start the game with iron armor and the soul reaver

At the main menu(where it says, new game, load, etc.) you push: L1,R1,L2,R2,square,circle, triangle. If you do it right, you will hear kain say something, and when you start a new game(wont work for loaded saves) you will have the best weapon and armor in the whole game, making it a breeze to kill all those nasty bosses!
If you have the soulreaver cheat activated, then when you enchant your weapon, obviously it remains for the duration of the level.
With the soulreaver cheat it also is possible to kill civilians with the single stab.
With an enchanted soulreaver, if you use fury on Faustus he will instantly go to the cutscene where he runs into the mist filled room.
With an enchanted soulreaver it is possible to hurt sebastian without having to lure him into the mist. However, this sometimes does not work and the game seems to forget that it has given you the reaver. Fury almost always works, however, unless he somehow manages to dodge it.
You can get your health to maximum really quickly if you do this;
Before running over the save point, kill everyone in the area. Then run over the save point, update your save and restart the game from that point, then people you just killed will all be there again. If you do this at every available save point, you will get maximum health extremely early on in the game.
One problem, sometimes when you stop a game in which you are doing this and restart it again, the game is a bit angry at you, and it makes your lore bar to the max, then decreases your health to about three millimetres long and you die of thirst before progressing any further. However, this has only happened to me once.
