Why do you hate Metro?
Was playing it, then i died as the game decided to checkpoint so now it reloads into a death every time. Have to restart i guess, but i'm just gonna do it on the easiest difficulty
No need to restart, just start the chapter over and use quick save every now and again. It's a manual save function that may not be well explained. Don't play the game on the easiest difficulty, I did while starting a second play through for the good alt ending and it was a joke, I quickly upped it to normal which was a good balance, even easy is a much more balanced experience than 'reader' which fills out your entire inventory with one or two dead bodies.
These games were originally designed to fuck you over anyway much like Resident evil and with quick save this is the easiest Mretro game to date... well, maybe not ranger hard-core but the openness still gives so much more opportunity and you see less death screens than the prior two. I'm currently stuck in a boss near the end of Metro 2033 with 2 bullets, that's a chapter restart for sure if I ever get back to it after last light which I'm currently playing and it's no joke if you don't use stealth.
