Once the battle starts,walk down the river. He will make everyone you ever killed attack you. Just shoot them with the SAA (Single Action Army Revolver) once and they will stop. Walk past them and continue down the river. You cannot damage The Sorrow, so don't waste your ammo. Eventually you will find a skeleton floating in the river. That is The Sorrow's skeleton. Walk into it. Snake will appear as if though he is dead. It's actually just a trick. Use a rivival pill. You're now done with The Sorrow. You get his camo, which prevents all step noise. However, I found that it doesn't have a good camo rating anywhere. Lol

Hope I Helped. Please Rate Highly. ^.^

When you reach the sorrow all you have to do is walk forward (try to dodge The Sorrows attacks and the ghosts) untill The Sorrow is standing on the skeleton, walk into the skeleton and then Snake will die, when he dies hold down R2 then go through the list and use the revival pill.

Take note, before head to the end of the river, don't forget to equip 'revival pill'. Now lets go to the action,dont kill any ghost, just head to the end of the river,when sorrow touch you, your life will fall, when youre dieing , old L2 and wait in the screen that says 'continue - quit ' , will appear your equipment list and choose 'revival pill'. . .have fun ;)

You can either walk staright down the river and just wait till he kills you, then reviv yourself with the revival pill. Or just drown yourself and us the revival pill.

Theres a secret boss not many people know about...when your fighting the sorrow save your game and quit...then make sure you set your ps2s eternal clock 30 years ahed of time the load the data that you saved on the game and you will wake up in a strange dark place...A GRAVE!!!!!you will be dead wile your dead use the revile pill and call this frequency-111:11.this frequency was told by the fear when fighting the fear if you interrogate him he will tell you this frequency but you will get no response.but when lying in the grave call that frequency and someone will answer.that person is the PAST the past is the guy that digs you from your grave after that he one will answer your calls because every bodys DEAD!and every body thats alive thinks YOUR dead the only weapons you have are a pistel and a will see a trail...follow the trail and you will find the he is INSANE!he is the hardest boss ever.this is because you can only get to this boss on hard.he has an ak-47 a knife and can freeze time.he also has awesome camo.if you manage to beat him you will get go back to the beggining and will be very week from fighting him...and will get a hiddin chat.but you will have his camo.his camo can change into any camo you have besides it.when ever you go into a place where you need a certaint camo where the past's camo to change into that.this boss and camo can only be acheved onn hard.if you get o this boss...good luck.oh and if you wanna know haow to beet sorrow go to the end of the river and he will kill you.after you die use your revivle pill.

First of all, there's no point in trying to shoot the ghosts, bullets won't affect them. If you aren't using codes, then avoid them and proceed to the corpse of The Sorrow. He will tell you to "go back to your own world" and you will appear to die. When the continue screen comes up, use the Revival Pill, if you still have it.

If, however, you are using codes, then you will need to allow each and every ghost to attack you until they are set free, meaning they float off into the air after a while. You can speed this up by going into first-person view and staring into their faces as they attack you. The only one you might have trouble with is The End, since he just floats on by and is hard to keep in place. But don't worry, his isn't that critical. Once you reach The Sorrow's corpse, then just do as above and use the Revival Pill at the continue screen.

For those who can't get the Revival Pill to work, make sure you actually have it when you face The Sorrow, otherwise you will have to either go back and start over, or use codes to get the pill back.

To use the Revival Pill, just do as the others say and press L1 at the continue screen and while holding L1, press the Use button. It should work as long as you have the pill (which incidentally is a tooth).
