The controls are very complicated with the crossbow.
I am now stuck on Tiamat.

You have to

1. pick up a bomb
2. throw it at her
3. target a torch then target her then fire your crossbow

and at the same time, keep dashing to avoid getting hit.
I cannot get thru this.
thinking of throwing out this game. really pissing me off.
Ughh, wait until you get her onto the ground.

Spoiler:
You're given a chance to hit her with the inert bomb / crossblade combo right at the beginning, in between the archways when she lingers. Take it and, yes, aim for the head with the bomb. Seems to be the best way.

The second hit will depend largely on luck and quickness, and it stinks (played on Normal). The only hint I can give is to target Tiamat while dodging fireballs and the scraping claws, because it makes the dodges much more effective and easier to pull off. It took me several tries before I got beyond this point.

When she's on the ground, you've got to do a lot of dodging of fireballs and a particularly annoying bellyflop attack. It helps to have a Rage boost and/or the spinning blade technique to nail her while she's down. Prepare to do a button-mashing sequence, as it'll help if you land it -- but it's quick.

Re: Darksiders (PS3/360)...Bring on the Apocalypse!!

finally beat her after over an hour of trying.
The hard part was hitting her 2x with the crossbow/bomb. Once she is on the ground, it was fairly easy.

are the other boss fights even harder or just as hard?
i would hate to restart from the beginning on easy.

Must have been because I was getting my ass handed to me during the crossblade sequence that I became frustrated with the ground combat. It's simple hack 'n slash / dodging, but I continuously has a small amount of health going into it.

Nah, keep going. There are some that are frustrating, but doable from hereon out. Only one other gave me fits like Tiamat.
Spoiler:

Silitha, the teleporting spider more prone to being stunned than actually taking damage. Found that out the hard way.

I found that patience wins out with the boss battles. A few hits here, a few hits there, take your time. Tiamat was definitely the toughest.

Tiamat was the most difficult boss in the game by far because your health was so low at that point.

No. I haven't even got any notice after the day I submitted my order. Ever time I check my status on www.findmyorder.com, it just says "Order Complete".

I really need to contact them to find out WTF is up.

what items are worth buying?

From the Darksiders website:

Wondering where are your copies of the Darksiders Hellbook and Red Faction: Guerrilla? They should start appearing over the course of next week, starting March 23. The wait is almost over!

The Stygian & Tiamat were by far the worst bosses in the game.

Re: Darksiders (PS3/360)...Bring on the Apocalypse!!

i seem to have screwed up this game.
I killed slitha, save then exit the game.
now when i return, siltha is no longer there, there is a big hole where she fell so it seems like she is still dead, but my objective still says to destroy siltha.

tried to follow the orange marker on my map, but it just leads to a deep valley in the ashlands.

any help?

Maybe you just need to go down into the hole where her body is and collect the heart? Have you done that yet?

46 days later, and without fanfare, I got my copy in the mail today. Also came with Darksiders: Digital Hellbook. Interesting.

Did you see the cutscene that involved taking out the heart when she died? If not, you need to drop down to the bottom of the hole where her body is.

I got my copy of Red Faction in the mail today, so keep an eye out.

It had regular retail packaging, but they cut the barcode through the case.

Pretty happy for $5.

In related news, Red Faction Guerrilla is a lot of fun. It's like Just Cause 2 without the unlimited frustration. And on Mars.
