Walkthrough - A few hints to get you started God of War 2 Guide

Last update: Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Welcome to our unofficial God of War 2 walkthrough. We prepared a full solution to all the game's puzzles, as well as locations of all power-ups (Gorgon Eyes and Phoenix Feathers), secrets (Urns) and experience chests. So, let's kick off with a bunch of simple hints.

Power-ups - A few hints to get you started - God of War 2 - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Power-ups

You'll encounter four types of orbs during your adventures: green (health), blue (mana), yellow (Rage of the Titans) and red (experience). Sometimes you can get some of them from defeated enemies, but the biggest orb deposits are chests. They can be quite well hidden so pay attention to your surroundings. Also, you'll have to collect Gorgon Eyes to enhance your health bar, and Phoenix Feathers to enhance your mana bar.

Weapons

Your main weapons throughout the whole game will be the Blades of Athena. You'll come across other means of destructions, such as a hammer or a spear. Each of the weapons has its pros and cons, but Athena's Blades are virtually unmatched. Be sure to spend most of your red orbs to take them all the way to the maximum level.

Magic - A few hints to get you started - God of War 2 - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Magic

During the game, Kratos will gain access to 4 magic-based techniques: Typhon's Bane (an energy bow), Chronos Rage (electrocution of all surrounding enemies), Head of Euryale (petrifying the enemies) and Atlas Quake (mass-damage earthquake). The most useful of these is definitely the Chronos Rage - mostly near the end of the game, where you face multiple enemies at once. In fact, I can't imagine beating some of the later fights without it! Atlas Quake is a far more powerful spell damage-wise, but costs lots of mana - you can use it, but be reasonable with it. The two remaining attacks are best forgotten. They have their place in certain moments of the game, but using them in mere combat is just not helpful enough.

Combat

Combat system in GoW2 is quite liberal and doesn't force you to remember any long or complicated combos. Kratos faces a lot of different enemies, but most of them are easily dealth with using the basic techniques. It is very important to get used to using throw button (O) - we'll be calling it a "fatality" later in this guide. This move lets you to quickly finish the enemy, as long as his health is low enough. In most cases you can tell that the enemy is ready to be finished by a rotating O-marker above his head. Besides, initiating a fatality usually gives you a few seconds of invincibility (the animation that follows cannot be interrupted by enemy attacks). You'll surely appreciate that fact when you are under heavy attack from multiple enemies. Also, try to remember to dodge (using right analog stick) as much as possible, it can save your day.
