God of War
First released on the PlayStation 2 in 2005, then revamped for the PlayStation 3 in 2010, God of War introduces the character Kratos - a Spartan warrior who is on a path of redemption by stopping the god Ares from destroying Athens.
The game is a third-person action, where an assortment of button-configurations result in several attack combinations. Puzzles are also a major component to the challenges, where you will have to solve block jigsaws, operate levers under a timer, and find hidden passageways.
God of war has received much high praise by many critiques upon it's first release, and as of 2011, spawned two sequels.
Though at least 2 playthroughs are required, both can be performed under the Easy setting. Unlike many games, God of War does not have a trophy for completing on any expert levels. Many of the trophies - at least 75% - can be collected during a single round, since many are story-based.
The trophy I'll Take The Physical Challenge requires you to spend 2 to 4 hours (depending on your skills) going through various challenges, which are unlocked after beating the game. and for the trophy Speed Of Jason McDonald, you have to clear the game in under 5 hours - which is doable provided that you don't waste time battling unnecessary enemies. These two trophies are considered the most difficult, though are not too challenging.
In the beginning of the game, set the mode to Normal, than allow yourself to get hit and die in the first scene. After being killed a number of times, you'll be offered to play on Easy. Change the setting, and start playing.
There are a few missable trophies - such as Rockin' the Boat and Splash. Follow the guides provided in our Links page so you don't miss anything. Also, there are several ideal spots in which to gain the 200 combo necessary for the Hitman II trophy, and a glitch in which you can obtain infinite red orbs. Watch the Youtube videos we've provided so you'll know where these areas are, and be ready to claim the trophies.
Once you complete the story, and if you've been following the guides, you should have all the trophies except for I'll Take The Physical Challenge and Speed of Jason McDonald. Enter the Challenge of the Gods and - using the help from guides in our Links - complete them to be awarded the costume sets which give you bonus powers. Then, go through the game again at breakneck speed - rolling and hitting R1 to move quickly, and fighting only the "necessary" battles - to complete the game in under 5 hours.
