I found I really liked the classic mode, simply because it was just that, classic with the basic weapons. However, if you have the preoder bonus, you can still play with the Evangelizer dual weapon which helped out a lot.
I love that foam hand. I think if we cleared Dead Space 2 and earned it then they should have a mode where we can use it right from the beginning without earning any achievements or anything just for fun.
i wish we can use the devils hand in hard core mode. i tried doing hard core in dead space 2. i gave up. it would have been better if we could have kept are upgrades for hard core in dead space 2. i don't feel like losing hours of gameplay because i got
pinned against a wall by a bunch of necros, or got grabed from behind by a necro. i can't imagine someone making it to the last boss and get killed with one hit left on the last boss.
Hardcore isn't that bad, really. If you have a buddy to play with, it makes it less stressful since you can watch each other closely. Don't waste time with side missions and you'll get it done even quicker. It can still be pretty intense a few times, though.
Did Hardcore on my own. Overall I thought it was fun. Going through Classic now, and I think it's easier than Hardcore. Survival I did with a friend, and that was truly a piece of cake. Although had far less health packs.
