Unfortunately, you've come stuck, and have gone to the internet for assistance. Then you, my friend, are at the right place. This guide is all about getting you through the 5 rather tricky challenges and get the (disappointing) rewards. Some of the challenges are pretty difficult and could take you a while to master (particularly challenge 3), so try to keep calm as you plod through these levels. At times you may feel like smashing your PSP, if so just give yourself a rest and grab a coffee- I am not prepared to replace your PSP if you break it in the process of playing these challenges! Finally good luck and may the Gods grant you safe passage through these challenges... Note, during this walkthrough I refer to the square button on the PSP as , the circle button as (), the X buttons as X and the triangle button as /\. <===Weapons and Attacks (INT002)===> Here are a list of the main weapons and attacks that I think you will need to use during these challenges. Check your game manual or the options screen in the game itself to check out the full list of attacks. Blades of Chaos (assuming fully upgraded): Controls Comment  A simple lightweight attack. If you keep mashing down the square button you can pull off a handy combo that can cause a fair amount of damage. () Orion's Harpoon- Used for grabbing onto enemies with a circle on their heads (when nearly dead) to initiate a mini-game or to kill small enemies such as birds. , , /\ Plume of Prometheus- A useful quick combo that can push enemies away and cause significant damage.  (5 times), /\ Similar to the first large combo but the final hit causes much more damage. L +  Cyclone of Chaos- useful for clearing out lots of small enemies (e.g. bats). Also can be done in the air. /\, /\, /\ Spirit of Hercules, a great, powerful attack for big and slow enemies. L + () Rampage of the Furies- Long combo that can cause great damage but can leave you a bit vulnerable like the Cyclone of Chaos. Can also be done in the air. L + /\ A really powerful attack but again it is quite slow and isn't a good idea with small and fast enemies. Can also be done in the air (which can make the combo faster). Gauntlet of Zeus (assuming fully upgraded): Controls Comments  A simple attack. If you keep pressing the square button you can pull off a handy short combo that can cause real damage. L +  Olympic strike- an attack in which you charge up the gauntlet and let an unsuspecting enemy have it. It is very powerful but can be slow. Sometimes just holding L1 and tapping  instead of charging it up can be useful as it knocks enemies back and still causes good damage, enabling you to have space to mash them some more. It can also be used in the air, which is quick and powerful. L + () Lightning Thrash- A useful run up which can be used in conjunction with a  or /\ to cause considerable damage to nearby enemies. Also can be done in the air. L + /\ Olympic Thunder- As the name suggests, this is a big and powerful weapon. Like the Olympic Strike it has to be charged up but can cause loads of damage to nearby enemies. Very useful in areas crowded with enemies. It can take a few valuable seconds to charge up though, which can leave you vulnerable. It can also be used in the air, which I highly recommend as oppose to doing it on the ground, as it is much faster to charge up. The Efreet This is definitely the best of all the magic powers, as it is quick, can cause huge damage to nearby enemies and you are invulnerable whilst you use it. It is initiated by holding R and pressing /\. It is certainly worth upgrading as oppose to the other magic powers. After upgrading it to level 2, you can tap () after initialling the Efreet to cause the demon thing to pound the ground some more and trigger more damage. Upgrading it to level 3 causes the demon to cause a large explosion before it vanishes, which can really rack up the damage to your enemies. Light of Dawn Another ranged magic power in God of War and again it is very limited in its uses and is not really needed in the normal game at all. It is initiated by holding R and pressing , and can be charged at level 3. However, in challenge 3, it can prove to be an extremely useful weapon if upgraded to level 3. It is relatively cheap to do and I definitely advise doing so before starting challenge 3. Charon's Wrath This is reasonably useful during normal game-play. It causes some enemies to be stunned, leaving you with a great chance to mash your enemies. The magic power also hits the enemies significantly itself, but it only really works well on smaller enemies. It is initiated by holding R and pressing (). It is pretty useless in the Challenges of Hades, so you don't need to upgrade this if you are short on orbs. Sun Shield This shield is a bit like the Golden Fleece in God of War 2 in that it can cause you to parry your opponent's attacks by tapping L just before an opponent attacks you, and also can reflect ranged attacks if you press L just before a ranged weapon hits you. However, it isn't as great as the fleece as it doesn't block as much (in particular, Medusa's gaze). However, it is still worth investing in the upgrade, as it is cheap and allows you to cause significant damage after a parry, by pressing  or /\. <===A Few General Tips (INT003)==> * Try to be as quick as possible. A lot of these challenges have time limits of some kind and you will have to cause a lot of damage in a short space of time, without damaging yourself. In these situations the Gauntlet of Zeus is often preferred, as its attacks cause more damage and the combos are quicker. * Parry and evade a lot. Parrying attacks knocks your opponent away and gives you time to launch a powerful attack of your own. Make sure you practice parrying attacks as it can prove to be a lifesaver. Evading is also great, especially against the larger enemies, whose attacks cannot be blocked. It can get you out of a tight pickle and is quicker that running a short distance. It is a bit more difficult to do on the PSP than on the PS2 so make sure you are comfortable with it. * Try to avoid doing the long combos. Whilst they can cause some great damage, they leave you vulnerable to attack and can't be stopped mid-way through (e.g. Cyclone of Chaos). These attacks are OK for small enemies but only try to use them when you are confident you won't be hit mid-way through your attack. *Initialling mini-games is not always a good idea, particularly when there is a time limit of some kind, and sometimes they can be difficult to pull off. If you are under time constraints, just continue using your weapons to defeat the enemy faster, but when there are no time constraints, I'd still recommend activating mini-games. * If you are being pounded by enemies the Efreet can often save you. It causes huge damage to enemies nearby and makes you invulnerable whilst it is activated. It is a MUST to have this at level 3 before you start any of the challenges. The Efreet is also fantastic against Medusas, if you ever come up in a situation where a Medusa is attacking you with a Medusa's gaze, launching the Efreet will protect you and mash the Medusa, and is less work than continuously rolling away from the gaze. * Always attack birds by tapping circle when facing one, as this will kill them quickly and you are invulnerable whilst in the process of killing a bird in this way. * Block when you can- it is easier than rolling and takes less time. It is also less risky than parrying, though not as effective. However, blocking is very good in places where you are being crowded out by enemies. * Most importantly try to avoid being hit at all costs, even if it costs a little time. It is important Challenges 2, 3 and 5 in particular that you keep your health as high as possible. So roll/block/parry instead of attacking when you are under the risk of being attacked yourself, particularly when low on health (you could argue the same cannot be said for Challenge 3). So... on to the main walkthrough... <==Challenge 1- Fiery Fate (CHA001)===> ------------------------------------------------ Mission: Burn 50 soldiers with the Efreet | Main Weapon to Use: The Efreet | Time Limit?: No | Difficulty: 4/10 | ------------------------------------------------ This one is tricky but is easier to do once you know the tactics. To do this challenge, having the Efreet on level 3 is a MUST. Right- first of all, wait until the enemies are spawned and hold down L1 to block until a lot of the soldiers surround you. Now unleash the wrath of the Efreet, making sure you tap () to get the maximum out of your attacks. You will soon see a Cyclops appear and he will go after the other soldiers. When you see him spawn run next to him and walk in front of him until he (and therefore you) are near some soldiers. The Cyclops doesn't seem interested in killing you, so it is fine walking in front of him in this way. When it looks like he is about to attack, use your Efreet again, and you should damage both the Cyclops and some more soldiers. Use it one more time and the Cyclops should be dead. More soldiers will now appear, again round them up near you and unleash the Efreet. Sometimes jumping into a crowd of soldiers and using Efreet in the air is also very effective. Try to steer the soldiers near a magic/health crate, so you can open it when you have killed these enemies- the trick is to open it when there is a small gap in the enemies dying and new ones spawning. Make sure you don't pick up health- you shouldn't lose much health if any in this challenge and you need all the magic you can get. Having said that don't leave it until you have run out of magic to get some more- leave enough so you can do one more Efreet in case you can't open the crate before more enemies surround you. Continue using the same tactic of bringing the soldiers together before killing them with the Efreet. Eventually another Cyclops will appear- use the same tactic as with the first Cyclops. When you run low on magic again, do the same trick as you did to get the first magic/health crate. Carry on using the same techniques as before- there will be another 2 Cyclopes to deal with. As long as you don't waste your magic killing one or two soldiers you should have more than enough magic to complete this challenge. Remember that the Cyclopes aren't part of the 50 soldiers you have to kill- so don't waste magic killing them if you are running low. Once you get the hang of this challenge, you will find that it is not to bad to complete. <==Challenge 2- Perfection (CHA002)===> ------------------------------------------------ Mission: Kill 20 fire guards without being hit | Main Weapon to Use: Gauntlet of Zeus | Time Limit?: No | Difficulty: 7/10 | ------------------------------------------------ This one can be very annoying, especially being hit when there are only a few enemies left to kill. The weapon of choice is the Gauntlet of Zeus. The trick is to try to attack them by double jumping and pressing L + /\ to perform the Olympic Thunder. It is a great weapon as it mashes the fire guards and pushes them away. If you see a guard about to hit you whilst in mid jump try to angle your jump away from him. Also try to kill as many soldiers as possible at once with the Olympic Thunder. The most annoying thing is when the fire guards hit you just when you are about to jump. There are two ways to deal with this- if your parrying skills are good you can parry all of their attacks, including that jump-and-hit attack that they do (just blocking does not protect you against this attack). You can also try rolling away, which is also effective, and easier to do than parrying. However, if you are in a crowd of fire guards there may be nowhere to roll, in which case the only way to protect yourself if a guard is about to attack is to parry. Try to improve your parrying skills if you can't do it- the final boss is a great place to practice in the main game as most of Persephone's attacks can be blocked in the first phase of the boss. Sometimes this challenge is just a case of luck- just hoping that the guards don't hit you or spawn in annoying places. With several attempts you should hopefully be able to pass this challenge. Note: It is arguable that the above stratergy isn't really a stratergy, just relying on luck. Whilst it works after a few attempts, it does involve you being lucky. Fortunately, QUBQ came up with a real stratergy to complete this challenge. This stratergy only involves two attacks, uncharged Olympic Strikes (L + ) and a lot of evading (or rolling, if you prefer). The idea is to use the Olympic Strike to damage a group of enemies before rolling away from all of their attacks. Roll as much as you need to get to get to safety and when you are safe, use the same attack against them. Continue doing this and you should eventually kill the 20 fire guards. If you are feeling lucky (or brave), you can try hitting the enemies with the Olympic Strike, rolling away and then straight away using the Olympic Strike again to cause serious damage to the fire guards. The trick with this tactic is to keep your rhythm and not to take too many chances. Try also to group the guards together, so your attacks do maximum damage. Just choose the tactic you feel more happy with and you should be home and dry with this challenge. <==Challenge 3- Life is Short (CHA003)===> ------------------------------------------------ Mission: You are losing health rapidly- kill | all of your enemies to survive | Main Weapon to Use: Gauntlet of Zeus | Time Limit?: Yes (your health meter) | Difficulty: 7/10 | ------------------------------------------------ Note: Thanks to tYRE_602 on gamespot.com for the hint on how to beat the minotaur. This can be infuriating challenge can take a while to finish- so grab a coffee and make sure you are as calm as possible before giving this challenge a try. This is also the one place when the Light of Dawn can be invaluable- I suggest you upgrade it to level 3 before starting this challenge. It is fairly cheap in terms of orbs and will make the first part of this challenge much easier. If you have used this guide before, you may have noticed I have reduced the difficulty level of this challenge. This is thanks to M Werkz, who showed me a brilliant way of quickly finishing the birds that you have to encounter in this challenge. When you start the challenge a minotaur will come out of the ground. When he starts to pop out mash him with the Light of Dawn- hold down R and tap  as fast as you can. After a while he will get into a sprinting position and then charge at you. Roll out of the way, as this attack can cause plenty of damage and you won't have enough health left to complete the challenge. Continue pounding him with the Light of Dawn, rolling away from all his attacks- whilst they are powerful they are slow and fairly predictable so you should be able to roll away from his attacks. Eventually you will run out of magic, so switch to the Gauntlet of Zeus and hit him a few times. You should find that the Light of Dawn did plenty of damage so you only need a couple of hits to finish the minotaur off. He will deposit some health when he dies so make sure you grab it all. If you need any more health, kill one of the people on the pillars at the front, but if you have finished the minotaur fast enough you should find you will only need to kill one, or at maximum two people to get full health. You will now be made to wait around for a while whilst you lose more precious health. Finally, some birds will appear. There is more than one way to deal with these pests, so try all of them and pick which one you think is the best. My personal choice (again, thanks to M Werks) is double jump in the air and use () attacks. When they appear begin to continuously double jump and tap () to kill the birds, making sure you position Kratos near a cluster of birds each time. This seems to be the quickest and safest way of dealing with these pests, as the animation doesn't take that long and you are pretty much invulnerable whilst in the process of killing the birds. Continue double jumping and taping () to finish the birds- there are plenty of them and it could take you a while. Try to draw the birds, closer to the bodies- that way when you get a chance you can quickly kill the people and grab the health. It is not necessarily wise to wait until you have low health to kill the people- just kill them as soon as you have time and you can utilise all of the health they give you (so don't kill them when you have full health or otherwise the health they give you won't do anything). Another popular way to deal with the birds is with the Olympic Thunder (L + /\) attack (thanks Garrick Tan for this suggestion). The trick is to double-jump into a crowd of birds and then press L + /\. This is very effective as kills a fair few birds very quickly, but just watch out that you don't get hit whilst using this combo, or you will lose precious health. Another method is to use the Olympic strike attack (L + ) without charging the attack, to kill the birds (thanks QUBQ for this tactic). Again this is a fast combo and kills birds with one hit, but be wary that you don't get hit whilst using this combo, or you will lose precious health. Just choose the attack that you feel most comfortable with. After what seems like an age the birds will stop coming. Quickly kill any remaining people and walk to the centre, keeping a finger over the L and  buttons. You need to be just shy of a quarter of a bar of health to be able to complete this challenge. After a while you will eventually see a fire defender come out of the ground. As soon as you see where he is being spawned press and hold L and  to charge an Olympic Strike. Once fully charged release the buttons to charge the attack at the fire defender. If it was fully charged he should be killed in one go. If not tap square quickly to finish him off. There will be 2 more fire defenders to kill in the same way and they will appear one at a time. The game makes you wait around for a while before each one appears by which time you will have lost quite a bit of health. This can be extremely infuriating and you may often finding yourself die right at the end. Just keep calm and if you die have another go- it is very easy to get frustrated on this challenge. After enough attempts you will hopefully get success with this challenge. <==Challenge 4- Crunch Time (CHA004)===> ------------------------------------------------ Mission: Break all objects before time runs out| Main Weapon to Use: Gauntlet of Zeus | Time Limit?: Yes | Difficulty: 7/10 | ------------------------------------------------ After that horrible challenge you will now be faced with a slightly easier, but no means simple challenge. Once you grasp the technique though you should find that it can be done with enough practice. When you see the instructions at the bottom before you start the challenge, hold down R as you press X. As soon as the message disappears tap /\ to initiate the Efreet. This should destroy all the nearby objects, but make sure you DON'T tap (), as this will waste precious time. When you did the Efreet you will have seen the Medusa statue things in the corners do Medusa's gazes at you. There are 8 of these around the room and they are activated alternately, so the ones that did the Medusa's gaze when you did the Efreet won't do it next time round. This gives you a chance to break the objects without being turned to stone. When you have finished with the Efreet, go to the stone man that is standing diagonally left to where you started (in a North-West direction), directly in front of where a Medusa statue did a Medusa's gaze. Using the Gauntlet of Zeus, destroy this statue and work your way around the room in a clockwise direction, destroying all of the stone men and pillars as you pass them. Don't destroy the big statues on the edges of the room yet- we will deal with them later. Use simple  attacks- don't bother using any charged attacks as these take too long to initiate and waste time in the process. If you have timed yourself right, you will just about avoid all of the Medusa's gazes taking place around the room. If however, find yourself being hit by a Medusa's gaze roll away, as being turned to stone will waste too much time and you will probably fail the challenge Once you have destroyed the small objects, move on to the larger objects, on the edge of the room, avoiding the huge statue at the front of the room for now. Use the same attacks and again work your way around in a clockwise direction, making sure you are not standing directly in front of a Medusa statue when breaking one, as you will be turned to stone if it does a Medusa's gaze. When you have finally destroyed the larger statues, you will have one object left to break, the huge statue at the front. You will need about 6 seconds to destroy it, so if you have less than 5 seconds left you might as well restart the challenge. Again use simple  attacks, and with practice you should be able to complete the challenge with a few seconds left to spare. Note: You may find this video by kollgian on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rPPH5_LFFA&feature=related very useful, as it helped me pass this level. Thanks kollgian! Hint from Garrick Tan: when hitting the statues on the outside + medusas, it is good to stay in between 2 while tapping  as it hits both at the same time, and that can be done in conjunction with hitting the big statue, not needing to skip it, saving valuable running time! <==Challenge 5- Epic Brawl (CHA005)===> ------------------------------------------------ Mission: Kill all your enemies | Main Weapon to Use: Gauntlet of Zeus | Time Limit?: No | Difficulty: 5/10 | ------------------------------------------------ After all the previous challenges, you would expect this challenge to be a nightmare. Given the name, it also seems like a monster challenge. You will, however, be disappointed (or delighted, depending on which way you look at it). Whilst this challenge isn't as easy as pie, it isn't too difficult and can definitely be finished after a few attempts. Just a note before you start, you will encounter many big enemies who can be finished with min-games (when a "()" appears above their heads). I highly recommend finishing them off in this way when you can. When you start the challenge, some birds will be spawned. These are tougher than the birds in challenge 3 but they are still not difficult to kill. Switch to your Blades of Chaos and hit them once with  and then press () in their direction to kill them. Continue doing this even after you see guards spawn from the ground- remember you are invulnerable whilst killing the birds. If a guard tries to hit you whilst at work killing the birds just parry or block their attacks, or press () to cause a bit of damage to them. When all of the birds are dead, switch to the Gauntlet of Zeus and use the Olympic Thunder (L + /\) in mid-jump to take care of the guards. Try to clump them together before using the attack as you will cause more damage this way. Again, parry or block their attacks when they are about to attack you. Even if they do, their attacks don't really cause much damage. Eventually once you've dealt with these, Medusa's will spawn. These will pose the biggest problem in this Challenge, as the Medusa's gaze can cause instant death if someone hits you whilst you are turned to stone. Constantly hit them with  with the Gauntlet of Zeus to prevent them from using Medusa's gaze. Another effective attack you can use is the Olympic strike (L + ), without charging the attack. Continuously doing this pounds the Medusas to the ground, and they can't really get up, making it extremely useful in this challenge. More guards will appear but try to focus on the Medusa's primarily, as they are your biggest threat. If a Medusa does a Medusa's gaze quickly use the Efreet to damage them and stop the Medusa's gaze. Furthermore, you are protected from the gaze when using the Efreet. Alternatively you could roll away, but the Efreet is a more effective option. Continue using this method and when you have a chance also deal with the guards. There will be a small pause when new enemies re-spawn, use this time to get either a crate of health or magic, depending on what you need most (the crates are to the left and right of the arena). The medusas will eventually die off and you will be left with guards. Just use the Olympic Thunder in mid-jump to kill them. After killing these guards two Cyclopes will join the scene. To kill them, use charged Olympic Strikes (L+). Their attacks are powerful but slow, so roll away when you see that they are ready to launch an attack. More Cyclopes will appear. If you run short of health and didn't pick it up before, lure the guards away from the crates and then run to the health crate and open it. The Cyclopes are too slow and won't reach you before you reach the health crate. You can also use the Efreet here to attack them- use a similar tactic if you need to get the magic crate if you didn't pick it up before. The Cyclopes will eventually go, use this opportunity to open any magic/health crates if you haven't already. More Medusa's will now appear- deal with them the same way you did before. If you run out of magic, just roll away from them when they are doing a Medusa's gaze. Don't do an Olympic Thunder (L + /\) attack in the air when near a Medusa, as if you get turned to stone whilst in the air, you will die when you hit the floor. Continue pounding the Medusas and guards- there will be plenty of guards spawning so continue hammering them. More birds will join the fight, so switch to your Blades of Chaos and hit them with  before pressing () when facing them. Remember to try to kill them before the guards, as they are a nuisance when you are trying to kill the guards. You could use the Olympic Thunder to kill them too, but it is safer to kill them using the Blades of Chaos in the way described. There are many birds to deal with so just take your time in killing them. Once you are sure the birds are gone, continue killing the guards. A knight may also show up (in my game, he sometimes shows up, but sometimes doesn't, I don't know if this is just my game or what). If he appears, attack him with charged Olympic Strikes (L + ). After enough slaughtering you will finally complete the challenge, and with it the Challenges of Hades. Hip, hip, horary! <==Cheats (CHE001)==> Are you completely stuck, despite all the hours poured into this guide to try to make completing these challenges as easy as possible? Have I tried but failed miserably failed to help you via e-mail? Or is it the case that you simply can't be bothered? Whatever brought you to this section of the guide, there is an easy way out of the misery of these challenges- for players of God of War- Chains of Olympus who have the PAL version of the game (generally applies to Europe, but it works elsewhere too). To make things very easy, I have uploaded my profile game save for this game, it is on GameFAQs, so if you are reading this off another website, go to this address: http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/psp/save/938607.html. The one to download is the one by me (TheGoonerKid). Make sure you backup your old game save profile in case this does not work. If you want instructions as to how to upload the game save onto your PSP, see this solution by bdsport445 on http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070224113929AAaFowE&show=7. Not only does this game save complete the Challenge of the Gods for you, it also unlocks everything, including the treasures unlocked after finishing God Mode. So if you use this file in conjunction with the file from vanilla_sex on GameFAQs.com, you will effectively have a complete game (the file by vanilla_sex is a God Mode game save of the main game). How cool is that! I can imagine many of you with an NTSC copy of the game feeling a bit left out. However, I have reason to believe that the game save by JKiii on the same page also does the same as my game save, but for the NTSC version of the game. If you have any questions about the game save don't hesitate in contacting me at the e-mail address above. Finally, it would be very nice if you at least tried to follow my guide to complete these challenges, as it will make me feel very sad if all my efforts went to waste, and it feels a lot better to complete the game yourself :-). <==Rewards (REW001)===> So, you've battled through the 5 Challenges of Hades and finally managed to get through them. So what do you get in return? The answer, sadly, is not very much. You unlock 2 things: a McKratos costume for the main game and "The Lost Levels" movie. I have to admit I did like the McKratos costume. It definitely makes you laugh and the cut scenes in the game look hilarious with a guy wearing a kilt walking around. However, this does get boring eventually and the fact that he's so powerful makes the game too easy. The "Lost Levels" movie sounds better than it actually is. Some of the levels look great and its a shame more weren't added. However, there is no commentary to explain the levels or why they got dropped and the movie certainly feels like something they added at the last minute. It's a shame they didn't go into more detail. So after all that work, you don't really get much of a reward. One thing you can take away though is pride that you managed to complete it! <==Credits (END001)===> Well first and foremost, a big thank-you must go to the people at Ready at Dawn and of course the creators of God of War- Chains of Olympus, for making a great game and filling hours of what could have been boredom time! Also a big thanks to tYRE_602 on gamespot.com for the hint on how to beat the minotaur on challenge 3 and kollgian for sharing that YouTube video and helping me complete challenge 4. Otherwise I could have been stuck for hours on end! Big thanks also to QUBQ and Garrick for alternative stratergies to challenges 2 and 3, and to Ayden Snell for spotting a typo in challenge 5.
