"Use the targetting computer, Luke. That's what it's there for."

I'm pretty sure that the Library can be done in thirty minutes or less. Run past as much as you can, pick up the rockets when you see them, use the needler or the Shotgun to pick off whatever gets too close.

The deathless one... that'll be harder. You can go through it part by part, just getting far enough to trigger the next wave of enemies, then retreat and pick them off. I'm pretty sure I've done it on Halo PC.

Now, when they do Halo 2 Anniversary, I've got a suggestion for an achievement that will separate the men from the boys:

Inconceivable! 200 GS
"Get all the Marines through Sniper Alley alive, on Legendary, all skulls on."

If that's an achievement it should be worth the full 1000 GS.

In my experience, the needler is literally the worst weapon to fight flood with. The delay on kills, especially on close targets, will result in them running up to you and exploding.
Not to mention that needler BURNS THROUGH AMMO and there's not enough for it to be reliable.

Shotgun, pistol, or plasma pistol IMO

I think some guy in the office when thinking of achievments said


"You guys remember making The Library?"


"Oh fuck yeah, that shit was tough on people. Especially on Legendary"


"Well, lets force them fuckers to do it WITHOUT DYING AND IN ONLY 30 MINUTES"


"........."


"........."


"FUCK YES

Well, this IS coming from the same people who decided that Vidmaster challenge was a good idea.



(altho, I assume that nightmare doom was as difficult, if not more so. people simply made harder shooters back then)

I don't think so, since going back to Doom and Marathon present day, they seem more difficult, at least at their harder settings.

Because Modern shooters are a lot more forgiving and easier than they were ten or fifteen years ago.

Marathon is definitely more difficult than Halo.

Also, sometimes games are easier simply by being better designed. Ramping up stats to obscene levels can just break gameplay, where the game becomes hard because the normal flow, and the normal strategy associated with it, disappears. Not saying games haven't become easier, but honestly, is the Sniper Alley on Halo 2 real difficulty, or just forcing players to overcome broken mechanics?

It's designed to be tough as hell.

And Marathon's levels are one fucking sewage tank of mazes. Especially that one in Durandal when you're avoiding the green Cookie monster and the water is about to drown you and you have to get to that switch...

Ive done legendary library in 30 minutes. Granted it would have been easier without those wtf omg damn door waiting sequences.

"Do keep up now this door is only the first of 10"

"Right, easy enou- WHAT"

Also Co-op will make the achievement much easier, as 4 people mean 2 more shotguns then is standard in regular CE which makes hell of a difference.

I wonder if they'll return to Halo 2 co-op, where on legendary, if either player dies, you both have to restart.

The Library will never be completed on Legendary otherwise.

Legendary co-op any other way is a joke.

I got it.

Played through the whole thing on heroic with a stupid smile plastered over my face.

It's just like the original. I can think of one or two things that changed, like the Flood not overrunning a Covenant position until I'm almost on top of it, but that could be me misremembering the triggers or just bad luck.

Cutscenes aren't as nice due to changed camera angles and some wonky art choices. But ultimately, it was worth forty dollars to me.
