God of War III – Walkthrough – Tartarus
Grab health if you need it and activate the nearby pedestal to get a good view of Tartarus. On your way down the curving path, look out for a chest on the right side with a Phoenix Feather inside.
At the bottom of the path a Centaur appears with a large group of enemies. Now that your weapons are upgraded you can handle the Centaur with ease. Try to use attacks that affect all enemies around you but focus the brunt of your combos on the Centaur. Finish it off and then use the remaining enemies to rack up a large combo for Experience Orbs. More Orbs lie within a chest along the left wall.
Kill your third Centaur with a Brutal Kill to get the No Guts No Glory Trophy. Head to the collapsed boulders along the right side and jump up to the ledge above from there. It’s kind of hard to spot where you’re supposed to climb, so look for the treasure chests on the above platform. Climb up to the chests and stock up before moving on.
God of War III – Walkthrough – Gates of Tisiphone
The two Chimera create a formidable obstacle — luckily there are explosive containers littered around the area that can deal significant damage to the beasts. Lead the monsters close to these and detonate them with flaming arrows to deal damage. This should help make the first prompt appear.
Sever the snake head from a Chimera and it will then turn to fire attacks. Keep hitting it and you’ll eventually get another prompt and the animal’s behavior will change once more. This time the Chimera will send a large wave fire at you. Jump over this and get in some hits before it recovers.
Use magic if you need to finish off the nasty creatures. When the room is cleared of enemies you’ll be faced with massive puzzle. Your first order of business is to pull the chains on either side of the wall.
Next, grab the cube with the sparkling point on it and push it into the wall. You can now climb up some of the blocks sticking out of the wall on the left. Get as high as you can and a Harpy will appear.
Your goal is a cube platform sticking out of the wall on the far right. To get here you’ll not only need to use the Harpy, but you’ll need to time your landing so that the cube moving in and out of the wall doesn’t push you off as soon as you land. Wait for the cube to begin to move into the wall before you press L1 + CIRCLE to grab the Harpy.
Direct it out and around the wall to the right, pressing X to dismount onto the cube. Quickly jump up and to the left to the next cube and continue to cross the wall to the left and up. Grab the sparkling point on the far left to push another cube into the wall.
You now need to perform a similar maneuver to the one below — using a Harpy to travel all the way to the cube on the far right. This may take a few tries, but if you fail miserably you can now just climb the repositioned cubes in the center of the structure.
Once you reach the highest cube on the right side, push in the block with the sparkling point on it. You can now search the far left side of this vertical puzzle for two ledges with Red Orb-filled chests. One is above the other, and you’ll need to double-jump and float over to them
On the right side of the massive door puzzle is a ledge with a chest. Inside you’ll find a Gorgon Eye.
Now, jump to the highest platform in the middle of the area and activate the switch there. This will open the massive door and allow you to proceed.
Search the left side of the path just past the massive doorway to score a Phoenix Feather in a partially obscured chest. You can save your game just ahead.
God of War III – Walkthrough – The Pit of Tartarus
Make your way down the switchback path performing ram attacks and Brutal Kills on the enemy soldiers you encounter. Eventually you’ll come to a chasm in the path which you can cross using the Wings of Icarus.
As soon as you touch down on the far side, take a sharp right. You’ll find a well-obscured nook with a chest. Inside is a Minotaur Horn.
Activate the glowing point nestled in the rocks on the far side of the gap.
God of War III – Walkthrough – Boss: Cronos
After the cutscene, Cronos will attempt to squash you between his fingers. Hit the button shown rapidly to overpower the titan and then quickly equip the Head of Helios. Charge a burst of light by holding R2 + Triangle and release it to blind the titan temporarily allowing you to escape.
As you fall you’ll have to hit the buttons shown with precise timing to land safely on the massive hand below. Fend off the enemies and the wrist cuff will shift, allowing you to proceed up the massive arm. As you do the titan will shift and you’ll have to climb while swiping at enemies below you.
Climb until you get to the red welt on the massive arm. Whip this to get Cronos’ attention. Back on your feet again you can start taking out the enemies to the far left. Roll out of the way of Cronos’ breath and it will damage the other enemies around you.
Eventually a colossal hand will clap down in front of you. Whip the exposed middle finger nail to damage it or use Army of Sparta to weaken it significantly. Ignore the other enemies or use Army of Sparta to keep them back and focus damage on the finger nail.
The hand will eventually be retracted and you’ll have to avoid the Titan’s breath again for a bit. The second time the hand comes down you can deal more damage and hopefully get a prompt. Use the prompt to rip the fingernail off and the titan will change its strategy once again.
This time the large hand will slam down, trapping you between its fingers. Look for a light strip of flesh on the finger to the left. You can jump on this and climb it. Eliminate any enemies on the finger and then equip your Head of Helios once more.
Let fly a blinding flash of light and the titan will reel back, sending you flying. Hit the prompts shown to latch back on to the Cronos’ waist. Climb up the soft flesh leaping across any gaps you come to. Grab enemies and toss them into eachotehr to quickly eliminate them.
At the top of the climbable area, head right and make a big double-jump down to the platform. You’ll need to activate the Wings of Icarus to get there. Several of the stone statues will appear here. Stay behind them and use powerful attacks to weaken them and then finish them off with the button prompt once it appears.
Approach the circular clasp and pry it open. See that stripe of blue Onyx? That means you should equip your Nemean Cestus. Attack the blue column vigorously and use magic to thin out the encroaching foes.
Soon Cronos will react and you’ll end up in the palm of his gargantuan hand. Fend off the enemies as best you can until the titan claps his mighty hands. Get ready to mash the buttons shown to throw off the hand and counter attack.
Head to the right while hanging from the hand. Grab the first few enemies you encounter and try to use them as projectiles to knock off the other enemies. At the edge of the hand, jump off and hit R1 to swing from the grapple point. Use the quick grapple prompts to swing to safety.
Ignore the enemies as you land and run to the right. Jump over the obstacle and use the prompt to grapple up and out of the way of the approaching hand.
Fight off the enemies on the Cronos’ shoulder until a skinless Cyclops emerges rather gruesomely from a scar on the shoulder. Keep rolling around the Cyclops using strong attacks on it until a prompt appears. Use magic if you are having trouble toppling it. The button prompt will allow you to assume control of the beast. Use this opportunity to attack the wound on the shoulder.
Once you deal a fair amount of damage, the titan will reel back, forcing you into another series of button presses to save your life — only to end up in the giant’s esophagus! Immediately slide down the wall and jump to the side to avoid the obstructions.
You’ve got to move quickly down the wall of the titan’s throat in order to survive. When you come to the Cyclops hanging on for dear life, whip it and slide on down. When the camera changes perspective to show the reactions of Cronos, watch carefully for the buttons you need to hit to make your gory escape. These include the action to push/click in both ANALOG STICKS at once (R3 + L3)
You’ll end up back on one of Cronos’ hands again, this time with the Omphalos Stone, the raw material Hephaestus needs to craft a new weapon. Follow the pink, fleshy path up and over the massive interlocked digits. From the top, jump and float to the left. You’ll arrive back on the central platform with a column of blue Onyx.
Punch the Onyx with the Nemean Cestus until it bursts. Be ready to hit a button immediately following this. After a few more correct button presses you’ll end up on the face of the massive demigod.
Break the blue column of Onyx in front of you and traverse Cronos’s face to the left. Once you reach his forehead, wait for a final button prompt to finish of the titan for good.
