Game is way too hard!(PSP)

Recommended Posts

Raz3r95

How the hell is it possible to complete this game without cheats?

Well...i did it, i actually completed this game. I was thnking about cheating many times, but i didn't...

i will never play this game ever again, i completed GTA 3, Vicecity and SanAndreas over 10 times. But this game? no way...

 

And i didn't even finnish one empire mission, they were too boring and too hard at the same time. Respect for everyone who managed to reach 100% , you are da real mvps...

 

Missions which gave me some crazy rages...

Unfriendly Competition

Farewell to Arms

Light My Pyre

I got 100% Completion, Perfect Stats (0 Deaths, 0 Busted, 0 Cheats, and the Minimum Mission Failures), and 12 total Proof Vehicles in my 3 garages.

 

But I agree, VCS is pretty challenging of a game. I am playing it with my PS2 disc in my backward compatible PS3.

 

Unfriendly Competition, Tune In, Turn On, Bug Out, and Light My Pyre are the 3 hardest missions, imo.

Or just do the 99 Red Balloons and get ALL weapons at safehouses. The M249 is the reward for all 99 Red Balloons. I did like 30 or 40 Red Balloons right when I started the game, but when the East Island was unlocked, I did the other right away before moving onto any other missions and got all the weapons and ammo I needed.

How is exactly is VCS hard?

I found it to be reasonable & the most diverse mission-wise,

Just started playing it again tonight on PSP and tbh don't find it hard at all. Only done about 5 or 6 missions so far, mainly f*cking about doing the quad bike races, shooting range etc.

Well, those empire missions are pretty hard with just an assault rifle. I did need the m249 for that. Those Sharks assassination cars that randomly show up are pretty menacing as well. m249 solves everything though.

VCS was the hardest gta I've ever played, and I've played 85% of them.

Luckily I'm playing it on PC emulator, allowing me to quicksave and to "simulate" the checkpoint saves like in GTA 5, spares me a lot of nerves and rage.

Cheat codes got me through the game. I was using at least 5 in the last mission

Absolutely agree about it being too hard. I've played it on and off since day one (yes, late 2006) and never once have I managed to complete missions like High Wire or Turn On, Tune In, Bug Out.

I just passed Turn On, Tune In, Bug Out yesterday. It's SIMPLE...........If you have a Bulletproof/Pop Proof Vehicle from the Empire Sites. But the only way you can get them is if you took over all 30 Empire Sites before that mission, like I did. So it was a piece of cake for me driving to the Pay and Spray to pass the mission :p:D

 

High Wire isn't exactly hard, but flying that damn Maverick to pick the guy up when the Bikers are shooting at him is mighty annoying. Too many trees in the way, he's going too fast, the Maverick is too slow, and the magnet needs to be like RIGHT ABOVE the car for it to pick him up. It's not hard, just annoying...

 

But as I said last year in this topic, VCS is a hard game, but with practice it's easy. As you can see in the comment I made last year at the top near the OP, well I am re-doing VCS now as we speak and it's a LOT easier this time around than my first time around, which was July 2014. Empire Side Missions are kinda stupid, but other than that, I like VCS and now it feels like any other 3D GTA Title to me. All more or less the same difficulty for me...

 

EDIT: I also did VCS a bit different this time around. I got 41.30% Completion in a Starter Save before the next mission after "Soldier." So anytime I want to re-do VCS, I will start at 41.30% instead of 0% since I am keeping this Starter Save. I made a topic of it recently which you can find in the VCS Section of the forum. I did a lot of stuff early. Having the M249 with you and body armor from the start helps a lot! :):p:D

Well I've had over 8 years of practice and I'm still finding this game more hard work than actual fun. In fact there are few games I've ever played whose difficulty has actually got under my skin as much as this one.

 

And I've never come across a single one of those red balloons either.

Haha, yeah, in my Starter Save I have all 99 Red Balloons burst after the mission "Soldier" before any other Story Mission. So I got all guns and ammo right at the start of the game, which I like. Early on, I just ran over the army guys and took their M4's so I had ammo to pop all the balloons.

Lovely, but could you please give me some kind of clue as to where to look for the red balloons?

Yeah, Youtube.

 

Don't expect myself or the next guy to actually find them in a timely manner without a guide.

 

There is dozens of guides on Youtube for all these things. I did 99/99 Red Balloons early, 36/36 Stunt Jumps early, and 18/35 Rampages early. I did NOT do the other 17 on the East Island early.

 

That's another thing, if you want to do them all EARLY when the East Island is LOCKED, you will need to get a Yankee and do the glitch by jumping over the gate on Starfish Island and running on foot over the bridge to the East Island. Then use a VCPD Maverick to fly back to Fort Baxter to Save your Game, etc. It's not hard, though. You just gotta think outside the box...

I found a few missions challenging yes, but the game was not too hard for me. :)

Which ones? I used to hate Unfriendly Competition, Turn On, Tune In, Bug Out, Light My Pyre and maybe one or two more. But now, they are very easy from when I played VCS last July 2014. Just with time, and not even practicing I somehow got better...

 

But this is just STORY missions. Some of the hardest tasks are found in the Smuggling and Robbery Empire Side Missions. Again, I might be wrong and I may find these easy now a days from before, but I remember there was a Robbery Mission which took like 30 tries last July of reloading...

 

Granted, I will know today, I guess. I am doing Prostitution, Drugs, Smuggling, and Robbery Side Missions today.

 

Then all I got left is 4 Story Missions and Vigilante Level 15 and I am done with my VCS Save File 2.

 

EDIT: Idk why I thought Light My Pyre was so hard before. Passed it first try, this time.

 

All the Empire Side Missions, including Drugs, Smuggling, and Robbery were all a piece of cake, too. I remember the Robbery ones where you were in a Boat were annoying before, but this time, I did it all first or second try. I finished my Save today, too. 100%....Again :p 12 Special Vehicles....Again! :D

I made a new save in thi game and a lot of the missions were extremly simple now. I dont see how people are having trouble with some of these. I think I only failed 3 missions during the whole thing. Currently aiming for 100%.

In the beginning, it's ultra simple. The only "challenging" one is the one where you have to get those crates or whatever into Phil's Walton before it blows up. I got it second try this time through, but my first time through it took probably 3-4 tries...Also there is some "difficult" ones like Jive Drive, Papi Don't Screech, Nice Package, etc. I passed all first try, but I remember having to do several tries for Jive Drive and Nice Package in my first playthrough. It gets easier as you play more, obviously. If you aren't very good, you can also use Youtube for the Mission walkthroughs...

 

It mainly gets a bit more challenging after you unlock the East Island when you pass "From Zero to Hero." That is where you run into missions like Unfriendly Competition, Turn On, Tune In, Bug Out, Light My Pire, and other irritating ones. Also the "Drugs" Empire Missions give you a 3 and 4 star wanted level and if you played VCS, you'd notice the cops are a LOT more insane in this game than in III, VC, SA or LCS. I just bolt to the Pay and Spray before continuing to the pink marker to finish the Mission for the Drugs Empire. You are usually give a slow piece of sh*t Van, too :p

 

But the point is, if you play it, you will get used to it and it'll all be a lot easier. As I said above, VCS is basically on the same difficulty as any other GTA for me now. Whereas my earlier feeling back in July 2014 was I NEVER wanted to do this game again and it was the most stressful and challenging games for the 3D Era. But now, even though it was only my second time through, it was very easy and not painful at all...

This clearly ain't the game for me. Maybe I should just put it down, never play it again and leave you guys to wax lyrical about it.

Granted, I am putting VCS down to rest once I finish this 3rd Save File I am working on now, which will be finished tomorrow. All 3 of mine will be 100%, Perfect Stats, and 12 Special Vehicles in each. So 36 total Special Vehicles across 3 Save Files! :)
