I dunno, Nero felt like a complete character in-game, not limited in any way. Tons of moves, most of which also had an EX version, a variable main combo, mini-DTE with exclusive DT stuff, "F*** YOU" and "VROOOOM" buttons - that's a lot, really.
The only thing that certainly was limited by the development time is Dante's story.
He was a good character with a lot of options, definitely. Doesn't mean I don't wish he couldn't have gotten a few different weapons just for the sake of variety. I mean, the Red Queen and Blue Rose absolutely do the job of killing and killing stylishly, but more options never hurt. I suppose they wanted only Dante to be able to get different weapons for some reason.
They shot a diamond made of iron at a car moving at 400 walls per hour-One of the dumbest sentences ever.
