The sloppiest, laziest, most infuriating piece of shit in the history of gaming... And that's just the last level!

Just wait. I give this game 2/10. I hope that nobody buys it

You could easily write reviews for IGN based on the writing prowess you have just exhibited.

I may hold off. I'm really on the fence. Can you tell us some more about it?

The game is about trying to keep your limbs, and during the end boss battle you don't lose a limb when you get hit.... you lose all of your limbs. So then you have to scramble around to pick them all up again, and when you finally get yourself together, the boss has an unblockable attack that he uses every 30 seconds or so.

So when you do get a chance to fire a few bullets off at him (which you can only do from specific points on the map, which move at random) it's only a second or two before you're back on the ground rolling around trying to pick your body parts up again.

So basically it's designed very poorly indeed, takes about an hour to complete, is boring and frustrating and glitchy.... but do you want to know what the BEST part is?

When you finally complete it, the game makes you do it all over again

Are the achievements difficult? Are there online/multiplayer achievements?

There are online/multiplayer achievements, but the mode is so boring that you'd have to be mad to get them.

The collectibles are very well hidden as well so that achievement may take a while.

Thanks for the info, I stopped playing FF13 because of the long-grindy bosses so I'll probably pass on this game.

So is this one of those games where the hardest difficulity isn't unlocked from the start, or do you mean that difficulity achievements aren't stackable?

Also is hard 'hard' considering you can't die at all?

I got it yesterday as a promotional copy but man this game sucks. i'm stuck in the museum i cant get past where u have to lauch ypur head to another side because the "head launching" system sucks soo much. I need to finish to review it but man i'm hating it already.

EDIT: i got to the last boss battle, i'm hating this game even more i cant just beat it! the first time i got there i was able to cut off the first part but now i can't do that no more! and i hope i'm wrong but can u use only the sword to hit him because bullets seems not to be useful :(

Very frustrate in final boss? Oh well I don't care I just look forward to NeverDead to play through to earn achievements. Lots of games got final boss for frustrate part.

If I can't complete final boss I don't care since I want cheevos for this game. Wait until walkthrough to explain deep about how beat final boss then I able follow to finish final boss off simple like other games I did before :)

Easy or Mild or Hard OR PAIN IN ASS!! This is cool that how games is about any of those difficulty levels :)

Crap or Good games I will play this game anyway.

You can go through it on hard from the start if you like, and it looks like the achievements are stackable.... what I meant was that the boss comes back to life after you've beaten him, so you have to do it all over again and he has even more health.

Also is hard 'hard' considering you can't die at all?

Yes. Towards the end of the game you end up with just your head rolling around all the time, and these little suckers follow you around and try to inhale you. If they inhale you it's game over, and they are quite hard to avoid at times

is there a chapter select for this game, also how long is the campaign just as a general playthrough without actually going for certain achievements.


it's on my rental list so im just trying to get an idea of how long the game is.

The last boss battle is NOT as bad as everyone is making it out to be. All you have to do is shoot the glowing yellow guy through the blue portals. I used the dual assault rifles to take him down faster. Then his snake arm collapses on the ground and another blue portal appears on the ground. Pull out your sword, walk through the portal, your sword should now be glowing blue, and just slice his arm off. You do that twice and part 1 is over.

Part 2 is the same as part one except now when you have to shoot him through the portals, the ground raises and you have to climb the ground until you are behind a portal. Then the same shoot, collapse, and slicing of arms thing happens again. Do it twice and BAAM, you have just beaten the last boss!

And this Unavoidable attack that happens every 30 seconds is AVOIDABLE. The boss will say something like ďThis Is Your DemiseĒ. Then Arcadia will TELL you to watch out! At this point he hits the ground causing a shockwave. A well timed jump and you leap over taking no harm what so ever. The only reason it gets a little annoying is that you have to keep an eye out for this while fighting a bunch of regular demons, but with TWO audio cues followed by TWO visual clues, it makes it a bit easier.

I had a lot of fun playing this game so I donít see why there is so much hate. No, itís not Batman or Skyrim, but it is a good game nonetheless. Iím glad I bought it, although I have a feeling it will be hard to impossible to get the Multiplayer achievements cause not many will play this game online.

I agree its not blockable, but you can jump over it and come out it with all your limbs. You jump with the A button, I've been using the B button and the B button is just to dodge.

Yeah I was disappointed in this game too. I wanted it to be better, but it's just too frustrating at times. I don't mind some frustrating games, but they have to have good game play to keep me on it. I don't think I'll be completing this one.

And the Boss Battle. Yikes! Not to mention all the mini-bosses. Couldn't they get creative instead of fighting "polar bears," and "hippos" all the time?

Sounds like your one of those achievement..B*tches lol! playing every crap or shity game just to earn some gamerscore and to show off to your friends, how sad. You should try to play games like in the good old days m8, just the game and some rewards or unlocks when finishing it no achievements or trophies like nowadays just saying.

I agree cheevos should be for fun, not for torture. I was once addicted to cheevos and have wasted tons of hours of my precious life on stupid games and tough cheevos (e.g grinding ones). Now I've learnt the lesson one should play game only for fun and try to get as many cheevos as possible in single playhthrough and if one likes it he should try for 1G

Don't bullshit people. You have a huge vendetta against this game and its increasingly obvious. The game has flaws. However, you are complaining about truly ridiculous things. First off, the Grandbabies are easy as fuck to avoid; secondly, it isn't "game over" if they inhale you. There is an equally easy minigame that gives you 10 seconds to get out.

That's two threads where "IGN" has been brought up. Dude stop living in denial. It's cool you like this game and that's your business. But IGN's not the only site on the internet. Look at this www.metacritic.com (http://www.metacritic.com)

Out of 27 reviews. This game only had two positive scores. And even those two were only an above average 7.5 and an 8. Most landed in the 5/10 range.Which is why collectively this is a 5/10 game.

Even terrible games have die hard fans. Hell I enjoyed the piss out of "Alpha Protocol" but I can admit it was a huge unpolished mess.

Thanks for the understanding :) I just meant to say how some just seem to care about the achievements instead of the actual game, and yeah your right a game should be always fun and not to be frustrating just to get all the achievements or trophies. I admit i sometimes do try to get some achievements, but its never a must.
All i do know is that even if you have the highest gamerscore in the world it not means much in terms of life, gaming should always come as something fun to do and not control your life because life is to short realy, what would you say when your old and know you die soon to your grandkid? Hey i played games all my life and played every game and finished every game 1000G but i know nothing about life itself or seen much of it either. Just think about it ;)

Your comment is quite descriptive & philosophical AND I understand what you are trying to say BUT I will simplify it in a simpler tone.

I was once a great gamer (in stone age SNES, PS1, PS2) but then achievements corrupted me (in this gen), I found myself wasting tons of time of my precious life & also missing social life just for single cheevo/trophy BUT THEN I TOOK AN ARROW TO THE KNEE :p (and came back to my senses :woop:)

But you will have to agree still sometimes If one loves a game he will wastes tons of hours for single cheevo (for me in recent memory was Treasure Hunter FF XIII) ;)

I agree, there are games that i play like SR3 as an example and because of that i got every achievement, same went for The Saboteur, so i think nothing is wrong earning achievements for games you like :) But it must not control your life :P

Look.. All the pissing and moaning about this game, the bad reviews, etc. Ignore it! Try the game for yourself, start it on normal, not hard and give it a go! I love 3rd person action games and sure, this is not as polished as Devil May Cry or Bayonetta, but it is alot of fun and isn't super short like alot of games these days. Some of the upgrades and the cool things you can do with said upgrades, you will not find in any other game to date!

So yeah, sure. Don't play it. Go back to whatever generic sequel you are playing and get over it. Or.. Rent this sucker and have a laugh. I give it a solid 7/10. I gave Bayonetta 9/10 and that game was near flawless.

I agree with you, the scores games get when reviewed on most sites are always the reviewers personal oppinion, and lets not forget sometimes they do give games a higher or lower score because of that. I had a few games that had low scores and i still enjoyed them alot, this game combines alot of new stuff plus that fact that i just love 3th person shooters. Even if its not that polished as some other games this still is fun realy, plus not let ppl say its short, because there some high score games out there that not very long either and ppl not complain about it how short it is. Don,t forget sometimes someones oppinion about a game gets clouded because others saying its shit. I say build your own oppinion and just give this game a go :)

Back to the topic of the thread...

The final boss is annoying as hell, true. Even if you figure out what to do, it takes about 30-45 mins to clear. The original poster had some valid points, but if you do the right strategy, there is absolutely no difficulty in the fight (apart from the fact that if your head gets sucked in and you fail the minigame you need to start again). The good thing though is that the game gives you enough to be able to avoid those headsuckers completely.

Clear all enemies (exploding arm helps a lot, also becasue while you regenerate them you are invulnerable against all attacks), move to the back, the platforms mostly will raise you up, so you can avoid jumping around, shoot a few bullets through the portal, jump down, walk through the portal with your sword for extra power and mash the arms, then start over.

Before the boss attack that dismembers you completely Arcadia always warns you, so it is just timing your roll or - even better - your arm regeneration and you will hardly be dismembered. In the second fight you hardly have to kill the enemy waves neither as the boss has a fire attack that you can use to clear out the horde.

Suprisingly easy endboss on normal, Alex was far more frustrating to me. When Arcadia warns you, stop slaying cannonfodder and pay attention to incoming shockwave: thats nothing, but smokewave just after shockwave will shatter you to pieces. Do not roll, just jump over it. Save assault rifle ammo for boss and slice small enemies. D-pad up if getting sucked and equip quick regen ability of course.

The final boss is fucking stupid. First, I can regen my limbs, that makes half the upgrades I brought fucking useless. Second, once I lose a limb, its gone, forever, because those stupid fucking granbabies swallow them every fucking time. Also, he doesn't take any damage when I shoot him through the portal on top of the cliff thing, then my sword does no damage to his snake arms. Fucking hell, worst final boss to a game I've ever played, which is disappointed because the rest of the game was actually good.

Another note: Why the fuck are there instantregen pickups around the battlefield if I CAN'T regenerate my fucking limbs!

The hardest part for me about the final boss was the "jumps" you have to make. Both the one on the ground when he creates shockwave and the ones to get up high and shoot through those circles of light. bTW I've loved this game. Looking forward to hardcore.

But OP, honestly, you're complaining .. because the last boss of the game ... is hard. It's supposed to be hard, it's the LAST BOSS OF THE GAME.
