Damn. I remember when this game first came out, I could blast through it on hard in my sleep... Now I can't even finish the first tour!
Honestly, A-wings with Adv. Missiles against a GUN? In the first tour? I don't remember that... --- GT: AnimaeMachinae Currently Working on: Blue Dragon 100% (850/1000)

Yeah the A-Wings always get me too. As soon as I even get a laser hit on 1, 2 others have locked on Advanced Missiles firing at me. --- Bender: You know, I was God once. God: Yes, I saw. You were doing well, until everyone died.

I seem to remember having to try and disable them with the gunboat --- This has been Fisting 101 with Bastard Poetry.

Yeah, hard mode just whoops my ass... Especially when going after the Bonus objectives. --- "If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words." Resident Child of Doom | LZA Founder - 2001

Let's face it, between games being easier today (with few exceptions) and us being older, the old games feel much harder than we remember. --- This has been Fisting 101 with Bastard Poetry.

There are some bonus objectives I never got, and I am convinced it is impossible to do so, particularly in the later missions. All primaries and secondaries isn't too bad, though.

I remember clearing the game entirely on hard and doing all the primary and secondary... and I remember repeating some missions a lot for the bonuses. Couldn't tell you for certain if I got them all or not. --- This has been Fisting 101 with Bastard Poetry.

I never really played on hard. I know some of the bonus objectives are different, but is it a lot harder than normal in terms of the AI pilots?

The are more objectives usually but I don't remember the dogfights being any tougher, just that there might be tougher targets in general. I have my CD still but lord knows how I dread attempting to make it work in Windows 7 --- This has been Fisting 101 with Bastard Poetry.
