    Is it just me, or is ROTDS pretty darn hard? I even set it to "easy" and still I had to just shut it off because I was literally having ZERO fun playing it.

    So let down by this game in everyway, and now this. :/

    ...and yes, I am willing to accept that I just suck at it. ...but nonetheless.

    Set and use the Tech. It makes a difference.

    There is a section with Shockwave that I had problems with initially, until I learned to focus on the roving gun turrets. I also set and used some tech there too. Shields and energon replenishing tech help.

    Make full use of both modes, all weapons, abilities, and TECH equipment. It also helps if you sort of be in-character when playing, that really does help for some reason.

    ah, good advice.

    I'm actually on that Shockwave level where you're inside that giant reactor looking thing and you have to take out the 4 or 5 sections surrounding it.

    I haven't fiddled with any of the tech stuff....guess I should. lol

    Oh yeah, those CLUTCHES are hard! I had to switch to easy just to get passed them. Try using Shockwave's rockets. They are pretty effective. Also keep your distance from their spawn point.

    I felt bad switching to easy at first...then I realized the game felt NO EASIER once I did that! lol

    ....I shut it off for the night; I'll try again tomorow.

    *hangs head in shame*

    I play on hard. I'm cursing at the level I demand of this difficulty. I was trying to save CJ without the turret, damn near nuked my entire block.

    I meant skill, because that is what I can advise you on. How hard do you find FOC?

    Well, try following the advice I gave in my other post. Make use of every single thing your character can do, and think like they would.

    With that general guideline, I have been able to complete FOC, which plays very much like ROTDS, without any deaths, on several occasions. You can trust me.

    Indeed, get rid of the clutch things first you should be fine after that. Really glad there are more cybertron levels, hate the earth ones.

    I tried that on easy 4 times before I gave up and used the turret.

    I played entirely through FOC on normal, if I recall correctly, maybe from time to time switching to easy.

    But I also remember it being juuuuuust the right amount of difficulty to enjoy, and still be challenged.

    I find in ROTDS there are parts I just get annihilated one; before even being able to react.

    Good news is, I finally passed the Shockwave board that prompted this original post.

    I started on hard mode assuming there was going to be an achievement but there wasn't so I switched to easy mode. I did my first playthough of FoC on Hard Mode and it was fun. I just couldn't be bothered with this story since I knew it wasn't going to be great.

    Absolutely.

    Anyway, you can use the tips I gave. They work on Hard.

    Any recommedations on Mission 7 where I had to cover Jazz while he saves Cliffjumper? I use the turret, and every time I do, I get a certain length in, and Jazz dies.
