Yea yea backtracking yada yada, but DANTE DUDE. He was hilarious in that game. He had this air about him. Like everyone was child's play. Sure, one can relate more to Nero in his humanity, but Dante was just a boss in every cutscene he was in. That Shakespearean one comes to mind.
I loved the style switching. It kept battles fresh and allowed you to play how you wanted to. He had variety. Eventually I even warmed up to Nero. That cutscene where Yamato awakens and he's seemingly possessed by Vergil? Chills.
IMO, DMC4 was a step backwards from DMC3 in terms of sheer combat complexity, but other than that, was an excellent game. I don't know why, but the backtracking never bothered me. I quite liked the story (simplistic though it was, as is always the case with DMC). My main regrets were Pandora and Lucifer (both poor weapons IMO), and that Dante feels like he is a cameo character in his own series.
I had many hundreds of hours in DMC3 and DMC4, and would say I loved them both as great games. So, no doubt, DMC3>DMC4, but I still enjoyed DMC4 exceptionally.
I loved 4, lets face it in the long run how many of us were fans of Dante over the actual game... They could have had a monkey instead of him, Dante was 10% of the package imo, so the switch to DMC4 was not even a thought to me.
Loved the devil arm, the rev system, and the pistol shotgun combo. Dantes parts were the only lackluster moment, then again even with that, the gameplay again overwrit the backtracking.
