Woah... that's hard
You Monster seems impossible to me, was really looking forward to more defense grid but having just spent an hour losing pathetically on the first level, I've lost the will to play.
The original game was well paced, this just seems like an exercise in pathing trial and error and memorising exactly what each wave composition is.
Maybe I'll try again when I'm not drunk.
Ya the first level nailed me too last night. But then I kinda got the hand of it and spanked it in about 40 min this morning.
You monster is definitely a fail, for me. When I saw that a new DLC pour Defense Grid was available, that was Glados-based, I immediately order it.
If I knew it would be that hard, I would not have bought it.
I tried to beat the first level for 3 hours, without success. Defense Grid was a great game with a great learning curve / difficulty increase. Portal and Portal 2 : the same: great learning curve, and not very difficult.
So I thought that Defense Grid + Portal would also have the same qualities. But it doesn't !
I gave up trying to beat the _FIRST_ level ! This is something wrong for your game. Of course, if it was marketed as being for DG expert only, I would not complain. But come on, what I liked about DG was that the levels was beatable, but to achieve the highest rank (medals), you will have to try again and again some strategies.
With "You Monster", I struggle to beat the very first single level (and failed !). I am sorry but I got no pleasure playing this game. Maybe that's me, who is a terrible player (I certainly am), but the difficulty should have been mentioned on the store page.
(hopefully, 4dnamuse is still working, but it is really no fun (seriously))
I was quite shocked at how steep the difficulty level was straight away but finished them all with a bronze medal. Don't know if i can be bothered to go back and go for gold like i did with the previous DLC levels as i didn't enjoy playing You Monster really.
I'm not that good at DG (check the boards!), but I managed to get golds on the first 3 levels without too much of a problem, and I'm not very bright.
My main gripe is, IT KEEPS CRASHING.
I'm certainly hoping that this isn't the last DG DLC we see. Portal and GLaDOS appeal to a specific set of people, and I know a few folks that aren't buying this DLC because of that. Beyond that, yes, it's really hard. On a difficulty curve I'd have to grade these in the High A's. This is one of the hardest packs I've played, and some of that is due to GLaDOS cheating.
Shame that its crashing whats your PC specs OS HW.
