Killing the Kratos Clones
After beating the first part of the fight with Ares, you are sent to another demension. You will be at the temple where Kratos killed his wife and child. Soon several Kratos clones will come out and attack the wife and child so you have to protect them. You can give health back to the family if you get close to them and hit circle. This fight takes a long time so don't get impatient. First the clones are pretty weak, if your blades are at level five, use the Square, hold Square move to clear them. Soon the house will fall apart and you will be on a platform that you can fall off of. The clones will come more and more often, if needed use the Army of Hades to take care of some of them. Don't forget to transfer health to your family if they have half of there life left. Eventually the clones will come out with the Blade of Artemis. Now use Rage of the Gods with the Blade of Artemis. You should also have Athena's Blessing for unlimited magic. With that, you could get two more Army of Hades attacks in. When the rate they come slows down, you are close to the end. The Blade of Artemis con kill them in two-three hits. Don't worry about the clone throwing Zeus's Fury at you, he is on a seperate platform and will die when the clones stop appearing. Even with these tips, you will need a few tries to beat this part, I know that I did. Good Luck.
First Two Muse Keys
The first is found past a breakable wall in the underwater passage after you've opened Poseidon's door. The second is in the challenge of Poseidon. You have to climb ledges- at the top, to the right, is a chest with muse key #2.

Stage 8 in "Challenge of the Gods"
I don't know about you guys, maybe I'm just not as good a gamer as I think. Because I was stuck like there was to be no end on stage 8 of 10 on the Challenge of the Gods listed in your treasures after you beat the game. Okay so I devloped this strategy to conquor all the Gorgons and undead soldiers. Throughout the first seven challenges, conserve your Rage of the Gods, DONT USE IT. When you get to stage 8, use it immediatly. Kill as many as possible. When it runs dry, you're still only about 1/8 of the way through. Attack in all directions with square, and if you see an opening use the might of Hercules on a group of enemies. When the Gorgons try to turn you to stone, this is the patients needed part, roll around with the left analog stick until they're done. Sometimes right as one finishes another begins, it's okay just keep rolling until they're done. If you block an attack just before it hits you, you can then blow a few people off the edge by hitting square soon after the attack lands. Try to never let the Gorgons hit you, they drain your health far to quickly to accept their attacks. Also avoid jumping, if a Gorgon gets you stone in the sky...fall and splat. Finally, you'll know when your near the end because your Rage of the Gods comes back...yes you've killed so many people that your Rage comes back. Activate your god power when you obtain it and that should finally be enough to finish em' off.
3rd Muse Key
Behind the giant Atlas statue (the one with the big globe) is another Muse Key.
Secret Messege Help
To reveal an hilarious secret number use Lace of The Furies in the "Throne Room" at the very end of the game. Hit both statues untill they break and a number will come up. To save your phone bill from all the phone number guessing read the # left to right like a book.
Get Past Dagger Pillars in Hades
First Pillar: For the first pillar (of five), wait for the dagger on the lowest row of daggers to go into the wall before you climb on. Let the rotation of the pillar drag you to to the left wall (this wont hurt you). You are going to want to stay against either left or right wall(depending on rotation of pillar) while climbing. Once you climb on, wait until the dagger right above you goes into the wall. Start climbing up, then quickly jump upwards (up on the left analog stick+X). If you manage to dodge the rows of daggers, you should land right under a row of daggers that come around in sets of two. Above that row it comes in a set of three, then one. Wait till in that row the set of three goes by, then jump up through the next opening in the sets of two. After you land quickly jump up again to avoid getting hit by the set of daggers coming at you. You should be at the next pillar.
Second Pillar: From the first, climb up slowly so that you barely catch the rotation of the next pillar. Let it drag you to the right side. This part is tricky. There are two rows of daggers in a difficult position to advance. But if you wait for a while, there will be a small opening that will allow you to get through. As soon as the last dagger goes in the wall right before the opening, jump up. When you land, carefully (normal climbing) maneuver up through the next few rows. There'll be a point where one dagger is about to hit your feet, from there jump up and you should be at the third pillar.
Third Pillar: Once again slowly climb up just enough so that the third pillar takes you to the left wall. This is pretty tricky. There is a row of daggers right above you that come in sets of one. Above that is a row which comes in sets of three and one. Wait until the set of three in the second row goes by, then the one in the first row goes into the wall. Then jump up. AS SOON AS YOU LAND immediately jump again to avoid the dagger that is just about right next to you. Climb up to reach the fourth pillar.
Fourth Pillar: This one you'll have to be extreamly careful that you dont go up too far on the bottom, because the lowest row of daggers is really close. Just tap on the left analog up a few times just enough so that the rotation takes you to the right wall. Once youve gone over, youll see that the first row of daggers has one set of two, then a long pause before they come back around. Above that, four sets of one dagger. As soon as the set of two daggers in the first row goes into the wall, climb up to where it was, then wait for the next opening in the second row and jump up. Quickly climb out of the way of the dagger coming at you, and you should come to a space where a dagger is about to hit your head, and on the row just under that there is another dagger that follows, now is where you jump quickly. If you hit it right, you should be at the fifth pillar.
The Final Pillar: Make SURE that you don't try and climb on this one to let it drag you, because its impossible....the daggers are just too low. Stay half on the fifth and half on the fourth (youll slill be riding the right wall). Alright there isnt really a definite plan for this one. Just maneuver as best you can, crawling out of the way of daggers about to hit and jumping whenever you get an opening. Watch out though for the second row of daggers from the top of the pillar, because if you jump from halfway, youll probably get hit by those. If you jump right you should land right under that row, where now you jump up when you have an opening, and you should grab on to the ledge of the top of the fifth pillar. Press X as quickly as possible to pull yourself up before the top row of daggers hits you. Id suggest saving at the top(run around to the right)cause I know you dont want to go through that again.
Easy Experience Orbs (The Sexy Way)
After beating the Hydra and sailing to Athens, DO NOT GET OFF THE SHIP! There will be two women in your bed. If you talk to them, they will try to get you to stay, but your character just tells them to leave. Instead of leaving, jump up onto the bed. A circle icon should appear. Press circle, and you will enter a mini-game where Kratos has sex (you don't get to see it so don't get too excited). It is done by pressing the indicated buttons that pop up on the screen. It is three buttons followed by three analog movements (completely random). The first time you will get enough for your first power up on your weapon. After that, you only get five per "round", but if you keep at it long enough you can max out your weapon and a few magics as well (I spent two days doing nothing but that and maxed out the Chaos Blades and Poseidon's Rage). It's time consuming but you don't run the risk of dying, so it's worth it. Also, if you save the orbs, you can easily max out Zeus's Fury when you get it.
