Default SE is easier than FE

I recently finished both HDs on Serious difficulty and I came up with conclusion that SE is actually quite easier...

I had a lot of times pressing F6 key on FE, while on SE it didn't happen that much. Actually, kill count even says that SE has less enemies than FE.

Anybody came to the similiar conclusion?

No, because the official killcount of SE is around 1500 more than in FE.

It depends... FE in FE is much easier than FE in SE.
If you know where will spawn enemies, then every map is easy.

SE maps are much larger so enemies are more spread out. It makes it feel like there are less even if that isn't the case. Kind of interesting to think about and I hope somebody is paying attention in Croteam. Perception is important and making maps too big actually creates a lot of problems when trying to craft an experience within the limited sight radius of the player. Having a large open space means filling it with something or it looks empty. Maybe the solution is just to make the space smaller.

I disagree. First Encounter was pretty hard on Serious mode, but very doable because the battles seemed to be crafted more thoughtfully than in Second Encounter. It seems Croteam took a more "just drop a bunch of monsters everywhere", making it much harder. Especially fights like the City of the Gods long alley and bouncer room, Ziggurat's circular room before the last yard, Elephant Atrium's cannon secret, Courtyards of Gilgamesh' last fight, etc. Don't get me wrong, I completely dig both styles, but I think TFE is better crafted and thus easier, and TSE has insane yet fun battles.

The point is I knew FE spawns a lot more, while SE was kind of a mistery for me on Serious Difficutly - still feeling quite easier.

Tell me which level is hard to finish for you. I can give you tips, because i completed every level on serious without saving. I don't know why The Moon Montains is the hardest level for me.

Second Encounter is more content with throwing a few big enemies your way instead of a lot of small ones like First Encounter.

Also depends on the difficulty. What I meant with the 1500+ is on Normal difficulty.

Also bear in mind that TFE bombards you with more Marsh Hoppers than in TSE, most notably on Serious difficulty. And Kleers. Tons and tons of Kleers on Metropolis.

Perhaps I should try SE on Serious.. I finished FE on Serious for the achievement a while back, took me a few days D:

I can just barely finish either game on easy so I can't say much about this.

You can say which one you found easier. The game difficulty isn't mentioned anywhere.

You get the strong weapons and shitloads of ammo very early in SE and if you know how to utilize that it feels comparably easy. Sniper rifle and Flamethrower are strong as hell aswell and you get those in the first level while you run around with a single barrel shotgun in Hatshepsut and Sand Canyon secrets excluded. FE has a lot of tricky spawns and even knowing them doesnt always make it easier.
