1. Shoot the top center of the R in CRISIS at the title screen
(the one with the three game options) twice.
2. Shoot the center of the cross hair above the CRISIS twice.
3. You should be taken to a secret menu where you can choose from
several different modes.
When you choose the normal story mode from the title screen and
can choose either Normal Play or Time Attack, shoot anywhere
off-screen. The words EASY will appear next to the Normal Play mode on
the screen. This gives you five hits in the game instead o f three.
Press Triangle, Circle, Square, or X on a standard controller in
port two to hide or reload instead of using the red gun button.
Because you can reload using on controller two (when using the G-Con
45 peripheral gun), you can give an arcade style feel to the game by
using your toe to press any button, like you would with the arcade
pedal. This will leave both hands free, to aim as precisely as
possible. Note: This is not officially recommended by NAMCO, and only
is used as an alternate method to reloadi ng in the game.
When first shooting the men with the shields in level 1, area 1,
try to shoot the people there faster, so the door does not close. Also
in the same level and area, when shooting near the forklift, shoot the
box to blow it up.
To get extra seconds, shoot the men in orange.
Alternate Moz deaths:
Land the final shot when Moz is on the ground, he will fall over
onto his back. However, if you manage to shoot Moz during the jump
attack, he will die by falling down off the pillar and land on his
Alternate Sherudo Garo shout:
During the battle with Garo in scenes 1 and 2, shoot him when he
is at the bottom right to hear a different tone of voice when he
shouts in pain.
Special Mode Area tasks:
The following information explains what you must do to reach all
the different areas in Special Mode:
Ballroom (Area 2-A):
At the final part in area 1, shoot all the gunmen before the
doors on the nearest lift close. (Shooting the orange men is
optional.) If you succeed, you will take the elevator up to the
Shopping Mall (Area 2-B):
Do the same as to get to the Ballroom, but wait until the
elevator doors close before shooting the final gunman. You will have
to take the stairs instead, which leads to the Shopping Mall.
Swimming Pool (Area 3-A):
At the final part in the Ballroom, get to Kantaris and you will
confront Web Spinner. He is lightning fast, extremely agile, has a
powerful kick attack and high voltage boomerangs of his own design.
Defeat him in under 50 seconds and Kantaris will still be there. She
will escape through a quick secret passage which takes you to the
Arms Factory (Area 3-B):
Defeat Web Spinner in over 50 seconds. Kantaris will have already
escaped elsewhere, thus not opening up the secret passage. The path
you take instead enters into the door of the Arms Factory.
Alternately, shoot the glass that is at the top of the crane in the
Crane Center (the final part of the Shopping Mall). The crane will
explode and blast a hole through the wall. Inspect the hole to find it
leads to the Arms Factory.
Parking Lot (Boss Area 4-C), medium difficulty:
Do not blow up the crane in the Crane Center and you will go to
the other passage that takes you to the Parking Lot. Alternately,
shoot at the gas canisters in the Arms Factory. The explosion is so
large that you have no choice but to take the lift, stra ight down to
the Parking Lot.
Lounge (Boss Area 4-B), hard difficulty:
At the final part of the Swimming Pool, allow two or more orange
men to escape. (You do not get any extra time for shooting those men.)
You then quickly duck out of a manager's/sergeant's sight. You then
stealthily follow him and the others through the d oor and open it to
find you are at the steps leading to the Lounge. Alternately, do not
explode the Gas Canisters in the Arms Factory and you can safely walk
past them over to the door that goes to the Lounge.
Heliport (Boss Area 4-A), hard difficulty:
Do not miss two or more orange men at the final part of the
Swimming Pool. You will not have to duck down, and instead look up to
see Kantaris glaring at you. She is very angry indeed! You take the
steps up to the very top of the Headquarters, where you must prepare
for the final showdown.
