So play the demo last night.

Ionno Im left with mixed feelings.

The graphics are a huge step up from NG2 but everything else feels steps backwards.

The gameplay is defanitly weaker. Instead of having multiple unique weapons you have tons of different swords for different styles. Fast and weak, medium power and speed, slow and strong.

The dashing is pretty cool however.

Combos leave alot to be desired compared to DMC or NG.

The framerate doesnt seem like 60fps to me a all which is something I feel is ever so critical in a action game. More so than shinny graphics.

The game however only features English voice acting which is pretty nice touch for us importers. Whenever they talk in Japanese it has english subtitles.

The QTE's simply fucking suck. If you die you just do them over again. There is no multi branching paths for getting different rates on them. You can get goods or greats and it doesnt matter at all.

I momstly found it annoying. Between the QTEs and the run to get to the boss, I was really turned off of it.

I expect this game to rate in the low-to-mid 80's on MC. Graphics are amazing at times and the QTE events are epic, but I agree, multi-branching paths would have made them better. I didn't have any issues with the frame-rate, it seemed silky smooth to me. Real-time changing of weapons is nice, but the combat is more simplistic then NGII. Although, the higher-level combos can be pretty cool. I also like that you can customize your character's looks. It's about an eight hour campaign, so I have to give it a hit on length, too. I do think it edges out NGII because of all the technical problems that game had, though. It's a great rental and a solid-buy for fans of hack n' slash action games.

Here is a preview thread I created with detailed info about the game:
