I went with the default level. I think there are five levels, and default is a step above "Complete Weenie". So I'm only a partial weenie.
timppu: At which difficulty level are you playing it? :) When I played it earlier (maybe two years ago) with the highest difficulty, I kept complaining here how unfair the game is at times, especially the last mission. Somehow I was still able to finish it, but it left a bad taste into my mouth.
I may end up going with a port next time around. Played a mission last night where you have to sneak around in a captured vessel and get close to some enemy craft while avoiding others. Problem is avoiding the snoopers since the vanilla game doesn't give particularly good situational awareness for cases like this. Which probably simulates the outer space experience pretty well, but it's not great for a game. Maybe a port fixes that, improving visual and radar awareness. Ended up doing poorly on that mission and now the bad guys are knocking on the Vasudan's front door. : ) Just means different challenges, I suppose.
