Finally unlocked Warthog, anyone else go through the pain?

So many hours of frustration, but lots of satisfaction once you finish it. Only reason I went through it was to relive the memories of TM2 from back in the day. Also, the developers of this game are sadistic. Absolutely fucking sadistic.

I think the worst part of it is the near-insta (.5-2 sec charge? wtf?) kill sniper rifles that the AI has. I wonder if it's a bug that QA missed, or just another random ass variable they decided to throw in just to make you restart when you've almost got the gold medal.

@Xiemos2: Man, part of me wants to attempt it but I dunno If I care enough is he even any good? I was thinking about grabbing the laser pistol and being good with that.

I thought you were talking about the Halo Warthog, now I'm sad.

@Demoskinos: He's a mix between Axel and Darkside. Tough like Darkside with lots of ram damage, better maneuverability, and has Axel's specials. Pretty cool but nothing outstanding. The laser pistol takes awhile to charge up (5 or so seconds) and hits for 25.

Damn. I really want to do this to just say I did it. I had a tough time on normal. I would probably break my house attempting this.
