@m3ds334: You nailed every problem with DMC4. It was the first Devil May Cry that I beat, but it definitely had a ton of issues. Though, i'm probably one of the few people that enjoyed playing it "backwards" as Dante, only because he is different than Nero.
That being said, if I want to complain about poor design choices, it's the crappy Dice mini-game and other annoying road-blocks that grate my nerves. That, and the totally apparent "Nero just happens to move in the correct direction, which happens to be a castle exactly like Castlevania in a frozen tundra. NOW I'M IN A RAIN FOREST.
haters are going to hate DmC all they want, Dante is a different character, some of his charm traded for self-centered idiocy. But every good story has characters with an arc for growth. I think what DmC loses in combat (a bit of the precision) it makes up greatly in level design, story and pacing.
This thread is really making me miss Morrowind (I still own it, but... Man, it IS hard to go back to).
It makes me realize what I disliked about Oblivion, and to that respect, Skyrim. The worlds are sorta part for the course, for one (Morrowind is DRIPPING with atmosphere). Also, I truly miss the wonder and excitement of picking up a quest, and navigating by compass/map (and how clever wording like "boots of blinding speed" actually had hilarious results).
Hey all the people who hated the new Dante can now play the new DMC without complaining every second! Full disclosure I liked DMC but I still like the Old Dante look.
Yeah. Although, one thing. Is it just me, or by the time the game ended he looked pretty much like old dante (DMC3 young dante, I mean) except for hair length and color? His face looked aged, and his skin color different
Alright, I'm just saying... I know this is a reboot, so things could go differently... but if you have any affinity at all for the Devil May Cry series, that spoiler shouldn't be much of a spoiler.
However, if you've never touched DMC before, yeah, that kind of sucks to have spoiled for you.
Still kinda sucks. Granted it wasn't spoiled for me, but I know the feeling.
Honestly, for me *MASSIVE FUCKING SPOILERS HOLY SHIT* I was beginning to think Virgil wouldn't end up being a bad guy, despite a few hints. It felt as though they were trying to imply he'd be bad, but weren't necessarily going for it.
