    Struggling with Novastrike

    ...and I have no idea why! I've never really had problems with these kinds of games before, but frak! I'm on the easiest setting, but keep getting screwed! I always run out of boosts, and end up getting slaughtered, it's ridiculous!

    Advice, please!

    Its not you. Its the game. The patch did jack diddly as far as making it more realistic in difficulty. Sad really cause its a halfway decent game if it wasnt ******edly difficult on even the easiest setting.

    I read impressions from people over at the playstation blog after the patch went online and many still struggled on the easiest setting, so its not you i think. The game is just hard.

    I've also read its a pain to cycle through weapons, so im on the fence with this one, havent pulled the trigger just yet.

    This is ridiculous. I'm fairly sure beating Mirror's Edge blindfolded would be easier.

    It's like the devs didn't actually play the game before they released it.

    It's a mediocre game with annoying difficulty...

    Well I have to say that the game got easier on the easiest level after the patch.

    When I first bought the game, I couldn't even finish Stage 1.

    i dont think its THAT hard the main thing that annoys me is that the graphics are kind of blurry, and you cant move your reticle which makes bombing kind of difficult
    I will say what needs to be said and take whatever consequences that carries.

    I've NEVER struggled with a game before this.

    Just finished it on Soldier difficulty. Honestly theres only two hard parts to the game(at least on this difficulty). And that is Level 4 completely. And the Searer Ship fight at the end of Level 5, and once you get into a rhythm with it its not that bad. The rest is simple, including the final boss on 7.

    It's nice to know the devs are paying attention though. Just got this email:

    Sorry that you're frustrated. We actually did do a lot more focus-testing with the patch before releasing it, but I am still watching forums - as with your email, I'm still seeing players that aren't able to progress. And yes, we do play our own game (I can beat it on HARDCORE without too much difficulty) - so we do rely on focus-testing and customer feedback versus our internal team.

    I appreciate you taking the time to email me. - we are still definitely paying attention to the new feedback based on the update.

    Sincerely,
