    This mode is super easy actually. I beat it the fourth day I bough this game and I wasn't even really playing. The only tips I can offer are.

    1/ Play it through on easy to get all the skills you can.
    -Buy the skills arm tear off, splatter smash, pick up and attack with weapon Skills. They are the most important ones.
    2/ Use the "arm tearoff" move a lot.. Its B+B. In this movement you are invincible.
    3/ When you have an arm as a weapon. You have to buy thsi skill first. Use it on other enemies as much as you can. The action is the same. B+B. In this mode you are invicible, no matter how many are around you.
    4/Use the Splatter Smash LT+ Y as much as possible. This is super strong and could take off up to 60% on big guys too.
    5/Medium size enemies that the wip arm guys are super slow. If there are a lot of them. Bunch them together and Splatter Smash them.
    6/ Dont forget to use your Splatter kill when you can. You are no only invicible in this mode, you get energy and mask back.
    7/Bosses are so easy. Spam them with Splatter smash and then mash your XXXXXX. You not only get your mask meter back. You can rinse and repeat.
    8//The only 2 enemies to look out for really are the simple glowing blue guys that rip your arm off. If they hit you once, its either instant kill or almost death. Kill them quickly. The other one is the squid like ones. They can make all enemies invicible. Kill them fast with a well aimed splatter smash from afar. instant kill most of the time.
    9/ Near the end you have to fight 2 copies of yourself. This is the only part that may give you a little trouble. Just go into beseark mode and kill them fast.

    hope this helps. Trust me, this game is really easy even on brutal.

    DetsEightyOneHe 'wasn't really playing' and found it 'super easy' because he CHEATED. Your solutions are crap because you always say how 'easy' something is, but of course its easy when you cheat. Why don't you remove your solutions because they have no credibility.

    They do actually have enough credibility to squeak by.

    For the bit at the end of Phase 11 with the two doubles and on Brutal, this is what I did.

    Make sure to have the pipe from the sidescrolling part just prior to the battle. Try and have a full or nearly full blood bar going into the battle. Don't go immediately into Berserker mode as you can still do a good bit of damage in normal mode. Use your Right Trigger + Y attack till you are at about half your life. Go into Berserker mode. Spam your Left Trigger + Y attack, trying to get both into your area of effect.

    If you are lucky, you'll kill at least one of them while in Berserk status. When you come out of the Berserker mode, continue to use the Right Trigger + Y effect, as long as your pipe holds out. When you get a full blood container, hit the remaining double with the Left Trigger + Y attack.

    I got this on like the third or fourth try. I had MUCH more difficulties with the bit on the falling platform that spawned all those blue zombies.

    For the final defense part, make sure to rip an arm off of one of the enemies, then do the B + B attack to one-shot others. Use the Left Trigger + X attack to clean out enemies that may bunch up.

    The end bit I managed on the first try on Brutal.
