Lol ya. The first time I was playing, I improvised the whole thing.
Shot all the blue crystals cause I figured that they were important. Then I got to that part where I have to stun him... I thought those things were fucking turrets and I was like HELL YA DUDE.
... after about an hour [exaggeration] I killed his back. After that, I just didn't care anymore and let myself die while fighting the knights.
I love the DMC series...It never fails to amuse me with its level of difficulty...but I heard rumors that DMC 4 is quite easy compared to its previous installments....I hope it is not true though...cause I like it for its constant challenge it provided me...
I play this game already and it have different levels of diffculty so i don't think that it easy at all.
The bosses were definitely easier than those in the past games... the regular enemies though, were a complete and utter set of bitches to put up with. The Blitz were especially annoying, and the Knights just got tedious after I got lazy.
Bosses are so incredibly easy till DMD, after that they DT and kick the shit outta you. Still, with enough skill and overwhelming power you can beat them down. The most annoying enemy has to be Chimera-Assault. Jesus they kick my ass up and down the stage. Blitz are more of a nuisence now, beating them is so easy.
Dante - Gunslinger + Omen (Forward + Style) takes of their shield in 1 hit. Alternatively, Shotgun to the face does it all the same. If you're really good, you can RG cancel the first Gilgamesh punch over and over again.
After that bust out the Swordmaster and Gilgamesh and Real Impact (Backward + Style) the Blitz in the face with DT active after that shotgun to the face and wait for it to get back up before doing it again. Couple more shotgun blasts and it'll die.
Nero - Charge Shot level 3, 2-3 of those and his shield will go down. After that all you need to do is DT Buster his ass, after that ends Streak towards him and Buster him again, streak and final buster and he'll die.
Game almost made me cry!
Felt like I was watching a movie, as on the 3 bombastic fights all my contribuition was: sit back and look at it! As if were me playing something horrible would happen.
The combat is fun enough..
But its greatness if instantly crushed, by the shitness of time jumping puzzles with fixed cameras spawning monsters when you fail!!
And if that wasn't enouth we have the dice game part! And after mid point onwards felt like Silent hill 4.. And I didn't like them, I don't like it now!
Revisiting all you did in reverse order is not a good idea.
Well I wouldn't expect anything else tho, as no series is ever good after been shaken down so many times in sequels.
Whats good about the game? Combat
Whats bad about the game? EVERYTHING ELSE!
So I hardly would ever recomend it to someone just for that.
I didn't know Yahtzee posted on ST. Do you have anything else to say other than quoting Zero Punctuation? lol
-\ DMC4 was great, Ire, wtf you talkin bout.
I mean shit, what's bad about a game where some chick (Gloria) can be shown and make some people (me) think "omfg, did I just see a cgi pussy"?
<-- Not joking.
That, and the story had actual twists... not so much in the other ones.
