Haha, that works too. I tried to do a lot of the levels trying to minimize casualties. Most of the missions were done without being spotted in an easily repeatable way.

But if all else fails, play it like Gears.

Finally a thread with only links. I hate when you click on any guide thread and its FUCKING FLOODED with embed YT videos, takes freaking forever to load everything.

Looking forward to your Hard run on the CEMETARY ENTRANCE level. I got problems with that, ended up shooting most of the bad guys with a +14.000 rating.

Yeah, I'm interested how you solve this...I tried many times but couldn't do it without one of the guards in the garden shot in the process (I told him to look away...but he didn't listen).

I actually just finished that on Purist without being seen. I should have a video up within a couple of days if you can wait that long.

@ OP: I should have a full Purist walkthrough completed within a couple of days if the last levels aren't too hard. So far I'm up to Skurky's Law. You can add the links of those videos to this thread if you want to. I have a thread on here that has them listed but may have been overlooked and not as tidy as this one.

Everyone should play without killing anyone bar the main target. Great way to play. Very hard but rewarding.

I saw this and thought you meant Countdown, which I found the hardest level to complete anyway due to the fact you can't really shoot enemies. So I thought I'd do that on Hard first, and did it easily

Then I thought of Blackwater and looked at this guy's guide and apart from a shoot up getting the retinal scanner, I did everything right first try.

This has got me pumped now, if I can do these two levels, I feel I can do any of them on Hard now and get my last achievement.

The walkthrough is complete. I'm quite pleased with my paths through the final levels, although there some casualties.

May re-do a few of the first levels in the near future.

Any chance someone could make a simple text guide for viable paths in hard mode for each level.

I have the a download speed problem with loading up countless youtube videos.

I just need to know what kills who the stealthiest and i can figure out how to deal with the patrols and such myself.

I'm sure someone could do it, but in all honesty in the later levels it would be really hard for most people to describe using text only as they can get a little complicated.

Thanks for the walkthroughs Maka. They're really helping me out so far on hard. Your videos are quite entertaining.

Video is the new medium. Text is outdated, and not as time efficient to create.

You can open the video and use the timelinks to get to a specific part if you like, and it'll speed up to process.

Otherwise, good luck trying to find text.

Below is what Maka doesn't want to have to do

I wrote it and it took me hours of time. But personally I think it would have been hell to make a video with all of that info.

Haha, no way do I have the attention span to create something like that.

In all seriousness, the entire video walkthrough took me about 20 hours of extra time (non-gameplay), but it's something I don't mind doing as much. When I type for too long or I'm tired, nothing makes much sense where as I've conditioned myself to edit video decently without needing any energy.

Some games are also much better at being portrayed through text. Never played Darksiders, but Hitman seems like a hard game to walkthrough with text, as there is so much waiting, and you are trying to show an exact pattern in enemy movement for the split second where you can make a clean break. I think a trying to follow text through this game would be more frustrating than doing it yourself.

Darksiders is kind of a free roam hack n slash with RPG elements. People have compared it to Zelda because of dungeons and puzzles. Very Prince of Persia as far as climbing and jumping along walls. It would have been somewhat difficult to do a video walkthrough because it would be a lot of stopping the video if you fell off or missed a jump.

Hitman is much better suited for videos, as you can just do checkpoint to checkpoint.

WTF!! Videos are so much better to understand, leaves no room for your own interpretation just tells what to do/where to go.

@Maka Thankyou so much for all the work you put in, i used your guides after i went through on normal and had no problems whatsoever

Thanks. I've had a few complaints about how there is no text walkthrough, but they don't seem to understand. Video shows you exactly what to do in a universal language. Text can be confusing, hard to edit, hard to understand, and frustrating to "bookmark" yourself while playing. Especially for a game like this, a step by step text guide would be useless, extremely long and most of it would just be explaining the enemy movement patterns.

Some people are frustrated that they don't have a computer somewhere close to their xbox, and obviously they can't print my walkthrough. People seem to always feel entitled to exactly what they want, and are quick to point out mistakes, when they don't contribute anything themselves.

I replayed the game over on Hard difficulty and still can't get the achievement. Do I have to stealth every level to get it? I just took my time on some of the harder ones by just shooting everyone.

They are indeed, but also depends on what it is for, for this Hard walkthrough, you need a video. Challenges - text is better.

A little example off how silly this game is,I needed to go through a staff entrance so I got a uniform hid the body and went to the door.Nobody could see my face all they could see was a big staff sign on the back off my shirt,that didn't matter because as soon as I opened the door everyone started attacking me because I was suspicious.How is a member off staff going into a staff only place suspicious,if disguises are in a game like Blood Money then they should work.
It really ruins the game and made it into a FPS,still its an easy 1000GS.
Know the feeling, wish it was more Blood Money for disguises and doing suspicious things, was there a detect meter being too close? Some levels, there is no point in having a disguise, other than to complete the chameleon challenge.

You should play your first playthrough yourself, experience it and have fun, not follow a guide on what to do, where to go.
