Get shocked by monsters leaping out on you and die. Start from checkpoint, this time know where monsters are. Repeat. In between doing this, press the X button and wave around until you see a light. When you see a light wave around some more, following the instructions.

Straight to the point, its without doubt one of the most lacklustre games I have played. The enemies are largely identical, I can't climb over a low wall, the 'plot' is what I would term mildly diturbing and as for weapons ...
