1. General Notes, Cursed Sands

General Notes

This walkthrough works for both the Xbox and PS2 versions of the game. It was written based on the Xbox version, but there are PS2 specific notes throughout informing you of differences between the games. The PS2-specific sections are initially bolded and italicized so they are easy to spot. If you are playing the Xbox version, simply ignore all italics.

We have all of the secrets for the Xbox version and most of the secrets for the PS2 version. We are, however, missing some. If you find them and are the first to email us with a secret, we'll give you credit when we add it to the walkthrough.

Talking about secrets: The Xbox secrets are denoted as such, (1 of 2), (2 of 2), etc. If you are playing the PS2 version, some of the secrets are the same, some aren't. Therefore, if you are playing the PS2 version and are looking for a secret described in this walkthrough and it's not there then it probably means that it isn't a secret in the PS2 version. Move on. If you are confused email us.

If you find yourself stuck, first make sure that all the enemies in an area are dead. Some doors won't open until all the bad guys are killed. Also, look for explosive barrels or other odd things like, grates and railings/ledges that you can jump on.


Cursed Sands

Ras El-Hadid

Make your way through the village
After the cool movie beginning the game, you start out with a Knife and your M9 Pistol. You will need to get familiar with your controls. This is sort of a training level. You'll get a lot of "?" icons. Read them as they give you tips about game play and your environment.

Move forward through the courtyard area, learn to break things with your "Kick Button" or your "Attack Button". Head right and you'll see a guard walking away from you. This is the first time that you can do a sneak attack and stab him in the back. Crouch and then approach the back of the guard with your Knife. When you see the Knife Icon appear attack him and you'll get a bonus item for doing a sneak attack. In this case it's an Armoured Helmet.

After you kill the guard, a few other guards will come out. Shoot them. Go into the room on the right, opposite the wooden crates. Go into the side room to get 9mm Ammo and a Health Pack. Go back out and head to the right. Follow the path until the next courtyard with the white canopy kiosk in the middle. Take out the guards and check out the Clipboard hanging on the wall. Clipboards sometimes contain helpful information.

Go up the stairs. Kill any guards that you come across. There's some Health in the room on the right along with some 9mm Ammo. Exit out and go right and right again. Along the right wall, you'll notice some lattice work. You'll get an icon telling you that you can break it and that this is a SECRET AREA (1 of 3). Break the lattice and grab the Armoured Helmet and the Ammo. Once you're done with that, go back to where you came up the stairs and pretend that you're going back up them. At the top head right and go through the door. Objective complete.

Destroy all radio equipment
Go forward and kill the guards. There will be a locked door on the right. Jump through the opening and crouch to go through the opening. On the other side, go unlock the door that was just locked. There is a guard there, kill him. Backtrack and go through the halls. You'll get your first Checkpoint. Approach the staircase on the right, but watch out for that barrel coming at you! Avoid it and go up the stairs and shoot the guards. Explore the 1st room on the left and the room straight in front of you; there's a letter, some Health, Ammo, and a 1938 La Tour, wine that restores health. On the right of the hallway there is a table with Binoculars on it. Pick them up. Go through the second door on the left which leads to the outdoor balcony.

On the far side of the balcony pick up the Grenades on the wooden crate. To the right are some stairs going down. Shoot the guards at the bottom and go down the stairs. Kill off any remaining guards. Underneath the stairs is a hallway. Go into the room below and shoot the guard and blow up the radio.

Exit out and go past the stairs go through the door on the right. Behind the wooden plaque on the wall is a SECRET AREA (2 of 3) and a Treasure Item. Exit out. Go right and up the stone 3 or 4 stone steps and go along the small stone path. There is a ladder in the corner. Go up the ladder and break the crate for a SECRET AREA (3 of 3) and Treasure Item.

Go back down the ladder and go through the opening to the left of the ladder if you are facing the ladder. Go through the archway and through the halls until you get to EXIT.

Go through the hall and down the stairs. At the "T" intersection you'll notice a guard patrolling take him out. Head right and through the archway and up the stairs. Go into the radio room. Kill the guard at the radio and "use" the radio when you get the Hand Icon. Objective complete.

Gain access to second courtyard
Proceed up the stairs and kill the guard above and you'll see a note. Backtrack back through the radio room. Outside the radio room, go right and break the lattice and crouch through for a SECRET AREA (1 of 4) with Grenades and Health. Go back to the "T" intersection and this time head left. Follow the path, go up the small set of stairs, and to the right is a door. Open it. Inside the building take out the guards. Explore the area and you'll find a Hot Meal (restores health) and an Armored Helmet. In the room with the fireplace, stand behind the bar with the Hot Meal on it. Look for a red button in the corner of the bar and hit it. This will open up a SECRET AREA (2 of 4) by the fireplace. That's about it in this area. Exit back outside. Go straight and take out the guard. Go through the newly opened gate and you'll get a Checkpoint. Objective complete.

Now, you have to exit. Go out to the courtyard and you'll have to deal with many guards. Some of them will have an MP40 Machine Gun. Pick it up and continue to take out the guards. You can also you a Grenade or two is you're in the mood. Once you clear the courtyard go up the small set of stairs and take out any remaining guards. In the room directly on your right you'll find a storage room with some Health and Armor. In the back left corner of the room is a shelf that you can kick open. This is a SECRET AREA (3 of 4) with some Ammo. Exit out and proceed down the hallway.

Go through the doorway on the left and up the curved stairs and through the door at the top. Take out the guards. One of them has a Mauser Rifle. Powerful but slow. Go through the next door and follow the path around to the ladder. Go down. You'll hear two guards talking. Approach them and kill them. Go forward and out to the courtyard where there will be lots of people shooting at you. Some of them are in red and black robes.

Once the courtyard is clear go back into the area you were just in and eat a Cold Meal if your health is low. Work your way to the other side of the opening by exiting the area and heading left. In front of you is a locked bookcase. Look up for the book sticking out (you'll get a hand symbol when you can push it). Push it and the bookcase reveals a SECRET AREA (4 of 4). Exit out head right and through the door. Work your way to the next outdoor area kill the guard and move forward. Approach the gate to EXIT.

Tombs

Pursue Helga through the tombs
You start off with the elevator dropping you. There are men below shooting at you. Kill them and drop down. Down here is a locked door, a lever next to it, and an open room below the platform you just dropped from. In this room you will find Ammo, Armor and a Note. Now, head to the lever and pull it. This opens the locked door. Pass through and down the ladder. You will meet your first Zombies here. Shoot them until they explode or they will come back to life. Work your way down the hall and through the open gate. Pull the lever and go through the door it opens and to the stairs. As you approach the stairs, spikes will come out. Press up against the spikes so you can pass through as soon as they retract.

PS2 version, you have to jump over the stairs to avoid being killed by the spike. Just look down and note the dark stair. Jump over it.

Once up the stairs, continue along the path. You will come to an open room. Kill the Zombies and collect the Health Pack and Ammo. Check out the wall opposite the door you entered. It's locked. Notice the walls on either side of this locked wall. Check them out and locate the pressure panels on each. Pressing them will reveal a SECRET AREA (1 of 3). Continue forward. There's a gate on your right. Keep moving up the next set of stairs and look left on the landing. There's a wall here that can be broken open. Do so to reveal a SECRET AREA (2 of 3). Continue moving along and you'll hit a checkpoint.

You'll come to a room with three caskets. Go to the far right wall and locate the push panel in the middle of it. Pushing it will reveal a SECRET AREA (3 of 3). Move across the room and through the door. Here, it doesn't matter which direction you go, but you do have to look out for the spikes that come through the wall. You'll have more Zombies to kill, and a lever to pull. Pull the lever to complete the objective.

Locate an exit from the tombs
When you pull the lever, move forward and drop down. This raises the gate in front of you. Pass through and move forward, collecting health packs and ammo along the way. Once you pass through a certain door, you'll hear it crash down behind you. Now you're locked in this room with many Zombies. From the entrance, run right and along the outside of the area. To your right will be an opening. Run down the hall and into the small room. Here is a guard. Kill him. Now, you're in a good position to take out any approaching Zombies. Once they're all cleared out move forward and three men will come out of a room. Kill them and enter the room. Your objective is now complete. Grab the health and climb down the ladder. Work your way forward and you'll find the EXIT.

Lower Tombs

Pursue Helga von Bulow
Move forward and look out for the pressure plates on the ground which will raise spikes if stepped upon. Work your way forward and up the stairs into a room with crates and Zombies. On top of the crates is Ammo. Head down the path to the right. Kill the guard and hit the switch on your left. This will open up a SECRET AREA (1 of 3) behind you with a Treasure Item inside. Backtrack out to the main room and head through the door to the right, killing anyone who approaches. You'll find yourself up on a ledge. Head left on the ledge, shoot the guy below, and locate the switch on your left. Press it and the lid on the casket below will open up.

Next to the casket is a lever. Pull it. Climb up the stairs and head left. Go through the newly opened gate door and kill any bad guys in your way. Drop down and go through the tunnel to your right. Pull the switch. Now, exit out and go through the tunnel directly across from you and into the room with the casket again. Go up the stairs and left, through the gate again, and around to where you previously dropped down. Don't drop down, instead, move across the newly raised floor (pulling the lever) and through the open door. This is a checkpoint.

Now, move forward, up stairs. A guard will run in front of you saying something about getting out. Toast him and investigate the wall in front of you (if you did't turn to kill the guy). It can be cracked. Crack it and you will have found a SECRET AREA (3 of 3). Move forward and look out for the block spike booby trap.

PS2 version, there is no spike trap here, but there is a SECRET AREA. Notice the boards along the wall. Bust them and you'll see four panels. You have to press these panels in order or face certain death. How do you know the order? Go back to the coffin you opened up revealing an earlier secret area. On the bottom of the coffin is the pattern in which you need to press the panels. When you do so a SECRET AREA will be revealed behind you.

Proceed forward, shooting guards below. Stay on the ledge and work your way around to the right. Pull the lever (look out for Zombies), drop down and move through the newly opened gate on your right. Pass through the gate. This will complete this objective.

Eliminate all of Helga's "Elite Guards"
Through the gate, move up the stairs and kill the guards and Zombies. You'll come to a bridge. Cross it. Beware, on the other side and through the door are two mean guards on either side of you. Take them out, then look to the room in front of you. Shoot the guards and move into this room. There is Health and Ammo here. Climb the narrow staircase in this room and press the button at the top. This opens a door directly below you. Go through and down the stairs. Kill the guard and around here is where you'll get an Objective Complete notification.

Locate Agent One
Continue moving down. In front of you is health. Right or left will lead you down a hall to an opening in the wall, where you will both complete your objective and have the opportunity to EXIT the level.
