His grab move is a complete pain in the ass, gets worse the harder the diffciulty as it does more damage (goes for all the grab attacks). That boss is easily my favourite character in the game, tough yet beatable when you know how
Cleared it on my first go in HD! I see what you mean, use of the slide move at the right time evens things up!! Not sure if I think the autoaim for the bow and arrow is a good idea - it keeps up the blistering pace of the game but also takes a bit of the skill out of it.
