How do I not die in close combat in Space Hulk?

Post by UnholyTancred » Fri Oct 05, 2007 7:25 pm

Last night I was drinking copious amounts of vodka and decided to give Space Hulk a spin. I was instantly amazed at how awesome this game is. It's like RTS and FPS.

I died about 5 seconds in when I first started playing it.

"Sergio proceed into this room."

But I decide to turn around and I notice I have teammates. "Oh cool!" Then I turn back around and alien instantly falcon punches me in the face. Instant death.

Next time around I just charged and started killing anything. Died in close quarters once again. And this kept happening over and over again. Finally after I drank half a bottle of vodka did I finally beat the mission somehow. I was damn surprised. 2nd level is practically the same as the first. "Close the doors, etc" except now I'm Matthias. I tried it 5 times. 4 times I died. The 5th time all my teammates died.

So, how do I not die in close quarters combat? I heard mashing A makes you falcon punch the dude in the face and mashing B was supposed to make you parry. However, I cannot seem to parry for some odd reason. Either I mash the dudes face in, or I get my face mashed in.

There's a bit of a strategy to it... http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/3do/file/584497/2180

Shoot them. Up close combat favors the dudes who don't need the guns, obviously.

Ah now I've realized that the names are just different campaigns. I thought they were different levels. The reason why I kept losing Sergio's second mission was because too many of my buddies died in the first one. With Matthius I've gotten a bit further into the game now I'm fighting some weird knight type things. Hard as hell.

Dammit those knights are frigging hard.
