remember the first time you did that mission, read the title and thot " what the hell is that?" i have the answer.

Time magazines do indeed come in handy. Phnom Penh is the capital of cambodia, and during the vietnam war, a large scale killing took place, mostly by helicopter.

Tommy essentially recreates that.

Note: i got my info from a time magazine about how some guy was on trial for the killings in phnom penh and wikipedia on exactly what the hell phnom penh is. this may not be totally accurate.

That's right Darth. smile.gif


Wow, I had no idea that people would not know this.
I never questioned the title, which by the way, is '86, not '87.
How can anyone not have known about this?

I guess this is not covered in history class anymore,
but there certainly enough data on this, Pol Pot, and the Khmer Rouge.
Such as "The Killing Fields" by Hang Nor.
Plenty of other books and movies. Quite disturbing as well.


Mission tip: Save the M60 that Tommy is given this mission,
put it away when you land and use the Colt for the fight.
(Easy 1-shot kills) Grab the briefcase, head downstairs.

After mission passed, stash the M60 at the airport. Save.
That way you'll have one stashed but can use RPG normally.
If you don't know how to get to the airport with only Starfish being open,
use the Golf Course to stash the M60.
You won't see the M60 again in normal gameplay until Phil's opens up.

Yup, I have to agree, definitely one of my favorite missions.
It's just straightforward killing, no surprises. The M60 rocks.

It's pretty hard on the PS2, cos you have to manually aim at the gang members far down on the houses, while Lance rocks the helicopter back and forth, so you're effectively shooting at small moving targets (they're moving relative to you, since you're moving). I'd imagine it would be very much easier on the PC though, with a mouse to fire the gun.

Uh, yeah, that's the point. That's what makes it so fun and a great challenge. Love that mission.

It's definitey best (and most varied) shoot'em all mission in the whole game. Gets easier each time I try it, but still rocks!
