I don't think the game would be that fun on easy. The difficulty is the allure. I think this game appeals to older gamers from the NES days like myself.

Agreed, TheEnigma313. Nintendo Entertainment System games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Battletoads, RoboCop and Bayou Billy basically turned me into a meditation master of patience.

If met with the difficulty choices of 'easy, normal, hard, and extreme' I pick normal ninety-nine percent of the time. Easy just kind of makes me feel like I'm five, and hard is just slightly annoying enough that dying starts to take me out of the immersion of the story.

Later play throughs might include tougher difficulty to get trophies, though.
