I was just watching my brother play this and I was wondering if this was the only part of the game where the controls had issues. He was trying to throw the coffins at Blaze and about half the time anything he threw would go off in the opposite direction and sometimes it would even pick them up instead. This was the only part that I saw him have problems using the controls and I was watching him move one direction with the wiimote and the object in game go the other.
When trying to throw something it's always better to aim with the cursor and hit the B button so it's tossed at your target.
When you're just swinging the wiimote, sometimes it will "auto-lock" onto the closest target, other times it'll just fly into any direction, it depends on the sensitivity of your wiimote and sensor.
As for the Blaze fight, don't throw the coffins at him, wait until he creates a ball of fire above his head then steal that from him and toss it at him. If you try to kill him with the coffins the fight'll take a LONG time.
I tossed him into a tree. I lol'd for a good half minute. Anyway, yeah just steal his fireballs and use them against him. Throwing coffins at him gets difficult and if you hold them up for too long he just destroys them.
If your Focus stat is high enough (2 or 3) this is a piece of cake.
Gordo- Every one of those spikes is a middle finger just for you.
