    Just trying to get an idea of how good you are [​IMG] I didn't try easy, played half-way through on normal when I rented it, bought it and finished it on hard. Now I'm trying the toughest mode, and having a *really* hard time. I've been at it for 3 nights now, and I'm still with the Warthog trying to rescue the 3 sets of soldiers (I'm at the first set). So that should give you some idea of what I mean by a hard time.

    Also, if I get XBL and try Wolf or GR against you guys, it'll be good to have some idea of what I'm up against [​IMG]

    I beat it on the hardest but really, I didn't find it all that hard. It was just a matter of learning the basics of what the enemy does. I was a little disappointed how fast I went through it. This was just on single player, perhaps it's harder with coop on.
    Thanks

    I thought it was pretty challenging and I agree The Library may have been the hardest. The thing is after ur done playing on Legendary, its kind of a bore playing it lower diff than that. It seems like..."Hey....that's it?"

    Not I. I get slammed on anything but Easy. I can make it up until about the 3rd or 4th level on normal and then I just completely fall apart.

    OK, at least I'm not the only one finding it difficult [​IMG] I made some progress after I started this thread though, and I agree, a lot of it is figuring out how to beat the enemy. I kept getting stuck with low ammo, low health, and surrounded by the big blue guys.

    I got to like the third group of ppl on the same leve as you saurav. If i didn't have another game to play i'd probably give it an actual attempt but it's just not worth it for me.

    I do have other games to play, kinda. I'm in the middle of Buffy in Normal mode, and I can't get past the 2 shrimp monsters, I used up too many hellfire bolts killing shrimp monsters in the previous level. Also, Shenmue crashed after a really long cut-scene (the Kowloon thing) so I'll have to sit though all of that again. That's pretty much why I picked up Halo again.

    I need to buy some more games [​IMG]

    I'm a die-hard "Heroic" level player. [​IMG] Tried Legendary and got stuck right about where you got stuck.

    I can't imagine being in The Library on Legendary. Heroic is quite enough for me that, it's a challenge and not a total frustration.

    Once I cross over that imaginary line that divides challenge/frustration, I start thinkin' about quittin'.

    Normal and easy are a joke...imho. [​IMG]

    I've been toying with the idea of replacing the DVD drive too. Other games have been locking up and/or refusing to load.

    Replacing the DVD won't get "detected" as a mod and have my Xbox banned from Live, will it? Does that work similar to XP's product activation in any way?

    Halo was the reason I purchased the XBox. It's the first console that I've owned since the Atari 2600. (Yes that's quite a few years between consoles)

    From the very start I have only played it in Legendary mode. I always figure that if you are going to play a game you might as well play it on the hardest level possible.

    Even though I can complete the game anytime on Legendary mode I still find it a get way to kill a little time now and then.

    Can't wait for Halo2 this fall.

    I beat it on Legendary. If there's anything I've learned, is that part of what makes games hard is people's inpatience. Not saying that's what is afflicting the folks here, but if you follow the old saying, "slow and steady wins the race", you'll beat it on Legendary.

    Oh, and don't forget to use the butt of your gun more often. [​IMG]

    Slow and steady is right. Also, it was that difficulty that made me realize I have to use the Alien weapons which I have learned to love now.

    "Even a needler is more effective if you can sneak up on someone."

    The first time I played through the game (on Normal), I didn't touch the needler. On Heroic, however, I'm almost always carrying one around. I think it's one of the most effective weapons against the Elites. You may want to try using it a bit more often to see if it helps you advance...

    Oh yeah, I was also very, very conservative with my grenades. [​IMG]
