harpies.
    
    When the enemies are dead, climb up the ledges that appeared when you 
    pulled the lever and walk down the new path. Open the chest for blue or 
    green orbs. Continue down the path and dive into the water.
    
    Swim forward down the underwater hall. Press circle to embrace the Nyad 
    and it will descend further underwater. Dive down the opening and turn 
    right. Swim down the next hall. At the end is a carving of more Nyads.
    Use your swim charge to break the carving and find another Nyad.
    Embrace this one for a Phoenix Feather (that's what it gave me at
    least).
    
    Swim down the passageway to the right. Up ahead, there will be an
    opening shaped like a mouth. When you go through this, about a million 
    different spikes and blades close in to try and kill you. Keep using 
    the swim dash to make it through. Swim down the path until you can't
    go any further. Surface and kill all of the enemies.
    
    If you need health or magic there are chests here. Pull the lever to
    lower a gate.
    
    Swim back down the hallway, through the mouth opening (the saws try
    to close in again so be careful), and back to the Nyad carving.
    Head left this time. Emerge from the water and kill all the soldiers.
    
    Once they are all dead, break through the north wall and destroy the 
    hundreds of pots. At the end you will find a chest with the second muse 
    key.
    
    Head back to the fork. Swim back towards the screen and you will find 
    that the Poseidon carving that used to be on the left has opened to 
    reveal another passage. Swim down it and save your game.
    
    To the left of the save point is a cracked wall. Use your swim dash
    to break it open and you will find a circular room with a Nyad.
    Embrace the Nyad and it will swim off somewhere. From here, swim
    upwards and you will find a room filled with red orb chests. Thanks
    to David Jobe for pointing this out. Return to the save point.
    
    Swim forward and descend into the hole. Before going all the way
    down, wait a minute. There is a moving chain under you. After a
    few minutes a wall will pass by. If you get hit by the wall you
    will be pushed into a wall of spikes and you will die.
    
    Wait until the wall passes and descend. Quickly swim to the left
    and descend into the small alcove so that the wall passes over you.
    Wait until another wall passes and swim out of the alcove. Use your
    swim dash to reach the next alcove. If you don't make it at first,
    charge your dash longer and you will go farther. It takes a couple
    of tries but you can do it.
    
    Swim to the hole at the end and descend into it. Swim forward and 
    surface. At the bottom left corner of the room is a save point. Kill 
    the enemies and save your game.
    
    To the left and right are chests with health and magic. There is a
    lever in the center of the platform. Pull it and a bunch of platforms
    will rise from the water. Run across them quickly because they are
    temporary. Kill the enemies up here and open the chests for red orbs.
    
    Now, jump back into the water and swim to the lever. Pull it again. 
    This time, jump into the water. Dive down and swim to the platform 
    closest to the ledge you ascended to a moment ago. There is an alcove 
    inside it.
    
    Swim into it and wait for the platforms to descend again. Swim forward 
    down the passage and surface at the end. You are back in the room with 
    the lever and the crushers.
    
    Run down the crusher hallway and defeat the enemies with the shields. 
    Exit the hallway and the door will close behind you. Return to the 
    second ring where the cylinder used to be. Climb the stairs and jump 
    into the giant pool.
    
    Descend into the hole and swim down the passage. Surface at the end of 
    the passage and run down the hallway. In the next room, a short scene 
    will show you a lever but you don't need to pull it yet. We'll come 
    back to this room later.
    
    Head directly across from the door you came in and there will be the 
    outline of another door blocked by rocks. Break it open with a few 
    slashes and head forward. Save your game.
    
    Continue down the hall, open the chests to replenish health and magic, 
    and climb the ladder. Turn right and go down the hall to the next room.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       The Challenge Of Hades:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This next room is gigantic. On either side of the stairs to the north 
    are chests with health orbs.
    
    Walk to the left side of the room and climb the ledges to reach a door.
    Try to open the door and it will ask you to make a blood sacrifice to
    pass. Choose yes and a bunch of new, centaur type enemies will appear.
    Behind the pool of blood, a circle will appear. You have to kill the
    centaurs in this circle in order for the sacrifice to be accepted.
    
    The centaurs aren't too tough. They will try to block your attacks
    and surround you, so I recommend either spamming Poseidon's Rage or
    focusing on one at a time. Either way, they shouldn't give you too
    much trouble.
    
    Once they're dead, another circle will appear in front of the pool
    of blood. Kill the enemies in here and the door will fully open.
    
    Go through the door and walk down the hallway. Go left and, right
    before the next door, there is a small ledge that you can use to
    climb onto the plateau. Up here are chests with red orbs and one
    chest with a Phoenix Feather. Jump down and open the next door.
    
    Head down the hallway and jump over the first set of floor hazards. 
    Continue down the hall and you will see a large gap in the floor.
    Watch carefully and you will see that a strip of floor at the end
    opens and closes as well. Time your jump so that the floor is solid
    when you reach the other side. It's a little tricky but you should
    get it after a few tries. Continue down the hall.
    
    Roll past the spears that shoot out of the walls and continue forward. 
    A door will close behind you. If you are low on health, grab some
    from the chest and continue down the path. Kill the Gorgon up ahead.
    At the fork, head left and kill the archer.
    
    Go back to the fork and head right this time. At the next fork head
    left and you will enter a large room. There are a bunch of centaurs
    and a few gorgons here. Kill them whichever way you like.
    
    Once they're all dead, head north and open the chest for red orbs. 
    Continue down the path to the right and kill the normal enemies. This
    path loops back to the circular room, so head back to the fork.
    
    Go forward and kill the archers. Head right, killing the gorgon and
    the warriors. At the end of this path is a health chest. Return to
    the fork and head left.
    
    Turn the crank to raise the platform to the next level. Once you reach 
    the top, jump off of the platform. In front of you is a portion of the
    wall with a mural carved into it. Walk up to it and push it forward
    until it falls into a hole.
    
    The path in front of you will extend one square at a time and then it
    will all disappear at once, so you need to be quick. Walk on each
    square as it extends and jump to the next side before it all gives
    way. Open the chests for red orbs.
    
    Now the floor is stable so head back and return the main path.
    
    Head forward; ignore the left path for now; and turn right. Walk
    forward and kill the archers. The left path up here is blocked, so
    head right again and push the wall forward until it falls into a hole.
    
    Clear the room of enemies and smash everything for red orbs. Follow
    the path as it curves around to the left and open the chest for health.
    Walk down the hall to the left and kill the archers. Open up the door
    on the left and you are back where you started. Return to the path that
    you ignored a moment ago. Walk down the hall and kill the two archers.
    
    In the next hall is a giant crushing machine. Wait for it to retract, 
    enter the hall, and jump on top of it so it doesn't crush you. Walk to
    the end of the crusher and kill all of the enemies. Examine the statue
    and it will say that you will have to kill everyone in the maze before
    you can leave. If you have been following this guide closely, you
    should have only one more group of enemies left.
    
    Wait for the crusher to retract until a new door is revealed. Enter
    and kill all of the enemies here. When they are all dead, a door will
    open in the previous hallway. Wait for the crusher to retract again
    and walk out into the hallway. Jump on top of the crusher and head
    through the door you opened. Walk to the end of the next hallway and
    a scene will take over.
    
    Step on the button and wait. A giant statue of Hades will rise from the 
    pool of blood. Jump down to the floor below and save your game at the
    new save point.
    
    Dive into the water around the statue and descend to the bottom. Pull 
    the lever here and a light beam will shoot out of the statue's mouth. 
    Resurface and start to climb the ladder on the side of the statue.
    
    As you do this, a grate will rise above the blood water. Well, you
    can't go back down there, so keep climbing. Use the lever on the
    statue's head to rotate the head. The light illuminates the path
    forward. It's not very inviting but we have to continue. Jump down
    off the statue, save your game, and climb the large staircase. Jump
    the gap and head forward, dodging the balls of fire. It's best to
    just run around the balls instead of rolling because you could
    accidentally roll into another ball of fire.
    
    Run to the end of the hallway and enter the room underneath the slope. 
    Kill the enemies and open the chests for some health, red orbs, and a 
    Phoenix Feather. If you read the plaque here, you will see that you 
    will have to figure out which of the doors you passed is the right way 
    forward. The rest are dead ends.
    
    To save you the time and trouble, the correct door is the third door
    on the left from this room. In other words, head out of this room and
    follow the left wall until you reach the third door. Wait for the
    balls of fire to subside a bit and open the door.
    
    Run through the door and head down the hallway. In the next room,
    you will have to fight a bunch of enemies. There is a new type of
    minotaur here that wields a large axe. They have a bit more stamina
    than other minotaur but that's about it. Kill the minotaur and the
    archers and the barrier will disappear. Head down the path to the
    right and kill all the enemies. Open the chest for health or magic.
    
    Return to the room where you fought the minotaur and head down the
    left path. At the end of the path is a horizontal rope. Make your
    way across the rope, killing enemies as you go. Drop down to the next
    area and get ready for a battle. First you will have to fight a
    battalion of soldiers and then you will face a bunch of minotaur and
    centaurs. Use everything at your disposal to kill your enemies.
    Poseidon's Rage and Rage of the Gods help a lot here.
    
    When all the enemies are dead, climb the ladder. Jump up to the next 
    pathway and head forward. When you reach the first fork, head right
    to find some pots you can smash. Return to the fork and continue
    forward.  At the next fork, go forward to find a red orb chest.
    Return to the fork and head left this time. Turn left at the third
    fork to find some more pots. Return to the fork and go right. Save
    your game at the save point.
    
    Head through the archway and walk to the end of the walkway. Here
    you need to balance across a beam while avoiding a death machine.
    When it gets near you simply double jump straight in the air to
    avoid it.
    
    Head across the first beam and head right at the fork (there's
    nothing to the left. Balance across this beam and head right
    again (again, there's nothing to the left) and head to the walkway.
    
    Balance across the beam to the right to find a chest with a Phoenix
    Feather. Go back across the beam and walk to the end of the walkway.
    Balance across the next beam and head left at the fork for some red
    orbs. Return to the fork and continue forward. Go right at the next
    fork for more red orbs.
    
    Return to the fork and head forward. Three of the arms of this death 
    machine have blades. The fourth is actually a beam, leading to a 
    ladder. Jump onto this beam and climb the ladder.
    
    Climb the next ladder and you will be on a higher walkway. Balance 
    across the beam. Head right and down and you will reach a chest with 
    red orbs. Return to the previous walkway and slide down the rope.
    
    You will be on another walkway. Walk to the end of the walkway,
    climb down the ladder, and walk across the next walkway to reach
    another hall. Follow the hall until you reach a wheel. Turn it to
    open the gigantic door from the first room in The Challenge Of Hades
    and unleash something truly nasty.
    
    Walk down the path to the left until you reach the bottom of the
    stairs. Follow the hallway back to the save point and save your game.
    Continue down the hall and enter the next room.
    
    The door will close behind you. Head to the door that is about to burst 
    open. A REAL Minotaur rushes in. It's finally time for a boss fight.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 The Minotaur
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The only real difficulty of this boss is figuring out how the hell to 
    damage him. Once you know this, you can defeat him. First of all, run 
    to the back of the room and climb the stairs to reach a small platform.
    Now the Minotaur can only come at you from one side. It's much easier
    this way.
    
    You can block most of the Minotaur's attacks (although I rarely block
    in this game). There are only two attacks you can't block. The first
    attack is when it raises the hand to your right and tries to grab you.
    Double jump left to avoid this. The second is when fire engulfs the
    platform you are standing on. Just double jump to avoid this.
    
    Now, to damage the Minotaur. Notice that, in the top right of the
    screen, is what looks like a health meter. That is the Minotaur's
    health meter but because the beast is armored, the health meter is
    inaccessible right now. Also, note that on the beast's armor are
    four holes on the front and on its back. Now, begin to attack it.
    After a few attacks, it backs off for a minute, emits health and
    magic orbs, and one of the holes lights up. The Minotaur will then
    come charging back at you. Keep attacking like this until all the
    holes are lit up.
    
    When this happens, the beast backs off and a circle appears over
    its head. Run up to it and initiate the mini-game. Press the right
    buttons and the beast will be stunned. Run back up the stairs and
    head to the left side of the platform to find a lever. Pull it to
    send a giant log flying at the boss. This cracks his armor a bit.
    Notice that you can start to see its health meter.
    
    Repeat this pattern. Damage the boss until the circle appears
    overhead, stun the boss, and unleash a second log of death upon
    it. This time, as you attack the boss, pieces of its armor begin
    to fall off. Once the armor's gone, you can finally damage it.
    Also, it leaks out dozens of health and magic orbs. If your health
    and magic aren't full after this I would be surprised. Now you have
    full health and it's exposed, so wear down its health until it jumps
    back, stunned. Run to the lever. Unleash a final log upon the boss
    and it will die a gruesome and amazing death.
    Congratulations! You just beat the second boss.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The boss leaves behind a bunch of health, magic, and blood orbs. 
    Upgrade your weapons and magic and run through the opening that the 
    Minotaur made in the huge door.
    
    Run up the large staircase and save your game. Run up the next
    staircase and you will find yourself in a small room. On either
    side of the room are chests containing health, magic, and red orbs.
    On the far side of the room is a coffin. Pull the lid off of the
    coffin and jump inside. Press R2 rapidly to get the head of the
    architect's second son. Return to the room with the Minotaur.
    
    There is another glowing symbol here. Walk into the symbol and you
    will get a new spell: Army Of Hades. Test it out on the enemies
    that assail you. When all of your enemies are dead, the door will
    open. Go through the door and walk to the end of the hall.
    
    Dive into the water and swim back to the Rings of Pandora. Insert
    the skull into the door in the statue to lower the water. Now find
    the door on the outer side of the ring that you can open. It's right
    next to a lever. Open the door and use the lever to rotate the room
    so that it lines up with the door you opened with the first skull.
    Once the two doors are aligned, go inside the statue in the middle
    of the rings.
    
    Rotate the lever here so that it lines up with the other two doors.
    Now go to the outermost ring. Find the lever and rotate the wall
    until you see a hallway with a small staircase. Walk down the hallway
    and you will see a golden door with two empty slots.
    
    Use the two muse keys to open the door. Inside the next room you will
    find two red orb chests and a few other goodies. Walk up to each of
    the fountains and press R2 to increase your health and magic and gain
    a boatload of red orbs. Save your game here.
    
    Go back outside and rotate the wall until you can see the hallway
    with the spiked crushers. Walk to the end of the hallway and kill
    the enemies. They should be no match for your new powers.
    
    In the next room, push the two statues together to make a light
    shine to the gem in the middle of the rings. The statue of Zeus
    will rise. Run back to the middle of the rings and pull the lever
    to ascend to the top.
    
    Walk through the door and step onto the hands of the statue. The
    hands will extend and bring you to a new walkway. Walk forwards
    and a scene will take over.
    
    There is a new enemy type here. It is very agile and will counter
    your attacks. Avoid using combos and just attack at random.
    Army of Hades helps a lot here. There is a health chest on the
    right if you need it. 
    
    Once the first enemy is dead, two more will appear. Take them
    both out and the barrier will disappear. Walk to the center of
    the bridge for another scene. Afterwards, walk to the end of
    the bridge, open the chest for health or magic, and save your game.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
       The Cliffs Of Madness:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    Go forward, down the path, and defeat the enemies at the end. Once 
    they're good and dead, use Zeus' Fury to take out the archers across 
    the way. The chest to the left has magic. Now, head right and double 
    jump across the platforms, killing archers as you go.
    
    At the end of the path, kill the archers and harpies and then cross
    the rope. On the other side, drop to the ground and follow the path
    to the left. Kill the enemies at the end of the path and step in the
    elevator. Turn the handle and ascend to the next level. Save your game.
    
    Ascend the ladder next to the save point. Follow the path to the right
    and climb the next ladder. Walk to the right again and climb a third
    ladder. Ignore the archway for now and head to the left, killing 
    all the enemies as you go. There is a chest with red orbs here.
    
    Return to the archway and head inside. Walk down the hallway and kill
    the Jackal enemy. Continue forward and kill another jackal. Continue
    down the hall and open the chest for magic. Walk down the path to the
    right and double jump to the wooden platform.
    
    Take out the archers with Zeus' Fury. Turn the handle to rotate the
    wooden walkways close together. Rotate them farther than you need to
    because they rotate back when you let go.
    
    Jump to the next wooden platform and wait for the walkway to stop
    moving. Walk across the walkway and follow the path to the left.
    Kill the jackal and continue forward. Take out the archers and exit
    the cave. To the left is a color-changing chest. Walk to the right
    and jump to the next level. Defeat the three Minotaur here.
    
    Head right and you will see an arch with busts of goddesses on each
    side. They are missing their necklaces. We'll get to that in a
    little bit. Go underneath the arch and walk to the edge of the cliff.
    You should be able to see a waterfall in the distance. Just to your
    left is a small pile of rocks. Jump on top of it and you will find a
    hidden area.
    
    Walk forward and and open the chest for red orbs. Enter the cave on
    the left and walk to the end of path. Kill the archers and dive into
    the water. Swim down the passage and surface at the other end. You
    will be on top of the waterfall you were looking at a few moments ago.
    Destroy the three cracked walls and open the chests for a LOT of red
    orbs.
    
    Swim back down the passage and return to the arch. Walk to the left
    and you should see a ladder. Climb down the ladder and jump down to
    the path below. Follow the path to the right and kill the jackals.
    Continue down the path, kill the archers, and open the chest for
    more red orbs. Slide down the rope.
    
    Walk through the doorway and follow the path until you reach a
    small room. A whole bunch of enemies will attack you here. The
    main thing to remember here is to not let the enemies surround
    you. Keep rolling out of the way of their attacks and slash away.
    Use Army of Hades and Rage of the Gods and most of the enemies
    should fall. Kill the rest of the enemies and open the chest for
    some health.
    
    Continue down the passageway. Now here's the first necklace puzzle. 
    It's a lot like Tetris. You have to fit the blocks in the right spaces. 
    First, take the block that looks like a giant T and place it on the 
    circle in the middle of the floor. Use the handle to rotate it 90 
    degrees so it really does look like a T. Place it in the exact center 
    of the wall so that the shaft of the T is right under the small 
    overhanging block.
    
    Now grab the large block on the right and rotate it 90 degrees so
    that it looks like a question mark. Place that to the right of the
    T. Grab the straight stone column and place that on the very right.
    Grab the block that looks like an upside-down L and rotate 180
    degrees it so that the overhang is facing to the right. Place that
    on the very left. Now take the two story block and place it in the
    last gap and you're done. The other block is extra.
    
    Take the necklace and the door that closed behind you will open. A 
    ladder will also lower back outside the cave. Exit the cave and save 
    your game. Turn right and climb the ladder. Follow the path to the
    right and begin climbing the cliff wall.
    
    Climb as high as you can, then head right, killing enemies as you go. 
    Climb to the top again, and then head right, jumping the gaps. When
    you can't go any further right climb to the top and go left. At the
    far left end, there is a ledge with health or magic.
    
    Go back to the wall and climb up to the top. There is a red orb chest
    here. Jump to the platform on the right to find a chest with a Phoenix
    Feather. Jump to the platform on the right and climb down wall. When
    you can't go down any further, go right and you will find a lever.
    Pull it to lower a rope in another part of the level.
    
    Climb back onto the wall and go left. When you can't go left any
    further, climb to the top. Jump across the platforms to the left
    and climb down the wall. Climb to the right and jump the gap. Climb
    down the next wall and drop down to solid ground.
    
    Now it's time to backtrack a bit. Follow the path back to the ladder
    and climb to the top. Go left and jump down to the path below. Go
    through the archway and walk down the tunnel until you reach the
    wooden platform. Use the lever to rotate the walkway and then jump
    to the next wooden platform. Wait for the walkway to stop moving and
    walk to the end. Jump the gap and follow the path until you are out
    of the cave.
    
    Climb down the ladder and head to the left. Climb down the second
    ladder and head to the left again. Climb down the third ladder and
    you should be right next to a save point. Save your game.
    
    Walk to the right and jump over the rocks. Follow the path to
    the right and kill the archers. Enter the new cave and walk down
    the tunnel until you reach a large room. The door will seal behind
    you as you enter. Kill all the enemies and the doors will open
    again. Go through the door and walk to the end of the path.
    
    Go to the left and you will find an elevator. Rotate the lever to
    reach the next level. Save your game at the save point. To your
    right is the rope you lowered with the switch. You can use this
    as a shortcut later.
    
    Go through the archway in front of you. In this next room, note two 
    things: there are a bunch of holes in the floor and a lever. When you 
    pull the lever, a gate opens, giving you access to a block. This will 
    let you jump to the ledge at the north part of the room that you can't
    reach. The catch is that the whole thing is timed and if you aren't
    fast enough, you die. 
    
    Pull the lever and pull the block out of the alcove. Kick the block
    to the ledge as fast as you can and jump up to it. This is a little
    tricky and takes practice. If you're having trouble, try charging
    your kick a little more. The more you charge your kick, the farther
    the block will go and the faster you can get the block to that ledge.
    
    Open up the chest for a Phoenix Feather. Jump to the ivy on the next 
    ledge and climb up. Take the next necklace. The spikes will retract and 
    the door will open. Jump down to the ground, exit the room and save
    your game. Return to the busts of the goddesses and place a necklace
    on each one.
    
    Stone platforms to your right will begin to extend and retract. Wait
    for the first one to extend all the way, then jump across to the next
    one. Keep doing this, opening the chests along the way, until you
    reach the top. Follow the path to the right and an amazing scene
    will trigger.
    
    Continue forward, killing enemies as you go. Jump over the rubble
    and head further down the path. Swing across the ropes and climb
    the cliff face. Step into the elevator and pull the lever to
    ascend even further up the mountainside.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       The Architect's Tomb:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Continue down the path and save your game. Ignore the button on
    the ground and start jumping across the moving platforms.
    Remember, the blades are always faster than the platforms so
    time your jumps accordingly. When you get to the other side,
    walk to the right side of the area and open the wooden gate.
    
    Walk through the doorway and the gate will close behind you.
    Go forward, open the chest for health or magic, and continue
    along the hallway, killing enemies as you go. When you reach
    the large open area, you'll have to face off against a Cyclops
    and a horde of evil dogs. Use Poseidon's rage and other spells
    to kill them off before they become a nuisance.
    
    When they're dead, climb up the ladder on the left side and
    break through the gate for a chest full of red orbs and a
    health chest. Jump back down and climb the ladder in the middle. 
    
    Rotate the crane so it's over the cracked portion of the ground.
    Run to the end of the crane and pull the lever to lower a stone
    block and break through. Pull the lever again to raise the stone
    block and rotate the crane so it's over the button on the right.
    Lower the block onto the button.
    
    Jump down to the main area and kill the Cyclops. Kill the other
    two that appear after it dies. Walk over to the left side of the
    area and  grab the statue. Push the statue over to the right side
    of the area and drop it into the hole you opened. Place it over
    the button at the bottom and another door opens. Jump back
    across the moving platforms and walk over to the last button.
    
    Step on the button and the remaining part of the door will open.
    It won't stay open forever, so quickly cross the moving platforms
    and roll through the open doorway. Remember again: the blades are
    quicker than the platforms.
    
    In the next room, rip the skull off of the corpse and a scene will
    play. Walk down the hallway to the end and turn right. Walk forward
    a bit and you will see two lion statues. Walk down the stairs in
    between the statues and head over to the right side of the area.
    Down the next staircase are two chests with red orbs.
    
    Run back up the stairs and save your game at the save point.
    Continue down the path and climb the large staircase. Go down
    the hallway and descend the large spiral staircase.
    
    Walk down the hall and enter the next room. In this room there are
    a bunch of moving walkways. On either side of the walkways are
    giant rotating wheels. If you touch these wheels you will take
    damage, so you will need to stay in the center of the moving
    walkways. Step onto the first walkway and enemies will attack.
    
    This fight is somewhat difficult but there is a trick to it.
    First, take out all of the archers until none are left. Make sure
    you don't stand near the archers for too long because there are
    flamethrowers just behind them. When all of the archers are dead,
    focus all of your attention on the harpies. Use everything at your
    disposal to take them out. Rage of the Gods and Army of Hades are
    very helpful. Kill the remaining harpies and the barriers will
    disappear.
    
    Follow the path until you reach a room with statues of Zeus,
    Poseidon, and Hades. Pull the handle on the sphere to receive
    Pandora's Box. The room you're in will descend and you will be at
    the entrance to the temple. Pull the box out the main door and
    watch the scene.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
       The Path Of Hades:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    Head forward and open the chests to replenish health and magic. Save 
    your game here. Double jump to the next platform. Keep going forward, 
    platform hopping, to reach a chest with red orbs. Follow the string of 
    platforms to the right (left is a dead end) and get the next red orb
    chest. This time head left at the fork and keep platform hopping until
    you reach a large platform.
    
    Kill the enemies and jump to the next level. Kill the enemies here and
    jump up to the next level. Walk forward and you will see a spinning
    log with blades sticking out of it. Start walking across the log and
    jump to the second platform on the right for some red orbs.
    
    Jump back to the log and walk to the end. Kill the archer and open
    the chest for some more red orbs. Follow the path to the right and
    walk across the two logs to find a chest with lots of red orbs. Walk
    back across the logs and jump to the platform with the chest you
    opened.
    
    Jump to the log on the left and walk to the end. At this point it
    gets kind of crazy. There will be a ton of logs to cross and
    platforms to jump to. It's pretty linear, so you should be able to
    follow the path, but it is kind of tricky. With a little practice
    and a little luck, you should be able to get past the logs and
    reach solid ground.
    
    When you're finally done with those spinning blades, save your
    game and open the chest for health. Now double jump onto the
    moving platform. Jump from platform to platform until you can
    see archers in the distance. Take them out with your thunderbolts.
    Jump across the next couple of platforms and take out the next
    wave of enemies.
    
    Jump up to the ledge on the right and kill the enemies. There is
    a color-changing chest here if you need it. Jump back down to the
    main area and jump up to the ledge on the left. Kill all of the
    enemies here and jump up to the next ledge. Kill the last set of
    enemies and the barrier will disappear. Open the chest for health
    or magic.
    
    Now it's time for another difficult challenge in Hades. This is a 
    stupid challenge but you have to do it anyway. You will have to
    climb the spinning pillar, avoiding the knives. The main annoyance
    is the fact that if you hit one knife, you will fall all the way
    to the bottom. My advice would be to go slow. Try not to rush. Pay
    attention to the knives moving towards you try to move around them.
    It takes patience and a little luck but eventually you will reach
    the top.
    
    When you finally reach the top, open the chest for red orbs, defeat
    the archers, and open the chest for health (you will need health at
    this point). Kill the enemies atop the next ledge.
    
    Now you will have to climb another stupid spinning pillar. This one
    is a little bit easier than the last but it's still annoying as hell.
    (Ironic, no) When you reach the top, fill up on health and magic.
    Save your game. Trust me, you don't want to do that again.
    
    It's time for more platform hopping. Go forward and start hopping
    across the platforms. Go right at the fork for some red orbs. Head
    back  to the fork and go left this time. On the large platform, you
    will have to kill a bunch of Hell Jackals. Each time you kill one,
    a platform rises and you gain more magic orbs. Use a lot of magic
    and Rage Of The Gods to make this fight less annoying. When they're
    all dead, open up the chests for health and magic. Cross the
    platforms that you just raised.
    
    When you get to the other side, kill the archers and go forward. At
    the end of the path, a rope will drop from above. Climb up it and
    you will arrive back at the temple of the oracle.

       The Temple Of The Oracle:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Save your game. When you're ready, enter the temple. In the main room 
    there are a bunch of easy enemies that you've seen before. Take them 
    out and head up the stairs. Kill the gorgon's and the archers and 
    continue forward. Go across the stone bridge and kill more archers. 
    Open the chest for health or magic.
    
    Continue down the hall and kill the Minotaur and the archers. Walk
    to the end of the hall and drop down to the area below. Walk over
    to the far side of the area and save your game. Walk down the next
    hallway.
    
    As you walk down the hall, there will be chests you can open. The
    first two contain red orbs and the next two have health and magic.
    Now you are ready to face Ares. Go forward for a scene.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                              Ares: Phase One
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The important thing to remember about this battle is that Ares is not 
    as powerful as he thinks he is. All of his attacks can be blocked or 
    dodged. Personally, I prefer dodging as it sets you up for your next 
    attack. Your attacks don't do much damage but magic is quite effective, 
    Army Of Hades in particular.
    
    Start off the battle by doing two Army Of Hades spells and attacking
    while Ares is occupied. Doing this will cause magic and health orbs to
    pour out of him. Use the spell again and your magic will be low. Keep
    your distance from him and dodge his attacks. Use Rage Of The Gods and
    you will receive orbs sooner. Continue to attack him and regain magic,
    using that spell when you can.
    
    Most of his attacks aren't that bad. Watch out for his flamethrower
    attack in particular. In the next half of the battle, he flies in the
    air and rains down fireballs. This is very easy to dodge and he is
    vulnerable right after so attack him. Eventually, a circle will appear
    over his head. Press circle to begin a struggle with Ares.
    
    The important thing to pay attention to is how the struggle appears on
    the screen. If you press circle fast enough, Kratos will push forward,
    get pushed back by Ares, and then Kratos will climb on top of Ares.
    Immediately stop pressing circle and press the random onscreen buttons
    that appear. You will gain a lot of health, magic, and blood orbs for
    doing this. Keep pounding on Ares and a scene will play.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                              Ares: Phase Two
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In this part, you will fight off clones of yourself in an attempt to 
    save your deceased family. Before the battle, pause your game and put 
    those orbs to good use. You can transfer health to your family by 
    pressing circle near them.
    
    Start the battle by running over to your family and killing a few
    clones. Let off an Army of Hades Spell and keep attacking. Stay as
    close as you can to your family and they won't lose as much health.
    
    After a few minutes, the temple will crumble away and you will be on
    a floating platform. Use Rage of the Gods and kill as many clones as
    you can. Let off another Army of Hades and heal your family while the
    clones are being killed. Keep hacking away at clones. Use Army of Hades
    to regain magic and heal your family. Eventually, the army of clones
    will subside and a scene will take over.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                             Ares: Phase Three
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This phase is drastically different from anything you've faced up to 
    this point. All of your skills and magic are gone. Your blades are 
    replaced with a single sword. You and Ares share a health meter. If you 
    damage Ares, you heal yourself and vice-versa.
    
    In this fight, it is best to stay defensive. You can't block all of
    his attacks anymore but you can dodge the rest. The main attack to
    watch out for is when he disappears into the ground and pillars rise
    up to crush you. The key to avoiding this is to walk normally until
    the pillars rise up. You should be near the edge of the pillar wall,
    so walk a bit and jump into the air when the pillars come together.
    
    Now, to damage Ares. First, do not attack him more than three times
    if Ares blocks your first attacks. Otherwise he will do a powerful
    attack that you can't block or avoid. Move around to avoid Ares and
    wait until he roars. Immediately attack after this. After your third
    strike, a button press sequence will usually take place. If you press
    circle fast enough, you will win the struggle and you will greatly
    damage Ares. Also, he will be stunned.
    
    Use this to your advantage. Use these tactics and Ares should go down
    eventually. A scene will take place. Congratulations! You beat Ares.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There is only one more sequence left in this game and if you can't do 
    this I don't know how you beat Ares. Enjoy the ending. Thanks for 
    playing and thanks for using my guide!

    Challenge Of The Gods:
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
       ------------
       Challenge 1:
       ------------
    
    The first challenge is to knock 8 enemies off of the platform
    before time runs out. You will fail the challenge if you kill
    an enemy or if you fall off of the platform.
    
    This challenge is tricky but not too hard. In order to knock
    enemies off platforms, you will have to go up to them and
    press circle. Since the enemies all have shields, Kratos will
    push them instead of grabbing them.
    
    The main difficulty here is not falling off of the platform.
    This first thing to do is to tackle one enemy at a time. If
    you isolate one enemy, it will be easier to push it off the
    edge. If you try to tackle two or more, they will all attack
    at once and you will be knocked off the platform.
    
    Don't worry about the time limit. You have quite a bit of time,
    so slow down and focus on each enemy.
    
    Pay close attention to where you are standing. There isn't a
    lot of room on the platform and one false step could force you
    to start all over again.
    
    If you follow these tips, you should be done with challenge
    1 in no time.
    
       ------------
       Challenge 2:
       ------------
    
    The second challenge is to kill all of the soldiers and archers
    in the area before time runs out.
    
    You start the challenge on a floating circular platform. Four
    soldiers will spawn and surround you. One of them has a shield.
    The best thing to do here is to jump into the air and do Lance
    Of The Furies (Hold L1 and circle). This will destroy the shield
    and send the enemies flying. With any luck some of the soldiers
    will fall off of the platform.
    
    Kill the remaining soldiers and run to the left side of the
    platform. Jump to the smaller platform and take out the archer.
    Jump to the second platform and kill another archer. Jump over
    to the big platform and do another Lance Of The Furies. Kill any
    remaining soldiers and go to the north end of the platform.
    
    Jump across the small platforms, killing archers as you go, until
    you reach another large platform. Jump into the air and use Lance
    Of The Furies. Take out the rest of the soldiers and run over to
    the right side of the platform. Jump over the next set of small
    platforms, killing some more archers as you go, until you reach
    the last large platform.
    
    Jump into the air and use Lance Of The Furies. Quickly kill the
    remaining soldiers and run to the south end of the platform. Kill
    the last two archers and you will complete the challenge.
    
    The main enemy here is time. You really can't waste time fighting
    enemies. Whenever enemies try to surround you, jump into the air
    and use Lance Of The Furies. Not only does this move send enemies
    flying (hopefully off of the platform) but it kills those pesky
    harpies that swarm around you. This test takes a few tries but if
    you use Lance Of The Furies (air) wisely, you shouldn't have too
    much trouble.
    
       ------------
       Challenge 3:
       ------------
    
    The third challenge is to destroy all of the pots before time
    runs out.
    
    The best thing to do is separate the pots into sections and take
    each section out with a fully charged Lance Of The Furies. It takes
    a little practice to get the timing right but this challenge is much
    easier than challenge 2.
    
       ------------
       Challenge 4:
       ------------
    
    the fourth challenge is to kill all of the Minotaur without
    killing any of the soldiers.
    
    The first thing to note about this challenge is that you don't have
    a time limit. You're going to want to take this challenge a little
    bit slow. What you want to do is isolate one of the Minotaur and
    roll behind it.
    
    Launch it up into the air with Apollo's Ascension (hold L1 and tap
    X) and then wail away on it with Apollo's Offensive (hold L1 and
    repeatedly tap X). You should be able to take down most of the
    Minotaur's health in your first assault. After that, either launch
    it again or attack it normally.
    
    There are only four Minotaur to kill here but you really have to
    be careful. The soldiers will constantly get in the way of a launch,
    so do your best to isolate the Minotaur. Pay very close attention
    to where the soldiers are, so you don't accidentally kill one of them.
    
    This challenge is quite tricky but you should be able to get it with
    a bit of practice and some luck.
    
       ------------
       Challenge 5:
       ------------
    
    The fifth challenge is to shoot all of the undead soldiers and avoid
    the human soldiers.
    
    When you start this challenge, you will see a large crossbow on your
    platform and a platform in the distance. On the outer edge of the
    platform, a group of undead soldiers are walking in a circle. On the
    inside of the platform, a smaller group of human soldiers are walking
    in a circle.
    
    This challenge is all about patience. Since you have no time limit,
    take as much time as you need. Walk up to the crossbow and hold R2.
    Look at the platform in the distance and think of it as a clock.
    Wait for an undead soldier to get to about 2 o' clock and then pull
    back the crossbow as far as it can go. The arrow should hit an
    undead soldier.
    
    If you didn't hit the target, adjust the timing a bit and you should
    hit. If you do hit the target, then just repeat the process for the
    rest of the enemies. This challenge is pretty easy, so you should be
    able to beat it with a bit practice.
    
       ------------
       Challenge 6:
       ------------
    
    The sixth challenge is to get to the middle of the end platform
    before time runs out.
    
    This challenge seems hard at first but there is a trick to it.
    The main issue with this challenge is time. You have to cross the
    floating platforms before time runs out. The only problem is that
    there are archers stationed on every other floating platform.
    
    The best thing to do here; to save time and reduce the difficulty;
    is to use Hermes Stomp (jump into the air and press R1) to kill the
    archers as you cross the platforms. Stomp on each archer as you go
    until you reach the large platform at the end. Ignore the last four
    archers and roll into the center of the platform and you will beat
    the challenge.
    
    This challenge takes a little bit of practice but it really isn't
    as hard as it first appears.
    
       ------------
       Challenge 7:
       ------------
    
    The seventh challenge is to kill all of the enemies on the platform
    without getting hit. There is also a time limit.
    
    The first thing to note about this challenge is that the time limit
    is very generous. The main difficulty here is not getting hit and
    this is a bit easier than it sounds.
    
    Start off the battle by jumping into the air and using Lance Of The
    Furies. This should send most of the enemies flying (hopefully off
    of the platform). Use Plume Of Prometheus to kill a couple of the
    soldiers and then use another Lance Of The Furies (air) to scatter
    your enemies again. Try not to overuse LOTF because it takes a few
    seconds to recover after the move.
    
    The soldiers shouldn't pose much of a threat now. The two Minotaur
    are a little harder. You can either use LOTF or Apollo's Offensive
    to take them out.
    
    This challenge isn't too difficult. You should be able to beat it
    in a few tries.
    
       ------------
       Challenge 8:
       ------------
    
    The eighth challenge is to kill all of the enemies that spawn on
    the platform.
    
    This is the hardest challenge by far. You have to defeat wave
    after wave of undead soldiers and gorgons without magic. The
    soldiers aren't too much of a threat but the gorgons will
    drive you nuts.
    
    Start off the battle by jumping into the air and using Lance Of
    The Furies. Once your enemies are knocked back, it's time for a
    fight. You want to spend most, if not all, of this battle dodging.
    Dodge rolls are your friend and will keep you from being turned
    to stone.
    
    One helpful move I found was to use Achilles' Flip (do a dodge roll
    and then press X) whenever the gorgons try to turn you to stone.
    What happens is that you dodge past the gaze and then attack random
    enemies around the platform. You can even chain together a bunch of
    Achilles' Flips to continually dodge attacks and deal out some pain
    of your own. Also, the soldiers can be turned to stone by the
    gorgons, so the soldiers won't pose much of a threat.
    
    You can also use Lance Of The Furies (air) if you want to clear
    out some enemies. I wouldn't rely on this too heavily but it can
    be helpful. If you do use LOTF during the fight, there are a few
    things you should be careful of.
    
    First, NEVER use LOTF when the gorgons do their gaze attack. If
    you are turned to stone while you are airborne, it's an insta-kill.
    Second, it takes a few seconds to recover after using LOTF. This
    gives enemies time to sneak up on you and attack. Be ready to dodge
    roll away. Again, LOTF is very useful but it has its drawbacks.
    
    This battle will be long and tiring but eventually all of the
    soldiers will die off. Kill off a few more waves of gorgons and
    you beat the challenge. Again, this challenge is very hard and
    takes lots of trial and error but with practice, patience, and
    a little luck, you will emerge victorious.
    
       ------------
       Challenge 9:
       ------------
    
    The ninth challenge is to kill 4 Cyclops before time runs out.
    
    This challenge really isn't that hard. You have 2 minutes to kill
    4 Cyclops, while avoiding two Jackals. Dodge around the Jackals
    and attack the Cyclops from a distance. Plume Of Prometheus is a
    good combo to take down its health fast. As long as you evade the
    Jackals, you should be able to beat this challenge rather quickly.
    
       -------------
       Challenge 10:
       -------------
    
    The final challenge is to kill a bunch of enemies to reach a
    platform floating high above.
    
    This challenge is not too difficult if you know what to do.
    Jump to the second platform and you will have to fight waves
    of evil dogs and Jackals. As you kill them, the platform will rise.
    
    The best strategy is do an Achilles' Flip and then (while you're
    in the air) do a Cyclone Of Chaos. As soon as you land, do another
    Achilles' Flip and then continue the pattern. This chain will really
    decimate your enemies but you have to be careful. The platform is
    small, so be aware of where you are and where your initial dodge
    roll will take you.
    
    Lance Of The Furies (air) helps as well but it doesn't work too
    well on the Jackals. If you have Rage Of The Gods, wait until you
    can see the bottom of the platform above and then activate it.
    Wail on your enemies for a bit, then return to the Achilles'
    Flip chain.
    
    As soon as you can, jump to the next floating platform and you
    will beat the last challenge. If you are aware of your surroundings
    and use the Achilles' Flip chain, you should beat this challenge
    in no time.
