This game is too damn good, I can't remember the last time I've had so much fun.
Thank you, /v/, sincerely.
Most of the difficulty is just being aware of mechanics and avoiding telegraphed attacks. It's much easier to get into than something input intensive like DMC4.
You can get through most DMC games without really being proficient at them. I guess the same isn't true for God Hand, but for both games learning how to play stylishly is where the real fun lies.
The first punch should have decent reach and fast startup frames, and you should save your multi hit moves for later in the combo. Also, save any moves with long animations for the other face buttons.
>It's the challenge that bothers me.
Was it really even that hard? I don't remember it being like that. DMC3 on the other hand....
I always did the trick where you dash forward and and kick and the enemies fly backwards or just ran away to single them out. Hope that helps.
