I'm assuming you just started,so Normal.The game is somewhat hard,what you must remember mostly is save ammo,so use this trategy: 1.shot enemy in head 2.get near him and press A 3.while he's on the ground,bring your kniive and slash him 4.Rinse and repeat This is the easiest way to do it,also,1-1 is actually hard due to the village fight,so don't worry,you may die a few times but you will do it (if you want to skip that fight,go up/down the stairs on the big tower repeatedly,the enemies won't hurt you that way,and the fight ends in like 5-6 minutes) --- Check my FCs in my profile,thanks.

The beginning is the hardest part of the game imo, where ammo is the most scarce and the enemies gang up on you just as much as later parts of the game. I don't know how far you've gotten, but if you can make it past the Ganados' Last Stand (in the small house), you should be good. That and the part of the village with the two-part medallion is always the hardest part of the game for me. --- "A smooth operator, operating correctly"
thanks everyone. i've managed to get past the part with the lake monster where you're on the boat and have to throw those spear things at it. wow, this game is just brilliant, i can't believe its last-gen. i have died quite a few times though, but i love it! i was speechless after having my head chainsawed off for the first time.
