    [SECTION 3]:
    Load Profile: Load Game
    New Profile: Create New Game **
    Delete Profile: Delete Saved Game
    ** Profile Trick:
    If your like me and own a Japanese PSP (White Ceramic for example)
    When you 1st start booting up your PSP & when you name it. 
    IF you put it in a different language. Like Japanese Hiragana. 
    When you 1st make your profile for Eragon.
    It will display your name from the PSP.. In whichever language 
    you set it as.
    So my USA Eragon game has my name "HITOSHI" in japanese characters.
    I'm japanese anyways. 
    [SECTION 4] :
    After profile is created or loaded:
    Main Menu:
    Single Player:
    Solo Missions that follow the story line of the movie.. 
    But not the book.
    (Read the book.. Saphira doesn't learn to breathe fire
     till way later on LoL I won't give it away..)
    Multi Player: (Ad Hock Arena)
    Host (Set up a Room) , Join (Join & Get a Room) , 
    or Gamesharing (Share some Love
    with friends who can't pay to play)
    Voice Volume: Speaking Vocals
    Music: Background Music
    SFX: Special Effects
    Invert Analog Stick = "up = down & Vice versa etc" (I play with a YES)
    Controls: (Game Guide of Buttons)
    Start of Game (Story mode side):
    The game tell your how to win the event or challenge.. 
    Just hit start for a hint.
    On later missions.. Not so much.. 
    But I'll list some tips on the harder ones.
    Mission 1 - "Close to Home": Basic Dragon Tutorial and 
    How to eat, Pick up rocks,
    Burn down trees, foes, friends LoL, and animals.
    Take Saphira out for a test drive. Your 1st tasks are to 
    learn her basic controls.
    You will then be taught how to Breathe Fire and Fire balls.
    Burn Lambs and pick them up to eat with Circle Button.
    You will also learn how to Pick up Rocks and use them to
    Destroy Archer Towers and Buildings (Like Wolves Dens)
    You will then have to face off with the Uragls.
    And rescue Eragon.
    War Wagons are not affected by Arrows, but some can be 
    Defeated by fire. Others you will need a barrel from a 
    Catapult or Flak Cannon or a pile of barrels. Or a Large Stone.
    To drop on them.
    2 - Burning Bridges: Learn how to interact with the sceneary 
    and also save your friends from certain doom. 
    HINT: Get used to the game in Arena Modes and learn 
    to pick up rocks & barrels and dive bomb it into 
    Armored Boats or vechicles.
    You'll be on your own for this one with Sahira
    You'll need to clear all the bridges and area of enemies.
    Then you must fend off enemies attacking brom & eragon
    on the bridge...
    You can destroy the bridge near eragon to help slow down
    the warrior melee attackers. But not arrows or the war boats
    Make sure you are careful not to burn the huts
    Or game over.. They will say no one will trust a dragon
    As soon as you save brom and eragon and finish a mini quest.
    You will have to fly back to eragon and pick him up &
    take him to safety.
    3 - A Dragon Rider is Born: Brom Teaches Eragon 
    how to use Arrows and Magic.
    Hint: Use Flame Arrows to Scare away Razick long 
    enough to grab a Firey Spell to stun
    them long enough to dive bomb and grab them.. 
    Then quickly drop them at the Waterfall
    In the valley. To smash and kill them against the jagged rocks.
    In this tutorial you will learn how to catch and eat flying foes.
    Shoot them down with arrows. Learn how to fire arrows and 
    Flame Arrows to take down Buildings.
    You will learn how to use Brisingr
    to destroy buildings, enemies, certain stones area's, and
    use it to stun Razick to pick them up and drop them on
    rocks below in the valley of the caves.
    Its a hardcore tutorial.
    4 - A Second Rescue: 
    In any case.. For the this area.. Magic Spells are hidden from you.. 
    You need to kill
    or destroy Archer Towers or certain armored units to get the spells 
    you need
    One of which is a Time Freeze Spell.
    Slows time for a short duration.
    There is a sign you need to hit with a arrow and then use the time 
    freeze to quickly
    fly down a tunnel before the gate closes.
    As well as you need to kill off all 3 gate guards who are turning the 
    wheels to hold
    up the gate. To make the gate fall for a few seconds.
    Here you will have to fly though the castle in search of different
    ways to rescue the Elfen girl.
    5 - Escaping Durza: Kill the Wizard Durza
    Okay this one is tricky, but Easy.. Kill Durza.. Grab whatever 
    Spell, item, or icon that is on the screen. Till Disease appears. 
    Then grab the Firey Blast Spell. Use the Repulsion spell 
    if you have to fly close to Durza
    Actully how I did it was.. Hide behind the stone arches and hold 
    "Square" button to strafe side to side from Durza's view and 
    his Lightning spells
    Taunt him to cast and quickly strafe behind the stone arch. 
    Line your target sight with him. When after the blast hits the Stone. 
    Move out quickly strafing.
    And cast Disease.. it fires in a Straight line.
    It will eat at his magic and remove the shield for a short time.
    If you have the Fire Blast Spell BRISINGR use this on him now..
    Just make sure you detonate it away from YOU.
    2 BRISINGRs will kill him.. 1 will drop his life to critical if done 
    correctly. His Spells get quicker as he starts to lose life.
    Make sure though when you cast your Disease spell make the 2 aim marks
    red before you let go.. or the Spell will backfire.
    Repeat till Durza is dead.
    Now you have to Escape.
    You'll have another go for a gate at the end which you will 
    have to learn how to shoot quickly an arrow to the target and then 
    fly through the
    tunnel to use the Slow Time Freeze Spell (Pinkish looking circle spell)
    to make the end of the tunnel. 
    Quick tip: Hold a extra Solider in your dragon talons when your HP Dips low..
    then eat him on this next tip.. Stay behind the tower and let the stupid NPC
    Catapult launch Barrels that will destory the tower for you to get the Spell
    Of Freeze time at the end.
    6 - The Road to Farthen Dur:
    This one is simple. Keep Keep Murtagh Alive whose on horse back.
    And Ayra is on his horse. 
    On "Road to Farthen Dur":
    Just fly ahead of him and clear out all the enemies.. only
    after the 1st bridge new enemies respawn by him.. by the 2nd none..
    Just clear out the enemies and the Towers with Flame Arrows or Bomb it 
    twice with Barrels or Stones.  Barrels also EXPLODE.. So stay Clear.
    (The Bridges require you to drop a stone on the pedistal to lower the bridge.)
    (Use Brisingr to destroy the rock walls.. Archer Towers that you destroy 
    with Barrels, Stones, Flaming Arrows will sometimes leave behind Spells, 
    but in this one. Its the Stone Structors that do. Only the 1st tower in 
    the begining holds the Fire Spell Brisingr)
    On the last bridge you do not need to lower it for him..
    Just clear the area and destroy the fortress with Barrels.
    And he will tell you to fly though the Waterfall.. Even if you don't fly though
    it. You still Clear the mission.
    7 - Battle Under Farthen Dur:
    Protect the Fortress from invaders.. 
    Easy way.. destory the catapult and take one of its barrels. Drop 2 of them 
    1 at a time on to the war wagon placed (If looking at the Fortress: the one on
    the right holds a freeze spell)
    Use the Freeze Spell to freeze the Stalagtite and hire ball it till it drops..
    Freeze the one closest to you 1st. Then the 2nd.. 
    to stop on coming enemies and burn away...
    As soon as this is done. You will be instructed to Set the Oily Swamp
    On FIRE & Watch your enemies BURN in the Swamp.
    Make sure your enemies Flak Cannon or Catapult is sub-merged before you set
    it A BLAZE
    2nd part:
    Then you must defend the Prison where your friend Murtagh is being held.
    Larger soldiers will build Turrents. Make sure kill them 1st.
    Before you kill the War Wagons that depoly smaller melee soldiers. 
    That will attack the Prison.
    Wait till one of the War Wagons drives up the Bridge to the middle
    of the bridge to the prison.
    Then fire ball it and a Ice Storm spell shall appear.
    Then freeze the bridge and destroy it will a fire ball.
    Then clear out the last of the enemies and the prison will be safe..
    You will then have to fly back to reinforce protection of the area
    Before the game will progress on. You will need to protect 
    the Mines. 
    8 - Final Assault: 
    The Battle is a upgraded version battle of the last one you
    In this one you must defend the Towers that your friends are wailing 
    the attackers in.. then you must defend the surrounding area's.
    But last but not least. You will have to Protect the Mines again.
    Just make sure you take out the Ballistas and the Catapults first.
    Also remember your fireballs can also cause Friendly Fire
    and dmg or kill the things you are trying to protect.
    You will need to fly back and forth in this one and protect everything you
    just protected in the last Mission #7.
    But your Dragon Breathe WIll be upgraded to FIRE BREATHING
    So that you can take out enemies faster.
    9 - Durza's Beast = BEAT HIM & Its THE End of the GAME
    Hes the FINAL BOSS!!!
    TO kill Durza.. in under 1 minute..
    Just lead him to follow you in a straight line.. Hit "Square" x2
    and turn around then target him.. he will run away and you leap on his back
    and swipe your sword .. repeat till hes finished.
    Hidden in the caves to your left and right are spells..
    There are NO Livestock or enemies you can eat for HP
    You need to kill Durza Quickly because you will have no defense
    Vs his fire spells. Only Repulse for a quick while.
    YOU BEAT IT!! ^_^
