    Only skimmed through the video but it seems his problem is that he wants to spar with monsters and hasn't figure out you can't do that here.

    There's no dodging in this game, you simply don't move fast enough for that.

    in this worth pirating for a few hours of mindless fun?

    If yes, is it worth buying for that reason, too ?

    And the fact that he's playing with a controller isn't helping either...

    Well I was under the impression at least. His aim is simply too erratic and sluggish, and maybe that's just my imagination but I think I heard the distinguishing "clicks" controller triggers produce. Some people in the chat were referring to it too. In any case I have never seen anyone playing a fps so badly, it was actually painful to watch.

    You can't dodge shit no matter what you retard. All you can do is run around like an headless chicken and take advantage of any opening you find, and when monsters get too numerous you use one of the convenient get away options you get in the map, like a jumping pad, or a teleporter.

    If he used a controller it would explain it. I mean, this is Romero:



    He is no pro material but certainly competent enough.

    My experience with the game so far says otherwise.
    I've even managed to dodge an arachnatron's fire at close range a couple of times.

    EDIT:
    One thing I forget to mention in my impressions post was how much faster the enemy projectiles are in DE. In the og games I are not particulary fast, and unless there's a large amount of enemies in a relatively tigth space, I can dance around the projectiles. Here there was one hallway in the 2nd level, where the mancubus appears for the first time, and even though I had a good 30 meters distance between him and I, his plasma balls closed that distance in no time.

    That was only in the usa/europe version. Japs pulled a prank on westerners that complained DMC2 was easy by replacing medium difficulty (Devil Hunter) with japanese Hard difficulty (Son of Sparda).

    It is peer pressure and fear of losing jewtube street kredits. It is "if everyone says that it is great because mug hype,then i can't say it is shit" kind of logic,also the fact that all the youtubers are generic blobs of casultardism! Same shit was with outer worlds.

    if it was peer pressure then we'd already have a good amount of contrarian reviews to get those sweet click bait views and kool kid kredits
    maybe the game is simply fun and breath of fresh in a CoD/Fortnite infected genre despite it's flaws

    Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Game is actually good and to me an improvement on its predecessor. Faster, more variation and good humor with oodles of action and style. Played the 'demo' version and then bought it. Didn't expect to like it as much as I do.

    gunslinger doesn't do all that damge so you'd take away to fucking long to complete even simple encounters on SoS and specially DMD where enemies can active DT

    Dashing is used for dodging, and works very well. Pinkies pretty much require you dash to the side to avoid their charge.

    Enemies will also try and predict your path, and so I have managed to get the upper hand by sitting still for a moment and then dashing to pick up speed again.

    This game is meant for FPS veterans, and not easy campaign CoD players. Play it on the lower difficulties if you are having trouble and don't want to figure out what to do.

    There's a great rune that refills your dash when you glory kill, so if you stagger a big demon far away you can dash in, kill it and get health, and dash backwards back to where you were.

    I upgraded almost everything at the moment. You should also be able to use the distance finisher ability as well to let you teleport past groups of monsters, but I haven't tried that yet with the upgrade.

    I prefer to jungle jim around and pick off enemies like a Predator. Once you get into a style of play the game takes a life of its own.

    I'm very positive about the game and the Hell level is truly a sight to behold but I don't like that none of these reviewers are pointing out flaws in the game such as invisible walls, being able to clip in geometry that looks like you could access and most importantly the lack of interconnected levels. The whole game seems to be made after the second half of 2016 level design wise, with locking doors behind you. Exploration-wise, this game has nothing on games like Ion Maiden or even the first half of 2016. I want to be able to appreciate the level art from new angles, find stuff earlier than official, develop a "relationship" with the level, if that makes sense.

    I know they have some really good level designers there but for some reason it is the weak link in this game. It's quite disheartening that people can't appreciate good level design anymore.
