I just bought this game at EB for 15 bucks, and since no one else seems to have written anything about it, I suppose I will. This game is a really rocking futuristic helicopter fighter. So, without further ado... 2. Revision 1.0 You're lookin' at her. The A #1 G-police FAQ IMHO. ================================================================================================= II. Overview 1.Story In the future, namely 2089, The Governing council established the Government Police, or G-Police, to maintain order on Earth and its protectorates. The natural resources on Earth were tapped, so man had turned to the stars. In doing so, they created colonies that then turned to chaos. After a series of debilitating wars, only the corporations were left. They formed the Governing Council. You are Paul Slater, ex-military and general badass. Your sister was a G-Police on Callisto. After cracking a big case, she committed suicide. You don't buy it. Travelling out to Callisto on the cruiser Hermes, you join Elaine's old unit and begin active duty... 2.Weapons Henschel AAG-53E 25mm A rapid-fire vulacan cannon-style machine gun. Can be doubled up on the Venom funship. Smaller shells with less firepower. Has Infinite ammo, but will overheat. Lavochkin GSh45-80 30mm Standard issue on all Havoc gunships. Fires at a high rate, similar to the Henschel, but cannot be double-mounted. Has Infinite ammo, but may (and will) overheat. IR Seeking Air-to-Air missiles Air missiles that lock on to target using R1. Can be fired as a "dumb" missile if no object is currently locked on. Fire in groups to make them effective. Hyper-Velocity Missile Dumb missiles with no lock-on capability. Travel fairly quickly, very effective on a slow moving target. Can be fired rapidly to achieve best results. Henschel HS38 Firestreak Missile Less powerful than its IR counterpart, this is a better tracker. A Faster, more manuverable missile that can really chase those baddies. MATRA 973 Unguided Rocket Dumb rocket, with the neato-cool capability of firing 3 rockets for every ammo pack. Pretty nifty for finishing off that last guy. Henschel Starburst Dispersion Missiles Fires in a pack of eight missiles, which can be overkill in certain situations. Cluster Bombs Wow, a weapon that is EXACTLY what the name says. This is a cluster bomb. It falls, in a cluster, then bombs. Wow. Use with the prediction targeting device. 500kg Bomb Heavy bomb that causes heavy damage. Must be used in conjunction with that groovy HUD bomb predictor targeting device thingy. 1000kg Bomb Now THIS is THA BOMB. Massive damage. Massivemassivemassive. Use this bad boy with the prediction device. Rothbart Optics BW26M 80GW Military Laser Nasty pinpoint weapon that will whoop on whatever it's pointed at. Note: Will cause Havoc to Souffle if used incorrectly. Will overheat. Villenuve Industrie Plasma Launcher Charged weapon that will, once again, do severe damage to the poor sap on the other end. Hold X to charge, then let go to let loose. Rothbart Optics Electronic Pulse Paralyzer The EEP is used to freeze the vehicle's onboard computer. Necessary in some missions to catch criminals. Will blow up civilians. Ground Deployment Beacon Used to direct ground units to the location the beacon is currently burning. Those chode ground units will roll up eventually, but don't hold your breath. Wingman On many missions, you'll have a wingman to help you. Selecting the wingman is like other weapons. Really handy against those stupid robots in Mission 5. 3.Vehicles The only Vehicle I have discovered so far is the DASA-Kamov Havoc gunship. The "Venom" is mentioned in the description of the Henschel 25mm, but I haven't hit it, mission-wise, yet. The Havoc is an air-support gunship that is currently being used by the G-police to suppress urban disturbances. It functions something like an Apache gunship, famed in the 20th century for its capabilities. Though outdated, the Havoc continues to be the prime weapon in the G-Police arsenal. 4.Control Down-Dip the Nose of the Havoc Up-Raise the Nose of the Havoc Left-Swing Left Right-Swing Right Triangle-Go forward Note:Need not hold to continue acceleration. Double tap and hold to use after burn. Square-Go backwards. Use same as Triangle. Circle-Switch weapons. Use up and Down in conjunction with Circle to switch. X-Fire weapon. Plain and simple. L1-Increase Altitude straight up. L2-Decrease Altitude straight down. R1-Lock on. Also used to scan objects. R2-Air Brake. Used with directional buttons. Select-Cycle through the Viewpoints. Start-Confirm choice. ================================================================================================= 1.General Hints Every time you climb into your Havoc, remeber this: YOUR CANNON IS YOUR NUMBER ONE FRIEND. Especailly in the early missions, if you can line up an enemy in your crosshairs and let loose. The cannon does not overheat quickly at all, and cools down relatively quickly, so that isn't much of a pain in the butt. There is something REALLY satisfying in bringing down a bogey with nothing but skill. Don't fire guided missiles at close range, the enemy tends to turn a trifle too quick for them to catch up. When firing dumb missiles, fire in groups of two or three and they will take a hunk out of their armor. Use your altitude increase to quickly get out of trouble. They won't be able to aim too well if you're 300 feet in the air. Keep the sound up. You'll constantly be recieving updates from HQ and wingmen, so it's worthy to listen. Besides, the music is pretty decent. That's it for now, I'll be adding more as soon as I get farther. 2.The Missions Mission 1- Primary Objectives- *Scan Crates for Illegal Arms *Seek out and Destroy Smugglers Secondary Objectives- *Protect Ground Team Epsilon Armarments- *30mm Cannon *10 IR Missiles *20 Matra Rockets *No Wingman *Ground Team Delta Notes: Fairly Straightforward mission. Scan the crates using R1 and follow the trucks. The last one you scan will be the one you have to destroy. There are various flying enemies about, but you should be able to shut 'em down without much trouble. Mission 2- Primary Objectives- *Escort Ground Team Delta *EPP Escaping Suspects *Protect disabled Vehicle Secondary Objectives- *Destroy all Gang Units Armarments- *30mm Cannon *10 IR Missiles *20 Matra Rockets *No Wingman *Ground Team Epsilon Notes: Escort mission. Exactly the kind I hate. Try and keep eveyone alive while you progress through the domes. There are 3 ambushes, one after another in the first dome. Don't listen to the Ground Team, just pursue and kill without mercy. Hunt down all the units as fast as possibile. You'll be facing some turrets in dome 2, so bust out the heavy janx. EPP and defend the criminals, but try to catch them before they get into the next dome. Mission 3- Primary Objectives *Follow Rogan *Eliminate Gang Fighters *Protect Ground Team Gamma *Eliminate Rogan Edwards Secondary Objectives *Destroy all gang units Armarments *30mm Cannin *10 IR missiles *20 Matra Rockets *5 Beacon *No Wingman *Ground Team Gamma Notes: Just keep Rogan in sight. As you go through the second dome, you'll be ambushed by two fighters. Skirmish a bit, but keep after Rogan. In the 3rd dome, Rogan will set down at a factory-type building, after a minute or so, that weenie back at headquarters will tell you to set down a beacon. After Gamma gets there, they will be attacked. Follow Rogan to his next destination, where he'll sit until you go off to defend ground team. As soon as you eliminate the threat to ground team, go back to where Rogan sat down. You'll have to drop another beacon. Then follow Rogan to the warehouse. Eliminate Rogan after the barrels explode and the fighter pop out. Beware: these guys are quite a bit faster and can turn on a dime. Kill everyone and mission complete. Mission 4- Primary Objectives *Rendez-vous with Tachikawa *Protect Presidental Shuttle *Seek out and destroy vehicles attacking shuttle Secondary Objectives *Destroy all gang untis (sense a theme? :) Armarments *30mm Cannons *15 IR Missiles *20 Matra Rockets *Wingman:Tachikawa *No Ground Team Notes: Another one of those tedious escort missions. Destroy as much as fast as possible. Nuke those trucks REALLY fast. They can put a damper on your day if you aren't watching you radar. The Prez climbs into her limo after wandering around the dome for a while (sightseeing?) and the mission is over. Mission 5- Primary Objectives *Escort President's limo to Krakov HQ Secondary Objectives *Rendez-vous with President's limo *Destroy Roadblock *Destroy Roadblock 2 Armarments *30mm Cannon *15 IR Missiles *20 Matra Rockets *Wingman:Tachikawa *No Ground Team Notes: Woo-hoo. Love those escort missions. This time, your ground support is pretty good, so you really shouldn't have to worry a whole lot about severe damage to the limo. If you see a big white line of enemies on the ground, that's one of the roadblocks. Try to get to the turrets first as to prevent the most damage. You have some heavy fire from the air, but you can probably handle that now, can't you? Mission 6- Primary Objectives *Destroy Robots attacking civilians in Nar Dome *Destroy Robot In Loni Dome *Destroy Robots outside GPHQ Secondary Objectives *Minimal Civilain casualties in Nar Dome *Minimal damage to Nanosoft compund *All GP fighters survive Armarments *30mm Cannon *6 IR missiles *40 Matra missiles *6 Firestreak missiles *Wingman:Ricardo *Ground Team:None Notes: Now THIS is what I'm talkin' about. Seek and destroy! Wait a sec, that's a pretty powerful laser...Those robots can be a serious headache, so here's how I do it. Lock on using R1. Now get high enough and far enough away that you can just pick up the crosshairs. Now go to town, and pick off as much armor as possible. They may fire back, and their aim is relatively good, and those lasers can hurt!!! You'll encounter a few air units in the Nanosoft compound, but nothing to get excited about. Mission 7 Primary Objectives *Disable Krakov Shuttles in Tinor Dome *Protect shuttles in Tinor Dome *Disable Krakov Shuttles in Nar Dome *Protect shuttles in Nar Dome Secondary Objectives *All shuttles survive Armarment *30mm Cannon *8 IR missiles *40 Matra rockets *8 Firestreak Missiles *12 EPPs *Wingman:Ricardo *Ground Team:None Notes: This is where a nice large arsenal begins to develop. This is a fairly simple mission, I got through it this first time. You have to get to those shuttles fast. Make gratuitous use of you afterburners. Once captured, the shuttles will be attacked by evil, evil men. Three and four ships will be coming at you at once, so remember your wingman and just destroy as fast as possible. Mission 8 Primary Objectives *Destroy Gang bikes laying Explosives *Protect the yard from continued attack *Destroy Gang Base Secondary *All buildings must survive Armarment *30mm Cannon *10 IR missiles *40 Matra Rockets *10 Firestreak Missiles *5 500kg bombs *Wingman:Ricardo *Ground Team:None Notes:This one is pretty cool. The only problem I had was constantly scraping my belly on the ground as I chased those stupid bikes. Kill everything on the ground first. There'll be a lot of Air-to-Air going on, but take out those ground units first. There's gonna be a lot of planes flying around, but just take them out, one at a time. The gang base is NOT well-hidden (or well defended for that matter.) Drop a few bombs and BAM!, you're done. Author's Note: I realize there are more missions, and I'll be writing them up as I go on, but here's the first part anyway. ================================================================================================= IV.Other 1.Cheats None yet 2.Passwords 2:MEIULZAA 3:GNGXMECA 4:YSYSDGEA 5:MKSHKIPA 6:GBBWKEHA 7:WTTUYRIA 8:UAKOPCZI 9:SFRRMKAJ 3.About the Author I'm just a guy who had too much time on his hands on a Sunday night. I attend high school, get more sleep there than I do at home, and generally live a normal life. When not plotting the death of his spoiled step-sister, the author enjoys soccer, reading, computers, writing, and just chillin'. ================================================================================================= Copyright info- This Document Copyright 1999 Jeff Brust.
