Thumbs down 5 Stars on Level 9/Screwed up star system!

So down to the wire I was almost finished this game, all I had to do was beat level 8 and 9 on impossible and get 5 stars on impossible and I was done.

I went to level 9 to get my five stars and for some reason, on NORMAL, I could only come out with 4 stars!!

I was going crazy, I really thought that level 9 five stars was going to ruin my platinum.

So in my despiration I said screw this and went on to level 9 to complete it on impossible. I figured I will try and get the 5 stars but pretty much knew it was impossible.

Well to make a long story short, some how I managed to pull out the 5 stars doing level 9 on impossible. I had WAY MORE DAMAGE and grabs and more health packs used and missed stasis and botched reloads, but I still had 5 stars.

I honestly dont know how the star system is done on this game, but it seriously seems screwed up,,, I mean really, I couldnt get the 5 stars on NORMAL but can get it on IMPOSSIBLE.

Im so happy Ive got my platinum on this game. So glad its over!!

You get more stars as a reward for playing on higher difficulty...With similar stats you'd get eg. 3 stars on normal and 5 stars on impossible...

Impossible mode is a big joke. It's easier than a normal mode in many retro-games. A big joke.

Oh I see... more reward for highter difficulty..makes perfect sense actually. Makes me wish I didnt waste so much time on my 5 stars on Normal because you had to have a damn near flawless run to get it... but on Impossible you can fuck up a lot and still get 5 stars.

Gah. At least that answers that question. I've got five stars on every level right now except chapter 9. I've ran through the level multiple times, including following the walkthrough for all of the collectables in it and got all of them each time just to get four stars at the end of each run.

Since I've got to do the Impossible difficulty I might as well try getting five stars there. I think the part that's killing it down to four stars on lower plays is simply the part where you have to cut off your own arm. Seems like that might be applying damage and killing the five star run.

So fricking stuck on chapter 9, always 4 stars, not 5 stars!

Ok I have done it, I was trying on Impossible setting until I tried normal difficulty. I managed to get it in normal not impossible for chapter 9. Try normal difficulty if it is hard for you to achieve 5 stars, you never know.

This might help someone else to get an idea of the concrete stats needed. I tried about 6-7 times total on all different difficulties before I finally got 5 stars on Chapter 9. I think it's probably likely that you can fck up more, but I wouldn't know where that line between a 4 star and a 5 star rating starts.

Difficulty Impossible
0 Deaths
6 Grabs
48% Damage Taken
3 Med Packs Used
0 Revival Packs Used
0 Puzzle Fails

180 Enemies Killed
60/60 Perfect Reloads
64% Accuracy
238 Dismemberments
100% Stasis Accuracy
101 Items Pick up

But it says difficulty doesn't matter for five stars on the trophy guide.
