Hardcore mode was a joke, the start was a bit rough but within an hour you have so many ways to kill or tackle objectives its completely unfair to the enemy, I mean your pretty much a superhero in the game, there are just so many tools/weapons/options available to you, honestly nobody should get stuck in the game. If your having trouble, take a second a rethink things, tackle it a diff way, the game is a blast but even on hardcore there was pretty much no challenge. Your just to overpowered because of all the options at your disposal.
The only thing is it is extremely time consuming to platinum but that in no way equals hard.
I don't understand the people that get on these difficulty rating threads and rate a game ridiculously low and then go on to brag about how they never had any trouble and that hard was a joke and on and on and on. Congratulations if you're a master gamer who laughs in the face of any challenge that's thrown at you, apparently to flex your figurative muscles you have to get on here and rate the game in such a way that it displays your superiority over the rest of us. I haven't played yet on hardcore, I have been doing my first runthrough on normal. I have every trophy except those for Experienced and Hardcore completions, and I want to complete every location before I play the story at the harder difficulty. But let me tell you, when the amount of chaos you cause gets higher and higher, the military reacts accordingly and you fight more and more guys. I've encountered a group of three helicopters just for causing chaos in a frickin' village. So maybe you just stopped after the regular missions, but for those of us who are playing to get the full experience out of the game, this is not a 3 for difficulty. It's nothing impossible, but it ramps up to at least a 6. I mean if you reserve the 1 and 2 difficulty spots for kids games, then 3 has to be the adult games that are throwaways like Terminator, so an actual challenging game like this can't be lower than a 4/5. Come on, rate them properly.
That's all. You can take the soap box back.
