If you have played the previous two Mass Effect games on the normal difficulty, then you know it’s pretty easy to beat the game without any sweat. When you played on higher difficulties, you had to take cover a lot and the enemies were highly accurate, well it’s the same in Mass Effect 3.
“On Normal you’ll be able to power your way or shoot your way through the game. But when you try Hardcore or Insanity you’re not going to be able to do that any more.”
“You really will have to think about each combat; who the enemies are, what kind of resistance you’re presented with, and then strategise to take them down. I’m hoping that it’ll feel like you made a mistake and the game called you on it, rather than, ‘I thought I was playing well, and then I died’,” lead designer Preston Watamaniuk told OXM.
“We’ve tried to make it so that it just feels like if you’re working the problem – using all your squad, all your powers, picking the right guns – you’re going to get through that combat,” he added.
Hardcore difficulty seems to be the best mode for the first playthrough, but it’s nice to know that people who want some challenging gameplay, can get it from Mass Effect 3.
