I've been playing the first Resistance, and I'm finding the difficulty to be way too high even on Normal.  I'm not that great at FPS games, but I find Normal in this game to be harder than most other FPS games on Hard.  I'm only about 1/3 of the way through and encounters are taking several tries, and with checkpoints being so far apart, I'm not having much fun.  Does it get much harder?  Should I push on, or just give up and restart on easy?

It's not really hard, it's just... cheap. Resistance is poorly balanced with its health system and with enemies that can fire through walls, so some parts can feel much harder than I think they were intended to be. I got through it on Normal, but some parts were frustrating.

It stays somewhat hard...

I had a muuuch easier time on normal when I played co-op. If you're not enjoying yourself (the game gets better the further on you get), I would suggest restarting on easy biggrin

Have you gotten to the "twist" yet? I thought that before that point (although I think it is like the 2nd or 3rd mission) it was a lot harder. There were choke points later on, but nothing too horrible. It was definitely harder than R2, especially the bosses. Also, I found it really hard to shoot down the sights because of the controls, so I pretty much never did. I think it is made for shooting from the hip, though, so that is not a big deal.
