    SPOILER FREE
    
    Well here it is the full version of GOW and I have to say that this game is
    amazing.  Sure it's short but what do you expect, they pushed the PSP to it's
    limits and gave the game great graphics so I say having a 5-6 hour long game
    is an accomplishment.  
    
    There are a couple of things missing in the full version that was in the demo.
    They took out apollo's ascension, apollo's offensive, and the running shoulder
    charge.  Althought you can do a shoulder charge you don't start of running, 
    rather rolling.
    
    Well that out of the way, let's get on to the carnage. (I don't like saying
    "the" Efreet)

    Life and Magic _________________________________________________________________
    --------------/
    
    To increase your life you have to collect 5 Gorgon eyes and to increase your
    magic your have to collect 5 phoenix feathers. You'll find these items in grey
    treasure chests throughout your adventure. There are a total of 15 gorgon eyes
    and 15 phoenix feathers. If you die a number of times and your HP is below
    85 the game will put your hp to 85 because it knows that you are having a hard
    time with the fight, it secretly tries to help you. It also does this if your
    HP is over 85 it'll instead put it lower, kinda like a double edged sword.
    
    -------\________________________________________________________________________
    Evading ________________________________________________________________________
    -------/
    
    While evading you can tap triangle to roll faster than your normal roll. This
    can come in handy.
    
    ------\_________________________________________________________________________
    Chests _________________________________________________________________________
    ------/
    
    RED CHEST 
    ---------
    Contains red orbs which are used to upgrade you magic and weapons.
    Upgrades not available in demo.
    
    GREEN CHEST
    -----------
    Contains green orbs that recovers you're health.
    
    BLUE CHEST
    ----------
    Contains blue orbs that recovers you're magic.
    
    ALTERNATING CHEST
    -----------------
    These chests alternate between green and blue orbs.
    
    GREY CHEST
    ----------
    These chests contain gorgon eyes, phoenix feathers or just random orbs.
    
    ------\_________________________________________________________________________
    Combos _________________________________________________________________________
    ------/
    When you get up to ten hits on an enemy then grab them and killing them, making 
    that the eleventh hit you will be given the 10+ orb bonus. This works great in 
    the elevator when you are fighting the demon birds.

    -------\________________________________________________________________________
    Grabing ________________________________________________________________________
    -------/
    
    When you are in a battle with numerous enemies, if you grab one enemy that can
    be grabed the surrounding enemies will not attack you until your grab animation
    is finished. This means you could press the () over and over until you opponent
    is dead without any annoyances, then move on to the next opponent. I know it's 
    a very cheap thing to do, but if you are trying to beat the game on god mode
    without any life, magic, or weapon upgrades then this little technique is going
    to be your savior.

    F.A.Q (IN4) ____________________________________________________________________
    -----------/
    
    Q. How do I get past (insert horse puzzle)?
    
    A. Just follow these Ctrl+F commands.
       Horse Puzzle 1 Euros    (HR1)
       Horse Puzzle 2 Totos    (HR2)
       Horse Puzzle 3 Zephyros (HR3)
    
    Q. How do I activate bonus play/equip a costume?
    
    A. Go to new game and pick the difficulty level that you beat the game with, 
       say yes to get your stuff from the previous play and it'll give you the 
       option to switch costumes. If you just want the costume and not your other
       stuff say no and it'll give you the option to change costumes. 
    
    Q. What do the costumes do?
    
    A. Spud of War = Infinite Magic
       McKratos    = Higher Attack Power
       Mime of War = More Red Orbs
    
    Q. Is it possible to beat Charon the first time?
    
    A. No, not even in new game plus.
    
    Q. How do I jump to the second platform in the jails of Tarturus?
    
    A. Press Ctrl-F type this in the search box (JAL) and press find.
    
    Q. I keep killing spirits in the Elysium Fields but I'm not getting any more
       of my powers back, WTH!
    
    A. This is most likely a glitch and the only way to fix it is to restart from
       your last check point.

    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.
    
    Throughout the walkthrough there will be stuff like (G E 1) or (P F 1) these are
    locations of gorgon eyes and phoenix feathers, the number beside them tells you
    in which order they are obtained.
    
    To find them just type in (GEX) for gorgon eyes and (PFX) for phoenix feathers

    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.

    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 around 4-5 hits or a plume of prometheus
    on him and then roll away.  Anytime you see him readying his fireball just back
    off and time it well then roll to dodge it.  You tend to get quite a bit of 
    green orbs from him for just 3 hits so you won't be dying anytime soon. If you
    feel you must and havn't opened the green orb chest as yet, go ahead and do so.
    
    After he's taken a a number of hits you'll have to initiate a button mini game
    by pressing () near his head.  When you're done the game you have to pick up
    the pillar (the one the cyclops tried to crush you with earlier, remember?) and
    Kratos will smash it into the Basilisk's eye with such force blood splatters 
    everywhere.  Damn, that eye won't be working anymore.

    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 they're balista arrows in the air causing them to drop
    down on the sandy surface creatinga small explosion. Maneuver through the sand, 
    trying not to get hit from the arrows 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 an arrow 
    will come flying down so stop and then proceed until you make it to gate. At the
    gate if you go to the right you will see a red orb chest at the left end there 
    is a chest containing a Gorgon eye(GE1). Now use the battering ram and bust that
    gate open.

    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. Jump in the water and 
    you'll notice that you can't dive...as yet. Just continue on with the rampage
    and kill of the archers and soldiers.  Now head toward the crank and turn it, 
    the moment you start turning it two soldiers will come, kill them.  Now turn
    it all the way so the door will be fully opened...wait, damnit two more
    soldiers appeared, murder them.  Ah damn the door closed.  DAMN YOU PERSIANS!
    Open the door and roll on through.

    This guy isn't to hard, his attacks don't take up much but they can be 
    annoying. 13 soldiers will accompany him. 
    
    He's way easier now than in the demo.  He hardly ever does Efreet so you can
    just combo him up and roll away when necessary. Those soldiers get kinda 
    annoying so kill them and you'll get red orbs too, yummy. When the king is down
    to a little bit of HP you'll have to initiate a mini game. 
    
    (cutscene)
    
    Hear comes a brutal part, as the king pleads for mercy and offers you women 
    Kratos doesn't give a crap about, or so he thinks. He'll pick up a box full of 
    gold and with your aid of tapping () he'll smash it on the kings head 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 two gates will open, go on into
    the right one first, I guarantee you'll like it.
    
    Ah here comes a mature part. It's been in all of the games, always in the 
    first stage, although in GOW2 it was kinda tricky to find, that's right the
    sex mini game. 
    
    For saving the two women they thank you in a more pleasurable way. To initiate
    the game walk up to the ladies and press (). There are 6 actions to do, the 
    1st,2nd, and 6th actions are random, the 3rd,4th, and 5th are not.  They are
    rotate analog counter clockwise, rotate analog clockwise and tap L and R. When
    you are doing it take a look at the candle, at the end it'll show well you'll
    see and you might get it. Of course you'll get a reward, some red orbs.
    
    Head into the left gate and you'll see a shining light, that's a save point
    go ahead and save. Open the door and you'll be confronted with the Basilisk once
    again.

    Aww no more 100 soldiers instead you get 22, of course you can still knock down
    the ladders so that they will stop climbing up for a while. Well the objective
    here is to shoot the balista at the basilisk so that he'll stop breathing his
    fire ball at you when you try to open the door. But before you get to hasty
    when turning the balista turn it only until it reaches the centre and it's 
    pointing straight into the buildings. Now shoot it and it'll destroy a building
    which you will access later. After that shoot the crap out of the Basilisk,
    right in the neck, then open the door.

    As you enter you'll see a crank, don't be so hasty, just continue on and climb

    As you enter this area you'll see a Cyclops climbing a building and slaughtering
    your fellow Spartans. Now he's comming after you. Just do 4-5 hits and the 
    moment you see him starting to attack roll away as quick as you can. Do Efreet
    if you want it'll make him flinch and theres a blue orb chest so you can fuel
    up when low. Keep doing this until you see a () above his head and you know 
    what to do from there. 
    
    Now continue on and open the gate and 4 archers will be sniping you, obliterate
    them. Walk towards the left and you'll see a red orb chest and a chest with 
    a gorgon eye (GE3). Move on to the right climb the ladder and then the wall.
    
    Now do you remember the building you shot with the balista? It's here, just
    continue up and go across the ramp. You'll see the building with a hole in the
    wall and a chest inside. In the chest is a Gorgon eye (GE4). (this was the e
    extra one I was talking about) Now theres a red orb chest and a grey one on the
    other side, jump across to access it and in the grey chest theres a phoenix
    feather(PF2). Jump back across and destroy the wooden wall and activate the 
    lever.

    Get the red orb chest and do whatever, then go up the stairs and open the door.
    The Basilisk is on the roof and it has a dead man in it's mouth like a toothpick
    he spits it out on to the stone floor. It's your first puzzle, an easy one, not
    quite sure if it's even a puzzle but some people got stuck on it. Theres a red
    orb chest where the archers are on the ledge behind the pillar and 2 more chests
    all the way at the left side of the screen. Kill off all of the enemies as they
    will get in the way.
    
    You'll come across a large box which you must push it towards the gate and onto
    the switch on the ground. Then get the body and walk to the other side and put
    his dead carcass on the other switch. Go on through and you'll be confronted
    with a WHAT... a red orb chest. Continue on and you'll come across a save point,
    save. After the save point there is a chest containing a phoenix feather (PF3).

             \__________________________________________________________/
    
    Well it's the Basilisk again, he's still easy. For this fight you if you want 
    to make it easier on yourself just stay in the middle and attack from there. If
    you go to either the right or left side he'll just swipe at you and it's 
    unblockable. If you stay in the middle he'll just bite you and that is in fact
    blockable. 
    
    As you might have noticed, he has no life bar. Your objective here is to keep
    hitting him until he backs up. If you do it perfectly you'll only have to do 
    this 2 times. When attacking get around 4-5 hits, remember stay in the middle, 
    and then hold L to block his bite. Keep doing this. Every time you knock him 
    back he'll do fire breath, this is easily avoidable, just jump. Sometimes he'll
    do his chomp attack to avoid getting chomped on just tap L + R when prompted
    to. When you knock him back all the way he'll climb up the wall and rain down 
    fireballs. To dodge these just zig zag through the field until you reach his 
    arm to press () on. When you press () you have to rotate the anaglog nub. Do 
    this twice and in the 3rd phase you just have to hit him until the () appears. 
    In the 3rd phase his attacks are quicker, so you'll only get around 2-3 hits on 
    him then block.

    Continue climbing down and there will be a save point and a building to enter.
    Break the door down and you'll be confronted with a new enemy, the Fog Soldier.
    He has dual blades but is really easy. He tends to block when you are doing 
    combos so hit him with some grabs and heavy attacks. Continue on after you've
    killed him and break the wall down to get a red orb chest and a some random
    orbs.

    Have you been killing the enemies, good job. 
    
    See that box head to the left of it and there will be a building in which you
    can enter, in it is a gorgon eye (GE5). Hear that man saying STAY AWAY FROM THE

    Upon entering you'll see a chest if you walk up, they tried to hide it in the
    rocks, but I mean come on. In it is a gorgon eye (GE6). 
    
    If you walk to the right you'll come into contact with a screamer, they kinda
    look like a medusa but they don't have snake hair or petrify you, instead they
    burst your eardrums. They will respawn over and over and after you've killed
    the first three they will stop dropping orbs so your plan for unlimited orbs
    is a fail. To make them stop respawning just turn that crank. 
    
    To the right is a red orb chest and 4 fog archers. Well let's move on shall we,
    go to the centre and grab that torch. Go back to the right and light the hay
    with your torch and move the trolly up until the camera pans to the left. Stop
    and kill the archer and open the 2 red orb chests. Move the trolly up again 
    and now the camera will pan to the right revealing two more chests and an archer
    The grey chest contains a phoenix feather (PF5), yays upgrade! If you need
    health open the alter chest when it's green.
    
    Keep moving up with the trolly and you'll find yourself in an open area. Battle
    time, a fierce sabretooth. It's easy enough when it pounces on you just tap
    L and R. The grab animation is kinda brutal. After you deal with that break
    down the wall on the right and continue on. 
    
    You'll be at the steed shrine, you can't do anything here as yet so just

    when you're down there 2 ram bombers will be fighting you and one will be 
    throwing the bombs from across the gate, that cheap bastard. If you walk to the
    right of the lever you will come across a chest that holds a phoenix feather
    (PF6). Because of him you won't be able to open the door since he keeps hiting 
    you. So what do you got to do, reach him, to do that you have to go to the left 
    of the lever and then you'll be in a battle. Kill those monsters and continue 
    onwards and you'll come into contact with another lever which will open a gate. 
    
    Head back to the upper level and up the stairs through the gate and kill that
    annoying bastard. Pull the lever to open the gate and now you can open the 
    shiny door. Press () next to is and you have to rotate the analog nub.
    
    As you walk open the red orb chest and the statues here are breakable so you can
    receive more orbs. Keep walking and a couple of demon birds will attack you. 
    After you've dealt with that get the red orb chest on the left side of the room 
    near the entrance.
    
    Grab both statues and pull the two levers. Enter the door on the right and you
    will have to fight a new enemy, the fireguard. When you're done pull the lever
    and enter the left entrance. Theres a save point save if you must.

    get off and open those 3 red orb chests, you know you wanna. Head up the

    a gorgon eye (GE8). Head back downstairs and destroy the throne. Pick up the
    sun shield. With this you can parry attacks, just time it right, the moment
    the enemy attack hits press L. You have to fight now, it's like practice, to
    try out your new shield. 
    
    Press () on the door and there are green and blue chests here so fuel up if you
    need it. Save if you want and head up the long stairs.

    Upon entering head to the left side and open the red orb chest. Now to solve
    the puzzle. It's quite easy really but I see how people could get stuck.
    
    Push both statues in their designated spots and then pull the wall all the way
    out, climb up and at the horse theres a door open it and open the two chests.
    Jump back down and pull the wall out all the way and now let go and walk to the

    You see those two statues pull them back all the way and it'll light up a circle
    jump on that circle and press L then tap (). Jump down and head to the upper

    the Triton's Lance and now you'll be able to dive. Jump back into the water and
    swim to the left side of the room and dive under to open the chests. Now swim
    to the right and break the gate underwater by hold R until Kratos is charged
    up and release. 
    
    Keep swimming and you'll come across some chests, some red and one has a phoenix
    feather (PF9). Keep swimming and break the gates then at the end pull the lever.

    moves by using Efreet, it'll make him flinch. After you take care of him, rotate
    the crank and open the door at the end.

    confront you and you'll come up to a save point. Save, then open the door and 
    pick up the item on the ground. With this you can reflect back projectiles that 
    the enemy will shoot at you. 3 statues will come alive and shoot fireballs, you 
    have to reflect them back by pressing L right when the attack hits or when its 
    close enough. After that you'll get new magic, the light of dawn, your very own
    projectile attack. Try it out on the flame fists that appear.
    
    Head to the left side and get the phoenix feather (PF10), and on the right side
    there are 2 red orb chests. Head to the centre and open the door.

    Well this is another puzzle room, it's easy but I can see why people got stuck.
    Start out by pressing () on the shiny to unlock the lever. Move the lever to the
    left side and it'll open the door. Go and grab the statue and move it to the
    lower left pad. Go back to the lever and shine it on the statue. Grab that new 
    statue and move it to the right lower pad. Now pull the lever to the right and
    it'll open the door on the high right, pull out the statue, then shine the 
    light on the statue on lower right pad, grab the new statue. 
    
    Now for the formation, put the statues facing north on the lower pads. Then put
    the statue facing left on the upper right pad and the one facing right on the
    upper left pad. It'll open up a new statue and you have to shine the light on
    that one. Do that and then jump on the platform that is behind the statute in 
    the middle and into the circle of light, press L and tap (). Go towards the 
    horse and activate it.

    Activate the lift and it'll take you all the way down. When you are down head up

    Start off by heading up towards the wall scaling it. When you reach the part
    where you hanging you can always drop by pressing R, but don't drop in the water
    Do you see those stone statues? They're kinda hidden in the colour, anyways they
    can be destroyed, remember that. Don't forget to get the chests and then climb
    up the wall at the end. Some enemies will come now, wall climbers I call them.
    They're easy and depending on what level your blades are you can kill them in
    one shot with a heavy attack. 
    
    At the top you are faced with a new enemy, the infamous medusa, and yes she can
    still pretrify you. Fortunatly this battle is easy since there are no other 
    enemies to interfere with the battle. If you get pertrified quickly tap L and R.
    Once you kill her 2 more will come. When your done head out and head down, don't
    jump across the stairs as yet. Do you see that weird rock thing, that's a statue
    and can be broken. Break it and follow the path to reach a phoenix feather(PF13)
    Head back up and now jump across the stairs and follow the path and you'll be
    in another battle, but more fierce since it contanins 3 cyclops. After you're 
    done with that jump across to the cliff and more enemies will come, kill them
    all and head to the upper left. That wall can be destroyed and when you do a 
    medusa pops out, a little bit of foreshadowing here. The tresure chest here 
    contains a gorgon eye (GE14).
    
    Now are you stuck again, you don't know what to do, where to go, you keep 
    falling in the water when you try to jump the ledge. Never fear this guide is 
    here. Head to the middle of the room and to the right side. Theres a wall that 
    can be broken here. When you break the wall go on in and move the block to 
    where the ledge of the green orb chest is. Jump on the block then jump on the 
    ledge. Scale the wall behind the waterfall and jump down when you reach the 
    end. Some enemies will be here, take care of them. Now attack that pillar 
    and then it'll turn shiny, press () on it and it'll fall down. Head into the 
    room, save and get the red orb chest.

    Climb the ledge and destroy the odd coloured wall on the left to reveal a chest
    with a phoenix feather (PF14) in it, then scale the wall on the right. Head
    straight and you'll be in a battle. The objective here is to kill both hell
    defenders so that their light will open the door. When the door is open head 
    through it and up the stairs. There is a gorgon eye (GE15) in this room and 
    guess what it's the last one, you got max health. Head out into the arena.
    
    There's annoying demon birds and 2 hell defenders. The harpies are easy enough 
    you can just grab them and Kratos stomps on them, but there are also these saws
    that keep going around the floor, they can be annoying. Once you're done head 
    out save and ring the bell. Don't worry about the shiny door for now.

    Well it's been a long time since a boss battle hasn't it, unfortunatly this one
    won't last too long for now. You can parry all his attacks and even all of his
    scythe combo if your good enough, but you if you don't like parrying you can 
    just block them it all then attack when he's done. Just combo him up and block 
    when necessary. When he is doing his energy ball just reflect them all back at 
    him, this is also a good way to get back health if you're low on it. When you 
    bring him down to half HP he'll do an attack that'll kill you in one shot.

    you're doing them a favour if you think about it. Those big chains that you
    see can be broken. When you reach the fork you can choose to go right to fight
    or left to progress, there is a blue chest at the end of the right side just
    to let you know.

    These harpies can be annoying since they always back off when you try to grab

    Save then start climbing the wall and when you reach the top you'll have to
    fight. Make sure to kill the harpies first because if you get petrified they 
    will hit you and you will die. On the right side there is a red orb chest and
    on the opposite side is a random chest. Pull both statues and turn the crank.
    
    Walk through the hallway and go through the door, it'll close behind you. Now
    you have to fight a minotaur. Kill the archers first because they can get 
    annoying, a simple grab should suffice. When you're done enter the left and up
    the stairs, a hell soldier will attack you kill him and you might break the
    wall behind him, if not break it anyways. Theres a red orb chest at the end
    of the path open it and then sidle across to the other side of the room. Break
    the wall and enter it. 
    
    Pull the lever and drop down to enter the newly opened room. Go upstairs and get

    shield just hold down [] and Kratos will break them. Head back across the bridge
    and break the shiny wall with your new weapon. Now there will be a pitiful 
    escape the spiked wall game, just run and break the wall up ahead, then break
    the statue. You can break the statue on the left to get a chest with random
    orbs and then break the one on the right to gain access to the next floor.
    
    Scale the wall and defeat the enemies then rotate the crank. Climb back down

    Kill of the enemies, the cyclops will have body armour, to break it just charge
    up your punch and attack him. Rotate the cranks and go jump to the platforms.
    
    *I've been getting a lot of questions for this part, jumping the platforms. Why
    it wasn't in the guide in the first place is because for my many times playing
    the game I never had this problem, I always made it to the second platform on
    my first jump. After trying it some times I see why people don't make the jump.
    Don't run right to the edge of the first platform then jump because this will
    make Kratos momentarily pause and make your jump too short. So what you do is
    run and just before you reach the edge (don't touch it) jump and while in the
    air jump again (doing a double jump) and you should grab onto the platform. I 
    always did this and I always made it.
    
    Open the door and then head into the upper room straight ahead. Open the 
    door at the end.

    Scale the wall and if you want you could head left and into another room which
    has a good ammount of red orbs in it, if not then head straight up. Kill all
    the enemies and for those archers either use the light of dawn or just reflect
    their arrows back. Rotate the cranks and one will yield a red orb chest the 
    other will grant your access to the next area.

    other side, when you rotate it enemies will come and try and stop you but I mean
    a freaking 100ft tall monster couldn't stop you much less they can. When you 
    reach to the other side there is another platform in which you must do the same
    thing that you just did. When you reach the end climb the wall and press ()
    on the shiny, then walk across the huge chain.

    As you can see he has more attacks, but he's still easy. Just do the same thing
    you did in the first battle, block when necessary. This time when he goes on top
    of the ship quickly go towards the flames and destroy one of the pillars.
    
    2nd phase: Now he will start doing his most cheapest attack, Charon's Wrath.
    If you get hit it'll make you stop for about 3-4 seconds and he keeps doing
    it over and over. Just roll and hit, roll and hit until he stops and does 
    something else, you'd probably only get 2 hits in with the blades of chaos. 
    Remember if you need health wait till he does his energy ball and reflect it 
    back. Just like before he'll go back on top of the ship, do the same as before.
    
    3rd phase: He'll start doing his scythe explosion attack, it's easy to dodge,
    just jump and do some aerial attacks. He'll go to all 4 corners then go to the
    middle and do the bigger explosion. When he does this his scythe will get stuck
    in the ground for a bit and allow you to attack him.
    
    4th phase: Now you'll be fighting his chest and up, just reflect all the energy
    orbs at him and press () when the time is right.
    
    There ya go, you killed him.

    You'll get Charon's Wrath, your final magic. To test it out some enemies will
    appear, you won't lose any magic until you kill them all. Head into the temple.
    This place is basically an arena, you have to fight a lot of enemies, what do
    you expect it's the last place. Just play the way you do and usually after 
    every round there will be health or magic chests. When you reach the rooms with
    the medusa statues in them quickly destroy the first 2 or 3 with your gauntlet
    so that you can have some room to fight in. Save whenever you get the chance.
    When you reach the crank you can break the walls, and some demon birds will come
    out. 
    
    At the top you have to fight a fierce medusa, she does a different attack than
    the normal medusa. She grabs you and you can't escape and pertrifies you 
    instantly, and with those harpies around this area can be annoying. Kill the 
    birds first then focus on the medusa. Exit north and save.

    Well you made it, the final boss, you should be able to take her down quite 
    easily if you upgraded your equipment. There are 2 phases for this battle.
    
    She starts out by doing charge, double punch and rock throw. You can parry both
    the double punch and charge, but of course rolling away is another option. Don't
    try to parry the rock throw you'll just get hurt. Make sure to always parry her
    charge then she'll be sent backwards and do a rock throw, dodge the rock throw
    by rolling and hit her once with a charged punch then quickly roll away to dodge
    her double punch. Efreet can come in handy here also since it makes her flinch 
    when you use it.
    
    There is an alternative, but it is a little bit harder to pull off. When you've
    dodged her rock throw walk up to her and wait till the her rock throw animation
    is done. Right when it's done hold /\ to hit her and soar into the air, while in
    the air move the analog nub in a direction that will leave you behind her. This 
    will allow you to dodge her double punch. She'll most likely just start back her
    charge and repeat the pattern.
    
    She'll drop a good amount of health for you if you drop her health down by 1/6.
    When you get her down to half HP a minigame will start.
    
    2nd phase: now she's mad, when she does her dark ball you can reflect it back
    to her and make her fall then attack, that's really what you have to do here. 
    Don't worry about the circle of light just yet you'll need it later, it can
    be sometimes annoying though since you might find yourself in the light and
    trying to reflect her dark ball only to shoot out a beam of light that doesn't
    hit her. You can also use your light of dawn here, if it's upgraded to the max
    then it'll take up a good ammount on her. To dodge the dark pillar and dark 
    light either roll around or run around. After you bring her HP down a bit more 
    she'll move to the pillar on the left, now when you reflect back her dark ball 
    she'll reflect your reflection back once. She'll then move on to the middle 
    pillar again and now she'll reflect it back to you twice, and when she moves the
    right pillar she'll reflect it back three times. You gotta reflect the 
    reflection, yeah.
    
    So when you bring her HP down significantly she'll fall and a black mist will
    surround her. You have to go into the circle of light press L and follow the 
    button commands. If you are sucessful you beat her, and you beat the game.

    The Challenge of Hades (EX2) ___________________________________________________
    ----------------------------/
    
    *All of the challenges that I have done are with maximum upgrades.
    
    Challenge 1 : Fiery Fate
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The objective here is to use Efreet to burn 50 soldiers, but the catch is that
    cyclops will soon enter the battle. If a cyclops kills a soldier then you have
    failed. The moment you see a cyclops appear equip the gauntlet of Zeus and 
    punch the crap out of him. You might want to circle the area once a while to
    see the black hole appear when the cyclops is about to come out. When you are 
    burning the soldiers try to get them in a group.
    
    Challenge 2 : Perfection
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This one is incredibly annoying. You have to defeat 20 fireguards without 
    getting hit. They do a spinning jump attack which has a pretty long range and
    will cut you down if you are in the air. My strategy for this is to use charged
    punches to kill them. 3 charged punches will kill one. Getting them in groups
    is a good way too since you hit all of them. With the charged punch they flinch
    every time. You should be very good at rolling also, when ever you see a
    fireguard start it's attack roll immediately out of the way, this challenge
    will test your reflexes. If you are good at parrying that is another option, 
    although it is a bit harder than rolling, of course you can do both too.
    
    Additional Ways
    ---------------
    
    By Antonio Castro
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    
    I just did Plume of Prometheus once they were all rounded up in a group, then 
    I'd roll away once and repeat. If the Fireguards are getting too spread out (or
    you're feeling a bit vulnerable) just roll around the arena for a bit to round 
    them up, then just start again. It's very important to use the range of the BoC
    since it keeps you far away from the FG's, so there's a smaller chance of being
    hit by their jump attack. As an added bonus it keeps them in the air so they 
    don't even have a chance to attack!
    
    By prince-lee isidore
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    
    I used the gauntlet of Zeus and punch those sorry to be matched up against mad 
    man like Kratos fireguards once they are by themselves. Once they regroup I 
    double jump towards the group and use Olympic Thunder (L + /\) in mid-air fully 
    charged. You crash down on them with the strength of Zeus, this would cause 
    those sorry fools within the diameter to be thrown into the air. Choose one to 
    knock around and repeat.
     
    A trick also to avoid being hit by anyone who wants to jump in from outside and
    sneak a hit in as you finish the Olympic Thunder. Is as they almost reach you is
    to point the analog stick in their direction and grab them. This stops their 
    attack and you can enjoy watching them get kicked in the chest for trying to 
    steal one in on you. 
    
    Challenge 3 : Life is Short
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In this battle your health is droping down rapidly, your objective is to defeat
    all the enemies before you die. At the beginning there will be a minotaur always
    use your gauntlet of Zeus and do charged punches (Hold []) to kill all the 
    enemies quicker. When fighting the minotaur make sure to dodge his charge attack
    and don't kill any of the people yet. When you kill him demon birds will come, 
    40 of them. You can let your health slide down to a cosiderable ammount when 
    fighting the demon birds but when you feel like it's to low, kill the people to 
    get health. The demon birds die in one hit with a charged punch, and try to get
    them in clusters. Once you kill them all ,fire defenders will come. Right when 
    you see them appear punch the crap out of them, 3 charged punches will kill one,
    there are only 3 of them.
    
    By prince-lee isidore
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    
    Quickly switch to the blades of chaos as soon as the challenge starts, you don't
    have time to waste because LIFE IS SHORT (lol). As soon as the hell fire portal 
    appears, do the plume of prometheus combo ([],[],/\) on the minotaur this would 
    shatter the first layer of his armor. He should be half to three-quater way out 
    when you finish the 1st combo. Repeat the plume of prometheus combo again 
    immediately by the time you finish this one he'll be out and ready to ram into 
    you with one those short bull charges. Evade it and repeat the plume of 
    promethus combo again, this would remove his 3rd and final layer of armor. 
    Quickly switch to the gauntlet of Zeus and smoke him with Charon's Wrath (R + O)
    or vice versa. With the fire cooking on his flesh you'll be able to get 4-5 
    shots in, (i advise you take 4 and don't get greedy... every piece of life you 
    lose is costly as you can see LIFE IS SHORT.) Now get away from him by evading 
    to the center of the room, don't worry that you killed one of the prisoners 2 
    soon while you were frying and punching that bad ole minotaur, because you were 
    loosing blood while you were knocking him around so there is no loss. Now that 
    you are in the middle of the room and far away form the minotaur, he'll rush 
    towards you with a longer version of the bull charge. So evade it and knock him 
    around again with Charon's Wrath and a combo. He will either do a short bull 
    charge or swing his weapon, evade again and after about 3 punches he'll die. 
    
    It will take about 2-3 seconds before the demon birds comes so stock up on life 
    because you got a lot of smashing to do using grab button (O). While you are 
    killing these demon birds your life is gonna get low, use the cyclone of chaos 
    (L + []) to kill the rest of prisoners and damage the birds at the same time. 
    Once your done taking the remaining life go back to grabbing and smashing the 
    rest of demon birds. The last bird usually doesn't follow the pack and will 
    remain by itself so try to be in the middle of the room when finishing up the 
    last of them. Then there are the fire defenders, as soon as they are coming out
    use Charon's Wrath and 2 punches from the gauntlet of Zeus will kill them, 
    repeat for the next 2 and there you have it challenge 3 complete!
     
    Challenge 4 : Crunch Time
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    For this challenge you have to break all the objects in the room before the time
    runs out. You have 60 seconds and have to break 40 objects. Right when the 
    challenge starts immediateley use Efreet to shatter the circle of objects around
    you. Now with your gauntlet of Zeus head up and destroy the little objects, for
    the petrified people use a charged punch to destroy them in one shot. Now 
    destroy the Zeus statue, 6 charged punches and continue on to the medusa and
    soldier statues. For these ones get in the middle of the soldier and medusa
    and do three charged punches, this should shatter them both, then move on to
    the others. When you move on to the next soldier and medusa make sure to break
    the little objects on the way. This is how I did it and I had 10 seconds to
    spare.
    
    Challenge 5 : Epic Brawl
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is one of the easier challenges, it's just a fight with lots of enemies,
    no catch. There is a blue and green chest incase you need to refuel. The battle
    has tons of harpies, they can be very annoying so I suggest using the blades of 
    chaos and jumping then pressing /\ to make the harpies jump then just press () 
    to grab them, killing them instantly. For the cyclops and hell soldiers use the 
    gauntlet of Zeus to make it easier. That's it really.

    This section is strategies on how to defeat those big baddies in god mode. Since
    most people tend to get stuck, I've found some ways to easily take take of those
    annoying enemies. These strategies may come off as being cheap but if you want
    the easy way use them.
    
    *While doing this I havn't upgraded my blades of chaos at all so there might be
    easier ways, you can tell me your strategies as well.

    All of the enemies in the box above can be killed by grabing. Just keep grabing
    them over and over until they are dead. For the wall climber you just have to 
    keep taping [] to kill them easier. 
    
    Cyclops 
    ~~~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    You have to be quite good at rolling for this. The quick rolling technique can
    be incredibly helpful here, (while rolling tap /\). Try to keep a far distance
    from him so as not to get his from his attacks. Once he is done an attack hit
    him with a plume of prometheus and quickly roll away since he'll be starting 
    another attack. Keep doing this over and over and you will have him beat after
    a while. This can be used when there is multiple cyclops on the screen too but
    it will be harder. You have to roll more and try to seperate them if you can,
    as you know they walk slow.
    
    GAUNTLET OF ZEUS:
    It's the same strategy as above but this time hit him with a charged punch
    (hold []). You can get in two punches if you end with a quick roll. 
    
    Screamer
    ~~~~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    When you first see her in the black hole immediately Hold /\ to send her flying
    into the air, but don't hold it too long because you don't want to jump. Now
    grab her (orion's harpoon) and then after you press () go straight to holding
    /\ again and do this over and over. If you lose it then do this combo to send 
    her flying again, [], Hold /\ and it should lift her in the air. What you will 
    be doing is continously grabing her, and surrounding enemies will not attack 
    you. 
    
    Sabretooth
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    Constantly do plume of prometheus to make him flinch, and block when you see him
    about to attack, or you could jump and land in a few aerial attacks.
    
    GAUNTLET OF ZEUS:
    He always flinches when he's hit with a charged punch, so keep doing that.
    
    Ram Warrior/Bomber
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    Jump and do one heavy attack to make them go in the air then continously grab
    them over and over, tap the () button until they're dead.
    
    GAUNTLET OF ZEUS:
    Charged punches are the way to go.
    
    Fire Guard
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    Get them in the air by either doing hyperion ascension or jump and press /\. 
    Once they are in the air keep doing orion's harpoon over and over.
    
    Harpy
    ~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    Do one heavy attack or jump and do one heavy attack near them to make them go in
    the air then press () to grab them killing them instantly.
    
    Minotaur
    ~~~~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    This guy can be really annoying but what you do is stay as far away from him 
    as you can and wait till he does the charge attack, quickly roll out of the way
    and give him a plume of prometheus or something and run away from him. I know
    that this way is a little risky but since he has a long range when swinging
    that sword and you can't block it, it's the more convienient way. Keep doing 
    this over and over, once you get the pattern down it'll be easy.
    
    GAUNTLET OF ZEUS:
    Same as above but hit him with a charged punch, you can get away with atleast
    2 or 3 of them then run away.
    
    Fire Defender / Hell Defender 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    These guys are probably the hardest enemy in god mode. The only way I have been
    able to beat them is to parry every attack and counter with a plume of 
    prometheus. This is very hard to do and one mistake can leave you dead. It took
    me countless tries but in the end I succeeded.
    
    GAUNTLET OF ZEUS:
    With this weapon they are a piece of cake, hit them with charged punches to make
    them flinch every time. 
    
    Medusa
    ~~~~~~
    BLADES OF CHAOS:
    This is the same one used for the screamer strategy. Even when there are 2 
    medusas if you use the same strategy it'll be an easy fight. If she is 
    continously doing her Gorgon Gaze, which she likes to do, quickly try to pull
    off a plume of prometheus to make her flinch and then start back the strategy.
    
    GAUNTLET OF ZEUS:
    Charged punches are the way to go since they always make the medusa flinch.
