Also, do you run and cover and let team-mates catch up and kill? It works for some really tricky parts.
Nope I'm at the bit when you destroy the four tanks in the field and then you have to get to the helicopter in under 4 minutes, comrades don't seem quite quick enough. I'm getting closer though and using your team mates to do the leg work is a top tip
Ah, yeah I remember that. I think when the time starts, and your at the incorrect location, go right in the field and then RUN! Tbh its pure luck at this stage.
Dw theres a checkpoint in the house, and then one before you have to go down the ledge.
The smoke grenades come in useful and should prevent enemies from firing at you. Also it's very important to take cover, especially if the damage level is incredibly high.

Trying to get to grips with the drums on Guitar Hero World Tour, I just can't seem to get into the rhythm of them.

The Fairyland Story on Taito Legends 2 on the PS2.

Image

Another one of Taito's many proto-Bubble Bobbles (single screen, platforms, kill all monsters to progress) I find this quite addictive despite a nagging suspicion that in Japan this was probably a game aimed at 11 year old girls. A little bit of a puzzler as well in that each level appears to have a route that will complete it very quickly and safely and much of the game is working that out. You turn enemies into cakes and then push the cakes off ledges to squash other enemies. Some funky Engrish as well - CAREFUL FOR "WORM"!

Also Sega Ages 2500 Space Harrier (PS2) which has loads of Sega blue sky and is still FUN! despite nagging suspicion that all these Sega sprite scaling games were tech demos first, games second. This has possibly knocked the ST version off the top of my list of fave Harrier conversions.

Thanks for the top tips Tyronw and thl I got past that particular bottle neck last night, it was more difficult than the sniper level in my opinion as the checkpoints had gone screwy on my last save and it kept sending me back to the barn!! When I played last night the checkpoints had reset :D Anyway got quite a bit further in the game :D

So yes I played COD 4 and SF HD last night :D

Not yet, apparently only 2% of all COD 4 owners that use live have completed it and got the achievement!!
