The boss is Wyald. He’s this abominable snowman-looking guy, only a lot uglier (he has eyeballs on his shoulders!). I actually died once in this fight. Kinda underestimated him but got him on my next try.
I was really impressed by this boss battle because it was so refined for a Musou game. I feel that it could pass as some sort of boss for other dedicated hack and slash titles, even if a mediocre one. I found it enjoyable and it actually demanded some quick reactions and considerably more strategy than what you might be accustomed to from past Warriors games. Even more remarkable are the game’s mechanics, which hold up quite well during this focused battle. It felt skillful. There wasn’t any of the typical awkwardness you’d expect from a Warriors game. The boss fights in this game truly round out the experience and I can’t wait to fight the next one.
