Hidden Cheat

A single cheat, never unearthed before until now can be inputted when the PRESS START logo appears at the title screen. Simply enter this rather complex button combination stated below.

Password Input Cheat Effect
L1, L2 + Circle, R2 + Triangle, L2 + R2, Triangle + Circle, L2 + R2, L1 + START Lets you endlessly recover health in Single Player mode by pressing Triangle + D-PAD Left anytime.

It's a rather tricky combination of buttons to input. There is no confirmation sound, so the only way to test if you did it is enter single player and lose some health then press Triangle + D-PAD Left to see if it activated.
