As usual, you seem to have no trouble painting an amazing picture of what it would be like to own and play this game, leading to a remarkably helpful review.


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

See, that's the kind of comment that'll have people wondering if you're my alt. But thanks! I've been brainstorming this review for a while but it took several attempts to work it into something coherent, so I'm glad it worked.

Ooh, nice review. And comforting to know that it wasn't just me in trouble with the two specific late game bosses you named. I got cocky after beating the fan named Giant Enemy Crab early on that everybody complains about, not realizing that was really just the beginning.


''Yes, yes...but apart from all that, Mrs Lincoln, how was the play?''

Blackmore should have been a really intense (in a good way) fight if only for how claustrophobic it was, but the second half was really too much. I've beaten him, obviously, but I'm still convinced that certain combinations of his attacks are impossible to avoid. (Unrelated: Firefox doesn't think "combinations" is a word? WTF?) Eligor wasn't necessarily unreasonable, but bringing him down required you to work at a very slow, deliberate pace to avoid excessive damage, and it was really punishing to spend ten or fifteen minutes chipping away at his health only to die at the last second due to some careless mistake.

It's really those two fights that disrupt the otherwise awesome Boss Rush mode. Because really, the majority of Order's bosses are spectacular.

There's a sneaky way to beat Eligor that doesn't involve a backside attack. And Blackmore is pretty much a Shmup-type boss in that his attacks are relentless and he speeds up like crazy towards the end; but once you have his patterns down, he's so damn predictable.

That's what I dislike about the bosses in OoE. To me, they are intimidating, but way too stiff and robotic.
