About Me:
=-=-=-=-=

Hello, everyone. My name is David DeGregorio and I am a sophomore in 
college. I have recently decided to start writing FAQ's for my 
favorite games, starting with my last two FAQs on Shadow Of The 
Colossus and God Of War. God Of War 2 is an amazing game and improved 
on the original in so many ways. Therefore, I decided to follow up my 
last FAQ with this one. 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 update as 
soon as I possibly can (and I'm not busy usually so it won't take 
long). Also, if you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc. just 
email me and I will email back. I check my email every day. It doesn't 
even have to be about the game. I will take any emails you send me. 
Anyway, I usually start to ramble around this time so I will get back 
on track.

=-=-=-=-=
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 2. Buy it, rent it, 
or borrow it from a friend if you have to, however you will need the 
game to use this guide.

Pop the disc into your system and you're ready to go. You are once 
again in control of Kratos (the new god of war) and, if possible, he 
is even more badass than the first game. Anyway, he decimates his 
enemies with the blades chained to his wrists. Get ready to unleash 
your inner demon.

   Rhodes:
   =-=-=-=

Welcome back to Kratos' life. It seems he's not too happy being the god 
of war. So, now it's time for another brutal and satisfying adventure.

This first part is a tutorial to get you used to the game. You still 
have all of your power, so take out the soldiers in the room using 
whatever attacks you like. Like the previous game, God Of War 2 has a 
simple but deep combat system. Take your time to explore all the combat 
possibilities.

When the soldiers are all dead, head to the door on the right. Press 
R1, then rapidly press circle to open it. Go down the hall, killing 
more soldiers. At the end of the hall, the Colossus Of Rhodes will 
punch a hole in the wall to your left. Go through and you will see a 
chest.

Like the previous game, there are a few types of chests. Green 
replenishes health, blue replenishes magic, and red gives you blood 
orbs which are used to upgrade weapons and magic. There are also chests 
that change color (this means you can choose what you want from the 
chest) and chests with no color. These chests either contain red orbs, 
Phoenix Feathers (upgrade magic after you gather six of these), or 
Gorgon's Eyes (upgrade health after you gather six of these).

Open this chest for health and climb the ladder to your right. Jump 
down to the area in front of you.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
             Colossus Of Rhodes: Part 1
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This is a fairly easy fight. The boss three different attacks. First, 
the boss will slam its palm on the ground. Simply roll to avoid this. 
Next, it wall grab one of the archers on the top of the right wall and 
throw it at you. The boss will only throw the archer on the left side 
of the area so just stay on the right and you won't get hit. The last 
attack is when it brings back both hands and slams the ground with two 
giant fists. Double jump to avoid the shockwave. It will also yell at 
you randomly but this does nothing. Soldiers will try to attack you 
throughout this fight but they still don't pose a threat. Kill them if 
they get in the way. Now, to damage the boss, wait until it does the 
palm smash attack or the fist shockwave attack. After you avoid it, 
attack the hand of the colossus. Red orbs will pour out. Continue 
attacking the hand after it attacks and eventually it will be stunned. 
You will know this when green and blue orbs pour out of the colossus 
and the camera zooms in for a quick scene. Now, while its stunned, head 
left and jump up to the platform with the catapult. Open the chest for 
health or magic and press R1 near the catapult to launch a rock. Press 
R1 near the catapult again to climb into it. Rapidly press circle to 
launch yourself at the colossus and start a button-press sequence. 
Press the buttons that appear onscreen and you will do some damage to 
the colossus. However, you will be flung a short distance away.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

You will land in a bathhouse. Slash through the screen on the left for 
red orbs. Behind the other screen are two women. Press circle to 
"interact" with them. Press the onscreen buttons for a ton of orbs. You 
can play again if you want but it won't give you any more orbs.

In the middle of the bathhouse, jump into the water and press square to 
dive. Swim down the passage. Hold R1 and release to do a swim dash and 
break through the grate. Press X to surface and swim right until you 
reach a ladder. Climb it and save your game.

Pull the lever next to the save point. A grapple point will now be 
available. Double jump and press R1 to swing from the grapple point. 
Jump to the other side and climb the ledges. Open the door to the next 
area.

Kill all of the soldiers and walk forward. Climb the ladder and a giant 
foot will try to stomp on you. Rapidly press circle to fend of the 
foot. Kill the remaining soldiers and go left. Open the chests for red 
orbs and health or magic. Now, start climbing the wall.

Head left on the wall and jump down onto the ledge for some red orbs. 
Return to the wall and climb to the top.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
            Colossus Of Rhodes: Part 2
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The colossus is back and you have to take it on again. Jump down to the 
platform below you and swing to the area on the right. The colossus has 
some new attacks this time. It will slam its right fist (your left) 
into the platform to try and crush you. Roll right to avoid this. Try 
not to go to the left or right sides of the platform or the colossus 
will punch you (if you are on the left side it will be the left arm and 
if you're on the right t will be the right arm). This is a fast attack 
and hard to avoid so just stay in the middle of the area. He will also 
swipe his left hand across the platform. You can roll forward to avoid 
this. He will yell again but it still does nothing. His last attack is 
when he slams the platform with both hands. Double jump to avoid the 
shockwave. Now, to damage him. You can attack the hand that lies 
dormant in front of you but you have to be wary of his other hand. I 
recommend waiting for him to do the fist slam attack and roll to the 
right. (If you roll to the left you will get hit when he brings his arm 
back.) Once you avoid it, attack his fist. After a few hits, he will 
get stunned and orbs will pour out. Avoid the double fist slam and 
continue attacking. Once you have stunned the colossus three times, a 
circle will appear above its arm. Swing over to the area where his arm 
is and press circle. An action sequence will take place, so press the 
corresponding buttons and you will damage it. Stun the colossus three 
more times and the circle will appear again. Go through another action 
sequence and you will be flung far away again.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

In this next area, open the chest for magic if you want and open the 
door atop the ledge. Walk down the hallway and turn right, avoiding the 
arrows from the archers. Save your game.

Back up a bit and take aright down the hallway. Kill the soldiers and 
enter the next room. To the left is a block with a bird on top. Destroy 
the bird and use R1 to push the block onto the switch. The gate will 
open. Hold R1 and X to kick the block onto the next switch. Quickly 
roll underneath the gate before it closes.

Ignore the open gate in front of you and push/kick the block right. 
There is a hallway here and it may look confusing but it is quite 
simple. In front of you is a dead end. The door at the front end (to 
the left) is block by a gate. Behind you is another dead end. The wall 
at the south end (to the left) leads back into the room where you got 
the block. You don't need to go there so don't. Quite simple isn't it.

Anyway, push the block to the north end of the room and you will notice 
three chests high up. You can't reach them unless you use the block. 
Jump onto the ledge and open the chests for red orbs and the Urn Of 
Gaia. Now bring the block back to the gate you ignored earlier.

Place the block on the switch and head under the gate. Open the chest 
for health and defeat the soldiers and archers. Open the red orb chest 
on your left. Step onto the elevator and pull the lever.

At the top, walk forward and the colossus will look through the window. 
Slash the eye and go through the opening for a scene. Now you have to 
get to the Blade Of Olympus.

Climb up the ledges on the wall to your right and kill the soldiers. 
Kill the archers and walk to the door. Kill the archers and soldiers 
here and kick open the door. Open the chest for health and smash 
through the window.

Jump down and kill all the enemies. When they are all dead, go right 
and climb the ladder. You are back where you smashed the window. Now 
you can balance across the beams. Double jump to the right and open the 
chests with red orbs.

Jump back to the beams and go forward. Save at the save point.

Climb the ladder and enter the room. Slide down the chain and defeat 
the soldiers. Open the chests for health and magic. Open the door 
forward. Quickly cross the bridge because the colossus will destroy it.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
            Colossus Of Rhodes: Part 3
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The important thing to remember about this fight is that you need to 
make time to store your powers into the Blade Of Olympus. The colossus 
won't give you this time easily, so you have to stun it to be able to 
store your powers. The colossus has a few new attacks. The first one to 
note is the shockwave attack that it does with its damaged arm. Snaking 
pathways will appear in the earth and fire will erupt from them. The 
pathways will always appear in the same spots so find a safe spot and 
avoid the fire. Next, the colossus will smash the ground with a fist. 
Jump to avoid the shockwave. The boss will also do a swipe with its 
left (your right) arm. Roll to avoid this. The right arm (your left) is 
more dangerous. It will perform a swipe combo. When you see this, roll 
to avoid the swipes and jump to avoid the shockwave. Later in the 
battle, the Colossus will shoot fire out of the damaged arm. Roll away 
from it to avoid this attack. Now, to damage it. Run up to it and slash 
anywhere on its body. You can use Poseidon's Rage to damage it faster. 
Soon it will be stunned, so run to the sword and pour your experience 
into the sword. Jump right after to avoid the shockwave attack. Now, 
run up to the boss and attack it some more. Use your spell and it will 
be stunned again. This time, pour your magic into the blade. The boss 
will get nasty at this point and you have no magic which is why we 
saved a little surprise for the boss. To the right is the hand you 
knocked off. Tap R1 to launch this at the boss for an easy stun. Now, 
pour your health into the sword. You will have half of your previous 
health. Now that you have very little power left, you gain the Blade Of 
Olympus. This is not a fair trade in my opinion but you have to do 
this. You will shoot the colossus with a beam from the sword and it 
will lean forward. Now it will only attack with flames from its damaged 
arm. Attack the colossus with the sword and roll to avoid the lames. Or 
you could stand at a distance and press L1 plus triangle to hurt it. 
Any way you want to hurt it, stun it three times and press circle for a 
quick scene.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now you are inside the colossus. Kill the soldiers in front of you and 
start moving along the circular walkway. Jump over the gaps and go 
underneath the glowing blue beam. Jump over the next one. (It will hurt 
you if you touch it.) Continue until your path is obstructed by another 
beam. Head left and press R1 to destroy all the blue beams on this 
level. Jump the next gap and climb the side of the colossus. 

Head left until you reach the next pathway. Double jump to grab the 
rope and make your way across to the next walkway. Press R1 to drop 
down and continue along the path, killing the next batch of soldiers. 
Jump to the next ledge and head left across the beam.

The way forward is blocked, so head left and you will be at the 
intersection of the blue beams. Slash off the chain on the beam 
intersection and press R1 to destroy the beams in this section. Now the 
path forward is unblocked, so head back across the beam, turn left, and 
continue forward.

Go down the walkway, jump the gap and kill the soldiers. Climb the side 
of the wall to the next ledge and kill more soldiers. At this point it 
looks like you can't go further but there is a way. Hug the side of the 
wall and head left around the circle. When you reach the beam, press R1 
to hang down. Shimmy left under the beam and pull yourself up.

Slash off the three chains and press R1 to destroy more beams. Climb 
the netting to your left to get a Gorgon's Eye. Climb back down and 
climb the rope to the next level.

Jump from platform to platform until you reach a ladder. Climb it and 
you will be at the top of the colossus. Pull the lever to lower a giant 
metal pillar. Descend the ladder and hit it with your blade. Now pull 
the lever again and it will raise the pendulum. Double jump and grab 
onto the rope.

Now, wait until the pendulum blocks the blue beam and then move 
forward. Stay behind the pendulum and move when it blocks the second 
beam. Jump down to the walkway and head forward, jumping over the blue 
beam. At the end, slash off all the chains and destroy the final beam 
pillar. The mouth of the colossus will open, so rush to it and a scene 
will play.

Kratos is hurt badly, so limp towards the blade. A scene will play when 
you get close.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                                Zeus
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This isn't much of a battle because you can barely move and Zeus is 
quite powerful. You are destined to lose this fight, so sit back and 
watch the next scene.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Kratos has escaped from death before and he can do it again. You are in 
the underworld once again but death is much easier to thwart this time. 
Hands pop out of the wall and try to kill you, so slash them. Each one 
gives you a ton of health. It is very hard to be killed by the hands 
because they don't do that much damage. Climb the side of the wall, 
jump the gap to the right, and climb up. Jump straight up to the next 
part of the wall. Climb to the top and you will escape the underworld. 
This is a lot easier than the spinning blades of the last game.

Save your game at the save point.

Press R1 near one of the bodies for a scene. Walk to the Pegasus and 
press R1 for another scene.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
   Flight To The Lair Of The Titan:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

This is the first flying sequence in the game. The developers wanted to 
put a flying portion in the first game but it ended up getting cut. 
Anyway, during this part you are controlling the Pegasus that Kratos is 
riding on. Controls are pretty simple here. Use the left analog stick 
to move. Press square for light attacks and triangle for heavy attacks. 
You can move quickly right or left with L1 and R1. Also, you can press 
X for a dash attack that drains your magic a bit.

In this section, you are first tasked with defeating four griffins. Use 
light attack and they will fall quickly. After they are dead, you have 
to defeat a raven. Use your dash attack to attack from behind and press 
the corresponding buttons to snap the raven's neck.

When the raven is dead, a Dark Rider will appear. Avoid the purple 
blasts that he fires and you will be brought to the lair of the titan. 
To save some time guessing, the best ways to avoid his attacks are: 
Down (for the first blast), Left (second), Up (third), and just take 
the last blast head on (you should have enough health at this point and 
there's no real direction to avoid it).

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
   Lair Of The Titan:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

As you enter the cavern, fend off the harpies that attack you. After 
flying around for a bit, the Pegasus will be trapped underneath the 
titan's hand. You can't free it now, so jump down to the next path. 
Defeat the harpies and head right.

Open the chest for health and head directly towards the screen. You 
should grab onto the wall. Climb down the wall and open the chests to 
your left. The unmarked chest has a Gorgon's Eye. The other one has red 
orbs.

Return to the green chest and head left. Attack the finger to open the 
path forward. Run to the end and climb onto the wall. Climb down as far 
as you can go, killing enemies along the way, and head right. Jump the 
gap and climb upwards.

When you can't go any further, Kratos will latch onto the ceiling. 
That's right; you can climb onto ceilings now! Anyway, head right, go 
around the corner, and climb down the next wall. Head forward across 
the ceiling and down the wall on the right. Now you are on the ground 
again. Save your game and head forward.

Defeat the harpies and the Minotaur. Open the chest for health if you 
need it. Continue forward and open the chest for red orbs. Head back a 
little bit and you will see a cage hanging on a rope. Destroy it and 
grab the rope. Slide down to the next area.

Head forward, jump up to the next ledge, and go through the door. You 
are now outside. The door will close behind you. You can't go back for 
a while.

Kill the archers and the Minotaur here. Destroy the wooden structures 
for red orbs. When they're dead, jump onto the ledge on the right. Jump 
and pull yourself up to the next ledge. Shimmy left and jump up to the 
next area. There are chests here with health and red orbs.

Slide down the chain in front of you and walk down the stone arm to see 
what's up with the bird. Remember the tale of Prometheus? Well, you're 
about to see it firsthand. Attack the chain in front of Prometheus and 
he will fall. The chain remains unbroken though. He hangs suspended 
over a pit of fire. There's nothing you can do to help him at the 
moment, so jump onto the chain to your right and slide down.

Head forward and the camera will show you your next destination. Ignore 
the small ledges and continue forward until you reach the end of the 
path. Climb onto the wall. Kill the enemies that assault you and head 
right. Climb down and you will be back on solid ground. Kill the 
enemies and open the chest for red orbs.

Save your game. Head right and kill more enemies. Open the chest to 
your right for another Gorgon's Eye. Climb the wall as far as you can 
and jump straight up to reach the next climbing section. Kill the 
enemies, climb to the top, and enter the cavern. Open the chests for 
health and red orbs.

Continue forward and use the grapple point to reach the other side of 
the chasm. In front of you is a chest behind bars. You're probably 
wondering how to open this. I'll tell you. Head slightly right and you 
will see a rope. Slide down it to head back across the chasm.

This will cause the bars of the cage to lower temporarily, so grapple 
back across and open the chest for a Phoenix Feather. Continue down the 
path.

Eventually you will come to an open area. The pathway behind you will 
seal and a gorgon will attack. These aren't too hard. The gorgon will 
use its stone gaze attack. When this happens, roll twice to avoid it. 
The gorgon will then cease its attack, so slash at it. If you get 
caught in the gaze, shake the left analog stick back and forth to 
escape.

Kill the gorgon and two more will appear. Kill them and the harpies and 
you will be able to continue.

In front of you, there is a shiny stalagmite. Break it apart with your 
blades and head down the path you opened. Open the chests for health 
and red orbs. Save your game.

Head forward and you will see the titan's head. He will try to blow you 
off the platform. Wait until he stops blowing and takes a breath. Run 
left and hide behind the rock pillar. Harpies will try to attack you. 
Kill a few but pay attention to the titan. When it takes another 
breath, run left again and hide behind the small rock. Kill the harpies 
around you and continue to the next small rock when it's safe.

When the titan takes another breath, run as left as you can and hide 
behind the stone pillar. Continue forward a little, being careful not 
to walk into the titan's breath attack. When it takes another breath, 
run to the stone platform. There is another shiny rock here. Slash it 
and then press R1 to create a bridge to the titan's head.

Run across the bridge and press R1 to grab Typhon's Bane. This is a bow 
and it comes in handy right away. Target the titan's left eye and 
shoot. The titan is now blind. Run back across the bridge and it will 
crumble.

Kill all the enemies and shoot the archers down by Typhon. The seals 
will open. Head left and you will be near a bonfire. Enemies will 
attack. Instead of killing them, grab them and the bonfire will be 
automatically targeted. Press square to throw them into the fire. Once 
the fire is big enough, ice will melt on four chests in front of the 
fire. The enemies will stop spawning, so kill the remaining enemies and 
open the chests for red orbs and a Phoenix Feather.

Return to the previous platform. Head to the right and you will see 
shining lights on the stalactites. Shoot the cage with an arrow and a 
scene will show you where to go. Kill the archers and then grapple 
across to where you first saw the titan.

Destroy all the rocks for red orbs and backtrack a bit. Go back down 
the path, slide down the rope, and exit the cave. Slide down the wall, 
jump the gap, and slide down to the bottom.

Go to the broken bridge. Take out your bow and shoot the cage. Grapple 
across and you will find chests with red orbs and a Gorgon's Eye. 
Return to the other side, head left, and save your game.

Climb the wall to the top. Jump up the ledges to your right and open 
the chest if you need health. Shoot the cage with an arrow and a rope 
will drop. Climb the ledges and slide down the chain. You are back on 
the stone arm. Run to the hand and slide down the chain.

Shoot Prometheus down with a few arrows. You will gain Rage Of The 
Titans. Use it to defeat the enemies that appear. You can turn off Rage 
Of The Titans by tapping R3 and L3. Also, you do not need a full meter 
to activate it.

When they're dead, return to the ledges and jump up. Climb the rope and 
head to the topmost platform. Look to your left. There is a vertical 
chain here. Slide down and jump into the cave. Open the chests for red 
orbs and a Gorgon's Eye. Climb back up the chain.

On the wall to the north, you should see a part of the wall that is 
rough. You can climb on this, so jump up to it and start climbing. 
Climb to the top, head left, jump the gap, and climb down onto solid 
ground. In this cave are chests with red orbs and a Phoenix Feather. 
Return to the platform.

Double jump and grab the chain. Make your way across, killing enemies 
as you go. Jump down and open the gold chest. This replenishes Rage Of 
The Titans. Use it to break open the door and immediately turn it off.

Continue forward, kill the enemies, and grapple across the chasm. Go 
forward, kill more enemies, and save your game. Climb back to your 
Pegasus.

Use Rage Of The Titans to attack each finger. One by one, the fingers 
will move back. Attack them all and the hand will release the Pegasus. 
If you run out of Rage, attack the fingers normally to get your Rage 
back.

Press R1 next to the Pegasus and start the next flying sequence.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Dodge the blasts from the griffins and kill the harpies around you. 
When they're dead, it's time to take out another four griffins. These 
have riders that try to jump onto the Pegasus. Dodge and the griffin 
will be easier to defeat. There is a different action sequence if you 
initiate it while the enemy is still on the griffin.

Anyway, after you kill them, the Dark Rider will return. He isn't too 
hard of an opponent. Use light attacks to attack him from a distance. 
Whenever he attacks with the spear, dash away to the side and then dash 
back in while he's vulnerable. Watch out for his dash attack. It's best 
to stay above the rider in the air and continue attacking from a 
distance.

After a bit, the rider will go forward and shoot more blasts at you. 
Dodge them by going: Left (first blast), Down (second), Right (third), 
Up (fourth), and finally Left.

After this, the rider will slow down and an action sequence will take 
place. Press the corresponding buttons to slay the dark rider and land 
on the Isle of Creation.

   Isle Of Creation:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

You will start this part on the side of a wall. Climb up, transitioning 
from wall to ceiling to wall, until you reach the top. Head left and 
open the chests for red orbs and a Phoenix Feather. Head right this 
time. Save your game and climb the ladder.

At the top, latch onto the ceiling, go left a bit, and then climb up 
the broken bit of wall. Kill the enemies at the top. Head right, jump 
onto the ledge, and climb the next ladder.

In the next area, kill all of the dogs. There is a chest with health if 
you need it. Destroy all of the hanging skeletons for red orbs and open 
the chests in the back for more red orbs.

Near the chests with red orbs is a dead body. Press R1 to pick it up. 
Place it on the elevator on the left. Pull the lever to descend a 
level. Place the dead body on the button. Pull back the handle to open 
the other door. Let go and run through before it closes. Roll if you 
have to.

Turn left and walk forward. Press R1 to kick down the door. Go through 
and watch the scene. Afterwards, head right for a Gorgon's Eye. Head 
left next. Beware: the floor crumbles beneath you as you walk.

Head left and enter the next area. A scene will occur.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
                             Cerberus
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I don't really consider this a boss fight because it's not that tough 
of a battle and there's no real trick to it. (The Minotaur in the first 
game was more of a boss) The Cerberus has four attacks. It will shoot 
fireballs at you. It will rear back and try to pounce on you. Also, it 
will try to head-butt you with all three heads. Lastly, it will try to 
claw at you with one of its paws. Every single attack can be avoided by 
rolling. The head-butt attack is harder to avoid because it's faster 
but you can block it so it's not a threat. There will be dogs all 
around, trying to attack you. You can kick them towards the boss for 
damage or just take them out. It's your choice. To get through this 
easily, use Rage Of The Titans. When the circle appears over the boss' 
head, turn off Rage and press circle. Yellow orbs will pour out, so use 
Rage again and repeat until the beast is dead.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

When all the enemies are dead, destroy the statues for orbs. Replenish 
your health and magic with the chests and return to where the statues 
where. A stone block should have fallen when you destroyed one of the 
statues. Push it over to the platform where the Cerberus entered. Jump 
up and defeat the dogs. Open the red chest and save your game.

Head right and walk onto the narrow walkway. Climb down the wall and 
head left. Open the chests for health and red orbs. Climb the ladder 
and latch onto the ceiling. Head forward, killing enemies, and break 
the shiny object in front of you. Continue to the end of the roof and 
head left. Climb to the top of the walkway.

Kill the dogs and soldiers, then shoot down the archers. Head to the 
right until you can't go any further. Turn left and double jump to the 
other side. Head left and jump up the ledge into the next area. Open 
the chest for health or magic and head right.

Kill the enemies that appear. Walk onto the elevator and pull the lever 
to descend to the next level. Walk forward and you will have to battle 
with a siren.

The siren has two attacks. It will rush forward and claw at you. Roll 
to avoid this. Also, it will do a vocal attack that stuns you. If you 
see it charging up for this attack, run a safe distance away. If you 
are caught in this attack, shake the left analog stick back and forth 
to get back into battle. Attack the siren until the circle appears 
overhead. Press circle and the wall to the left will crack and two more 
sirens will appear.

Attack these sirens until the circle command appears again. The blast 
from the second siren will crack the wall some more and kill the other 
siren. More sirens will appear. Repeat a third time and wall will break 
and the way forward will open.

Instead of going through the hole, look to the right side of the room. 
There is a chain jutting from the wall. This is not merely decoration. 
Climb onto one of the platforms jutting from the columns next to the 
chain. Jump onto the chain and run to the end of it. Jump to the 
ceiling and latch on. Head forward, slash at the chain blocking your 
path to destroy it, and go forward. Drop down and you will find a chest 
with a Gorgon's Eye and a chest with red orbs.

Jump down and head through the hole. Replenish your magic and save your 
game.

Go forward, jump down onto the chain, and run down it to reach the 
steeds of time.

   The Steeds Of Time:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Continue to the end of the chain and turn left. Climb the wall until 
you reach the top. Open the chests for magic and health and head 
forward. At the end you will see a lever. Pull it and a rope will lower 
near the wall you climbed. Run over and slide down the rope to the 
other horse. You will see a man in front of a door. Run forward for a 
scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                             Theseus
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Phase 1: The first part of this battle is quite easy. Theseus doesn't 
have that many nasty attacks. Most of his attacks come from his 
scepter. He will try to stab you with his scepter. Roll to avoid this. 
He also has a combo with his scepter that can be avoided with a roll as 
well. He will also try to uppercut you with his scepter but a simple 
roll will dodge it easily. He will also plunge his scepter into the 
ground and make ice stalagmites rise from the ground. These are easily 
avoided by rolling away from Theseus. If he ever grabs you with his 
scepter, rotate the analog stick in the direction shown on the screen 
to avoid damage as well as stun the boss. The best way to fight Theseus 
is to fight from a distance. The scepter's range is far outmatched by 
your blades, so roll to a safe distance and start attacking. Use Rage 
to damage him faster. Roll away if he attacks and continue your 
assault. It shouldn't be long until he begins his second phase.

Phase 2: He will climb on top of the building and fight from a 
distance. His attacks are actually less effective in this phase. He 
will shoot one blast at you which can be dodged with a roll. He will 
also raise more of those ice stalagmites but they only appear on the 
edges of the area or in the exact center, so it's not too hard to 
avoid. Now, immediately shoot as many arrows as you can at Theseus. 
Roll to avoid hiss attacks and shoot some more. If you run out of 
magic, he will summon two Minotaur to kill you. Take them out for 
magic. If you are low on health, kill them with the mini-game for 
health orbs. When they are dead, focus on Theseus again and shoot lots 
of arrows. Halfway through this phase he will yell and resume his 
attacks. Now his blasts are comprised of three spheres instead of one. 
Keep shooting and kill two more Minotaur and Theseus will fall. Press 
circle to initiate another mini-game. This is perhaps the most brutal 
kill of the game so far.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Before going inside the room, head right, descend the stairs, and climb 
down the wall to reach chests with red orbs and a Gorgon's Eye. Return 
to the door.

Go inside the room. Open the chests for red orbs and health or magic. 
Read the book and head right. Climb the ladder and head forward. Open 
the chest for red orbs. Head back and ascend the stairs. Climb the 
stairs in the middle of this platform and jump to the ledge with the 
chest. Open it for red orbs and slide down the rope to reach the horse 
you were on before. Open the door and walk inside.

Use the key on the altar in front of you to receive Cronos' Rage. Test 
it on the enemies that spawn. You can string together a massive combo 
in this room just using this spell, especially since your magic will 
constantly replenish. My max combo was over three hundred here. When 
they're all dead, the door on the left and right will open.

Head out the left exit and climb the ladder. Head right, across the 
platform and go to the right side of the horse. Descend the stairs and 
open the chest for a Phoenix Feather. Return to the platform and jump 
up to the ledge for a chest with red orbs. Jump down and save your 
game. Run down the path on the left side of the horse to reach the 
front of the steeds.

There are four colored levers here. Ignore them for now and head left. 
Climb the wall and head right, down the small ledges. Open the chest 
for a Gorgon's Eye. Jump back up the ledges and take note of the 
glowing green energy field.

Return to the levers.

Rotate the green lever and the green circular device will open back on 
the green steed, revealing a switch. Quickly climb back up and press R1 
near the slowly-closing green device. The green energy will dissipate 
and a harpy will fly over to the blue steed. Climb back down to the 
levers.

This time, rotate the red lever, head right, and climb the wall on the 
right. Harpies will attack as you climb but ignore them for right now. 
Avoid them by jumping up the wall and press R1 near the red switch. The 
red energy will dissipate and the harpy will fly to the yellow steed. 
Kill the harpy enemies. Return to the levers.

Rotate the blue lever, and then quickly run to the right, climb the 
wall on the right, jump and use the harpy as a grapple point to get to 
the blue steed. Quickly jump up the platforms and press R1 near the 
device. The blue energy will dissipate. Return to the levers.

Rotate the yellow lever this time. Quickly run left, climb the wall, 
and grapple to the yellow steed using the harpy. Climb the wall and 
press R1 near the device. The yellow energy will dissipate. Kill the 
harpies and return to the levers.

Press R1 near the glowing dot to make the platform move. Press R1 at 
the front of the platform to start an action sequence. Rotate the left 
analog stick to the directions shown onscreen and a scene will occur.

Return to the save point and save your game. Jump from the top of this 
building down to the level below. Fight through the enemies and the way 
forward will be clear. Climb down to the chain and kill the enemy.

Run down the length of the chain until you reach the wall. Climb up and 
head right. Destroy the rock blocking the path and climb to the top. 
Head right and save your game.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
   The Temple Of Lahkesis:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Head forward into the area with the pools and fireflies. Kill the 
fireflies and look underneath the waterfall. The stone is cracked 
underneath it. Break it open to find a chest with red orbs. Jump up the 
ledges to the top and go right for another red orb chest. Head left 
this time and jump out the opening in the wall. Follow the narrow path, 
kill the firefly and start climbing the wall.

Go left as far as you can and jump the gap. On the other side is a 
ledge with two red orb chests and another chest with a Gorgon's Eye. 
Return to the wall.

Climb down and head right. Climb onto the wall again and follow it 
until you reach a cracked section. Break through and open the chest for 
a Phoenix Feather. Return to the ledge and head left this time. Open 
the red orb chest and open the door with R1.

The button in front of you will lower the statue's arms but you don't 
have time to reach it before they rise again. Ignore it for now. Jump 
off the left side of the bridge and head towards the screen. In the 
alcove are two chests containing a Gorgon's Eye and a Phoenix Feather. 
The button on the ground here raises the platforms. Again we don't have 
time to reach the platforms before they rise.

The lever in the back left is supposed to lower the gate but the dead 
body prevents that. What do you do? Go to the round thing in the middle 
of the room that has plants on it. On the south side is a handle. Pull 
it back to reveal a waterway. Swim down. Hold R1 and then release to 
perform a swim dash. Surface at the other end.

Press R1 near the statue to gain the Amulet of the Fates. By holding L1 
and pressing R1 you can stop time temporarily. Swim back through the 
passage and emerge in the previous room.

Step on the button and wait for the platforms to rise. Stop time and 
jump onto the second pillar on the right. Break the insignia on the 
right and it will reveal a chest with a Gorgon's eye. Return to the 
button, stop time again, and jump up to the bridge.

Run back to the other button and wait for the hands to lower. Stop time 
and run to the hands. Watch the scene. Attack the head and it will fall 
through the glass window. Before following it, open the chests on 
either side of the statue for a Phoenix feather and red orbs.

Jump out the window. Fight the enemies that appear, noting that you can 
use the amulet to stop time because of the statue's head.

Once they are all dead, destroy the statue's head and open the chest 
for health.

Head to the right for a chest with a Gorgon's Eye. To the left is a 
chest with red orbs. Slide down the ladder and head to the center of 
the room. A Cyclops will appear along with several boars.

You can kill the boars with a single grab attack which also nets you 
some yellow orbs. Kill all the boars and focus on the Cyclops now. It 
is best to stay at distance like you did with Theseus. Use Cronos' Rage 
and keep attacking. When the circle appears over its head, press it to 
cause some damage and gain health. When the first Cyclops is dead, two 
more appear.

Use Rage to kill them quicker. When they are both dead, open the chest 
for health or magic. Climb one of the ladders close to the statue.

On the right side, pull the statue out of its alcove. Pull the lever to 
lower the platform on the right. Push the statue onto the platform and 
pull the lever again to raise it. Jump onto the raised platform. Get 
behind the statue and kick it forward. It will fall near the giant 
statue's head. Push the statue into the little groove in the ground. 
One of the eye beams will be reflected back.

Grab the statue on the left and push it into the other groove. The way 
forward is now open. Jump down and walk forward. Save your game.

   The Bog Of The Forgotten:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Walk forward down the path. In the next area, hit the dead bodies with 
triangle attacks for red orbs and continue forward, avoiding the water. 
A scene will occur, followed by an action sequence. Press the onscreen 
buttons until you get to the clearing. It's time for another boss 
fight.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                      Barbarian King
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Phase 1: The barbarian king begins the first phase on his horse. Before 
doing anything, roll out of the way of the horse as it tries to ram 
you. The boss has a few attacks in this phase. The first is the horse 
ram which I mentioned above. Roll a bit early when the horse rears back 
and you will avoid this. Next, the barbarian will try to hit you with 
his hammer. Roll to avoid this. The last two attacks are when he shoots 
arrows at you. If it's a single arrow shot, roll to avoid it. If there 
are multiple arrow shots, block don't roll (otherwise you might roll 
into an arrow attack). At this stage, the barbarian is surrounded by 
souls. The souls will protect him, although they will drop magic orbs 
when attacked. Remain a safe distance away from the horse and roll to 
avoid the arrows. Use Cronos' Rage whenever he charges towards you, 
then roll out of the way. Attack from a distance and the souls will 
disappear gradually. When they're all gone, attack the horse for a bit 
and soon the circle command will appear overhead. Press it to kill the 
horse.

Phase 2: Now the barbarian king is on foot. He has a few new attacks. 
He will use a two-swing hammer combo to try to hit Kratos. Roll out of 
the way of this. Also, he will pound the ground with his hammer and 
create a shockwave. Jump over the shockwave and you're safe. The last 
attack is an energy wave, created when he jumps on his hammer. Jump or 
roll to avoid this. During this part of the battle, the barbarian king 
will not only try to attack you himself, he will summon more barbarians 
to help him out. When he disappears underground, he will appear in the 
middle of the platform and summon dead warriors. Watch out for the 
hammer swing when he summons the enemies because this can cause damage. 
Kill the undead warriors (it isn't too hard) and avoid the boss. Use 
Cronos' Rage to make it easier. When all the barbarians are dead, the 
next phase will begin.

Phase 3: The barbarian king will now grow to giant proportions by 
absorbing the souls. He will only attack using hammer combos which are 
always ended with a ground pound. Roll to avoid his attacks because you 
can't block them. Use Rage Of The Titans to make the battle easier. 
When that's all used up, attack him from a distance, avoiding his 
attacks. Keep pounding on him and he will shrink eventually.

Phase 4: This is the last phase of the battle. He will keep the energy 
wave move from phase 2 and deals out some new attacks. He will shoot 
souls out of his hammer. Roll towards him when he shoots, not before. 
Also, he will swing his hammer towards you. Roll to avoid this. Attack 
him from a safe distance and avoid his attacks. After you hit him 
several time, he will swing his hammer. Roll and continue to attack 
him. When the circle appears overhead, press it to start an action 
sequence. Press the right buttons and the battle will end.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After you defeat him, more barbarians will rise to challenge you. Test 
out your new weapon on them. Note that you cannot roll when the hammer 
is equipped. You can change weapons with R2 When they're dead, grapple 
to the next path and walk forward.

Kill the boars and enter the next area.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
   The Temple Of Euryale:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Double jump to the next platform. The door in front of you is 
inaccessible right now because it will turn you to stone if you walk 
near it. Down the left path is another locked door. Instead, head 
right, open the green chest for health, and save your game.

Continue forward, jump across the bog, and head forward some more. 
Examine the dead body for Euryale's key. Enemies will attack you. Kill 
them and return to the door that turned you to stone.

Defeat the skeletons here. Finish them with a circle attack or they 
will come back to life. You can also lure them to the door and turn 
them to stone. Hit them a few times while they're turned to stone and 
they will be destroyed.

Head left and defeat more skeletons. Open the chest for red orbs. Open 
the door with the key.

As soon as you head through the door, head directly right for a chest 
with a Gorgon's Eye. Open the health chest and continue forward.

A Cyclops will appear. A beast lord will be riding on top. Press circle 
near the Cyclops to throw off the rider. Kill this enemy first. Now 
focus on the Cyclops. Attack from a distance and eventually a circle 
will appear over its head. Play the button mini-game to gain a Cyclops 
Eye. Gather 20 of these for a treasure during bonus play.

Once the Cyclops is dead, two more beast riders appear. They will try 
to summon more Cyclops. If you want, let them summon Cyclops so you can 
gain more eyes. Kill them all and the way forward will be unsealed.

Move the block out of the way and push it to the left. We'll use that 
later. Open the gate and go forward. At the first corner, jump onto the 
stone block. Jump up and use triangle attacks to destroy the hanging 
stone. Open the chest that falls for a Phoenix Feather. It takes a few 
hits to destroy the block but you'll get it eventually. Now, destroy 
the other block for a chest with red orbs.

Continue down the path and head left at the fork. Destroy the enemies 
and open the chests for red and blue orbs.

Return to the fork and go straight. Jump down into the pit and defeat 
all the enemies. After they're dead, destroy the column in the middle 
of the room to open a grapple point. Press R1 to grapple to it. This is 
a different type of grapple point then you've seen before. Instead of 
swinging back and forth, you swing in a circle.

When you are near the high platform on the other side of the pit jump 
off the grapple point. Use the next two grapple points to reach the 
next area. Climb the ladder on the right and grab onto the vine. Climb 
across to the other side, killing enemies as you go. Open the chests 
for a Gorgon's Eye and red orbs.

Jump down and continue forward. Jump across the logs. Break the pillars 
on the left and right and kill the enemies that fall down. Approach the 
middle pillar and press R1. Knock down the pillar by alternating 
between L1 and R1. Kill the rest of the enemies and climb the ledge. To 
the left is a red orb chest and to the right is a chest with health.

Continue forward. Open the blue chest and jump into the circular room 
for another puzzle. The pressure switch will only open the door 
halfway, so we have to figure out a different method. Before you step 
off the pressure switch, take out your bow and target the vines above 
two chests to your right. This reveals a grapple point. Grapple up to 
the chests and open them for red orbs and a Gorgon's Eye.

Now back to the puzzle. Jump down and look left. There is a switch here 
too but it only opens the door halfway. The wall here is cracked so 
break it open. It still seems there's not much we can do. The door on 
the left is blocked by a gate. Open it with the lever on the right.

Defeat the enemies and destroy the wall here. Pick up the dead body. 
Instead of placing it on the button, drop it into the river. Go back to 
the other side and the dead body will wash up here. Pick it up and 
place it on the button. Step on the other button and roll through the 
gate before it closes.

Save your game. Go forward and open the green chest. Watch the cut 
scene and jump onto the first gear in front of you. Grab the handle and 
start to turn the gear. When you get halfway to the next gear, enemies 
will appear.

If you kill the enemies, you will get a moment to turn the handle some 
more, however it won't be long before more enemies appear. The best 
thing to do is to use Cronos' Rage to hold them off, turn the handle 
some, use the spell again, turn the handle, etc. If you stick to this 
pattern, you should reach the second gear easily and kill the enemies 
at the same time. Do the same thing on the next gear.

Jump to the third gear and then jump to solid ground. Run forward for 
another fight.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                        Rock Minotaur
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This enemy has three main attacks. First, it will pound the ground in 
front of it. Roll to avoid this attack. Secondly, the Minotaur will 
rotate in place while holding out its arms. Roll to avoid this as well. 
Lastly, the boss will pick up rocks and throw them at you. Yet again, 
roll to avoid this. Because all of its attacks can easily be dodged, 
the boss isn't too hard but it puts up a fight. Stand at a distance and 
attack with the blades. Watch for its attacks and roll in to attack it 
more personally. Use Rage Of The Titans to end the battle more quickly. 
When the circle appears over its head, press the onscreen buttons and 
kill it.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

When the Minotaur is dead, go up to the shiny tree and press R1 to make 
a bridge. Cross it and climb onto the vines. Go left and drop down to 
the next platform. Jump and grab the vine rope. Head left and kill the 
enemies that attack you. Press R1 to drop down to the next area. Kill 
any enemies that followed you.

Look to your right. There is a stone wall near the spinning wheel. Go 
near it and press R1 to open a somewhat-hidden door. Behind it is a 
statue with a glowing green pendent. You can use this to stop time. Do 
this and head left over the wheel.

Jump onto the conveyor belt and climb up the ledge for health. Jump 
down and head forward to another conveyor belt. To your left is a spiky 
death trap. To your right are a few eyes that shoot green beams. This 
will turn you into stone. Go right and enemies will appear. Attack them 
a bit but at the same time make your way to the end of the conveyor 
belt. The enemies can be turned to stone too, so use this to your 
advantage.

At the end, repeatedly attack the wooden blockade to break it down. 
Grapple to the next ledge. Open the chest for health if you wish. 
Destroy the statues for red orbs. The statue in the middle has 
something shiny behind it. Push this object forward and it will fall 
out of sight. Follow it and you will return to the previous area where 
you fought the Cyclops.

Push the block onto the platform on the right. Push the block as far 
right as you can and push the other block right as well. Go left and 
press R1 near the raised side of the platform. Kratos will push the 
platform into the bog.

Jump onto the roof of the platform and go forward. Climb the wall on 
the other side and make your way left. Slash at the tree in your way 
and jump across the gap. Continue left and climb down until you reach 
the next area.

Head into the cave in front of you. Head down the path and you will see 
a stone Minotaur. Destroy it for red orbs. Press R1 near the body for a 
scene. Go forward and kill the gorgon. The path to the left is a dead 
end. To the right, where the gorgon came from, is another path. At the 
end is a chest with a Phoenix Feather and another with red orbs.

Go back and grab the dead soldier. Place it on the conveyor belt and 
the crusher will break. Attack the crusher and the path forward will 
open.

Open the chest for health or magic. Open the gate and watch the scene. 
It's time for another boss.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                         Dark Cerberus
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This Cerberus is quite a bit more powerful than the one you trounced 
earlier. It has some similar attacks but adds in some nasty ones. It 
will swipe at you with its claws, sometimes in a two-swipe combo and 
the head-butt attack from the other Cerberus returns. The Dark Cerberus 
will also breathe fire from all three mouths and shoot out fireballs. 
Finally, it will pound the ground and create a shockwave. The good 
thing to note is that all of its attacks are dodged with a roll. Start 
the battle by roll away from the beast and use square attack from a 
distance. When it claws at you, roll from the first strike and attack 
in a combo and you will damage it a bit. When it uses the flames or 
fireballs, roll far away and wait a second, then roll in and attack for 
a quick couple of attacks. Halfway through, a scene will occur where 
the Cerberus eats the arm with the golden fleece on it. This is the 
time where you want to whip out Rage Of The Titans. Attack the beast, 
making sure to stay at a short distance because it can still hurt you. 
When your meter is empty, go back to the previous pattern. This time, 
as you attack, use Cronos' Rage to deal extra damage. Eventually, a 
circle will appear over the beasts head. Press the button and the beast 
will fall.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Pull the lever to the right. The wall with the face on it will now spit 
out fireballs. Go in front of the wall and wait for a fireball. Press 
L1 to reflect the fireball and destroy the wall. Kill the gorgons on 
the other side. You can reflect their gaze with the Golden Fleece if 
you want.

Continue down the path, taking a right at the fork and go forward some 
more. Jump over the small ledges and you will see another crusher on 
your left. This was also stopped when you killed the soldier, so 
destroy it. Go inside the alcove and open the chest for a Gorgon's Eye.

Continue down the path. Head right and climb onto the wall. Go right, 
jump the gap, and climb down. You are now back to the platform you 
dropped in the bog. Jump to the right and head down the path until you 
reach the save point. Make sure to save your game.

Go left and go to the door that shot green beams at you before. Use the 
fleece to reflect the green beams. The stone will crack. Go forward and 
attack it to break down the door. Descend the stairs and open the gate.

Destroy the statues for red orbs and open the chest for health. Head 
right, destroy the statues, and kill the enemies. Climb down the 
ladder.

At the bottom, a cut scene will play and you will have to fight a 
roomful of enemies. Take out the soldiers first and then focus on the 
Minotaur. Use Cronos' Rage and Rage Of The Titans to attack multiple 
enemies and clear the room quickly. When they're all dead, open the 
chest for health or magic.

Go through the door on the right and open the chest for red orbs. 
Descend the lift to reach the next floor. Throw one of the fire nymphs 
at the plaque on the left wall to reveal a chest with a Phoenix 
Feather.

Return to the lift you descended on and raise it until you can just fit 
underneath the metal gate. Look in the alcove underneath the lift for a 
chest with a Gorgon's Eye. Jump onto the lift on the left and climb the 
ledges to the top. Defeat the enemy here. He's not too hard but he 
likes to block a lot.

Go forward and open the chest for health. Save your game.

Go back a little and head left. Climb the wall and open the chest for 
magic. Climb onto the wall and latch onto the ceiling. Avoid the blades 
and make your way to the other end of the ceiling. It's not that hard 
of a challenge.

Drop down and open the chest if you need health. Rotate the lever to 
pull back the spiked crushing machine. Immediately head into the 
passage and roll to the lever near the right end. Pull it to lower a 
wall section. Afterwards, run right and open the gate as fast as you 
can, otherwise you will be crushed to death.

Jump down into the room and read the book for a scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                            Euryale
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Phase 1: In this phase, the boss has a few different attacks. It will 
tilt its head back and do a stone gaze attack. You can reflect this or 
roll away to avoid it. Next, the boss will stand on its tail and then 
swing it at you. Roll away to avoid this. Also, the boss will do a tail 
combo where it lies on its stomach and swings its tail at you. This is 
followed by a tail smash. Roll away and you should avoid this attack. 
Lastly, the boss will do a head-butt attack. Roll away when the boss 
does this. Start by rolling away from the boss and attack from a safe 
distance with the blades. Avoid the tail attacks and attack when its 
combo is finished. Use Cronos' Rage to do some nice damage and cancel 
her attacks. Keep attacking until she climbs onto a pillar.

Phase 2: On of the main attacks to avoid in this phase is the gaze 
shockwave. The boss will use its stone gaze upon the floor and a 
shockwave will ripple out that can turn you to stone. Double jump over 
this or you will fall to the ground and shatter. Next, the boss will 
shoot out projectiles that will turn you to stone after a few hits. 
Roll to avoid this. Also, the boss will jump into the air and land in 
the center of the room, creating a shockwave. Jump over the shockwave 
or roll to a safe distance. Finally, the boss will try to hit you with 
its tail while it's on the pillar. Roll to avoid this as well. Pay 
close attention to the boss during this phase. Avoid its gaze shockwave 
and attack the boss up close. You don't need to jump, just attack the 
pillar and the boss will get hurt. After a few combos, the boss will 
jump down and create a shockwave. Jump over the shockwave and attack 
the boss. It won't try to attack you at this point, so get in some 
combos. It'll crawl back to the pillar and either use its gaze wave or 
shoot projectiles. Go close to the boss, avoid the tail attack and keep 
attacking. Eventually, the boss will be stun and a circle command will 
appear. Press circle to pull down the pillar. Repeat this pattern until 
the other pillar is broken.

Phase 3: At this point, the boss looses all rational thought and has a 
lot fewer attacks. The first attack is a series of ground smacks. Roll 
away from the rampaging boss and the attack will cease. The only other 
attack is the recurrence of the gaze projectiles from the last phase. 
At this point, I like to use my Rage Of The Titans, while laying down a 
lot of Cronos' Rage orbs. This will finish this phase very quickly. A 
circle command will soon appear over the boss' head, so go through the 
action sequence and you will gain the Head Of Euryale.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Head Of Euryale will turn enemies to stone, much like the spell 
from the last game. Enemies will spawn in the room now. Turn five of 
them into stone and smash them to pieces to open the door forward. Go 
down the hall and save your game.

Enter the next room for a giant puzzle. First off, turn the handle to 
raise the column. Jump over to the lever, to your right, near the 
ladder. Pull the lever, slow down time, and swim through the open gate.

As you go through the gate, to your right will be a lever. Pull it to 
keep the gate open permanently. Surface and go to the second column. 
Turn the handle and raise the second column. Dive back into the water 
and swim forward. There is a second lever here. Pull it and swim 
quickly through the two gates. Use a swim dash to swim through faster. 
If you don't make it, turn right and you will return to the first 
column.

In the next room, jump up onto the platform with the next column. Break 
the wall on the left for a chest with red orbs. Raise the column with 
the handle.

Dive down and perform a swim dash to break through the gate on the 
right. Surface and turn the next handle to raise the next column. Jump 
to the lever in front of you. Pull it and a gate will open above you 
(permanently).

Head down the hall to the right and climb the ladder. Open the chests 
behind you for red orbs. Step on the pressure switch to reveal a 
ladder. This is a shortcut to the roof.

Go back down the ladder you just climbed and head right into a new 
room. Try to turn the handle and a new enemy will appear. It is 
incredibly slow but powerful, so roll when it attacks and attack it 
until it dies. More enemies will spawn after you kill this. Kill 
everyone and you can finally continue.

Turn the handle until the column is fully raised. This column won't 
stay raised though. What you need to do is wait until the column is 
fully raised and stop time. Climb the ladder and wait for time to 
return to normal. Stop time again as soon as you can.

Swing from the first column and jump to the second column. Swing to the 
column you just raised and jump to the next one. Now you don't need to 
rush anymore.

Swing from this column to the fifth column. Jump to the right to reach 
an alcove with two chests. Open them for a Phoenix Feather and red 
orbs. Return to the column. Jump and swing to the open gateway. Open 
the chest for health. Go down the hallway.

Pull the lever. The platform will rise and hounds will attack. Kill all 
of them. When the platform reaches the top, it looks like you're going 
to die but an action sequence will take over. Rapidly press circle to 
kick down the platform. More dogs will drop down. Kill them quickly and 
perform the action sequence again. Repeat this until the door in the 
background opens. Jump through it to the next area.

Break the woodwork for red orbs and kill the harpies. Balance across 
the beams. Jump and grab onto the ledge. Shimmy to the left and open 
the chest for health or magic. Go forward to see a familiar foe.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                         Rock Minotaur
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This boss fights exactly the same as the last time, only this time 
harpies will swarm you. The platform is smaller than last time but it's 
not that bad. Start off the battle with Rage Of The Titans and attack 
like crazy. At the same time, use Cronos' Rage to kill the harpies 
before they reach you and do some damage to the boss. After you run out 
of both rage's, back up a bit and wait for the boss to attack. When 
it's done, rush in and get some combos in. When the circle command 
appears, press the buttons to kill the Minotaur.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Grapple to the next pathway. Walk forward and save your game.

Walk down the hallway and a bunch of skeletons will ambush you. Kill 
them and ascend the stairs. Pull the lever and you will be back in the 
area where you used the statues to reflect the giant statue's eye 
beams.

Head back into the bog of the forgotten and run to the end of the path. 
There is a chest here with red orbs and a mega chest with thousands of 
red orbs. Return to Destiny's Atrium.

Head left and go under the arch. Use the fleece to reflect the 
fireballs and destroy the wall. Shimmy along the wall to reach the next 
path and open the green and blue chests behind the stalactites.

Climb down the ladder and head forward. Kill the archers. Go forward 
and kill some more enemies. When they're dead, shoot the archers with 
your bow. Grapple to the next platform. Climb the wall to your left and 
open the chests for red orbs.

Climb back down and grapple to the next platform. Kill the enemies and 
open the chest for health. Climb the ladder in front of you.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
   The Hall Of Atropos:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

A cut scene will play. Go forward and defeat the wraiths. They aren't 
too hard. Just use Cronos' Rage and grab as often as you can and they 
should fall to your combos. Save your game on the right. You can't do 
anything in this area for now, so go through the door on the right.

Go forward and open the chests for health and magic. Head right and you 
will have to fight a few enemies. The priests will summon multiple 
enemies to the battlefield, so defeat them first and then concentrate 
on the Minotaur. Use Cronos' Rage to attack all the enemies at once and 
the battle shouldn't be a problem.

There are two statues and a handle to your right. Rotating the handle 
causes a platform to the left to rise. It won't remain that way for 
long though. Push one of the statues onto the platform. Place the other 
statue next to the platform.

Turn the handle and raise the platform all the way. Run to the statue 
on the ground and push it under the descending platform. Now the 
platform won't descend any more. Jump up to the next area.

Open the chest for health and go right. Open the next chest for red 
orbs and climb the ladder to your left. Go forward, kill the enemies, 
and open the chest for magic or yellow orbs.

Go back a little and head down the staircase on your right. Kill more 
enemies and enter the room at the bottom. Satyrs will appear. Use 
Cronos' Rage and Rage Of The Titans to kill them faster. They block a 
lot but as long as you don't let them gang up on you, you'll be fine.

Go to the doorway and pull the block inward. Jump up and open the chest 
for red orbs. Push the block outward. It will fall down into the 
previous area. Push the block underneath the ladder on the side of the 
bridge.

Head left, across the bridge, and pen the chests for health and red 
orbs.

Go right and head through the door. Defeat all the enemies here and 
jump up the ledge on the left side of the room. Open the chest for 
health or magic. Go through the archway.

Save your game. Go to the end of the walkway. Jump down and press R1 to 
latch on to the grapple point. Grapple to the next point, where Kratos 
latches on to the side of the building. Jump to the next grapple point 
and jump back to the building.

Walk forward and kill the enemies. There is a statue with a green stone 
to your right. There is a circular button in the middle of the vines on 
the side of the cliff. Step on it and stop time. Run across the vine 
bridge, turn left and run across the next vine bridge.

Kill all the enemies here. Step on the button here and stop time once 
again. Cross the vine bridge, turn left, and cross the next vine 
bridge. Kill all the enemies. Step on the final button and stop time. 
Cross the vine bridge, turn left, and cross the last vine bridge.

Go through the door and open the chests for health and magic. Open the 
door for a scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                            Perseus
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Phase 1: For the first part of this battle, Perseus is invisible. The 
good thing is that you are in a pool of water and can figure out where 
he is. You can use the splashes of water to figure out where he is or 
you can look for a silhouette that appears before he attacks. The 
attacks are either green projectiles, that you can roll to avoid, or 
sword strikes. His attacks don't do much damage but it is better avoid 
his attacks then counterattack to get the jump on him. Cronos' Rage 
doesn't work well but Rage Of The Titans does wonders. After a while, 
the circle command will appear over his head. Quickly run to him and 
press circle to make him visible permanently.

Phase 2: Now Perseus is visible. He will slash at you with his sword or 
he will lunge with his sword. This is easily dodged with a quick roll. 
Perseus can roll as well but this is a mistake on his part. Roll behind 
him as he rolls and attack him. Get in a few combos and roll away. 
Perseus will still shoot green projectiles but you can see when he'll 
do this so it's easier to avoid. Keep him out of the sunlight or he'll 
use the shield to blind you. If he does, shake the left stick back and 
forth to escape. Roll before he can hit you. After a bit, the circle 
command will appear again. Press it to break his sword in half.

Now his is much more vulnerable. He only has his shield and slingshot 
now. He uses his shield to attach and blind you. Get in all your good 
combos here and he will fall prey to your might. Eventually, the circle 
command will appear again. Press circle to end the battle with another 
action sequence.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Go through the opening and replenish your health and magic. Slide down 
the chain to return to the previous area.

Save your game and then go back to the stone from earlier. Climb the 
ladder and go right. Turn right and you will reach a statue. Destroy 
its base and place the shield on it. Push it over the edge so it drops 
to the first floor. Push it into the groove in the wooden part of the 
floor. Go to the nearby handle and turn it to raise the platform. The 
shield will reflect one of the eye beams. Run to the stone block, climb 
the ladder, and go left to reach the other eye beam. Use the Golden 
Fleece to reflect it and open the way forward.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
   Outside Atropos:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Start climbing the staircase in the mountain. Continue down the pathway 
and you will reach a puzzle of sorts. You can't go left yet so go right 
and use your arrows to take out the archers. Grapple across and turn 
left. Swim to the next path and open the chests for health and magic. 
Turn left and there is another fork. The right path is gated off for 
now, so head left. You can see chests behind a metal grate. This is 
what was down the left path at the first fork. We'll get back to that 
later.

Go right and you will reach a broken bridge. You can't cross yet. Yeah, 
there are a lot of closed off paths here. Turn right and climb the 
vines on the wall.

At the top is a lever. Pull it and the gate below you will open. Ok, 
now we can go forward. Jump down and go through the open gate. Press R1 
and tap circle to grab the spear out of the dark griffin.

You have now acquired the Spear Of Destiny that the Dark Rider was 
using way earlier in the game. Enemies will now appear. Test your new 
weapon on them. This is much better than the hammer in my opinion. It's 
faster and has better attacks.

To your right is a fate statue with a green amulet. Push it onto the 
circle around the handle and turn it so that it faces the open gate. 
Push it down the gate and to the right (towards the open chest). Swim 
back across and turn around. Stop time, grapple back across the pool, 
and head left at the fork. Quickly go down the path (if you didn't stop 
time the floor would act as a switch and close the gate in front of 
you) and enter the alcove for some chests. There's a Phoenix Feather, 
The Urn Of Olympus, and red orbs here.

Return to the statue. Push it back up the ramp and rotate it so that 
the amulet faces to the right. Push it back where it was before. Go 
back to the broken bridge. Jump on it and it will straighten out. Now 
you can cross it.

Stop time, run to the end of the broken section, and jump to the next 
section. Open the chests for health and magic. Jump to the next section 
and save your game.

The next part of the game is very thrilling. It consists of a large 
grapple sequence where many things are falling down. I will try to 
describe what to do as clearly as possible.

Grapple across the first two points and you will see another point in 
front of you. Press R1 and Kratos will launch off the pillar and go 
right. Latch on to the next grapple point. This one swings you in a 
circle. The pillar you are on will start to fall but you want to wait 
until the pillar in front of you is out of the way.

Swing around two times and, on the third swing, double jump to the 
walkway. Walk forward and the platform starts to fall. Double jump to 
the next grapple point.

Here, you have to wait for the two grapple points in the distance to 
fall near enough for you to reach them. When they're close, jump and 
swing across these two grapple points and jump.

Latch onto the grapple point underneath the wooden structure ahead and 
you will be flung forward into a pillar with another point. Press R1 
and you will spring back to the wooden structure. Press R1 again to 
spring to the top of a pillar. One more button press and you will 
spring to another point on the top of a pillar.

Instead of springing off of it, Kratos will hang on. The pillar will 
start to turn and fall towards the next point. Jump to the last point. 
You will swing forward and jump through a pillar to the next pathway.

Walk down the path and soon you will reach an open area. The way 
forward will seal off and enemies will attack. Kill the sirens and 
Minotaur and you can go forward.

In the next open area, you will have to fight more Satyrs and 
Juggernauts. Use Cronos' Rage and be defensive and they should go down 
quickly. Use the chest for health or magic and go forward.

Open the chests for health and magic. Head left and save your game. Go 
across the bridge for a scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                                Icarus
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This is a very interesting battle. You are fighting Icarus while you 
are falling from this very high ledge. At the beginning of the fight, 
press the correct onscreen buttons and you will be on top as you fall. 
While on top, attack him with square, circle, or triangle. Eventually, 
Icarus will spin both of you around so that he is on top. Shake the 
left stick to get back on top. If you started the battle on the bottom, 
just shake the left stick and you will get on top. Eventually, Icarus 
will get on top and you will have to rotate the left stick to knock his 
head into a cliff. Continue attacking. When Icarus gets on top again, 
rotate the left stick to knock Icarus into the cliff wall. Continue 
attacking and rotate the left stick again to knock him into the wall 
for a final time. Rapidly press circle and you will rip off Icarus' 
wings.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

   =-=-=-
   Atlas:
   =-=-=-

Kratos will land underneath the world itself. You will now have to 
navigate your way back to up. Head left and open the chest for health. 
Save your game.

Kill the harpies and go right this time. Climb the wall and go left. 
Drop down to the ledge. The next platform is to far away to jump to but 
you can reach it using the Icarus wings. Press x and then hold it on 
the second press to glide to the next ledge. Glide to the third 
platform.

Look diagonally left and you will see a platform that looks like a 
large earring. Jump and glide to it. Glide to the next earring platform 
in front of you. Kill the harpies and glide around the chain to the 
next platform.

Look down and you will see another platform. Glide down to it. Glide 
into the cave and you will be on solid ground.

Kill the harpies and satyrs. I recommend liberal use of Cronos' Rage. 
Open the chest for health or magic.

Attack the fang-like appendages on the north wall. Pull out the 
vertebrae and move it to the ledge on the left. Jump up and open the 
chests for red orbs and a Phoenix Feather. Jump down and get behind the 
vertebrae. Pull it back through the tunnel you got it from. You need to 
pull it to get through the passageway.

Jump on the vertebrae and jump to the next ledge. Open the chest for 
health and walk down the passage. Glide to the platform in the lava. 
Walk to the pile of rocks to fight a very familiar boss.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                          Rock Minotaur
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The Rock Minotaur still hasn't changed. Its attacks are the same as 
they were the first two times. Attack from a distance and spam Cronos' 
Rage. Use air attacks (R1 plus x to get in the air and square or 
triangle to attack) to do lots of damage. Eventually, orbs will pour 
out of the boss. The platform will start to sink into the lava. 
Luckily, the boss made a place on the wall where you can climb. Jump 
onto the wall and wait. The boss will throw rocks at you now, so dodge 
by jumping left or right. The platform will soon reappear, so jump down 
onto it and continue attacking. Be careful not to get caught in its 
attacks as you attack from the air or you will receive lots of damage 
and be unable to block. Attack it enough and you will destroy it for 
good.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Push the boulder that the boss leaves behind to the door at the far 
end. Jump on top and jump over to the door. Walk forward. Glide to the 
left and open the chests for a Phoenix Feather and red orbs.

Glide to the right and land on the next platform. Jump to the next 
platform for a cut scene. Glide to the left and open the chest for 
health. Save your game. Attack the fang-like appendages to release a 
rock.

Jump back to the previous platform and jump on the rock. Destroy the 
purple rock and ride the rock to a grapple point. Grapple to the other 
side. In the next room, destroy the rock to unblock a vent.

Jump into the pit and attack the rock underneath the left side of the 
high ledge to reveal a chest with red orbs.

Jump out of the pit and glide to the other side. In the next room, 
destroy the rock with the circular openings to destroy the hives and 
end the swarms of nymphs. When all are destroyed, go back to the 
entrance and climb the wall behind one of the first hives you 
destroyed.

Climb up and go left. Jump the gap and climb onto the ceiling. Continue 
to the end and drop onto a ledge with health and magic chests.

Look to your left to see another climbable portion of wall. Glide to it 
and start climbing it. Latch onto the ceiling and destroy the 
stalactite. Drop down onto the platform. Jump into the opening to your 
left and start climbing the wall on the left.

Follow the ceiling, breaking the stalactites and killing enemies until 
you get to the end. Break the last obstruction and climb up. Go forward 
and walk on the platform. It will descend. Jump to the next wall 
section and climb down. You will be on the roof in the chamber where 
you released the rock.

Break the stalactites over the purple rock and a vent will open. 
Continue along the ceiling and drop down at the end. Save your game.

Use the vent to glide to the other side of the area. Glide down to the 
earring platform. Glide down to the platform with the handle. Try to 
turn the handle and enemies will attack. Defeat them all and turn the 
handle to raise the platform. Raise it all the way and glide to the 
next platform.

Glide to the next two platforms and slide down the chain. Open the 
chests for health and red orbs. Save your game to the right.

Climb the wall, go right, jump the gap, and kill the enemies. Climb 
some more, destroy the rocks, and climb to the top. Latch onto the 
ceiling. Drop from the ceiling and immediately latch onto the grapple 
point. Swing to the next one which is a circle grapple point.

Jump to the next grapple point and grab onto the wall. Climb up and 
jump to the platform behind you. Walk forward.

Grab the boulder on the left and push it to the top o the ramp. Grab 
the other boulder and push it underneath the first. Push the first 
boulder on top of the second and bring these stacked boulders over to 
the small ledge on the right. Jump onto the ledge and pull the first 
boulder onto the ledge. Push it to the right and use it to jump onto 
the high ledge.

To the left is a wall you can climb. Glide to it and climb left to 
reach a red orb chest. Return to the previous ledge and go forward. 
Open the chest for health. Climb the wall and wait before you head 
left.

Boulders will fall down on each side of the gap. Wait for the boulder 
to fall on the side closest to you and go left. Jump up the wall (Up 
plus X) then jump to the left side after the boulder falls on that 
side. Jump up and repeat the pattern until you reach the top.

Go left and slide down the wall. Go left and repeat what you did going 
up the other wall. Climb to the top.

Break the chain here to release the titan. A scene will play. When 
Atlas tries to crush you, alternate between R1 and L1 to break free. 
Another scene will play. When it's over, you will get a new spell: 
Atlas Quake. Test it out on the chumps who try to attack you.

A cut scene will occur once you defeat them all. Once it's over, jump 
across the gap and save your game.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
   The Palace Of The Fates:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Jump to the first rocky platform. To the left is a larger rocky 
platform. On the left side of it is a wall you can climb. Glide to that 
and climb to the top for a chest with red orbs. Jump from platform to 
platform to reach the end.

The last platform has a health chest. Glide to the entrance to the 
palace of the fates. There are health and magic chests on each side of 
the ramp.

On the right side of the ramp, in an alcove, is a lever. Pull it to 
lower the ramp and cause an enemy assault. The battle will start off 
with two beast lords and immediately get out of hand. They will summon 
Cyclops and more beast lords will appear when you kill one. In addition 
to this, those fire archers from before will attack from the sides. Use 
Atlas Quake, Cronos' Rage, and Rage Of The Titans as much as you can. 
When you run out of magic, use the chest on the right. If you need 
health, use the chest on the right. Eventually, they will all fall and 
you can get back to opening the door.

Go to the right side to the doorway and you will find a handle you can 
turn. Turn it until you can't anymore. The door still isn't open, so 
grab one of the handles to your right and keep turning. Do this a bit 
and the open door will appear and the ramp will rise again.

Go through the door and it will close behind you. Go to the open area 
on the right and get some health and red orbs. Pull the lever in the 
middle of the room. Dark nymphs will appear and spikes will come out of 
different sections of the floor. The wall will rotate and three of the 
sections are open.

As the wall rotates, certain sections will be open. Wait until the 
first open section reaches the room with the cracked wall. In the 
meantime, dodge the spikes and kill the nymphs with grab attacks. The 
wall has a handle, so pull it out as far as you can. The spikes will 
stop, the wall will stop turning, and you can now go into each room. 
Open the chests for red orbs.

Make sure you get the handle in the room on the left. Go forward and 
open the chest for health.

The right path is blocked, so head left and open the chests for magic 
and red orbs. Go forward for a cut scene. This area here is large and 
there's a lot you can do. It's easy to get lost so pay close attention.

Let's start with the ladder to your right. Climb that and let's begin.

Place the handle that you just picked up onto the crank. Now you can 
turn it. Turn the crank and you will see the flames on the left side of 
the screen start to retract into the wall. Turn the crank until the 
flames are gone. Stop time as soon as you can.

Slide down the ladder and jump to the platform that the fire was 
blocking. You should have enough time to get past the fire before it 
starts up again. When time resumes, if you are passed the fire, the 
flames will cease completely.

Open the chest in the alcove for a Phoenix Feather. Jump to the 
platform in front of you. Run down the hall and save your game. Go 
right, over the raised section of the hall and get ready for another 
puzzle.

Go forward and pull the lever. Quickly run back to the vent. Before you 
reach it, double jump and start to glide. As soon as you hit the 
updraft, turn around and glide towards the slowly closing gate. You 
should just be able to make it.

Run down the hallway and kill the hounds. Open the door at the end. 
Destroy the wooden structure for some red orbs and open the chests for 
health and magic.

There should be a stone block on the left. Push this into the next 
area. The book is written in a foreign language, so you can't read it. 
The door to the left is locked.

Push the block down the path to the right. In the room ahead is a man 
praying. He is a translator. Pick him up with R1. He was sitting on a 
pressure switch that keeps the door open. Throw him away from the 
switch and push the block onto it.

Pick up the translator. As you bring him to the book, waves of enemies 
will appear. Defeat the first wave with your blades. They come from one 
direction so it's not too hard. The next wave is more difficult. They 
will try to surround you. Use some magic to keep them away from the 
translator and defeat the normal enemies quickly. Take out the satyr 
and you should be done with wave 2.

The last wave will surround you like no tomorrow. This wave consists of 
priests and normal enemies. Take out the normal enemies first. Even 
though the priests can summon enemies, they only summon one at a time, 
so defeat the limited number of normal enemies, protecting the 
translator as you go.

Now you can take out the priests. Pull out all your tricks and best 
attacks and they go down fast. Now it seems as the translator has 
forgotten the words to the book. We can't have that can we? "Persuade" 
him to read the correct words and the door to the left will open. A 
scene will play, showing that this is only a small step in getting into 
the home of the sisters. Seriously, this whole area is a giant puzzle 
to get to that one place, much like the rings of Pandora from the first 
game. The development team did some nice work with this game.

Anyway, go to the door and you will receive the Ram's Key. Open the 
door, go down the hallway, and you will be back in the room with the 
vent puzzle.

Go back over the raised section and save your game.

Go back to the main area and open the door on the right with the Ram 
Key. Walk down the hall and open the chest for magic or health.

Notice the spikes on the wall to your left. Walk down the hall to your 
right and a cut scene will play. You must kill all of the enemies to 
survive. Start out with normal attacks and then pull out all the stops. 
Use Atlas Quake, Cronos' Rage, and Rage Of The Titans as well as your 
strongest attacks.

Once they're all dead, the spiked walls will return to their previous 
position. Run down the hall and turn right. Open the chest at the end 
of the hall for red orbs.

   Garden Of The Gods:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Go right again and head into the next room. A cut scene will play. Open 
the chests for a Phoenix Feather and red orbs. Break through the 
cracked wall to reveal a new path.

Go forward and hug the wall on the left side. Go right. As you go, you 
will pass windows. There will be a window with chests in it. To reach 
these, go to the next window and drop down. There is a floor here and 
only here. Go forward, climb the ladder, and go left to reach two 
chests with red orbs.

Return to the bottom of the ladder. Return to the ledge and shimmy 
right until you reach the other side. Save your game. Go into the next 
room and open the chest for health. Climb onto the chain. It will 
break, dropping you down to a room on a lower floor.

Examine the wall in front of you. Apparently, the sisters require a 
sacrifice by fire. Sirens will appear and you have to kill them with 
fire. The levers control the fire on the other side of the room. The 
easy way to kill them is to lure them to one side, use Cronos' Rage and 
pull the lever while they are trapped.

Go through the door once the sacrifice is accepted. Open the chest for 
health and dive into the blood water.

Swim down the passage, avoiding the bodies and the spikes. Surface at 
the other end. Go towards the camera to find two red orb chests. Go 
forward and get ready for a very cleverly designed puzzle.

There is a bunch of ice in this room and you must find a way to melt 
the ice at the exit.

Drop down into the pit with the bird statue and pull the lever. The 
bird will breathe fire and melt the ice over a mirror. Jump out of the 
pit and climb one of the walls. Once you reach the ceiling, go around 
and destroy all of the ice pieces. This will cause light beams to shine 
from the ceiling.

Drop to the ground and go to the three cranks on the side of the room. 
Rotate them so that the half moon is pictured below the middle lever. 
This means that the mirror (full moon) is across from the bird statue.

Go to the left side of the room and move the mirror to the bottom 
center of the room. The mirror will reflect the light to the mirror in 
front of the bird statue and melt the ice around it.

This uncovers a handle on the bird. You can now rotate the statue to 
melt all of the ice in the room. Melt all of the ice and grab the goods 
in each alcove. All told, there are four red orb chests, two Minotaur, 
one magic chest, and the exit.

Go through the door and head left. Turn right into the next room.

In this room, you need to destroy all of the fire nymph nests. There is 
one on the ground. Destroy this and climb the wall to the ceiling. 
Fight off the nymphs and destroy the two remaining nests. On is on the 
right, the other on the left. Drop down to the ground.

Turn the crank to lower a grapple point. Jump to the grapple point and 
latch on. Ride it to the next floor. Replenish health and magic with 
the chests and go forward for a fight.

The first enemies are two Cerberus that can spit out mini versions of 
themselves. Destroy the pups first because they can morph into full-
sized Cerberus at any time. When all of the dogs are dead, more appear, 
along with a few juggernauts. Use magic and Rage Of The Titans to get 
rid of them. If you are having trouble, there is a health chest in the 
left corner of the room.

Go forward and climb the ladder to your left. Save your game. Jump to 
the right side for three chests with red orbs. Jump down into the area 
to your left. This is the area in between the two gates. There are two 
more chests with red orbs here.

Use the ledges to return to the top. Jump back to the save point and 
open the gate. Open the chest for health and slide down the ladder.

Head down the hallway to the right. Grab the fate statue and push it 
down the hall. Go to the gate and watch the cut scene. Pull the lever 
and push the statue under the gate to keep it open.

Jump through the distortion to your left and you will be transported 
back in time. Run to the statue and stop time. Run back to where you 
got the statue and you will find another Mega Chest that extends your 
health meter.

Go back in time once more and stop time at once. Run to the translator 
and press R1 to stop him from doing what he wants. The nerve of that 
man.

Translator in tow, press R1 in front of the book. Persuade him to read 
it and watch the scene. GO to the door on the right and you will get 
the warrior's skull.

Go through the door. Turn the crank to widen the air current. Use it to 
reach the lever in the alcove. Pull the lever and you will raise the 
air current. Jump down and turn the handle again. Use the vent to reach 
the ceiling. Latch on and continue to the left.

Break the pillar to continue forward and drop down to the ground at the 
end. GO forward and turn the handle to descend a level. Jump across the 
gap and you will be back at the large area where you began.

Defeat the Cyclops that drop into the area. There are four in total. GO 
through the door on the left using the warrior's skull.

Open the chests for health and magic and save your game.

Go forward into the elevator. Press R1 and rapidly press circle to 
descend. Skeletons will rise and prevent you from doing this. Use the 
Head Of Euryale to turn them to stone. Break them before they can break 
free and continue descending. Continue defeating skeletons this way 
until you reach the bottom. There is a door here.

Two skeletons will try to attack you. Freeze them and open the door 
quickly. Roll under the door and the skeletons will be crushed by the 
spikes instead of you.

   Underground:

Open the red orb chests and go down the hallway to your right. Open the 
chest for health. Jump up to the rope and make your way across, killing 
enemies as you go. Archers will destroy the rope when you get halfway.

Go right, grab the ledge, and shimmy right until you can pull yourself 
up. Kill the archers and more enemies will appear. Kill the warriors 
and gorgons and return to the walkway in the middle of the lava.

Climb the wall to the left and latch onto the ceiling. Go forward and 
kill some enemies. Drop down to the floor and kill the enemies here.

Open the chests for health and magic. Head right and take out your bow. 
Shoot the target a few times and it will break. Jump to the secret room 
to find a Mega Blue Chest that increases your magic and a red orb 
chest. Destroy the right wall to find a super secret lever that 
retracts the spinning blades into the column.

Glide back to the other side and glide to the ledge above the secret 
room.

Glide around the pillars and you will reach the next area. Read the 
book and a lever will appear. It's useless for the moment, so glide to 
the right and save your game. Glide to the area behind the pillars in 
the middle for a chest with red orbs.

Return to the platform with the lever. Glide to the left and defeat the 
skeletons and go down the path. Kill the other enemy and enter the next 
room.

There are large spikes here and you don't want to step on them. Pull 
the lever and they will retract. Run forward and break the wall on the 
back left to reveal a fate statue. Stop time and run back to the lever. 
The enemies that attack will be skewered and you will be safe.

Pull the lever again and open the red chests next to the statue. Take 
two trips if you need to. Pull the lever again and walk to the body. 
Examine it to get the Hail Of Boreas. Run back to the lever.

Pull the lever again, freeze time, and run back to where the dead body 
was. Turn the crank here 360 degrees and then freeze time. Quickly run 
down the hall, jump the two gaps, and roll through the door before the 
spikes skewer you.

Head down the hall and you will see a group of chests behind a gate. 
Turn right and then left. In this part of the hall, to your right, is a 
ledge you can jump and grab. Do so and jump to the ledge on the other 
side. Slide down the ladder to reach three red orb chests.

Return to the hall and head down it some more. Open the chests for 
health and magic. Break the statue on the right for orbs and grab the 
statue on the left.

Push it forward against the waves of fire. Use Cronos' Rage to keep the 
enemies at bay. Push it in front of the lever. Pull the lever and push 
the statue further forward.

Push it on the pressure switch and quickly step on the button to lower 
a grapple point. Swing to the open gate on the other side. Open the 
chest for health. Push the urn forward and the platform will lower.

Push the urn into the groove on the right and walk forward. Kill all 
the enemies here. Pull out all your best skills and they'll go down. 
Save your game and pull the switch.

Watch the cool scene and glide to the second level of the circular 
staircase. At the top of the stairs, on either side, are chests with 
red orbs.

Jump into the alcove and pull the lever. Place the hail of boreas into 
the door behind you. Go through the door and follow the hall for a 
chest with red orbs. Climb the chain and jump off at the next level.

Go forward, open the chests for health and magic, and save your game.

Go outside and blow the horn for a cut scene. Ump down and jump onto 
the pillar on the right. Glide to the one on the left. Glide left to 
the ledge with the broken ladder. Open the door and head forward.

Pull the lever to raise the elevator to the left. Climb it and climb 
onto the ceiling. Break the two chains to reveal a red orb chest and a 
pillar. Pull the lever again and kill the enemies that appear. Push the 
statue in between the elevator and the hall.

Pull the lever. The elevator will get stuck halfway. Jump in and pull 
the pillar into the elevator. Jump onto the pillar and destroy the next 
chain to open the door.

Open the chest for health. Rotate the handle to raise the platforms 
outside. Go right and the door is now open. Turn this handle until the 
gateway is open.

Go into the next hallway. A fight will commence. It is very easy but 
meaningful, as you will see in a moment. Kill the unknown man and watch 
the scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                                Kraken
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Phase 1: The first part of the battle is really a shouting match 
against the Kraken. Soon it will grab you and another scene will roll. 
You will receive an upgrade for the Rage Of The Titans. Now we can beat 
down this scaly monster. Most of the Kraken's attacks are from its 
tentacles. All of these can be dodged with a quick roll. The only other 
attack is the Kraken's acid spit. Roll to avoid this as well. Now, this 
battle is more of a puzzle than a normal boss fight. You have to figure 
out how to make it vulnerable. First of all, you need to attack the 
left tentacle until green orbs fly out. The tentacle will back away 
from a pressure switch. Grab the dead body of the Spartan and place it 
on the switch. A vent will appear in the middle of the area. Use it to 
fly and reach the head of the Kraken. Attack the head enough times and 
it will stab it tentacle into the grate. The tentacle will get stuck. 
Climb onto it and attack the bulging part at the top. When you break 
that off, press circle to slice off the tentacle. Repeat the sequence 
of attacking the tentacle, placing the body on the switch, and 
attacking the head. The second tentacle will be stuck in the building, 
so run over, jump and latch onto it, and attack the bulging section. 
Press circle to slice off this tentacle as well.

Phase 2: The Kraken will now eat the body, so we need to figure out a 
new way to hurt it. The Kraken will now pound the ground in the middle 
of the area with its remaining tentacles, so stay out of the middle of 
the area and you should be fine. The rest of its attacks are similar to 
the last phase, so just roll to avoid them. Attack the tentacles and 
eventually one of them will be knocked off. Run to the other tentacle 
and continue attacking until that one falls as well. Now is a good time 
for magic or your upgraded Rage. Pull the lever to extend the bridge 
and kill this sucker.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Cross the bridge and press circle to start an action sequence. When 
it's over, watch the scene.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
   The Temple Of The Fates:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Swim to the right and save your game. Time is slowed in this area as if 
you had used the amulet of the fates. Go to the platform on the right, 
open the chest for health if you wish, and grapple to the platform in 
the middle. Destroy the crystal to return to normal time.

Jump into the water and find the handle. Turn it right until it is 
above a groove. Dive down and underneath the platform is a lever. Pull 
this and everything will lock into place. We'll get back to this later.

Grapple back to the platform and glide to the bell on the right with 
the picture of Cronos. Press R1 to grab it and alternate between L1 and 
R1 to ring it. Immediately stop time and glide left. When you are near 
the center platform, grapple to it. Press R1 near the hanging object to 
ring the other bell.

When both bells ring are ringing, the giant head will crack. Jump down 
to the handle that you turned earlier. This time it will turn the whole 
platform. Turn the platform so that the bell-ringer is aimed towards 
the statue.

Grapple back to the platform and press R1 to open the path forward. Go 
through the statue and open the chests on each side for red orbs. Go 
forward and open the chest for magic.

Glide to the platform and watch the scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                             Lahkesis
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Phase 1: The first part is pretty straightforward. She will try to kill 
you and for the most part her attacks are predictable. Most of her 
attacks involve glowing green orbs. She will shoot a single orb at you. 
Roll to avoid this. She will leave an orb behind her which will explode 
after a bit. Jump or roll away from this. Also, she will shoot two 
waves of three orbs at you. These hover on the ground, so you can jump 
or roll to avoid this. She will also hover in the air at times and 
plummet down, creating a shockwave. Stay away from her to avoid this. 
Her last attack is a three hit combo with her staff. This isn't too 
hard to avoid. Just avoid her attacks keep attacking her. It's best to 
keep at a distance and use Cronos' Rage as well as other powerful 
attacks. Soon her attack pattern will change.

Phase 2: When she finally emits orbs, she will fly high in the air and 
you can't reach her right now. She has two attacks in this phase. 
First, she will throw her staff and energy orbs will rain down on 
Kratos. Roll to avoid these. Next, she will strike the ground with her 
staff and electrocute the entire floor. To avoid this, grapple to one 
of the points around the room. This leads you to actually damaging her. 
Grapple to a point near her. Avoid the orbs she shoots at you, jump off 
and use triangle attacks to damage her. Grapple back to the point and 
keep attacking. If you fall to the floor at any point, use Cronos' Rage 
to stun her and do some nice damage. Keep attacking and eventually the 
circle command will appear above her. Immediately grapple to a point 
near her, jump off, and press circle to end this part of the boss 
fight.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A scene will play and you will find yourself in another boss fight.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                               Atropos
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This battle is a race against time really. You have to stop Atropos 
from destroying the sword or the battle's over. She has two attacks. 
First, she will shoot homing energy balls at you. Deflect these back at 
her with the fleece. She will also shoot an energy beam to try to 
destroy the sword. You can deflect this to buy some time or stay away. 
Atropos will summon normal enemies to attack you while she flies around 
shooting energy at you. Kill these guys for magic and shoot her with 
arrows when she is far away. When she gets close to you, use liberal 
use of Cronos' Rage to stun her. If she tries to hit the sword with a 
beam, do your best to deflect it and buy time to defeat her. Use Rage 
Of The Titans to kill the normal enemies faster and gain more magic. 
After a while, the circle command will appear over Atropos. Press 
circle and the onscreen buttons and she will fall.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After another scene, you will be thrust into another boss battle.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                  Lahkesis and Atropos
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
During this fight, Atropos is trapped in the past. She can still attack 
you, however. She can manage to get herself halfway through the mirror 
and attack. She has the same two attacks as the last battle: energy 
orbs and an energy beam. Avoid these by rolling and focus on Lahkesis. 
She has the same attacks as last battle and will alternate between 
hovering high in the air and gliding on the ground. Attack her using 
the blades and magic and soon she will get stunned. She will glow 
green, meaning you can stop time. Do so and run to the mirror that 
Atropos is trapped in. Attack her and she will retreat into the mirror 
as it cracks. Attack the mirror and destroy it completely. One mirror 
down. Repeat the process with a second mirror: wearing Lahkesis down, 
stopping time, attacking Atropos, and destroying the mirror. Once two 
of the mirrors are destroyed, Lahkesis will stand in front of the 
mirror and try to protect her sister. She has two new attacks her. The 
first is where she makes pillars of energy that come at you in waves. 
Stand in between the pillars and you will avoid them. The other new 
attack is really a defense system in which she makes a shield of energy 
appear to protect her. Stay away from her while she is protecting. 
Continue attacking her, using your best spells and your new Rage and 
she will fall. The circle command will appear. Press the onscreen 
buttons to trap both sisters behind the mirror. Break the mirror and 
the fight will end.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
   The Inner Sanctum:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Breaking the mirror will reveal the way forward. Go forward and save 
your game. On either side of the save point are alcoves with red orbs 
chests in them.

Continue forward to the next area. There are murals on the walls that 
you can read. Could these depict the future? Climb the wall across from 
the entrance to the room and latch onto the ceiling. Make your way to 
the other side of the room and drop onto the platform.

From here, you can glide to alcoves on the right and left of the 
previous room. All of the chests contain red orbs. Return to the 
platform and walk down the corridor.

Break through the last wall on the right and follow the path. As you 
go, waves of enemies will attack. The first wave consists of normal 
enemies and juggernauts. Use normal attacks and Cronos' Rage to keep 
them at bay. You can even attack them through the shields that separate 
certain sections of the path with this spell.

The next wave is just normal enemies so attack and they will fall to 
your might. The third wave consists of sirens and gorgons. Use your 
upgraded Rage to take them out faster. When you are out of Rage use 
normal attacks. If they ever get stuck behind the shield, open the 
chest for magic and use spells to take them out. If the circle appears 
over one of their heads, go through the button-press sequence to gain 
magic. Use spells and they will fall quickly. When they're dead, get 
health from the chest.

The next wave consists of more normal enemies, so kill them and open 
the chest if you need magic or Rage. The fifth wave consists of satyrs 
and Minotaur. Use spells and maxed out blades to kill them off.

The next wave is normal enemies again. Kill them off and continue. The 
last wave is a bunch of normal enemies and three Cyclops. Kill the 
first two Cyclops with Rage and the third will appear. Take out the 
normal enemies and avoid the Cyclops. When the normal enemies start to 
thin out, focus more on the Cyclops. When they are all dead, open the 
chests for health and magic and save your game.

Attack the hand on the left side and hold R1 to unlatch the left side. 
Attack the right hand and unlatch the right side. Open the door and 
enter the giant room.

Dodge the swinging pendulums and go right. There are many arms over 
Clotho's body that will attack you. Attack the arm on the right and it 
will go limp. It won't stay like this forever, so be aware. Use Cronos' 
Rage to free the gate of obstruction and rotate the lever. The gate 
above will open.

Attack the arm again, glide to the gate, and open the chest for magic 
or yellow orbs. Climb the chain to the next level.

Go to the arm on the right and attack it until it is stunned. Continue 
right and pull the lever. This opens a trapdoor under the first arm. 
Stun the arm again, jump into the hole, and open the red orb chest. 
Jump out. Stun the arm again and pull the lever to pin the arm in the 
trapdoor.

Behind the trapdoor is a device with a handle. Pull it to the left 
until it reaches the lever you pulled. It will lock into place once you 
let go. Go right and stun the arm. Climb the rope to the platform above 
the arm and pull the lever. If the arm is still stunned, the blade will 
pin it to the floor. Two arms down.

Grab the device and pull it left again until it reaches the next 
hanging platform. It should lock into place if you let go. Stun the arm 
and pull the device past it. Pull the device until it reaches the 
overhanging stone hands.

Step on the pressure switch and the two devices will connect. Stun the 
arm and push the dive in front of the arm. Attack the arm a final time 
and it will get caught in the pendulum. The pendulum will fall.

All of the arms are pinned now. Climb the rope the pendulum was hanging 
from and jump to the ledge with the lever. Pull it and you will reach 
Clotho's head.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                               Clotho
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Clotho only attacks by trying to squash you with her fists. Stun her 
arms for orbs and to stop the attacks for a while. Go to the right and 
stun the right arm. Climb the wall on the right as far as you can and 
move to the right side. Attack the device to your right and you will be 
able to push a handle below. Jump down and stun the arm again. Move the 
handle so that the lever is in the middle of the room. Stun both arms 
and pull the lever. One of the swinging blades will rise from below. 
Grab it and turn it so that it faces Clotho. Get behind it and press R1 
for an action sequence. Press the onscreen buttons and Clotho is no 
more.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Go through either door behind Clotho and enter the elevator. Pull the 
lever to ascend to the next floor. Swim under the gate and grab health 
from the chest if you need it. Swim under the next gate and save your 
game.

Pull the lever and return to Clotho's dead body. There are many threads 
here you can pull. The one you want is the first one to the right of 
the lever you pulled to raise the swinging blade. Pull this thread 
until the timer starts. Stop time and run to the elevator.

Run back to the mirror next to the save point and jump through before 
the timer runs out. A scene will play.

   Summit Of Sacrifice:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                                 Zeus
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This is a four part battle against the king of Olympus. You can 
actually hurt him, now that you aren't on the verge of death.

Phase 1: Zeus starts off the battle as a giant. He has two attacks in 
this form. First, he can pound the platform with both hands and create 
shockwaves. Jump over this to avoid it. He will also throw a 
thunderbolt at the platform. This also creates a shockwave you can jump 
over. At the start of the battle, Zeus will summon sirens to attack 
you. This will work against him, though. Attack each siren until the 
circle appears and press circle near them. The shockwave that you 
release will hit Zeus and force him to release orbs. Watch out for his 
fist pound after he is hit and continue killing sirens until the circle 
appears over Zeus. Cronos' Rage works extremely well since everyone 
drops magic orbs. Press circle to stab Zeus' hand and shrink him to 
your size.

Phase 2: In this phase, Zeus is much more agile and has more attacks. 
He will try to throw thunderbolts at you. Roll to avoid these. He will 
also send out a shockwave of thunderbolts. Jump or roll to avoid it. He 
also has a punch combo and a sliding punch that leads into a punch 
combo. Roll to avoid both attacks. Start off the battle with Rage Of 
The Titans and attack Zeus without mercy. At the same time, spam 
Cronos' Rage and keep attacking. When your Rage meter half full, turn 
it off and attack normally. Zeus should get stunned soon and emit orbs. 
He will steal back his blade and go into the third phase.

Phase 3: You are now forced to use your blades against Zeus while he 
uses the blade of Olympus. Zeus is much faster now and will try to 
confuse you. All of Zeus' blade attacks are dodged with a quick roll. 
Start off the battle with liberal use of Cronos' Rage and then activate 
your other Rage. After a little bit, circle will appear above Zeus' 
head again. Press it and then rapidly press it to stab Zeus' and knock 
him into a column. Run to the column and press R1 to hit him with a 
pillar. The next part of the battle works the same as phase 2. You have 
the blade and he doesn't. Attack him until he takes it back a second 
time. Zeus will summon lightning orbs and use them as a shield. 
Activate your upgraded Rage and attack like crazy. Throw in some 
Cronos' Rage for good measure. Once the circle appears over his head 
again, go throw the same action sequence to throw him against another 
pillar. Go to the leftmost pillar to drop a large rock on him. Zeus 
will grow gigantic again.

Phase 4: Wait until the action sequence starts and press the onscreen 
buttons. Zeus doesn't stand a chance. Watch the scene that follows.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

   The Loom Chamber:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Run to the bottom of the chamber and pull on the same thread until the 
timer kicks in. Stop time, run to the elevator, and return to the 
mirror. Jump through and watch the final scene of the game. What a 
thrill ride that was. Enjoy the ending.
