Here's a thread for all the XBOX'ers on MacRumors who have 360's: I beat GOW on Hardcore tonight, the second time I played the game through. The game launched in Vancouver a day later than in the US, so I read the reviews before I bought it which told me that the single player campaign wasn't long. For that reason I decided to play it for the first time on Normal and then play it again a couple weeks later (after finals) on Hardcore. Have many of you played the game through on Hardcore? I found that the greatest difference between the two was the fact that checkpoints were much harder to obtain on Hardcore. The game would benefit, in my opinion, from a user controlled save procedure when on harder difficulties. I just found that I got really frustrated in a few spots when I would die JUST before obtaining the next checkpoint, and have to replay an extended section of the game several times over. I know that it's not supposed to be easy, I just wonder if anyone else got frustrated at times with this format. Has anyone played much on Insane? I guess my brother and I will play that when he's done his semester.
