I know there are a few posts about glitches but ths is one I haven't been able to researche anything about. I just beat the statue and had lost the blade of olympus. Its right after the cutscene where Kratos spits up the blood. I should be at the part where I go after the lade and the Zues cutscene kicks in from what I've read. But after the screen pans down after the bird circles Kratos is gone! I can access my pause and power-up menus but no Kratos eventually even the music stops. I got kratos to appear once after being on pause for about an hour or so, but everything else was frozen. I posted a link to screenshot. I tried adjusting some setting on my PS2 but to no avail. If anyon has any ideas please let me know this is not a copied disc its brand new.
