What are the difficulties of each Mass Effect game?

ME1 Insanity is definately easier with a high level character. Not to say that it can't be done from level 1...its just tedious and very cheap until you hit level 30 or so. Keep in mind that on Insanity in ME1, almost every enemy spams Immunity unless you can throw out Dampening and Singularity quick enough.

I better start my insanity run soon. Those achievements have been blank all these years! ME2 and 3 I already maxed out. Not Omega tho.

I personally find Insanity in ME2 easier than ME1. At least in ME2 you can rely on skillful use of your abilites and the abilities of your teammates to win battles. Everything in ME1 is a battle of attrition; Singularity > Dampening > Warp > Overload > Grenade > Sabotage > hold RT > repeat until enemies are dead.

A lot of people will say that Adept is "easy mode" in ME1, but really the only power that makes Adept so great is Singularity. I prefer using a Soldier with Singularity on ME1 Insanity so I have access to as much damage resistance as possible.

Lift would like a word with you, Singularity doesn't affect Geth Armatures, Lift does. Then there is also Stasis with the Bastion Class Specialization.

Throw in Marksman and the Adept is capable of crowd controlling everything in the game and slaughtering it due to how OP pistols were in ME1.

Also if you try to pull the "cooldowns" argument for powers in ME1: Savant Amps, and Armor Upgrades that reduce cooldown time plus getting the master versions of all the powers and the cooldown bonuses from Spectre Training and Adepts class passive make that a non-issue.

@Aigonroth

I will agree, Adept is definitely up top at one of the OP classes in ME1.

However, I will still say that the Soldier is definitely the most OP, since it is practically unkillable if specced right.

Uh, didn't we have this discussion before?

The power curve in ME1 is crazy, you go from facing enemies that can restore their health and negate nearly all damage to being able to tank anything and effortlessly disable nearly any enemy.


VERY true.
