Beginner character selection:
It is recommended that beginners play through as Alan, as Wesley has a tougher path to get used to. Experienced Time Crisis players who have not used Wesley should also be aware that it is generally more challenging than Alan's route.
Collecting Ammo Packs:
Ammo Packs for the Special Weapons are carried by the yellow troops. Be sure to shoot them quickly and as many times as possible.
Press Action (L1 or R1) to go to your aiming mode with the sniper. When the screen turns red or beeps, release to dodge an incoming hit. Note: Some enemies hide behind trees and hostages.
Special Weapon selection and limit:
You change weapons by hiding and pressing the trigger a certain number of times, depending on the weapon you wish to use. The following is the order of weapon selection if you start with the handgun selected:
Pull trigger once: Machine Gun
Pull trigger twice: Shotgun
Pull trigger three times: Grenade
Note: There are also limits to the Special Weapon ammo, and additional special ammo is acquired in specific increments for each weapon, as below:
Machine Gun: Ammo Pack; 15 per increment, limit 200
Shotgun: Ammo Pack; 5 per increment, limit 50
Grenade Launcher: Ammo Pack; 1 per increment, limit 5
Note: The Grenade Launcher is the slowest firing gun (and as such requires precise aim for moving targets), followed by the Shotgun (due to its pump time). All special weapons do not have to be reloaded.
No-Miss streaks scoring:
Every time you get 10 No-Miss Shots as part of your streak, your score will increase by 500. For example, a 20-Streak is 1,000, 30-Streak is 1,500, etc.
In order to get extra points, you have to find objects that explode if you shoot them. In the first level, there are a few bonuses. When you get to the tower, shoot it with the grenade launcher. It should fall in a few seconds. When you are facing the stone bridge, shoot at the barrel in the bottom right corner. It should blow up the bridge. When you are in the ship, after the first fight in the fuel room, shoot at the tank you are facing (or the one in the background if you are player one) and it should blow up. Also, any jeeps you shoot will also result in more points.
Defeating Wild Dog and Wild Fang:
They both have special abilities. Fang can do kung-fu kicks and flying kicks. He can even kick ten foot bars, monster truck tires, and a tractor. He is also the sneakiest of the two. Dog's aiming is great. He shoots out rockets, has a gattling gun, and can be a flamethrower. His life is greater than Wild Fang and is more difficult because he does not have to get up close to kill you.
When an enemy's life bar is red, it means that it is a vehicle, and once it depletes it will not return. Blue indicates that the enemy still has some more rounds of beating to do. Green indicates that this is their final confrontation with you.
