Boss battles have traditionally been the icing on the cake of video games. Almost every genre has them, and whilst they are a staple of the industry, there’s some that stand above the rest in terms of difficulty.
Vergil from Devil May Cry was not difficult lol!
Alma is the easiest on that list. With checkpoint feature all you have to do is get lucky by hurting her with a heavy combo.
Checkpoint feature? The game doesn't has that...
Yes, atleast in Sigma it does. When you die you restart facing the boss right away from what I remember. There's harder bosses in that game compared to Alma.
From dmc 3??? Just played that recently and i thought that fight was hard as hell. Harder than any boss in dark or demons souls imo.
I admit I died a couple of times but he was tough, not hard. I was playing on Normal BTW.
I vote for False King Allant. Ornstein and Smough are definitely good picks, though. ("Now Smough and I, we fight with a code of honor. We have a code of honor, don't we, Snoralax?" "Sure do, Pikachu.")
VERY good choice, but it was just a matter of learning his animations and keeping your distance. The long trek back to him was more frustrating than anything. Between Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, Ornstein and Smough are the only bosses that still give me grief. :(
I found allant one of the easier bosses in demons souls as long as you were patient. IMO all his moves were easy to read.
He was, indeed, easy once you know his animation but losing levels to his de-levelling grip meant one would have to level up all over again. I basically summed up backtracking your levels + making way back to Allant + the actual fight and now we end up with a truly griefing boss fight.
(Mega Man 8) That damn Dr. Wiley, first you have to re-fight every boss before him so they can soften you up a lil bit. Then the bastard has like 3 or 4 different forms!!!!
The Penetrator from Demon's Souls Go fight him ALONE. But the fight was fair though. Flamelurker from Demon's Souls That damn boss was hard and unfair. He spams A LOT.
Penetrator is easy. You just have to roll to the side and you pretty much roll under his sword every time and then you can attack and repeat. Flamelurker is also easy, you just need to know the tricks to beat them. There are plenty of harder bosses in Demons Souls or Dark Souls. I'd say Ornstein and Smough, Gaping Dragon, or Seeth the Scaleless were more difficult and harder to figure out how to overcome, and even if you knew the tricks they had more crazy abilities you couldn't really get away from.
I found Flamelurker surprisingly easy in Demon Souls, but I might have had the benefit of the white light or whatever it had when things were a little easier?
The last boss battlein Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep (on the highest difficulty) The fight has 3 parts too it (no checkpoints) and on the last part, the boss spams the hell out an attack that will hit you 95% of the time unless you have perfect reflexes
I don't find the street fighter bosses difficult either. I wouldn't know about the others
I actually think Siren from BioShock infinite is the hardest boss especially in 1999 mode.
bioschok infinite hard lmfao
You haven't tried 1999 mode haven't you?
i actually put the konami code in to start the game with 1999 difficualty such dissapoinment... i guess you should get good.. hard game i consider for example gothic 2
It's subjective whether you consider a game is difficult or not. I may find a game quite easy while you might consider it hard and vice versa.
the article and the writer are simply ridiculous.... DMC4 was a disapointing???? it was the best DMC after DMC1.... new-DMC had a laughable fanboy reaction ??? of course it had ..it was ablsolute garbage game... man get serious ...go play some serious games
Vergil and Alma shouldn't even be on the list
Same with Daimon, fight as a ranger (10 shot ability) with explosive arrows and he drops like a rock.
The writer must be in his teens or 20's. Ninja Gaiden - NES - Bloody Malth /thread
:) you don't know what a hard boss is if you game since 2000.
Radec was a b***
Although it wasn't really a boss. The Trial of Archimedes from God of War: Ascension was a very hard section to play through. They nerfed it but it literally took me like 2 hours to beat it on the highest difficulty before they patched it.
people are still wiping on sarth 3d just throwing it out there
M. Bison in Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Akuma in ANY Street Fighter game.
Out of all the bosses in Ninja Gaiden on Xbox, Alma was the one that I had the most trouble with.
I'm actually at the Smough and Ornstein fight in Dark Souls right now for the first time. Guess I'm in for a hell of a ride.
fight spoiler! stop here to avoid fight tip!
just fight the fast one first while keeping a pillar between you and the bigger one. He's much slower so you should be able to easily keep him at bay while fighting the other one, one on one.
also armor drop depends on who you killed last, forget which gives you what...
Mortal Kombat bosses >>>>> Street Fighter bosses
Dragon's Dogma can be brutal at times. Best RPG I've played though, and I've played many. Check out Absolute Virtue and Pandemonium Warden from FFXI. I think AV was deemed unbeatable for 3 years after its release. http://www.destructoid.com/...
Ozma in FFIX
Mega Man 7 Dr. Wily, especially the 3-ball homing attack that is damn near impossible to avoid.
Not a boss as such, but Oxide's ghosts on Crash Team Racing were outstanding in their difficulty. Some tracks were easy, sure, but others were just merciless. Took me an age to finally beat them all: out of childhood, through the teenage years and into adulthood. And the worst part is you get absolutely f*** all for it noooooooooooo ><
