There wasn't much to rush in the story. You still ended up killing the big bad guy and stopped children from becoming little Jack the Rippers. The gameplay? Hell yes that was rushed. R00-R04 were awesome, full levels with plenty of enemies and obstacles to overcome. Then you get to 5 which is just one of the levels in reverse and shorter. Then "chapter R-06" was just a boss fight. And finally, chapter R-07, the one that deserved to be a long, grueling process, was overwhelmingly short.
Sam deserved his own stage and Armstrong deserved a longer one.
