[Section 2] - Walkthrough

You, Sam Fisher, are a covert operative of the National Security Agency.
During this demo mission, you are investigating the disappearance of a 
fellow operative (well, two operatives actually).  The mission starts out in 
the courtyard of a police precinct in Georgia (In Eastern Europe...not the US).

To begin, walk to door down the stairs.  Before you go, you may want to 
knock out the light before the door.  You can do this one of two ways.  
The most obvious way is to shoot the light.  The second way is to pick up 
an object, such as a Coke Can or a Bottle and throw it at the light.  
After you have broken the light, open the door.

Wait for the guard to leave his post, and go into the room ahead of you.  
Once he is out of sight, walk to the first or second wall area (the sections 
of the room where there aren't jail cells directly to the right and left of 
you).  Once there, perform a split jump.  

Wait up there for a while, until the guard comes out.  He will patrol all 
the way to the end of the jail cell, at the door.  The second he walks 
directly under you, hit jump to fall.  Your fall will knock him out.

Open the door leading to the place you started and drag his body into the 

(Optional) After that is done, go into the room that he went into after 
his initial patrol.  Check the computer for a data stick. 

After that, Crouch walk and continue into the precinct until you reach 
a clear sliding door.  Walk behind one of the large steel cabinets, and 
watch the man with a laptop hanging from his chest.  As soon as you can, 
sneak up to him, and grab him or knock him out.  You can also shoot him if 
you want, but your mission is not to kill.  If you grabbed him, you will 
get the option to interrogate him.  He'll tell you that he helped the doctor
 remove the subdermals inside the missing agents' head, and that you can 
find him in the morgue.  Make sure you hide his body in the dark also, 
don't want to cause an alarm.  You can also choose not to knock him out, 
but this is the easiest way.

(Optional) Check the computers in the room for a data stick.

The morgue is in the room you are in now, but don't go in right away.  
First, walk near the door, which will automatically open.  Whip out your 
Five-Seven and aim for the camera in the corner of the room.  The camera is 
the one with the red light.  You'll see a little "flare" or "explosion" if 
you shot the camera successfully.  Once that happens, just walk into the 
room.  You'll soon discover the bodies of the two missing agents.

(Optional) Break all the lights outside the locked door.  Pick the lock, 
and open the door.  The guard inside won't notice, and is watching static
on TV.  Shoot out the TV, and he'll go crazy.  Knock him out, and hide the body.
Or you can take a bottle and toss it at him.

Your mission objectives will now change.  Now you have to go upstairs, to 
the security room.

Head down the hallway, and you'll reach a door to a stairway.  Once in the 
stairway, you can shoot out the lights if you want.

(Optional) Open the door. Distract the guard, or kill him, and check his 
computer for a data stick.  The civilian will run out if you cause a commotion. 
He'll run out the precinct.  You can knock him out if you want.

Open the door at the top of the stair way.  Walk past the doorway to your 
left, and hide against the wall.  A civilian will enter the precinct, and 
file a complaint.  Wait for the conversation to end, and for the civilian 
to sit down.  Now go to the right wall, and lean against it.  Slowly advance
 to the far right corner, near the exit of the precinct.  When you reach 
the blinds, you will have to stop leaning, and crouch walk behind the 
blinds.  Once you reach the corner, crouch walk to the far left corner. 

There should be a "fence" doorway that you go through before reaching the 
left corner.  Once there, go to the door ahead of you.  This door leads to 
another stair way.  The door is another one of those automatic ones.

(Optional) Proceed through the door, and distract the guards.  Check the 
computers for datasticks.  You can also shoot them if that's your style....

(Optional) Pick the locks of the two doors straight ahead of you.  One room has
extra ammo, while the other is an interrogation room.  

Once you're at the top, lean against the right wall, and advance to the 
door at the far end.  In this room, there should be a curtain.  Carefully 
crouch walk into the curtain, and sneak up on the guy at the computer.  
Knock him out, and drag his body into a dark place.  The satchel that he 
drops contains a data stick.  Go onto the computer, and you will gather the 
information needed.  Now all you have to do is go to the extraction point.

Backtrack back to the Precinct Entrace, where the civilian filing a 
complaint is, and go through the door and run outside.  A speeding chicken 
van should show up and pick you up.

You just beat the level!  Now play it again and again.

[Section 3] - Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How come their lips don't move?

Answer: They didn't code lip synchronization at the time of the demo 
creation, there will be moving lips in the final full version, however.

Question: Why do the bodies clip through the wall?

Answer: Again, the demo version contains bugs and glitches not found in 
the final version.  Don't worry about it.

Question: I ran out of ammo! How do I get more?  Why can't I pick up enemy 

Answer: There is one locked room, on the top floor, where you can pick up 
an extra clip of ammo.  As for enemy weapons.........
Straight from the dev's mouth at the http://www.splintercell.com public forums:

"- Realism: real special ops operatives are not using any other equipment 
than their own equipment. You don't know what to expect, it's too dangerous.

- Gameplay : it is hard to balance a good stealth gameplay if you can get a 
new gun at anytime. We didn't want the game to become a shooter..."

Question: The AI is t3h sux0r!!!!

Answer: Demo version.  AI is t3h 1337 in t3h final version.

Question: The level is too small.  Are all levels going to be like this?

Answer: No, not at all.  The demo mission, in fact, is the smallest level 
in the entire game.  

Question: How do I turn on inverted controls?

Answer:  You can't with the demo.  This feature will be in the final 
version though.

Question: Is this game a console exclusive to Xbox?

Answer:  Maybe, Maybe not.  More information on this topic will be revealed 
next year.

Question: Tuesday's coming, Did you bring your coat?

Answer: I live in a giant bucket.

Question: Say, do you want to go see a movie?

Answer: I'm feeling fat, and sassy.

(As you can tell I'm tired, and I like the Rejected cartoon at 

[Section 4] - Assorted Tricks

There are a couple of things you can do in the game, (Some are pretty obvious).

1) Knock people out with bottles. - Throw the bottle at someone's head.

2) Strengthen your bottle/can toss - Hold Left Trigger while aiming/tossing.

3) Roll - While running or crouch running, hold B (crouch).

4) Split Jump - Double tap jump while near two close walls.  I find that it
                works best if you move closer to one wall before jumping.

5) Shoot Fire Extinguishers - Take gun.  Aim.  Fire.  Try walking into it.

6) Break lights - This one requires little explanation.

7) Stealth open doors - Hold the action button near the door, and move your
                        analog stick until the word "Stealth" appears next to
                        "Open Door".  Depending on where you push after this,
                         you will open or close the door.

8) Pick up Medkits - This one seems obvious, but for those of you that don't
                     know, those white kits with a red cross can be taken off
                     the wall.

9) Elbow people - Walk up to someone, don't grab them, and hit Right Trigger.

10) Grab pipes - Certain pipes on the ceiling can be grabbed if you jump.
                 If you hit crouch, your legs will grab onto the pipe.

11) Use people as human shields - Whip out your pistol while you've got someone,
                                  and BAM! human shield.  Of course you can
                                  always choose not to use your pistol, but then
                                  you can only walk backwards.

12) <Insert Extremely Obvious thing here> - Yea. You heard me.
