I'm planning on starting this game in the next week or 2. seeing as no one has finished it yet, how hard is this difficulty? Is the achievement glitched, or has just no one done it yet?

Its super hard. Basically playing through on the hardest difficulty and you cant upgrade your stuff, if you die you go back to the beginning. So its similar to Max Payne NYMHC without the time limit of course

How save works in that difficulty mode?

Thanks.

Heroic mode is harder than Insane difficulty (highest difficulty you can pick). You can still do everything you could if you were playing on an easier difficulty, but if you die you go back to the initial checkpoint of the chapter. Initial checkpoints being just checkpoints that you get through progression (like Call of Duty or Halo).

I'm guessing you unlock Heroic by beating the game on Normal or higher?

^ Yes, you unlock Heroic after completing a "Normal" game.
There is only one way, the way of the battlefield

I've just started Chapter 9 and it hasn't been too bad so far, dying just twice - once from blowing myself up and the other by boosting to my death down some stairs. I'm sure its going to get brutal soon though considering the amount of people who have the ach (14 when i posted).

To play on Heroic you have to complete the game once on Normal or above (not sure about Easy). It is a separate mode and is basically like playing on the hardest difficulty and if you die you must restart the level. Everything is else is the same, you can upgrade your Powers, Skills and Weapons. Enemies take much more damage and you take much more damage.
