what difficulty are you playing on and what level are each of your elements/ blades at?  -- The ONLY way to get health back is to either use Hades element to kill things (very little health back per kill if Hard or Titan)  or to beat a level... when you kill the gorgons you will get a whole spell worth of magic back-- so I suggest using 3 spells before 3 gorgons die :-).. when the Lightning Sirens come out (hardest part IMO)  spam all your magic either Ares or Zeus.. Zeus worked best for me-- and just try to ring them out--- Hades magic is pretty good too---- Poseidon not so much unless you can completely freeze them (its been a while for me)... after beating level 1 you will regain some magic/ health for level 2... I hope this helps.  Its not that hard at all once you know ahead of time what is going to spawn and how many of them.

Hi Grease Monkey sorry for not giving more details on my levels but I'm so tired from fighting with this stage of the game I can't think straight. Blades of Chaos fully upgraded, Hades blades fully upgraded Fire blades fully upgraded, blades of Zeus one level left to upgrade,  I haven't upgraded any of the special items so I can't make the green bubble. And I don't have enough red orbs points to upgrade any of them...Oh and I'm playing on normal. I heard there was a patch coming out is that out yet and if so where can I get it as this is Fu%$^ng ridiculous

It still baffles me how people are having issues with this even after the not needed patch. You are already playing the patched version.  This is a piece of cake. It isnt even a challenge.  Just use the orkos stone and the amulet every chance u get and keep blocking as much as u can. If u try to just outslug them u will lose. Either use the zeus or hades blades. The fire blade are pretty much useless.

Really ? This the patched version    ! Just what did they patch as I haven't seen any health chest or seen the game saving between levels so just what did  they change ? As for your advice you said use the stone and amulet as much as possible I know the stone is the green thing but what amulet are you talking about ? Is that my shadow Kranos ? I agree that the Hades  and Zeus blades are the best, but in the battles I've fought the magic in the fire blades seems to do more damage then the Hades blades as the gorgons just move out of the way when the arms start slapping around also you seem to get more hits out of the fire blades in close quarters.  However I do wish I had enough orbs to fully upgrade the Zeus Blades as I like those best. I'll keep trying I've looked a few videos of people who've gotten through this and they all say something different one says use "Magic Magic Magic " another says don't One says block & Parry the other says don't bother they says roll and keep moving, so I'm really not sure what plan of attack to take and I'd really be grateful for someone with more experience then I to help me figure out how to get passed this......God I'll be happy when Assassins Creed Black Flag comes out I so much prefer that to this kind of game.....LOL

Yea dont use the parry system. It is complete garbage. I was just kinda typing so the fire blades arent totally useless but i only used it for the R3 + L3. Yea im talking about ur shadow kratos he can be very helpful. I had everything maxed at that point so all i used mainly zeus and hades magic with maybe a little mix with the fire blades. There is already a thread of how to do this part as well.

OMG this is crap I'm done with this game I can't even get passed level one, all these people who show videos saying how they beat it ALL have the Amulet fully upgraded and can suspend enemy's in a green bubble and wail on them but if you can't don't that your screwed as I am. The patch did NOTHING to change any of the battles. The only thing it did does is give you a small amount of health and some magic back BETWEEN levels, but that doesn't do anyone any good if they can't get passed level one. SSM needed to lose the sirens as fighting four Gorgons is more then enough in such a tight confined space. Also they should add a save feature between levels. It's a total moral killer and pure B/S that after you beaten one level and advance to the next level that you have to do level one all over if you get killed on a different level.

Try using Ares magic to ring out the Sirens and then slow down one Gorgon while attacking the other.
