    I. Introduction
    This is my first guide; and I am writing it for many reasons. One being that I
    have used GameFaqs for a few years now, and I feel the need to contribute to
    this growing community. Another being that I recently played Minority Report
    on the GameCube, and it was a lot of fun-yet no guides have been submitted to
    GameFaqs as of yet...what a perfect opportunity!
    In this guide you can expect in-depth coverage for Minority Report from the
    very beginning of the game until the end. Not every secret, trick, or arena
    will be in this guide right away-give me time and give me suggestions! If you
    know of something that is not in this guide, please send me an email and I
    will add it to the guide and credit you for the information. Keep in mind that
    I may have missed something interesting, or there may be alternate methods to
    get through certain part of the game. Thus, many sections will have different
    options-try them all and see which works the best for you.
    At this time the "secrets" and "cash" will be included in each level's
    walkthrough. When I have a more complete listing of them, I will seperate them
    into a short paragraph after each level (in addition to still being right in
    the level walkthrough) so that you can check quickly if you have already beaten
    a level and see: where the item you missed is located/how to grab it.
    A. Contact Information

    The email is more reliable since I check it more often than I go on AIM. But,
    you can set up a time to speak with me on AIM, or catch me there by chance.
    Contact me if you are stuck on a certain section, a part of my guide is unclear
    or not specific enough, a diagram would be helpful for a certain section, a
    part of my guide just sucks, (I WANT CRITICISM) you have something to add to
    my guide, including your own strategies, a code, a secret, etc. or even if you
    just need to flame me. (Please, no ads or porn though.)

    II. Combat Knowledge
    A. Semi-Basic Techniques
    These are are various ways of winning melee combat, using the jetpack
    effectively, and some brief weapon usage. This _IS NOT_ a list of moves taken
    from the instruction manual or a player's guide! I discovered these all
    through experimentation. There may be some things here that are also covered
    in the manual, but I need to make sure you know how to do all of these.
    Anything I may be repeating is definitely covered in greater depth in this
    guide. (Eventually I will probably be adding things that are sent to me by
    readers, however for now these are all directly from me.) This also points
    out some BAD techniques which you should avoid in most situations.
    *IMPORTANT* When I describe an enemy as "down", "stunned", "fallen", or
    "downed" I am talking about when you knock them on the ground, but they are
    STILL ALIVE, and I am _not_ referring to when they have stars around their
    head. I will use the term "seeing stars" to describe an enemy who has stars
    around their head and cannot move for a few seconds, but is standing up.
    | ON FOOT |
    [The Slide Tackle]
    Run towards an opponent and push "L" just as you come into
    kicking range of them. You will crouch, but the momentum causes you to slide.
    About 70% of the time they will have no chance against this. They don't have
    to be far away, but they cannot be in striking range of you when you start
    moving. This is not always an avisable tactic against bosses, and be careful
    not to slide off of a ledge!
    [The Sweep]
    If you are crouching (hold "L") you can sweep an opponent by tapping "B". Take
    this one step further by sweeping unexpectedly, and using it against a cluster
    of guys. They will all go down if you are careful. You should be close enough
    to strike them with a punch, and you should not crouch down until they are
    right on top of you. Whats more, this technique can be used to hit 'stunned'
    enemies lying on the ground!
    [The Spin Kick]
    A very effective technique, the Spin Kick can be a little tough to execute.
    Turn the control stick at least 90 degrees rapidly and tap "B". The 'flick' of
    the control stick is the hard part, of course. The direction you rotate in and
    the speed you rotate at can affect the kick, so be careful. If executed
    properly, the kick will cause you to spin, and should bring anyone you hit
    (who does not block) straight to the ground. Can take down 3 enemies or more
    at once. Not a slow technique, but watch out for being sweeped during the
    second you are vulnerable.
    [The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Groin Punch]
    Terrible move as far as damage is concerned; and it fails to bring an opponent
    down. It involves crouching by holding "L" and tapping the "A" button. This
    can be used in a few akward situations, when you are crouching or miss a
    'Slide Tackle' and do not have time to execute a decent technique; because it
    is fairly fast.
    [The Stay-Down Stomp Kicks]
    This kick is probably covered in the manual, but I need to make sure you know
    how to use these two correctly. When an enemy is down, stand over them and tap
    either "A" or "B" to kick them while they are down. Do it fast, and they
    cannot recover before you defeat them. The "B" variant does more damage, and
    keeps them in one place. The "A" variant is quicker but does less damage and
    moves them each time you hit them, so you have to keep "following" their body
    to keep hitting them. "B" works better overall, use it more. This works best
    if you are only fighting one enemy, or you have knocked every opponent down
    (and they are still stunned.)
    For example, a well-timed spin-kick can easily put two or three opponents on
    the floor. Once they are down, start stomping the closest or most dangerous
    one with "B"; you'll have him in a coma before any of his fallen comrades can
    recover to help him. The advantage to this over 'Lunatic Leap' on a fallen
    enemy is when someone tries to attack you. If you are stomping someone and
    another adversary approaches you, you will often switch to a regular kick
    automatically! Make sure you turn to face the new enemy, and take him down
    fast because your previous victim will recover soon.
    If someone happens to fall to the ground near the edge of a steep platform,
    use the "A" version to kick him right off!
    [The Lunatic Leap]
    Ah, perhaps my favorite...Jump by pushing the "Y" button, and press "B" to
    punch as you start to come back down. If you can land on top of an enemy, this
    will stun him instantly. It is fairly fast and tough to block because you are
    coming from an odd angle. Works great against precrime officers and even a
    robot if needed. It has a decent 'splash damage' meaning it will hit any other
    opponents who are close to your victim. Anyone affected will hit the ground;
    there is very little variation in power for this technique.
    [The Lunatic Leap Evolved]
    Best when enemies are running towards you, or have you surrounded. Either use
    it to jump out of a circle they have formed around you-conveniently taking out
    one or two of them in the process- or use it to charge oncoming officers.
    Then proceed to use the 'Lunatic Leap' over a stunned officer on the ground!
    This is even more effective than stomp kicking them, as it makes it virtually
    impossible for other enemies to intervene. If anyone tries to attack you while
    you are leap-punching the downed opponent, they will eat your fist about 85%
    of the time. However, they will occasionally get you anyways-just be careful.
    Also, watch out for enemies with guns, who will try to shoot you while you
    are attacking a fallen enemy.
    [The Wake-Up Grapple]
    If you knock an enemy down, you can pick them up the same way you would grab
    them if they were standing: by pressing "X" while standing right beside them.
    So, if you happen to knock someone down, feel free to pick them up with this
    command. You can then tap "A" or "B" to hit them while you hold them tightly.
    Or, tap "X" while tilting the control stick to throw them in any direction.
    <(^-^)> If you happen to be fighting near windows, or and edge, its easy to
    pick up a fallen enemy and, well, introduce him to gravity. You will throw
    an enemy farther than you probably expected; so you do _not_ need to be right
    on the edge to do this. Even if they are defeated, why not pick them up and
    toss them while their body is still there? ;)
    [The Rag Doll]
    As its name implies, this technique is simple: pick up an enemy and throw them
    around. It causes damage to them, stuns them long enough for you to pick them
    up and do it again, and relieves stress! Again, simply press "X" while you
    are standing OVER a fallen opponent, or NEXT TO an opponent who is seeing
    stars. Then press "X" to toss them-at a wall works best if windows are not
    available-but keep in mind the old adage of killing two birds with one stone.
    If there are other enemies around, take one of them to the ground and throw
    him at the others! This knocks the others down, and hurts them slightly.
    1.) If an enemy is defeated, his body will disappear after a short period of
    nothing happening to him. If you keep hitting him, or pick him up, he will not
    vanish. So, after clearing out a room, you can pick up a body and take it into
    the next room. Very useful for throwing it at a group.
    2.) Some enemies will give up items upon being 'defeated'. Thus, if you finish
    them off in such a manner as to make their body impossible to reach, how can
    you retrieve the item? If you HAVE to throw enemies off of a ledge to defeat
    them, go ahead. But be forewarned that putting them in a bad place could cost
    you some cash, a health kit, or a weapon.
     If you are just doing it for fun, wait until the item surfaces, THEN throw
     the body off the building or through the window. Otherwise, try to toss them
     far but into an accessible area.
    | Jetpack |
    First of all, make damn sure you practice this a little bit. It can be tough
    to learn it in a in-the-field-oh-my-god-I-am-dying situation. Practice it
    using the in-game tutorial, it does not take long.
    [The Rising Gun]
    Simple: Fly straight up or up at a slight angle while locked onto an enemy (of
    course you need to keep tapping "A" or "B" to shoot at them!) You will need to
    fly back down because after a short period you will be too high and far to aim
    accurately-don't waste your ammunition.
    [The Battering Ram]
    Get some altitude first by flying upwards fast. Then, swoop down and plow
    straight into an enemy-you will cause damage and send them reeling. In many
    situations, you will be fighting precrime officers on ledges...Put two and two
    together here-knock them OFF! Even a slight graze will be sufficient to remove
    them from their platform, and either they hit the ground and vanish or they
    take significant damage. In the latter of theses cases, you can either spray
    them down with 'cover' fire or land and beat them senseless. To land, tap "Y"
    and start attacking them immediately. Stomping works best because their health
    should be very low already. If they are up, I reccomend kicking over punching
    in this case-one kick should take them out easily, but punching gives them a
    slightly better chance to hit you back.
    Time is important; the longer you are on the ground the more likely you are to
    be shot at and/or ambushed by nearby precrime officers. Finish the job and get
    back in the sky by tapping "Y" twice to turn the Jetpack back on.
    [The Searing Burns]
    Arggghhh...I am only mentioning this because it is a rapidly spreading rumor.
    YOU _CANNOT_ burn an enemy with the back of your Jetpack. As realistic as it
    may seem, do not waste your time. I have attempted this many, many times and
    simply put: it's a load of crap. Sorry guys, I admit it would be fun if it
    was possible to do this. But it isn't.
    B. Enemies and Hazards
    Please note that these groups are used to seperate enemies, and are by no
    means sanctioned by the game's creators. I am simply categorizing them myself
    to help you learn about each's weaknesses and strengths.
    Enemies can be sorted into a few main groups:
    Precrime, Robots, MallCops, Swat Teams, Citizens, Bosses, and Misc.
    1.) Precrime- Your main enemy. Several different types of P.C. Officers. They
    can be easily distinguished by the colored shoulder pads they wear:
    Red: Ranged Officer. Carries a weapon, generally the pulse rifle or machine
    gun; not common in large groups, rarely by themselves. They are terrible at
    close combat, and may attempt to hit you with the butt of their weapon.
    (rare but possible, and can stun you). Sometimes they have a rarer weapon.
    Yellow: Spyder Officer. Nasty if given time. Launches spyder bots at you,
    which leap onto you and sting you with electricity. More potent varities self-
    destruct, and can cause SERIOUS damage. The longer these officers have, the
    more spyders chasing you, so take him out early. Use the Lunatic Leap on the
    spyders, even if they are stuck to your body the impact knocks them off.
    Least Common officers.
    Greem: ...Gag Squad?! Seriously, these are basic fighters who seem to be
    average at melee combat, and carry Electric Night-sticks. They will try to
    gag you with the night stick (I'm serious) which will paralyze you briefly
    while you vomit. Not too tough, however. Common.
    Blue: Unarmed Combat Squad. Seem to be strongest physically, and are usually
    larger in size than green officers. Their fighting style varies slightly from
    green officers, and they are harder to fool with combos. They jump faster and
    thus are harder to sweep. Still not too tough, however, and fairly common.
    Paired with green officers often. Harmful if they manage to set up a combo
    against you, so try to get out of the way if you see a special move coming.
    2.) Robots-A few varieties, but mainly the standard anti-personnel bots.
    Standard Bot: Melee combat is futile in 9 out of 10 situations with a bot.
    They will lash out with one arm and throw you to the ground if you stay close
    to them for a few seconds. Carry weapons in their arms, commonly machine guns.
    Seemingly impossible to sweep or knock down. (please let me know if anyone can
    bring robots to the ground before the robot is dead.) Shotgun works great,
    Machine Gun is nice too-it usually keeps them from being able to shoot you
    while you pummel them with rounds. Requires average 2 shots from shotgun.
    Spyder Bot: Small, weak, easily defeated. Hit them or lunatic leap on top of
    them to kill them/knock them off you. A Spin Kick knocks them off as well.
    Explosive Spyder: Red variant of 'Spyder Bot'. Same advice for fighting them,
    but instead of electrically stinging you, these ones self-destruct. If you
    kill them before they can explode, they _will not_ go off. So, charge them
    with a flurry of Lunatic Leaps or fake them out and run away when they go off.
    3.) MallCops- Two varieties, neither is armed in my experience. Show up in a
    few levels. In some ways, these can be far tougher to fight than P.C.!
    Fat: Slow and not too hard to kill. If you stay close he will grab you and
    do a reverse bearhug (i.e. crack your back very hard from the front) this is
    bad and hurts you quite a bit. Try slide tackling them if you have room.
    Also does a chopping attack with both hands; this is the equivalent of your
    lunatic leap! It will drop you like a sack of bricks, but you can see it
    coming so try to move.
    Skinny: DO NOT KICK THEM TWICE IN A ROW. They will grab your leg on the second
    kick and throw you to the ground. It hurts you and leaves you wide open to
    fat cop chops and grabs. Mixing up kicks and punches works, so does leaping.
    Another possibility is the elbow smash if you have bought it. Machine Gun is
    also effective against these guys if you can spare the ammunition.
    4.) Swat Teams-All the same, so far. Black, easily recognizeable clothing,
    night-stick, and giant bulletproof shield. Weak but can get annoying. Once you
    get an opening, they are basically defeated. Try hitting them _right_ after
    they lunge at you with the night-stick, or shooting them from the side. The
    shield will block bullets from straight on; but grenades CAN be lobbed over
    but what a waste, do not bother. You can simply run away from them,
    or slide tackle. Lunatic Leap works here too, but be careful not to miss and
    land right in front of them, as you will probably get clobbered a few times.
    If a citizen throws a molative cocktail, these guys are GONE. May as well run
    around stomping them before they recover, or you can keep moving if there is
    no need to eliminate the Swat Team in the particular situation.
    5.) Citizens-PATHETIC! Commonly carry crude clubs, very weak, recognizeable by
    their language (obscenities and discussing anti-government). No need to fight
    them all the time however. There are sort of different classes of citizens.
    If you see a crowd of them don't worry; think "party time!" because they are
    not very hard to intimidate and/or defeat.
    Rioters: Dressed casually, carryiing clubs, lighting fires, beating up Swat
    Team Officers (or, getting beaten by swat team officers) Throw nasty molative
    cocktails which explode and light fires. You will see them holding a bottle
    right before they throw a cocktail, so run like hell and jump. Rioters will
    attack you for no reason, and beating the crap out of one of them does NOT
    turn them all against you. They will randomly? fight you or leave you alone.
    Neutrals: Dressed more formally, you encounter them in the bar and at the
    subway station among other places. Will not fight unless attacked; however if
    you attack one of them they all turn against you. Weak, but can hurt you if
    you let a mob of them pound your back while you fight P.C. Officers. No sense
    in fighting them unless you have to, they never seem to drop items.
    6.) Bosses-Varied, and some come back. (Agent Mosely returns after you fill
    him with holes, don't even ask.) Often there are multiple ways to beat them,
    and sometimes they may _seem_ hard, but there could be a secret which makes
    them ridiculously easy to conquer. (Going back to Mosely, who may seem tough
    the second time around, but has a pattern which can be exploited to give you a
    major advantage. More on that later, in the walkthrough ;)
    7.) Misc.-These include odd enemies or hazards which may not even be able to
    move, or some odd thing you only have to deal with once or twice.
    Cooks/Assistants: Found in first stage, weak as hell and some attack with
    rolling pins. These can do a little damage; so dodge their swing and counter
    with a swift punch or sweep.
    Construction Workers: Not too difficult, but they gang up on you and cause
    damage. Use your spin kick to its full potential, and don't fight them all.
    Just clear out the ones you have to.
    Air Conditioning: When you crawl into the vents, be warned: frigid air will
    blast you back, and could know you into a dangerous area with robots and P.C.
    Officers. Time your movements.
    Fire 'Streams': Fire that shoots out from leaking gas tanks. Painful. Some
    are constant flowing streams of fire, which are either jumped over or not
    passable. Others alternate on and off, so watch their pattern and then run or
    jump through while they are off.
    Draining Sewage: The torrents of green liquid which pour down in the sewer
    level can cause damage and stun you if you aren't careful. Also, they have a
    nasty habit of knocking you into the drain and causing you to be sucking into
    the whirlpool area-instant death. Avoid them, and know that you can fly in
    between them without getting hit if you are careful. Shown below.

    III. Walkthrough
    Each level will have a list at the top showing how many secrets and how much
    cash my method will get you by the end of the level. I have not found _every_
    secret, so if you find one I don't have in here, PLEASE tell me!
    /37 Seconds\
    Secrets:  6/6
    Cash:     $250/$250
    Brief Cutscene shows your P.C. team flying in a hovership to the scene of a
    crime-to-be. You show up just before the suspect can stab his victim, and he
    promptly flees deeper into the building.
    First, stay where you are and fight the two men who run up to you. They are
    very easy, a few kicks and a sweep should finish the job. (Stomp them if
    necessary.) Use your lunatic leap on the desk behind you, to smash the three
    computers and uncover $50. Nothing else in this room is of interest; go
    forward and take a right. As you proceed down this hallway, you will be
    attacked again, only this time they have rolling pins (Oh God No, what will
    we ever do) After you beat them, move forward and go through the open door
    Short Cutscene, then guys charge you. Don't actually run into the room ahead,
    let them come to you. CTH Groin Punch actually works well against this group.
    Now, go through the door (the one that activated that cutscene a second ago)
    and take an immediate left. You should run straight into a wall with several
    light blue doors. Open each by standing near the 'Panel' on the door and
    pressing "X". Each door is a closet with health or money inside. One of them
    is empty.
    WARNING: You may run into a couple of enemies (no big challenge)
    near these doors, so don't get caught inside a closet and allow them to hit
    you in the back!
    You may have to close some of them to open the others, as the
    sliding doors can block each other from opening. Now, face the wall with these
    light blue closet doors again. Turn 180 degrees so you are facing the exact
    opposite direction, and walk forward until you are right against the wall. To
    your left should be a staircase, to your right should be a sink. Jump up on
    the sink and face the pot and pan right beside it. Now tap "Y" again to jump
    and you should automatically grab the ledge above you. May take a few tries.
    Once you grab the ledge, press "Y" again to pull yourself up. Grab the health
    and money, but do not jump off-you will take some damage. Instead, stand
    facing the edge where you came up, and slowly walk forward until you stagger
    slightly. You will fall after a second, but you'll automatically grab the edge
    again this way. Hold down on the control stick and tap "Y" to drop safely from
    Now, go up the stairs mentioned earlier. (Across from the sink you just
    jumped up onto) and fight the men waiting for you at the top of the staircase.
    Do not go around the corner yet. On your right is a locked door, to your left
    is a space in the wall, and a short railing. Jump over the railing to reach
    the $50 on the other side of the railing. Jump back over it, and go around
    the corner. Keep moving, and go around another corner. Now, walk right up to
    the ledge and tap "Y" to grab it, and tap it again to climb up. Use "X" to
    open the door ahead.
    Ok, now you need to notice the railing which is along the face of the
    building, and bridges the platform you are standing on with the one you need
    to reach. Stand facing the rail, and press jump to grab it. Move to the right
    to swing arm-over-arm along the rail.
    <(^-^)> The Invisible Man: Before you grab the rail, move around on the tiny
    platform you are standing on. When you walk into the far-right portion of it,
    your character will vanish. When you walk back into the center, he re-appears.
    I have only tested this a few times (doing more important things for now!)
    so I am not sure how consistent this glitch is, but it has worked every time
    for me. <!> Update: This bug only works if you walk onto the first platform,
    walk back into the building, and _then_ walk back out on the platform.
    Now that you are on the second platform, kick to break the glass so you can
    move forward. Proceed down the short hallway and through the small double
    doors into the freezer where you will fight a 'Boss', though he is hardly
    worth that title...The Boss is "Andre Serena"; the criminal-to-be whom you
    just prevented from stabbing someone to death a moment ago. Please note that
    there are doors in the corners of the room, and you should open all of them
    ("X" at the panel) before you kill Andre. Reason being that while most of them
    contain health kits, one has cash in it. Andre is easy, just take him down
    with a sweep, spin kick, or L.L. and stomp him into submission.
    Short Cut Scene shows Andre being captured.
    /Suspect: Nikki Jameson\
    Secrets:  4/5
    Cash:     $200/$250
    Cut scenes shows F.B.I arriving to inspect PreCrime operations, and two agents
    (Agent Mosely and Agent Nara) are placed to watch you and report on P.C.
    activities and efficiency to ensure it is being run correctly (and is worth
    continuing.) Agent Witwer is in charge, and instructs you to take Mosely with
    you to capture Nikki after the telepaths forsee her murdering someone.
    At the very beginning, walk forward to where there are to rows of chairs
    against the wall. Stand in front of the right-side chairs and jump to grab a
    ledge. Pull yourself up, and jump again to grab $50. Carefully go back down,
    and head up the staircase to the left of the room. Turn right at top of stairs
    and head through the double doors. Kill the robot by firing at him with your
    plasma rifle. Depending on whether Barry hits it, you may be able to kill it
    in 4 or 5 shots. Once it is down, look to the left. You should see a window,
    and a locked door. Kick the window and Jump through to grab a shotgun and $50.
    On the left wall there is a switch which opens the door so you can leave (or
    you can just jump back through the window.)
    Continue into the open chamber, and press the round switch by the closed door.
    Blue mist floods in to the room but relax, it does not harm you. The door will
    open in a few seconds, revealing a room with 3 robots in it. Blast them fast
    with either weapon, but be sure to stop firing at one bot when its health
    meter disappears. Otherwise you waste ammo on a dead bot...Once they are all
    down, stand in the middle of the room and face towards the section that juts
    out to the left. (if you face away from the door you came in through) In that
    section there are a few door-less lockers, one of which contains a health kit.
    Proceed through the door marked "exit" in red. A short cut scene shows Nikki
    and warns of gas. Oh My God Please No. Please No.
    Kill the two bots facing you (if you run out of ammo, jump around like crazy
    and try not to get shot while Barry finishes the robots off for you.) One of
    them drops ammunition, grab it. If you are not quite fast, three more robots
    will trudge up a staircase near the door you came in. If you _are_ very fast,
    you can get down the stairs and fight them down there. No real difference
    though. Kill them fast, and try not to let them bum rush Barry. He should be
    ok, though, unless you used him as a shield earlier or hesitated to kill bots.
    Alright. Stand so you are at the bottom of the stairs, with your back facing
    them. There should be bubbles in yellow liquid in front of you. Turn right and
    go forward. Take the first left, and go forward a bit more. Now look to your
    left, and you should see a health kit and a new staircase. Grab the health if
    you need it, or leave it if you don't. (up ahead you may fall a few times, so
    conserve this one unless you need it now.) Go up the stairs, turn right,
    proceed forward and push the switch on the vertical pipes. A message tells you
    the gas is off.
    <-X-> Turn so your back is to the switch, and walk forward about
    half-way to the stairs. On your left there should be a railing, and a pipe
    that runs from the platform you are standing on to a large cylindrical gas
    tank in the middle of the room. Jump carefully over the gate, and then up onto
    the pipe. Walk slowly across, and get off on the right side. Now, there should
    be another, large pipe leading to a visible $50. See Diagram below. Its a bit
    harder than you would think, trust me...be careful.

       switch-----> |       Platform               /
    Now, you need to get back to where you entered this room. After pushing the
    switch, head back down the stairs, grab the health if you need it now and did
    not get it before. Go left at bottom of stairs, then right twice and forward a
    bit should take you back to the first staircase. Go up, and left. Now the door
    to the ?control room? where Nikki was is open. Walk right through, and head
    down the catwalk on the other side slowly. A grenade is hurled over and
    ignites gas, so do not run down the catwalk or you could get toasted. Now a
    short fire maze! Go forward from the catwalk stairs until you are right in
    front of the huge fire wall. Go right and jump over the small fire stream, and
    continue forward. Take a right and there will be 2 fire streams, which will
    go on and off repeatedly. Watch the timing for a few seconds, then run through
    when you are ready. (and do it while the fire is off of course!) Forward a
    bit, then there will be two more streams on your right; they are the same as
    the ones you just went past. Wait, then run. This time go forward a little and
    take a left. There will be a continuos stream on the ground, and two streams
    which simultaneously turn on and off. Wait till the two are off, then take a
    running leap over the low one and through the two middle ones before they come
    back on. You should be facing a wall, with a low stream of fire to your left,
    and a wall of fire to your right (well, a few streams that do not go off at
    all yet.) Go left and jump the stream. Then push the switch ahead to shut off
    all the streams. Face the switch, and turn around 180 degrees. Walk forward,
    and slightly to the left where there should be a space between pipes and the
    wall. Squeeze by to claim $25, a health kit, and a shotgun.
    Almost there...backtrack all the way to the catwalk now that the fire is off.
    Then, face the opposite direction of the catwalk, and head straight forward.
    Where there was a huge wall of fire before, go straight instead of right. Then
    when you can go no farther forward, turn right and kill the bot. Go around the
    corner ahead and kill another bot. You should see stairs ahead and to the
    left, but first run to the very right side of the stairs. 'Under' the stairs
    there is a small niche with $25 in it. Now go back around the stairs and head
    up them. At the top there is a small chamber with a bot in it, toast him. Push
    the round button by the door, blue mist again, and the door opens in a few
    seconds. When it does, go into the room and kill 3 bots. If you line them up
    so one is right behind the other, the shotgun can kill them both in one shot.
    Hard but very cool to do. Also conserves ammo, so a good habit. Proceed to go
    around the counters in this room (or jump them, who cares) but realize there
    is a health kit on the floor after the first corner if you need it.
    Proceed into the chamber, push the button and blue mist sprays again. When the
    door opens, there are two bots waiting for you. Dispatch them quickly. Proceed
    and you will get a short cut scene of Nikki throwing a grenade right in your
    face...luckily Barry pulls you out of the way just in time.
    /Suspect: John Anderton\
    Oh, my. After getting reemed by the F.B.I. Agent Witwer for giving Mosely
    door-guarding duty, John is forseen to murder someone by the PreCrime
    TelePaths! Your good friend Barry covers for you as best he can, and urges you
    to hurry home.
    /Everybody Runs\
    Secrets:  2/2
    Cash:     $250/$250
    And now the mission responsible for this game's namesake. You must escape from
    PreCrime so that you might have a chance to prove your innocence...
    You start by the doors labeled 'Temple'. This is the room where the TelePaths
    are kept, as you will learn later on in the game. Anyways, start by moving
    left and up the curving path. Keep going straight along that path until you
    reach the armory, where you can pick up a concussion rifle and two health kits
    (of course you don't need them yet, save them for later in case you screw up.)
    Turn around and go back the way you came; proceed down the ramp past the
    'Temple' door where you started, and keep winding down the ramp until you can
    make a left turn. Do so, and head straight for the exit sign. Three P.C.
    Officers charge you, usually all greens. Beat them senseless and then search
    the first floor desk platforms for a $25. (This level is too similar for me to
    really explain how to get this, just check all the areas with tri-desk setups
    on the lower portion of the level.) Then, go back to the exit door and to the
    right of it you should see the wall curve, allowing you to jump onto it and
    reach a ramp which is otherwise inaccesible because it is behind a locked
    door. This ramp will allow you to reach the higher platforms with tri-desk
    setups. One of them right by the ramp has $100 on it-thats the only one of any
    importance. After you get it, practice your fighting skills and combos on some
    of the weaklings running amok. There seems to be an endless flow of them, they
    will fight but retreat easily, and take little damage to defeat. Thus, they
    will serve well as practice dummies to help you master your spin kicks and
    throws in particular.
    When you are ready to move on, move to the exit door again, but this time walk
    up to it so it gives you a message about needing an override. Head back to the
    Temple doors where you started, and from there go the same way you went to the
    armory-but instead of continuing straight, go left into the ready room. You
    will fight random P.C. Officers along the way, usually this includes a Spyder
    Officer and a Ranged Officer with Blue and Green bodyguards so be prepared.
    One of them (generally the Spyder Officer) will drop the keycard you need now.
    Grab health from the armory if you need to, assuming there is some left. In
    the ready room, grab the gun towards the back left, and then step into one of
    the elevator 'wells' to go up one level.
    Ambushed! As soon as you step out of the elevator well, a few P.C. Officers
    will emerge to fight you. Careful, the combination is random but usually
    includes a Ranged Officer or two. Grab the cash after you finish battling, and
    go back down using an elevator. Return to the exit (numerous P.C. Officers
    along the way, however) to finish the level.
    /Bear's Cave\
    Finally...after a short cutscene in which Mosely and Anderton discuss who is
    going to get their ass kicked, you are given a chance to put your money where
    your mouth is. Put your fist where Mosely's mouth is.
    Boss Battle: Mosely is tougher than PreCrime, and has far more advanced combos
    than you, but you are allowed to use weapons and he is not. (This is never
    stated, but it is true nonetheless. He won't draw a weapon under any
    circumstance.) 95% of your spin kicks he will dodge, and occasionally he will
    even counter them. Sweeping him is also very tough, along with slide tackles.
    In other words, you have to pound him into submission with your fists, and
    fire on him when he staggers back. Mosely cheats in a way, because PreCrime
    Offciers appear in rounds to help him. However, he attacks you far less while
    the P.C. Officers are in the area. The L.L. can help you here, but the layout
    of the level makes it a bit of a challenge.
    Best, Simplest Tactic: Fight him carefully for the first minute or so, using
    short combos like "A"-"B"-"A", a few L.L.'s, and try to dodge his fancy kicks
    and counter with one punch to the back of his head. Once P.C. shows up, take
    care of them, and you may or may not get a weapon. Either way, if you have the
    shotgun by the time you have defeated the first group of PreCrime (from a
    previous level, _or_ from defeating one of the P.C. Officers) use it now. Let
    Agent Mosely come close, and dodge one of his techniques-then charge him and
    start blasting. Chances are you can tear him apart before the P.C. wave can
    even touch you. Finish off any Officers in the area and you win. (once Mosely
    loses, the waves of P.C. stop coming, and once you beat all enemies in the
    area you are victorious.)
    /Escape From PreCrime\
    A brief cutscene shows John grab a Jetpack and fly away, but P.C. Officers try
    desperately to bring him down with cover fire.
    /Jetpack Escape\
    Secrets:  2/2
    Cash:     $250/$250
    You start in what appears to be a subway station. First, deal with the Ranged
    Officers; you can do lethal mafia-style "drive-by's" by flying past and
    picking them off. Or, you can ram into them each a few times. This is a better
    idea, as you need ammunition later on. You could land and fight them, but its
    harder and far more dangerous-you are likely to get torn apart by cover fire
    from Officers who are scattered about the area, or hit from behind.
    Once the Officers are cleared out of the main starting section, notice the
    metal gates, one is at the bottom of each wall. Land by tapping "Y", and kick
    the gates a few times each to open them. This way you can collect the cash
    inside 3 gates, and the machine gun in the fourth. After you have opened and
    looted all four gates, stand in the middle of the room. Notice that the room
    is a rectangle, and the two 'longer' walls each have 2 round logos on them.
    One wall has green logos, the other has blue. You want blue, so face that wall
    and go up the left staircase. Standing at the top of the stairs, with your
    back to the stairs, turn right and walk forward into the grey tunnel. The door
    in the tunnel has a flashing switch; press it to move on.
    IMPORTANT: The next section involves travelling through the tunnel in sections
    divided by doors like this one. Each section has P.C. Officers in it and it is
    a waste of time to keep fighting them. When you push the first switch right
    here, turn on your jetpack and fly through the tunnel. All of the doors opened
    and they won't close until the first one does; then they close in order. So,
    its much quicker and more efficient (not to mention WAY easier) to soar
    through the entire length of the tunnel, slipping through the doors just
    before they can close. After about 4 doors, you will emerge in a new subway
    To the right and ahead slightly is an open area, as you fly into it
    several P.C. Officers come running out. Kill them all, giving top priority to
    the red ones-they can hit you while you're flying. Again, try to ram these
    enemies as opposed to wasting valuable ammunition. Officers will run down from
    the upper section, but do not head over there. Instead, stay in the lower area
    and let them come to you. When they are all finished (fly up and look around
    quick to be sure) smash the gates on this lower level. There are two gates
    with $25 each behind them, and one with a health kit. Now, go up one of the
    stair cases, and explore the corridor with yellow logos for a health and a gun
    (I think there is a gun, my notes are a little confusing about this part.)
    Then go into the red logo section, and _fly_ through the winding tunnel. You
    will come out in an open area with some buildings; the tunnel goes along a
    ledge above the ground. Turn to the left and there is another ledge across
    from where you are now, with teo guys on it. Fly over and ram them, then land
    on the platform to finish them off. Then, swoop down and ram through the guys
    on the ground in the middle of this area. You could land and fight them, but
    again ramming=safer and easier. If you fly straight up, you will see there is
    another ledge slightly above the red logo tunnel you came through, with two
    health kits on it. When the P.C. Officers are all taken care of, proceed along
    the ground to the only place you can continue through-there's a picture of a
    red car rotating on the wall where you need to go. A Red P.C. Officer tries to
    ambush you, be careful.
    Hopefully you can see three glass umbrellas. Stand in the middle of them, and
    fly straight up as far as you can (the sky will eventually limit you from
    gaining altitude) and look for a platform ahead with cash, a weapon, and
    health on it. This is a setup, basically, courtesy of PreCrime. Fly around
    half-way to it, and look to your right. There is a bulding with a balcony
    built into it, and two red P.C. Officers are waiting there. (for you you to be
    lured to the platform) Swoop over and take care of them, but be careful not to
    throw them off the edge. One of them drops $25, and if you throw him off it
    becomes difficult to locate the cash sometimes. Now you have to take care of
    (3 guesses) some P.C. Officers on the ground. If you have bullets, use some.
    Do not use up all of your ammunition however. Ram someone, fly upwards at an
    angle, then dart down and ram someone else. This makes you hard to hit and,
    with a little luck, one ramming attack can hurt 3 or 4 P.C. Officers all in
    one run.
    When they are defeated, stand in the midst of the six 'glass umbrellas'. Then,
    orient yourself to be facing a wall with 2 light blue advertisement signs
    on it, a short ways in front of you. Up ahead and to the right is a glass wall
    with one 'panel' of glass missing (a door, sort of.) Go here, and to your
    right you will find $25. Turn to your left, and you will see another glass
    wall, with items behind it. This time, break a panel by kicking it to get to
    the items behind. There are two health kits and a machine gun.
    IMPORTANT: At this point you probably have at least $900. (If you have
    followed this guide strictly $950.) Press start, and select 'Black Market',
    then select 'Permanent Upgrades' and buy the health increase. This will make
    your health bar lengthen a fair amount, which helps immensely in the stages to
    come. You do not _have_ to do this, but I highly reccomend dropping the cash
    on it now. If there is still a health kit on the ground, grab it now that your
    health maximum is higher. Turn around and walk straight out the open panel in
    the first glass wall. Then continue forward and go up the two flights of
    stairs, to the platform. There is another subway tunnel here; walk into it to
    finish the stage!
    /Mall City Subway\
    Another brief cut scene shows John uncerrimoniously toss the jetpack aside,
    and walk into Mall City. Here a computer identifies him as John Anderton, and
    a nearby Security Bot confronts him. Basic Idea: The shit has hit the fan...
    /Welcome To Mall City Mr. Anderton\ *incomplete*
    First of all, you will need to dispatch the bot standing 3 feet in front of
    you; preferably _before_ he fills you with holes. Run to the right, around the
    pillar until you can see him. Lock on and unload the machine gun into him. (If
    you happen to have shotgun ammo that works even better) Now, you need to go in
    the direction you were facing when the stage started, and up the stairs to
    where the two fat MallCops are waiting. Don't bother smashing the vending
    machines peppered through the area, they do not hold any secrets in this
    Fight the two cops, but watch out for their attacks. These enemies are fairly
    comparable to P.C. Officers, but their attacks are quite different. The main
    things to watch out for from fat MallCops are getting grabbed (so don't stay
    close for long), being charged at, and their lethal but slow overhand attack.
    (When they bring both hands over their head, and hammer them down on you.)
    After the fat MallCops are gone, break the glass door or window and fight the
    MallCop/s inside of the small black room. There is a switch, which will open
    the 'security doors' and allow you to continue forward.
