before the update, I could breeze through Wey-Yu personnel like nothing....Now if I'm exposed for more than 3 seconds, my entire armor meter disappears and enemies take me from full health to dead in only a few hits
still not that hard, but made some moments (particularly with low coverage, like the derelict, annoying
I recently got the game and I briefly played trough the first mission, but by then the massive patch was already out. After applying the patch ( and an optional sweetfx mod that makes the game pretty decent looking and closer to the look of the original movie ) I played trough it and I kept on dying on several occasions, so I had to be careful and study enemy patterns and cover point. It was much more satisfying then breezing trough the game guns blazing as I was led to believe, it was actually pretty darn hard in some circumstances, and I had to switch to recruit on my first play trough !
So yeah, I can't compare it as it was before the patch , but right now, all considered, I don't get why this game is getting so much hate, it's becoming pretty addicting for me .
