>I was having trouble with a fight that's why I stopped playing, I didn't want to have to change the way I was playing, but I couldn't make it through the fight very well as it was, meh, I'll do it some time this week and it will be fine, not far to go from the end I think.
You can lower the difficulty "on the fly", if you want. It's in the options menu. Personally, I started playing SR:HK on Normal, but bumped it up along the way since I was barely taking damage. At the start, you feel kinda weak though, since your NPCs don't all contribute a whole lot in fights.
During the first section of SR:HK, there's a passage where I thought "well, that's going to suck if you use an adept or melee focused street samurai", but I just replayed that and it was pretty easy. The NPCs provided could pull it off without any help from you if you guide them right and use their skills correctly.
I also think near the end would suck without a good decker character, but I guess Is0b3l will do fine? We'll see, since in my current playthrough I'm going as adept instead of decker.
