About Me:
=-=-=-=-=

Hello, everyone. My name is David DeGregorio and I am a sophomore in 
college. I have recently decided to start writing FAQ's for my favorite 
games. This is my fourth FAQ to date and there will be more to come. 
This game came out a while ago for the PSP and it is a great prequel so 
I decided to do a FAQ on it. I have done my best to make sure there are 
no errors in the FAQ. If you find any, let me know and I will update as 
soon as I possibly can (and I'm not busy usually so it won't take 
long). Also, if you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc. just 
email me and I will email back. I check my email every day. It doesn't 
even have to be about the game. I will take any emails you send me. 
Anyway, I usually start to ramble around this time so I will get back 
on track.

=-=-=-=-=
Spoilers:
=-=-=-=-=

As usual, I will refrain from using spoilers in this guide. I don't 
believe in spoilers. They ruin the story for you, the gamer, and take 
away from the experience. So, yeah, no spoilers will be included in any 
of my guides. If you see something that looks like a spoiler, please 
let me know and I will edit that part or take it out completely. Thank 
you.

Getting Started:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

First of all, you will need a copy of God Of War: Chains Of Olympus. 
Buy it, rent it, or borrow it from a friend if you have to, however 
you will need the game to use this guide.

Pop the disc into your system and you're ready to go. You are in 
control of Kratos, the badass from the first two God Of War games. He 
isn't quite as badass in this game but he can still hold his own.

   The Shores Of Attica:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Kratos is on an adventure once again. This game details the tasks 
Kratos had to complete while he served the gods (before the first 
game). You begin on top of a building, fending off a Persian invasion. 
At the very beginning of the game, a few soldiers will show up to kill 
you. This is a tutorial where you will learn the controls and how to 
attack.

Use square for light attacks, triangle for heavy attacks, and circle 
for grabs. The combat system is simple but deep, so take some time 
getting acquainted with the controls and combat possibilities.

Kill the soldiers and a cut scene will play. Destroy the crates for red 
orbs. Red orbs can be used to upgrade weapons and magic in the start 
menu. More enemies will climb up the ladders, so kill them and go to 
the crossbow on the left.

Press circle and hold back the analog nub to fire the crossbow and 
destroy the boat. Another boat will create a hole in the building 
behind you. Jump down and kill the enemies.

The chest behind you has green orbs. These restore your health. You can 
open chests by holding circle. There are a few types of chests. Red 
chests have red orbs, green chests contain health, and blue chests 
contain magic. There are also unmarked chests, which contain either red 
orbs, Gorgon's Eyes (collect 5 to increase overall health), or Phoenix 
Feathers (collect 5 to increase overall magic). Some chests alternate 
between colors so you can choose what you want to pick up.

Open the door in front of you by pressing circle to grab the handle and 
pressing circle rapidly to open the door. Before you can finish opening 
the door, a Cyclops bursts in. It will try to crush you with a pillar. 
Press circle rapidly to fend of its attack. It will stumble backwards 
and get eaten by a larger monster.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                            Basilisk 1
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Personally, I have no idea why they call this a basilisk. Basilisks are 
giant snakes and this is actually a lizard. Anyway, you have to fight 
it, so get ready. This fight is everything you'd expect from a first 
boss. It's easy, the boss has a giant health bar on the bottom of the 
screen, and his attacks barely do any damage. If you don't want to get 
hurt for some reason you can avoid its attacks. It will either try to 
bite you or it will breathe fire. Roll (R + L + analog nub) to avoid 
this and you won't get hurt. Attack the boss as much as you can. After 
a couple of combos, the boss will drop health orbs. This will happen 
every so often, so you can't really die. When its health meter is down 
to around half, a circle command will appear over its head. Press 
circle to start a button pressing sequence. Press the onscreen buttons 
and the basilisk will be stunned. Press circle next to the giant stone 
column (next to the boss) and the boss will be defeated for now.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Walk outside of the building. A cut scene will play. Now, walk along 
the beach and destroy the wooden structures for red orbs. Avoid the 
balls of fire from the Persian ships and locate the battering ram on 
the left side. Push it up to the large doors.

Go to the right and open the red chest. Go to the left and open the 
chest for a Gorgon's Eye. Save your game at the save point. Return to 
the battering ram and rapidly press circle to break down the door.

Kill the soldiers here and walk forward. Archers will assault you from 
across the way. Jump in the water and swim across. Jump out of the 
water and kill those pesky archers. Once they're dead, kill the 
soldiers and go to the crank.

When you start to turn the crank, two soldiers will pop out of nowhere. 
Kill them and turn the crank again. Before you can go through the door, 
more soldiers will appear. Take them out and turn the crank a third 
time.

Run forward and roll through the door before it closes. Clear this area 
of enemies. Kill the archers first and then focus on everyone else. Go 
to the right and break through the wooden structure for chests with red 
orbs.

Go back and destroy the wooden structure on the left. A ladder will be 
revealed. Climb about halfway and jump to the platform behind you. A 
chest is hidden here that contains a Gorgon's Eye. Continue climbing 
the ladder to the top.

Press circle to kick down the blockade and continue forward. Kill the 
enemies and go left for a red orb chest. Go right now and balance 
across the beam. If you stumble, press X to pull yourself up. Go right 
and open the chest for health. Open the door and go through for a 
scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                         Persian King
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This guy isn't too hard but there are a few things you should watch 
for. His normal attack is a dual-slash combo with his sword. This is 
easily avoided. Next, his sword will catch on fire and he will do a 
single slash downwards. Roll away from this and he should miss by a 
lot. Lastly, he will summon a giant monster that will do a single 
ground pound. Everything in a small radius around this attack will be 
tossed aside. Roll away when this monster is summoned. There are a 
handful of Persians in this room that will try to distract you from the 
boss. They keep dropping into the room, so ignore them. Instead, focus 
on the king. Avoid his attacks and then get in a few combos on him. 
Green orbs will keep pouring out of him, so health isn't a big concern. 
Keep attacking and the circle command will appear above him. Press 
circle and the following onscreen buttons and a cut scene will play. 
When it's over, rapidly press circle to kill this wimp.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You now gain the Efreet spell. This is the giant monster summon that 
the King used. Test it out (R + triangle) on the enemies that appear 
after the boss is dead.

When they are no more, two gates will open in front of you. Go through 
the gate on the right and you will be treated to the famous sex mini-
game. Press the onscreen buttons and you will be able to pleasure the 
women. They will drop red orbs for you. I guess they were virgins then, 
haha. They won't drop any more orbs but you can replay the game as 
often as you wish.

Go through the gate on the left and save your game. Open the door and 
kill the soldiers here. Kick down the two ladders by pressing circle 
next to them. After all the enemies are dead, open the chest for health 
or magic and walk to the crossbow.

Grab the handle on the left and turn it towards the basilisk. Fire an 
arrow at the beast and it will leave the area. Open the door on the 
right and go through to the next area.

Ignore the crank for now. Climb the ladder at the far end and jump to 
the platform. Open the chests for red orbs and a Phoenix Feather.

Return to the crank and rotate it to descend to a new floor. Go down 
the hall and a cut scene will play. Now you have to kill a Cyclops. The 
Cyclops isn't too hard. Just stay at a safe distance and keep 
attacking. Use the Efreet to stun it and do some good damage. 
Eventually, the Cyclops will fall.

Open the health and magic chests and go left. Open the door and run 
down the hall. Kill the archers. Open the chests for red orbs and a 
Gorgon's Eye. Save your game. Climb the wall in front of you.

Kill the soldiers and archers that appear. Go left and kill more 
enemies. Open the chest for health or magic. Head back and go right 
this time. Jump across to the other building and kill the archers. Open 
the chests for a Phoenix Feather and some red orbs.

Jump back to the walkway and go right. Destroy the wall on the right 
and pull the lever. You will descend to a lower level. Open the chest 
for health and go left. There is another red orbs chest here.

Go back to the health chest and go forward. Open the door and go into 
the next area.

Kill all of the archers and soldiers. Jump up to where two of the 
archers were to find a red orb chest. In the right side of the area, 
there is a small path leading to two more red orb chests.

Now that you have all the goods and the enemies are dead. Go back to 
ledge the archers were on before. Go towards the camera to find a large 
wooden crate. Push that to the pressure switch where the other archers 
were.

One of the doors is open but we're not done here. Grab the dead body 
that the basilisk dropped. Carry him to the next area and drop him onto 
the switch. The next door is open.

Walk down the hall, open the red chest, and save your game. Replenish 
your health and magic and continue forward. There is a chest with a 
Phoenix Feather a little ways down the passage. Walk to the end and 
open the door.

Run forward and the basilisk will appear once more.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                    Basilisk Final
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This isn't a hard battle. The basilisk has two main attacks. It will 
try to bite you or it will swipe at you with its claws. Roll to avoid 
the bite. To avoid the second attack, stay in the middle of the 
platform and he won't even use the attack. Start attacking the boss 
normally until it backs up. It will breathe a river of fire right 
afterwards, so double jump over it. Keep attacking and the boss will 
try to chomp on you. Alternate between L and R to avoid getting eaten. 
Keep forcing the boss to back up and it will climb the building. At 
this point, it will rain down fireballs. Just avoid them and run 
towards it. Press circle and rotate the analog nub to pull it down and 
drop a column on it. Repeat this pattern a second time. You can use the 
Efreet to make it faster if you want. After damaging it twice, attack 
the boss normally until the circle appears overhead. Press the onscreen 
buttons to finish off the beast. Watch the scene that follows.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Open the chest next to you for a Phoenix Feather. Slide down the rock 
wall and open the chest for red orbs. Go left and climb down the next 
wall. Save your game on the right.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
   The City Of Marathon:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

To the right of the save point is a staircase. Go up and break through 
the wooden panel that is blocking it. Go into the next room. A new type 
of enemy is introduced here. It's not too difficult to kill but I 
recommend using Efreet here just in case.

Go forward and break through the next wooden blockade. There are two 
red orb chests here. Go back a little and head left. You are now 
outside of the building.

Go forward and kill the enemies that appear. The building directly in 
front of you, with the open door, has a red orb chest.

Head left and kill more enemies. Roll down to the far end and kill the 
archers. Return to the green chest and get some health. Open the blue 
chest on the left.

The building directly behind the blue chest has a red orb chest inside.

To the right of the blue orb chest is another building with two red orb 
chests. Go forward for a cut scene. Jump onto the platform to the left 
of the burning box. There is a chest with a Gorgon's Eye here.

Push the box forward (flames dispel the fog) and open the gate. Go to 
the right and up a bit. To your left is a chest with another Gorgon's 
Eye. To the right is a chest with green orbs.

To the right of the chest is a door covered in fog. Gorgon-like enemies 
will continually spawn from this doorway. They won't turn you into 
stone, although they can stun you with their shrieks. After the first 
three are killed, they won't drop any more orbs, so turn the crank 
nearby and close the gate. They'll stop spawning now.

Head right some more and kill the archers. Open the red orb chest to 
the right. Return to the gate you just close. Jump onto the platform to 
the left of it. There is a statue here with a torch. Grab it and head 
into the fog where the archers just were.

You will come to a wheelbarrow full of hay. Throw the torch into it to 
set it on fire. Push the wheelbarrow forward. As you go, archers will 
appear on the left and right sides of the path. Jump over the fog, kill 
the archers and open the chests you find there. The first area has a 
red orb chest. The next one has a health chest and a chest with a 
Phoenix Feather.

Continue forward and you will get past the fog. A new enemy will emerge 
from the fog to kill you. It is like a saber-toothed tiger. It's not 
too difficult to kill, just stay at safe distance and attack. Use the 
Efreet and roll to avoid its attacks.

When it's dead, go right and break through the blockade of rocks. Kill 
the archers and open the chests for health and red orbs.

Climb the wall in front of you and save your game.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
   The Temple Of Helios:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

There's nothing you can do with the levers for now, so go left and 
cross the bridge. A cut scene will play and enemies will attack. Kill 
them and continue forward. Climb the wall at the end of the path and a 
scene will play.

Go forward and open the red orb chest on the left. Go back and jump 
into the water to the left of the staircase. There is a Gorgon's Eye in 
the chest to the left. Return to the Athena statue.

Go forward and go through the archway. Save your game and replenish 
your health.

Pull the lever and you will ascend to the next level. Kill the enemies 
and go right. There is a chest with a Phoenix Feather here. You can't 
go through the door to the north yet because of the enemy behind the 
gate who is constantly attacking you.

Instead, go left and defeat more enemies. Open the chest for health or 
magic and pull the lever. A gate will open to the left. You can't reach 
it from here, so go back to the elevator, pull the lever, and descend 
to the previous room.

Go back out to the courtyard and climb the stairs. When you get to the 
top, enemies will attack. Kill them to open the way forward. Continue 
down the path, go through the open gate, and open the chest for health 
or magic.

Turn right and kill the enemy that stopped you from opening the door. 
Pull the lever to open the gate in front of you. Now you're back at the 
door. Open the door and go down the hallway.

Continue down the hallway and you will come across a red orb chest. 
Open that and continue forward. In the next room, harpies will attack 
you. Kill them off quickly using grab attacks. To the left is a red orb 
chest.

Pull both statues forward and pull the levers behind them. Enter the 
door on the right and kill the enemies that spawn. Open the chest for 
health and pull the lever.

Exit this room and go through the open door on the left. Save your 
game.

Go right and open the chest for red orbs. Head through the open passage 
and go down either staircase. At the bottom, there are two red orb 
chests and a chest with a Phoenix Feather. Walk onto the circular 
platform.

Destroy the shiny objects that are holding up the platform. It will 
slowly descend as enemies attack you. When you kill all the enemies, 
the elevator will reach the bottom and a new enemy will appear.

Use the plume of Prometheus combo (square, square, triangle) to break 
its shield and attack from a safe distance. Keep attacking and the 
circle command will appear. Rotate the analog stick to decapitate it.

Get off the elevator and open the chests to the left of the stairs. 
There are three red orb chests and a health/magic chest. Climb the 
stairs and go through the door at the top.

The door will close behind you. To the right is a dead end, so go left 
and open the red orb chests. Knock over the pillar and walk across for 
a scene. Go to the right of the platform and you should see a shiny 
white orb on the ground.

Press circle to knock down another pillar. Walk across and head right. 
Open the chests for red orbs and a Gorgon's Eye. Go left this time and 
walk up the stairs. Go through the door and this will close behind you 
as well.

In this room, head left and open the red orb chest. Go up the staircase 
and head right. In this area there are two red orb chests and a 
Gorgon's Eye.

Go back down the stairs and destroy the throne to get the sun shield. 
You can use this to block and parry enemy attacks. Kill the enemies 
that appear and go to the door in front of you.

Open it and enter the next room. Save your game. Replenish your health 
and magic to the right and start to climb the large spiral staircase. 
You will emerge in the courtyard with the Athena statue from earlier.

Go up the stairs again and kill the enemies. Kill the archers first and 
use the Efreet on the saber-toothed enemies. When they're all dead, 
place the sun shield in the middle of the glowing circle and stairs 
will unravel.

Descend the stairs and open the door in front of you. In this next 
room, go to the left and open the red orb chest. Push the two statues 
until they lock into place. This will activate a handle on wall to the 
north.

Pull out the wall to create platforms. Open the door behind the horse 
statue and open the red orb chests you find there. Jump back down and 
pull out the wall again.

This time, before the wall retracts, run to the left side of the wall 
and enter the alcove in the wall. This will allow you to enter a room 
behind the wall.

Pull the statues back until the lock in place. A sun circle will appear 
on the ground. Jump up to it. Press L to activate the shield and 
rapidly press circle to shoot a sun beam at a symbol.

The stairs will be extended permanently and the horse statue will start 
to glow. Run to the back of the wall and open the chest to the left for 
a Phoenix Feather. Return to the other side of the wall and jump up to 
the horse statue.

Use the sun shield and one of the horses will be activated. Also, a 
staircase will lower back towards the door to this room. Descend the 
stairs and follow the path. At the end, go right and open the chest for 
a Gorgon's Eye.

Go left and enter the portal.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
   The Caves Of Olympus:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Go forward and save your game. Jump into the water and swim to the 
right. You will find a chest with a Gorgon's eye and two red orb 
chests. Swim to the left and climb the wall.

Climb to the top and go right. Grab Triton's Lance from the statue. 
Climb back down.

Dive down into the water and head left. Open the chests for red orbs. 
Go left and pass the first metal gate. Go to the second gate that is 
torn open. Go through and swim dash (Hold R and release) to break 
through the next gate.

Swim down the passage until you reach two chests. The left one has red 
orbs and the one on the right has a Phoenix Feather.

Continue down the passage, breaking through gates, until you reach the 
lever. Pull it to open the gate in front of you and raise a section of 
the wall to make it climbable.

Resurface and start climbing again. When you reach the fork, go left 
and climb to the top. Open the door and enter the next room. A giant 
enemy will appear and try to destroy you. Keep your distance and 
attack. Use the Efreet and roll to avoid its attacks.

When it's dead, open the chest for health or magic and go forward. Turn 
the crank in front of you and the bridge will extend. Open the door and 
watch the scene.

Walk left a bit and open the chest for magic. Continue forward until 
you reach deep water. Dive down and you will find a chest with a 
Gorgon's Eye. Resurface and continue swimming forward.

Kill the enemies that assail you and open the green chest for health. 
Save your game and go forward. Press circle to grab the primordial 
fire.

This will allow you to repel enemy attacks by press L right before the 
attack hits you. The three statues will come to life. Repel their 
attacks to destroy them.

When they're destroyed, you will gain the light of dawn. This is a new 
projectile spell that you can use to take out faraway enemies. Just 
hold R and press square to utilize this.

Take out the enemies that appear where the statues used to be and the 
floor will return to its previous state. Go left and open the chest for 
a Phoenix Feather.

Go right and open the chests for red orbs. Go back and go down the 
middle path. Open the door and kill the enemies that appear. Open the 
chests for health and magic and jump down into the water. Swim over to 
the save point and save your game.

Go back through the portal.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
   The Temple Of Helios 2:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Use the shield of Helios on the glowing part of the floor and walk down 
the path. Go left once you reach the platform and head down the path. 
Open the door in front of you. Go down the stairs and return to the 
lift you rode in before. Use the shield to raise the lift.

Kill the birds that attack you. Grab attacks work well for a quick kill 
and you can get a massive combo in this small area. Open the chests for 
red orbs and climb the stairs.


Go forward and open the chests for health and a Phoenix Feather. Save 
your game. Open the door and walk in for a cut scene.

Kill the enemies and look around the room. Go to the upper right corner 
and open the red orb chest. Go to the bottom left corner for a Gorgon's 
Eye. Now we have to solve this puzzle.

Go to the glowing part of the floor and use the shield to raise a beam 
of light. You can rotate the light left and right.

Push the lever so that the light beam turns left and hits a symbol. A 
statue will be revealed. Grab the statue and pull it to the circle on 
the lower left. Rotate the light again so it hits the statue and shine 
on a new symbol. A new statue is revealed.

Move this new statue to the lower right circle and shine the light on 
it to reveal a third statue. Leave this statue for now. Rotate the 
light to the right and it will hit a final symbol and reveal a final 
statue.

Now we have to use these statues somehow. Place the statues facing 
north on the lower pads. Place the right facing statue on the upper 
left pad and the left facing statue on the upper right pad.

A new statue will rise from the floor. Shine the light on this statue 
and all the beams will connect. Behind the center statue, under one of 
the light beams, a circle of light will now appear.

Jump into the center of it and hold L and rapidly press circle to shine 
a beam of light at the horse statue. It will rise. Insert the shield at 
the base of the horse to activate the second statue.

Return to lever that rotated the light. It has sunk into the floor but 
there's a glowing light here, so insert the shield to descend to a new 
level.

Go forward and open the chest for a Phoenix Feather. Return to the main 
hub and go left for a red orb chest. Go back once more and go right. 
Open the door and walk down the hallway.

Open the red orb chest and continue down the hallway. Open the chests 
for health and magic and climb the stairs. In this next room, go to the 
upper right corner and open the chest for a Gorgon's Eye.

This puzzle is much easier. Push the right statue until it locks in 
place and destroy the top. Jump on top, hold L, and rapidly press 
circle to reflect another light beam. Jump on top of the ledge and use 
the shield on the base of the horse.

A door will open next to you. Walk through it and go down the path. 
Slide down the wall and return to the horse statues from earlier. As 
you go, enemies will attack and you will be forced to battle. They 
aren't too hard. Use the Efreet and attack without mercy and the 
enemies will fall.

When you return to the horse statues, rotate each lever to bring the 
horses back to life. Place the shield in the glowing circle and a scene 
will play.

Save your game to the right and start to climb the wall. Go left and 
transfer to the ceiling. At the end of the path, drop down to the 
platform. Double jump to the right and walk forward a bit.

To your left you can see a couple chests. Double jump and grab onto the 
ceiling. Make your way to the chests and open them for red orbs and a 
Gorgon's Eye.

Go back to the path you were on before and jump forward onto another 
wall. Kill the enemies and head right. Jump to the right and climb to 
the top. Here you will face your first actual gorgon. They can turn you 
to stone, so roll twice to avoid their gaze and attack when they stop 
attacking.

Kill the three gorgons that attack and go through the archway.

Break the statue and go towards the screen. Climb down the wall and 
follow the path to reach a chest with a Phoenix Feather.

Return to the previous path and jump across the broken staircase. 
Follow the path and lots of enemies will attack. There are a three 
Cyclops and a bunch of fierce enemies. Don't let them corner you or 
surround you. Use Efreet if you have magic and keep attacking from a 
distance. Block with the shield to avoid damage and roll from the 
Cyclops. There is a health/magic chest to the left if you're having 
trouble.

When they're dead, jump onto the platform in front of you and open the 
red chest hidden behind the pillar.

Jump back down and follow the path. Jump the gap to the next area. Kill 
the birds that attack and break the wall to the north. A gorgon will 
attack. Kill it and open the chests for red orbs and a Gorgon's Eye.

Go to the right side of the area. There is a breakable wall on the 
left. Break through and grab the block. Push it against the upper right 
wall where the health chest is.

Jump up, open the chest for health, and jump up to the next ledge. 
Follow the path and climb onto the wall. Go right, behind the 
waterfall, and slide down at the end. Jump down into the next area.

Kill the enemies and press circle behind the pillar. It will fall over. 
Go under the archway and save your game.

Jump onto the fallen column and jump to the ledge. Climb the wall to 
the right. Run to the end of the path and kill all of the enemies. Kill 
the birds with grab attacks and take out the shield wielders with a 
quick plume of Prometheus followed by a fully upgraded Efreet.

When the enemies are all dead, a door will open back at the beginning 
of the path. Go through it and follow the path. Ascend the staircase 
and go through the archway. The door will close behind you.

Open the chests for red orbs. Go forward and enter the next room. 
Enemies will attack you here. Watch out for the moving blades on the 
floor and kill the monsters.

Go through the doorway and across the bridge. Open the chest for red 
orbs and save your game. Ring the bell for a scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                               Charon
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
It's finally time for another boss battle. The only problem is that you 
aren't supposed to win the fight. Once you get him to half health, you 
will succumb to him. To get to that point, you must know how he 
attacks. His first main attack is a scythe combo. Block, parry, or roll 
to avoid damage. His next attack is when he hovers a short distance 
away and shoots green energy balls at you. Run away or roll to avoid 
getting hit by these. His last attack is after he reaches half health 
and it will kill you instantly. This is supposed to happen so don't 
worry.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Rapidly alternate between L and R to break free of the chains. Go left 
and open the chest for a Phoenix Feather. Save your game.

Go forward now. Kill the prisoners for health because it is low right 
now. At the fork, go right and kill the enemies. Watch out for the 
archers because they will shoot you wherever you stand. Use magic if 
you have enough and block frequently. When they are dead, jump up to 
the archers and kill them. Open the chest for magic.

Go back to the fork and go left. Watch the scene and kill all the 
harpies. They aren't too hard.

When they're dead, go through the door to your left.

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
   The Depths Of Tartarus:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Go to the end of the path and open the door. Kill the enemies here and 
jump to the right. Kill the archer and open the chest for health or 
magic. Jump back to the left and jump down onto the chain. Go forward 
and save your game.

Climb the wall and kill some enemies. When they're dead, go right and 
climb to the top. Kill the harpies and the gorgon. The Efreet works 
well here.

To the right is a red orb chest. Pull the left and right statues until 
the lock in place and then turn the crank. Go into the opening and the 
wall will rotate again.

Go down the hall and get ready for another fight. In this room, a bunch 
of archers will attack along with a giant monster. Use the Efreet and 
kill the archers first. Focus on the monster next. Attack from a safe 
distance and it will go down quick.

Kill the rest of the enemies and the door to the left will open. Ascend 
the stairs and kill the soldier. Break through the wall to the right 
and open the red orb chest. Return to the room and go up the next 
staircase.

There is a gate blocking the door, so we can't go that way. Go back to 
the hole in the wall and shimmy along the wall to the other side. Break 
through the wall to reveal a lever and a chest with a Phoenix Feather.

Pull the lever to open a gate down below. Jump down and go through it. 
Open the chests for health and magic and ascend the stairs. Kill the 
archers and pull the lever.

Go up the next staircase and take the crypt keeper's out of the lock to 
the right. Kick the chair forward and it will fall off the ledge and 
break. Take the body and place it on the button. Place the key in the 
lock to extend a bridge.

Cross the bridge and open the chests for red orbs. Save your game. Go 
into the next room and kill the enemies. Go to the light on the floor 
and press circle to knock over the statue of Zeus. Go over to the 
gauntlet and pick it up. You have acquired the gauntlet of Zeus.

New enemies with shields will appear. Hold square and release to break 
their shields. Kill them now that they're defenseless. When they're all 
dead, leave the room and go back across the bridge. Break through the 
door and run away from the spiked wall that follows you.

Break through the next wall and destroy the Zeus statue as well. Break 
the statue on the left for a red orbs chest and take out the statue on 
the right to reveal a new path. Walk down it.

Open the door and switch to your blades by pressing down on the d-pad. 
Climb the wall to the north and kill the enemies here. Switch weapons 
when the shielded enemies appear. Open the chests for health and magic 
and turn the crank.

Climb back down the wall and kill more enemies. Go to the right and go 
across the chain that's extended (the one to the right of the other 
chain).

Climb the wall and save your game. Go left and jump off the cliff. Kill 
the harpies and the Cyclops. Break the rock over the crank with the 
gauntlet and turn both cranks. Go forward and run across the chain.

Turn left and jump across the platforms. Go down the next path and open 
the door.

Kill the archers to the left and head right. Open the door for a cut 
scene. Climb the wall and kill the Minotaur. Use the light of dawn to 
kill the archers. Break the rock over the crank and turn both of them.

One of the cranks lowers a platform with a red orb chest. The other one 
extends a chain. Cross it and save your game.

Go down the next hall and open the door. Kill the enemies and pull both 
levers. To the right of the levers is a wall you can climb. Climb up 
and latch onto the ceiling. Go to the end of the path and drop down to 
the floor. Open the chest for health and red orbs.

Go left and pull the lever to open a path in the last area. Go back to 
the room with the levers and jump down to the ground. Go left and climb 
onto the wall. Kill the enemies and head left. Slide down the wall and 
save your game.

Jump onto the gear and kill the enemies. Rotate the gear and it will 
slowly move to the other side of the area. Enemies will attack 
randomly, so stop turning and kill them.

When you reach the other side, jump down to the other gear and turn 
this. More enemies will attack, so just kill them and continue turning.

When you reach the other side, jump over the ledges and go to the shiny 
object. Press circle rapidly to make a chain bridge. Cross it and watch 
the cut scene.

Climb the wall and go down the path. Break through the wall and you 
will be back in the room with the saw blades on the floor. Kill the 
enemies and go right again. Break through the giant gate and your magic 
and health will be replenished.

Save your game and walk forward.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                             Charon
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This fight isn't too hard. Charon retains the scythe and orb attacks 
from the first fight, so dodge or block them and attack him. The Efreet 
works well here. When he starts to use the green flame attack, use the 
gauntlet of Zeus to break one of the pillars. If you do this he won't 
get the chance to attack. If you don't make it in time, the attack 
won't kill you but it will do some damage. After you break the first 
pillar, Charon gains a new attack. He will breathe fire at you and it 
hits multiple times. Stay away from him and wait for him to attack with 
the energy balls. Reflect them back to gain health. Use the Efreet if 
he starts a scythe combo and wait for him to try the flame attack 
again. Destroy a second pillar. Now he will create shockwaves by 
hitting the ground with his scythe. Jump over this to avoid it and keep 
attacking. When he tries to do his flame attack again, destroy the 
third pillar. When you destroy the pillar, a giant explosion will 
happen and Charon is stunned. The circle command will appear, so press 
it to impale him. Walk towards the mask on the floor. Charon isn't 
finished yet though. His top half will try to attack you. His only 
attack is his orb attack, so reflect the orbs and he will fall. The 
circle command appears, so press the onscreen buttons to kill Charon 
for good. A scene will now play.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
   The Temple Of Persephone:
   =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

You will receive Charon's Wrath, your final spell. Test it out on the 
enemies. It's not that good but it doesn't really matter because the 
game is almost over. Kill the enemies and walk forward. Open the chest 
for health and save your game.

Head forward and enter the temple. Go up the stairs and kick open the 
door. Kill all the enemies. The alcoves on the left and right have red 
orb chests.

Ascend the stairs and kick open the next door. Kick open the second 
door and enter the next area. Whip out the gauntlet and take out 
enemies. The statue heads will turn you to stone, so destroy them with 
the gauntlet. When the enemies are dead, kick open the next door and 
open the chests for magic, health and red orbs. Save your game.

Kick open the door and ascend the next staircase. More enemies will 
attack you here. Kill them and open the middle door. Descend the stairs 
and open the chests for health and red orbs. Return to the previous 
room.

Open the door on the right and go up the stairs. Open the next door and 
enter the next room. There are more statue heads here that can turn you 
to stone. Destroy them and kill the enemies.

Go through the next two doors and kill some more enemies. Open the 
chest for health if you need. Use the Efreet if the Minotaur overwhelms 
you. Go through the door once the enemies are dead.

Go down the next hall and open the door. Turn the crank and ascend to 
the next floor. The gorgons here will turn you to stone (you can't 
block it because it's an animation), so rapidly tap L and R to break 
free. Once they're dead, an armored Cyclops appears. When they're dead, 
open the chest for health and open the door to the right.

Go down the hall and open the chests for red orbs. Return to the 
previous room and open the center door. Go forward and open the chests 
for health and magic. Save your game.

Open the door and follow the path. Watch the scene when you reach the 
end. Press the onscreen buttons to rid yourself of all your powerups. 
Walk through the door to the left.

Watch the scene. Press circle rapidly to push aside Calliope. Now, to 
regain your powers, you have to kill the people in the Elysium fields. 
Snap their necks until you regain your blades and then continue killing 
everyone in sight. Kill the enemies that appear as well.

When the scenes are over, head towards the save point in the 
background. Another battle will commence before you reach it. Kill the 
enemies and go forward. Open the chests to replenish your health and 
magic and save your game. This is the final save point. No turning back 
now.

Walk up the stairs for a scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                              Persephone
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Phase 1: She has a few attacks in this phase. She will charge at you 
and slam down her fist to create a pillar of energy. Roll or block 
this. Next, she will do a punch combo. Roll to avoid this. Lastly, she 
will throw rocks at you. Don't try to block this, just roll. Start off 
the battle by blocking her charge and then rolling to avoid the rock 
throw. For the most part, it's best stay a safe distance away from her. 
Attack and watch for when she charges at you. It's better to roll away 
because this can do some damage. Whenever she jumps away from you, get 
ready to roll or use Efreet because she will do her rock throw. You 
can't get hurt when you use Efreet but you need magic to use it. When 
she loses 1/6 of her health, she will drop green orbs. Continue 
chipping away at her health and she will drop more orbs. When her 
health drops to half, an action sequence will start. Press the onscreen 
buttons to enter phase 2.

Phase 2: Now she is mad. She has new attacks now. She will shoot a dark 
ball of energy at you. Reflect this back at her to avoid damage and 
hurt her. She will also shine a black light at you that explodes on 
contact. Roll to avoid this. Lastly, she will summon a pillar of 
darkness from the ground. Roll away and you shouldn't get hurt. Now, to 
damage her. Use the light of dawn or reflect her dark ball to hit her. 
After she has been hit enough times, she will be stunned. Run up to 
her, jump, and constantly attack. She will emit orbs after this and 
resume the attack. Later in the fight, when you reflect the orb back to 
her, she will also reflect it back, so keep on your toes and prepare to 
reflect a second or even a third time. When she falls to the ground and 
a black cloud surrounds her, go to the glowing circle and shoot a beam 
of light at her. Press the onscreen buttons and she will die.
