finally found the right song, this is a nightmare to describe, no lyrics or anything!
I had difficulty with this boss on the XBox 360. I kept dying running in amongst the Octabrains so I found the easiest way was to hide by the hut with my back to the wall, strafe left and fire a volley of missiles at them then strafe back behind the hut (that way you do not get any direct hits from them throwing back your missiles or firing their own weapons) and, as other people have said, once thay are gone the Octaking is pretty easy.
I had made my mind up not to get and Knight Morpher stuff until I saw your review. Git! Great interlude in the middle!
I still have my Carnivac, he is a minter. Love him
I saw this in the US in 1986 and I'm sure I remember Prime crumbling after he died, but every time I have watched it since he remains intact, albeit grey... am I mad?
