I played every dmc game so far. And i honestly dont care what dante looks like.but come on weres the action pack cutscenes? And what happen to dante doing some bad ass weapon demos when he got them from a boss.and when did vergil become a weak cry baby even in the dlc. I mean weres the crazy over the top action?
Your mistake is to think that the problem of this game was because they changed dante's hair, it is a lackluster game on every aspect, with dumbed down gameplay, dumbed down difficulty, unlikable characters, juvenile story telling that has pretensions of being shakesperian, add the way that NT and Capcom handled everything, insulting the fans, etc
If and I mean IF they had some cool bossbights and better enemy variety and AI and they had a better Devil trigger this game would have been pretty slick. But no it didnt happen. lot of promise just didnt reach it.
No more cool cutscenes with Dante showing off his skills. Except in the beginning. That's all I could remember. He was more mortal here than usual. Barely displays supernatural strength. Bayonetta was more superpowered than Dante and I enjoyed it better than this. Also the way Vergil destroyed the hellgate was boring. He could have hacked it to pieces but no...he just pointed his Yamato to the gate. -_-
Series should evolve along with its fanbase. Fans of the game has matured already and Dante regressed to a teenager...for the 2nd time. We saw Dante reinvented once, now again. It just doesn't work. It did work though for Tomb Raider, she was remade a horrible one, and then a good one, and then an even better one. But just doesn't work for Dante because he looks worse here than in 3. He has that I don't give a f attitude about the world which he loses as he interacts with Kat instead of being inherently there in DMC 3.
