Sift Heads World - Act 3 Walkthrough
In Sift Heads World - Act 3 Vinnie once again finds himself in hot water and this time he, along with his faithful sidekicks Kiro and Shorty, will need the help of the Mayor of Chicago if they want to be victorious. One handed Alonzo, who lost his right hand to Vinnie in Sift Heads World - Act 1, has dealt a big blow to Vinnie and his posse and has made friends in some very high places. Things don't look good, but Vinnie's the best there is. With a little patience and the use of some heavy fire power, Vinnie and his friend can make it to fight another day.
Sift Heads World - Act 3 is much more difficult in the beginning than the other games in the Sift Heads series. You are immediately asked to choose your assassin, choose your weapon and then it's time to start shooting. You need to be quick and accurate if you want to even survive the intro; not that it seems to do you much good. After you pull yourself out the the wreckage and take out all of the enemies trying to kill you, a cop car rolls up and you're hauled off to jail. Seems fair, right? This is when you learn that Alonzo is paying off the commissioner. Luckily, you have a great team backing you up (no matter which assassin you choose) and they're able to bust you out of the pokey and get you back to the safe house. With a renewed hunger for revenge, it's time to go after Alonzo again.
There are many excellent additions to the game in Sift Heads World - Act 3 that aren't present in the other Sift Heads games. It's always been the little touches that set this series apart from the other first person shooting games online and in this incarnation, those little touches are improved on significantly. The safe house in this game is excellent; offering all new options that are absent in older acts. You're still able to purchase new wardrobes for your character, but now those new wardrobe items are stored in the closet of your safe house. You no longer have to return to the clothing store to change clothes. This is a great option for those who like to keep the game fresh by changing character clothes every so often. There's also an all new Bounty Hunter classification panel you can access in the computer room as well as a brand new shooting range in place behind the building. The shooting range is more or less a mini game within the game offering fans of first person shooting games a little classic shooting action.
The Bounty Hunters Panel is one of the best new features in Sift Heads World - Act 3 because it allows you to see the top ranked players taking part in the game. The toughest, richest and most accurate bounty hunters are all shown which offers more experienced players a new goal - get into the Sift Heads World Hall of Fame. This is something that most first person shooting games offer that has been sorely missing from this series so far. All statistics are saved in the Sift Heads database which allows for an accurate and up-to-date hall of fame. This might not be of much use to beginners who are just getting used to the game but will be a lot of fun for more experienced players looking for a bit of bigger challenge.
The World Map has been updated in Sift Heads World - Act 3 as well, but you'll notice some of the territories are still locked at the end of the game. Fear not - these territories will all be unlocked by the time you complete the final act and there is a possibility that more territories will be added in the future. The World Map is a great way to track your progress and see how much further you have to go. Again, beginners may not get much use out of the World Map in the beginning, but the longer they stick with it, the more they'll find themselves revisiting this feature.
In Sift Heads World - Act 3 you are re-introduced to Darwen - an aging weapons expert and close friend of Vinnie's who can modify any kind of weapon. It'll cost you but it'll also be worth it. If you're a long time fan of the Sift Heads series, you'll likely recognize Darwen from Sift Heads 5, but he hasn't reappeared again in the series until now. Basically, Darwen is your upgrade shop. Those familiar with first person shooting games are likely familiar with upgrades as most games offer them, but in this series, your upgrades have more or less been confined to buying new weapons. With Darwen you are able to upgrade even your basic weapons to be more powerful and deliver more damage. Again, this isn't going to be unfamiliar to those familiar with first person shooting games and most will likely find this a welcome addition to the series.
Likely the best addition to Sift Heads World - Act 3 is the ability to use stealth in certain missions. Many fans of this series have long pointed out the game would be much more difficult, and therefore much more entertaining if stealth was added to the mix. Many other first person shooting games online offer this option and make it a necessity if you want to pass the mission in the game. Sift Heads has heard the suggestions and added it to the game. In some missions in this incarnation of the game, you'll need to stay hidden behind an object and wait for your time to strike. You need to be careful. If you strike too soon, you'll be in a world of hurt. The new shooting range is also an excellent idea, allowing beginners to sharpen their shooting skill in a classic skeet shooting type game in which you are given twelve plates to shoot at (released three at a time) and challenged to shoot as many of them as you can. Well worth checking out.
For fans of the sift Head series, one of the most enjoyable aspects of the game has always been the mini games within the game. The makers of this series have not ignored that fact. In fact, new games can be unlocked as you play adding a whole new level of enjoyability to the game. The game system in the safe house is still in working order with all new games added that you can unlock as you progress. See if you can get a high score or just play to kill a little time. This portion of the game is a big part of what makes this game so engrossing. Instead of settling to be like other first person shooting games in which your goal is to simply take out as many bad guys as possible, this game seeks to be a fully functioning experience that appeals to everyone. The mini games just serve to further that purpose and give fans of the game one more way to enjoy the experience.
Overall, Sift Heads World - Act 3 is one of the best games in the Sift Heads series and one of the best first person shooting games online. The costumes, the upgrades, the mini games, the difficult missions and the excellent story this game offers all combine to make one of the most addictive and all consuming first person shooting games online. While beginners might have a hard time even making it to the safe house, there are cheats you can use to make it a bit easier. The truth is, though, without fairly decent shooting skills, even the cheats may not be able to help you. Input '657' to bring up the cheat panel and type in the cheat you want to use. 'Revive' completely replenishes you health, 'reload' fills up your ammo and 'perso' allows you to play as a different character. All of these cheats are great but won't do you much good if you're killed before you can bring up the cheat panel. More experienced players likely won't need to cheat as the shooting may be a bit on the easy side for them, but the rest of the game more than makes up for the lack of difficulty. If you love this game, make sure you check out the rest of the games in the series - they're well worth the time.
