Default Game too hard to be enjoyable

My idea of a good game & enjoying gaming doesnt involve repetitive saving and reloading. I like the game, its just too hard to be enjoyable, even on Easy. I hate reloading everytime one of my guns dies, if I dont, I cant pass the mission. (sevastopol). So my question is, is the rest of the game like this? The other missions this hard? Saving, reloading, saving, reloading, cursing, saving, reloading? If so, no offense, but Id rather cut my losses, quit cutting my teeth, and go one to another game

Odd thing is; I passed that mission the first time I ever played it, where most people don't. The one I had trouble with was the mission after Sevestapol. I finally passed it though.

this game is not too hard, you just have to get better. if i can do it, you can do it. if you don't want to put in the time to master the game then quit playing but joe montana didn't just get up off the couch one day and start playing pro football...

Luck plays a big part of this mission (Sevastopol), which is the main reason for the discrepancy you mentioned. A lucky hit from a German tank, or a strafing run from an enemy plane can have grave consequences, since you are so dependent on your AT defense.

I didn't pass it on my 1st attempt, however, when I did, by the time the last ship was leaving port and the mission ended, I was in a middle of an offensive to take back the first line trenches on the right flank.

One of these days I'm gonna try to play it again and continue after the mission ends, to try and clear out all the Germans. I wonder if enemy attack waves continue after the mission is complete?

Yes, the waves never stop. I was playing against an unstoppable German horde that still had active 600mm artillery pieces (Thor or whatever) for about 20 minutes until I just hit Continue and went on. And you're right about this being a very good game.

I have to agree, this game is often way too hard. But its not only too hard, its unfair also. Now im in the german Scorsching Sands mission and this one is just laughable unfair. Most tanks i have to hit at least 4 times before they start smoking or lose a track while my tanks are easely taken out with one or 2 shots. There is also 1 ******* britisch tank shooting ALL of my tanks with one shot heavely damaged or straight to pieces. I swear i shot this tank about 20 times and missed about half. Still 10 hits and its still alive and not even smoking. Very frustrating and a waist of what could have been a good game.

Weird, that was an easy Mission for me. The hardest one is the this coast mission I am on now. I have roughly 30-40 guys and such, but the enemy is rushing me with like 200. I also have to use Arty to destroy the ships passing by, and their long range arty keeps attacking mine.

It's the very, very frustrating.
