    Jason McDonald Trophy Tips?

    This is the only trophy standing between me and the God of War platinum. I've read the trophy guide here as well as on one other site and I would like some tips.

    Use the costume that gives you infinite magic. Pretty much fly through the game. I did it with PLENTY of time to spare

    Dairy Bastard costume is your friend. Unlimited magic and big milk bottles to wallop your enemies with.

    Also keep in mind the fact that you dont have to kill everything. In certain areas such as the sewers under Athens, you can just dodge through the enemies and keep on moving. Saves loads of time.

    This is what I was going to say, it's not that hard to be honest.

    Also roll and rush like a madman (, followed by ), it's faster than simply running.

    Thanks! I already knew about this though During my first play through it glitched and the door wouldn't open (despite me checking five times to see if I'd killed all the enemies) so I had to use the glitch to get over the door.

    Avoid whatever battles you can my speed run was 2 hours 34 minutes, good luck, it's super easy, don't stress, remember that time still counts while in upgrade menu

    People fear what they can't understand, hate what they can't conquer

    While the upgrade menu counts pausing the game does not, correct? Also, so anyone know if time is counted when you're at a save point, saving a game?

    At this point I'm at the save point at Pandora's Temple and my time is 1:17:36.
    Am I on the right track and should be able to finish the game in plenty of time?

    Your in good shape with that time. If you keep the same pace you shouldn't have no problem getting the trophy and finish with around 3:45-4 hour mark.

    i used this guide to compare my times with if you wanna check it out. GameFAQs: God of War (PS2) God Mode Speed Walkthrough by StiksFA

    you should be fine you don't have to go out of your way to open every single chest or find every upgrade I did it casually and I had over 1 hour to spare on easy mode no costumes you don't need to fight every single enemy either just ones that are blocking your path with the gates only thing I really did was make sure I had a few eye upgrades and mainly powered up my blades and the artimes blade since that is the blade you will use in the end of the game this was one of the more easiers games to beat and to plat plus its a super fun game

    Thank you guys so much for all your help.

    Just an update for you guys but I'm at the save point right before the sacrifice (During Poseidon's Challenge) and I'm at 1:56:49 for my time.

    I think it's a good time but what has me worried is the Cliffs of Madness and Styx Below.

    You'll be fine man. Trust me. You made it that far in the game under 2 hours, meaning you'll beat the game with an hour and some change to spare. I did it with no special costume, just rolled, dodged unnecessary fights, and bulldozed through boss battles (played the hell out of it on the PS2, hence why I didn't need a special costume ). My original time was 2:45:15. But, since I was Red Orb grinding in the last battle with Aries, I finished in 3 hours exactly. Keep it up dude!!

    another hint unless your not fully confindent don't bother with the muse statues or even collecting the gods gifts that is unless you already have it just remember the final boss health bar is also yours so getting all the eyes don't matter and you cant use magic on the final boss so keep that in mind and you will be fine as for time you should be fine
