There's something very annoying about the last boss, Norman. Now I really don't mind a hard boss, but I've tried 50 times now and what happens has been the same almost every single time: First phase with single Norman: I manage to handle it, often without getting hit once. Second phase with double Norman: I have no trouble telling one Norman from the other, but I a certain to get killed with repetitive cheap shots due to the fact that more often than before, many shots just don't count. Is it the hitbox? I don't know. all I know is I end up shooting at the purple smoke-Norman 2-3 times without him taking a hit, and then of course I take a hit. Repeat until I ran out of herbs and die.
I don't know if this is due to the fact that the CPU is on edge due to three characters on screen or what ever the matter is, but my verdict is clearly that the final boss fight is broken.
I agree, I am doing a Casual run for "Aloof Challenger" and I am absolutely dreading the inevitable bulls*** that fight brings. Is it possible without healing? Thank God you can use the normal Rocket Launcher. Norman was hard enough on Normal difficulty.
Make sure to aim at his heart or whatever his front weak spot is, that should register as a hit and interrupt his attack. As for hitting his back weak spot, I have no idea how to consistently hit that. I f***ing hate Norman. He almost makes me miss the chainsaw sisters in RE4, lol.
