-Directional inputs for attacks -Crazy combos -Interesting weaponry -Devil trigger that isn't merely a "I DON'T WANNA DEAL WITH THIS ****!" button -Firearms that were more in-depth -Styles (and style switching) -Fun enemies and bosses to fight -Mostly good theme music
I didn't vote because it's not about DMC Dante's coat or hair for me. DmC Dante had a red jacket that was open and his hair turned white in the end. They even added a DMC 3 costume at the end and that still didn't do it for me.
Newer isn't always better. And I shall keep Dante's Force Edge polished and sharp till he comes back.
