I didnt like it I found it too hard (but Im probably just bad at it)
I found the difficulty reasonable if you worked at it.
One of the major points of the new update is an 'easy' difficulty - you might want to give that a shot and see if that works out better for you. (And don't feel too bad about using it - I'll be there right with you! I don't mind the challenge, but hardly have any spare time these days and usually play games on the easiest difficulty so I can get through them faster...)
