     First: This walkthrough is to help you finish the VR training or get
    the fastes times on Time Attack mode. Second: I know this game is 4
    years old but it is still a great game and many people still buy it.
    That's why I wrote this Walkthrough. Hope this Walkthrough is going
    to help you.

                              VR Weapon Mode Complete!
                                Award: Survival Mode
    
    Survival mode: As same as gun shooting mode except you have 8 minutes
    To finish ALL the levels. And don't stress. And try not to waste to
    much bullets. Pick up bullets if a guard drop any. If you manage to
    do it, you'll get a demo that shows how to get the best times on
    weapon mode. That's why I didn't write how to get the best times on
    weapon mode.

    Or something like that in the subject if you know something like a
    tactic or something like that. If you don't write that in the subject
    it may get deleted by mistake. You can also e-mail me if there is a

    every tactic (or a typo that needs to be fixed or something else)
    that I will submit on this walkthrough will give you credit.
