    1. Follow the trail on your left to reach the ledge at the end and turn right to drop onto snake road below, then proceed forward across it to unlock the latch ahead and activate a cut scene.
    2. Afterwards, use the nearby swing point to reach the ledge above and climb towards the left across it to ascend the small silver rungs at the end.
    3. Transfer to the ladder above on the left to continue climb upwards and head right at the top to descend the spiral ramp, then open the chest at the bottom and return to the previous doorway above.
    4. Ascend the spiral ramp within the tower to move through the open doorway at the top and head left around the outside ledge to fight past the next wave of enemies, then open the chests at the end and climb the nearby ladder to activate a short sequence.
    5. After the monster climbs onto the platform, maintain a safe distance from the creature to roll away from the acid that sprays from its tail and lash out with heavy strikes.
    6. Dodge the creature’s charging attacks to quickly hit the monster with one or two strikes before rolling away to safety, then activate Rage to inflict extensive damage on the enemy and use the grapple point that eventually appears above its head to execute a devastating assault.
    7. Once the monster switches its animal forms, roll in a continuous circle around the creature to avoid its flurry of attacks and lash out with some striking combinations of your own.
    8. Activate rage again to continue inflicting maximum damage on the enemy and use the grapple point that appears above its head next to pull yourself against the monster at close-range, then strike the creature’s body repeatedly.
    9. After the creature changes animal forms again, maintain a safe distance to dodge the monster’s repeated charging or ice blast attacks and continue inflicting damage with multiple combination strikes.
    10. Lash out at the monster until the next grapple point appears above its head, then grab ahold of the creature and press the indicated buttons to win this battle.
    11. Pull the indicated crank backwards to activate a short sequence and jump through the opening in the snake skin that appears nearby, then proceed forward down the tunnel ahead to slide down the incline and navigate between the holes in the various wooden barriers.
    12. Press the indicated buttons to jump across the gaps in the slide and land on the metal walkway at the end, then continue fighting your way forward by executing shield grapples and ascend the right side of the crate stack at the end.
    13. Jump on top of the snake tunnel and proceed towards the left across it to reach the next series of swing points above, then move forward between them to land on the next part of the road below and turn left again to collect from the pair of chests overhead.
    14. Drop back onto the snake road to proceed across it in the opposite direction and enter the next room below to approach the Lightning of Zeus, then dip your weapons into it to gain new abilities and use them to eliminate another wave of surrounding enemies that appear.
    15. Use combinations strikes and shield grapples to finish clearing the area, then pass through the gates that open nearby to climb up the next series of ledges ahead and reach the top of the snake tunnel again.
    16. Jump across the gaps on the left to open the chests and proceed back in the opposite direction along snake road to read the next journal beside you, then drop down onto the purple snake below and head towards the camera.
    17. Continue along snake road to open the next pair of chests at the end and turn back around to return to the previous area, then slide down the icy incline ahead to press the indicated button at the bottom and use the swing point below to grab the opposite wall.
    18. Ascend the wall to transfer onto the wooden structure beside you at the top and continue climbing upward to move right around the inside of the tower above, then jump to the next swing point below to reach another snake tunnel and push the indicated button to crash through the outer wall.
    19. As you slide down through the icy tunnel, navigate around or jump over the gaps in the floor to reach the swing point at the end and use it to reach the top of the snake again.
    20. Fight your way forward to use the next swing point on the left and ascend the snake wall to approach the enormous latch, then tap the indicated button to unlock it and activate a short action sequence.
    21. Attach to the next swing point that passes by on the right and press the indicated buttons to battle the flying demon that approaches, then land on top of the snake tunnel again to activate a cut scene.
    22. Fight your way forward along snake road to slide down the next icy incline and jump across to the metal wall at the bottom, then climb upwards to approach the upper right corner of the landing at the top and transfer to the ledge beside you.
    23. Shimmy to the left across the ledge to ascend the wooden structure at the end and continue climbing forward along the beams to reach the next swing point, then release the chain as you circle past the side of the mountain to launch yourself towards another swing point.
    24. Use the swing points ahead to slide down the opposite wall and open the chests at the bottom, then eliminate any monsters that appear and attach to another swing point located across from you on the right.
    25. Unlock the enormous latch above you to activate an action sequence and enter The Caverns, then smash through the wooden barriers that appear ahead and use launching assaults to fight off the next wave of enemies.
    26. Navigate between the gaps in the stronger sections of the wooden overhangs and continue fending off the surrounding enemies, then smash through another barrier and activate rage to ensure your survival atop the moving snake.
    27. Attach to the next swing point above on the left and hang from your chain until the next one ahead reveals itself, then swing across them to land back on top of the snake and fight off the insect invasion.
    28. Use the next swing point above to land on the ledge to your left and proceed forward across it to clear the gap ahead, then swing off the end of the walkway to land inside the snake and slide down the icy incline.
    29. Jump across the next gap to slide down vertical ice wall and land back on top of the snake passing by below, then eliminate another wave of enemies and use another swing point that appears ahead on the left to climb up the wooden structure above.
    30. Climb upwards to the left across the wooden structure and move quickly to stay ahead of the collapsing structure, then drop back on top of the snake to fight off another wave of enemies and use the next series of swing points above on the right to land on a frozen river.
    31. Slide down the frozen river to jump off at the bottom and land back on top of the snake passing by below to activate a cut scene, then use the next swing point to reach the ledge above and climb to the left across it to ascend the small silver rungs at the end.
    32. Transfer to the ladder on your left to climb up into the tower and proceed towards the left around the spiral ramp, then exit through the open doorway at the top to turn left again and cross the circular ledge to climb the next ladder ahead.
    33. Ascend onto the circular platform above to activate a cut scene, then roll backwards away from the monster’s fire breath and dash sideways to avoid the swooping flame attack.
    34. Wait for the monster to touch down on the platform and roll around it repeatedly to avoid the creature’s tail attacks while lashing out with your own striking combinations, then activate rage to inflict further damage on this enemy and use the grapple point that appears above its head to activate the Manticore Mini-game.
    35. Follow the on-screen prompts to execute a devastating assault against the monster and slice off one of its wings, then continue rolling around the creature and lashing out with combinations strikes.
    36. Use grapple-throws to quickly eliminate the smaller enemies that appear next and return to attacking the monster with combination strikes, then activate rage again to inflict further damage.
    37. Continue attacking the monster until another grapple-point appears above its head, then use it to activate the mini-game again and defeat this creature for good.
    38. Finish clearing the area of all remaining enemies and pull the indicated crank backwards to activate the next cut scene.

    C.B – The Decay and Heal power is to be used for making or breaking objects to be used by Kratos. You can heal a broken bridge or break some object to be used in the game. As it is the use of this power is indicated on the top right. At times you might have to use this power just partially for your use. try it out its fun and believe me later in the game the effects of heal are amazing.

    Sam- yes it is at times confusing how to shoot the amulet but the easiest way to use it that when ever you will press L2 the object that is to be shot at will glow very clearly, so till the time you do not find a object glowing bright and clear you need to move around and find the right place, sometimes it might be too close to the object and sometimes it can be far off.

    Just platinumed it today. It wasn’t too hard but as always there were a couple of fights that were pretty aggravating. The Trial of Archimedes was actually so hard even on the easier settings that it received a patch, though I think they made a mistake by patching it on Titan mode since the really hardcore players perhaps understandably think they’ve been given unwanted help. I though was grateful as it was difficult enough even WITH the patch. On the flip side, it’s a real shame that there was no Challenge of the Gods/Zeus/Hades/whatever this time around, as that would have been the perfect place to put such a difficult task and gamers who just wanted to finish the story wouldn’t have had to do it if they didn’t want to, while hardcore fans would have still leapt at it.
