PARASITE EVE WALKTHROUGH DAY ONE - RESONANCE CARNEGIE HALL: After viewing the insanely awesome intro FMV you are ready to begin. Start a new game and after a short and sweet little FMV sequence you will see Aya getting helped out of a limo at the opera house. You get a chance to name Aya...so go ahead leave her name as is or make one up for her. Once you get control of Aya just walk her through the opera house doors and once inside talk to the man standing there or don't...it's entirely up to you. Then go straight up and through the doors. The opera is in session, sit back and enjoy the VERY cool sequence that follows and once given control of Aya again just walk up onto the stage and a battle with EVE will follow. EVE FIRST BATTLE - 40 HP: Don't waste any bullets on this pathetically easy boss (as you will need all you can save), just equip your police stick and run up to her while she is storing power for her beam and bash her. When she's about to shoot her beam at you (it's obvious when she is) simply run to the left or right to dodge it. You should have no problem AT ALL draining EVE's 40 HP and if you do I feel sorry for you. Once you defeat EVE, Aya has a sort of flashback and when she comes out of it EVE floats away. Pursue her to the next area where there is a large hole in the floor, and open the chest in the corner to get an 45HP replenishing vial (NOTE: Items in this game sometimes differ game to game...what is a 45HP+ vial in one game, may be something else when you play again). EVE has obviously gone into the depths of this hole and you must follow her. Choose the top choice which lets you jump on in. After a strange encounter (you'll see) you have control again and just go straight up where you see doors in the distance. You have reached a long hallway with numerous doors on both sides. All are locked on the first screen so move on down the hallway. You will hear the shriek of a mouse and witness a very cool FMV which shows how the mitochondria mutation works (gross!). Now you must battle the dog sized rodent...no hard task. Once again CONSERVE AMMO, use your police stick. The fighting pattern of the mutant mouse is simple...he'll run at you, stop, and shoot three fireballs at you with his tail. The fireballs are almost EMBARASSINGLY easy to dodge allowing you a chance you run up and knock the little critter senseless. Once you have defeated the rat (you did DEFEAT the rat right?!) then you have access to the first two doors in this area. Enter the right one and you will startle an opera performer who proceeds to run from the room. Go over to the lockers, open the one that is second from the left, and receive 6 bullet clip. Now enter the door on the left, open the third locker from the left and recieve another 45HP+ vial. Ignore the bodies on the floor, leave the room, and enter the third door down on the left side of the hallway. In the room open the chest in the corner for another 45HP+ vial and nudge the body at the desk so that it falls over. Search the body to recieve a key. Before you leave you can move some clothing in the back of the room and release a parrot that flies around, but this is completely pointless. When you're back in the main hallway run back to the first screen of the hallway and enter the door on the left. While you are running to this door you may encounter random mouse mutants, but they are just like the first one you met...and just as easy with only about 13 HP each. Once you have reached the room open the chest that is in plain sight to recieve a gun power-up. Now go over to the left corner and you can break through the wall to access a secret room. Enter the room, open the chest inside, and recieve some body armor that is definately better than what you are wearing now so EQUIP IT. Now you can leave the room OR open the wooden cabinet and battle the mouse mutant that comes soaring out...the choice is yours. Once you are back to the hallway enter the first door on the right and move EVE south to find a chest that holds a 45HP+ vial. Now you can leave through the door you came in or go north and exit through another door after fighting a group of baddies. Proceed north in the hallway to screen two of the hallway and enter the second door on the right. In this room open the closet in the back and get a 6 bullet clip then leave or mess with the parrot until it gets pissed and fights you. Anyway, once you are back to the hallway enter the door that is right across from the one you are at. Open the closet for another bullet clip and then read the book on then read the book on the table which gets you another key. Now that you have this key you can open the main door at the end of the hallway...do so (save first...). Inside you see EVE playing the piano (is this what she does in her spare time?) so go up to her and watch the FMV. Afterward it's time for another battle with her. EVE SECOND BATTLE - 80 HP: Another simple boss. However, this time I do recommend the gun. Her pattern is simple so just watch her closely and you can't lose. She will float around and then fire beams at you, 2 beams this time instead of one. When you see her hands lighting up just move Aya BETWEEN her hands so that the beams go around you...one on each side. Then EVE will move to the left with the beams still going full blast so maneuver Aya up slowly so she stays between the beams. Once the beams disappear run up to EVE and open fire. There is a chance that she will simply slash you with her nails if you get TOO close, but this is rare. This fight is as easy as it can be. If you really suck and require healing at some point in the battle then just use a 45HP+ vial or your 30HP+ PARASITE ENERGY spell. After you beat EVE Aya will experience another flashback and when she's comes out of it EVE is gone. There is a hole in the upper left- hand corner of the room, and you must pursue EVE through it by selecting the top choice. You have now reached the sewer (being a cop is such a great job...) just go north and fight any monsters that wish to mess with you. They are basically just mutant mice and mutant frogs...all fairly easy. Once you reach an area with a stairway on the right and left, ignore them and open the chest to the left to receive a new weapon. Equip the gun as it is much better than what you have, and move north until an event happens. After the event there are two well concealed chests in the right and left northern corners. The one on the right contains a gun power-up, the one on the left an 45HP+ vial. Now pursue the little girl into the next area, but don't pass up the hidden chest just to the left of the door which holds inside it a 6 bullet clip. In the next area proceed left, kill two frogs and click the button to the left of the gate. This button serves two functions...the top choice opens the gate and the other allows you to save your game. Open the gate and enter the next area where you will meet EVE once again. Run up to her and an FMV sequence will follow. Now you will face a new foe. SEWER BOSS - TAIL 80 HP - HEAD 120 HP - TOTAL 200 HP: This boss is another in a long string of easy battles. It has two portions, a head and a tail. The head has FAR too much defensive power for you to mount a serious attack on it so go for the tail at first. The boss will slash his tail at you and unleash a bunch of green beams with it, but they are simple to dodge by maneuvering between them. Once you dodge just run up to his side or back and fire on his tail. Continue this pattern until you defeat the tail. Now you can attack the head of the monster. He has a new attack in which he fires 3 flaming lasers on you per turn. The lasers are easy to escape from by just running in the opposite direction. Then just fire on his head and continue the pattern until he dies. Once you have sent the SEWER BOSS to an early grave you appear outside the opera and get questioned by a reporter. Daniel Bo Dollis, a cop who Aya really looks up to as a father figure, comes along and knocks the **** out of the nosy reporter. Then he gives you a ride to the station. DAY TWO - FUSION N.Y. POLICE DEPT: The day starts here with an automatic sequence in which Aya speaks to Daniel, a few other NYPD guys, and the Chief. Once you get control of Aya there is a save point in the lower left of the room, but if you already saved it at the beginning of the day then there is no need to use it now...just remember it for later. Now leave the offices by the door next to the one that leads to the Chief's office. Outside in the hallway enter the first door on your left to enter the locker room. Open the second locker from the right at the top of the screen to get some new body armor, and open the one second from the left to get an 90HP+ vial. There is nothing more of interest here so it's back to the main hallway. Take the next left which happens to be a stairway going down, and once you reach the bottom go southwest and enter the door on the left. Inside open the chest to your right for an Upgrade Tool, open the chest in the northeast corner for a 45HP+ vial, and open the chest to the left of Wayne Garcia (the man at the counter) to get a 6 bullet clip. Talk to Wayne and Torres Owens enters the room and takes over...he also gives Aya a nice new gun! Now you can leave this room once Wayne explains the weapon upgrade process (whenever you find Trading Cards on your journey bring them to Wayne to get special favors in return). Go back up the stairs outside and you will see Ben (Daniel's son), a child dressed in bright red clothing...walk up to him to start a little sequence. Once the sequence is over go back to the Chief's office and speak to him...this triggers the Press Conference over the opera incident to begin session. This sequence is automatic and once it is over you are back in the Chief's office getting yelled at. When all is said and done leave the offices and when you're in the main hallway enter the double doors on the right. Now exit the police station. A map of New York comes up and you have 3 location selections...just choose the Museum for now. MUSEUM: Aya and Daniel have a nice little conversation on the way, and once you arrive just follow Daniel up to the entrance. Talk to the old geezer who then lets you inside. He opens up an iron gate that locks a stairwell and allows Daniel to go on up. It takes Daniel about an hour to make it up the stairway (I've never witnessed such slow walking...) so go take a piss or something while you wait. Once he FINALLY makes it don't even bother following him because you can't at the moment. Instead run over to the front of the square desk to the left and search there...after finding what you were looking for you can now go upstairs (feel free to save the game before you go up at the phone on the left wall). Upstairs you see Daniel so run over to him and you will both enter a museum office. A HUGE talking scene follows and once it is over you will see the map again...choose the NYPD. N.Y. POLICE DEPT: Back at the station, follow Daniel out into the main hall. Go north to the far end and enter the door on the right (next to Daniel). You are back in the press conference room where you speak to the Chief. Once you have finished leave the station again and witness Daniel's amazing driving skills in a cool FMV! The rest of the trip is automatic and you end up in Central Park. CENTRAL PARK: Once you arrive Daniel will run into a problem at the gate...a certain reason he cannot enter the park. So it's all up to Aya...no problem right? Okay, go through the main gate and then go south until you get to a save point...DEFINATELY save as this is a random battle area! Now follow the U-shaped path and in the curve of the U search in the trees for a hard to see chest that contains a 6 bullet clip. You may have to fight snakes and such on the way, but they are simple and pose absolutely no threat. Anyway...once you reach the next screen go right and there are three gates leading into the Central Park Zoo. The middle one is the entrance, but search in the darkness of the other two gates for chests that contain a 45HP+ vial and a 6 bullet clip. Now enter the middle gate and open the chest to the left that has a new gun inside. Now proceed to the northwest up some steps to a save point next to a door (save if you wish). Inside the room that the door leads to you can open a drawer in the upper right to receive a key, a cabinet at the top of the room to get some new armor, and you can move the stretcher out of the way so that you can open a dresser and get ANOTHER new gun! Phew...what a room. Now leave the room and go right until you reach a new door, enter it now that you have the key. Inside go through the shattered glass to your left and follow the little path around the glass hallway until you reach an area with three chests. The chests contents are a 90HP+ vial, a poison protection potion (lessens the chances that an enemy can poison you), and a body armor power-up. Now you have gotten everything of interest from this room so leave the area and go right again once you are outside. You will see an entrance to another area above you, but ignore it for now and get the chest hidden behind the column as it contains a 15 bullet clip. Now you have a choice...you can either go through the entrance now and get to another part of the game or take the longer route and pick up a bunch of items...it's up to you. If you wish to enter now, just do so and follow the left path to end up at the next part of the game. Now for the longer path...ignore the entrance and continue going right...you will see some steps going down so take them. You will be in an open area with benches and a chest...open the chest for another 15 bullet clip. Now go southeast to end up in another place with nothing of interest so just follow the path right and then go up to reach the next area. In this area there are two chests...the one in the lower left contains a 90HP+ vial and the one in the lower right contains a 15 bullet clip. Once you have raided the chest go up over the bridge and into the area where you would've ended up had you taken the entrance earlier. You are in the upper right hand corner of this V shaped path so get yourself over to the upper left side where there is a gate that leads to the next area. Here just go straight up, ignoring the left path, and at the next area go straight up again and into the doorway. Inside you will see EVE on the stage so run to the left for a nice, disgusting FMV sequence to begin. Once it is over have Aya exit the area to the left. You will be back outside so run to the right and you will see the little girl that has been haunting your visions...follow her backstage. Run up to EVE when you see her and she will float off...pursue her and end up back outside. Now go back the way you came and take the left path that you ignored earlier. You will be in an area where you can go up or left...if you go up through the pavilion you can save your game at a phone booth there AND pick up a chest in the corner that holds a 15 bullet clip, otherwise go left. Before you go though AT LEAST search the pavilion, you can get two hidden chests within it. The one on the left has a 15 bullet clip, the one on the right has an Instant Revive potion (revives you in battle when you die)...these chests are hard to find at first (because you simply CAN'T see them), but keep trying THEY ARE THERE. Once you have gone left you will see the little girl running downward and you should run after her. When I say SHOULD I mean that this area is pretty much a maze and you can reach the same point a variety of different ways, but I'm going to guide you through the route that gets you ALL of the chests and items. To do this you must follow the girl DOWNWARD, pass up the left path, and take the first right that you come to. You will see the girl running left this time so follow her that direction and follow the path around taking a right at the bottom and then go south on the next path to get to a chest with a 15 bullet clip. After getting the chest go back down the path and just go left until the next area where there is a chest next to a bench that holds some body armor. Continue left across the bridge into the next area where there is another bridge going down...go down this bridge to get a chest containing a body armor power-up. Now go back up the bridge and follow the path straight left into the next area where you will see the girl again...running left. Instead of following her take the first path up, take the left at the top, and then go down the first time you can to get a chest containing an Upgrade Tool. Now just go up, left, and follow the path to the left and into the next area. In this area just follow the path down-left until you reach the next section, where you do the same thing...follow the bridge down-left into a new area. Now you are in an area with staircases and a path in between them...take the path (the stairways lead to the same place with NO treasures) and get the two treasure chests on the way that both contain a body armor power-up. In the next area area just go up-right to exit the screen and then on the next screen there is a phone booth where you can save...and you DO want to save here. Then go right and you will meet a boss. SNAKE BOSS - 200 HP EACH - TOTAL 800 HP: This boss is really not too difficult...just make sure you have your best weapon equipped before you take it on. The snakes pop out of the ground then shoot little spiked balls at you that explode and send needles in all directions. What can I say you know? Just dodge quickly THEN shoot...that's the best way. You may be a bit overwhelmed at first, but once you kill one snake there is less pressure on you...then you kill another and another. The only problem is...the snakes that remain get much bigger as you kill off one of their own. Once there is only one snake left he is HUGE and he always pops up in the same place and has two attacks...the spiked ball (only MUCH bigger and with more range) and a sweep where he lies down and swings his body across the screen. You can just beat this form by just standing at the snakes base and firing away with your gun...sure you'll take some hits but when wounded just heal with your 60HP+ PARASITE ENERGY spell or a 90HP+ vial. He goes down in no time. Once you beat the snake exit to the right of the screen, and in the next area run up to EVE who is floating on the carriage. After talking to her, board the carriage and enjoy the "flaming horse" FMV. Once it's over...it's time to take on EVE yet again. EVE THIRD BATTLE - 300 HP: Of course she is also, yet again, EASY! You have a VERY small space to move around in, but that actually makes this particular battle easier. EVE has two lousy attacks...one is her slash were she swings at you with her long arms, the other is her power beam where she flies into the air and fires a huge beam at you. Just shoot her and then run away from her to avoid her slash attack, and when she flies into the air stand in the MIDDLE of the carriage and wait. As soon as you see her beam forming in the carriage notice what corner it is forming in and run to the opposite corner quickly and you will escape undamaged. Then continue this pattern...she's simple. After the battle watch the next cool FMV and then there are a bunch of automatic scenes so pop open a cold one and relax. There is ANOTHER FMV, then MORE automatic scenes...and finally DAY TWO comes to an end. DAY THREE - SELECTION SOHO: At the beginning of Day 3 you find yourself in a room. In the upper right there is a chest containing a 30 bullet clip. Leave the room and once outside you will talk to Kunihiko Maeda, a man who works in the department of pharmacology at a Japanese University. After running through the dialog, Daniel pulls up in his cop car, and now search the trash area to the left to receive a trading card. Now exit the screen to the left and enter the gun shop in the next area with a little help from Daniel. Search inside for a total of 8 items including two gun power-ups, an upgrade tool, a 15 bullet clip, two different new guns, a new police stick, and some nice new body armor. Exit the gun shop and go back to the screen where Daniel's car is parked and exit that screen to the right. Now enter the pharmacy and collect all items within, which are as follows: a green potion, an Instant Revive potion, an upgrade tool, an armor upgrade, a 180HP+ vial, a weapon upgrade, and about 3 other items which can be found by simply searching all cabinets, etc. Now leave the pharmacy (save your game first if you wish at the phone on the counter) and go back to Daniel's car, talk to Daniel and Kunihiko, then walk up to the car and select "OK" to bring up the city map. Select the Museum as your next destination and prepare yourself for one enormous automatic scene in which a lot of the mitochondria elements are explained in dialog and FMV. When it is over your map comes back up, it's night, and you must choose the N.Y.P.D. as your next destination. N.Y. POLICE DEPT: After talking to Kunihiko and Daniel you can leave the main entrance and enter the hallway (be advised this is a random battle area). Speak to the man on the floor twice to receive a 6 bullet clip. Go south and enter the door on your left, search the second to right locker to receive a 180HP+ vial, and talk to the man on the floor twice to receive a 6 bullet clip (there is another locker that can be opened, but is locked for now). Exit the room, enter the door below you and speak to the man on the floor twice for a 30 bullet clip (save your game if you wish). Enter the Chief's office and talk to the man on the floor twice who may or may not give you an item. Now go back to the main hallway and exit down the stairwell, then enter the weapon's room. An automatic sequence will follow and afterward Wayne will be back in business (give him all trading cards you have and upgrade if you wish). Now go into the other door in the hallway that is busted open and talk to the man on the floor twice to receive a 6 bullet clip. Now go back up the stairwell, go north, and talk to the man on the floor twice to receive a 15 bullet clip. Continue north and enter the conference room, and get the chest in the corner that contains some very good body armor. Exit the conference room, take the stairway that leads up and search the guard on the floor to get a 6 bullet clip. Proceed left down the hallway, enter the first door you see, get the chest in the corner that contains a 180HP+ vial, and be prepared to take on two monsters that break through the window to attack you. Exit the room, proceed left passing the new hallway and enter the door on the far left. Inside search the chest on the floor to get an armor power-up, then search the chest on the desk for a 180HP+ vial (save your game before leaving). Exit the room and go north in the hallway that you passed up beforehand. Once you reach the top you see a new FMV sequence (sick!). In the next area enter the first door on your right and meet a woman who replenishes your HP. Exit the room, search the man on the floor to receive a special key that opens up the locked locker which when opened gets you a trading card. Proceed up from the man on the floor and enter the room where you will fight a really easy monster and receive a kick ass new gun for your efforts. Open the chest to your left to get an armor power-up, then speak to the man in the corner to get a 6 bullet clip. Exit the room and proceed to the right down the hall and take a left at your first opportunity, passing up the far door forever as it contains absolutely jack. Now you will be in a hallway with a blood pool.run to the door at the far end and enter it. You have reached the room where the Chief and Ben are cornered by a mutated German Sheppard.time to prove what you've got. THREE HEADED DOG BOSS - LEFT HEAD 300 HP - MIDDLE HEAD 450 HP - RIGHT HEAD 200 HP - TOTAL 950 HP: This boss is the most difficult yet, but that's not really saying much. He is, once again, a fairly easy boss. He has about 4 attacks total, and none of them are absolutely deadly. His strongest attack is his leap attack, in which he leaps at you and bites you causing some pretty big damage but less than 100 HP. Then he has a beam of light attack where he fires out a thick yellow laser and rotates it quickly left and right (not TOO hard to dodge if you get moving as soon as you see him start the attack). Then he has a ground pulse attack which is basically a pretty strong purple pulse that travels by ground.in a huge circle all around him. His final move isn't even an attack, but rather a healing power that gives one of his heads 100+ HP. Just have your best gun equipped and fire away at one head at a time. It is probably best to go for the right head first, as it has the least HP. Anyway, whenever you get weak just use a 90HP+ or 180HP+ vial.or just use your 60HP+ PARASITE ENERGY spell to conserve items. This guy isn't too difficult as I previously said, but it wouldn't hurt to have one of your Instant Revives just in case he gets in a lucky shot. Good luck. DAY FOUR - CONCEPTION N.Y. POLICE DEPT: At the beginning of Day 4 you are in the Chief's office talking to Daniel and some other folks.once the conversation is over leave the office. Save your game here if you want and then go up to the room where the woman filled your HP earlier. Here you will see Kunihiko again and Daniel will also enter and give you a 30 bullet clip. After this, it is night, and on the map choose the Hospital as your next destination. HOSPITAL: After the driving sequence with Kunihiko you find yourself in front of the hospital. Talk to Kunihiko to receive a key, then enter the building. This is a random monster encounter area so be prepared. Once inside, save your game at the phone on the counter and get the chest in the lower left hand corner which contains a 15 bullet clip. Exit this room to the left as the door above you is locked for now. In the next area you will see the little girl and after the sequence press the button to the right of the elevator to open the elevator door.now enter the elevator. Push the keypad on the side and after a strange elevator ride you must push the keypad again to open the door and exit. In the next area the power fails, and all of the lights go out. Go down and once you reach the next hall enter the first door on your right after going north a tad. Inside you will see a glimmering object on top of the shelf to your right.get it, it's a key. Now get the other two chests in the room which contain a 30 bullet clip and a great new gun. Exit this room by the upper left door and you'll find yourself in a new hallway. Here you will see the little girl again, and afterward enter the door to your left. In this room open the desk drawer to get a key and get the chest that contains a 180HP+ vial. Save your game and exit this room to the left. Here there is but one thing to do and that is to get the armor power-up in the lower left hand corner.now exit through the lower right hand door. Proceed south in this hallway and enter the door that was previously locked. Inside you will find two chests containing an upgrade tool and a weapon power-up, and after you've gotten them exit the room to the north. Here just go straight up and search the medicine cabinet for a key, then search the dead body for yet another key. Now head all the way back to the hallway where you last saw the girl and enter the door she disappeared into. You will see the girl again and get the chest right in front of you that contains a new gun. Now go south and get the weapon power-up glimmering on the floor in the corner. Go back into the hall and enter the first door on the right. Inside get the two chests that contain an upgrade tool and a 90HP+ file, and don't miss the key in the lower right hand corner. Leave this room and run up to the power box where the little girl was standing until you see it in close-up. Here click on the right side of the box three times to light up all the white lights. Next, click on the left side, choose the second selection, and afterward click again and choose the first selection. You have just turned back on the power. Now exit to the right and enter the elevator, click on the panel to go back to the first floor where you will see the girl AGAIN. Now go right, save your game, and enter the door above that was locked before. In this room talk to the two people in the lower left hand corner, then exit to the right (first get the hidden trading card that is completely not visible behind a cabinet). Aya will have another flashback in this room, then talk to the nurse in the left hand corner who will give you key. Now get the armor in the chest to the right, then exit this room. When you are back in the hospital waiting room go left and through the door on the far left by pressing the green button. Here go north all the way and get the chest that contains the weapon power-up, and enter the door to the left. Here you will fight a weak creature and get a 30 bullet clip in the lower right hand corner. Before you leave turn the far left wheel above the chest, then exit. Now go back to the elevator, push the pad inside and choose the third option. Now enter the door on your left and get the chest that contains a new weapon. To open the northern door click on the red arrow on the left wall, then turn Aya facing up and click to push the machine out of the way. Now push the red button behind the machine and the northern door will open. In the next area (beyond the northern door) get the armor power-up in the chest in the upper left then exit the room at upper right. Enter the door on your right here and get four things: search the blue pile for an item, search the notebooks for a key, open the chest on the stool for a green potion, and open the chest on the counter for a 30 bullet clip. Now SAVE YOUR GAME at the desk, then leave and enter the elevator to the north. You will see a super FMV with jets deployed over New York then, after pushing the button in the elevator, you'll get to the roof where you get to fight the easiest boss in history. SPIDER BOSS - 750 HP: This boss is the ultimate pushover. He has three little wimpy moves. His slash is how he responds to your getting too close, he doesn't like that...it's a pathetic attack as far as damage goes too. Then there's his fireballs, which are EASY to dodge if you just run solid in one direction...he'll miss. Then there is his ONLY scary move, which doesn't even have to be scary, and that's his triple web attack...scary because IF it hits you then you are frozen and are wide open for his fireball attacks. Of course, if you know his strategy he's a walk in the park. Just stay pretty far away from him and continue running around him counter-clockwise. He'll fire his three webs at you and miss if you are far away enough. Then run up to him and fire with your best weapon. Now he will shoot a fireball at you or slash at you, both of which you can easily cope with I hope (the fireball by dodging it, and the slash by being a man and taking it...no crying babies allowed here). Then fire on him again. Now, chances are he'll do another fireball before his web attack, but if you don't want to take a chance, then don't. Anyway...follow this simple pattern, and you'll realize how much of a true wimp this boss is. After you do about 450 damage, the camera zooms in and you fight the rest of the battle in close-up. Kick his ass. Once you have won the spider blows up a big hole and falls in. You'll see EVE and talk to her. After a SUPER cool FMV it is time to RUN down to the lower left corner as those jets are coming FAST!!! Now, you'll see another righteous FMV...then you'll fight a wimpy baby spider who just a normal enemy. Once you reach the bottom (in automatic sequence) you are greeted by Daniel and Kunihiko who drive with you back to the station. Just go to the Chief's office and talk to the people there...end of the day! DAY FIVE - LIBERATION CHINATOWN: This day actually starts at the main map, so CHOOSE Chinatown. Once there go north and in the second area get a chest to your right containing an armor power-up and a chest to your left which holds a 180HP+ vial. Go north and get the two chests to your left here that contain a weapon power-up and a new gun...then save at the phone if you wish. Go north again and you will see Kunihiko looking into a sewer, speak to him and he'll give you a key. Now get the chest in the upper left that has a 30 bullet clip, and enter the sewer. NOTE: This section is a maze type area and I have given one of the fastest ways through it here that still gets you the good armor (with only ONE out of the way item noted, other than the ones you get ON THE WAY). There are about three other chests that I didn't mention here, and they don't contain much interesting anyway. Still, if you wish to find them...more power to ya. Anyway, in the sewer after you FIRST go in take a left and get the chest for a 15 bullet clip, go left, left again, then north for an upgrade tool. Go south, left (get green potion here), left, south (get great armor in a chest here), south, south, and south. You have now reached an open type area, climb the ladder to your right and go all the way right to get a chest containing a new police stick. Now backtrack and take the way down that you just passed to reach a new area. Here you will see an FMV sequence, then go dowm/right and down the ladder...get the chest here that has an upgrade tool. Now go back up, take the stairway leading up, and enter the door. Here just enter the door on your left and get the chest in the next area with a 30 bullet clip inside (save your game here too). Now click on the console in front of you and choose the top option and the next top option. Do it again but this time...top option, then bottom option (watch FMV). Now click it and just push the first bottom option. Go through the door to your north and you'll see the results of what you did. Go straight to the right and exit through the door there, then go straight up the steps and through the door. Now you are in the subway, so go left and climb the wall. Here get the two chests containing a 180HP+ vial and a weapon power-up. Take the left path up and get the chest containing a 30 bullet clip on the way. You are now on a new boss. CENTIPEDE BOSS - FIRST FORM 800 HP - FOUR SECTIONS 150 HP EACH - TOTAL 1,400 HP: This boss can be tough if you don't know his strategy, simply because IF his moves hit you...they HURT! His moves include his simple smash in which he brings his head down on you, his poison balls which he fires into the air and lets them land on you for damage AND poisoning, and his lightning bolt in which he swirls around about 45 degrees and lets loose a MAJOR killer bolt at you. The strategy actually makes him pretty easy though! Just stay right at his side towards his tail on his left (his REAL left) side. Just keep moving with his tail, firing, moving with his tail, firing, etc. With this method, the only move he has that is ANY threat is his poison ball attack...and that alone is no big deal. As long as you are towards his hind area and right at his side, he can use the lighting bolt attack where he turns 45 degrees VERY fast, and he'll still miss you barely. This strategy is tried and true...you can't lose if you do it right. After you do about 800 HP damage he explodes into four segments that dance around you and fly into you for big damage. This part is difficult at first because there are NO safety zones! Just concentrate on killing ONE of them very quick so you'll open up a safe zone. Now there is an empty space so try to stay in it and blow the other little bastards away. I can practically PROMISE you that you will need to use your 280HP+ PARASITE ENERGY spell at least once in this part of the battle so don't be afraid to do so. Anyway, annihilate those pesky things and stand victorious in the end. Now, continue north and go to the end of the bridge...search the dead cop and get his key. Now you are instructed to insert DISC TWO...do so. Go back down the bridge and back to where you where...go FAR to the right to find a hidden path and follow it down to enter a subway car. Inside the car, get the three chests that have body armor and two upgrade tools. Now leave the car and take the middle or left path down. Go down again to end up at the save point area...no go down a screen and get the chest containing an armor power-up. Exit the area through the iron gate now that you have the cop's key. At the map it will be dark now so choose the Warehouse or Museum. WAREHOUSE (optional): This is an optional location, but it also gets you the strongest weapon in the game...your choice. Anyway if you decide to go here there is a cop at the gate who eventually runs off and you can enter...get the chest directly to your right which has a new weapon (this one is not the one that is the best...obviously). Now go north and enter the warehouse. In the first room, get the chest to your left that contains some body armor and exit the area to the north. Here, go down/right and get the key glimmering on the floor. Exit the area through the door in the upper right and in the next area go directly down and enter the door on the left. Here get two chests...one has some body armor, the other has a clip. Go up the steps to the left and go past the save point, up a ladder, and to another chest which has a weapon power-up (now save). Exit the room through the door on the left, go across the straight bridge, and ebter the next door. Here get the three chests which have ywo armor power- ups and an upgrade tool. Now climb down the elevator shaft to the north. Here you will face a boss. CRAB BOSS - LEFT CLAW 400 HP - RIGHT CLAW 400 HP - BODY 800 HP - TOTAL 1,600 HP: This boss has KILLER attacks, so strategy is a must. He has about four attacks including his regular stab attack where he stabs at you with one of his claws for some damage. Then there is his bubble attack, which hits you once or twice for about 90 HP damage each time. He also has an eyeball laser attack where is eyes pop out of their sockets and let loose two deadly beams. His final attack is also his most dangerous...his claw grab, in which he grabs you with one claw and NAILS you with the other reducing your HP to 1. The tactic on this boss is to stay at his side (much like the CENTIPEDE BOSS). If you are at his side you are completely safe from his bubble attack, and as long as you are at least a little DISTANCED from his side you are free from his stab and claw grab. So the only attack that there is to fear is the deadly eyeball lasers. These are complicated to dodge...as soon as you see the eyes come from the sockets just tear ass in a certain direction and DON'T let up until the lasers disappear. If you succeed good, if not...oh well good luck next time and just heal the damage. While fighting this creature go for his claws first because his body has ultra high defense while the claws exist...kill the claws then go for the body. If you get weak, you'll want to use your 280HP+ PARASITE ENERGY spell. Once you defeat him you get the best weapon in the game (a rocket laucher launcher type weapon...SAVE it for later). Then get the upgrade tool in the upper left hand corner and leave the warehouse the way you came. MUSEUM: Enter the museum and you'll see a person dressed in white disappear into a door on the left...save your game and pursue him/her. In this room exit down/left and reach a room where you can get a 180HP+ vial in the lower left corner from a chest. Now exit this room by another door and witness the man in white again. Now get the two chests; the one on the left contains a 180HP+ vial, the one on the left has a new gun. The man in white has locked the door he exited through so backtrack to the museum lobby now. Here go north and in the next area click on the machine to your right and choose the bottom choice to get an Instant Revive potion. Now go north again, and in this area go north and left. You will see a huge scorpion (not a boss, don't worry) and a machine...click the machine and select the middle button to get a 15 bullet clip. Now take on the scorpion to clear the way...he looks intimidating, but he's really quite simple. In the next area go north to another area and get the chest here that has a new gun. Go north (don't take the stairs) and once you reach the next area look around and then just leave...as you leave a sequence happens. Now go back from where you can, take the stairs this time, click the machine at the top and choose the second option to get a 30 bullet clip. Now go north and in this area you will see the result of the sequence that just happened. A door has been cleared in the corner so enter it and find yourself at a ladder going up or down. Up is where you want to go, however if you want to go down really quickly there is a chest with an armor power-up waiting for you there. Once you have gone up enter the door and inside click the machine and select the top choice for a 30 bullet clip. Now go south to the next area and south AGAIN (after clicking the bottom choice for a 30 bullet clip at the machine here) to get to the next area. Here take a right and go right again here after getting the chest containing a 400HP+ vial and then follow the hallway to another area. Here just go south to the next section and go through the double doors on the left here, which get locked behind you by someone. In here get the chest with new body armor and then go up to the broken window and choose the top choice which makes Aya climb outside onto the ledge. Walk to the right and you'll be given a choice again, choose the top one to have Aya drop down a floor...then enter the room to your left. Exit this room to the right and then in this area go north. Here there is a Museum shop and inside is a chest holding an armor power-up (you can't see it, but it's there under the canopy). Now go north, and follow this hallway to a large red carpeted area where you must go through the northern door. Go north in this hallway to reach the museum security office where you can SAVE finally! Also in here push the button to the right to turn on the elevators, watch a security camera video of EVE, and get the chest to the left that has a new weapon. Leave the room, go down the hall again, and watch the cool FMV of the T-REX coming to life. Now go left and in this area get the chest containing an Instant Revive potion, then go north. Here get the two chests containing an armor and weapon power- up. Now you are at the area where the destroyed room is (the one above all of the stone heads). Go down the stairs, then down and follow the way back to the museum lobby. In the lobby go up the stairwell and then into the door that is now slightly cracked. Here you see Kunihiko and he gives you a new weapon. A scene takes place (with Daniel kicking some ass) and then Aya gets a key. Now make your way back to the security office to save your game because the boss is close by to there. Once you save it, exit the office, go down the halway, take a left at the red carpet area, go up the stairs, and exit this area by the southern door. Here you will face a boss. TRICERATOPS BOSS - FIRST FORM 1,000 HP - SECOND FORM 1,050 HP - TOTAL 2,050 HP: This boss isn't too hard despite his relatively high HP. He has moves that absolutely hurt like hell so the key is, of course, dodging them. He hasn't many moves, just a lightning bolt ground attack and his charge which HURTS especially if he does three in a row. The way to beat this guy is simple...just fire at him with your best weapon (other than the rocket, save that) for about two turns then get ready to dodge his charge. At first he will only be doing one charge at a time, but as you weaken him...he'll move up to three. The dodging isn't as easy as it looks, but it can be done. However, when he does three at a time you'll most likely get hit by at least one. Anyway, when you see him about to do it just be right in his line of sight and DART quickly to the side so he goes past you...that's the basic "dodge" on this guy. As for his lightning bolt attack...just get lucky and be in the middle of its circular path, that's all I can say. He shouldn't be too tough for you, and once you've drained 1,000 of his HP his head armor comes off and you can deal even bigger damage per hit AND he doesn't do his charge anymore. He's purely a lighting bolt kinda monster after you destroy his head shell. He runs about on the screen like a little fairy and stops to shoot his lightning...this form is easy beyond belief. So KILL HIM! Afterward you may want to go back and save your game because when you continue downward after the TRICERATOPS boss it's time for ANOTHER boss (but first get the chests containing a 30 bullet clip and a 180HP+ vial). T-REX BOSS - 2,900 HP: Uhhh...this guy is kind of tough. However, at this point in the game you may have a certain PARASITE ENERGY spell that makes the battle MUCH easier. The spell I'm talking about is the best one in the game (the KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND of PARASITE EVE so to speak...NOT LITERALLY!). Anyway, it causes Aya to transform into an angel like being and she does about 250 HP damage 7 times in a row! I guess you can understand why this would help out a lot... Anyway, if you use that the T-Rex will still be alive so it's time to tell the strategy. This guy has quite a few moves in his arsenal. His basic move is his slash attack, where he just hits you if you're too close. Then there is his main attack in which he is basically a flamethrower and a huge tower of fire from his mouth BATHES the area back and forth. He also has his electric ball attack where he charges up and fires two balls of energy at you (these are EASILY dodged). He has more, but these are his most deadly and most used. Now, the strategy isn't too hard to learn and it is once again a side based strategy. When he is about to blow his fire you must run up to him and choose the correct side of him to stand on...you can tell by his body shift...go to the side farthest from where his body is pointing. You should be able to dodge the fire easily this way...as for the electric balls, just run around and those pathetic things will miss you. He's not so hard after all eh? Just to let you know, I have beaten him WITHOUT using that special PE spell, so don't go and learn it just for this boss if you don't have it. Good luck! After he's dead, exit the area by the hard to find door in the corner and you'll be in the museum lobby again. Take the elevator to the fourth floor and get the chest with an Instant Revive by the gross looking door. Ignore the door and follow the path down the stairs. Here go north, then north again, then follow this path north, then go left, the south and you will be back in the triceratops room. Exit to the south to trigger an FMV sequence. In the next room go THROUGH the broken glass case into a secret room with two chest holding a new weapon and an upgrade tool. Now exit this room by the southern muck covered stairway and in the next area enter the cracked door. Here you will see EVE and a HUGE non-interactive section begins. You can't play it, but you can watch it...and the FMV in these sequences will have you screaming out in glee. We're talking truly AWESOME stuff here. Once it is all overwith...you find yourself on an island of slime...go north to face EVE one last time. EVE FINAL BATTLE - TOP PORTION 1,800 HP - MID SECTION 1,600 HP - BOTTOM SECTION 2,300HP - TOTAL 6,100 HP - SECOND FORM 2,300 HP - GRAND TOTAL 8,400 HP: This is, in my opinion, the hardest battle in the game. EVE is one tough *****. By the way, after fighting the T-Rex you should've gained enough levels to have that super PE spell, and you practically MUST have it here unless you are packing a BUNCH of rockets! Yes folks, it's time...time to use the Rocket Launcher. EVE has three parts to her body so the best way to beat her is to use a weapon that hits ALL parts...the R. Launcher is definately that weapon. Anyway, EVE has quite an impressive arsenal of moves on her side. She has two hands in front that shoot fireballs at you. She has two hands in back that go apeshit and fire energy boomerangs at you in QUICK succession! Also, she has a move where her top portion shoots a fast string of energy needles at you. She has a move where she just flies right up to you and bashes you bigtime! She also has several VERY annoying moves where she flies up to you, picks you up, and totally kicks your ass. She has three of these, in one she picks you up and just hits you about four times in a row...ouch! In another she picks you up and hits you less times, but confuses you as well. Then is her worst of all, when she picks you up and drains your HP to 1. Your basic tactic on this chick is to STAY AWAY and pummel her from a distance. Her fireballs are EASY to dodge by running in one solid direction and her energy boomerangs usually won't hit you if you're far away. As for her pick up/kick Aya ass moves...what can I say...just RUN!!! Anyway, once you start the battle IMMEDIATELY use the super PE spell. Then just fire your R. Launcher at her and keep yourself alive until your PE is fully charged again...and use the super spell AGAIN. After this, a few more R. Launcher blasts should do it. Uh oh...the battles not over though...time for EVE's second form. Phew...at least her hard form is history and since this is counted as a new battle your PE meter should be filling pretty quickly. All you have to do is survive her three wimpy attacks. She has a wing slash for close encounters, an earthquake type attack that appears right under you and is fairly unavoidable, and her super attack in which she flies high into the air and fires a HUGE purple beam down on you. All of these attacks (except the earthquake) are easy to avoid, so just stay alive until your PE meter fills and let her have a taste of your super spell. A few more rocket or gun blasts should do it after that. Congratulations, you did it! After a cool FMV it's the end of the day! DAY SIX - EVOLUTION This day begins with a short FMV sequence then a realtime non- interactive scene occurs. When you have control of Aya run into the door on the left and inside speak to Kunihiko and another man. Make sure to talk to the guy on the far left if you want a bunch of free items for the battle ahead...like 400HP+ vials, etc. Now leave the area the way you came and see a bunch of realtime and FMV cutscenes...then it's time for battle with the FINAL BOSS!!! FINAL BOSS - BABY FORM 1,500 HP - SECOND FORM BOTTOM SECTION 1,800 HP - TOP SECTION 1,200 HP - TOTAL 3,000 HP - THIRD FORM 4,300 HP - FINAL FORM 8,000 HP - GRAND TOTAL 16,800 HP: This boss isn't anything tough if you know his patterns. The first form (who looks so much like Cupid, it's scary) is practically the easiest boss in the entire game! He floats around, then stops, and then lets loose with this circular beam which is SIMPLE to run away from. Just run and hit, run and hit. Of course, the baby also has a move that he does VERY rarely in which he fires a HUGE force along the ground and reduces your HP to 1. Oh well, other that that he's a wuss. Take him out and face the next form. This form is also very easy. Just alternate shots between the top portion and bottom portion because you want to weaken them both pretty good before they split in two. This form has a few moves, none of which are very scary. He fires double bolts at you which you can move between and then fire on him. Also he has an attack where he fires three homing energy balls at you (no problem to dodge though either). However, once this form splits things get rough. You've got the bottom half jumping around either nailing you or beaming you, and the upper portion either shooting you or charging you strengthened by lightning. Well...screw these buggers. Use you know what (the PE spell!) and annihilate them. If you don't win against this form yet after that, at least ONE of the parts will be dead and you'll have an easy time getting rid of the remaining one on its own. Now for the third form, a moves master! This guy has a two hit combo attack that hurts you pretty good, he also has a grab and smack HP to 1 attack. I mustn't forget his earthquake type spell...of which he has TWO different kinds. Then comes his purple energy ball attack, etc. Big hint...don't get too close to this guy unless he has just fired those purple balls and you want to shoot him. The tactic is simple...use the super PE spell, then stay alive WHILE fighting until it recharges...and once it does use it again. Now a few more shots should kill this form, onto the final one. You'll notice that this guy has a body of freakin' STEEL! Even the PE attack only takes off 1 HP damage per hit! Don't worry though...concentrate on doing about 10 - 15 points of damage...then a sequence will begin. In the FMV Daniel throws you a clip of SPECIAL bullets...REALLY special bullets...the kind that do 999 HP damage per hit! So nail this guy hard with those 999 HP hits and don't let up till he's dead. By the way...his moves are so pathetic they need not be mentioned here to maintain a serious mood. After you kill him though...is it over? NO IT'S NOT!!! He's still moving, and towards you! Quick, run into the door on the left! In here QUICKLY run to the door on the left and go inside (ONE HIT KILLS HERE BY THE WAY...DON'T GET TOUCHED BY THE ENEMY!). Now, take the LEFT path and follow it all the way to a door on your right...go through it! Run down the steps here and enter the door on your left! Now run right and take the FIRST left you see...run to the ladder and go down! Here go down but click on the console to the left to start the self destruct sequence...now run down again, go left, and climb the ladder. Run down and straight through the bottom door here. In this next area, run down also but exit through the bottom door on the left. Now run up these stairs QUICKLY and exit to the right. Here just run all the way left as fast as you can, and...YOU ESCAPE!!! Enjoy the ending, and congratulations! Thanks to Revolution reader Jordon Cahow!
