When you choose the normal story mode from the title screen and can
choose either Normal Play or Time Attack, shoot anywhere
off-screen. The words EASY will appear next to the Normal Play
mode on the screen. This gives you 5 hits in the game, and not just 3!
In the Main Menu (third selection box under
"TIME CRISIS" screen),
use the gun to shoot the "R" in "TIME CRISIS" two times, then shoot
the "+" over the "TIME CRISIS" twice. If successful, a new menu will
appear where you can select up to 9 lives, unlimited continues and
If you have a racing controller with a foot pedal, plug it into the second
controller port and use the foot pedal to duck. It's the closest you can
get to the arcade without buying a stand-up console.
If you don't have a foot pedal, try this but
be sure to take off your
shoes first. Plug a normal controller in Port 2, and place it on the floor
where you can reach it. You can now step on any of the buttons (X,
O, etc) and that will make your character hide.
