God of War: Secret phone numbers easter egg:
-After defeating Ares, you will enter Olympus and approach your throne as the new god of war. There are two statues at the foot of your throne; statue of Ares and the huge undead minotaur. Hack and slash at both statues until they break. After breaking them both, a message will appear. It is phone number; call it and hear what happens: 1-800-613-8840
-Completing the game on God Mode unlocks an additional number (in Extras) with a unique message from the K-man himself: 1-888-447-5594
Note: Both of these numbers still work as of 2/25/2009!
God of War II: The Urn of Olympus hint:
After acquiring the Spear of Destiny, grab the Statue of Fate (time slowing) and push it down the stairs. From there, push it to the edge of the water from the pathway you came. Then, get to the other side of the path by running and swimming through the water. At the other side, slow time (L1 + R1) while making sure that you're in a straight line from the statue so you can activate the slowing of the time. Once the time is slown down, hurry up and backtrack to the large button floor, cross the water that is in the way by grappling it using R1. When you reach the button floor, head through the door and gather your treasures, of that including the Urn of Olympus.
God of War II: Amulet of the Fates/Outer Garden battle hint:
Do the following to avoid damage while dealing it in the Outer Gardens battle. When you reach the scene with the Fate Statue and behead it, wraiths and bats will attack you in the Outer Gardens. Skip all of them without attacking, evade damage, and with a powerful combo (or Rage enabled) smash them and the statue head blocking the exit. The head will disappear, leaving your path free and with no enemies to follow Kratos. If you were damaged while escaping, heal with the chest on the other side. If you don't want to keep fighting the enemies, leave them behind. If you still want blood and gore, return to the "bridge" side of the door. Cross into the actual Gardens room and you're free game, so be aware. Make powerful short-range attacks and most of the enemies won't get any hits through to you. Note: A wraith might try it's underground attack from the other side of the door, but you can still dodge it and it will return to the other side of the doorway while you remain safe.
God of War II: The Urn of Gaia hint:
The Urn of Gaia is located on the Colossus level, just before you see the Colossus' eye through the window. Its at the first block moving puzzle where there are a series of rooms and metal doors you must open. First, destroy the statue on top of the moving block. Then, when you get into the next room where there are doors on all sides of you, go into the room on your right while pushing the block. Push it all the way down the hall and then jump on top of it to access 2 blood chests and the Urn of Gaia.
God of War: Max out Kratos early:
When you first get Medusa's Gaze and must kill all the minotaurs, refuse the tutorial and instead cast Poisiden's Rage over and over. Kratos will have infinite magic in this "training" room since the game expects you to learn the Medusa gaze attack. With the respawning enemies, magic, and Poseidon Rage, you can rack up massive combos and gain enough XP to max out Kratos early. Note: Be sure to stock 25 to 30 thousand more XP than you need at that time so you can max out your weapons, magics, and skills later on.
God of War: Moving faster:
You can make Kratos move faster by rolling forward (press the Right Analog Stick forward) and cancelling the end of the roll with a Hermes Rush shoulder charge (press R1 when you've leveled up your Blades of Chaos). Repeatedly roll and shoulder charge to move forward at a much faster pace than Kratos' normal running speed.

God of War III: Extra Red Orbs:

Equip the Claws of Hades (which need to be at level 2 or higher). Repeatedly lash out with the Soul Rip (L1 + CIRCLE) and you'll get hundreds, even over a thousand hits on just a few enemies. The Soul Rip attack deals very little damage. On hard modes you can probably increase the hit count further and be rewarded with more red orbs. Note: If you don't back against a wall you'll have to move towards enemies a bit after each attack.
