Is the difficulty really a 9 out 10?

4 posts in this topic

I'm in the mood to play Silent Hill 2, but I'm wondering if it's a good and fun challenge, or will it just be frustrating and ruin the game. I played the game a couple of times but I never played the hard mode, nor I ever cared about the rating/ending

 

I love this game (on ps2), so it would be nice to get the platinum

The Ten Star run can be annoying, it's pretty much the sole reason the game is a 9 but it's at least an 8 objectively.

The reason for this is that a ten star run involves putting together a number of annoying tasks- with no means of keeping track of them in game outside of the other trophies they unlock. In most cases you'll unlock these other trophies along the way, so you'll need to keep track of things like enemies killed/shot dead, stuff like that, on your ten star run. 
You also need to get good at an annoying and finicky boat minigame near the end of the game.

In my opinion, it's a 6 or 7 at most. The bright side about the 10-stars run is that you can skip the last two boss fights  and that you can save the game twice (unlike other games that need you to beat the whole game in one sitting, e.g. Max Payne 3). 

 

Just keep track of your melee and ranged kills and practice your route on previous runs and you'll be fine.

This was probably a 9 when the best strategies had yet to be discovered.

If you mimic a vid rather than try with your own strategies (I think I used the ones provided by the trophy guide) the run isn't so bad, I only failed a few times after my last save where you face 2 bosses before the boat minigame. I also messed a lot with the nurses and yet I got a 10 stars result with a good margin of damage taken allowed.

 

A great game I quite enjoyed.
