Add Resonance of Fate and Devil May Cry 4 (Hell or Hell mode) Also, Dead Space 2 on Hardcore mode

Gaming1011520d ago

Hardcore mode wasn't that hard on Dead Space, or at least it should'nt have been, I had tons of health and ammo by the end, it just took the right strategy to get through - the hard part was the cheap insta-kills that are so hard to stay away from sometimes that set you back allllll the way to your last save - so frustrating! I died so many times after playing for 5 hours! So it was more unfair design that made it hard rather than actually challenging enemies.

I never bothered with Devil May Cry or Resonance of Fate, although Max Payne has proven to eb extra difficult on its hardest difficulty, I'm going through on hard on my first playthrough and its nuts! The aiming is too twitchy at times and too sluggish at other times, really hard to adgust it to make it work for you the way perfect aiming in Uncharted 2 (and now 3) does.

Or else many more games will fit inthe list for being frustratingly hard on their hardest setting like World at war with the dreaded grenade spam! That's not frustrating, that's juat plain stupid and lazy design-wise! SOCOM4 is extremely hard on elite too but that's also due to bullet absorbing enemies which just most of the time rush to your covers with their sponge body and not to forget their pin-point shooting accuracy from a mile away with basically any gun in the game!

KZ2 is a good example in the article for being challenging on normal and Wipeout too. Another game worthy of a mention over [email protected] is Motorstorm PR - It's simply brutal! You're given enough time to familiarize yourself with the vehicles and tracks but at level 7 & 8, the AI are simply crazy hard and brutal! I've given up on taking 100% gold in it long ago but 100% in the 1st game and Apocalyse are very manageble!

Yeah, all my friends ran through killzone 2 and it took me forever. I was having the hardest time. I found out that they were on easy and I had chosen the second hardest difficulty. I figured that u needed to do that to unlock elite but u didn't. It did help though for elite, as ultimately I'm the only one with the platinum. And waw was hard but not as bad as k2. I think Batman's challenge rooms for Atlanta asylum were tough too. The others I havnt played but I'd like to think I could do it. There hasn't been a game I have given up on because of difficulty. I did give up on lost planet 2 platinum...because I wanted to play another game last year, Lol.

Meh, I think the really hard games are the games that are hard, period. Not the games that if you turn it to very hard mode they'll be hard. But, of course, if they're tailored for harder difficulties, such as MGS4, then that counts in my book.

Didn't like the list, btw.

StraightPath1519d ago

i dont remember killzone 2 being REALLY difficult. I have platinum..was just same level as Call Of Duty veteran difficulty to me. I just ran through whole game MOSTLY knifing and running was a effective strategy. Only hard part a spent quite a long amount of time was the last part.

Radec boss fight was pretty difficulty. Other then that KZ2 elite was nothing hard.

100% demons souls made me sooooo mad

cr33ping_death1520d ago

ugh World at War on Vet.... every time i was near death and tried to hide i kept getting pelted with grenades forcing me to leave my recovery spot and get finished off by gun fire. but i eventually platinumed the mother f'r :)

spunnups1519d ago

im still stuck on that sniper level, getting head shotted through multiple walls is a little, idk.::IMPOSSIBLE?!?!

cr33ping_death1519d ago

thats nothing compared to some of the later levels, prepare to verbally abuse your t.v lol

Relientk771519d ago

World at War on Veteran

SUX

I died like so many times on the second level

sonicsidewinder1519d ago

Fucking annoying game. All the cod Veteran modes are. I only completed Modern Warfares. I tried (oh how i tried) to do World at War's, but fuck.

I got stuck at, i don't know...the game was shit and unmemorable, that castle, where you have a flame thrower and Jappos come out of trapdoors.

Impossible. There's no where to hide, and like you say, using cover just turns of AI's grenade spam mentality. Shit games.

cr33ping_death1519d ago

lol, yeah thats what i sounded like while playing that level :) i was like f' this game, this game sucks, everything but somehow i beat it. but your frustration is understandable sir.

soliduck1520d ago

I got plat on demon and dark souls, and im not bragging I think to much is made about how tough they are. If u play the game how your supposed to and summon co op help the difficulty is perfect. I think ninja gaiden sigma is the most difficult game ive played this gen. That or the starhawk horde mode. That thing kicked the crap out of me and my friends, even on medium difficulty.

DragonKnight1519d ago

Trying playing them without help then. I beat the game without co-op and only really summoned co-op for invasions. Ninja Gaiden isn't hard so much as poorly designed for the illusion of difficulty. Enemies can get away with stuff they shouldn't be able to, camera SUX, and there are too many restrictions. There are people who make Ninja Gaiden look easy simply because they know how to work around the feigned difficulty.

Omnislash1518d ago

I beat and platinumed Demons Souls and Dark Souls without any help or even touching online. Great games I loved them!

izumo_lee1520d ago

Killzone 2 on elite difficulty was murderous for me. I still have not killed Radec on elite cause of those rocket spamming motherf*ckers. Add to the fact that Rico is useless....yeah not fun at all.

Demon's Souls was hard the first time around but once you understand the enemies it got easier for me personally.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1/2 are only hard on Master Ninja difficulty. That mode is almost simply unfair. Add the challenge modes in Master Ninja it is almost impossible.

@ LordMe

I found Resonance of Fate to be pretty easy. There is a method in dealing with the harder enemies. It helps to upgrade your weapon with the right add-ons to maximize damage. I usually have 1 guy dealing armor damage & the other 2 to take out the life bars.

badz1491520d ago (Edited 1520d ago )

Even on normal difficulty! Die too damn easily for an elite soldier leading an army for a mission on a poisonous enemy planet! He's simply incompetent overall! What was the ISA thinking when they hire that clown?

It would have been much better if they let coop gameplay instead of stupid AI like Rico. I think it's the biggest missed opportunity of arguably among the best FPS this gen!

Knushwood Butt1519d ago

Yeah, I've yet to beat that last section too, and have tried many times. There's no doubt that it's rock hard, and Rico being useless makes it frustrating too.

NeoTribe1519d ago

Dude I hear u on the radec fight on elite. Took me forever to kill all his rocket goons. Finally me and radec are face to face, I'm beating his monkey ass up until I somehow blew myself up trying to finish him off with an explosive. I fired it right in front of a lamp or some stupid shit and blew myself up... I wanted to cry.... gave up after that.

Ultr1519d ago

oooh K2 elite is so much fun, had hard time with radec but beat the shit out of him! there are some good tactic tips on the internet! look them up!

Dark_Overlord1519d ago

Rico was very useful in the last fight with Radec, him dying let me know they were attacking from behind too :D

Azmatik1519d ago

KZ2 was aparently hard not for me though i honestly cant remember a game i played that was impossible oooo wit i think it was Bioshock i tryd platin it and its not happening beat the game on survivor difficulty WITHOUT saving LOL and the remake to MoH: Frontline i duno about u guy but just the first mission was hard as hell!!!!
