Is it tough? Sure. Is it impossible? Far from it. It's not as hard as people make it out to be, in my opinion.

But really, there's a few threads that kind of cover this in more detail. At least enough information to help make your mind up about it:

Well, it's not quite to the insanity of "Veteran" Mode on Call of Duty (well, COD 2 thru 5 anyway) ...but it is definitely challenging.

I enjoyed it a lot. It'll feel good once you get through it, so yeah I'd say it's worth the headache.

Cheers

In my opinion, its probably slightly less challenging than COD 3 and world at war's veteran. The checkpoints can be very long and heavies are extremely hard as well. The best part is no choke points with infinite enemies

i accomplished it without too much hassle. there were a couple of rage areas that are considerably harder than others but overall, not too bad

There are only a few stages that gave me issues. What I did was go at it from different angles until I found the one that got me through it.

CoD veteran difficulties are a walk in the park compared to this! Not once on any play through of any Cod game on veteran have I died so much and had to restart the same checkpoint twenty plus times!

This game is so based. It would be a walk in the park if you could just kill your AI partners like you literally kill thousands of other soldiers in this game, so that you could actually play "tactical" instead of having to babysit your two retarded friends.

"Squad shooter" (I think "Escort Quest" would be a better description for these games) and the only command you have is giving your squad an attack command, which 90% of the times makes them run into a turret or 20 enemies. You can't even tell them where to go, wtf is this?

The challenging parts are really frustrating because they are kinda "cheap" difficult, like finally killing those heavies and than being gunned down by enemies spawning right behind you out of nowhere, or having your AIs die from grenades/turrets or having 5 guys run into your position ... coz that's whats every trained soldier does.

But yeah, the story is a nice change at least. Unfortunately the gameplay can't keep up.

I had, well having, a harder time with this FUBAR than any of the Veteran play through.

Zero fun.
