    The Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread


    Thanks to dsluckay for making this banner.

    This thread is first and foremost a discussion thread, but it also has a poll. Please do not vote in the poll until you have earned the platinum trophy for this game. That being said, we invite you to post below and discuss the difficult aspects of the game, even if you do not yet have the platinum trophy in your collection.

    When you post, give more than just a number. Give reasons why you feel the game is easy or hard. What parts of the game are easy or hard? Were there collectibles? Were they a pain? Is there a required online component? How easy or hard is the online portion? What is the most frustrating part about the game?

    Once you have obtained the platinum trophy, feel free to return to this thread and post your official vote. Say something to the effect of "I give this a 2 because there was only one tough spot and the collectibles were easy to find". At this point, you may also add your vote to the poll.

    The poll is public, meaning everyone can see how you vote.

    Obvious spamming will not be tolerated. Moderators will take action against obvious spammers as necessary*.

    *NOTE: This Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread and others like it constitute an Official Site Feature here at PS3T.com. Misuse of this thread or this poll may count as an abuse of a site feature which is expressly forbidden in the site rules. Moderators will give punishments as necessary.

    2 Easy The hardest difficulty setting can be tough if not careful but you can always run and hide and attack from different areas to make it easier. The bosses at the end can be a little tough but still this game can be platinum in a day or 2.

    I'll give it a 3 because some areas can be difficult to figure out. I'm not really one for running and hiding in a FPS. Once you master how to utilize the cloaking ability the game becomes a 2.

    3. Moderate

    The guide I used said this was easier than MW2 veteran, I call shenanigans I had trouble in the first two stages which made me lower the difficulty to normal and add a second playthrough. Once I learned the stealth tranquilizer approach the game got a lot easier which is why I voted 3.

    There's really no noticeable difficulty between Hard or Delta; when you first start out just play it on Delta. For anyone having EXTREME difficulty with it (and I've met those who say it's a hard game to play through) do this trick I heard about that I tested myself: hide in the bushes.

    Yup. Hide in the bushes. You don't even have to cloak. For whatever reason, even when you're running down the mountain from the aliens fighting alongside Prophet, if you hide in the bushes the aliens rarely ever shoot at you, let alone the Koreans in the earlier parts of the game. I tested it myself. Works better with the aliens though. So when in doubt... jump in a bush.

    Voted Very Easy.

    Was about a 6 hour plat, and nothing was tough in this one. The cloak is your best friend in this game. Make use of it and the game is a breeze. Very fun game as well, and highly recommended, on a price drop, of course

    2 - Easy

    I almost gave this a 1 - Very Easy. I guess the only reason I didn't was due to my own bias. I'm still really new to FPS so, Delta difficulty gave me some problems. Also, my computer was out for the time I was playing the game. I didn't even need to look up tips or a guide. I almost ed this game in one play-through. All I needed to do was choke-kill one more guy and kill 10 enemies with objects thrown. That took me all of 15 minutes to do.

    Once you figure out the cloak-and-dive-into-a-bush technique, you're golden.

    I'm not a fan of military FPS at all. I did not enjoy the first 2/3 of this game one little bit. It was boring and slow for me. I prefer FPS like the last 1/3 of Crysis. Given this, I would not recommend this game nor would I play it again.

    Moderate Couple of spots gave me trouble on this game. I kept trying to sneak thru the mine field on chapter 2 and blew the shit out of myself several times before I decided to just go thru the front door lol. The level with the tank, and the last level also had me stuck for a bit.

    This game was a bit different for me as far as FPSs go. I liked the wide open map and the options you had to freely complete your objectives. The cloaking, extra armor, super speed, all cool elements to play with. Also really liked how the attachments for the guns were done.

    The hide in the bushes tip was the best damn tip for me to read before starting this game. Thanks Penless!

    Isn't that hard just REALLY easy to make mistakes... and what point is it to have stealth mode if it doesn't work?! Trial and error is a no go in this game, getting incredible annoyed at the random enemies that can pop out of everywhere!

    I voted Hard. Borderlands is my gold standard of effort required to get the platinum.

    I'd say this is a 3. Delta is a little annoying and occasionally frustrating because of how enemies don't die even when you pound them with bullets etc. and I'm not a big fan of stealth. I don't like thinking in a video game (unless it's Batman or a puzzle game) either. But other than that I'd say the trophies are relatively easy to get.

    Easy: Didn't take many hours to finish. It's so nice to play a game without worrying about stupid collectibles. Having the "Cloak Engaged" gets you out of a lot of hot situations. Good shooter, 7/10.

    Moderate. I had to think about this for a little while. I almost voted hard because the last boss took me some time to beat. Since that was the only part that gave me major problems and the rest of the game was fairly easy that is why I vote moderate.

    It was a good game but nothing special to me. I have played better FPS's then Crysis.

    I voted 2 Easy

    There were a few spots that presented a little bit of a challenge, but overall the game moved pretty quickly on Delta. The only area where I got stuck at was the end two bosses, but after a little bit of experimentation, I got past it quickly.

    Easy - A few parts were frustrating when I first started playing on Delta difficulty, after Act 1 done. they all are pretty easy.

    I voted Moderate.

    I started with Delta from the start, and i played the 2nd game first, and i was expecting a completely different game than what i got with this.

    Only 1 tough part where i got stuck for a while, the final boss wasn't so bad, your cloak is yourbestfriend and hide a lot.

    Good game, prefer the second one though.
