Some missions are fairly easy whilst others can be extremely difficult. Even after multiple tries losing can be inevitable. Stick with it though and this game proves to be a rewarding experience. Door Kickers is all about making the right choices to get your SWAT team safely through houses/compounds to kill terrorists. The Campaign mode adds hostages to save for an added difficulty.
