I mean look at the original E3 footage; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtM3PGyiQUc
Dynamic lighting, every cut being in a constant Jack the Ripper mode, The collapsing ceiling(What's the point of it now btw? It never hurts anyone and if they're above they just pop down.), and even down to the details in the van being cut; the window breaks and shatters independently from the cut of the sword.
Would have been better if Kojima had the balls to keep his crew from arguing.
I do too to an extent but I thought killing everything in one hit would remove the challenge from the game and it does. Fox Blade is perma Jack The Ripper and then some and it makes the game super easy, I'm terrible right now and Very Hard mode isn't causing me any problems.
Currently looking forward to: Devil May Cry 5 and The Rapture.
