    Playing on Easy makes this level simple enough. I would advise using the plasma pistol (don't charge it, just shoot fast) to shoot the buttons on all the pillars, as this makes it so they're open when you get to them. (Same with the ones on the Gondola that you have to uncouple.)
    The only times you need to fight are -
    - When the Gondola arrives at the other side of the canyon, you have to fight until the left shutter opens and lets the sentinels in so you can go through it.
    - At the end of the level when you are with the Shipmaster, you must fight until the ship arrives.
    Fairly easy one as long as you know where you're going.

    Tozi TiberiusOn easy, you can just hold 'x' to open the vent covers. It's about as fast as shooting them from afar but doesn't waste the ammo.
