How hard is HARD? Worth it?
 
Hey all.....how hard is hard mode? I know a good portion of the achievements are set for hard mode only......is it worth it, or is it so hard that it's not worth the trouble?

Thanks!

I'm now 2 chapters away from finishing it on hard mode. Some sections are really hard, because the checkpoint system is sometimes totally annoying.
Overall its a beatable game but with a good portion of frustration.

I am stuck (already) at the first Luminosynthetich reactor, directly after the fight against Filena. You have to jump and then run (with A) over a collapsing bridge to the exit. But this bridge simply breaks off too early! Is there a trick to it? On hard mode of course, on the other two difficulties, there is enough time.

I found the trachea level the worst on hard... after blowing all my ammo on the section when you get off the worm, the big spider boss shows up and I don't have enough ammo to finish him off! Overall its tough, but do-able on hard.

Trachea pissed me off a bit but Cavitas Cranii is the worst...so far.
The intense sections...and the "platforming"...are frustrating. The majority of the game on hard (if you follow the guide you can play MOST of it on easy and switch to hard when needed...I haven't been doing this) isn't that bad but they throw you into cheap situations here and there that will make you want to tear your hair out. On more than one occasion I seriously considered forgetting I ever played it and moving on to something else. I'm too far in though and I'd like to play it on a lower difficulty and see if it's any fun.

Update - It was a lot less cheap on easy (of course it was lol =P) just grabbed the trusty sidearm achievement.
I'm having an issue with the watchers in Trachea though. They zip by I barely even have a chance to get a shot off at them (the first 2 at least).

Yes, that level is very hard.
