I decided to start capturing clips this play through for a few reasons. One, I'm finding Hardcore so far to not be much if any more challenging than Hard was. Two, I found ways to play many parts no scratch, this vid contains two of them. Three, many have been complaining that Hard is too difficult, but I get the feeling they've not explored all the possible tactics.
This is the last half of Chapter 7 in the favela where it culminates in climbing the hill to Serrano's hideout. I had to use Fraps because DxTory has some problems with this game. I managed to get through using only a few painkillers. I probably could have done it with only one had I done a dive just before the last molotov was thrown at me and shot the last two guys I took out with shoot dodge. As a result the last dash to the gate of Serrano's house was a bit clumsy with a concrete smacking headache, but what's a video withiout some humor.
