When trying to change the difficulty during a game a warning is shown that "some achievements will not be unlocked". Which achievements are affected by a difficulty change?

The only affected achievement is Legend, which requires beating the game on Give Me Deus Ex difficulty (hardest). If you want to get that achievement, you must start a game on Give Me Deus Ex difficulty and never change it.

PS: I encourage playing on Give me Deus Ex difficulty. That is the way the game was meant to be played.

Ok, so the warning is rather stupid when switching from easy to normal. – ThiefMaster Jul 7 '12 at 18:50
They probably hadn't decided whether to put an achievement limited to normal+ until late in the process. – Lawton Jul 8 '12 at 0:21
