Hardest part in the game.

#1 Posted by Belonpopo (1823 posts) -

I beat the game on realistic on my first play through and I found the hardest part was in front of the White house with the gas tanker. I started counting after about fifteen minutes of fail and I restarted 56 times.

I found that part pretty straightforward. Then again I died multiple times in many parts of the games....I get a little too aggressive at times and make bad choices and find myself stuck between a rock and a hard place.

The hardest part for me was after you incap the new vice president and all the splinter cells bust down the door. That fight sucked.

I also got stuck on that tanker section for quite awhile till I figured out how to flank them once set it off.  For me it was the second hardest part of the game, with the first being the raid after the vice president interrogation, as previously mentioned by JustTheDoctor.

That bit outside the White House was a bitch. Had good music though.

I actually beat the part where you have to blow the tanker on my first try, but the section right after that in the White House courtyard took forever.

I did that pretty easily by having a spy cam glued on the truck attracting guards to it and blowing it up...

I was stuck on the freaking helicoper for a good while....

I honestly never really had any major hard parts on realistic, because if i got stuck i'd just start chucking everything that explodes at everything i saw moving lol. The trickiest part for me was after i met the VP and all the SC's came out of the wall. But once i started the nade chucking it was super easy.

it was all kinda easy. i think my hardest part was inside third echelon

For me, the only tricky bits were the helicopter battle, and inside the White House when you get flashbanged and rushed.

I found what I called the "Hardest parts of the game" changed after a few more replays. Honestly when the developer said to us, if you're having trouble getting through certain areas, you're just not looking hard enough. And he's right, for the most part of the game he is right, I found so many ways around that I never noticed deeper in the game.
 
Though I did find the helicopter battle hard and the rush outside the white house.

The most diificult bit for me was the infiltration of third echelon, I found that car park  a nightmare

I think I died a few times when the enemy Splinter Cell's first appeared in Third Echelon and at the part mentioned above after the VP interrogation. But then I realized that not even the best trained soldier can dodge remote mine and frag grenade spam, which I found to be a hell of a lot more effective that carefully sneaking around and death from above-ing people.

I gotta echo the White House battle after the VP. And I also beat it by just chucking any grenade I had left and right until there were only a couple dudes left. Not very satisfying, but recommended nonetheless.

#17 Posted by Merforga (262 posts) -

Infiltrating the White House seemed pretty tough...

#18 Posted by l4wd0g (1815 posts) -

The White house was insane! Is it possible to sneak through there? I found myself having to throw remote mines and hoping for the best.

This one by far, there are a lot of guys to take out.

Agreed. That part was pure BS, hated it. After you got in and went all crazy tho, then it got fun. The sneaking around was just frustrating

oh my god i loved that part. i was just running back either blowing dudes away or punching the shit out of them. it was so bad ass.

All the stealth parts are easy, but I usually find myself dying during the action bits. The two parts I had the most trouble with were getting into Third Echelon before the doors close, and the shootout in the White House.

Oh god i hate that level. And i also hate where you have to sneak in to HQ to go to grim office.

I had a bit of trouble with the stealth bit in the garage of the Third Echelon at first, but it was really just trial and error until I figured out their patterns enough. 
 
If I had to say the hardest part, it would be after interrogating the VP as previously mentioned. Took me a few to get a handle on how to solve that dilemma. Lets just say pipe + remote mines + grenades = win.

I agree with the first part, it was just figuring out patterns. Still, it shouldn't have to be that...cheap. Ya know. Honestly, that part should have been more flexible

You counted your failures?
 
Who does that?!

#27 Posted by djz (134 posts) -

 
I mean that part was damn hard.

#28 Posted by Marnox (325 posts) -

When I played it on realistic the hardest part is right after you secure the Vice President.

Yeah, that part surprised me a little bit.  After I died the first couple of times, I started by running towards the room on the right, threw a flash bang, melee one of the guys and then assassinated the others.  After that, I just picked off the guys who came into or near the room.  For the others on the other side of the big room w/ the VP, I locked onto them and assassinated them.

@CitizenKane: I kept hiding behind the tables on the left. I always got killed!. Then I finally went to the open door on the right and just spammed grenades. I think I died over 15 times before I finally went to the open door on the right.

I'm with the OP. From the gas tanker to the door of the Whitehouse was a pain in the ass.

I'm playing the game now and you guys are scaring me =/

#33 Posted by MrFwankie (46 posts) -

For some reason, the Iraq level on Realistic gave me a lot of trouble.

#34 Posted by PocketfullaButtholes (76 posts) -

The campaign was relatively easy, nothing like the last boss on hard in Prototype. Oh my GOD!!! 
 
I think Last Stand was the hardest part of the game. You just HAD to get it done before they blow up the EMP.
