Thread: What is your favorite difficulty to play on?

What is your favorite difficulty to play on?

  1. #1
    I usually go for the hardest difficulty, but the difference between Proud and Critical just feels so minute in BBS. My current playthrough is on proud, as was my first, but I did two critical playthroughs between them. I honestly just don't like critical because of the diminutive HP bars. I rarely die, but I just feel safer with the bigger HP bars on proud. What do you all think about the different difficulties, and which is your favorite?

    Always Critical (Hardest Difficulty).

    If your first playthrough is in the hardest difficulty, your style of play adjusts to it automatically, and you don't quite realize the difficulty. I don't think I even noticed I was playing in Critical mode, once I got past the first area or so.

    Proud. But with the amount of grinding I did for commands, I think my Proud run was easier and quicker than my standard play!

    EXP Walk also helps.

    I never get around to making exp walk until I come up with it on accident when synthing for once more/second chance for the final bosses lol

    Critical Mode of course

    I play on standard. I can't be bothered to play on the higher difficulties so I just stick with the simple stuff.

    I enjoy going proud mode so that way I can top up other players who don't play on such psychotic settings.

    Critical (or given the hardest mode)

    Its become simple to just play the harder ones and not feel the difficulty difference

    I like proud because you can get the secret ending and get the game done quicker.

    HARDEST: better rewards for some games, and its a better experience!

    I played Terra and Ventus' POV the first time through on Normal Mode, but when I realized I missed some items, I thought "screw it" and just restarted the POVs on Proud Mode, then finished Aqua's on Proud Mode. My goal was to see the secret ending more so than be a completionist xD

    BBS was the first KH game I'd played since Final Mix II+ came out, so I started on normal and moved up a difficulty level for the two following storylines. Usually play on Critical.

    I think Proud Mode was the perfect difficulty level for the game. I have never played the game on Normal X). I have always wanted to see the secret ending every time.

    I had to have beaten BBS (with every character; thats what I consider beating the game) about 5 times now.

    Critical all the way for me. It'll be great to play the HD version on the PS3 collection when it's out.

    Critical or Proud if critical is not available. I played Ventus in proud, but when I'm at cinderella's world, I figured out that critical is more exciting so i switched to critical.
