    Okay. Which part are you on, on the 2nd level? I'm also on that level but am quite far through it. If you're further than me, then I can't help you. I am in the building with the elevator where you have to kick the bombs at the right times to open the doors...

    Geezer, use Slow a lot. Mac Speed is only useful to get boxes in the background and to get you out of trouble. Take your time! Try to dodge the enemies and give them pink crosshairs, then combo them all, as they will only require one or two punches then. Dodge dodge dodge!

    Which difficulty level are you playing on?

    This is one tough game, if it is your first time through then play in kids mode, there is no shame in this, you will not be able to do it in adult.

    Yes, use slow a lot, in fact most of the game should be spent in slow mode :)

    Learn the enemy attacks, never attack straightaway, wait for them to take a swing and dodge it. Once dodged hit slo-mo you then get the target sights on them, start your attacks. Remember when you have beaten up the closest ones in slo-mo you can hit the mach-speed button (while still in slo-mo) to cover the ground at normal speed. Also, if you have the pink target on an enemy when the new enemies spawn they already have pink targets.

    This way you will rack up huge bonuses, the trick is to dodge the enemies first before attacking.

    For the mini-bosses like the gun slingers, joker and helicoptors/plane, it is a simple case of learning their attacks. Remember that in slo-mo you can hit their bullets back at them.

    So I shouldn't feel ashamed that I couldn't beat the first helicopter on Adult setting?!:oops: Bought this yesterday and while the rest of the first level is easy that helicopter is ridiculous, how the hell can you beat it with just five life hearts?

    I'm going to keep trying but it's frustrating only getting three goes at it before having to start the entire level again!

    Old skool difficulty, one of the reasons why I love it :)

    The shark is not that bad, if I recall you simply have to punch the bombs back into him, then you get to beat him up a bit. The next boss was far harder the one the one that was the copy of you.

    Best yet is the final level :p all the bosses again :)

    If you thought VJ was hard, you're really in for a nasty surprise when you start playing the story mode on GX. WOW! That was difficult.

    I think games like VJ, F-Zero GX and Monkey Ball series are some games that are proud to be difficult, and that's a good thing, cos so many games now can be v. easy.
