I'm not a hardcore gamer by any means, and I found hard, not that difficult. There were some places that made you figure out mechanics. (Ivy, I'm looking at you). But overall it was just figuring out how it worked. I played a bit on my wife's easy save, (maybe 10 or 15 min), then jumped into a hard run (she got the game for fun, so I felt the need to finish up the achievements).


The hardest part is figuring out the combat system. Once you get that down pat, the rest of the game is a breeze.

I remember me doing it without investing an excessive amount of time on it, and without too many frustrating moments. Like many have said, it's all about familiarizing oneself with the combat system. When you learn how and when to use a variety of techniques, as well as counterattacks' timing, bosses' movements, and stuff, you'll be fine. Far from being easy, but definitely not one of those games which make you give up on them. Go for it!

The Last battles are quite hard, because you cannot afford to make more than two or three mistakes, and there are enemies coming at you from every direction. It took some time even on normal for me, so hard is most likely out of an option.

I may be the only one but the two titans with all of the goons right before you fight Joker was about the hardest for me. Trying to fight goons off while getting a batarang shot in was a pain.

I'm playing this again on the PS3 for fun as I traded in my 360 version, I remember Ivy was hard for me on normal, got her coming up soon, doubt I will try it on hard.

I got through Arkham City on New Game+ though just about, but still.

I personally think it's one of the easier games to beat on hard.

I agree with you. This was by far the hardest part for me on the Hard difficulty. I died at least seven or eight times before getting it. Poison Ivy was more annoying than anything, but I only had to retry that one once.

For anyone starting the hard run through, I recommend keeping one armor upgrade for this double titan fight right after Poison Ivy, and maybe one for the Ivy fight. The rest of the game is a cakewalk if you have played Arkham City before this game (which I did).

Absolutely what he said. You really should have no reason to use an armor upgrade outside of a major fight. For the titans, the multi-batarang was really useful. It seriously helped my likelihood of tagging the titan while it was midcharge without having to stop and aim.

Seeing as I'd not long completed it on normal before my attempt on hard I felt I had a good chance at it. Definitely worth a go, the main game's a lot more forgiving than most I've attempted on 360 on the hardest difficulty setting. If you didn't get the restart point after the first time you take down Ivy it'd be a proper marathon as an example!

I think I maybe even read it on this site but if you save your armour upgrades for the boss fights (they replenish your energy when you use them) then you'll have a much better shot at beating the story. You only get four though I think. I had most problems with the fight with the waves of enemies and two titans shortly before Joker.

Bane is actually kind of easy on hard. Instead of fighting the henchmen I just ran around them/avoiding them with (A). The only thing I did what batarang on Bane so he ran into the wall. When his HP was down I hit him two times to remove his pipes. When trying this tactic I completed it on my first try.

If you already beat it on an easier difficulty, it is so much easier because you know what to do, and can't get stuck for too terribly long in 1 spot if you keep at it

Well honestly you can't really compare this game difficulty to a first-person shooter difficulty. To me it's the definition of a HARD difficulty, not too easy and not too hard either, well balanced. Once you get used to the combat system (do some challenges for practice) and know the strategy for boss-fights the game becomes even on the hardest settings enjoyable! Don't be scared of the Bat.

Well said.

I think this is the best Batman game. The games that followed seemed to have too many repetition in the combat and predator challenges and the tacked on MP on the last one was HORRIBLE!!!

I hope that the Arkham Knight next gen game makes up for that last one that was released.
