Rick goes directly into Hell to save Jennifer's soul - and he escapes with it, bringing Jen back to life in the process. He went through Hell and back to save the woman he loves. Damn.
Remember how in the first game how Rick punched knives in the second boss? Well, in the third boss, HE PUNCHES A FLYING CHAINSAW!
With the ability to tell a proper narrative, we see Jennifer actually show some resistance against Dr. West. By stabbing him through the skull with a jagged ritual knife. Admittedly he just pulls it out and laughs, but if he hadn't been immortal, the game would have been over much quicker.
The Biggy Man fight. First he evokes some good ol' nostalgia with the 2D fight, and then when you think he's down, BAM! You've fallen through the floor. And then you knock heads and try to Splatter Kill him, the bastard manages to get over that as well and when you finally do kill him, it's with his own chainsaw hand, which you drag along with you to the next level.
The greatest part is what comes next: A DUEL OF CHAINSAWS, on the very verge OF THE END OF THE WORLD. What can be more epic than that?
