Hell... the Kulshedra weapon lets me easily do the jump-cancels that I could never perfect when playing DMC... game let's you feel completely badass from the start.
Only real complaint against the game is its sporadic and really sudden quick-time events.
Like the part where there's fire everywhere... and suddenly the tower falls. AWW DAMN, missed the timing... there goes my perfect score...
On the other hand... it's got some of the best quick-time events I've played through too. Really love how they make you spam the buttons to power up certain moves. Like when you throw that dragon-angel all over the place haha... I got shivers all over.
Plot is kinda weak and extremely predictable, but you forget all about that when in the next second you're slaughtering angels at supa-dupa speed.
A real thrill this one... just don't take the game too seriously. It's over the top in every aspect.
