View Full Version : Which game has the harder difficulty???

01-22-2008, 05:41 AM
I usually don't tackle games on the hardest difficulty level, I guess I like to avoid the frustration. But I want to hear what you guys have to say about some games I've heard have given people some difficult times and how each has that one level or two that's really makes you want to throw your controller.

If you pick other just say which game and make sure it's for 360 obviously.

01-22-2008, 05:46 AM
Now granted I haven't played GRAW or Lost Planet, but of the others I think RS:V is the worst. It's the only one that I turned on realistic and just said "F it!"


01-22-2008, 05:48 AM
For me it would have to be Call of duty. On both 2, 3, and 4 I had to many occasions to name where I wanted to pull my hair out playing on Veteran. And I always here people talk about how playing on veteran isn't that bad or how they didn't have to much trouble with it. So maybe I just suck at Call of Duty lol. But either way, it's Call of Duty on Veteran for me.

01-22-2008, 05:48 AM
I've beat Halo on Legendary and beat GOW on insane. I can fathom beating COD on veteran. Without having played any of the other ones mentioned, I'm gonna say Lost Planet on Extreme. From what I've heard, only a few people can tackle that game on Extreme.

01-22-2008, 05:57 AM
I'll agree that there are spots in each of the COD games on veteran that will drive you nuts. The frigging airplane level at the end of 4 is just stupid hard as is the Hill 400 level from COD 2. I've got Lost Planet somewhere in my GF queue, maybe I'll get to see what everyone's going on about soon.


01-22-2008, 06:02 AM
Hands down it's COD! Veteran on COD2 kicked my ass, and i'm starting COD4 in the next couple weeks. From what I have heard that Mile High ach. is a beast!

01-22-2008, 08:42 AM
insane on GOW was not even that hard.....heroic on halo 3 was harder than that lol. However, I thought extreme on lost planet was the worst thing to happen to me that is game-related :( i was going to pop a blood vessel while playing that game, but luckily i returned it to gamefly before that happened.

01-22-2008, 08:58 AM
I agree, GOW insanity wasn't much to write home about at all except for maybe the final boss. I got tired of trying and just hooked up with someone to coop it which made it incredibly simple.


01-22-2008, 09:10 AM
For me its Lost Planet. Tryed it on extreme and gave up after a couple of minutes.

01-22-2008, 09:16 AM
I picked "other." PDZ Dark Agent Solo is way more difficult than any of those games, for one reason. No checkpoints or recovery items.

Id also put FEAR (original) not Files as harder. And doing all challenges on BF2:MC is more challenging.

Bullet witch on Hell mode.. nuff said !

01-22-2008, 10:00 AM
EDF is crazy difficult when playing solo on inferno.

01-22-2008, 11:21 AM
Just a few minutes inside Realistic and damn... I don't want to talk about it....

01-22-2008, 11:35 AM
I've beaten Halo, Gears of War, and Call of Duty 4. And out of those three COD was definately the hardest, it was semi easy then all of a sudden it would get to a really hard part that would have me screaming and don't even get me started over Mile High Club.

she haunts me
01-22-2008, 12:11 PM
I'm going to say the CoD series. Each title has a few parts on veteran that were extremely frustrating. I didn't like Lost Planet, so I didn't finish that game. CoD gets my vote.

01-22-2008, 12:49 PM
Halo 3, by yourself on Legendary with all the the skulls on, can easily become the hardest game here, but nobody would really do that...

So I chose CoD.

01-22-2008, 03:51 PM
lost planet extreme mode or call of duty 3 on veteran :mad:

01-22-2008, 04:18 PM
I'm going to say Call of Duty, But I would so Guitar Hero games on Expert, they take way to long to beat let alone 5*.

01-22-2008, 04:19 PM
By Far The Call Of Duty

01-22-2008, 04:20 PM
Guitar Hero III Expert, more horrifying than any other difficulty. Even COD3 Veteran was more sane.

01-22-2008, 04:21 PM
Realistic on R6:V is much harder because even Normal was tough.

01-22-2008, 04:26 PM
i went for halo on legendary, but that's with all skulls and solo. I'm attempting that atm. Oh it's fun (!)

01-22-2008, 04:48 PM
Its a coin toss between GoW and CoD4. I just beat GoW on insane and that was frustrating as hell doing it solo. As for CoD4 I'm on that last part of the sniper mission and I'm stuck because I get shot up when trying to pick the guy back up and put him in the chopper.

Siege Is Like
01-22-2008, 05:26 PM
vegas, hands down. vegas on normal could be considered a task to complete, less infact realistic. gears of war insane really isnt much of a challenge, halo legendary is a joke...the only thing even close is COD on vet...some missions harder then others.

I can't believe most people are saying Call of Duty. I'm guessig most people in this topic haven't played Lost Planet yet.

01-22-2008, 06:11 PM
Call of Duty Veteran gets my vote.

Get shot 2-3 times, dead. Reload checkpoint. Repeat until new checkpoint is reached.

01-22-2008, 06:35 PM
I voted for Call of Duty 4 although I didn't see another choice, which I'd have to say would be harder in my opinion, Lost Planet...that game was damn near impossible for me on Extreme.

01-22-2008, 07:04 PM
I can't believe most people are saying Call of Duty. I'm guessig most people in this topic haven't played Lost Planet yet.
completely agree with ya dizzy...gow was a joke halo wasnt too bad vegas and cod4 have tough spots but on that list imo lost planet is a total bitch

01-22-2008, 07:05 PM
I have to say that I have done Halo Leg solo and COD 4 is much harder solo.

01-22-2008, 07:09 PM
completely agree with ya dizzy...gow was a joke halo wasnt too bad vegas and cod4 have touch spots but on that list imo lost planet is a total bitch

Lost planet with out a doubt. I almost threw my controller out the window, I just gave up after that. If anyone here that said COD can beat Lost Planet in Extreme I swear I will give you a prize. All jokes aside.

01-23-2008, 10:50 PM
Who said Bulletwitch on Hell?? I beat that game 5 times within 15 hours, once on each difficulty.

COD is tough and frustrating. But eventually you move in just the right way so you don't get shot and you make the checkpoint. The game is hard in a cheap way where you feel like the game is cheating.

FEAR is tough as nails but never got overly frustrating. I enjoyed it that much. If I died it was because I made a mistake.

Gears is not hard.

Halo 3 is not hard with friends.

Vegas is very tough as well. Nothing that can't be done though.

Lost Planet is the only one on this list that I couldn't manage. Granted I gave up rather easily because I wanted to play something else but I will probably never unlock that achievement and it is not helping out my completion ratio at all.

Now if you consider "Other" TheLazyWolf is 100% correct. Perfect Dark Zero is the hardest game ever created. lol

01-23-2008, 11:27 PM
COD is hard, but its more trial and error than skill. Vegas is hard on realistic as well, but still very manageable.

Both these games if you play them with someone who knows there shooters they are EASY. But I am trying to help a friend through Gears on insane at the moment and he is terrible so its unbearable to play. When I did mine I did it with a bunch of guys high up on the FPS leaderboard so they were very easy.

Fear is hard, but I can do FEARS. I'm actuality doing my cousins atm. Apart from those IA maps. The first one's was ok, but subway. Eugh horrible. The first fears campaign is harder, the IA maps are easier. Percius mandate and extraction point are not bad at all. The IA in files is worse though.

And doing all challenges on BF2:MC is more challenging.

I'll second that. I got an 8 in one challange. Left it at that.
I got told lost planet was so hard I never even tried it. Yes I am a pussy. But I have been told by lazy wolf, and others that PDZ on dark is pretty hard. But a friend of mine did it on dark agent and said its not a problem if you know the tricks. And he couldn't beat Fear- IA 1-Distribution on low difficulty.

01-23-2008, 11:34 PM
I would say lost planet is very hard.

01-23-2008, 11:42 PM
Lost Planet takes this one easily. I didnt even try to beat the game on harder difficulties since it was so difficult to properly maneuver around the levels and collect ample energy and ammo. The only reason people are voting COD series is due to its popularity.

01-23-2008, 11:43 PM
ya call of duty is hard as hell at points like theres the parts where the enemys are infinite took me awhile to figure that out and annoyed me to death

01-24-2008, 06:07 AM
I've only played Gears, Halo, and GRAW from the list but I didn't think GRAW was that hard on the hardest difficulty, Halo was a little harder, and then Gears.

01-24-2008, 06:18 AM
Definitely Call of Duty, the Mile High Club makes me wanna punch my TV.

01-24-2008, 07:39 AM
CoD series is easy, i Choose others becouse PDZ is harder than those here.

Dawn Zombie
01-24-2008, 08:19 AM
Without hesitating, it's Lost Planet on Extreme. Leave it to Capcom to make difficult, yet enjoyable games. Gotta love them hard games!

01-24-2008, 10:43 AM
I did one misson on Lost Planet, highest difficulty...... and it wasn't too bad. RSV just sucked so i never tried the hard. GoW was a bit hard. CoD was HARD so thats why i voted for it.

01-24-2008, 06:34 PM
lost planet for sure.

my #2 would be gun on insane. that was a lot harder than i thought it would be.

01-24-2008, 07:48 PM
Rainbow Six Vegas on Realistic.. Without a Doubt!

Adam Miller
01-24-2008, 08:06 PM
Lost planet easily, and i prefer all the other games...

01-24-2008, 08:11 PM
From what I've heard (from a friend), because I haven't played that much of the game myself, Lost Planet - Extreme difficulty is a b!t#h. I find the most enjoyable to be the Call of Duty series though, they're great!

01-24-2008, 08:17 PM
Out of the ones I have played COD 3 gave me the most trouble

01-25-2008, 06:01 AM
Perfect Dark Zero Dark Agent. Absolutely a nightmare to complete even reach, we eventually got through co-op on Perfect Agent, spewing I didn't use my online profile.

01-25-2008, 06:35 AM
Depends. Rainbow Six is hard because the developers are idiots who care little for the finished product. Call of Duty is hard because, well, it's flat out difficult. Two hits and your dead on the later levels is just ridiculous.

01-25-2008, 07:06 AM
Call Of Duty!!

Rainbow Six Is Also Quite Hard!!

But OMG Call of Duty KILLS IT

01-25-2008, 07:44 AM
Lost Planet by FAR! CoD4 took little time to beat on Veteran, and I have seen SO many 1k's in CoD4 but have never seen a 1k in Lost Planet (in real life.....not leaderboards...)....Till I do it in the next couple weeks ^_^

01-25-2008, 07:48 AM
Lol i think something's wrong with me, i found Call of Duty Veteran to be hard, but not impossible. I'm trying to play Halo 3 on Legendary and i'm getting blown to hell every 10 seconds haha

01-25-2008, 07:55 AM
Try Lost Planet. Not sure if it's just level 1, but if you die, you start at the very beginning of the level. I haven't tried too much since that happened to me twice nearing the end of the level and I had to start all over, I was like "god dammit!!!!!!!" and then I just left it alone till next time. You may have won the battle lost planet, but I shall win the war!

01-25-2008, 01:15 PM
CoD for my vote. Don't think I've swore so much in life.

Plus it's the only game to have me on the edge of my seat during "one shot, one kill". Right at the end of the level when you have to wait out your pick up. Died two steps away from getting on the chopper!

01-25-2008, 07:17 PM
Should this even be a question? Call of Duty...hands down!

Dizzy Domes
01-25-2008, 07:34 PM
Lost Planet is so freaking hard. You have to basically run the entire level flawless. Not to mention the boss battles from hell (can't use mechs). Call of Duty (4 at least) was only hard during the timed missions (like 2-3 levels were hard). Lost Planet on extreme is basically a timed mission every level (11 in total). I still stick by what I say, that anyone who says anything other than Lost Planet has not played it on Extreme.

01-25-2008, 08:32 PM
Amen. I only need 2 damn achievements. Beat it on Extreme and collect all coins on all 4 difficulties in all different spots every time you play. Japanese like to make their games hard, and LP certain takes the cake here. Dizzy couldn't have put it any better.

01-27-2008, 03:17 AM
anyone who voted for anything besides lost planet has not played it. It is hands down one of the hardest games ever made (on extreme)

01-27-2008, 03:23 AM
I say COD4
1: most recent in my mind
2: No co-op
3:Its hard lol
4:Other games i havnt tried on hard or thought were hard.
(This is based on what ive played not what i heard, Ihavnt played all of these difficulies)

01-28-2008, 09:25 PM
Ugh, Cod's veteram. "You will not survive". Tis true.

01-29-2008, 01:06 AM
I beat Call of Duty on Veteran in a few days with some bumps in the road, but nothing too too bad besides Mile High Club. Lost Planet on the other hand I couldn't make it past the first level on Extreme when I played it at my friends. It's ridiculous.

01-29-2008, 02:39 AM
Well, I said GRAW but then again I suck at it, never beat a single mission on easy
Call of duty on Veteran is near impossible, I say near because Ive beaten FNG on it (no wait thats the training level)
My friend came over and when i came out the bathroom he was trying to play safehouse on vet he was like THIS GAME IS IMPOSSIBLE.

01-29-2008, 02:42 AM
I think i've heard Quake 4 on the hardest is really hard.

01-29-2008, 02:58 AM
I imagine that Halo 3 legendary would be very tough to do solo. GOW isn't really that difficult on insane except for RAAM... like some other people have said, I would have to go with GHIII on expert. The boss battles are insane (especially the last one) and the Mosh 1 section on Raining Blood and the opening riff to Number of the Beast kick my ass every time.

01-29-2008, 03:36 AM
wow, great thread. Personally I found vegas, halo 3 and GoW ok on the hardest levels, Cod 2,3 and 4 are still annoying me and LP was the most irritating 30 mins I've spent on the 360. That baby is back in its box and staying there :)

01-29-2008, 03:44 AM
Legendary on Halo isn't that bad really, or Insane on Gears. Veteran on COD4 definitely gives me some trouble though. 2 bullets = death :boom

wild dog
01-29-2008, 03:47 AM
Lost Planet without a doubt, You die within about 2 hits and the boss fights are impossible without the use of a mech.

01-29-2008, 10:44 PM
Call of Duty Series by far! I have gotten to points in some of those games where I actually have to stop playing it for a month or so because I get so frustrated!!!

01-29-2008, 10:45 PM
i voted rb6, but graw was 1.a. i'm surprised only 2 votes for graw. 1-2 shots, and its good night irene.

01-30-2008, 04:53 PM
I would vote Halo Leg in single player but it's a breeze in co-op.

The consensus seems to be Lost Planet based on number of votes vs. the relative number of people who've played it compared to the COD series.

The COD series is insanely difficult in places though.

Haven't even done the first Act in Gears yet on Insane, but is already looking on a par with COD.

01-30-2008, 05:08 PM
I have done the first level at my friends but I cannot do the second... or was it third:confused: anyway, its seriouslly hard, almost impossible! but im a noob so I couldn't do it if my life depended on it:p!

GoW - Insane = Easy

o0EVIL0o x360a
01-30-2008, 05:13 PM
Yeah, people who vote COD series must not have played Lost Planet on Extreme. COD is all about rushing to the next objective for a checkpoint and trying to survive long enough to get there. Lost Planet it legitimately tough, unlike COD which almost any gamer could get if they knew how to manipulate the AI and had some patience.

01-30-2008, 05:23 PM
VGA, can I add you on xbox and maybe play you on lostplane?

01-30-2008, 05:28 PM
I'd say that Halo's has the hardest and GEOW on insane is the easiest of the list.

01-30-2008, 05:29 PM

Trust me the game on insane gets much, much easier.

01-30-2008, 05:38 PM
Halo and GOW arent really too bad, COD4 has some hard spots but Lost Planet on extreme :| :| :| that is just stupidly hard furthest i ever got before giving up was end of the first mission lol its just insane!

01-30-2008, 05:38 PM
The Guitar Hero series on Expert was damn hard for me.

01-30-2008, 11:16 PM
Gears of War has a lot less votes than I imagined it would have had.

I sold Lost Planet a long time ago man.

01-31-2008, 04:50 PM
obviously Other, cuz NINJA GAIDEN IS not on the list :(

01-31-2008, 04:51 PM
legendary for halo...... shouldn't even be on this list

02-01-2008, 11:29 PM
Rainbow six vegas nicked it for me!

02-01-2008, 11:41 PM
COD4 - I've never been so frustrated at a game! I don't think anyone can say they didn't get frustrated during Veteran!
