This is my 3rd guide although it's a short one. I plan on making the full 
walkthrough when the game comes out.  God of War is one of my favourite games 
and on the PSP it is outstanding. Well let's get on with the destruction then 
shall we.

What's included in the demo, you ask. Well there really isn't much, theres only
the gameplay, and a little attica walkthrough video. In the video there are a
couple of animations and one move that are in it but you cannot execute them
in the gameplay. Those were probably updated after the demo gameplay, so they
will probably be in the full game.

1. When you beat the Persian King go to the centre of the room and high jump,
(HOLD /\) and you'll see the Kings sword floating in the air.

2. When you try to open the door at the last part if you look at the Basilisk
you'll see his animation speed up so as to hit you with the fire ball to 
prevent you from opening the door.

3. When evading if you tap /\ Kratos will roll faster, this could come in handy.
The difference is slight but you'll notice after a while.

When it says "breakable objects" I mean the little breakable things that hold
a small ammoun of red orbs. These things include wooden crates, barrels, tiny
forts etc.

Roof of a building
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
o----------------------------o
{Enemies: 16 Persian Soldiers}
{----------------------------}
{Breakable                   }
{objects: 3                  }
o----------------------------o
 
You start of on a roof of a building (which you'll soon enter) and 5 Persian
soldiers will come at you thinking that they have a chance, you'll soon teach
those scum. The game will tell you the basic fighting moves, the soldiers are
nothing just experiment with the attacks and before you know it they'll be 
killed. Once you've killed them a enemy ship will shoot it's cannons at your
direction. A dying Spartan will say "must return fire" which you must do. But
before that more enemies will come, 11 of them, dispatch of them and then
go towards the shining part of the balista and shoot the ship. Now more 
cannons will shoot at the building one will break the roof allowing you to 
access the inside of the building.

Inside the building
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
o------------------------------o
{Enemies:  5 Persians Soldiers }
{------------------------------}
{Allies :  3 Spartans          }
{------------------------------}
{Breakable                     }
{objects:  6                   }
o------------------------------o

Once inside you'll see some Persians fighting with some Spartans. The Spartans
will not attack you but it's okay if you kill them by "accident" along with
the those Persian scum. There will be a green orb chest in here, don't use it
as yet. Once you kill off the Persians go towards the shining part of the door
and open it by tapping O. Before you even get it half way off the ground
a cyclops will come and try to smash you with a pillar. Tap O to defend 
against it once you do another big baddy will come, the Basilsk, he makes mince
meat out of the cyclops and is still hungry so get ready.

This guy is a piece of cake, just do the heavy combos on him (/\(x3)) and he'll
be weakened in no time. Once you get him weak you have to initiate a mini game 
(a GOW favourite). The buttons are X and X. Once your done that Kratos will spot
the pillar (the one that the cyclops tried to smash you with, remember?). Go
towards the shining part and press O. Kratos will smash it over the Basilisk's
head causing it to run like a wimp. If you need the health go and get it. Exit
thorugh the newly opened path and you'll be on the beach.

The shores of Attica
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
o---------------------o 
{Breakable objects: 12}
o---------------------o

The Basilisk is now invading the city, it's blood trail is a sign of injury.
Those fence like objects and pathetic forts can be smashed to get some red 
orbs. As you proceed in this are you will see that those Persian ships are 
still attacking, shooting cannons in the air causing them to drop down on the
sandy surface. Maneuver through the sand, trying not to get hit from the
cannons and make your way to the battering ram (in front of it is a rams head
heh heh). Go to the shining part and hold circle, use the analog up or down
to push it. When you push it a little bit up a cannon ball will come flying 
down so stop and then proceed until you make it to the gate. At the gate if
you go to the right you will see a red orb chest at the left end there is
a green orb chest. Now use the battering ram and bust that gate open.

The city
~~~~~~~~
o----------------------------o
{Enemies: 14 Persian Soldiers}
{         3 Persian Archers  }
{----------------------------}
{Breakable                   }
{objects: 12                 }
o----------------------------o

As you enter you will see the Persians killing your fellow men, doesn't this
piss you off, go ahead and release your rage on them. Continue the path and 
you'll be faced with a new enemy, the Persian Archer. In this area there is 
a short swimming tutorial, cool off a little then proceed on the rampage. 
Once you kill of the first batch of enemies more will come out of the crack
in the door (they're like rats arn't they), 10 of them to be precise. There
is also a green orb chest here. You see that crank, you have to rotate that 
to open the door. If the Persians are getting in the way what do you do? Kill
them of course. Once you rotate the crank all the way quickly run towards the
door and roll to get through.

Battlegrounds
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
o---------------------------o
{Enemies: 4 Persian Soldiers}
{         4 Persian Archers }
{---------------------------}
{Breakable                  }
{objects: 11                }
o---------------------------o

Jump down the cliff and kill off the enemies. It might lag here a bit but the
lag actually adds more to the intensity of the fighting (in my opinion anyway)
If you continue to walk to your right you'll see a wooden wall which can be
destroyed and inside will be 2 red orb chests. Now go to the ladder and 
destroy the wooden wall then proceed up the ladder. Half way up will be a 
green orb chest, take it if you need it, other wise keep heading up. When you
reach the top you will be prompted to kick the wall down by pressing circle.

The rooftops
~~~~~~~~~~~~
o---------------------------o
{Enemies: 6 Persian Soldiers}
{---------------------------}
{Breakable                  }
{objects: 8                 }
o---------------------------o

You will see the Basilisk having a fun time destroying the city. 6 soldiers
will come after you but you know that they are no match. Head to the right
side and walk across the high beam, the Basilisk will shoot a fire ball at you
and you'll be hanging of the ledge. Just press X to get back up. When you are
across there will be a green orb chest and a door for which you must open.

This guy isn't to hard, his attacks don't take up much but they can be 
annoying. 11 soldiers will accompany him. 

The strategy for him is simple. Just double jump and do 2 heavy attacks
(/\(x2)) then run or jump away from him. Make sure that you only do 2 because if
you go overboard you'll get hit by his Efreet. Keep doing that and he'll get 
weak. When he does you have to initiate a mini game. The buttons are tap O, O, 
then [].

{Enemies: 6 Persian Soldiers}
o---------------------------o

Kratos will grab a box and with you help (tapping O) he will smash the King's
face in leaving him in a bloody mess. Now you will get the Efreet magic. Now
6 soldiers will come and they are basically guinea pigs for you to test out
your newly aquired magic on. You won't lose any MP until you kill them all.
Once you do the gate will open and there will be a green and blue orb chest
waiting for you. Open the gate and you'll be confronted with the Basilisk 
again.

{Enemies: 100 Persian Soldiers}

{Breakable                    }
{Objects: 7                   }
o-----------------------------o

100 SOLDIERS!!!!! Yeah thats right, I counted them myself. They will keep
climbing up the ladders, you can make them stop coming for a bit by knocking
down the ladders which will give you time to shoot the balista at the Basilisk.
Do you choose to fight or choose to finish the demo, it's up to you. If you 
choose to shoot the Basilisk then the arrow will puncture the beast making
it flinch while it's blood pours out of it's neck.

It is possible to get past the door where you have to tap circle but it is
also hard since the Basilisk shoots fire balls at you when you are trying to
open the door making you stop. If you find your way in (I havn't) theres a 
room which a involves putting moving a box to access the next part but when you
do it the PSP freezes. There is a way to get past the freezing part also, but
you need Custom Firmware and it requires hacks.
