Chapter 4: Mad Dash Walkthrough
The fourth chapter kicks right into gear with a motorcycle ride down a long tunnel. Unfortunately, it’s not so much a scenic ride through Midgar, as you’ll be met with some unwanted baddies on bikes soon enough. Pay attention to the attack controls on the top left and make sure you’re slashing the Shinra Troopers and drones in the right directions, while guarding whenever you think you can’t avoid damage from the incoming gunfire or grenade explosions. If things get heated, be sure to use the Spinning Slash, too. Keep your fight on, and you should be safe–until an unwanted guest crashes onto the scene.
Bossfight: Roche (Motorcycle Chase)
The final portion of your motorcycle ride pits you against Roche, AKA “Speed Demon.” This adrenaline-pumped maniac is a bit of a pain to deal with. First, use Guard and dodge around to avoid the ranged sword slices he sends your way. If you swerve from right to left, you can easily steer clear of them in time. Pay attention to the pattern, and you can mostly zip past unscathed. When he’s not up close, use L1+Triangle to fire off your own ranged attacks when they’re charged, in order to keep your damage output up.
