Gameplay

The gameplay of God of War II is very similar to that of its predecessor. The player controls Kratos in a combination of combat, platforming, and puzzle game elements. Kratos' main weapons are Athena's Blades, which are blades on the ends of long chains that Kratos is able to swing in destructive paths but also able to use to scale rock faces or swing from special hook points. Kratos received Athena's Blades at the end of the original game. Other weapons and magic abilities are acquired as the plot progresses and can be used in conjunction with the Blades to dispatch enemies. Defeating foes using a combination of attacks, including chaining attacks together in combos, will release red experience orbs, used to power up Kratos' weapons and magic, and green, blue, and yellow orbs to replenish health, magic power, and the Rage of the Titans power, respectively. Chests distributed throughout the levels can also release these orbs, as well as providing Kratos with special artifacts to increase his maximum health and magic levels. For other uses, see Athena (disambiguation). ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


As with many foes in the first game, once Kratos has weakened an enemy, an indicator will appear above it. The player can then initiate a Mortal-Kombat-style fatality minigame, which may require the player to hit a button, turn the analog stick, button-mash, or some combination thereof when prompted on-screen. A successful attempt will release additional orbs or life as a reward, while failure may result in damage to Kratos. Bosses can only be finished via these minigames, allowing the programmers to guarantee them graphic and cinematic demises.

New features in God of War II include additional relics introduced in the game. These allow Kratos to reflect magic spells back to their target, to slow down time when near special statues, and to open locked doors. Additionally, Kratos takes flight on the back of Pegasus with the combat similar in nature to rail games such as Panzer Dragoon Orta. A new "Challenge of the Titans" mode allows the player to attempt 7 different challenges with increasing difficulty after they have completed the main game once. There is also an "Arena of the Fates", in which the number and types of opponents can be customized. The experience points gained therein carry over to the main game. An overall rank of Titan must be achieved in the Challenge of the Titans in order to unlock the Arena of the Fates. Finally, a series of Grecian urns hidden throughout the game allow the unlocking of additional abilities when starting a New Game Plus, known in this game as a "Bonus Play."

Story

God of War II takes place some time after the events of the first game; Kratos, after his defeat of Ares, has become the new God of War, but has not been accepted by the other members of the Greek pantheon due to his ruthless treatment of the other Greek city-states. Kratos is still haunted by memories of the deeds from his horrible past while working under Ares. He finds enjoyment the only way he can, by leading his Spartan army in conquering Greece. Athena pleads that Kratos stops, telling him that she cannot protect him much longer, and thus reminding him that it was she who made him a god. Kratos bellows that he owes nothing to her and descends to Rhodes to assist his Spartan army. Kratos may refer to: Cratos, a son of Zeus in Greek myth Operation Kratos, a codeword for SO13 tactics for dealing with terrorists Kratos MS 50, a tool for Electron ionization Kratos, the main protagonist in the video game series, God of War Kratos Aurion, a character from the Tales...

As Kratos arrives to destroy the city, an eagle (which Kratos believes to be Athena in disguise) robs him of almost all of his godly power, infusing them into the Colossus of Rhodes and bringing it to life to kill Kratos. After a protracted conflict with the metal giant that rages across the city, Zeus offers Kratos the Blade of Olympus, which Zeus himself used to overthrow Cronos and the Titans. At Zeus' behest, Kratos infuses the blade with his godhood, rendering him mortal but enabling him to to destroy the Colossus from the inside. As Kratos jumps from the falling Colossus, he shouts to the gods if he needs to prove anything more. However, Kratos is crushed and severely wounded by the Colossus' falling hand after the battle. Kratos realizes he must retrieve the Blade of Olympus to save himself. As he slowly gets up and limps his way to the sword, Zeus reveals himself as the eagle that stole his power. Zeus explains he betrayed Kratos to save himself and Olympus from the same fate as Ares. He then offers Kratos one final chance at being a god, provided that he forever serves Zeus. Kratos says he serves no one, and Zeus, claiming Kratos has left him no other choice, slays him. Zeus tells Kratos that the path was his own choosing, and Kratos still defies Zeus, snarling that 'a choice from the gods is as useless as the gods themselves', making Zeus angrier and driving the blade farther into his chest. Zeus whispers that everything Kratos has ever known will suffer for his sacrelige- Kratos will never be the ruler of Olympus and 'the cycle ends here'. He then pulls the sword out of Kratos and using the power it possesses to destroy the fighting warriors of Sparta and Rhodes. Kratos' final words to Zeus are that he will pay for what he did. Kratos then falls over dead. Genera Several, see below. ... “The Colossus of Rhodes” redirects here. ... For other uses, see Zeus (disambiguation). ... Rhea tricking Cronus with a wrapped stone. ...

However, as Kratos is being dragged towards an eternity of torment in Hades, he is saved by Gaia, the mother of the Titans and the franchise's narrator, who offers an alliance. When the Titans were defeated by the Olympians, they were punished and humiliated, and they want Kratos' help to exact revenge. Kratos escapes the Underworld and is bidden by Gaia to find the Sisters of Fate in order to change his past. She gives Kratos the aid of Pegasus to traverse the distance to the Fates. Kratos and Pegasus, after a detour to a mountain that houses the Titan Typhon and former God Prometheus, fly to the Island of Creation where the Sisters of Fate are. As he explores the island, Kratos encounters the likes of Theseus whom he kills in battle to determine who is the greatest warrior of Greece, Perseus, who is there to change the fate of his beloved Andromeda, (Kratos kills him too), and the Barbarian King from the original God of War whom almost killed Kratos but was slain after Kratos offered his service to Ares. They battle one last time, but Kratos wins and sends him back to the underworld from whence he escaped. Kratos also encounters an elderly and crazed Icarus who tackles Kratos of a cliff. While both are falling Kratos rips off Icarus' wings and sails below the Earth where it is being held up by Atlas: Icarus falls to his death far below. At first Atlas refuses to help Kratos, saying that he put him there to begin with, but Kratos then persuades Atlas to help him so that he may change his fate and kill Zeus. (The event in which Kratos enchains Atlas is explored in Chains of Olympus.) Atlas agrees and helps Kratos back to the surface so that he may continue his quest.

Kratos finally confronts the Sisters, Lakhesis, Atropos and Clotho, who operate and defend the Loom of Fate, which rules the lives of mortals and gods alike. Kratos first encounters Lakhesis. She reveals that it was her who decided the Titans lose the Great War and allowed Kratos to come this far. They fight and Kratos defeats her, but she then summons Atropos who takes Kratos back to the time of his final fight with Ares in the first God of War. As Kratos and Ares disappear (this would be the part that Ares traps Kratos in the illusion) Atropos attempts to destroy the sword that Kratos used to kill Ares, so that Ares can kill Kratos, causing him to die in both the past and the present. He stops her and goes back to the present to face Lahkesis one more time. As he fights Lahkesis, Atropos intervenes from the three mirrors in the room, meaning Kratos must fight both at the same time. Kratos destroys Atropos' first two mirrors, then traps Lahkesis and Atropos in the last mirror and destroys it, trapping the two Sisters in the past for eternity, and opening the path to Clotho. When reaching Clotho, Kratos impales her in the head with a swinging blade, leaving him to control the loom. In Greek mythology, Lachesis was the second of the Three Fates, or Moirae. ...

He first goes back to his death at Zeus' hands in Rhodes, reclaiming the Blade of Olympus and inciting a lengthy battle with the King of the Gods. At the end of the fight, Zeus is striking Kratos with a series of lightning storms, leaving Kratos to bluff Zeus that he surrenders. Kratos asks him to release him from his life, and as Zeus is about to execute Kratos, Kratos tricks him, blocking the blow and pinning Zeus to the rock with his blades. Kratos then takes the Blade of Olympus and begins driving them into Zeus' abdomen. Athena arrives and defends Zeus. Kratos angrily battles her, snarling at her for having the gall to stand against him. Athena replies she doesn't wish to fight, but she will defend Olympus. The badly wounded Zeus attempts to escape, telling Kratos he has started a war he cannot hope to win, as the Fates have already deemed Zeus victorious. As Kratos tries to charge forward and slay Zeus as he flees, Athena interposes herself, saving her father at the cost of her life, while Zeus flees. Her dying words reveal that Zeus' actions are meant to break the cycle of son killing father, which goes back to Cronos killing Uranus, and Zeus defeating Cronos. By killing Kratos (the son) before he can kill Zeus (the father) Zeus had hoped to break the cycle- thus confirming that Kratos is Zeus's son. Athena dies in Kratos's arms, saying that all the Gods on Olympus will deny Kratos, defending Zeus so Olympus will prevail. Kratos then vows to exact retribution on Zeus and any God who will deny him his vengeance. Kratos steps out of the shadow of the Gods, screaming that their time is at an end, swearing that 'If all on Olympus will deny me my vengeance, all on Olympus will die!' For other uses, see Uranus (disambiguation). ...


Returning to the Loom, which is now collapsing, Kratos uses it once again to go further back in time, into the original war between the Gods and Titans, and convinces the Titans to come to the present day, where Zeus is weakened, Ares and Athena are dead, and Olympus is in a state of confusion. Zeus is marshalling his forces to defend Olympus against Kratos when the Titans, brought forward in time by Kratos, begin to scale the mountain and bearing Kratos with them to end the Great War between the Gods and the Titans once and for all. As Zeus looks down in horror, Kratos shouts up to him, "Zeus! Your son has returned! I bring the destruction of Olympus!"


The game finishes with a prophetic warning: The End Begins.... Prophecy, in a broad sense, is the prediction of future events. ...


Characters

Main characters

  • Kratos: At the start of God of War II, Kratos is the God of War after defeating Ares but not being released from his torment made his sorrow boil into hatred. He turns to his mortal army of Sparta to wage war on cities across the land, which raises the anger of Zeus and the other gods. Soon, he finds he is betrayed by Zeus and reduced to a mortal. Kratos must travel to the Sisters of Fate to exact revenge and destroy Zeus once and for all.
  • Athena: The goddess of wisdom, defensive war and industry. Though a constant companion in the first game, Athena appears only three times in this sequel: once to warn Kratos that his actions are displeasing the other gods, a second through a statue (as in the first game), and the last to save Zeus by stepping in the way of Kratos' killing blow. (Ironically, when Athena's mother, the Titaness Metis, was pregnant, Zeus attempted to kill both for fear that the child be the prophesied overthrowing son.)
  • Gaia: One of the Titans, and connected to all things of the Earth. Along with the other Titans, she was banished in the War of the Titans, and seeing Kratos' quest for revenge on Zeus, offers to lend her power to his cause. She helps Kratos throughout his journey in hopes that together they can bring about the fall of Olympus. She also acts as the narrator.
  • Lakhesis: The middle (matron) of the three Sister of Fate bears a feathered robe and wings along with a staff. She mocks Kratos by telling him that she was the one responsible for deciding both the defeat of the Titans in the Great War and letting Kratos reach the Sisters. She refuses to accept Kratos and tells him that he will fail in his quest to change his fate.
  • Atropos: The oldest (crone) Sister of Fate who was inside Lakhesis until she split off to fight Kratos. She mocked Kratos' attempt to change his fate, demonstrating her power by altering the event from the first God of War and attempting to destroy the Blade of the Gods so that Kratos would die by Ares' hand. Kratos is forced to fight in his own past (with the final battle of the first game raging in the background) in order to defeat her and preserve his existence.
  • Clotho: The youngest (maiden) Sisters of Fate that Kratos encounters, although she looks like anything but. She is a morbidly obese silkworm-like creature with multiple arms and breasts that sits within the multi-leveled Loom Chamber. She spins the thread of every mortal, god and titan. Kratos must defeat Clotho and learn how to work the loom in order to kill Zeus and change his fate.

Common enemies

Most of the common enemies that Kratos faces are based on mythological creatures including several that return from the original God of War; these include the undead, skeletons, wraiths, harpies, nymphs, gryphons, minotaurs, Gorgons, Cyclopes, Cerberus hounds, Sirens, satyrs, juggernauts, and the armies of the Fates. Many of these common foes can be dealt a more violent finishing blow to earn more experience orbs and other benefits, though can also be finished off by repeated attacks.

Bosses

  • Colossus of Rhodes - The first boss in the game. It is brought to life by Zeus (in the form of a bird) who drains Kratos' power and gives it to the statue. As Kratos fights his way through the city, the Colossus attempts to destroy him. Kratos eventually fights the Colossus from within. When completely drained of its power by Kratos' use of the Blade of Olympus it begins to collapse. Kratos escapes through the mouth onto a platform. He is then crushed and nearly killed by the hand of the falling colossus.
  • Theseus - A famous Greek hero, he wields a twin-bladed spear and can summon ice crystals and Frost Minotaurs. He serves the Sisters of Fate as the 'Horse master' and keeps the key to the chapels on the backs of the Steeds of Time. Kratos offers Theseus' life in exchange for the key he possesses for the door; however Theseus challenges Kratos to a duel to the death to prove who is the greatest warrior in Greece. After an extended battle, Kratos uses Theseus' own spear against him by impaling him to the door, using the key to open the door, then repeatedly smashing the door on his head until he dies.
  • Barbarian King - One of the characters from the original game to return, the Barbarian King was seen repeatedly through the cutscenes in that game as Kratos' adversary who nearly defeated him, forcing Kratos to make a pact with Ares. Kratos is seen decapitating the King in the first game, but in this game he is a corpse riding a decrepit horse and he tells Kratos he is thankful that the Fates granted him this last duel with Kratos for revenge. After Kratos knocks the King off his horse, he uses his own hammer against him, slamming it repeatedly onto his head, before delivering a crushing blow. In another throwback to the original game, the ship captain whom Kratos let perish inside the Hydra is one of the souls the Barbarian King summons. If you kill him, it marks the third time in the series you let him die.
  • Cerberus - A black, three-headed hound who is faster, stronger and can breathe fire, Kratos discovers it has eaten Jason (of the Argonauts) and the Golden Fleece along with him. Kratos must retrieve the Golden Fleece from within the beast. He first stabbes two of the heads then sticks his hand inside the last ones mouth ripping the fleece from inside of him killing him.
  • Euryale - Medusa's sister, a much larger, heavier gorgon. She wishes to avenge the death of her sister, who was slain by Kratos in the original God of War, and she praises the Sisters of Fate for luring Kratos to her temple. Her petrification energy is red, as opposed to other gorgons' energy being green. Kratos struggles with her at first but finally slices her head off. When defeated, her head can be used to turn enemies to stone. This is similar to "Medusa's Gaze" from the first game.
  • Perseus - The Greek hero appears to be on his own quest to seek the Sisters of Fate, to bring his love (presumably Andromeda) back from the dead. Perseus uses the Helmet of Hades that makes him invisible, a sling, a sword, and a reflective shield, all of which he received from various gods. He attempts to kill Kratos believing that the confrontation is a test to prove his worth for an audience with the Sisters (or at least he can bask in the glory of slaying Kratos). Kratos must first destroy his helmet to remove his invisibility then break his sword into pieces, at which point Perseus is down only to his sling and the blinding magic of his shield. After weakening Perseus, Kratos smashes his head into a wall, drowns him into unconsciousness then takes Perseus's shield and throws him through a wall into a hook, killing him instantly.
  • Icarus - Kratos runs into an elderly Icarus upon reaching the Great Chasm. He appears to have lost his sanity, reacting violently to Kratos' arrival. This causes a tussle that takes them both over the edge. Kratos manages to tear off his wings, causing the old man to fall to his death.
  • The last Spartan - Silhouetted against the sky from behind a framed glass window, Kratos fights this opponent as a shadow. Neither man knows the truth as to who they are fighting until Kratos wins by tackling him through a window, discovering to his horror that it was the Spartan he had told to defend the city at the start of the game. He tells Kratos that Zeus had destroyed Sparta and he had hoped to gain an audience with the Sisters of Fate to change the outcome. The Spartan dies having faith in Kratos' ability to save the Spartans. Kratos uses his body to place on a pressure plate several times before the Kraken devours his body.
  • Kraken - Appears after the battle with the Spartan. At this point Kratos has been through so much that he gives up fighting and will not lift his blades. He now believes he cannot change his fate and wishes Zeus to face him at that very moment. This allows the Kraken to firmly grab hold of Kratos who is still enraged. Kratos regains his fighting spirit after being convinced by Gaia (in the form of Kratos' wife) that he will be eternally tormented by Zeus unless he changes his fate. After a few rounds of battling the monster, Kratos stabs its tentacles, knocking it off balance, allowing Kratos to use a lever to extend a bridge, sending the bridge straight through the Kraken's mouth.
  • The Sisters of Fate - In order to use the Loom to change his past, Kratos must battle the Three Sisters of Fate that are defending it, frightened that Kratos will bring doom to the world should he use it. Lakhesis confronts Kratos alone trying to kill him using a combination of melee attacks and magic with the use of her staff. When bested by Kratos, Lakhesis releases Atropos from within her. Atropos carries Kratos through the mirror back to the time when Kratos fought Ares. She threatens that she could kill Kratos in the past by destroying the sword he used to kill Ares. Kratos defeats Atropos, bringing him back to Lakhesis' throne room. Both Lakhesis and Atropos fight against Kratos. He defeats them by throwing them into one of their inter-dimensional mirrors, and then destroying it, trapping them in a void between realms. The final sister, Clotho, awaits Kratos a few levels away. While Kratos makes his way to her head he disables five of her smaller arms blocking his way up. Once at the top level, he disables her two main arms, giving him time to bring up a giant swinging blade. With this blade he impales Clotho through her head killing the last of the Sisters of Fate, granting him the power to change the past.
  • Zeus - After using the Loom to return to when Zeus drives the Blade of Olympus into Kratos, Kratos must fight Zeus for control of the blade in order to change his future. Toward the end of the battle Kratos uses both Athena's Blades and the Blade of Olympus to bring him down. After an electrical storm attack from Zeus, Kratos tricks Zeus by telling that he gives up and to end his life. Kratos, with the use of the Golden Fleece, reverses Zeus' attack and uses the Blade of Olympus to nearly kill him until Athena interrupts. Kratos, while trying to run Zeus through, accidentally impales Athena who threw herself in the path of the killing blow and mortally wounds her while Zeus escapes with no concern for his fallen daughter.

Items and abilities

Weapons

Kratos' main weapon is Athena's Blades, bestowed on him by the goddess Athena. They function as the same weapon as the Blades of Chaos, but these were given to Kratos as he ascends to Godhood by Athena, and after Ares had taken the Blades of Chaos from Kratos during the final battle. During the game, Kratos also gains the Barbarian Hammer (a slow but powerful close combat weapon originally wielded by the Barbarian King), the Spear of Destiny (a fast weapon with piercing attacks originally used by the Dark Rider), and the Blade of Olympus (a divine sword so powerful it was the blade that allowed Zeus to defeat the Titans.) Each weapon can be powered up with experience orbs to increase their power and add new attacks. However, the Blade of Olympus, normally a weapon provided solely by plot developments, can only be used via Bonus Play, during the fight with the Colossus, and when fighting Zeus in the last bit of gameplay. For other uses, see Athena (disambiguation). ... This article is about the ancient Greek god; for other uses, see Ares (disambiguation). ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Holy Lance. ... This article refers to a mountain in Greece. ... For other uses, see Zeus (disambiguation). ...


Magic

Kratos is bestowed with magical powers as he successfully completes certain tasks during the plot. Initially, Kratos starts with the Poseidon's Rage magic, carried over from the original game, but loses this after sacrificing his magic power in an attempt to defeat the Colossus. However, Kratos regains other magic spells, including Typhon's Bane (a bow-like long range attack weapon), Cronos' Rage (an attack using electricity to strike multiple targets), the Head of Euryale (similar to the Medusa's Gaze from the first game, able to turn enemies to stone), and Atlas Quake (a wide area ground pounding attack). As with his weapons, Kratos can improve the potency and abilities of these spells by spending experience orbs. Neptune reigns in the city of Bristol. ...

In Greek mythology, Atlas was one of the primordial Titans. ...


Kratos also gains the Rage of the Titans power from Prometheus, which is similar to the "Rage of the Gods" from the first game. This power can only be activated initially when a meter has been filled either due to Kratos taking damage or collecting yellow/gold orbs from defeated foes. Activating the power increases Kratos' attack power for a short time and makes him invincible to knockback, stun, and petrify effects, though not invincible to damage. The player is allowed to activate and deactivate Rage of the Titans whenever they wish, unlike Rage of the Gods which had to be fully charged and then could only be fully drained.


Relics

There are two primary types of relics in the game that Kratos will collect. The first are special keys to open locked doors throughout the game, but otherwise have no power of their own. The other type of Relics are those that provide Kratos with a special power. Kratos starts the game with the Trident of Poseidon that lets Kratos to swim and breathe underwater indefinitely. Kratos also gains three additional Relics of this nature in the game: The Amulet of the Fates that allows Kratos to slow down time when close to a Fate statue, the Wings of Icarus that allow Kratos to glide after jumping, and the Golden Fleece which Kratos can use to reflect directed shots back at their sender. Jason returns with the golden Fleece on an Apulian red-figure calyx krater, ca. ...


Urns

In the game the Urns give Kratos special abilities and attributes when activated in a bonus play, which is unlockable after you beat the game, such as by giving Kratos infinite magic or Rage of the Titans. The Urns are either found during gameplay in well hidden spots or earned in Challenge of the Titans. The six urns are the Urns of Gaia, Gorgons, Olympus, Prometheus, the Fates, and Poseidon. Look up Gaia in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... In Greek mythology, the Gorgons (terrible or, according to some, loud-roaring) were vicious female monsters with sharp fangs and hair of living, venomous snakes. ...

Neptune reigns in the city of Bristol. ...


Armor

By completing the game or through other special criteria, the player can unlock armor for Kratos. The armor changes both Kratos' appearance and alters the benefits from the orbs in both positive and negative ways, thus altering the difficulty of the game. The armors include different costumes: a fish costume, making him the "Cod of War," armor made from the Hydra Kratos defeated in the first game, God Armour, which is the armor Kratos used in the beginning of the game, Dark Oddesey, which is essentially Kratos with black skin, and even complete appearance changes to either Athena or Hercules. The player can also wear the armor worn by Kratos at the start of the game in Rhodes which is the armor of the "God of War." Also, with God Armor, the Blades of Athena keep their gold look despite what level they are at. The player can only change armor when starting a new game on bonus play.

Animal cruelty controversy

Sony's marketing campaign included the presence of a decapitated goat at a party held in Athens for the launch of the game.[4] Distribution of an issue of the "Official PlayStation Magazine" containing photos of the event was halted after condemnation from animal rights groups.[5]
