Oh, I also noticed I only get 5 Rations/Noodles in Hard and 9 in Normal.
How do you beat the bosses?

I played the demo off of XBOX LIve. My read on it is "shoot, tear down, blow up, blow through, destry, building, shoot, repeat."

For my style of gaming it's a good fit. I will pick it up once it starts appearing used for a good price.

I just read a preview of Crackdown 2. That looks really good.

Sounds like my style of gaming, too.

Thanks!

I'll check it out.

You collect a statue if you don't kill any of them. You can tranque them or use other less then lethal on them. Then once you're in the garage you find a small figurine near the door. You can collect all 5 this way. Then in the end you get the Bandanna, IIRC. It works really well at lowering stress.

It's kind of weird going through a second time with all of your weapons from before. You have all of the disguises as well plus Snake in his suit. I also have all of the faces, Ottocon, Raiden's two, all of the Beauties, 8bt Snake as well as both young Snakes. I have to get the Col's face still though.

I haven't tried but I would guess it's like being berated by a 12yr old.

I'm having trouble though. When I get a call on the radio of the location of a resistance member, is the location the orange area on the map? It gives the location on the radio, but the locations aren't marked on the map.

You should be able to spot activity on your map like before. You want to use the radio and heard towards any activity. You should find one guy who is in a brown suit and whistles. Follow him and protect him but don't be seen. Always check your six as well so you're not snuck upon.
