i think only two achievements will be super hard, the 50 star combo and the complete the game with hard boiled difficluty. im quite happy with all the other achievements

08-24-2007, 10:35 AM
yeah i think you are right UGK. the demo wasen't so hard so the other achievements should'nt be a problem. hope to see some of you online soon when this game hits the stores

the achievements haven't bee nthought through that well, theyre just like any other games' ones. I would've liked to have seen unique and original ones like precision aim to shoot say the gun out of enemies hands or a double kill. It seems that they will be an easy but sometimes time consuming 1000 like shadowrun

this should be really fun to get these acheivements not looking forward to playing it on hard boiled but hey! when you want 1000/1000 you got to make some sacrifice's even if it means smashing your head against the wall.

I like the "cause 75.000.000$ of damage" achievement.... That means the game keeps track of how much damage you make, I'm definitely going to break a lot of stuff, that sounds fun. I hope the multiplayer is solid, because the campaign seems very short, I would be surprised if it lasts more than 6-7 hours. On the other hand, the replay value should be high if the full game plays like the demo, so i don't know.

The achievements look easy but fun. I would have unlocked a handful already by playing the demo. The precision aim one will be fun, though I think they should have included Penny Arcade's idea of a "Testikill" achievement.

You'll get them, but hard boiled isn't unlocked until you finish the game at least once...

What about the paper cranes? Do we need to get 250 in one playthrough (meaning finding every single one) or is it just a total from multiple plays?

Big ArrickSon
09-03-2007, 09:28 PM
everything on single from what i have seen is a total over multiple plays, the cranes, killing people certain ways... i forgot to do the swinging one, reloaded the tea house part and swung around about ten kills boom it unlocked. Im having a hard time getting thru this game on hard or hard boiled. the later acts get pretty rough with all the enemies on the screen.

Yeah, I'm trying hard boiled too and getting my *** kicked...

I'm currently in the museum level, where enemies start dropping from the ceiling with ropes... I have no idea on how to pass this room, I get killed in a matter of seconds there :mad:

Big ArrickSon
09-04-2007, 01:46 PM
ya it seems to be extremely difficult because of the snipers, they can take you out in like one or two shots. i have found that on alot of the levels you can funnel them through corridors, enemies will come to you if you can find a good hiding spot. just dont let them melee you, its an instant kill it seems on hard boiled. dont think im going to be able to complete this game on hard boiled. I do like that you can take it in sections on the chapter selection, so you can focus on one checkpoint section at a time if need be.

You have to finish the game first in casual, normal or hard to unlock the Hard Boiled. After that you can finish in Hard Boiled and you will receive the achievement for the others difficulty.

Do it on hard first.. I know it might sound odd.. But I did.. and it made hard boiled a cake walk..

If you do it on normal or casual and go right to hard boiled you're in for a world of hurt..

Just my opinion though.

If you beat it first on normal, you get normal and casual, beat it on hard you get normal and casual.

I cant confirm the old school method. Do you really need to cheat for it? Its not even that hard..

No you DONT have o do it, old school would be pretty easy (especially on the mega restaurant levels w/ the guitar cases). Just a tip in case someone uses the health pickup or any of the others many times in the level.

I just found out another easy way to get the 50 combo. It's level one in the restaurant part, when you hug the pillar the guys just keep coming down the stairs for awhile. You can easily get headshot after headshot or just shoot them regularly.

I ran through it on hard , then hard boiled, then redid level 1 until I had enough for the 250 collected. So it doesn't matter what mode.

Glad it helped.

Can't really strafe unless you tequila time on hard and hard boiled. He rarely misses -_-V Even though theres like 10 health packs in the room, it still hurts like hell when you get hit.

I assure you, I strafed on hard Boiled and he shot at the walls like he was retarded. he missed me plenty of times.

As in "Circle Strafe"

If you strafe in ONE DIRECTION then he won't miss. But the AI isn't complex enough to predict abrupt movements like circle strafeing. Which ultimatly leads to them missing.

After you get out of the sewer, move to the left a bit and spin attack. Afterwards, go around to the back and climb up the stairs and stay up there and kill the sniper. After you kill a few more guys, a sniper will appear to your left, kill him. Be careful of the guys directly across from you as well. It's pretty simple, when the rocket guys come out, precision aim or just assault rifle them. Simple.

To make the battle with LOK not so crappy. Right before you enter his room. If you look above the band that's playing, on the ledges, there's 2 golden guns and a crane. Even on hard-Boiled, the golden gun barrrage cuts through him like butter in the desert. This should help those still having a difficult time with him. But, if you die after entering the room, your golden guns won't be with you when you re-spawn. Also, if you can hold onto the heavy assault rifle you get from the guys you fight before the apache in the final stage. Wongs bodyguard will go down with half of a barrage. That's right half a barrage with the heavy assault rifle takes him out in hard-boiled. It may take a little fun away from the battles. But those dudes can be frustrating, especially LOK on hard-boiled.

After you kill a wave of henchmen, there will be a short pause, maybe 10-15 seconds, where nothing happens.. it also makes a distinctive sound like a DING. Run up, barrage, teqiula time back down to a corner with a med pack.

It takes a bit, I know, you'll get the hang of it.

Great guide!

I found out an easy way to get the "Old School" achievement.

After you beaten the first level of the game (Hong Kong Marketplace), go back and reload the section with the first level's boss.

If you beat the first boss using only Tequila Time (slow motion) you will get the achievement. It'll only take a couple minutes and it beats having to do the ENTIRE level using only slow motion.

Beat this on hard boiled so I'll add a few tips for that difficulty:

Don't dive unless you're doing so to get behind a wall or something
Hit RB to slow-mo kill EVERYTHING
Don't waste your tequila meter on health unless you are desperate
For the Lok boss battle, when running sideways on wiggle the stick from left to right rapidly whilst running forward, he seems to hit you less than if you run in a straight line.

Problematic areas will be the part where the band is playing & the boss battle where the Russian guy shoots a rocket launcher out of the chopper at you.

For the band part, take it slowly, picking off a guy at a time, hang around the outskirts of the level grabbing health when needed & use barrage on the guys in Army of 2 masks.

In the boss battle, immediately get the golden guns at the wall, run upstairs & grab the m60 & paper crane, keep blasting in slowmo, get headshots. Use the golden gun in barrage, move left, he will fire & miss then run right, he'll miss again, then move left & repeat this process.
The biggest problem comes when you run out of ammo as you need to run to the wall to grab an m16, that is when the splash damage will f*** you over so be quick & stay away from walls.

The trick mentioned somewhere on this forum about beating the game on casual then going to CONTINUE & selecting hard boiled works for beating the last boss on that difficulty, some kind of glitch.

Play the game in a random order, don't go from beginning straight to end on hard boiled as you'll probably get angry.

Hi guys.

I got a problem unlocking the " Diplomatatic Immunity " achievement.
My friend and i , we both got the expansion pack and unlocked most of the extra achievements.
We followed the guide on this one , we both are on the ship deep below , but no achievement unlocked after the kill.
Any tips on how to do it or even where on the ship , in case we are in the wrong spot?
Thanks
