It's a superior dmc game across the board really. Not till after you finish DmC and you start up DMC4 do you truly realize it as your nostalgia goggles shatter.
Other than the combat being more fluid, DmC loses on every other level.
Input lag, 30fps, frame skipping, large hitboxes, stiff character movements and animations.
Now that I think about it, maybe more intuitive on the combos or easier would be a better fit.
The problems the three of you are having lie between your hdmi and charging usb cables. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/605602-dmc-devil-may-cry/65305865 --- Rock is fine, scissors are overpowered. -paper
