Hardcore mode, too hard?

With the addition of hardcore mode, we have an incredible new challenge with Extinction. Yet, this begs the question of is this just too hard? Hardcore mode has the following differences from regular by my initial impressions:


Higher Cryptid spawns (especially the harder Cryptids)

More aggressive and faster moving Cryptids

Friendly fire with ricochet

Higher frequency in difficult challenges (including the beginning area)

Skill points only for challenges


So, is all of this combined just too much or is it just fine?
