    Intro a1
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    This is my first walkthrough, so there are bound to be some mistakes or
    something I haven't done that needs to be here. I am also writing this
    with a very erratic space key, things I will accept in an email are:
    alternate ways to missions, questions about things I haven't covered
    (within reason) and most stuff like this. What I don't is a load of people
    asking for cheats, telling me about cheats. This goes for downloads as well.
    It's possible there are some spoilers here as well, so don't read ahead of
    the mission you are on.
    
    I wrote this guide specifically for Microsoft Xbox, I am assuming the
    Gamecube and PS2 versions of the game are the same but there may be
    slight differences for which you can use the other guides which are
    available from GameFaqs.com
    
    Now thats out of the way, let's get on with the game. True Crime is a vast
    exspanse of map and game, it takes around five minutes to get from left side
    to right meaning that there are alot of people to arrest and lots of crimes
    to solve.
    
    About a1a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    There is alot of fighting in True Crime, there is alot of shooting in True
    Crime, there is also a fair amount of driving in TC. All of these systems;
    Fighting, shooting, driving are very good and each have their own unique
    characteristics, there are moves to learn in the fighting and combos. In
    driving you can get new skills and better cars. In shooting you get new kinds
    of guns and different addons and ammunition for guns.

    Walkthrough
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Episode 1 - e1
    
    
    Shooting Practice: e1a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Wooden targets
    
    Easy, basically shoot out ten targets
    with your gun. Unless you have changed
    the controls it's right trigger to
    shoot and hold it down to enter precision
    mode whcich will give you a more accurate
    shot. Now you got gun, and the chief will
    come in and ask you to join the EOD.
    
    
    Rushing to EOD: e1b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    You have 90 seconds to get to the EOD
    headquarters. Easy enough considering
    you don't crash into too much traffic.
    Turn your car round and drive the other
    way. Don't run down peds and watch the 
    timer which shouldn't be too hard to
    beat. If you fail this, try again.
    Driving is an important skill in TC.
    
    
    Driving for Chow: e1c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Don't rush to your next mission, get to
    know the map. Respond to random crimes
    and earn the upgrades. Go frisk people
    and solve crimes before you get upgrades
    because you badge points which you get:
    
    Beat criminal in fight - 10 points
    Apprehend Criminal     - 10 points
    Successful frisk       - 5  points
    
    
    Triad Muscle: e1d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Triad guy
    
    Fight the triad guy with a chopstick
    through his brain. He's suprisingly
    good considering his disadvantages.
    Attack exposed areas, get combos in
    when they are stunned. In the top right
    corner there are a number of bars, each
    hit you get in one bar goes away. The
    bar will go back up in time and when
    they get hits in so when you get the bar
    down to zero you can perform a combo
    you learned at the dojo or from the
    bonus cruisin' missions. Just keep
    banging on the fight keys. (B,X,A)
    
    
    Finale: Rosie Trouble: e1e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Triad guy with gun
    
    The Triad guys still after you! And this
    time he's properly armed, but don't worry
    so are you. You can hide behind cars (A)
    and leap out (Y) while shooting. But with
    this guy you may as well just walk out and
    keep shooting at him as he will not put up
    much of a fight. One thing is to reload when
    you have the chance (black).
    
    
    Bonus Cruisin'
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    If you completed all the levels then at the
    end of the finale then you will get a chance
    to get a new skill, combo in fighting, a new
    gun or a new car which you can pick up from
    the impound lot marked by a yellow P. If you
    don't solve the episode 100% you will have to
    solve some crimes.
    
    
    
    
    Episode 2 - e2
    
    
    Cruising for Leads: e2a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Another driving to mission, in the next mission
    you'll have to fight your brother who is quite good
    . So drive to your brothers dojo, and on your way
    pick up new fighting skills at the 24/7 dojos.
    
    
    Dojo Attacker: e2b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Cary
    
    A mysterious attacker will come out and challenge
    you, it turns out he's your brother. Pretty simple
    only a little bit harder than the triad thug  you
    faced earlier in the cafe.
    
    
    Red Lantern Rush: e2c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Just get to the target should end up with about
    10 to 20 seconds left. San Pedro,  LA Street then
    onto Temple. Easy.
    
    
    Bar Brawl: e2d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Feng
    
    From the start your attacker, Feng, will be
    very unfair. He has a knife, get some good
    solid punches in there and get him to drop them
    with a grapple. Then pick it up (B) it will
    help you against him. 
    
    
    Chasing Triad Thug: e2e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Triad thug
    
    Try to stop him getting in a car, just keep chasing
    after him and shoot when you get the chance of a
    clean shot take it. Even if he does manage to get in
    a vehicle.
    
    
    (alt) The Arsonist: e2f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Arsonist
    
    This is a fun mission as it's a driving one, you have
    guns. He's trying to get away, take his tyres out
    first with precision, you get about 5 seconds where
    it goes slow and you get a good chance to get him.
    Once you get close and he's slow then take
    alot of shots to set his car on fire, eventually
    he'll get out and surrender.
    
    
    Driving to Jimmy's: e2g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Driving mission, do whatever and then go to
    the green dot.
    
    
    Sneaking In: e2h
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Unsuspecting people
    
    First of the stealth missions in the game
    use chop (X) for good cop ponts and the
    deadly chop (B) for bad cop points, walk through
    the level observing guard patterns while hiding
    and decide the best time to strike. Be
    careful not to stand on anything that might
    make a noise and alert the guards, ie paper,
    boxes. If they are alerted press right
    trigger to use your tranq. This applies
    to all stealth missions.
    
    
    Jimmy's Ambush: e2i
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Jimmy's crew
    
    Killing Jimmy's crew is the aim here, keep
    running through and take a breather at each
    section as on the first part the enemies
    come as you approach them then stand in the
    slightly protected part and take out the next
    set of enemies while taking cover behind the
    post. 
    
    
    Sniper Assassin: e2j
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Sniper
    
    The sniper will keep moving and so
    should you, don't bother using precicion
    aim and move round constantly are the
    best tips for this mission. You can duck
    up at the windows with (B).
    
    
    Bonus Cruisin'
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    For this one I reccomend getting a guns upgrade
    as it will help you in whatever you are doing.
    The dummies will not have much firepower, they
    seem to use tennis balls, so even if you are
    bad at avoiding them they are not too hard.
    
    
    
    
    Episode 3 - e3
    
    
    Off to Chongs: e3a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Driving mission, do whatever and then go to
    the green dot. It would be useful to enhance
    your gun skills on this level to whatever you
    can manage.
    
    
    Tailing Chong's Limo: e3b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Chong
    
    The first tailing mission, it's better to be
    too close than too far away here as you have
    five question marks that will fill up when
    you get too close. If you get some marks slow
    down a little and keep in the middle of the
    bar. 
    
    
    A Stakeout Gone Bad: e3c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Cars chasing you
    
    There are two ways to complete these kind of
    missions where you have to escape, one is to
    just drive as far away as possible taking lots
    of sharp corners to escape. The other is to
    swing round corners, wait then shoot the hell
    out of the following car(s), rinse and repeat,
    when you've gotten rid of them just drive away
    to win.
    
    
    Driving to Spa: e3d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Driving mission, do whatever and then go to
    the green dot. Get more fighting and shooting
    upgrades, this will help in the following
    missions.
    
    
    Spa Infiltration: e3e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Unsuspecting people
    
    Second of the stealth missions in the game
    use chop (X) for good cop ponts and the
    deadly chop (B) for bad cop points, walk through
    the level observing guard patterns while hiding
    and decide the best time to strike. Be
    careful not to stand on anything that might
    make a noise and alert the guards, ie paper,
    boxes. If they are alerted press right
    trigger to use your tranq. This applies
    to all stealth missions. Get to the steam room
    at the end to win.
    
    
    (alt) Russkie Trouble: e3f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Enemy: 4 guys
    
    Fight the four guys, take the one that looks
    different to all the others first because
    he will be good at taking health while you
    fight the other weaker guys. The cronies
    won't take many hits befor they are stunned
    so just take them one at a time.
    
    
    Shower room antics: e3g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Enemy: 5 men in towels
    
    Okay, you are in a locked shower rooms with
    four fat guys wearing only towels. Don't
    worry they won't fall off. Try and lure them
    one at a time into a corner, beat them up and
    go after the next one. After you defeat the
    first four then another guy in just pants will
    come out of a cubicle. He's not too hard on
    his own so just use some combos and take him
    down.
    
    
    The Accomplice: e3h
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Lots of people
    
    Hope you got those shooting upgrades as theres
    alot of shooting and killing here. Stay away
    from bad guys who could potentially kill you
    if you stay too close. The enemies will come
    about three or four from each door going round
    the room, so kill one set, take guns, then kill
    next set. One of the middle pillars has a
    health pack on it. After about ten sets of
    killing, the purple guy you saw at the
    beggining will come out, assuming you got some
    uzis or shotguns a moment ago then just shoot
    till he goes down and he won't fire back while
    he's taking hits.
    
    
    Bonus Cruisin'
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Reccomended:
    Take the driving test, race, to get a new car
    
    
    
    
    Episode 4 - e4
    
    
    En route to auto shop: e4a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Take a good, fast car then drive to the
    destination.
    
    
    Grease Monkeys: e4b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Spanner monkeys
    
    Fight the guys in the garage, first the two
    guys. Steal their spanner and hit them with
    it. Then kick the car and it'll fall down.
    Then another guy, keep hitting him and quickly,
    The fuel barrels will explode when kicked,
    or when you kick someone into it. Useful but
    hard.
    
    
    Chasing Francis: e4c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Francis
    
    Accelerate fast and catch up, be ready to turn
    and fire rapidly when you get close. Use any
    driving upgrades you've collected so far
    such as PIT to catch him.
    
    Off to the Gulag: e4d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    It's a long way to the destination and there
    are alot of dojos on the way so pick up some
    fighting skills. After take a good, fast car
    then drive to the destination.
    
    
    Another way in: e4e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Unsuspecting people
    
    Another sneaking mission, use good chop (X)
    for good points or deadly chop (B) for bad
    points. Careful not to step on the glass to
    alert the guards. You may want to use a tranq
    for the set of three guards on the middle bit.
    
    
    (alt) Alley Brawl: e4f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: 3 bouncers
    
    No weapons in this one so it's fair between you
    and them. Kicking is useful here but none of
    them will do too much damage even when trying
    together.
    
    
    Disco Inferno: e4g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Lots of people
    
    Shoot, blast, kill. Lots of people will be
    running in trying to kill you, so keep
    shooting and don't stop looking for new enemies
    coming out from where you don't expect. The
    things around the dance floor can be used as
    cover but be warned they are explosive like
    the barrels you dealt with earlier in the
    garage.
    
    
    Cary in trouble: e4h
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    It's a long way but you have a reasonable
    amount of time to get there so every second
    counts but you can make some slight mistakes
    and get away with them. Keep on the roads
    that are marked on the main map, this will
    help with speed.
    
    
    Finale: Vandal Wrath: e4i
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: 3 Vandals
    
    A couple a guys been up to no good at your
    brothers dojo, there are weapons lying around
    and alot of things to destroy as in the
    previous dojo fight.
    
    
    
    
    Epsiode 5 - e5
    
    
    Tailing suspect cop: e5a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Follow the guy, be warned; look at the map
    for the position of the target indicated
    by the red bleep rather than what's onscreen
    as that can sometimes get confusing. Watch them
    going round corners as well because they will
    slow down while you are not so alert and you'll
    end up bumping into them.
    
    
    Bum Encounter: e5b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: 3 bums
    
    First off fight the two bums who attack you,
    at first they will have you cornered so run
    out and take one at a time. One has a knife
    and one has a broken bottle. They can get
    suprisingly good hits in even, so once you take
    one of them down take the weapon get the other
    one. After the first two have gone down another
    bum will come out and attack you, again don't
    let her corner you.
    
    
    Meeting Rafferty: e5c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Just drive to the destination, pretty straight
    road so just drive along until you get there.
    No upgrades you need to get, but if you want
    the best option would be shooting for the next
    level although it's not vital. Try and keep 
    your car in good nick though as there's a race
    next.
    
    
    Butcher Shop Rush: e5d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    From the moment you start do a peel-out, it's
    a long time and a long way to go so bursts of
    speed on the straights will give you some extra
    time for mistakes. Get there in time. 2:15.
    
    
    On the chopping block: e5e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: 5 guys
    
    This fight is pretty similar to the hobo fight
    except alot harder, the first two guys. Easy
    enough, the second three are harder. Use
    combinations of mostly punches and a few kicks.
    Pick up all weapons to use against them. The
    last guy can be finished off even if you don't
    have much health left by now. He can be taken
    down with alot of fast hits and combos and he
    won't have much of a chance to get punches in.
    
    
    Slaughterhouse: e5f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Lots of people
    
    Killing even more of the butchers, but this
    time you've got your guns against them. A guy
    will immediately appear in front of you so kill
    him fast. The ones who come swinging round on
    the meat hanger will respawn so get rid of
    them and run round quickly to avoid killing
    the same one over again. A long corridor walk
    slowly down this to avoid being overwhelmed
    by enemies. Health pack about half way through
    here. Rest of the level is the same as the first
    half. At the end where the green dot is press
    X to grab someone as a human shield then run
    to the end to complete the mission.
    
    
    Finale: The great escape: e5g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Two cars chasing you
    
    You are in a fish van, fish will fall out the
    back. Not too great for speed, but if you use
    a combination of tight corners and your guns
    then you can swing round the first corner you
    need. If you get really beat up then don't
    bother trying to shoot back as they have quite
    powerful guns which will take a significanly
    large enough amount of health off your car
    to end the mission when you are low.
    
    
    
    
    Episode 6 - e6
    
    
    Off to Wu's place: e6a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Gun upgrades will help in this chapter 
    especially getting as far as hollow point
    ammunition as this will help in taking health
    off quickly, which is nesscessary when
    fighting fire breathing dragons as you will see.
    Once you have done that drive to the green dot
    to end the mission.
    
    
    Up the food chain: e6b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Unsuspecting people
    
    Walk slowly into the first section, chopping
    the first guy. Chop the second guy, walk through
    the empty section into another guy to chop.
    Watch the chair as you move through to the next
    section as this will alert the guard. If you do
    knock the chair or do something that makes a
    noise. Run fast to the safest point or if you
    are close enough, chop the guy. The next part
    has a waiter that walks through. It is not
    neccessary to chop him as you can walk around
    the right to get to the green goal. But watch
    out when taking this shortcut as there are two
    to sneak past.
    
    
    Kitchen Inspection: e6c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: 5 cooks, 1 zombie
    
    Fighting the cooks, the first three of them
    will be easy. A few kicks here, a couple
    of combos there, done. But try to take the 
    next two one at a time, this will make it
    far easier and you need your health for the
    next one. Don't bother picking up the sword
    after killing the second one as the last guy
    who comes out cannot be hurt by normal ways,
    kick the stoves and then lure him over, then
    punch or kick him into the stove. You only
    need to do this about twice and then he's dead.
    
    
    Seeking Ancient Wu: e6d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Lots of people
    
    Lot's of shooting, so be ready with the itchy
    trigger finger. Just keep running. When one
    zombie pops up from the ground you are going
    the wrong way. When you get to two uzis on the
    ground, take them and go round the corner.
    The people there will respawn so keep shooting
    and keep moving forward even when they are
    gone. Green triangle, mission succeeded.
    
    
    (alt) Tunnel Vision: e6e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Zombies
    
    This mission is pretty easy, as long as you
    keep going and moving on. Zombies will pop
    up from the ground and you have to kill them
    fast or be killed by the wall of spikes coming
    up behind you. Use the right thumbstick to
    change the target to the ones ahead of you.
    
    
    Inner Demons: e6f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Demon heads
    
    I hope for your sanity you have the hollow
    point ammunition and good guns. When you start
    three demon heads spin round the ring, your
    target will be focused on the first one.
    Keep shooting at it. After two laps of the ring
    it will turn to face you, don't leap quite yet.
    When you see it move at about a quarter of the
    diameter then leap to the right. When you get
    up immediately start shooting at them again.
    Then there will be four more, same again. Then
    another five. After that a huge head that is
    far more powerful and a bit faster.
    
    
    Die Die my Concubine: e6g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: 2 fire women
    
    Two firey women will come out and into the ring.
    Use only kicks and punches, no grapples as they
    are on fire and this will hurt you. Nowhere near
    as frustrating as the heads. The women will
    transport  when they are in trouble so you must
    move fast to get good combos in.
    
    
    Finale: Nightmare: e6h
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Dragon
    
    Yep, it's a dragon. It will go round right to
    left so follow it with the right thumbstick
    camera. It will make a couple of circles then
    come up as some mist, rear it's head. Here's
    your chance to hurt it by shooting in the mouth.
    You only have about three seconds so make them
    count. Then leap out of the way before it flames
    you. After he has flamed, the dragon will swing
    it's tail on the ground so keep out of the way.
    After a few shots
    
    
    
    
    Episode 7 - e7
    
    
    In the drivers seat: e7a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Just get to the right place, it's not hard to
    do. No reccomendations for upgrades as you
    should have got most of them.
    
    
    On Rafferty's tail: e7b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Rafferty
    
    Same as before, exactly the same. Drive after
    him but not too close.
    
    
    (alt) FBI goons: e7c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: FBI goons
    
    Two guys with tasers, should be easy for you.
    
    
    Escaping the Feds: e7d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: FBI goons
    
    Just like before, there are alot of repeating
    missions on this episode, kinda lets the game
    down.
    
    
    Rafferty's date: e7e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Rafferty
    
    Yet another tailing mission, the same as
    before. Don't get too close and fill up the
    question marks and at the same time don't drop
    behind and lose him.
    
    
    Eavesdropping: e7f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Unsuspecting people
    
    Sneak through the warehouse, take the first guy
    round the corner with ease. Go to the right of the
    crates and tower then wait till the guy with long
    hair comes over to the side and chop him. Watch
    the barrels, and get the next one. Go to the left
    and another walks out. Go to the right path and right
    again. Watch out for this guy because he only has
    two exclamation marks. Up ahead there is another
    one. Around that corner is another guy pacing
    up and down. You shoudl be able to see the marker
    now. Don't run up to it yet as you will alert
    a guard down there. Walk down to the bit where
    it sticks out. Get rid of him. Then into the
    triangle.
    
    
    Finale: Father's Killer: e7g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Rocky's crew
    
    Remember there is a healthpack on the middle
    pillar which you can use. Grab it (B) when you
    are about on a quarter of the way down on health.
    When the guys on the lorry come that's probably
    when you need the healthpack. Also near the end
    there are alot more, there are alot of barrels to
    explode when there are many enemies concentrated
    in one place. After a while people will come up
    onto your platform, so watch out. Keep moving
    as they are fast at close range.
    
    
    
    
    Episode 8 - e8
    
    
    The girlfriend angle: e8a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Rafferty
    
    Yet another tailing mission, for those of you
    who are sick of these. This is the last one.
    
    
    Back to the Gulag: e8b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Keep looking mostly at the mini-map, but avoid
    traffic obviously. Alot of bendy roads here to
    avoid.
    
    
    Rocky's trap: e8c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: 3 Guards/Bouncers
    
    Rocky tricked you, time to get his guards back.
    Take the differently dressed bald one first as
    the other two seem useless without him. Then after
    him the other two should be easy.
    
    
    (alt) Chopper Ambush: e8d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Chopper and two guys on side
    
    In this mission you don't actually have to
    blow up the helicopter just kill the two guys
    on the side and your done.
    
    
    Driving to airport: e8e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Something weird just happened when I did this mission,
    left the car for a second then it just started moving
    by itself. Didn't go to the aeroplane hanger just
    acted like a normal car, stopping at intersections and
    everything. Don't know if this is a bug or what but it
    was strange, if anyone else had this send an email to
    tomtomc@lycos.co.uk
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Just get to the airport, no upgrades, just go.
    
    
    Hangar Showdown: e8f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Commandos
    
    This is probably one of the best missions in
    the game, take hostages if you want but the
    mission is just to get to the other side.
    Shouldn't need to tell you much about this if
    you have come this far.
    
    
    Jetting away: e8g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Rocky's plane
    
    Rocky is trying to get away, go into precision
    mode and take him out, wheels and engines are the
    best places to go for but the most damaging thing
    is just to get lots of shots in. Watch out for
    other planes as these are strong enough
    to take you off the mission.
    
    
    Finale: Puppet Master: e8h
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: General Kim
    
    General Kim is damn tough, first off you will need
    to use the three pipes (the ones that spin) from
    around the side of the ring. One is by the nosecone
    and the others are equally spaced apart. The ring of
    fire will not hurt the general but it will hurt you
    so stay away. Use mostly combos of punches and throw
    a few kicks in with blocks. Don't try jump kicks as
    he blocks them easily. When he is stunned use a 
    grapple if you can.
    
    --------------------------------------------------
    --------------------------------------------------
    Well done you beat the game, now feel free to sit
    back and watch the BEST ENDING.

    Retribution: ae4a
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Drive around getting upgrades, solving street crimes
    and other such things like that until you get bored
    and then you can go to the green triangle.
    
    
    Cat Fight: ae4b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Strippers
    
    The first time I tried this mission I failed
    just because of the sheer number of strippers
    that surround you when you start. The only real
    way to prevent this is to get the fighting upgrades
    from the dojo.
    
    Whe you have them then use grapples (B), to
    knock the whips out of their hands. Be careful
    not to move around the room as the strippers
    will attack you when you get close enough. As
    always punches and kicks will get you through.

    Drive to meet with Lola
    
    
    (alt) Lola Rush: ae4d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Don't bump into the sides and
    other things obviously. There is no place which
    the race will start from. It's random so you can't
    tell but it is always the same place to get to.
    
    
    The Driving Test: ae4d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Just drive there. It's not too hard.
    
    
    Police getaway: ae4e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Police cars
    
    If you have the peel out technique then use that
    when you get the chance. Keep shooting behind you
    at the chasing cops. I use this strategy to do
    these kinds of missions; Drive fast swing round
    a corner and stop just on the pavement, after a
    couple of seconds the cops will come up after
    and go in front of you. At that point they will
    turn and start smashing into things along the
    way, you should also be shooting at them. Rinse,
    repeat until success ensues.
    
    
    (alt) Five laps: ae4f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    It's not too hard, try not to crash into the
    sides too much and keep a tight cling to the
    turns or she will get in front of you. It's
    quite hard to get back if she's too far ahead.
    Sometimes she will just end up stopping for
    no reason which is quite useful really.
    
    
    Busting Lola: ae4g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    Lola uses these cartwheel attacks which are quite
    powerful and you can't block them normal. The
    way to avoid them is just to jump out of the way
    when she starts to come at you dive at exactly
    the right time otherwise she'll turn to your
    new position. Make sure you have the moves like
    'Jumping Monkey' and 'Leaping Tiger'.
    
    
    Finale: Sniper Redux: ae4h
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Sniper
    
    Keep firing constantly, if you keep hitting him
    he won't get a chance to fire as he moves which
    window he is at every time he gets hit. He will
    die quite quickly especially if you have hollow
    point ammunition.
    
    
    (ALT) Episode 5 - ae5

    Get a fast car as there is a hard race mission
    this episode.
    
    
    Chasing Assassins: ae5b
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Truck assassins
    
    Drive fast, peel out if nesscessary to catch up
    with the truck up ahead, get right up to their
    bumper and slow motion precision aim the guys
    with machine guns first and then take care of the
    truck after you are safe from the guns.
    
    
    A race downtown: ae5c
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: NA
    
    I hope you got a fast car earlier as you are
    really going to need it this time. You need to
    get to the bank. Work out the best way for you
    to get off the highway when you first try this,
    as that an be something that slows you down.
    
    
    Bank Standoff: ae5d
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Terrorists
    
    Take cover behind the cars while killing the 
    terrorists two at a time. Take their guns and
    move on. Use slow motion dives to get out from
    behind while still shooting. When your cover
    starts burning move to the next one. When you
    reach the snipers still keep mvoing and use
    the dual sight technique to take them both, or
    hide behind a car and use precision aim. Just
    run into the green arrow to win.
    
    
    Lobby Firefight: ae5e
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: More Terrorists 
    
    Squads of terrorists will come into the room
    trying to kill you. Stay close to a desk, keep
    rolling out but stay away from the monitors on
    the desks as these will explode. After a while
    this guy with a grenade launcher comes out and
    fires grenades from the safety of the bulletproof
    glass. The way to defeat him is to shoot through
    the microphone slot while he's standing there.
    Fire a few shots at him and he'll be killed.
    
    
    (alt) Going Up: ae5f
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Terrorists
    
    Run through shooting everyone, leap out with big
    guns to kill. Use the same technique for each
    section of the level. If you can't do it. Then
    try the next one as well as they are very similar
    except this one has no hostages.
    
    
    Hostage Crisis: ae5g
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: Even more terrorists
    
    This mission gets very annoying and very hard
    if you are deciding to not get any bad points.
    As the terrorists come out using the hostages
    as human shields. It gets annoying when you are
    trying to precision aim at this guy with an
    uzi. So it's far easier to just go through the
    mission doing what I did. Killing everybody.
    You can get the good points back later by replaying
    the stealth missions
    
    
    Finale: Bad Politics: ae5h
    ----------------------------------------------------
    ----------------------------------------------------
    
    Enemy: General Kim
    
    If you have played the other mission where you
    fight General Kim at the end of episode 8. Use
    alot of combos with punches and kicks. Push back
    on the thumbstick to keep away from him as much
    as possible. Only use grapples when he is stunned
    from your combos. He has a good counter move
    where he nuts you one.

    Enemy: Rocky
    
    Get in your car fast and peel out after him. You
    are far faster than Rocky and he doesn't take too
    many turns either so it should be easy enough to

    aim or if you get enough shots in just above the
    numberplate where the aim turns red the car will
    explode.
