It makes all the difference, and now I have all the weapons and abilities at my disposal I am beasting my way through!
Though I am a bit intimidated by that damn ninja demon, most of the time I manage not to get hit, but he counters the crap out of me!
And then for the latter half of the game, just spamming enemies of all kinds at you, it's crazy!
I can honestly say I love this game and put it up there with DMC3, however, I kinda wish vergil turned bad earlier in the game so I could fight him more cause his boss battle was great! I could have gone for that a few more times like in 3.
