God of War III – Walkthrough – The City of Olympia
You’ll find Gaia grappling the side of Olympus just up the road. After the cutscene, whip at her wrist until you get a prompt. Use the prompt to cut her off the mountain. Approach the severed hand of the Titan and mash CIRCLE to toss it off the mountain (and receive the Handy Man Trophy!).
The large gate just past the hand won’t grant you access until you destroy the enemies that appear. This battle consists of armed soldiers that cannot be grabbed easily. You’ll need to significantly weaken them before you can use your grabbing ram attack — a useful way to deal damage to the large group. Using the Golden Fleece counters/blocks are essential with these enemies. Their jumping attacks are easy to counter with a tap of L1. Use the Blade of Olympus or Army of Sparta magic if things get too hairy.
Pry open the door and follow the path around until you spot a Harpy. You can use Harpies as mobile grapple points. To do so, you’ll need to bring them near. A simple (uncharged) arrow will get their attention nicely. Shoot the Harpy and then press L1 + SQUARE to grapple onto it. Guide towards the far side and press X to dismount, killing it. You can float to your destination using the Wings of Icarus.
You’ll come to a longer gap after this. Drop into it and gather the Red Orbs from the chest before getting the Harpy’s attention. Grapple onto the first Harpy and guide it towards the next. Press X to jump off the first Harpy and hold L1 to grapple the next automatically. Use the two creatures to get to the far side.
On the far side of the second gap there’s a ledge you can make out (above and to the right) with several chests on it. To get here you’ll have to use a Harpy. Shoot arrows at the nearby Harpy (the second one you used to cross the gap; it should respawn) and coax it towards the ledge you need to reach. Once it’s hovering somewhat near the area, grapple it and direct it up and to the right, positioning yourself as near to the high ledge as possible. Press X to jump off and land on the ledge. You can score both a Minotaur Horn AND a Gorgon Eye up here. There’s also a chest full of Red Orbs. Sweet!
Follow the path around the corner. Grab some health and magic and save, then leap across the gap to the plaza with several soldiers lying in wait. You can weaken them with arrow shots from afar if you wish. As you fight them a large Centaur will appear.
The Centaur will immediately spear you like before, so be ready to swing the LEFT ANALOG STICK as directed to counter the attack. Army of Sparta is extremely useful in this battle. Damaged soldiers can be used to ram the Centaur for damage as well. Take out the creature with the instant kill prompt once you have the opportunity to.
Be sure to stock up on health here since another battle lies just up the ramp to the left. Approach the ballista weapon and activate the prompt to wind it up. You’ll soon be interrupted by a Chimera. This creature has several heads and several methods of attack. At first it will spout venom from its snakehead tail.
Roll out of the way when you see the eyes of the snakehead flash red. If you get sprayed, shake the LEFT ANALOG STICK to recover. After you damage the creature a bit you’ll get a prompt. Follow the buttons shown correctly to remove the snakehead. At this point the creature will start spewing fire. Just stay close and use your attacks and evades.
After another prompt the Chimera’s goat head will assume control and it will begin to charge you. This is relatively easy to avoid, since the creature paws the ground before charging. Another prompt will soon appear allowing you to terminate the abomination.
Approach the large siege weapon and wind it up once again. Hold R1 and watch Helios’ movements on his fiery chariot. As he swings in front of the ballista, let go of R1. A cutscene will show Helios’s fate.
Return to where you fought the Centaur and look across the large gap. Several Harpies are swarming on the far side. You know what to do. Shoot at the nearest Harpy and it will approach your position. Grapple onto it and direct it towards another Harpy. Dismount when you near your next target with X, but don’t let go of L1. In this manner you’ll be able to use the large group of Harpies to cross the gap.
Enemies await on the far side. Use the Golden Fleece to and ram attacks to dispose of them. Enter the door on the right and look for a chest just to the left as you enter the hallway. It contains Red Experience Orbs.
The enemies in this hallway are ideal candidates for a good battering ram attack, so grab a nearby grunt and plow through the soldiers. Repeat this, running up and down the hallway to clear it out.
At the next corner, look to the left to find a chest with more Red Orbs inside. Cross the bridge and climb the ladder on the far side. You actually passed this area on your way down to Hades so it may look familiar!
At the top of the ladder, inch around to the left on the ledge. You can use the prompt to kill the innocent Olympian on your way past the burning windows. Drop to hang by pressing R1 to pass the fire.
Jump over into the destroyed dome. Climb the ledges up to the platform above. Helios lies here seemingly defenseless. Reinforcement soon appears in the form or a an impenetrable shield of soldiers. Luckily, a Cyclops shows up in the nick of time (this would usually count as unlucky event). You can use this Cyclops to clear off the troops around Helios, but first you must best it.
Try to stay around the back of the Cyclops and you’ll avoid many of its pounding attacks. It’s actually rather weak, and you don’t necessarily need to resort to magic, although that makes things easier. Follow the prompts to capture it. You can now control the Cyclops. Use it to scatter the enemies around Helios and attack everything that moves. It’s “light” attack is more useful than its heavy attack, and quite deadly.
When it’s just you and Helios left, approach the fallen god and a cutscene will occur. Helios’s ability to blind you must be countered by using the RIGHT ANALOG STICK to move your hand between your face and the glowing god.
Move it slightly above where you think it should be as you walk towards Helios. When you get to him a series of prompts will allow you to finish him off.
The God of the Sun’s head proves to be a valuable asset. You can use the Head of Helios by holding R2 and pressing TRIANGLE. While the head is out it will cast a beam of light that can expose hidden passages and chests.
Look for a shimmery, sparkly spot of air and shine the Head of Helios on it to expose its secrets. the Head itself will sparkle noticeably when you near a secret. Before exploring the area, however, you should search the ground just to the right of Helios for Helios’ Shield (Godly Possession 3/10).
Now, look along the right side of the area for a shimmery spot in the air. Aim the Head of Helios at it to expose a chest with a Minotaur Horn inside! Now, pass the Head of Helios along the rock face to the left of Helios’ body.
The wall should glow white. “Paint” the wall using the RIGHT STICK and a door should appear out of the whiteness. Enter the door.
In the tunnel you’ll encounter a few soldiers. Charge the Head of Helios to let out a blinding flash of light that will not only stun them but temporarily make them glow to light up the passage. While they are stunned you can grab them for a Brutal Kill!
God of War III – Walkthrough – The Path of Eos
When you emerge into the light again, turn to the left to find a chest with a Gorgon Eye inside. Continue along the ridge and save before entering the dark tunnel ahead. Continue to blind and kill the soldiers you encounter in the inky blackness.
When you come to an open area, use arrows and the Head of Helios to deal with the flying enemies. You can also grapple them with L1 + CIRCLE for an instant kill. There’s an apparent dead end on the far left, but the Head of Helios will reveal a door here if you direct it at the wall.
Make your way through the passage and, instead of immediately hopping on the chain / rope, at the end, run off the ledge under it to drop to a secret area. Here you’ll find a chest with Red Orbs inside and another chest with a Phoenix Feather.
Climb back up to the left and jump up to grab the chain. As you cross the chain, grab enemies with CIRCLE and toss them into the abyss below. Drop down on the other side and climb the platforms up to another dark cave.
Make your way through the cave until you come to a large gap. You’ll need to use the Wings of Icarus to cross this gap, but it would be helpful to have some light so you can see where to land. Charging the Head of Helios provide just this. Charge and release a burst of light to temporarily illuminate your surroundings. Quickly jump and float across the gap to the far side.
When you appear in the light again, approach the bronze statue for a cutscene. Now, look for a Harpy across the way. Fire a shot at it and then grapple onto it. Direct it towards the roof of the ruins in the middle of the chasm. As the Harpy begins to struggle, dismount with X and float to the roof of the ruins.
Head to the far right on top of this strip of ruins and jump towards the wall. Activate the Wings of Icarus and you’ll land in a secret area with two chests full of Red Orbs.
Now, hop back onto the ruins and jump onto the path across the way. Run off the left side immediately. You’ll find a patch of vines you can climb down here. The secret area below contains a chest with Red Orbs inside. Climb back up and you’ll encounter a new enemy, the sickle-wielding Wraiths.
The Wraiths have the unique ability to tunnel under the earth. Your best strategy against these ghouls is to use the L1 + CIRCLE grab to yank them out of the ground, stunning them. You can grab them at any time with this attack, actually, making these difficult enemies much easier. Just keep grabbing them and attacking while they are stunned. They can take a huge amount of damage, but they won’t be dealing any damage to you as long as you continually grapple them.
Several more Wraiths appear before you can move on. Ascend the ramps and collect the goodies from the chests and break the wooden structure for some Red Orbs. Pull out the Head of Helios and you’ll notice it sparkling quite a bit. The wall here is also covered in a sparkling sheen. Shine the Head of Helios on the area behind the wooden structure to reveal a chest with a Gorgon Eye inside.
An ambush occurs on the bridge with the same enemies. Here you can actually use the L1 + CIRCLE grab to toss the Wraiths off the edge of the bridge — but you won’t get any Experience Orbs for doing so!
After the bridge is clear, fire charged arrows at the explosive containers across the way to eliminate the archers. When the blue barriers drop, continue to the right. Near the two supply chests there’s an extremely well-hidden chest. Search the obscured area behind the wooden beams and rocks to the left of the bridge and you’ll see an R1 prompt appear. Hold R1 to open a chest you can’t even see with a Phoenix Feather inside.
Run up the ramp and save. Before hopping into the large geyser of hot air, search the area for chests. While one chest with Red Orbs is right out in the open on the far side of the room, another is hidden behind a false wall. Look for the sparkling gold dust along the back wall and use the Head of Helios to expose a large rectangular area. Behind it is another chest with Red Orbs inside.
Jump into the center of the area and spread the Wings of Icarus.
God of War III – Walkthrough -The Chain of Balance
As you ascend the Chain of Balance you’ll need to dodge scaffolding, falling boulders and other objects. If the reversed Y-axis controls aren’t working for you, you can change the control options in the pause menu. You may need to dash out of the way as you ascend the chain to quickly avoid obstacles, so use the RIGHT ANALOG STICK to do so — remember, it’s reversed as well if that’s the control scheme you chose.
Line up narrow gaps carefully and otherwise remain against the shaft’s walls, moving only to avoid obstacles. You’ll soon come upon a Titan. Get ready to hit the correct button when the prompt appears. After this you’ll land on a platform.
As the platforms crumble away, hop to the left and then onto the wall. On the wall, dash to the left or right using X to avoid the falling rocks. Climb to the left and drop to the platform below. Continue to the left using the grapple point on the ceiling to swing to safety.
Climb the boards in the shaft constantly dodging the boulders. Move straight up until you are forced to the right. Drop onto the platform with the torch and look for some sparkling dust in the air.
Shine the Head of Helios on the spot to reveal a chest with a Phoenix Feather inside. Use the grapple points to the right to access the hot air shaft again.
This shaft will features much smaller openings than the last. Soon you’ll come upon a fully blocked segment. Watch for a piece of this segment to fall out. Avoid the debris and head through the hole. You’ll need to do this a few more times. Sometimes the hole is in the center of the disc and sometimes it’s on the sides.
Near the top the dodge/evade function is the only way to get past the falling boulders. You’ll need to have a quick finger on the RIGHT ANALOG STICK to navigate these. Luckily, this is the end of the line.
God of War III – Walkthrough – The Caverns
As soon as you land on the large cube, search the right side for a cloud of gold dust. Shine the Head of Helios on this area to expose a chest with a Minotaur Horn inside.
Aim a flaming arrow from the Bow of Apollo at the vines on the gears at the edge of the cube and you will begin to move. When the cube comes to a rest, swing on the grapple point and float to the platform hanging in the distance.
From here you can use two more grapple points to find your way to the top of another cube. This one is guarded by enemy soldiers, however. You can take them out quite easily with your grab/charge attacks. This will send the poor suckers flying off the edge of the cube. Things only get hairy when the two Minotaurs show up.
The Minotaurs, unprovoked, will concentrate on severing the chain in the middle of the area, leading to an untimely death for all standing atop the cube. You must prevent this at all costs. Approach the beasts and use Army of Sparta to knock them down, then follow that with an all-out assault. Keep hitting both of them until they are sufficiently distracted and come after you.
Performing a Brutal Kill on these enemies will give you some health, so don’t worry about that — just make sure the chain doesn’t get severed. After all the Minotaurs are eliminated, fire flaming arrows across the way at the distant archers.
As more enemies appear, you’ll eventually be confronted with a Cerberus. This can be used to your advantage. Whittle its life down to the kill prompt and you’ll be able to mount it and turn it against your foes. This is good, because no less than four Minotaurs now appear to hack away at the chain.
Repel the Minotaurs with fireballs from the Cerberus. Try to get a prompt over as many of them as possible before the Cerberus dies. Then you can go around and activate the prompts to finish them off quickly. You may need to use the Blade of Olympus if the Cerberus wasn’t effective, but we were able to get through it without wasting any Blade power.
With the massive object stopped, a new foe will appear on the adjacent cube. After the cutscene, open the chest and use the grapple point to climb onto the chain. Ascend the chain and you’ll pass a familiar scene … from the game’s prologue. Press away from the chain and jump into the room at the top.
