How to get the Urn of Olympus

Here is one of the great God of War 2 cheats that few people know how to get. First, you have to obtain the Spear of Destiny. Once you have it, find the Statue of Fate near the pathway (next to the water). Push it down the stairs and move it towards the edge of the water. Move Kratos to the other side of the path so that you are in a straight line from the statue. Activate “slow time” (L1 + R1) with your PS2 controller and move Kratos towards the large button on the floor. Head through the door and grab the Urn of Olympus and surrounding treasures.
