You may need to take apart you PS2 and rotate the white gear about 1/8 of a turn or so and test with just the DVD lid on before you put it back together. If you still get the error try another 1/8 of a turn and so on. Detailed instructions and pictures can be found here on how to take apart your PS2 http://www.tweak3d.net/articles/ps2repair/4.shtml
God of War II being one of the few Dual-Layer discs on the PS2, it is possible that your problem originates from your PS2 lens being unable to read it correctly. The PS2 Slim is supposed to be able to read Dual-Layer, thus you should try cleaning your lens, it may be dirty, leading to this kind of error while still able to read Single-Layer discs.
This is a very common problem with playstation 2's. If you have a newer slim system its fairly simple to open the disc bay and use canned air to dust the lens. If its a thicker older model than theres not really much you can do. you can try a lens cleaner disc, but this rarely works.
Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)

Some ps2 models have defective lens coils that wont properly focus the lazer beam on the disc ive had this happen to me before, but to fix it, it requires you to replace the reader head. I can walk you through it, but only if you are comfortable in dissassembling/reassembling the ps2 with the chance of perminately harming your ps2 or yourself. Id advise you to take it to a repair shop for fixing.
the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
