I think this might be the first From game i don't actually beat because of this stupid f***ing boss. Whoever designed this whole fight needs a stern talking to about fun design. Two cheap bosses in a row with lightning fast attacks and broken tracking. Well f***ing done. I am not even remotely surprised people are giving up here, this is too much.

He is 100% cheap, not impossible but definitely a dirty fight

The final boss set is ironically the most fair fight in the whole game. Neither of them have any tricks that break the rules. Between running, jumping and mashing L1, you can handle everything both of them throw at you.

I dunno man it really is fair, just a test of patience and really mastering the mechanics.

It’s gonna take blocking, and perfectly timed parties, doddges and jumps to defeat him.

It’s as demanding as any FROM fight because of the length and little room for error.

Phase 4 was my Achilles geek until I got the lightning timing down and once you do he is easily punished. Deflect the lightning 2-3 times and you can finish him.

Aside from genichiros broken tracking and SS ability to instantly combo you from 20 feet away

Agreed with tc. Possibly the worst designed fight in the game imho.

Genichiro is a joke. It's irritating that you even fight him here, but he's just detritus.

Sword saint is a tough fight but once you figure out the movesets, not so bad.
Hesitation is defeat
