It's nowhere near to being one of the best of the genre ever. It is however surprisingly good and for once actually feels like a proper game considering its ninja theory. The colour coded enemies are grating though, not sure why they're in the game at all. It's like they want to punish the player for no reason whatsoever. Argh!
I'll have a better feel of the game on the harder difficulties but i'm worried it'll be a simple case of more enemies with more hp and not much else. Can someone confirm it's not simply a case of repeating the same moves on normal and whittling them down? And is that telltale glint gone from the monsters as they attack? And are the colour coded monsters there as well?
Its the first time a ninjantheory game hasn't made me claw my gaming self out and I even kinda like it. But personally I don't think it's gonna do as well as the two previous games in the series simply because it feels like one step above a by the numbers 3rd person hack and slash but lacking that final thing to make it special. It sure is purdy though.
Ultimately it boils down to the combat and this dmc feels good but not as instinctive as the games I listed above. Another observation is that it feels a lot more forgiving whereas the games I listed punished you hard for a mistake. This is a personal preference but I prefer the latter approach.
