hi all,

what's the hardest difficulty setting that still lets you use checkpoints?

hardcore is fun but dying after 45 minutes in a mission gets really frustrating after the third time.

The firefights in this game are so satisfying, I don't even mind replaying missions. It gives you way more freedom than corridor shooters, so if one approach didn't work, you can just try a different route next time.

Also, knowing that "death" has a severe consequence (losing all mission progress) makes the game much more intense. Add the fact that HUD-less gameplay is pure immersion, and hardcore mode is clearly the way to play this.
