    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.
    
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
       Flight To The Isle Of Creation:
       =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    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.

    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.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                                     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.

    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.
