Silent Hill 2 Maria/Mary boss trick

I believe I have the right to brag endlessly about this, especially since I've never heard of anyone talking about this before. :mrgreen:
This boss fight can seriously be won in 5 seconds: Equip the Great Knife, time your attack and just strike. She will go down.

I'd love to see a video showing this. To time that strike would be very difficult ....

Off topic....but....when you are fighting Mary/Maria.....you only find out if it's either Mary or Maria after the fight or cutscene correct? I say that because both Mary and Maria are using the same character model in the end when you fight them right?.....it has been years (probably goin' on 7 or 8) since I played SH2...
Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding....these are the basic fundamentals of life....

If you can't amaze them with brilliance, baffle them with bulls**t...

You find out before the fight. The cut scene happens before Mary/Maria turns into the final boss ...

On Easy and Normal, you don't really even have to time the attacks. You can either run around and shoot traditionally or you can equip the Great Knife and just keep slicing her up until she goes down (and that's pretty quick on these difficulties). Saves a lot of time, and since James has a lot of HP on those difficulty levels he can easily survive getting choked two times before having to use any medicines. However, even on Normal difficulty overhead Great Knife attacks didn't bring her down in one strike for me.

I did beat SH2 on high difficulty fighting but I never tried Great Knife-ing the final boss on it, though.

Or don't fight back at all and let the timer go out.

So is that fight "timed" or can you actually deplete her health?...I think this was also an option for the PH encounter earlier in the game. I guess what i'm saying is, will the game end earlier if you take down her health or are you actually just wasting ammo since the battle is timed anyway?.....I always used ammo...even with the PH encounter....

We had a member go through all the fights because they are all timed. I think the Eddie fight is an exception. I never tested this myself because it takes a lot of patience.
