So, how hard is Legendary?

Just curious as to how hard legendary difficulty is.

What do you think out of 10? (1 being easy as chips, 10 being hard as...fudge)

Id say 8/10. Hard if you dont know what your doing, still a challenge even if you do. (much easier in co-op)

Ive beaten every halo on legendary and must say this ones probably one of the hardest.

Harder than 3 and Reach for sure. Limited health packs, an insane amount of enemies even early on. All of them are bullet sponges too.

9/10 Very hard, one of the hardest FPS's I've played on the 360. Playing through the 2nd lvl without a warthog on legendary is NOT recommended...

It's okay in co-op but I found it quite tough in single mode. First level kind of tricks you because it's not very hard, but the others are a pain in the ass on legendary .
All in all I would give it 8/10.

It should't be any harder than it was 10 years ago.

If this is the EXACT Same game from ten Years ago, then Legendary should be a Piece of Cake. After Playing Halo 2 on Legendary, Combat Evolved is nothing.

Aye, but Halo 2 was a shoddy game. HaloCE was still insanely tough on legendary.

It's hard, but much easier than I remember back in the day. I feel like a seasoned vet now. Some of these achivements are quite the challenge though.

Same, well at least for solo-Legendary (which I'm doing with this).

I love this campaign so damn much!

Really? Why the hell did they take off some checkpoints? You've already passsed the hardest stage which was Truth and Reconciliation if I remember so everything after that should be easier.

It seems the Bandana Skull will help a ton with some of the difficult parts. Also, the pre-order skull has been helping me, too.

I beat the original on Heroic and started it on Legendary but never finished it. I don't remember the name of the third mission but I got stuck at the part where you are on the ship and have enemies coming in through different doors. It was very hard because of the cloaked elites and the two hunters. A friend of mine beat it on legendary by himself and I did see the extra ending. I wonder if they left that part in.

Wow, I feel lame... I couldn't even get past the first level on legendary... haha, I only tired for about 30 minutes but that was all I could put in at the time. I love this campaign and I want the 2nd Halo remake too for xb360. I would realistically believe 7/10 becuase im kind of a new gamer and I find things harder to do than the more experienced gamer.

Will the solo legendary achievement unlock if you have helpful skulls on?

I found it pretty challenging last time I played the campaign, but that was before I became as much of a gamer as I am now. Not expecting too much difficulty, after all I've had years of COD Veteran runs now.

Note: Bandana skull also gives you infinite grenades. This makes a Legendary run very easy. That and Boom - explosions are twice as powerful - make it REALLY easy to breeze through tight corridors. Just back up or boom goes the dynamite.

By the way, I love how Elites crouch and throw you off then sidestep to cover. Miss that in later entries. They sort've do in Reach, but they're slow in comparison.

Damn purple Elite's are little sneaky bastards. They'll hide from anything, crouching behind cover lol

Yeah it's really not hard. I did the Overshields are for Sissies, Walk it Off, and He's Unstoppable on my playthrough of Pillar of Autumn with only a couple restarts. Just take your time and whore the plasma pistol and you'll be fine.
