Everything is reliant on blade mode and parrying, the latter of which I still kind of suck at.
Dodge, I cannot stress that enough. X plus Square,(or A and X if your on X-Box) Plus the left stick to dodge, and ninja run as often as possible. I find parrying easy myself, I can parry Ray's head on attacks in very hard mode, as well as his direct sword swings and so on rather easily. Just aim in the direction of the attacks and block. Or dodge and counter. Both work farely well, and you'll need to master them to survive the bosses on higher difficulties. F*cking Monsoon....
Blade mode is a bit complex from a technical perspective. You dond just hack away, you need to aim. You could just use the right stick to aim, but I find lining up the cut with the right stick (Like hold it in one direction, "About to cut.) and hitting square or triangle (X or Y) to be easier for precise cuts. Hope that helped. Remember though, Square/X For sideways cuts,Triangle/Y For downward/upward cuts.
Thanks for the advice, Beastprowl!
Damn, I didn't even know you could dodge. I'll definitely give that a try.
As for parrying, I find it hard to get the timing right. Mostly I end up blocking instead.
Ironically, I'm not so bad with blade mode. More often than not, I can score a Zandatsu. I also use a similar technique for cutting. I line up the cut, and simply release the stick to cut. I find that pushing the stick to the opposite side to simulate a cut to be very inaccurate. I'll try out your technique, as it seems like an even better way.

I started the campaine mode, but when I got to the level where you play as Bruticus, it keeps freezing my PS3 up.
Now I have to see if I can replace it with another copy.
Before resorting to that, try restarting the mission and trying again. This is a common issue, ESPECIALLY with Bruticus. Restarting the whole mission from Chapter select is the only fix I know, and it may still freeze up a couple more times down the road...
I'm going to try that right now. Thanx. I don't know why I never thought about that
Freezing is a well-known problem with the WFC and FOC games. Getting the disc replaced won't guarantee a glitch-free game, as it's a software problem. IMO, try out what Beastprowl advised, and it that doesn't work, remove the disc, delete the game data (NOT your game save data, but the data the game installed into your console) on the PS3 and reinsert the disc. That usually works, for some reason.
