Use some mods or play casual style (then it's even to simple).

I agree that the difficulty sucks, but for me this game is far far too easy. After playing for a few hours, I would usually beat every mission (killing all zombies half the time) unless I had really bad luck (even with using mods). Seems to me that the game needs better difficulty options overall.

If the game even gives you one infantry, you can block off a huge area while evacuating the rest, with two infantry (at decent level) you can win with just those on early maps.

Another problem is the fact that the game gets easier if you're doing well (and vica versa), by leveling up your units, and reducing the zombie population. A single high level unit can often win the map, regardless of what it is, with minimal support.

As some tips, try to limit the areas the zombies can come from in early maps, and plan where your going to evacuate. You should need 2 to 3 helli trips to gather the remaing population into one place, and your remaining defences should be there (infantry are very good at both stages). You should be able to evacuate the remaining population before nightfall, which will level up your units, and make the rest of the game easier.

Also, playing with the option that lets you pick units makes the game alot easier, since you should never lose a map to bad luck, and that makes late game alot easier as well.

Really isn't that hard on vanilla.

Short of getting bad-early units randomly off the bat (artillery, barriers), I've never had an issue with difficulty early on.

but when you get them together you might as well restart

I disagree that artillery is a bad unit. After couple of upgrades it's pretty much the best unit in the game.

That was kinda my point...

And neither are barriers - again - once you've started. However, if your first unit are either, you're in for a much rougher ride than, say, starting off with infantry, snipers, dynamite, or mines.

The game's difficulty, in my experience, is hugely dependent on how you do out of the gate. Its not hard to outpace the zombie horde if you have a good start - but, if you lose any of the first couple of missions, in my experience, you might as well restart.

Once you figure the game out it becomes pretty easy, but starting off it's rough.

I tried Hardcore mode for the first time today and was completely overwhelmed and lost badly, but playing on casual is way too easy and I dominate the map. I feel like whatever your problem is, too easy or too hard, you just have to use the right mods to get the challenge level you want.

artillary is basicly this games mage, while it sucks really bad at first, once it gets up their its outputing the most damage possible.
