...medipacks in every corner...a shitload of devastating weapons...more freedom to the player than the already smart enemy-ai can handle.....and youre through with the game in less than 6 hours with dying about 6 times total, spending more time running through the levels than actually fighting, dodging and using your brains to overcome certain obstacles/enemies.
dont you hate that ? wheres the fun with running and gunning through the levels without even worrying about ammo or death ? ok...there probably is a harder difficulty level.....AFTER you played it through the first time...so i am forced to play through the game only to finally have more fun with the harder difficulty level....well...thanks there are save-game-sites where i can get the 100% save-game-stat so i can enjoy the hardest difficulty from the beginning on.
i cant even count the games i found myself way too easy, some of them are just ok on harder settings but still not really that hard, CRYSIS 3 for example...a great game....but the pc exclusive post-human difficulty level isnt really that hard....thanks to certain weapons and all the gadgets of my nanosuit..of cours only if you really know how to use it all.
what i really hate are games with an unballanced difficulty, like LOST PLANET (the first one, havent played the others yet), i remember it being way too easy on normal, on hard it was just right..but then the endbosses were almost unbeatable on that difficulty, so i switched back to normal only to beat the endbosses while i bored my ass off through the rest of the levels.
max payne 3....great game, an ok harder difficulty level...with one flaw....the level in the hangar with that friggin shield-wielding cop....i almost spent more time beating that area than i needed through the whole game.
but after all i have to say...i prefer rather more difficult games than being too easy and getting through it too fast or being bored while running through the levels, and i have the feeling more and more games these days are getting way too easy
except for strategy games i start all games on the hardest difficulty and mostly those are ok then, while the normal setting is just plain boring mostly.
whats your opininion ?
