How difficult is gold?

#1LV223Posted 2/27/2013 5:43:57 AM
Just got back into the game and haven't played since I first finished it. I'm going for all the achievements and am wondering if it is easier to complete every mission on insanity or to beat the original maps on gold?

Beating the original maps on gold will be quicker, and IMO, easier too.
Get a few people from here to help you. Shouldn't be a problem.

EDIT: I should clarify, gold enemies in MP are tougher than SP insanity enemies. Doesn't change my recommendation though.

I agree with Charon on this one, especially if you enjoy the MP. Quicker, and more fun than insanity IMO.

You might as well do the SP missions on Insanity, since beating the game on Insanity is an achievement anyway. Might as well get em both.

I think it's either finish SP on insanity or the six original maps on gold.

It's not just finish the game, I think you need to complete every mission as well. Priority, Side Quests, and N7 missions i believe.
