    4: Walk-through
    
    
    1: Rhodes
    
    Statue and the Buttons
    
    Solution:
    Pull the statue on to the button. The door will open. Now press and hold
    R1+X to kick the statue through the door. Now you must stand on the button
    and quickly roll forward through the gate. Place the statue on button two
    then go through the door.
    
    Urn of Gaia
    
    Solution:
    This urn is found on the first level of the game,
    Rhodes. In the puzzle room with a button on one side
    of the door, then the door, and finally a button on
    the other side of the door. Within that room, there's
    a block underneath a statue bird. Break the bird and
    push the block to the button so Kratos is facing and
    standing on the button; and the block is between you
    and the door.
    
    Once the button is pushed down, the door should be open.
    Charge up your kick and can kick it into the next room.
    From there, make sure the door is open all of the way 
    and evade underneath the door using the right analog stick. 
    Kratos should do a roll. Now at this point, push the block to the
    furthest point to the right. Now, simply jump atop the
    block and jump onto the ledge with three chests. Grab
    your well-earned treasures.
    
    Thanks to Voodoo
    
    Pendulum and the Beams
    
    Solution:
    Climb the ladder and pull the switch. Drop down and beat the crap out of
    the pendulum. Quickly climb the ladder, pull the switch again, and get
    on the rope and use the pendulum to make your way past the beams.
    
    
    Thanks to Chako for telling me to pull the switch again
    
    2: Typhons Cavern
    
    Soldiers and Fire
    
    Solution:
    Throw them in the fire(press O,Square) to make the chests appear.
    
    Prometheus
    
    Solution:
    You must first attack him with your weapon. When he falls, leave him.
    Progress with the story until you get Typhons Bane. Shoot him down with it.
    
    3: Temple of Lahkekis
    
    Dead Body
    
    Solution:
    In this room you see skeletons everywhere, wait a minute, thereís a body too.
    They are hanging from the ceiling. You must do jump attacks to knock the body
    down. Once he is down bring him with you too the elevator. Go down, and
    put him on the button. Pull the switch all the way back, now run and roll
    through the gates. This is the only hard puzzle too me.
    
    Hidden Block
    
    Solution: Once you have killed everything, you will notice a hard to 
    reach ledge. Smash the statue to reveal a block. Push this block to the ledge
    and jump on it. From here jump to the top.
    
    
    4: Steeds of Time
    
    Four Colored Levers
    
    Solution:
    There are 4 levers that are colored green, yellow, blue, and red.
    
    Green: Rotate the lever, turn left and climb up the wall. Hit R1 by the door
    
    
    Yellow: Rotate the lever, turn left and climb up. Use the grapple bird,Hit R1 
    
    
    Red: Rotate lever, turn right and climb up. Hit R1.
    
    Blue: Iím sensing a pattern here. Rotate lever,turn right and climb up.
    you know what to do.
    
    
    Now where all four levers were is one more switch. Hit R1 and do the commands.
    Damn those horses are strong.
    
    5: Divine Pools
    
    Amulet of the Fates
    
    Solution:
    Drag the statue all the way back to reveal a hole. Swim to the other side
    and walk up to the statue for a scene. Kick ass, you can now slow down time.
    Go back through the hole and stand on the button in the back of the room.
    When the platforms have risen press L1+R1 to slow down time(you are timed now).
    Jump across them during this slow-time state. Now at the top thereís a
    button. Stand on it and freeze time. The statues hands will lower. Stand on
    the hands for a cutscene.
    
    
    6: Destinyís Atrium
    
    2 beams, 2 Statues
    
    Solution:
    There are 2 statues; you need to block the beams with them. Itís simple.
    
    1. On the left side, there is a statue. Drag it in front of the beam.
    
    
    2. On the right side is a statue, a switch and a platform. I got an idea.
    A ledge is blocking the statues path toward the beam. Put said statue on the
    platform and pull the switch. Jump up to the platform and charge kick the  
    statue on to the ledge. From there just drag it in font of beam number 2.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ALERT: Some people have ran into a glitch. This is what occurs.
    The barrier is removed after completing the puzzle. The problem is
    that when you go on to the next area, it will never load. Here are suggestions.
    
    1. Restart from the last checkpoint.
    2. Get a new copy of the game.
    3. Restart the game.
    4. Clean the lens on your PS2.
    5. It might be the bootleg copy if you are using one.
    
    If these don't work then I don't know what to tell you.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    7: Forgotten Ruins
    
    Dead Body and the River
    
    Solution:
    Go to the right wall and bust it down. Same thing for the left wall.
    By the right wall is a dead body. pick him up and Place him in the river.
    Run to the other side and pick him up when he floats by. Put him on the button.
    Now just stand on the center button.
    
    Rotating Platforms
    
    Solution:Keep on turning the crank while fighting enemies. When the platform
    is close enough, jump to the next platform. Repeat this process twice.
    
    Barely Alive
    
    Solution:
    There is a guy who is almost dead. First take out the Gorgon. Once she is dead
    pick up the body and place him on the moving part of the floor. It is past
    the Gorgon. Once he is on there, the machine will grind his ass up. Poor guy,
    we hardly knew him.
    
    
    
    8: After Euryale
    
    Grapple points
    
    Solution:
    This may look like a complicated puzzle, but it isnít! It just happens
    to be VERY long! You must Turn the first turnstile (white color) all the way
    around until the large pillar stops. Jump to the lever across from the
    turnstile and activate it. Now quickly activate the Amulet of the Fates
    and swim down to the newly opened gate, under the water to the other side.
    Once the gate quickly closes, stay under water and activate the lever next
    to where the gate shut just in case. Swim up to the top and turn the turnstile
    until the large pillar stops. Swim down and activate the other lever in the
    water. As the double gates open, swim inside and use a lightly charged
    dash to make it to the other end of the gate before it shuts. This is annoying.
    Swim up to the top and turn the turnstile until the large pillar stops.
    
    Swim back down and find the wooden door in the water on the right.
    Use another charged dash move to destroy the door. Swim up and turn the 
    turnstile until the large pillar stops. Now approach the last lever(about time)
    across the turnstile and activate it to open a doorway above. Enter the
    nearby doorway and turn right to an open arena. Approach the lever and
    turn it to trigger an enemy battle. Once the area is cleared, you must
    turn the turnstile until the large pillar stops.
    
    Get ready, this is hard. It is probably going to you take a few tries.
    Once you let go, this particular pillar will slowly start going back down
    after a few seconds. Activate the Amulet and quickly exit to the ladder
    and head up to the top and step on the button. By this time, the Amulet
    runs out, so activate it again and then start jumping and swinging from
    pillar to pillar. The third pillar is the one that is slowly going down
    so BE QUICK when swinging around each pillar! Swing past all five of the
    pillars to complete this puzzle! WOOHOO!

    Ceilings Coming Down
    
    Solution:
    Fight all the dogs and tap O when prompted. Each successful time, the gate will
    open up a little. Repeat this 3-4 times and then go through the door.
    
    9: Hallway of Atropos
    
    Take Me Higher
    
    Solution:
    There are 2 statues. Put one on the elevator and raise it up with the switch.
    Take the other statue and put it underneath the elevator. Lower it.
    Climb this mess to the top.
    
    10: Edge of Creation
    
    Vines
    
    Solution:
    Kill everything first. There a hard to button on the roots. Step on it and
    slow down time. Go across. Repeat this process twice.
    
    
    11: Courtyard
    
    Perseus' Shield
    
    Solution:
    climb back up the ladder; go to your right, and then back to the wall for
    a different statue. Put the shield in its hand. Bring it down and place it
    on the platform. Raise it up to block the beam. Block the other yourself
    with the Golden Fleece.
    
    
    12: Atlas
    
    2 Stones
    
    Solution:
    Bring one to the top of the ramp and place the other underneath the ramp.
    Push the statues on top of each other. Bring the stones to the ledge,
    jump up, and grab the statue and bring it to the next ledge.
    
    
    
    13: Palace of the Fates
    
    Spikes and Doors
    
    Solution:
    Watch out for the spikes and kill the birds. When the door with a moveable
    wall opens,pull it back. There are a few red orb chests too. I know its hard,
    but try to avoid the birds and spikes.
    
    
    Skeletons and the Ceiling
    
    Solution:
    This is similar to the dog puzzle. Kill the skeletons and tap O by the chains
    to lower the platform and avoid the spikes. Once at the bottom go through the
    door. Tap O to raise this door. Damn those skeletons are annoying.
    
    
    
    14: Garden of the Gods
    
    Sacrifice by Fire
    
    Solution:
    Beat on the sirens until the O prompt comes up. Instead pull the switch
    and fry the bitch. I can rhyme. Repeat this twice. Then go through the door.
    
    
    
    Frozen Eagle
    
    Solution:
    First thing to do is to jump down to the eagle statue. Behind the
    statue is a lever that makes the eagle statue breathe fire every time
    you pull it. Activate the lever to melt the ice wall across from it to
    reveal a large globe-like mirror. Do not grab the mirror yet! There is more.
    Jump to the top and look for the wall that you can scale. Its on the left side.
    Scale the wall to the top and then start scaling the ceiling.
    
    There are a couple of icicle stalactites on the ceiling that you can
    attack. The only stalactite that you need to destroy is the one that is
    directly above the entrance doorway that you came from. Once the icicle
    stalactite is destroyed; it will reveal a light source beam from above.
    Jump down and grab the mirror and drag it under the light beam. Notice
    how the light beam is shining towards the symbol on the left side when
    you place the mirror there? You need to somehow reflect that light!
    Make your way towards the three levers. Each lever rotates the symbols
    in a circular direction. When you grab the lever, the camera angle will
    show you the symbol in the middle. Rotate all three levers until you
    can match the symbol of a big fat half moon. When done correctly, the
    light will reflect and melt all the ice off the eagle statue. GOOD JOB!
    
    Now jump to the statue and grab the turnstile. When you turn the lever,
    you can position the statue towards each ice wall and melt the ice off
    (by activating the lever behind the statue). The only ice wall that you
    really need to melt is the exit door. If you want to melt the rest of
    the ice walls, that's up to you. You'll find lots of chests (one of
    them has a Phoenix Feather) and some un-frozen minotaurs. When you're
    done melting all the ice, exit the room to the next area.

    15: Atropos' Auditorium
    
    "I will not let you meet the Sisters"
    
    Solution:
    Drag the statue with you to the gate. Pull the lever and place the statue
    underneath the gate. Go through the picture, freeze time, and grab
    the translator.
    
    Fly Up
    
    Solution:
    Rotate switch, jump up, pull switch, drop down, rotate switch, and glide up.
    Attach your blades to the ceiling.
    
    16: Phoenix Area
    
    Spikes
    
    Solution:
    Go pull the switch and examine the dead guy. There is a wall that can be
    broken at the northwest screen. A time statue is there. Pull the switch, rotate
    this lever around ONE time, freeze time, and jump across the ledges. Do it fast
    
    Fire and the statue
    
    Solution:
    Just keep moving the statue forward and stay behind it at all times. This will
    avoid damage from the fire. Use jump attacks to kill the birds and short combos
    to kill the other guys. Just keep heading toward the lever with the statue.
    Put it in front of the raised areas so the fire wall won't push it back.
    Then move the statue onto the left floor button, when the fire stops,
    you must stand on the right button and grapple(R1) to get out of there.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Titan Mode:
    
    A safe way to do this is too stay back and use the hammers L1+Triangle move.
    YouTube Shinobiers Titan Mode videos to see how to effectively do this or
    read Loud Wallys Hammer FAQ. Both are great guides to use for help.
    Then move the statue onto the left floor button, when the fire stops,
    you must stand on the right button and grapple(R1) to get out of there.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Chain and the pillar
    
    Solution:
    Activate the lever to raise a large wall. Scale that wall to the top
    and then scale the ceiling. Go to the second chain and cut it down to
    reveal a pillar. Jump down and activate the lever again to lower the
    wall and make some enemies appear. Kill the exploding soldiers and then
    grab the pillar. Place the pillar halfway through the wall. Its very tricky.
    When you activate the lever again, the pillar will stop the wall halfway
    as it rises up. If it doesn't, try again. Jump up to the top of the rising wall
    and then drag the pillar away to make the wall rise up all the way.
    Now place the pillar near the metal door and jump on top of it.
    Destroy the large chain above the door to lower it. Use triangle.
    Now head for the nearby turnstile and rotate it all the way. Once
    that's done, go down the hall and rotate the next turnstile until a
    doorway opens up.
    
    Kraken
    
    Solution:
    first keep attacking his tentacles. eventually he will raise his tentacle
    and you will see a button underneath. pick up the body and put it there.
    This will cause the vent to release the steam or whatever it is.
    Glide unto his face and keep attacking him. Triangle attacks work well.
    Eventually he will put his tentacle into the vent. Now you must
    climb up his tentacle and keep attacking the part of his body that
    is in the way. it'll trigger a mini-game. Repeat this. Then stun both arms
    and pull the switch. Now that death was cool.
    
    
    17: Temple of the fates
    
    Bells
    
    Solution:
    You have to ring both of the bells at the same time. How fun. Jump and
    grapple back to the top of the pedestal and press the R1 Button to get
    the bell ringer to slam the bell. Quickly activate the Amulet and then
    glide to the other bell, Hit RI to ring the bell with the platform.
    to manually ring the other bell. If done correctly, the statue face
    will become partially cracked. Now jump down to the turnstile and
    rotate the pedestal so that the bell ringer is in FRONT of the statue
    face. GO back to the top and activate the bell ringer to smash the
    statues face to reveal a new path. Enter the next area to a circular
    room. Open the chest on the left and then open the door.

    Clotho
    
    Phase 1:
    Go to the left side and attack the tentacle, rotate the switch.
    Go up there, climb the ceiling to the other side(Clotho will grab you
    on the way, shake the joystick left and right to free yourself) and break 
    the arms that are caught in the gate. Drop down and rotate the switch. 
    Go back up and climb the chain. On to phase 2.
    
    Phase 2:
    you need to trap the 3 arms. One gets locked in the trap door
    and the other 2 get pinned with the blades hanging above. This is easy.
    two are simple, but for the third, you need to pull the lever on the right side
    that has the urn above it. Using that lever you have to hook the last 
    hanging blade and then drag it over to the final arm. After you get all 
    three arms out of the way,climb the rope from the last blade and 
    enter the Top rim. Prepare for a showdown with fatso, I mean Clotho.
    
    Phase 3:
    On the top rim, Clotho is immune to any attack. In order to beat her,
    knock out both arms and then rotate the levers so that you can pick up
    the swinging blade. Use R1 to turn the blade so the edge is facing Clotho.
    Get behind the blade and press R1. You then ram the blade into Clothoís
    head during a button sequence mini-game
    
    
    The Threads
    
    Solution:
    Pull the thread to the right of the center one. Slow time and make your way 
    to the time portal.
