|The 2nd half of this game was unexpectly really hard. Maybe not as hard as SNES Goemon 4, but the longer stages in this made it seem harder. I kept getting gameover at the bosses, and had to redo the whole stage again after grinding for armor/rice balls. |
The bosses themselves aren't that hard once you know their patterns, but they do take a lot of hits even when you're maxed out on experience. Once you learn the bosses patterns they become more of a test of endurance, just repeating the same actions over and over.
I managed to find all but 3 of the fortune dolls in the game. The walkthrough on gamefaqs doesn't even say where all of them are.. hmm that's weird, oh well.
The last stage is brutal.. especially the parts where you have to grapple with Ebisumaru and there's electric moving obstacles that make you fall if you touch them... fortunately this level actually has a save point before the boss, so I didn't have to worry about redoing the stage.
This last stage boss is really cool, she puts on a bunch of different masks that have different attack patterns. At the end she puts on the Sasuke mask, and Sasuke fights back and destroys the boss. The last Impact fight is pretty challenging, but fun.
