    1. Move through the opening in the cave wall ahead to double-jump across the next gap in front of you and grab the opposite ledge to ascend up towards the left along the cliff-face, then leap down onto the bridge below at the end and proceed forward to return to the outside.
    2. Drop to the ground below to climb the steps in front of you and collect from the chests at the top, then head back down the stairs to pass beneath the previous bridge and follow the road on the other side forward to activate a short sequence.
    3. Use your amulet and combination strikes to defeat the shielded enemies that emerge next, then pass through the gate recedes to descend the incline on the other side and proceed forward at the bottom to approach the end of the aqueduct.
    4. Heal the pile of rubble below with your amulet to repair the aqueduct in front of you and proceed forward across it to enter the tunnel on the other side, then continue around the next corner to encounter a breed of enemy and pick up the nearby sword to start attacking them.
    5. Incapacitate the surrounding enemies with your amulet to eliminate them with combination strikes one-by-one, then approach the edge of the aqueduct to heal the next section in front of you and proceed forward across it to enter The Cistern.
    6. Continue moving forward to open the chests at the end of the aqueduct and turn around to climb down the fallen minotaur statue on the right, then land on the ground below to activate a short sequence and approach the indicated doorway to encounter the next group of enemies.
    7. Use your amulet and circular sweeping attacks to clear the area of all remaining hostile creatures, then pass through the doorway ahead to navigate the corridor on the other side and return to the outside at the end to encounter a large cyclops.
    8. Attack the cyclops at close range until you are forced to roll away from his impending club strike, then stun him with your amulet to move back in for another assault and continue evading his slow-moving swipes or kicks.
    9. Pick up the surrounding insect creatures to throw them at the cyclops from a safe distance and continue your assault until a red grapple point appears above the monster’s head, then use it to deliver the final blow and defeat this enemy for good.
    10. Finish clearing out the insect creatures to drop the surrounding bars and approach the left side of this area to heal the wooden bridge, then make your way across it to drop into the next cave on the right and shimmy along the narrow ledge ahead to pass behind the waterfall.
    11. Continue up the road on the other side of the waterfall to jump across the next gap and activate a short sequence, then proceed forward to drop onto the red platform attached to the enormous wooden wheel and use your amulet to partially rebuild the debris beneath.
    12. Descend to the ground below to pull the indicated crank all the back and use your amulet to drop the wooden debris in front of it, then watch the next short sequence to locate the next destination and climb up onto the green platform attached to the right side of the giant wheel.
    13. Use your amulet to completely the heal the enormous wooden wheel and ride it to the top to reach the next ledge above, then rebuild the aquaduct in front of you to rotate the wheel in the opposite direction and drop back onto the red platform to pass through the opening in the ground below.
    14. Jump off the red platform and splash down in the water below to reach The Grotto.

    Ive having an issue on finding out where to stand to use the amulet it doesn’t want to decay anything it just shoots a beam. what should i do?

    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.
