Is this game stupidly hard or am I just crap?

12 posts in this topic

I jumped on this game when I saw the high platinum percentage but I gotta say this game is stressing me out. 

 

I've max leveled two cops but the last mission in the casino is breaking me.  The survive 2.5 minutes thing is crap on normal let alone on nightmare.  Given the high rate of achievement on this plat I feel like I am doing something wrong, like it's not supposed to be this hard.

I also found this game incredibly frustrating when I was going for the platinum so your not alone :) I would suggest that you try and learn where the enemies are positioned throughout the level and also see if you can hide against a wall but still manage to shoot them as that can give you some good kills and stop you from getting killed yourself as this also helped me quite a lot. I would also say that getting your hands on an Assault Rifle is perhaps the best thing you can do as that will kill the enemies in one/two shots which is also a good way to help your ammo go further. I would also have to say that you should really try and learn how to play the game without the lock on feature as it is unavailable in Nightmare Mode and it can just make it even more frustrating when your reach Nightmare Mode. That's what happened to me and I had a harder time with the platinum than I should have done. 

 

Lastly, don't stress or rage at it. If you find it's doing those two things to you, then just come back to it later or watch a couple of videos and you will find that you will do it! :D I'm awful at these sorts of game so if I can do it, then you'll definitely be able to do it! Good Luck! :)

I did the same mistake with the thinking of the high plat percentage. Gave up on it. I try all the possible strategies s and hints but only to fail every time. The game did teach me something.....do some research and don't get fooled by the high % completion.:lol:

Best advice I can give you is to use the direction of the camera to aim, not either of the analog sticks. I got through all difficulty levels by making sure the camera was aimed straight and in the direction of whatever enemy I wanted to kill. This made it much easier to overcome what is either poor collision detection or just an artificially high difficulty. If there are many enemies that rush you, like on the last level, use the camera to track and shoot them. Trying to fine-tune the actual aiming reticle or character position will just get you killed.

It's pretty easy, or so i thought, try going for arrests more than kills, bait enemies round the corner and instant arrest.

Thanks for all the advice, I finally got it.  I can say for sure that my mistake was utilizing the lock on feature for my early play throughs.

I couldn't even finish the last level on normal. I felt so bad for not being able to. Glad I'm not alone, this gives me the confidence to pick up the game again and finish it. 
I heard that there is a glitch with the first level on nightmare as well, that you can be instantly killed there, but after that it gets better?
Hopefully when I fully upgrade the second cop it'll get better.

The last level is easy if you follow these tips

1. Get both cops leveled up and with auto rifle

2. Make sure you enter the last scene with both cops having auto rifles

3. Ignore the slot machines and go around clearing all enemies and picking up revive packs

4. After clearing the room and breaking the slot machines keep back at the spawn point let the boss run to you, stand behind the slot machines the waves of the enemies will then always come from North West or north east.

 

After each time you kill a wave the boss will always run to you and can be shot easy.

 

Hope this helps

The name is easy until you start hardest difficulty. My only tip besides one's mentioned is try taking one level at a time I find complete a level swap games has helped me. One day I'll get that plat one day.....

For me the hardest part are normal difficulty 😲 The lower Ammo and not knoeing the level kills me the most.
