Excellent guide will come in very handy when I try for the impossible achievement.

Awesome, am heading into the final level and these tips for the Hive Mind will come in handy. Have been using solely the plasma cutter, with the Contact Beam in inventory for ammo drops to sell. Haven't even purchased anything else but am considering the Pulse rifle now as backup.

That trick with shooting the flowers until 1 hit will kill them when you get picked up...wish I had of read this when on my first playthrough LOL!!! I got chewed on sooooooo many times....

Thank you for this guide.
The Impossible achievement was the only one I didnt get when I played this originally. I had played thru the first chapter and thought it was gonna be hard as crap.
I came back now and did it.
It seemed alot easier, maybe I got better at games-idk.
Either way your guide helped me, thank you.

This guide saved my bacon so many times it is not even funny. it only took me 15 hours and 15 minutes, and that is with 10 deaths in the game total. Heck the hivemind at the end didn't even cause me any damage at the end. At the end I even had 415,345 credits, 35 power nodes, 25 large med packs, and 5 peng treasures, as well as a fully upgraded: line gun, force gun, pulse rifle, and plasma cutter.

I can't wait until Dead Space 2 comes out.

The best way I find of completing Impossible the first time is to just use the Plasma Cutter. This limits you to only buying Plasma Energy and helps you to spend more money in Med Packs and nodes to upgrade your Rig and Stasis (which are crucial). In fact, I got the One Gun achievement and Epic 3 Tier Engineer on the same play through.

Sorry for the vague tip but if someone has already mentioned it then they know what they're talking about.

I thank you for the guide. I myself just burned through 9 chapters today, and will be sure to reference to this forum for Hive Mind help. On a side note I do find Impossible to be rather disappointing with the Brute seemingly still being a weakling. I mean the Leviathan was challenging. I'm using the Advanced Unitology Rig(Tank Rig), but I feel like I could use the Military Rig and still find impossible Disappointing.

Yeah I'm playing through on Impossible with only the Plasma Cutter for my first time too. It's not too bad except I can't seem to beat the level 6 boss for some reason. Guess it's because I mainly play Black Ops and just am not as good at DS as I used to be. Just plan to peng treasure glitch to get enough nodes to upgrade everything at the end of this playthrough and I should have 1k finally.

Very nice work on this guide! I'm playing through this game for the 3 and 1/2 time now, for the final run on impossible. I'm right at the leviathan, and I keep running out of ammo, so I'm trying out new things to get it done. I must say, the pictures and extensive break-down of each level is very good. As it has been said before, I find this to be one of (if not THE) best guide on this site. Keep up the good work, and hopefully I'll be able to beat this stupid boss on impossible. >_< Thank you for your tips and guide, and I hope that you will make another guide sometime in the future.

Great guide, thanks! I was having trouble with the middle of chapter 12 walking the marker through the bridges and getting attacked by all the slashers and lurkers. All I have left now are Maxed Out (easy) and Don't Get Cocky (IMPOSSIBLE).
