  19. When he retreats above the door, run toward his claw and watch out for the fireballs. Jump when they almost hit the ground and press O when you can. All you have to do is
    spin the analog stick around circles, so that you are pulling him toward you.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta

Atlantis

  2. Use your arsenal of combos to destroy this first wave, then do the same with the next. Hold L to block attacks and Hold down triangle to launch enemies into the air. These guys know how to use their tridents, so make sure to keep moving to avoid their strikes. While holding L1 and R1, move your toggle switch to perform a roll.
  3. Once they are destroyed, kick through the door to head under the ship. Destroy this next wave of enemies before opening the green chest on the right to regain some extra health.
  4. Before heading out the door, open the chest to the left to gain extra power ups for weapons and magic. Head up the stairs and kick open the door.
  5. These little spiders can be annoying, but watch out for the huge tentacle of this giant squid as you fend them off. Take a few shots at the tentacle to cause it to crawl back into the sea.
  6. Perform several lengthy attacks against the wall of tentacles to create a pathway to cross. Unfortunately, you’ll have to fend off more of those spiders as you do so. The best (and most entertaining) way to destroy them is to grab them and allow Kratos to team them in half.
  7. Jump and perform a few arial combos against the other tentacle at this end of the boat. Once the monster is down, press the O button to initiate the mini game.
  8. Scylla looks friendly! His mode of attack is simple: tentacle swipes and claw smashes. You’ll know when these about to come because he rear his head back before he unleashes them.
  9. When he is about to perform an attack, stay up close and in the center of his body and hold L to absorb most of the blow. As soon as he finishes his attack, he’ll stick out his ugly head and when he does, get off as many arial combos as possible.
  10. Once you cause Scylla to retreat into the sea, he’ll pop up in a different area and greet you with more of those annoying spiders. As you fight them off, he’ll attempt to take a bite out of you, so watch out!
  11. When Scylla returns back to his original position, continue to get off arial combos in between his attacks. Once he falls, perform a double jump to get up to the crane wheel. Rapidly press the O button to activate it.

Jump and press O to latch onto the light located in the upper right corner of the screen. Make a huge leap out to the left and latch onto the wall.
  7. Wall leap over the gap and move around to the left. Wall leap across the waterfall of lava and then begin your long wall climb assent up the two narrow walls. Be on the lookout because you’ll have to wall leap back and forth between the two sides to avoid getting hit by falling craters.

Aroania Pass

  1. Don’t be distracted by Erinys’…uh…attire. She moves quick and her dashes will do some damage, so make sure you have your finger on L and be ready to block. She will also call on her feathery friends to pester you, but just grab them to rip them apart.
  2. Despite her size, Erinys can withstand a lot of damage. Ergo, this fight will be tedious. Unleash combos and use all of your magic to defeat her. Once you see the O above her head, tap it to rip off her wings.
  3. After she flies away, keep your eye on the screen and press the appropriate button when she flies by to lock onto her wings. After you bring her down, she will fly away again, but this time when she comes back she will destroy the platform that you are standing on.
  4. Continue to closely watch the screen and press the appropriate buttons when prompted to as you slide down the broken pieces of the bridge. Once you get into free fall mode, continue to press X to catch up to Erinys. This part may take a while, so be patient.

  7. After all that work, you’ll have to engage in more fighting in the center area. But now you get to test out your new toy, which is a lethal killing machine. After you take out all of the enemies, head down the path, open the two chests and save your game before heading up to Sparta.

Sparta

  1. As you walk through the streets of Sparta, enjoy the sights, meet some people (…check out the brothel) and open chests along the way. Once you see the two boys play-fighting, Kratos will have a memory of him and his brother as kids and you will have to defeat Deimos to learn of your past.
  2. Following your memory, turn around and head through the raised gate. Save your game and climb down the ladder.

Jails of Sparta

  4. After you destroy all of the enemies in this area, allow the gate to open in front of you, then proceed through. Open the chests, then head down the path where you will have to face the Piraeus Lion.
  5. This guy is a beast. Between his migraine-inducing roars and his huge paw swipes, he is a bit of tricky boss. The Scourge of Erinys should come in handy, but if you run out of magic, he shouldn’t be too hard to take town with a few lethal combos.
  6. With the lion dead, go hunt down that punk that locked you in there. After you kill him, pick up his body and head down the tunnel. Drop his body on the square indentation, open the two chests and climb up the ladder.

Mounts of Laconia

  1. Open the two chests and kill the hounds that will be waiting for you around the path. Hop up the ledge and save your game. Latch on to the nearby swing point and swing across the chasm to the other side.

  5. Take care of these guys and open the nearby chest to get a Minotaur Horn. Head in through the cave. Pull the lever on the platform to raise it up. Head around the path to the left. Open the chests and defeat the enemies across the bridge. Use the Scourge of Erinys to take out the two enemies with arrows down below.

  8. Continue down the tunnel. Hug the right wall and carefully walk across the ledge. Open the two chests before heading out onto the bridge. Kill the enemies across the gap before making the jump to get across.
  9. Press O to swing on to the swing point, then double jump to get across. Before you get too far down the tunnel, switch to your shield to protect you from “incoming hazards.”

  2. Destroy all of the enemies in this next area. Use the Scourge of Erinys to take out the two annoying bow-and-arrow- shooters up on the platform, then worry about the guys on ground level.

  5. The enemies in this area have shields, so they might take a little longer to defeat. After you take care of them, open the chest in the back. Head through the pathway on the right. After you hop over the lava, open the chest.
  6. Continue down the path. If you really want to open the chest next to the statue, you’ll have to break the statue, then defeat the enemy. Jump down off the ledge and kill the enemies in this area. Open the two chests, then jump across the platform to reach the chest with the Minotaur Horn.
  7. Jump back across. Head up the slope and zip-line down the rope. Turn right to find a chest full of red orbs. Climb up the rope on the other side. Skip the first opening and continue climbing.

  9. After you sock him in the face, pick up his body and head back through the tunnel. Destroy the hounds that come out, then give Midas another knuckle sandwich and pick up his body again. You’ll have to repeat this process several times before Kratos finally kills Midas.

  14. Lift up the door and save the game. Before you head down the path, walk towards the screen and open the two chests on the right. When you reach the tower, take a few whacks against the chain. You’ll then be greeted by bats and cyclopses––destroy them.
  15. Open the chest at the other end of the area. Step inside the tower and destroy the other chain in front of Kratos to drop the platform. Run down the pathway all the way towards the screen to find a Minotaur Horn.
  16. Kill the enemies across the bridge, open the chests and spin the wheel to walk aboard the boat.
  17. Are your button smashing skills are up to par? You’ll have to fight off what seems like every enemy in the game as you all into the abyss. You’ll also have to deal with bolts of lightning, so keep moving to avoid getting struck.

Sunken Atlantis

  1. Save your game and open the two chests. Fall into the water and swim down the path. After you get pushed aside by the current, swim straight up and make a right down the pathway.

  6. Head down the tunnel and jump into the water. Swim down and head through the pathway. Break through the gate to open the chest of red orbs, then swim up. Pull on the lever to the right, then the one on the left and swim through the opening. Dash through and tap O when prompted to in order to grab onto a plank.
  7. Press R to push off to the left. Break through the gate and rise up to the surface. Head down the path. Swing from the swing point and make sure to not accidentally land in the water.
  8. Turn the lever 360 degrees to cause the platform to raise. Naturally, you will have to fight off enemies along the way. Use the shield and spear for enemies in the distance throwing objects, then quickly switch back to your blades to fight enemies that join you on the platforms.
  9. Once the platform reaches the top, defeat the rest of the enemies, then cross the bridge. Open the two chests and head up the first set of stairs. Turn right when you reach the circular room and head down the steps. Follow this pathway all the way down to talk to Athena.

  10. Jump over to the platform on the right and head down the pathway. Once outside, you will have to defeat a group of enemies in order to cross the bridge. Your shield and spear will work best here.

  15. Turn left and kill the two enemies up the stairs. When you reach the edge, jump off into the center area where you will again have to kill all of the attacking enemies. After the gates drop, walk upstairs and hold O at the device to cause the huge statues to raise a series of bridges.
  16. Cross the bridges and save your game before running to the end and climbing up the wall. Run to the edge of the platform, press O, cross the bridge and enter inside The Domain of Death.

  2. Go back, grab the block and push it to the right. After the turn, go open the chest of red orbs and then place the block under the chain. Double jump to grab onto it.

  8. Head through the pathway and open the chest at the end before opening the door. Open the chest on the other side before using you spear to knock down the lantern to the left. Walk to the edge and perform a series of swing and jump combos to get up to the next level.
  9. Open the two chests at the end of the path, then jump up to reach the next area where you will have to kill a ton of enemies. After you have done so, turn left and head across the bridge.

  12. Turn the lever so that the bridge turns 90 degrees. The mouth on the door will burn three times and on the third time the fire will come shooting out again. As soon as it does, grab your shield again to block it. Repeat the step of throwing your spear at the gears to cause the door to close, then turn the lever another 90 degrees to make the bridge meet up with the door.
  13. Block the flames again, then run on through the doorway and jump over the furnace. Open the chest of red orbs, then head up the stairs. Open the two chests and save your game before heading up the stairs.
  14. After you open the door to find your brother hanging from some chains, walk up to tree on the left and take a few whacks to break one of the chains. Switch to your spear and throw it at the other chain to free him.
  15. Deimos will be a little pissed off and you are going to have to battle him. He’s a cagey fighter, but he lacks your combos and your magic. He will take a lot of damage, but after quite a bit of fighting he will charge you and push you over the balcony.
  16. After he gets taken away, get to your feet and walk toward the edge of the cliff to follow after him.

Suicide Bluffs

  1. Once you grab onto the wall, make your way up, destroying the rocks along the way. Jump across the gap and transfer under to the ceiling. Continue to make your way over until you reach the cliff, then walk up to Deimos and pull him up.
  2. Follow Deimos up the stairs where you will open the two chests and save your game. Continue over to the right for the final fight against Thanatos.
  3. Thanatos is quick, but you will have your brother to help you in this battle. As usual, your magic is the best way to inflict damage and get off crazy combos. But don’t waste all your magic here––you will need it later.
  4. The first part is relatively easy, but Thanatos in his huge, beast form is a little trickier. He will be relentless with his fireball blasts from his mouth, so keep your finger on L to block them.
  5. The only time you will be able to get a few hits in is when he is distracted by Deimos or when he is temporarily wounded and drops his head to the ground. Continue to work on his exposed left hand and use whatever magic you may have left.
  6. Thanatos will revert back again to his…human form? Continue to battle him until he switches back to his beast form. When he does, once you get him to fall on his arm, get off as many combos as possible and press the O button when it appears. Keep your eyes on the screen and press the right buttons when prompted to.
  7. Unfortunately, you will have to go solo the rest of the way. Go all out and get off as many hits as possible once he drops his head. When he reverts back yet again, approach him and tap O to engage in the last minigame to finally kill Thanatos.
  8. Will Thanatos dead, go pick up your brother and carry his body up the stairs and burry his body to complete the game.
