Out of all the bosses I've ever fought, I've had the most trouble with this SOB.
I can manage to get to the 2nd form where it turns into a floating jelly thing, but I always end up losing even though I manage to nearly kill it each time.
It seems to be reviving itself somehow, is this correct? I know I'm supposed to use the hyperbeam when standing on the phazon but this is hard to do when so much is happening.
Can someone basically give me a good strategy for beating this boss (both forms) along with the metroids it throws out in the 2nd form? I usually can't avoid losing energy to it in the 1st form, then by the 2nd form I'm so battered that I'm basically fighting to survive.
Also, should I have a certain number of energy tanks before attempting this boss?
