WARNING!! This method will likely reset all of your progress from both campaigns. Get them first, or create a backup save somewhere else and don't touch it until after you've done this.

You can do this in a MUCH easier way. I beat the game 2 years ago on Easy, and just popped this one now. You don't even have to play through all of the Take Off Platform, just the last checkpoint from where you meet the bosses, which the game conveniently saves for you.

The bad news is that you have to fight the last bosses on Hard, but it's not impossible. See description below.

Here's what to do:

1) Beat the game on Easy. Or Normal. Your choice. You could also beat it on Hard if you want to, that would also work.

2) Make sure you have max health for the boss fight. If you're not at maximum health, load up checkpoint 36. There are several health stations on this level, but definitely make sure that you fully recharge in the room where you get into the Heavyguard, on the right wall as you move toward the back. You won't get another opportunity. Then play through to the last boss fight, after the long cutscene.

3) This is important: right after you get to the final bosses (and the save icon appears), quit to the main menu. Don't fight the bosses.

4) Assuming you didn't beat this on Hard (and that's why you're reading this), go to the dashboard and move your savegame to a memory stick.

5) Go back into the game and start a new game on Hard. Play through to the first checkpoint. (I went all the way to after I jumped down the ladder, but you might be able to do this before that.)

5) Exit the game. Go to Options => Select Storage Device. Select your memory stick.

6) Select Continue Game. You will find yourself just before the last fight. You'll find that the bosses deal a bit more damage than before... the game has scaled the difficulty up to Hard.

7) Grab the shotgun from the floor to your left and immediately shoot the chandelier above you. Regroup, use the dot on your laser sight to find the hidden enemy, and unload your clip into him. That should kill him and still leave you with health. Then use your sight to find the other mech and do the same.

8) Sit through the last cutscene. The cheeve will pop as the credits roll.
