Before I speak, I'd be honest. I played HB with the HK MKT PLACE and TAI O. But MEGA-RESTAURANT was near impossible so I played them on Normal until WONG'S ESTATE. Defeated Wong on HB, I sadly only got the Normal achievement.
So what's my comment? Use spin attack. This would definitely takes fun away but you must have noticed our best friend Barrage has been shortened by a LOT! Also our enemies can take much more punishment than before so your Spin Attack will really help. Place yourself in everyone's vincinity and kill them all with it. But you will need to take cover instantly if more are coming. Find the paper birds as quickly as you can.

This is the hardest game i have played ever. The best tip i can give is focus all your time on killing the bosses of each stage in reverse order. For the last boss i belive you can just defeat the first face off and then depang and after complete Wong on casual while watching the ending on hardboiled this supposdly unlocks the achivement also. however i cannot confirm this however as i was playing i noticed the second chapter of each level seemed to unlock on hard boiled if i did the boss first then started the levels from the beggining and played through. But once you have completed the bosses the rest of the game is easy. The boss lok you need barrage 2 times two kill him after hes first cut scene to get to this cut scene go to the top of the stairs hide by the corner at the top of the stairs. he wont be able to hit you as he doesnt move. then every so often as he stops shooting. (he wont reload this way) jump on the corner of the banister at which point he should reload and fire down at him while in tequila time. If he doesnt reload at first dont fire just jump back down and retry. Also shoot the satues legs. these two bosses lok and wong are the only two hard bosses

Huh... The game isn't that hard at all if you don't do all the fancy stuff to kill enemies.

I played with a bit of trouble through hard on my first playthrough and now going through it on HB. I just take it easy and take ALOT of cover...Not going up dinosaurs etc because that's just a death trap.

In stuff like mega restaurant, put yourself in a corner and just kill enemies that come at you, that's what I did at the casino stage and I got through that with no deaths.

I did something similar placing myself in a corner and ambush any foes but you know these people are gun blasting bastards. So they would keep firing their guns until something falls on us and we take damage from the debris and their guns. So I could still handle the regular enemies. Once the boat guys in golden suit attacked, I surrendered. Their assault rifle was too powerful.

Yes i have a tip for HB. Have someone kick you square in the nutz before you start and it won't be as painful.

The best advice i can offer is to take cover and make them come to you. As for the bosses i just used the achievement guide posted and with a little time and a lot of tears it worked out.

Good luck!
