Hint: Gift of Experience:
After getting through Medusa's Temple, you will be where the eyes things are located. Turn around and go to the bog where you met the Barbarian King. Walk a short distance farther and you will see two chests. Open the one to the left to get the Gift of Experience.

Hint: Gift of Health:
When you get to the area where the second Translator jumps off the ledge to avoid reading the book, place the fate statue by the gate at the end of the hall. Go through the mirror that rewinds time, freeze time, then roll back to where the statue was originally. Open the chest that is now there to get the Gift of Health.

Hint: Gift of Magic:
Get almost to the area where you have to burn the Phoenix Feathers (the part where you are climbing on the rope over the lava and enemies shoot the rope down and you must climb on the wall and then ceiling to get to the next place). As soon as you turn the corner where you have to jump over the lava and fly, take out the bow instead and shoot the wall below a few times. It will open, revealing the Gift of Magic.
Chance Mulloy.

Hint: Urn of Gaia:
This urn is found in the Isle of Rhodes (the first level). Take the stone block that you push with the golden bird on top, which you need to first break to get some Red Orbs. Push it between Kratos and the gate. While Kratos is on the button to open the gate, kick the block to the other side and then quickly roll under the gate. Then, push the block to the right. You will see three chests on a ledge in the background. Push the block to that area and double jump, then lift yourself up. This urn allows you to gain ten times the number of orbs than normal.

Hint: Urn of the Gorgons:
After you get the Golden Fleece, backtrack to the conveyor belt with the Gorgon eye things that turn you to stone, then reflect the beam back at them. There will be three chests, one of which holds the urn. This urn enables your weapons to turn enemies to stone.

Hint: Urn of Olympus:
Near the area where you get the Spear of Destiny, take the time slowing statue and push it near the water's edge from where you first came. Try to make it so you can start the time slowing from the other side of the pool. Then, press R1 across the other pool and roll into the room where the urn is located. This urn gives you unlimited magic.
noel derrick and Grim Reaper.

Hint: Urn of Prometheus:
This urn is found in Atlas. When hanging from his underarm, you have to break two stalactites to continue, but there is also another one you can break. Break it and then follow the hole up to find a red chest and the urn. This urn gives you unlimited Rage Of The Titans.
noel derrick and Grim Reaper.

In the underworld area where the Titan, Atlas, is located are multiple climbing areas. Near the climbing area where you get close to reaching his hand, there is a group of breakable stalactites on the ceiling of the climbable parts. One of the first ones you break will have a secret area. Inside is an experience chest and the Urn of Prometheus, which gives you unlimited Titan's Rage in Bonus Play.

Hint: Urn of Fates:

Hint: Urn of Poseidon:
Successfully complete Challenge Of The Titans mode with a "Spartan" or better rank. This Urn allows you to exchange Crono's Rage with Poseidon's Rage.

Hint: Hidden mini-game:
There is a mini game in the first level, when you fight Colossus. When he hits you into the house do not go under the water yet. Get out and run around to the right side. There are two covers. The first has some orbs and the second has two half-naked women in a pool. You do not have to press any buttons beyond what the mini-game instructs you to do to see what the water fountain does; just simply play the mini game.
Stinky Pete Mameet and noel derrick.

Hint: Island of the Sisters of Fate: Trap:
When you arrive on the island of the Sisters of Fate there is a trap system after the hanging skeletons room. To keep the first door from shut-in on the lower level there is a body near the two red chests. Pick up the body and set it on the trigger to keep the door open.

Hint: Temple Of Euryale: Escaping from the circular room:
Pull the lever and open up the wall on the right. Go inside and hit the back wall a few times until it breaks. Leave the body for now and go to the other side. Jump over the spikes and break down the wall as well. Go back to the other side again. Pick up the body and put it in the river. Run across to the other side and stand in the river. The body will float by. Catch it then place it on the switch. Stand on the other switch then roll under the gate to leave.

Hint: Temple Of Euryale: Argo's Revenge for invincibility to attacks:
When in combat with Euryale, in the first and second parts of the fight all of her attacks can be blocked except for one. She does a two fold attack where she will lie on the ground and curl herself up and sweep her tail at Kratos. She will then bring her tail up and slam it down on Kratos. The first sweep can be blocked, but the slam cannot. However, if Kratos can successfully parry the sweep by holding L1 (you will see the slow-motion parry move, and the shriek sound effect of a successful parry), then while holding L1 press Square. Kratos will perform "Argo's Revenge". Kratos will be on fire and will drive his Athena's Blades into the floor, causing a burst of flames to shoot up from it. Performing this move in a crowd sends nearby minions flying in the air, but it does not appear to hurt Euryale because she does not appear to reel in pain. However, performing this move does make you invincible the entire time Kratos is on fire, so when Euryale performs her tail slam, Kratos is unaffected.
John Bouras.

Hint: Protecting the Translator:
This trick is especially useful under the God or Titan difficulty settings. During the part where you must protect the Translator from the three waves of enemies, you can do it a little bit easier. For the first two wave of enemies ( the waves before the part when Kratos drops the Translator and kneels beside the book), you can hide behind the cage and hit the enemies taking minor or no damage. Once you grab him and walk out the cage for the first time, there will be an intermission sequence that releases the first set of enemies. Go back in the cage and pull the boulder off the switch. From there use the hammer's L1 attack in the air, or L1 + Triangle to hit enemies with the hammer's attack wave. Once the first set of enemies is over, walk towards the middle to activate the second set. Take your time. As soon as you see the enemies pop up, run back behind the cage and pull the stone off again. Repeat the same process and you should be able to avoid getting hit.
Mace Casas.

Note: Use the following trick to protect the first Translator. For the first two waves use the gate trick. The second wave of enemies may be able to hit you through the gate, so stay back while using the hammer. Jump and press L1. On the third wave, focus on killing all the enemies but do not worry about the high priests. When the enemies stop appearing, kill the high priest and two more will appear. Use about five or six Cronos Orbs and both of them should die. If you hit an enemy it should come for you and not the Translator.

Hint: Using the Golden Fleece:
After you get the Golden Fleece from the Cursed Cerberus you can use it to block and reflect enemy attacks by pressing L1 at the precise moment. However, if you continually press L1 as fast as possible, you will block and return almost every attack.

Hint: Defeating the Cyclops:
When fighting the Cyclops with the enemy on its back, press Circle. It will give you a command to rotate the Left Analog-stick. Successful completion of this will get the enemy off the Cyclops's back and make it easier to kill the Cyclops.
Scott OMalley.

Hint: Defeating Theasus:
Use the following trick during the second part of the fight with Theasus. When he is on the roof and summons creatures to attack you , lead them around until he summons up ice pillars. Then, roll to avoid them but make sure the beasts get caught underneath when the ice pillars are summoned. By doing this they will get hurt and eventually killed.

Use the following trick during the second part of the battle. when Theasus summons the beasts. Try to attack them while they are being summoned. Whichever beast you pick, try to stay with it, while the other beast moves toward you. Theasus should summon the icebergs. Stay on the same beast. With some luck, the other beast may get hit by one of the icebergs. Alternately, trap the beasts on the side of the building and go with them to summon the icebergs. When they start to summon quickly, roll back. Repeat this to kill the beasts.

Hint: Defeating Zeus:
When fighting with Zeus at the end of the game, to get some health and magic orbs back, just keep using the Golden Fleece and deflect every lighting bolt he sends at you. This makes it a lot easier and you can keep unlimited health if done correctly.
Bruce Allen.

Hint: Defeating multiple enemies:
When fighting against multiple enemies, some can be grappled with Circle. Most enemies will not attack you while you are grappling with another. You can clear an entire area with just Circle.

Hint: Maximum hit points:
After retrieving the Urn Of Prometheus, use your Unlimited Rage Of The Gods and attack enemies until your hit points reach 9999. Once you are at this point, press R1 + R2 to use Titan's Vortex. This can be very helpful when attacking Bosses and during big ambushes. When you hit a time freeze point, deactivate the Rage Of The Gods. If you do not do this, you will lose all hit points.

Hint: Hidden chests:
When you get the Typhon's Bane, after you kill Prometheus go up. You will see a cage on a wooden post. Break it with Typhon's Bane and a platform will come down. Climb on the rope and go up. You will see a missing bridge and on the left a hanging chain. Jump on it and go down. From there, jump into the cave. You will find three chests. Go up the chain. On the right side of the bridge you will see a way to get up on the wall. Follow it and you will find another three chests.

Hint: Easy orbs:
Immediately after you defeat Euryale you will get infinite magic to use with your new skill. To complete this part of the game you must kill five enemies by turning them to stone and shattering them. However, if you face the rear wall and position yourself directly in front of the center spawn, you can cast Crones' Rage, roll right, cast it again, roll back to the left two times, cast it again, and repeat. You can build up massive combos by doing this to get lots of orbs. When you get a 2,000 hit combo, break the combo off (do not cast for about four seconds) and start again. This will net you over 1,500 souls for each 2,000 hit combo.

To get a lot more red orbs with half the work, upgrade your Blade Of Olympus to level 2. This only works after you complete the game. To get more red orbs hold L1 + Circle and the shield the blade emits will suck in red orbs from live enemies. When sucked dry, kill them to get more.

In the first level, after the first time you get thrown by the Colossus you will land in a pool area. Instead of swimming down, explore the area and look for a wall. Knock down the wall and you will see some women there. Approach them and complete the mini-game indicated. This will give you one to two thousand orbs and can be repeated as many times as desired.
Dave Willey.

In bonus play on any mode, if you found the Urn Of Gaia, give the Sword Of Olympus the Divine Sacrifice to suck out all the red orbs. With the urn's help it will give you 10X the amount. If you get all the red chests you will get 99,999 red orbs.

Hint: Easy Cyclops Eyes:
After unlocking the Arena Of The Fates, just fight the Cyclops Berserker and take their eyes every time. This is an easy way to get the twenty eyes required unlock the bonus costume.
Tarot P. Turcato.

When the Bowmen (little penguin-like creatures with axes) call the Cyclops with their horns, just kill the Cyclops and not the Bowmen. After you rip out the Cyclops' eye, the Bowmen will call more Cyclops. You can rip more eyes out. Keep this going until you get all twenty eyes.
Brandon Knizek.

As soon as you unlock the Arena Of The Fates make three Cyclops and have them respawn and not attack. You can get twenty eyes quickly.
chance mulloy.

Hint: Extra god:
After defeating Zeus and go to the time of the Great War Of The Titans, when Zeus is talking to his brother the gods of Olympus are there. You can see Helios (god of the sun), Hades (god of the underworld), Zeus (king of gods), Poseidon (god of the sea) and an extra god that resembles Caesar.

Glitch: People still fighting:
After Kratos manages to escape from Hades, look over the edge of the building. You will see people still fighting and firing their catapults, even after Zeus killed everyone.
