Ooh general difficulty, this is about as hard as it comes. I've only finished Act 1 at the moment, so but I'll mention a few tips for conqueroring this as best as possible

- You HAVE to play conservatively. Aggressive and speed tactics work great on every other difficulty, but you'll get slaughtered on general. Enemies kill you in just few shots!
So use your machine gun primarily (You dont get the good guns like the rocket launcher and railgun until later) and grenade launcher. BUT BEWARE of heavy splash damage.
(Note the shotgun is also damn effective, just be extremely careful when you use it)

-The main enemies to avoid are the grunts, (green guys who charge you) beserkers, (Lightning guys who also charge) and those guys with grenade launchers. These guys WILL KILL YOU IN A SINGLE ATTACK. (If you dont have full armor) Keep backpedaling from em, and remember to spam the hell out of the save feature! I had on average 6 saves/level.

- Now Act 1 is considered the hardest part of the game, but it's the final scene (in the Nexus Hub) that gives people trouble. Save before you activate the console in the middle and make sure your health/armor is full, and you have grenade launcher equipped. First off you will fight two spider-like bots with rocket launchers. Keep pelting them with grenades and moving between the columns for cover. Try to keep your health as high as possible. (Mine was about 70 after this.)

- Now, INSTANTLY after you beat these 2 enemies, save again and aim at the door in the front of the room and fire as soon as the big boss opens the door. Hit him with a FULL CLIP of 'nades, then switch to the nailgun and hit him with a full clip of that. Finally pelt him with the hyperblaster until he shoots you with a purple ray and the level ends. This is extremely hard though, what I did was hide behind a column directly left of where he enters and he could not hit me with his rockets.

Good luck!
