So far, the only thing Hardcore has been is just a showcase for the many flaws in this game.

I'll just be glad when I'm done. This game's SP got really boring, really fast.

Hopefully they'll patch MP. Looking forward to that.
The game isn't flawed but finding it boring is just a matter of perspective.

It just means the game isn't really the one for you.

AGH! I still cannot do 2-(level where you first meet the blade shooting robots). Those sentinels are such a pain. If only they gave you a visual clue of where they were, because even with the R-Stick you can't see them hiding off screen.

Being flawed and being boring were two different points of my post.

It is flawed, but that's not why I find it boring.

I just finished Hardcore, netting my last achievement on this game, the sentinels and even the frigging floor monitor guys were way too frustrating, glad I don't have to play this anymore, no DLC please ^_^

GROAN! Still can't do this level. The laser bots just seem to do whatever the hell they feel like doing. Like just now they flew in as normal, but one of them just sat there for like 20 seconds firing a constant beam. I thought "uhh okay weird" so I just tried to jump over him but he suddenly went into his "flying away mode" and suddenly flew BACK into the place he was and zapped me with ANOTHER laser!

I beat the game on hardcore a few days ago. It took me about a day.

Some parts where amazingly annoying.

The sentinals were not that bad, you learn there patterns and the "safe spots" to stand quickly.. But they were the most annoying part about hardcore.

Ugh, I'm stuck on the Stage 2 boss right now. I can get past the first stage soo easily but he keeps jumping into the air randomly on the second part. :x

Stand as close as you can to the lasers. He should jump well before he gets to you, giving you enough time to get out of the way.

harcore mode is actually pretty easy....I'm suprised people find it difficult..I guess I'm just used to "real difficult" games like Ninja Gaiden II, FIFA 08, Lost Planet, etc....

I completed this game in a day or two....GREAT GAME THOUGH

what is the point of beating the par times?
Do they unlock something?

I'm having hell just to complete 2-6 now with the freaking sentinels.
EDIT:Stuck at 3-17 now
EDIT 2: Finally did it!!

I'm at 3-5 currently. Almost there, just have to settle another 14 more levels, but I should get it some time next week. (since I'm working on 53,595 kills in L4D)

Edit: I would also like to say that I don't really have a problem with the sentinels. I just memorize thier pattern and hopefully I make it to the end.

Update: Finally beat hardcore today. So now, I'm a happy beaver. I just got to get all of the single player cakes, complete multiplayer mode, and multiplayer mode cakes.

Just finished Hardcore mode yesterday. The final non-boss level 3-17 took me two days and probably about ~40 tries.

Now to finish up the multiplayer achievements. My girlfriend doesn't like the game anymore, so it'll have to be online...

Well I guess I can add my name to the list. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but there were some frustrating points. I got through 3-17 on my third try.... But it tool me a number of more tries to beat the final boss. Does anyone else find it annoying that you are forced to watch the cutscenes over and over when you have to restart?

Man, i hate HATED HATED! level 2-6 . I must have died on that level more times than i did the entire rest of the hardcore campaign. 3-17 was a little annoying as well but not half as annoying as 2-6. Oh ya, and i also hated level 3-9 on multi-player, especially the part where you had to jump up the side wall, get the cake, jump over to the left platform, hang on the ledge to have enough splodes to jump on the NEXT left platform. Then me and my co-op partner had to both activate those devices at the same time and THEN splode into each other to get to the next checkpoint. God, i dunno which level i hated more come to think of it .

Yes that was extremely annoying. I had to watch that damn cutscene on level 2-6 like a billion times. Also on the second boss fight. Luckily i killed boss #3 on my second try so that wasn't too bad.

It's not quite as bad as it's made out to be. Some parts get annoying, such as having to watch the same cutscene several times and trying to get past the slow-dropping barrels (just clear cache and re-download the patch later).

Okay. RESPECT to all people who actually got that achievement. I barerly made it through the campaign on NORMAL...

Man, I was so happy when I finally got past the second world, imo that one has the hardest levels of the entire game. The last world also has annoying ones, but for some reason, they are just extremely lenghty.

I absolutely suck at this game, but I DONT know what people hate about SENTINELS. I hated the long LIFT parts in the second world, where you have to splode from moving walls, avoiding spikes, lasers and using barrels while maintaining enough energy to splode again and having perfect timing and placement. Did I mention the rising spikes from below the lift?

This game made me SPLODE, and had more than a few arguments with my folks about my frustration. They were also happy I finished and got the achievement.

The so little room for variation in user-input made this game a living hell just after the first boss. You might as well let a machine play the levels, and you are guaranteed a win, even on hardcore.

People hate the Sentinels because they can sometimes kill you from off-screen. And every so often they can actually shoot THROUGH the walls and kill you. You must be very lucky if this didn't happen to you that much, cause just about everyone i've talked to has complained about this in one way or another.
