Backtracking in an awesome environment is way better than DmCs platforming. Also you cant call them lazy without sounding like a hypocrite because of NT(e.g.using same codes as other games/ same colors...etc).
At least they hid it, unlike Itsuno. He just said "welp, now that you're here, walk the way back :) Hope you liked the bosses, you'll be fighting them another 2 extra times! Enjoy multiple Dice games inside the Savior as well".
Did you seriously complain about the dice game? I mean cmon thats pathetic. Besides the game was rushed. Whats NTs excuse? The platforming in DmC was fun at first but just gets soooooo boring. Its the same thing over and over and over and over again. Atleast we backtracked with a different character and different waves of enemies.
DMC clearly has a more interesting sense of style than the standard 4 has.
Absolutely not. What's so interesting about it? It looks bleak and boring as hell. Sure, the night club stages for instance have some cool colours and lights going, but it gets really old and nauseating after a while. Everything else is red or blue/orange.
Much prefer the dark, gothic fantasy styles of the classic series, especially 1, 2 and 3. Both DMC1 and 3 start in the evening and ends the next dawn IIRC. They're pretty much set in the night for the most part.
I much prefer that over the bright and vibrant settings of DMC4 and DmC. 4's forest area is just too much.
I guess I just generally don't like bright light. Meh.
