Dark Sector has got me stumped

Immediate Update: So the first time I tried after making this post, I figured it out. It turns out you have to go back out into a particular hallway, where an otherwise nondescript portion of wall has magically opened up to reveal a hidden passageway. I don't know whether to blame myself or the game for this, but at least you've gotten a rare insight into just how terrible I am at video games.

The game is probably too new for anybody to be able to help me yet, but I figured I'd ask. I am stuck in Dark Sector. Hopelessly stuck. As in, I've replayed the same part at least fifteen times and still don't even have the slightest idea what I should be doing. If anybody could possibly help, I'd appreciate it.

Here's the scenario: I've just gotten the glaive's shield power. There's a cutscene where I'm introduced to a character named Nadia. Immediately following the cutscene, I have 60 seconds to either escape the room, defuse a bomb, or maybe even do something else I'm not thinking of. There's a door that looks like the probable escape route, but there's no prompt to open it. I've searched for switches or buttons that might open it and come up empty. I can't see anything that might interact with the glaive. The route I took into this area is blocked.

I don't have any idea what to do. I can't even tell you how much time I've spent replaying this part. It's probably something obvious, but I just have no idea at this point.

Any more controller stress test results come out of this one?

Are you still stuck?

If you are, try this: Run past / kill the baddies and go back out the door you came in (IIRC you're facing it when the cut-scene ends.)

Go left and follow the corridor, when it dead-ends, there's an open door (which was previously closed) on the right wall.

You should see an action at the bottom of the screen, hit B and you'll climb in. Run to the end and you're safe.

Good Luck!

THE door inside that room isn't the escape you have to run in pick up the upgrade you don't have to kill all the zombies but spread them far enough so you can run through go thrugh the first door then look for the top part of a panel to be off then climb in and run to safety
