LOL'd at the poll "Guardian Anel"

All of them were a breeze for me, and I did them all in singleplayer.

For me it was def Snatch. Insurance fraud was tough, but after I got the mechanics down, it was no prob.

All were very easy. Maybe Heli Assault? Or Mayhem? But only had to redo them like once or twice.

Heli Assault is frickin' EASY! Don't use the rockets! Just shoot them with bullets!

I hate escort, trafficking, trail blazing and insurance fraud.

I found them all to be rather easy, but I voted for Trail Blazing because that gave my friends the most trouble. What was the worst for me was Insurance Fraud in Multiplayer. The cars just wouldn't come, but in Single Player, they'd be all over the place!

Trail Blazing and Insurance Fraud were most definitely the hardest. Some of the Trail Blazing activities almost made it required that you take shortcuts throughout the city or else you wouldn't finish on time. Insurance Fraud was annoying because it's completely random when cars would appear and I'd always finish with ~5000 points left. Although, this was before I discovered the "dropping" glitch, where you could essentially gain points even after the time had expired by pressing both and over and over.

They were all quite doable except Escort. I already hated it in SR. Pain in the ass activity on higher levels. Also Trail Blazing (the very last and hardest one).

I would have to go with mayhem it was frustrating. At least in sr 2 you could find a good stop with load of fences.

Genki was such a good addition I loved it. Missed the sewage tank missions from the previous game though.

Insurance fraud and trail blazing hard? Feel for you guys, I blitzed the hardest on each first time of asking. Loved insurance fraud, just go to the blue markers and rack up the points. I managed to bounce off the same vehicle 8 times in a row whilst it was moving. Loads of cash to my target.

The one I'm having issues with is Snatch. Not done that or a couple of escort missions yet, as I've left them till last. Done all the others.

Cyber Trail Blazing or Trafficking.

Cyber Trail Blazing because the bike handling is ass in this game, and trying to drive the shittiest bike in the game in a half-pipe rather than flat road is just about the most terrible thing ever. The awful tron-inspired color scheme doesn't help matters either. Just stick to regular trail-blazing next time, as that one is both fun and actually provides a fair challenge rather than no challenge at all (Insurance Fraud, Mayhem, and Tank Mayhem are a few that are so easy that they might as well just give you the land, money, and respect just for pressing Y at the marker) or an insanely unfair challenge (like Escort, Snatch, and Trafficking, which I'll get to next). Cyber Trail Blazing is ass. It's the second most assy thing in this game (first is what they did to Johnny).

Now, Trafficking. What it comes down to is that your AI partner is just completely retarded. Get back in the car. No, get back in the car I'm sitting in. Great, you got downed by the enemies, now I have to get out and revive you. Okay, you're back up, so now please stop dicking around and get in the car. Okay, now our car got destroyed because you wouldn't get in it, so get into this new car. Come on, hurry up. Okay, you're in the car. Now drive the car. Not into the wall, use the road. Seriously, stop trying to drive through the wall. Okay, now this car is shot up too, get out. I said get out! Run away from it! You got blown up and need to be revived again. I can't get to you because of the fire and now I'm dead from all the enemies you wouldn't drive away from. This is total bullshit. I hate you, AI partner. I hate whoever programmed you to be so retarded. I hate whoever didn't properly test you and point out how broken you are. I hate whoever decided we needed not one, but TWO mandatory trafficking missions that I have to play in order to progress the story. I hate whoever is responsible for there not being a patch to fix this nonsense yet. I hate everything about trafficking and everyone responsible for its horribleness.
By extension, Snatch sucks because of the AI hating to get into cars. Stupid whores, get in the car already! Escort? I just really fucking hate when they randomly decide to send you halfway across the map so the stupid client can see the beach or buy a dildo or something retarded. That and when it throws the air time challenge at you in a place with no spots for potential jumps.

As for my poll vote, I voted for Trafficking because Cyber Trail Blazing was not included for some strange reason.

Surprised by all the complaints about Insurance Fraud here, though. Don't you guys know how to win? Just get on the highway and get hit by all the big trucks for huge distance and airtime. Once you have adrenaline, try to steer yourself into as many cars as possible before landing for huge multipliers. Same as SR2, fucking easy. Easiest activity in SR2 and it would be the easiest in SR3 if not for the addition of Tank Mayhem.

I was originally going to go with Mayhem... specifically the zombie level but knowing what I know now (blowing the propane tanks and other environmental items), I'm now going to with Snatch... the AI was frustrating most times than not.

Snatch has always been my least favourite activity of all three games, the toruble I had earlier on a Deckers one though today.....jesus, took about 5 tries to get not just me but both hackers into the car so I could go back away from the huge fight that started because they were too dumb to get in the big purple car.

2 come close to being the most difficult for me. The couple of hard insurance frauds, and 1 of the hard trail blazing on a quad.

The trail blazing is slightly harder though (I had to retry that dam activity like 10 times!. I'd keep running out of time about 2/3 of the way...)

Overall though, the activities on this are well easy compaired to saints row 1. (on sr1 the activities have 8 levels + the stupid ai... For example on the drug trafficing, you couldn't drive yourself, and for some strange reason the stupid ai would be driving AWAY! From the destination on the last few levels, so I'd have to run 1/2 way across the city with the fbi after me...) -_-

Same, never had a problem with Insurance Fraud.

Although I beg to differ about Trafficking.

It had its moments (like being surrounded by Morning Star cars as well as a brute flipping cars over on one particular mission, the Hard one for Zimos I think) but otherwise, it was still easy and the AI always got in and out of the deals and cars instantly then drove along roads and such.

The only hard part for me was switching quickly from my unlimited pistol ammo (which I used for 97% of Trafficking) to the rocket launcher to get the brute off my tail before he got too close.

Haven't experienced a single glitch on the game yet. I also don't understand the hatred for the game, I seem to be in the minority who love it and think it's incredibly fun just like the first two were.

Do Mayhem on that island before everyone turns into zombies, then it's so much easier.

You must have a magical copy of this game where the AI isn't completely retarded and for that I envy you.

They're retarded on Snatch (especially the Kinzie version with 5 Decker cars surrounding me) and taking ages to get into the car then when they do, I'm dragged out of it by a Decker so they also get out but otherwise, the game plays the same as the first two.

Like I said though, I have all activities completed and today have just finished The Ho Boat in the mission list so no more screwing around with anything other than the final 5 Gang Operations and all of the stunt jumps now.

Well, again, all I can say is that I envy your experience. They were completely retarded in mine and I failed too many times to count because the idiotic AI wouldn't get in the cars.

Gotta be insurance fraud for me, never managed to grasp it in all the Saints Row's, just can't seem to get the hang of bouncing off and into other stuff lol. Heli assault can be a pain if you blow something up to close to the car you're protecting but its not too bad.

The hard Trail Blazing was the activity that caused me the most headaches.

Three times on one profile, 35 minutes of playing, failing and retrying on another.

Otherwise I had no problems with it and I'm still horrified and shocked that Insurance Fraud and Heli Assault have so many votes on the poll because they're insanely easy.

Sure this is the Saints Row The Third forum and not SR2 cause I'd agree with it having 32 votes for being hardest activity if that was the case.
