OK to start off Im averagely good at shooters but if you follow these tips and guidelines you should make it with some patience.

1.OK firstly you want to play they game at least once first so you know how to complete all the levels, as you do not want to get lost and go into a room that you do not need to and get killed by the enemys

2. Before you start off your game hit the y button on the difficutly screen and turn on infinite ammo, then the game becomes much easier as you dont need to worry about ammo.

3. Know how to rocket jump, good. If you dont know how to do it its a simple as with a rocket launcher aim at your feet, jump, and at the peek of the jump fire a rocket and it will launch you into the air. this tactic is good for skipping parts of the levels, for example the level called dunes, you need to kill alot of enemies before you can eneter the temple courtyard but if you run round the right side of the temple you can rocket jump over the wall and skip a huge fight. Another example is the Metropolis level, you rocket jump over the back wall at the start and run outside the level untill the end and then there is one fight.

4. Use your initiative, for example use the rocket jump to get to hiding places when theres a big fight, in dunes once over the wall rocket jump on the side thing on the left hand side while looking at the temple and this gives you perfect cover for the whole fight. Also if your health is full and you see a simple +1 helath and decide you want it, get ready for a fight.

5. SAVE OFTEN, biggest tip is save save save. the saving system is quick and so is the loading one so dont be afraid to abuse the crap out of it. I saved before everything i picked up, before i entered a new room, before i turned a corner, after a big fight. if you pick up a health item and get attacked by a spawning enemy load pick it up again but know where the enemey is coming from and kill him first. just remeber so save before you pick up anything aswell

6. Follow a secret walkthrough. This helped me greatly as if you do this you get the rocket launcher, the tommygun, the grenade launcher, and the cannon launcher all early. this helps with over fighting. Obviously do not go for the secret levels as they do not help as its just more pain. and do not go for every secret as some are not worth it, example moon mountains (secret level i know but it works) you go behind a pit and open a large room with lots of health and ammo but spanws in way too many demons for you to kill so avoid it. The secrets are up to you wether you want them or not, the guide on gamefaqs is a good one.

7. Be patient. Theyre are bits in levels which are annoying, but you will accomplish with some patients. Dont remeber the level but you get stuck in a room with frogs, it will take time but you will find a way to do it, i found strafing run to work.

8. In above point learn strafing run. this helps in hards place like the above point says, but i found its also best to jump while strafing, for example the level the great pryamid at the start in that hellish boxed off room you will be swarmed with skeletons, strafing run and jumping with the cannon launcher works like a charm as when they attack if you jump it doesnt hurt you as your on their head :)

9. The quick save system is limited to about 20 saves so it will just delete the oldest one and make a new one. so be weary if your saving too much but you should only save when your good. Also after each time playing maually save your game in the pause menu just to make sure your stats save as the quick save system is only good when playing.

Hopefully you find this useful and good luck
