Oh man I remember this. I thought it was pretty weird to go into a Hydra's mouth just to take a key from the Captain.
lol i keep remembering this guy that Kratos didn't save. He will be back in the sequel. I really hope he is a mini-boss in a GOW III having is revenge from Kratos for killing him twice...lolol
I never played these games on the PS2 and now that I have a PS3 seems like the perfect time to get both :) Woo hoo!
