    The in this guide listed trophies can only be found in the God of War 
    Collection for Playstation 3 and cannot be found in the original releases of 
    God of War & God of War II on Playstation 2.
    Well, this is my first FAQ that I write. I tell you how and where I have 
    unlocked some of the harder to get trophies during my run-throughs of these 
    games. Please note that I played in the hardest available difficulty.
    This means, Spartan-Mode (Hard) for God of War and God-Mode (Hard) for God of 
    War II.
    I did a second run-through on the easiest difficulty, to earn all the remaining 
    trophies that I forgot to unlock during my first run.
    You may notice that english is not my native language. I am trying to write as 
    error-free as possible. If you find any extreme errors, please e-mail me. If 
    you have any tips to earn certain trophies on an easier way, please e-mail me, 
    too.

    one with the number 36: the platinum trophy!
    
    
    ==============================
    ===GOW-1.1) Bronze Trophies===
    There are 20 bronze trophies to earn in God of War. Most of them only require 
    playing the game, while the others need some more specific things to do.

    magic in the chapter "The Gates of Athens". However, you need to defeat Medusa 
    first and rip off her head to earn the magic and the trophy.
    
    
    ============================
    ===GOW-1.1.3) Bolt Action===
    ===Requirement: Acquire Zeus' Fury

    You find a ramp that shoots in the wrong direction. Kick it down the corridor.

    nearby. Use the switch. Remove the ramp from the wheel. Use the switch again. 
    Push the ramp back on the wheel. Push the switch for the third time. Now fire 
    the ramp, destroy the door, activate Zeus shrine and get the magic and the 
    trophy.
    
    You encounter many monsters inside the room with the switch. This is the best 
    place to unlock the "Hitman" trophies: (GoW 1.1.19) and (GoW 1.2.8).
    
    
    ==========================
    ===GOW-1.1.4) Sword Man===
    ===Requirement: Acquire Blade of Artemis
    Get this blade from the Goddess Artemis.
    Turn Pandora's Ring to the second hole in the wall and find her shrine before

    Poseidon". Kill the sweet little Cerberus to regain health during the fight.

    and make your way through the dungeon.

    at least six Centaurs. Kill three in each of the magic rings during the battle, 
    to unlock this trophy.
    
    
    ===========================
    ===GOW-1.1.11) Kickboxer===
    ===Requirement: Complete the Spike Room Box Puzzle
    You need to survive the Spiked Room Box Puzzle before you can reach one of the 
    two necklaces in the chapter "The Cliffs of Madness.
    Enter the room and use the switch to close the gate. Pull the block out of its 
    place. Kick it three times as fast as possible. Jump on it and jump on the edge 
    above Kratos head. Get the necklace to unlock the trophy.
    
    
    ==================================
    ===GOW-1.1.12) Rockin' the Boat===
    ===Requirement: Complete the Sex Mini-Game
    You start in your cap with two beautiful naked women.
    Kratos starts a quick chat with them by pushing the R2-Button.
    However, to complete the Sex Mini-Game, you need to jump on the bed and to push 
    the Circle-Button. Follow the buttons that appear on the screen, followed by 
    directions with the left analog-stick. You get a bunch of red orbs and you 
    unlock the trophy.
    
    
    =========================================
    ===GOW-1.1.13) Don't Leave Her Hanging===
    ===Requirement: Rescue the Oracle with 10 seconds to spare
    This is an easy one. Just finish the race to rescue the Oracle with 10 seconds 
    left on the timer. Be in time to unlock the trophy.
    
    
    ======================================
    ===GOW-1.1.14) Get the Ball Rolling===
    ===Requirement: Complete the Challenge of Atlas
    Enter the room with the Atlas statue in "The Challenge of Atlas". It is the 
    statue with the big ball on it's shoulders.
    Climb up to the second floor and pull the switch. The statue throws the stone 
    and crashes the door. This unlocks the trophy.
    
    
    ===============================
    ===GOW-1.1.15) Totally Baked===
    ===Requirement: Complete the Human sacrifice
    Push the person inside the cage to the room at the far end of a corridor, 
    activate the switch to unlock the trophy.

    ===GOW-1.1.16) Splash===
    ===Requirement: Kiss the Nyad
    There are 4 Nyads, that can be found during the "Test of Poseidon" in 
    "Pandora's Temple". You need to kiss only one Nyad to get this trophy.
    Push the R2-Button to read Kratos thoughts.
    You need to push the Circle-Button near a Nyad to kiss her. Maybe the Nyad 
    rewards you with a Phoenix Feather or a Gorgon Eye, but the trophy drops for 
    sure.
    
    
    ===================================
    ===GOW-1.1.17) Get Me a Beer Kid===
    ===Requirement: Free yourself from the depths of Hades
    Climb up the rope at the end of the chapter "The Path of Hades" to unlock this 
    trophy.
    
    
    =============================================
    ===GOW-1.1.18) Zero Health = Bronze Trophy===
    ===Requirement: 
    You may ask yourself, if this trophy really needs a description. Oh, it does 
    for sure, because who could ever have the idea to open a health-giving chest 
    with a full health-meter? You gain no health, but a trophy for sure!
    
    
    ========================
    ===GOW-1.1.19) Hitman===
    ===Requirement: Get a 100 Hits Combo
    Make sure that your magic "Poseidon's Rage" is at least on Level 2 and your 
    mana-meter is full.
    I suggest you to to play in Hard Mode, because the monsters have more hit
    points and do not die that fast. Check the alternative strategies to know
    the places to unlock this trophy on lower difficulties.
    
    My Strategy for Hard Mode:
    --------------------------
    There is one place to get the trophy very fast. It is the little room with the 
    switch to rotate the gear wheel, short before you destroy the door that leads 
    to the magic of Zeus Fury. Open the center door on the left wall, near the gear 
    wheel in the ground.
    Many monsters spawn around the switch. Wait until they are surrounding Kratos.
    
    Now cast Poseidon's Rage and button-smash the Circle-Button. I hit the monsters 
    with a combo of 102. Cast it once more to unlock the "Hitman 2" trophy, too.
    I earned both trophies with a maximum combo of 206.
    
    Sometimes, your combo-counter restarts from zero if you wait to long for the 
    second wave of monsters to surround Kratos. If this happens, open the pause-
    menu with the SELECT-Button, use "Restart from the last Checkpoint" and try it 
    again.
    Just hit the monsters between the two magic attacks with normal attacks, to 
    avoid the combo-counter to reset itself.

    In the Challenge of Poseidon, after you get Poseidon's Trident and swim through 
    the tunnel where you learn to dash, you come up in the room full of mini-
    Cerberus dogs -- there are enough of them and the waves spawn fast enough that 
    I was able to get over a 300 hit combo using Poseidon's Rage on easy 
    difficulty.

    Well, I played it on Spartan (Normal) and managed to get both trophies in the 
    Challenge of Atlas. After you lower the rock and climb down and all the way to 
    Hades' shield after using the rope... I used Poseidon's Rage, which was at 
    level 1 after gathering the enemies around me, and I got 350 hits... and if you 
    are wondering, yeah I tried again and got over 170 and on the second 260... In 
    other words, you can do it easily...
    
    Mohammad A. wrote:
    There is very easy way to get this trophy with 200+ combo hits. The place is
    in the Temple of Panadora, before getting the blue shield. There is a wall
    with spikes going to kill you, while you are attacked by many monsters.
    Use Poseidons Rage and tab rapidly the Circle-Button.
    
    Send me an e-mail if you have discover another place to earn this trophy.
    I really want to know!
    
    
    ====================================

    ==============================
    ===GOW-1.2) Silver Trophies===
    There are 10 silver trophies to earn in God of War. You have various tasks to 
    accomplish to earn these trophies. Some of them only require defeating boss-

    story-based items.
    
    
    ==========================================
    ===GOW-1.2.1) Kratos' Marble Collection===
    ===Requirement: Collect all the Gorgon Eyes
    You need to find 18 Gorgon Eyes to earn this trophy. You can find the Gorgon 
    Eyes in specific chests during the game. You can also kiss two of the four 
    Nyad's to get one.
    
    
    ======================================
    ===GOW-1.2.2) Stick it in Your Cap!===
    ===Requirement: Collect all the Phoenix Feathers
    You need to find 18 Phoenix Feathers to earn this trophy. You can find the 
    Phoenix Feathers in specific chests during the game. You can also kiss two of 
    the four Nyad's to get one.
    
    
    ==================================
    ===GOW-1.2.3) It's the HUGE One===
    ===Requirement: Retrieve the Captain's Key
    You need to win the Hydra boss fight at the end of the first chapter "Aegean 
    Sea". After the Hydras death, walk into its open mouth and find the captain 
    inside. Take his key to unlock the trophy.
    
    
    ===========================================
    ===GOW-1.2.4) Take the Bull by the Horns===

    ===Requirement: Kill Ares
    Defeat and kill the God of War Ares at the end of the game to unlock this 
    trophy.
    
    
    ============================
    ===GOW-1.2.6) Head Hunter===
    ===Requirement: Obtain the head of the Architect's wife
    You find the remains of the architect's wife inside the chapter "The 
    Architect's Tomb". Get it to unlock the trophy.
    
    
    ========================================
    ===GOW-1.2.7) The Power to Kill a God===
    ===Requirement: Retrieve Pandora's Box
    All you need to do is to reach the end of the chapter "The Architect's Tomb".

    ===GOW-1.2.10) Seeing Red===
    ===Requirement: Max out all Weapons and Magic
    It is near impossible to max out all weapons and magic on Normal-Mode or

    - Kill your opponents very brutal to get more red orbs
    - Try to find every chest that includes red orbs during the game
    - Use the experience gift of the Gods at the secret room in Rings of Pandora
    - Chests and Monsters in Hades give you many red orbs
    - Fail the Mini-Game above Ares head after the second sequence to get many red 
    orbs (repeat this as much as you want)
    - Max out your weapons in the throne room at the end of the game

    accomplish.
    
    
    ====================================

    A comment on my blog from Jesse confirms it again:
    source: http://acantophis3rd.wordpress.com/2009/11/27/gow-trophies/
    "The only way to get up the Spiked Column is to not get hit so you get
    that trophy if you make it up. No need to reset."
    
    Thanks to their comments and e-mails, we know now that you dont need to
    reset from the last check point or to load your game again after you got
    hit. Just make it up to the top and the trophy is yours!
    
    Here are some tips on how to solve this torture:
    
    - Don't hesitate
    - Wait for the blades to move away
    - Use the walls to your left and right to take a break
    
    
    =================================================
    ===GOW-1.3.3) I'll Take the Physical Challenge===
    ===Requirement: Complete the Challenge of the Gods
    This is the hardest trophy to earn in God of War. It needs a lot of time to 
    figure out how to solve each of the 10 challenges. I needed 4 hours for all 
    stages. Take your time for this trophy.
    
    
    ========================================
    ===GOW-1.3.4) Speed of Jason McDonald===
    ===Requirement: Beat the game in under 5 hours on any Difficulty
    The best difficulty to accomplish this task is the Easy Mode and you need to 
    follow these simple rules:
    
    - Don't kill every enemy on your way
    - Only kill all enemies if you are forced to (to lift a magical barrier)
    - It helps a lot if you know how to solve every puzzle on your way
    - The timer does not run while you are in the save-, upgrade- and pause-screens
    - The timer does not run while pre-rendered and animated cut scenes are running
    
    
    ===============================
    ===GOW-1.3.5) Key to Success===
    ===Requirement: Collect all of the Muse Keys
    There are four possible chests, hidden during the Challenges in "Pandora's 
    Temple", that include a Muse Key, but you can only pick up two. I found my Muse 
    Keys at the following locations:
    
    - You can find one Key inside a chest behind the Atlas statue in the "Challenge 
    of Atlas".
    - Do you remember the rotating knifes at the roof of the "Challenge of Hades"?
    At the end, there is a rope to your left and a tiny walkway to your right side.
    Take the right walkway and find a chest with a key on its end.

    to come. Now abuse Poseidon's Rage and fill the breaks, until enough new 
    enemies surround you, with Light Attacks (Square-Button). I made a 634 HIT

    I found really easy (almost unintended) way to make it in Normal.
    Right after you get "Chrono's rage" in "The steeds of time" you have unlimited
    magic during the fight. Tap the L2-Button all the time and the lightning
    will make all the work since it chains all enemies in the small room and they
    keep coming from the ground. I raised a 856 HIT combo just by pressing L2.

    A good spot to obtain it is in the hand of Atlas, just after obtaining Atlas

    =====================================
    ===GOW-2.1.18) Hitting Your Stride===
    ===Requirement: 
    Just power up any item or magic to unlock this trophy.
    
    ==============================
    ===GOW-2.2) Silver Trophies===
    There are 11 silver trophies to unlock in God of War II. Many of them require 
    playing the game. Others have more challenging tasks to solve.
    
    
    =====================================
    ===GOW-2.2.1) Eye Can't Believe it===
    ===Requirement: Collect all the Gorgon Eyes
    You need to find 18 Gorgon Eyes to earn this trophy. You can find the Gorgon 
    Eyes in specific chests during the game.
    
    
    ==================================
    ===GOW-2.2.2) Go Make a Pillow!===
    ===Requirement: Collect all the Phoenix Feathers
    You need to find 18 Phoenix Feathers to earn this trophy. You can find the 
    Phoenix Feathers in specific chests during the game.
    
    
    =========================
    ===GOW-2.2.3) Eye Sore===
    ===Requirement: Collect 20 Cyclops Eyes
    Kill 20 Cyclops and rip out their eyes. It may be possible to get all 20 eyes 
    during the same game, but it is difficult (read the readers tips below).
    If you could not collect all 20 eyes during the same run, start a new game
    and continue. Please note, collecting the remaining eyes in a Bonus Play on
    a different difficulty does not work! Start a Bonus Play at the same
    difficulty to complete your collection.
    
    Eye Score in Titan Challenge Stage 1:
    -------------------------------------
    Another way to continue to complete your collection of Cyclops Eyes is to play 
    the first stage of the Challenge of the Titans, right after you finished the
    main-game. Enter the Challenge of the Titans directly from the Treasure menu
    and begin with this stage. Play it until you have all 20 eyes and the trophy
    will be unlocked, but take care of a bug:
    I found out that it's not possible to keep the eye after you succeeded the 
    challenge and just selected to Restart the current Challenge. Avoid this by 
    just selecting to Return to the Challenge main-menu and to start the challenge 
    from there again.

    Regarding the "Eye Sore" trophy, you claimed, "It is not possible to get all
    20 eyes during the same game."  I just did.
    
    Granted, I was playing on Easy difficulty, but I'm not sure that makes a
    difference.  Outside the Palace of the Fates (shortly after obtaining the
    Atlas Quake ability), there is a battle where creatures will blow a horn and
    summon a cyclops one after another.  The idea is to kill off the creatures
    before they summon too many.  I decided to let them summon several cyclopses
    and would simply pull the rider off the cyclops, damage it, and hope for the
    circle prompt to initiate the mini-game (otherwise I'd yank the rider off
    after he climbed back on and beat the cyclops down some more).  I kept
    defeating cyclopses while trying to keep the summoners alive long enough to
    get my twenty eyes.
    
    I'm guessing this might be harder to do on a higher difficulty, but isn't
    that hard on Easy.  Each cyclops gives you back some health, so it's easy to
    stay alive long enough to complete your collection.  On a harder difficulty,
    it's probably a good strategy to kill off the summoners as soon as possible,
    but I don't see why a skilled player couldn't do what I did on a harder level.
    
    David M. wrote:
    I'm writing you to tell you it is possible.
    Right outside of The Palace of the Fates. You have a lot of enemies coming at
    you. You have a Beast Lord Summoner that summon cyclops. Keep ripping out their
    eyes to get your 20 eyes. As long as u dont kill the summoner you can keep
    killing the cyclops to get your trophy.
    
    A final note:
    -------------
    I remember that I did it the same way in my first run of the game back in 2006
    but I only could collect 14 eyes. I tried it again in the remastered version
    on the hardest difficulty and the beastmasters did not call for more cyclops
    after I have defeated the others. So I was thinking that it is impossible to
    collect all 20 in the same run. I suggest you, my dear reader, to try out
    ynot4tony's and David's way and to call yourself a true god of war. Good luck!

    ===Requirement: Beat the Game on any Difficulty
    Just complete the game on any difficulty of your choice to unlock this trophy.
    
    
    =============================
    ===GOW-2.3.2) Feel the Urn===
    ===Requirement: Collect and use at least 2 Urns of Power
    Four Urns are hidden inside the main-game and two needs to be unlocked by 
    completing the Bonus Game "Challenge of the Titans".
    
    Here are the locations of the four Urns inside the main-game:
    
    Urn of Gaia:
    ------------
    Remember the riddle in "The City of Rhodos" with the golden bird statue on a 
    block. You need it to weight two ground plates.
    Push the block on the first plate and kick it through the door, followed by a 
    dodge role. Don't weight the second, just kick the block inside the right and 
    down the corridor to the three chests on a higher platform.
    Destroy the golden bird statue and jump on the block to reach the chests. The 
    chest in the center includes the first urn.
    
    Urn of Gorgons:
    ---------------
    Remember the big wheel in "The Bog of the Forgotten" and the corridor with the 
    stone-beams behind.
    After you got the Golden Fleece from the Cerberus, return to this place and 
    push the L1-Button while standing in front of the beams. You reverse the beam 
    and the wall breaks. Do this with all the three stone-beams to enter the chests 
    behind. One of these includes the second urn.
    
    Urn of Olympus:
    ---------------
    Remember the place with the Spear of Destiny sticking inside a dead bird.
    Pull it out of the bird and destroy the enemies. Now take the Statue of Fate 
    and rotate it with the platform, so it is looking in the direction were you 
    came from.
    Kick it down and push it in front of the first pool with water. Jump over the 
    pool and freeze time by pushing the L1+R1 Buttons. Now run. >Use the grapple 
    point to jump over the second pool. Run around the corner and cross the ground 
    plate that closes the gate in front of it. You find three chests inside the 
    room. One of it includes the third urn.
    
    Urn of Prometheus:
    ------------------
    Remember the area inside "Atlas" with the endless spawning insects.
    Destroy all nests first. Make your way to the exit of the cave and start 
    climbing on the wall. You find a hole at the first half of the way that leads 
    into a room with two chests. One chest includes the fourth urn.
    
    How to unlock the two remaining Urns at the Challenge of the Titans:
    
    Urn of Fates & Urn of Poseidon:
    -------------------------------
    You need to complete all the 7 stages of the Challenge of the Titans with a 
    Titan Ranking to get these two urns.
    
    How to activate the Urns:
    -------------------------
    Now start a Bonus Play on any difficulty and enter the Status-Menu by pushing 
    the L1-Button. It is the menu with the stats about how long the game runs and 
    how many monsters you have killed. There you can enable and disable the power 
    of the urns in your possession. Enable two powers to unlock the trophy.
    
    
    ================================
    ===GOW-2.3.3) Bleeding Thumbs===
    ===Requirement: Beat the Challenge of the Titans
    Complete the seven Challenges of the Titans to unlock this trophy. It does not 
    matter what Ranking you get at the end of each Challenge.
    
    
    ===================================
    ===GOW-2.3.4) 15 Min Fight Scene===
    ===Requirement: Battle your way to the Loom Chamber in under 10 minutes
    Remember the downward spiral to the Loom Chamber with the third, fat Sister of 
    Fate inside.
    Battle your way to the end of this spiral and defeat wave after wave of 
    enemies. Reach the door at its end in less than 10 minutes. This unlocks the 
    trophy. I made it on the easiest difficulty.
    
    
    ========================================================
    ===GOW-2.3.5) You Know the Germans Make Good Stuff...===
    ===Requirement: Collect all Uber Chests
    There are three Uber Chests inside the game. Find all three in the same run 
    through the main-game to unlock this trophy.
    
    Here are the locations of the chests:
    
    Uber Chest 1 Location:
    ----------------------
    Remember the place with the ride on the back of the Undead Berserkers horse.
    After you returned from "The Bog of the Forgotten", make your way to the place 
    were the ride has started. There you find the first Uber Chest.
    
    Uber Chest 2 Location:
    ----------------------
    Remember the place at "The Temple of Fates" with the translator that jumps 
    into death.
    You need to push a Statue of Fate near the door to see the translator killing 
    himself. Open the door with the switch. Go through the mirror and spawn outside 
    of the door. Freeze time and run back to the place were the statue originally 
    was, before you hear the translators screaming. There you find the second Uber 
    chest.
    
    Uber Chest 3 Location:
    ----------------------
    Remember the Underground Passage after the sacrifice of the second 
    translator. There you find a rope that tears up at the half way. You will fall 
    down. Kill the Gorgons and the Bowmen nearby and continue climbing on the wall. 
    On the other side, defeat all enemies and wait before the vent.
    Now use Typhon's Bane and shoot at the wall on the other side of the vent. The 
    wall will break and discovers a niche with the third Uber chest.
    
    After you found all three chests inside the same run through the game, the 
    trophy unlocks itself.
    
    
    ==============================
    ===GOW-2.4) Platinum Trophy===
    There is 1 platinum trophy to unlock in God of War II.
    
    
    ===============================
    ===GOW-2.4.1) Trophy of Gaia===

    I watched his video walkthrough for GoW and GoW2. It made me go and buy these 
    awesome games for my Playstation 2.

    My wife that sold my God of War games at GameSpot in reverse for the God of War 
    Collection on Playstation 3. Without her, this guide would not exist.
