Is the chainsaw guy beatable?

#1 Edited by SmugDarkLoser (4619 posts) -

Can you actually beat the demo chainsaw boss?   Because if you can, he's hardas heck, tons of gun shots, 10 or so shotguns, 5? red barrels, 4 uppercuts, and a couple knives.  How the hell do you beat this guy?

Edit: as for my impressions of the game,. it's good, but it's not what people said RE4 was, not even close.  I don't know how it stacks up, but while it is good, it's basically how I've viewed RE4 from the sidelines.  Neat, but AAish I'd say.  Dead Rising is better I think (which really is a heavily modified Resident Evil in a way)

Yes hes very beatable. I honestly found him a bit easier than the Executioner on the first level. Once you clear out the area of other guys pretty well, and save all the barrels to shoot at the perfect time, just make sure you have plenty of ammo. Keep shooting him in the face, and go and hit him when X prompts and he stumbles. Probably a bit harder playing with an a.i partner if you indeed were. I did it with a friend.

Mainly you just gotta make sure you got the sufficient ammo ahead of time, and don't waste it on the normal enemies and save it for him. I ran out of ammo myself the one time, and my friend had to finish him off while I kinda kited him away. Yeah almost forgot the grenades, I had one and a friend had one(or an incend nade, can't remember which) but they definitely helped as well, but if you have ammo its definitely possible to beat him without them.

He is not only beatable - you have to beat him to complete the level. He has a shitload of health, but is not that hard - use the red barrels, the electric thingy, and melee attacks. Oh, and those two grenades also come in handy.

ah... whatever, it's my first RE like ever... except umbrella chronicles (horrible, horrible game)

#5 Posted by Icemael (6320 posts) -

If you've got a friend you can use one of those co-op super-melee attacks too.

you can beat both bosses, pretty easy tbh.

Electric thingy?

#8 Posted by Icemael (6320 posts) -

It's an electrical box on a pole(at the car opposite to the bus). If you shoot it it falls down and stuns enemies, and you can reuse it a couple of times by shooting it again.

If you have umbrella chronicles (I assume you have a Wii then) you should look into RE4.

I didn't play the demo long, but that guy and the executioner are tough as hell. I screwed up by getting too far from Shiva, and she got wasted while I was still shooting from a safe distance.

Excecutioner simply slaughtered me when I wasn't looking:P. I'll have to go back to the demo and give it another shot.

I took him down easily with my buddy. He's a slow mofo. It takes a while, but it's not difficult.

Umbrella Chronicles isn't that bad. But then I absolutely love light gun shooters.

And you really should get RE4 on the Wii. It's the definitive version of the franchises best game.

Maybe you just don't like on-rails shooters.

But you still have to get Resident Evil 4 on the Wii.

^ Agreed.

Umbrella Chronicles was pretty awesome. I don't see how any person that has an interest in light gun games couldn't like it. It is RE...on-rails. And it does the job admirably. 'Nuf said.

Smug, RE4 is 100 times better. The controls are broken in this game. Do not jufge RE4 based on RE5.

#24 Posted by SmugDarkLoser (4619 posts) -

^ they do have the RE4 control setup in this, it's control style B I believe (rotate camera with r thumb, r trigger aim, x shoot)

I think it's that I prefer more arcadey ones.  House of the Dead 2 and 3 are awesome in the arcade (havent tried a home version) as well as all those cop killing 1 shot kill ems.
Just didn't get much fun out of this.  It's like they wanted to be a shooter that was limited to rails, it just felt weird.

I love the controls for RE5.
And to kill the chainsaw man just shoot his eye alot, and shoot barrels, ect.

This. My username comes from a boss in RE4, that should tell you something:P.

use your grenades, shoot then run up and punch. its pretty easy.

tip - put the grenades on either up, down, left,right on your inventory so you can quick switch using the d-pad

That was.. unnecessary? If you posted it you should agree.

I found the best way to kill him was walk him by the exploding barrels (cliche), Make sure you uppercut him when stunned.  Also, pick up any grenades or request them from Sheva.

#32 Posted by ShadowKiller (894 posts) -

I've yet to kill him once after trying 2 or 3 times. I find the Hammer guy was easier for some reason. And yeah definitely get RE4 for the Wii it is honestly one of the best games ever

This makes me want to play the demo again when I get home...for the 4th time.
