Looking back, it’s actually been a pretty good year for boss fights, whether it’s in role-playing games or Metroidvania titles. However, there have been a fair number of awful encounters. There are also those that, despite their quality, were just plain disappointing for a myriad of reasons. Let’s go over 10 such boss fights here, though be warned that spoilers abound.
Nemesis (Second Form) – Resident Evil 3 Remake
For how disappointing the overall experience was compared to the Resident Evil 2 remake, seeing Nemesis’s redesigned forms in the Resident Evil 3 remake was pretty cool. However, while the second form was appropriately grotesque and menacing with its size and agility, it just couldn’t make up for the removal of the original’s clock tower sequence. At least the Nemesis climbs up on top of the clock tower at some point and mean-eyes at you. That’s kind of neat.
