I have literally just beaten this difficulty and while it is fresh in my memory I'm going to share how I did it. There may be some sticky patches throughout the game, but all in all the only thing you truly need to worry about is the fight with Mangog.

First of all know that it may take a lot of practice to get just the right rhythm going for this fight.

Part 1:
- Open with the hammer throw that stuns him (LT + RT) and get in a jumping combo before dashing away.
- As Herps McGirps noted above if you lose more than one or two pieces to your health just restart.
- Your general method for whittling down his health is the stun-combo-dash that you opened with. Problem is you can't instantly stun him, as he becomes invulnerable to it for a while after he is stunned. I used two strategies over the course of my attempts. The First was to run away for ten seconds, and then do the stun-combo-dash assault. The Second was to dash in, hit him once or twice and then dash away while he swung and often missed me, repeating that until he had swung three times and then doing the stun-combo-dash assault. The First method has the benefit of being safer in that you don't have to get close to him when he isn't stunned, but the Second gets in more hits. I recommend merging the two and just feeling the situation to know what is right.
- When you can do the grappling on him do so. For anyone having trouble it's easiest to grab him standing behind his left foot.
- Repeat this general process until you've done it three times and that should be the end of part one. With enough practice it isn't unreasonable to end with absolutely full 'mana' and mostly full health.

Part 2:
- What I found the easiest on this part was try to avoid the small shots he is shooting at you, and wait for the three or four big blob shots that come at the end of every rotation of attacks. They were bigger and much easier to deflect.
- If you have trouble here, like I did, definitely get the power-up. It may be the difference between life and death.
- Three or four of the big blobs reflected back at him should cause him to jump down, obviously avoid the concussion blast from where he lands, and start the sequence. I just repeatedly hit X. For one thing the second time he jumps down will be a sequence requiring you to mash that, and the other times will garner you a little health.
- Do this general strategy three times and you should be able to move onto Part 3.

Part 3:
- Your strategy is a lot like part 1. Dash in, hit, dash out to avoid his attack and back in. Don't put a lot of space between you two or he may begin shooting.
- Eventually he'll jump away and begin powering up a massive attack. You'll be prompted to throw Mjolnir and you want to aim for his head. This will fill your RB power instantly, and use it.
- When doing the grapple on him as he focuses on Loki, just keep hitting X for whatever health you can get from him.
- You'll need to do this a total of four times.

Hopefully this will be of help to someone. Like I said it will require practice, it took me a couple of days to get the rhythm and methodology down, but all told I didn't take any damage during Part 1 or Part 3.
