Because God of War: Chains of Olympus is a PSP exclusive game, this guide uses specific PS- buttons. For example, "press your 'Circle' button," or "Hold your 'Square' button". To get a list of your controls go to your "Select" menu and choose "Options" > "Display Controls".
The green bar is your Health and the blue bar your Magic. Every time you find five
Gorgon Eyes (scattered throughout the game in various Chests) your Health meter will increase. Every time you find five Phoenix Feathers your Magic will increase.
If you follow this guide you will max out both your health and your magic meters. With that being said, sometimes I found a Phoenix Feather where you may find a Gorgon Eye, and vice versa. However, all such chests are pointed out, so you will max out both meters.
Every time you kill an enemy, break a jar, or open a treasure chest you'll receive either Red, Green or Blue Orbs. Red Orbs can be spent on weapon and magic upgrades. Green Orbs refill your health meter. Blue orbs refill your magic meter.
Treasure chests, or simply, Chests, contain either Orbs, Phoenix Feathers, or Gorgon Eyes. Sometimes you'll see a chest which alternates between Blue and Green. Open the chest when it's green to get Green Orbs, when it's blue to get Blue Orbs.
When fighting certain enemies, you'll eventually spot a "Circle" icon appear above their heads. When this happens, get close to the enemy and press "Circle", thus activating a "Mini-game". The term "Mini-game" in God of War is not nearly as fun as it sounds, as all you must do is press a series of buttons as you are prompted to do so.
Although you can kill many of these enemies without going into a Mini-game, some enemies do require it. So, as a general rule, if you see a button sequence, just go ahead and pull it off. At the very least, you'll be rewarded with more Orbs for doing so.

God of War games are all very battle-intensive, and this one is no exception. There are many fighting styles and you need to become comfortable performing attacks and combos that you find to be effective. This guide contains recommendations and you can view the "Enemies" section below to get a general idea of what works best for what enemy. As you upgrade your weapons and magic be sure to check out any new combos that have become availablen by entering your "Start" menu, then hitting "L" or "R" until you pull up your "Moves" menu. Select the weapon/magic of choice to view combos.
Undead - Your general all-purpose skeleton soldier. They get better, stronger, and more aggressive as the game goes along. They also come in the forms of Archers, Swordsmen and good ol' skeletons. Use your charged Gauntlet on those with shields to break their shields, then finish them off as you wish.

Boars and Dogs - Kill them however you like.
Griffins and Ravens - In a few different parts of the game you'll be flying on a Griffin, a half-eagle, half-lion. You'll be battling other Griffins. You can use your Blades and your Bane of Typhon against enemy Griffins and Griffin Riders. When you see a "Circle", hit it to attack and rip off their wings. Ravens are flown by the elite riders. Sometimes you'll have to charge them with a dash attack while in the air, using "X".
Satyrs - Half-goat, half-man. Look out for their swords and finish them off as you wish.
Mega Minotaur - Half bull, half man. You'll get a "Circle" if you want to do a finishing sequence on them. Evade their heavy swords and take your time with simple Light and Heavy Attacks. Don't get caught up in a combo.
Cyclops - Just like the Mega Minotaur, you'll want to remain agile while fighting the Cyclops. This means you should avoid getting into combos (although magic is fine). Wait for the 1-2-3 attack, then move in with quick Light Attacks. Finish them off with a Mini-game.
Gorgons - Gorgons have the power to freeze enemies. If you get frozen, alternate between hitting "L" and "R" to break out of the stone. If you get hit while frozen, you'll shatter and die. To avoid being frozen stay out of a Gorgon's gaze by rolling or attacking. When prompted, do the button sequence to kill them.
Harpies - Annoying flying creatures. Use the Cyclones of Chaos on them to rack up combo points. Otherwise, then "Circle" grab move works beautifully.
Sirens - The singing Sirens will make you go crazy if you don't attack them quickly. If they do affect you, rapidly tap "L" and "R" alternately.
