Should I get the collectibles on 1999 mode, or do 2 playthroughs?

I've already played this game once ~2 years ago, but unfortunately I wasn't into trophy hunting back then. I would like to finish this game up, but I really don't want to do another 2 playthroughs. However, if 1999 mode really is THAT hard, where it'd take more time to finish that run while collecting stuff, instead of doing 1 "speedrun" on easy, followed by 1999 mode, I guess I'd rather do 2 playthroughs.

 

What are your opinions? Is the difficulty exaggerated or is it really that bad?

 

 

Update:

I have now finished the game on 1999 mode, and it really wasn't all that hard. There were 3 parts that were kinda annoying and took me multiple tries, but other than that, it was smooth sailing. If you're wondering wether or not to start with 1999 mode first, or do 2 seperate playthroughs, it really depends on your playstyle. If you play slow and methodical, go with 1999 mode. As long as you pay attention and play carefully, you shouldn't run into much trouble. If you want to feel like a badass, and be in your enemys faces at all times, do 2 playthroughs, because you're gonna get wrecked otherwise.

I did only one playthrough for the platinum.

1999 mode isn’t that hard, you really should do the “Scavenger Hunt” trophy as well, it will save a lot of time :)

 

I used this video for the “Heartbreaker” trophy it is an exploit

It’s 1999 and not 1998

I suppose you mean the 1999 mode from the main game and not the 1998 mode from the second part of the Buried at Sea DLC.

 

I did two playthroughs, one on normal and the following on 1999 mode, but if you've already played the game in the past I guess it's okay to go straight for the 1999 mode, since collecting voxophones nets you extra money anyway, and you need to be thorough anyway with your search since you don't get a lot of money and you can't purchase things from the Dollar Bill machines (if you're going for Scavenger Hunt in the same run, which is pretty much garanteed at this point).

It really isn't hard. I also played the game a long time ago and just recently did the 1999 and scavenger hunt trophies.

 

Almost all of the hard parts can be cheesed in some way, so I'd say go for it.

Do everything in one go. All 3 Bioshock games are much harder during the first third/half of the game, then the rest of it becomes a complete joke. Infinite has numerous exploits and tricks you can use to make things much easier so there's no need to do 2 playthroughs unless you really want to take your time. The DLCs are harder than the main game in all 3 entries, with the horrifically bad Clash in the Clouds DLC for Bioshock: Infinite being the worst one in terms of both quality and difficulty but even that can be cheesed if you use the save scumming exploit.

Get the collectibles in 1999 mode!

I made the mistake on planning a 1999 mode and then do a collectible cleanip, and Lady Comstock beat the shit out of me, since I had shit gear and weak shield/salt.

I have now finished the main campaign on 1999 mode, and I'm surprised at how easy it was. I thought this was going to be a lot worse, but this mode was actually a lot of fun to play. There were only 3 parts that took me multiple tries (FUCK the last part), but other than that, I had no problems at all.

1999 is actually not that difficult.

I just finished it for the first time, and I didn't upgrade a vigor, or a weapon, or use a Dollar Bill machine.

 

You'll be fine

I haven't finished 1999 mode yet, but start with it.  It's not that difficult and much like Bioshocks 1 and 2, it gets progressively easier as you get more powers.  Honestly, the toughest part for me has been the rooftop level before the Order of the Raven, due to lack of weapons, ammo, and vigors.  Once I got past that part, I've been able to massacre most any opposition, by arming myself with Murder of Crows combined with Devil's Kiss or Shock Jockey for crowd control, then pick off any remaining soldiers with the Hand Cannon and/or the Sniper Rifle, while regularly triggering the Overkill gear stun effect.  I have a feeling if I had the Blood to Salt gear on top of all that, I'd be damn near immortal.
