Clearly, Poseidon is as self-imposing as ever. In fact, one would normally think the battle be unfair, but as Kratos' track record has proven otherwise not even gods can phase this angry Spartan.

Just as with the previous encounters with Poseidon's incarnations, the battle will advance in three segments.

In the initial segment, Poseidon's giant claws grip the sides of the area and should be the focus of Kratos' unrelenting fury.


As you wail away on the claws, watch Poseidon for any tell-tale signs of an imminent attack, usually indicated by dramatic movements on his part and crackling blue energy gathering under Kratos' feet.

When the latter happens, roll away to avoid being seared by the ensuing lightning.

Eventually, the claws are pried loose from Gaia's head after a good deal of thrashing, at which point the location of the battle positions Kratos closer to Poseidon himself.

In this up and personal perspective, Kratos' attacks easily reach Poseidon, but expect him to retaliate in kind with jabs from both his trident and fist.

Poseidon also unleashes a more deadly attack, in which he thrusts his trident into the ground three times, each time emitting a burst of electricity.
