Getting 5 stars is based on points. Try to get the most points you possibly can in a mission, and understand what gets bonuses for which missions. Deadlines, for example, award you bonuses for getting through the mission with a lot of time remaining. Elite gives you bonus for not taking damage. Covert gives you bonuses for not killing enemies. Other than Covert, there's a bonus for killing all the enemies in a mission, so make sure you get everyone in a mission when possible. Usually, when you finish an objective, the game spawns enemies in the surrounding area, so keep an eye on that.

A_Tennis_GiraffeDo you know if there's anything else that determines how many stars you earn other than just overall score?
I got 97,802 on mission 17 but only got 3 stars.
On mission 36 I got 140,821 but only got 2 stars.
I always used the recommended operatives for each mission.
Anyone able to shed any light on this? I thought I did mission 36 perfectly (all stealth, although i didn't get the kill them all bonus at the end so must have missed a couple of enemies) and was totally shocked to find I only got awarded 2 stars. The only thing I can think is that I did keep reloading my checkpoints when I messed up and got spotted.

The only thing I can think of is that the EU version of the game may have different requirements for stars than the US version. For the US version, it's completely based on points.

Also, maybe the EU version has different score requirements for each level.

A_Tennis_GiraffeHmm ok, that did briefly cross my mind actually, but then I couldn't understand why it would be any different being the exact same game. I guess I will just have to keep trying then and maybe try some different tactics to see if it makes any difference.

Check the manual for the game and see if it says anything.

I'm gonna increase the scores in the solution just in case.

Alright I changed the scores for 17, 33, and 36. Try shooting for those new numbers.

A_Tennis_GiraffeOk, finally got it done!
Here's the scores which got me the 5 stars on those missions mentioned above, just for extra reference for anyone else reading -
Mission 17 - 131,366
Mission 33 - 161,253
Mission 36 - 273,587
So those numbers you've changed them to definitely seem closer to the mark :) Well they were for me anyway!
