Did anyone else really hate Act 4?

I mean, innovation is great in games, but did we really need three of those side-scrollers in one act, let alone put a boss in them? I was expecting a kickass fight with that boss, but all I got was shooting aimlessly at a cardboard cutout in a blank background.

Oh, the Big Boner part. Did there really need to be three waves, let alone those waves be difficult as all hell? Every shot you take, you have to hear Garcia yell "TASTE MY BIG BONER", and it gets old quick.

Sorry, just Act 4 really cut the immersion for me.

Everything you just mentioned I agree with 100%

Easily the worst act in the whole game, I went through it a 2nd time for another difficulty cheevo + all the red jems.

Got the red jems done by act 4-5 but can't muster up the effort to go through the 3rd cut out level as it's just so un-enjoyable

I felt much the same way. The first time I got to Act 4, I thought the bullet hell side-scrolling part was pretty cool and a refreshing switch from all the dodge, shoot, dodge, shoot that was before it. But then I got to 4-3 and was like... "really, again? :\" then 4-5 was just overkill.

To beat the boss you have to shoot off the three red parts on her mask then drain her head with the light shot. After that you just dodge the green drops and keep capping her face till she dies. Hope that helps

Is there any way to get her to let go of you once she grabs you? Or do you just continue to shoot her face off and take unavoidable damage?

The only part of Act 4 I disliked was the three individual levels for side-scrolling. Those three levels could have been combined into one level.

I don't really know if u can get her to let go of u, but u won't take any damage as long as u shoot the green drops that are going to hit u. So just do that and keep shooting her. I actually just beat it hard about five minutes ago and it seemed to take about as much time as it did on easy.

I quite enjoyed the side scrolling as was nice break from the main game, I have to agree though with the big boner part at the start of act 4 got extremely tedious after the first wave as you have to play game 3 times for all achievements.

Well I'm completely stuck on the big boner part for a while now, so yes, I now hate chapter 4. And you all say there are 3 waves? If so then I am completely fucked as I can't do he forst one. And who's bright idea was it that you can't skip cutscenes?

I'm really staring to dislike this game because of this

It would be so much better on the big boner section if you could skip the telephone cut scene, and mute Garcia during it. The "joke" got very old very fast.

I got really cheesed off with the 3rd wave it was difficult and yes the joke wore thin quickly. I put on some Slipknot Pulse of the Maggots, and did it in one!
SOTD did lose its edge toward the end(and also became increasingly tough!), but the gameplay was very slick and such a variety of enemies it wasn't enough for me to tarnish its memory too much.

Agreed. The 2D side scroller parts were fine. A nice change. But the Big Boner parts were annoying as hell!

Same sentiment here. Doing my last playthrough on the game on easy to clean up achievements, and I'm stuck at that part again. On easy.

Killing them isn't hard. It's remembering the details for each wave and just waiting for the little jerks to show up so the fast ones don't kill you.

I can't play through it three times because you can't skip the friggin' cutscenes.

I didn't really hate it, it's just that I hated the 2D Segments. They were so annoying and took me out of the experience of the game.
