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 :)
your lense is more than likely defragmented jacob and you should never take any system apart okay so what you wanna do is if your warrenty is still in effect dont tell sony you took it apart just send it in for a refurbisment if it isnt you need to look around online for a ps2 slim lense okay
There were two versions of the multi-tap made; one for the original fat
PS2 and a smaller version made for the slim. The two versions are
incompatible with the other PS2. If you have the original multi-tap
connected to the slim, it should throw out the 'controller
disconnected' message when you boot up. The slim version of the
multi-tap should have a sticker on the bottom saying 'only works with
models SCPH-70000, SCPH-75001, SCPH-75002'.
Other than the sports games, I don't recall any titles that allow more than two players anyway.
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
