CHEATS, HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

BUTTON COMBINATION CHEATS

2X HEALTH
This is quite a handy cheat, it'll take out some of the frustration and it won't ruin the game for you. It doubles your health, so you'll be able to take more shots..
On the Main Movie (the Movie you see after the Team Soho logo when you start up) press:
Up, Up, Left, Left, Right, Right, Circle, Circle, Down.
You will hear a female scream or a low moan to confirm.
Note: If you re-enter the code you will hear the sound of smashing glass (this obviously turns the code off).

ARMOURED CAR WEAPON

On the Main Movie (the Movie you see after the Team Soho logo when you start up) press:
Up, Down, Left, Right, Square, Triangle, Circle.
You will hear a female scream or a low moan to confirm.

HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

GENERAL HINTS AND TIPS

Free Roam mode:
In order to unlock Free Roam mode, complete all main missions in the game. This will give you the option of touring London without having to do any missions.
Indicators in free roam mode: For added realism, in free roam mode, you can use your indicators (turn signals), by pressing L1 to indicate right and L2 to indicate left.
Losing the Police: Tips:  If you are being chased, drive as fast as you can: so make sure choose a fast car and don't bother with the slower ones, like the Nissan Micra etc.. If you're a good driver you can loose the police with ease by using the pavements and the gaps between other cars. Driving in the middle of the road at top speed using the gaps is a good way to get them off your tail. If you get really stuck you can get the cops off your tail by getting out of your car and killing them all, then get into another car and drive off... On the DC Carter driving missions you have no choice but to drive skilfully and flat out with your sirens blazing (if in a squad car). If you crash or drive too slow you will not have enough time, as every second of the time that is given to you count.
Hidden mini-tank: I can't remember exactly where, but it's near the the pink (redish) coloured roads that are near Buckingham Palace. I was driving around and I noticed a small tank surrounded by a wrought iron fence, with an opening (it's on a small pedestal, like a statue and is green). I pressed Circle and got in and drove it around for a while. It still gets damaged but is quite strong and I have heard that there is a cheat that makes it fire its gun.
Hidden vehicles: You can find some hidden vehicles in the parks of London, such as a sooty van (Little Suzuki van with grass in the back) and a very fun golf cart parked behind huts and bushes around the parks. Select Free Roam mode once it is unlocked and make your way onto Oxford Street from the start point. Head west past the marble arch and onto Bayswater Road (use the map supplied with the game for road names). Follow Bayswater Road westward as far as the game will allow you to go, then turn left at the blockade onto the Hyde Park Inner Road. The Hyde Park Inner Road U-bends back around to travel through the centre of Hyde Park at this point. At the back of this U-bend is an open gate. Go through it, and parked outside a mansion is a Nissan Skyline GTR and a TVR. In the garage opposite the mansion is a Lotus and a go-cart. To get the Concept Lexus and a Triad Gang Car (souped-up Honda) in Free Roam mode, in the mission where Carter infiltrates Jolson's warehouse, go to Chinatown (located in Soho). Go down into the underground garage (the same car park where the Triads and Yardies have a gang war). The position of the cars varies on each floor.
Health restore: If you lose life stand against the wall in a safe area to let your health slowly go back up, you can see this happening as his shirt gets blood on it and the blood will disappear.
Gas tank kills:
Shoot a gas tank when an enemy is nearby to easily kill them.
DC Carter moves: Knock out hostage: With a gun, press X to get a hostage then press Square. Kick hostage: While unarmed, X to get a hostage then press Square.
Getting past the Yasmin glitch: When you experience the Yasmin glitch (it's when she gets stuck and doesn't move (the chances are you'll experience it.)) the best thing to do is shoot her and run as she tries to shoot you and she will become unstuck.
Mark Hammond moves: Shoot hostage: With a gun, press X to get a hostage, then press Square. Break hostage's neck: While unarmed, press X to get a hostage, then press Square.
Help from Mark: Before rushing into a room and getting shot, press X and mark will stand against the wall, shuffle to the edge and he will look in telling where people are.
Crouching: Crouch behind objects to get a less better chance of getting hit where your shooting back.
Skip intermission sequences: On some of the movies between missions you can press R3 to skip, but not all sequences can be skipped in this way.

MISSION HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
Also see the Walkthrough and Guides link above for more detailed help...

Mission 1: part 2:
On mission 1, part 2, shoot the guy on the balcony with all the barrels behind him, if you get the guy he will drop leaving behind a cool AK-47 rifle, which, if used properly can last you to the end of level 1, if you run out there are also 2 shot guns in a small room off the 1st main room in the warehouse (the one up some steps).

Mission 11: The lasers:
This is quite a difficult/frustrating mission, due to the controls and the strange character movement. I found that the best way to do it is to just take your time and if you do hit a laser and the gas comes out, run out of the room and restore your health by leaning against a wall (you can do this twice without dying). Move slowly and let the camera do the work. Also it is better to put your guns away when negotiating the lasers. There are only two methods to get past the lasers, either rolling under them or with your back against the wall and side stepping past them. Eventually you will do it, it just takes time and patience.

Mission 12: Finding the Ship:
This frustrated the hell out of me and probably many people too, so here a little help for you... In the driving part of the mission, where you have to find the ship, it's in the dead end part where you have to go through the cones. When you go through the cones get out of the car and search around for a small alleyway - the ship is up there, just follow Yasmin to the boat.

Mission 20: File location:
You will find the file in the room before the garage with the Lotus and TVR in it. When you enter it there is a big pile of box files in the corner. If you walk up to them the screen will go black and the cut scene will be activated. 

Mission 20: File location: (more detail):
This is quite a short mission and I guess this is why people get stuck on it (you expect it too be longer maybe?). Kill everyone outside and follow these directions from the street: Go into the building (kill everyone), turn right into the next part (kill everyone), go right up to the top of the room (kill everyone) and you'll see file boxes scattered on the floor. Walk up to the box files and the screen will go blank and load a cut-scene where Frank Carter looks at some important evidence about Charlie's activities..

Mission 22: General help:
First, loading the weapons: Sneak past them towards the other end of the warehouse, but not too far, don't go past the 2 guys at the far end. Now, sneak between the boxes towards the white van and a cut-scene will take place. After you see the cut-scene, you don't need to follow any car, what you need to do is drive as fast as you can to the cargo ship. Note: You don't have to go through the alleyway (like in a previous mission: (12 I think??)), instead you go through the main gates at the docks.

Mission 23: The ship:
To get on the ship without getting killed, you must first shoot the barrels on the dock. The huge explosion will alert the men on the ship. Now pick them off from the dock before getting on the ship. When on the ship, head right and take everyone out on the way.

Mission 24: DC Carter: Land Of Hope And Glory mission:
When you are escaping the Sol Vita and come down the stairs at the start, on the left hand side there is an explosion which brings down a staircase blocking your way through. However, first kill the men in front of you, then the man on the walkway above the wreckage. Then, instead of having to go through the package room, where you fight Harry for Hammond, go up to the wreckage. There will be a part where the floorway meets the hand rails. If you roll in the correct location, Carter will roll straight through the wreckage, avoiding the package room area and saving time and health.
