Owen H Brown's Gamercard
Level 4 - The Sewer

Run as fast as you can to the closed gate where the mercenaries will appear for the first time. Defeat them and allow Rorschach through the gate where he will open the adjacent gate for you.

Run as quickly as you can through the level until you reach large open area with pillars with you alone on a balcony, follow the balcony to the right and turn the wheel to open the gate flor Rorsachach. DO NOT go through this gate, as that is the area Rorschach just came from. Make sure you run to the gate at the opposite end of this large, flooded, pillared area. You will be swamped by lots of mercs, use your Charge attacks to defeat them as quickly as possible. Once victorious, Rorschach will open the gate for you after climbing a pole.

Continue through the level until you reach a large area with four gates, two on both sides, and catwalks at the far end of the room. A large wave of mercs will leap from the catwalk, defeat them as quickly as possible and prepare for a second wave. Once defeated, open the gate on the left for Rorschach, and he will in turn open the gate on the right for you.

Run through to the next area and defeat the mercs in order to climb up the ledges, run through the next area as quickly as possible, which involves lots of stairs and bridges over waterways, take care in making sure you are following the correct path. When you reach a gate, defeat all the enemies that have followed you and rush up the stairs and open the gate. Defeat the enemies that arrive to allow you to activate the next lever, opening the second gate.

You will enter a flooded area. Turn right to turn the wheel. It might take Rorschach a while to keep up with you, so when you turn the wheel keep holding (A) until the cut-scene appears. When three wheels have been turned, run down to the bottom, up the central stairs and once at the top, pull the dual levers to open the gate. Pass through this gate and stop your timer.

Cumulative time: 55:00

Level 5 - Police Ambush

Defeat all the cops in the first area so that you can allow Rorschach through the door and then grapple to the roofs, following the path and defeating any enemies.

You will meet up with Rorschach later on the roofs and will be ambushed by many cops at various stages. You will reach a part where a ladder will be inaccessible until you defeat a large wave of cops. Once up this ladder just keep running until you can grapple away from Rorschach again.

Follow the next rooftop pathway until you find yourself back on the street without Rorschach. Keep running until you reach a junction leading to two dead ends. GO STRAIGHT and NOT LEFT, grapple up to the ledge. Be careful no to grapple down once you get there. Now follow the rooftop paths until you reach a street with Rorschach in it. Follow the path past the cops until you reach a narrow dead-end with a closed roller-door, defeat all the enemies and open the door for Rorschach, he will open it for you in return. Run a little further down the path and stop your timer when the level ends.

Cumulative time: 65:00

Level 6 - Underboss

DO NOT PANIC - You will have lots of time and the henchmen are weak, like the prisoners in level 1. USE BLOCK.

DO NOT bother fighting his henchmen at the beginning of the level, just run after Underboss as he criss-crosses up the building. Climb any ladders he climbs and jump any gaps that he jumps.

You will eventually reach a ladder that cannot be climbed until a wave of weak henchmen is defeated. SAVE UP YOUR CHARGE for the last few enemies or until you have climbed the ladder. You will then have your first melee encounter. One or two attacks with the electrified YYXXY combo will send him running to the next section. Here he will unleash another wave of henchmen whilst attacking you.

I strongly advise you use counter attacks on henchmen to build up your Charge and to avoid attacks by Underboss. Make sure you block whenever he swings at you. When you have enough charge, attack him again with an electrified YYXXY combo to send him up another ladder, where he will pick up a pole as a weapon.

You will probably not have charge now, so be careful to block when he swings the pole at you. He won't have any henchmen so it will be easy to get in a couple of YYXXY combos and send him onto the suspended pipes where he will activate the flamethrower.

It is important that you now take your time and think clearly. There is no rush, you should by now have 8 minutes (or more) to take your time and avoid being killed. You do not need to go anywhere near his flames.

First, note that henchmen will be dropping down from ether end of the catwalk, confine yourself to one end and keep using counter attacks or YY attacks on the henchmen as a means of boosting your Charge and replenishing health.

When you have some Charge (flashing red), throw (B) a henchman directly at the pipes that Underboss is standing on. He will lose his balance and jump down to join the action. DO NOT be near where he lands, activate your charge and lay into him with a couple of electrified YYXXY attacks until he leaps back onto the pipes.

Simply repeat the last couple of paragraphs until the pipes break. Underboss now has no other option but to face you head on. By now you should have some charge and his health should be very low. Activate charge, YYXXY and he will be finished in a flash, and you will have the achievement.

Notes:

It took me 75 mins to complete the game

In some instances Rorschach will stand idle, it will only take a very quick and dedicated effort to push him into the next area in order for him to activate and resume normal play. This is not necessarily a death sentence, so do not panic, this happened to me on my successful Turbo attempt in level 3. It depends on how lucky you are and on how fast you are to act.

DO NOT expect to get this achievement first time through. If you fail, take a deep breath. You will simply fly through the next attempt because you will remember your mistakes, leaving more time to fight Underboss. It took me 3.5 attempts to unlock Turbo.

Please post any times you achieve for each level, particularly if they improve on my recommendations.
