Use a 3-3-4 or 3-5-2 formation and you should be cruising to victory.

Although, I've been playing Street Fighter II which is darn hard. I've now got the difficulty level set on zero..
What version of Streetfighter 2 are u playing mate? arcade?
Nope, Street Fighter II: The World Warrior on the SNES. Great, but rather difficult.

Usually go for 'normal'

Have done COD2 and Halo 1 and 2 on the hardest ever settings though.

Usually have good intentions to persevere on "normal", get stuck somewhere and drop to "easy", fully intending to complete it, then bump back up to "normal" and then go for "hard", "extreme" or whatever.

However, I usually finish it on easy, and can't get motivated to do it all again when there are so many games in my "to-do" pile. :oops:

i don't think i've ever played a game on easy setting

i always go for the default setting then play again on hard after that

i like when a game dosn't have settings but gives you challenges like completing resident evil 2 without dying using just your knife...ive never managed it yet although i came close once or twice!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...

I always whack it straight to easy. For a start, if I've spend £20-30 on something then I want to see the end. For another thing once I've finished it I've always got the option of going back and playing it again on a harder setting, but if I'd played it through on hard the first time there'd be nowhere else to go.

I always go for the middle one. It is always a safe bet.

Dont want it to be too easy or to hard.
