yea that boss is where i actually had to start trying and started to use some tactics, they were run and gun, er slice, tactics but tactics nonetheless! I just finished the game on normal, im under the distinct impression that ign is full of idiots, well i already thought that but this game and their review of it really drove that one home, their just dumb. i get a few things they complained about but overall i dont know what they were thinking, and im pretty sure they didnt finish the game when they wrote that review or they quit paying attention during the end. i enjoyed the game and the story is rather good if you pay attention and actually try to understand what is going on and why certain things happen the way they do. the repetition can get annoying at times if it bogs you down and if your in a bad mood but once you get into a good rhythm it isnt so bad. im gonna go back and try it on hard in a couple days and see how it plays on that....but overall im happy with it.
