Is anyone else disappointed by Vergil's weapon sound?

Every time he swings or unsheathes it, it doesn't sound quite like a katana. That is probably the only nitpick I have with Vergil's Downfall. Anybody else feel the same, or is it just me?

I feel your pain. It doesn't have that tingling sound every time he sheathes it. But not to mention that DmC Yamato is generally too short as well. But the thing I like is the new ways he sheathes it, like behind his back. That's badass.

Not really liking the demon mode sounds. It doesn't seem to make sense.

I don't really mind because the sound design in DmC is generally superb anyway.

I don't like the squishing sound yamato makes when he hits the demon minions. I want some quality Rurouni Kenshin sword sound effects!

Yea, agree. It sounds... I dunno, nasty. Like a cross between running a blade through a body and someone getting head or chewing a mouthful chicken close to a mic. Dante's slash sound effects sounded good in this regard compared to Vergil's.

I thought the sound engineering for this game was really exceptional, actually. When it comes to Yamato, I feel the same- it sounds great to me. Yamato isn't just any sword.

I agree to an extent! I just wish it sounded more sharp and brutal. Like Vergil was purely slicing rather than hacking. Again it might just be me though.

And of course, everyone hates that gay sound he makes when a ravager(the chainsaw guy) hits vergil.

Same here pal, same here.
It sounded so awesome in DMC3, with that strange kind of ring to it.

Yeah I agree. Sounds like a bunch of sharp winds swirling.

Agreed. Yamato would have sounded better with sharper, screechier sounds that made you hear like it was one of those "so sharp you get by looking at it" kind of blades.

Not that I complain about the current songs, but combat would have been, say, 1% more enjoyable just by hearing Yamato in action.

Y'know what the Yamato sounds like? A realistic sword in use :/

There is no distinct "katana sound," it's just a perception people have because of SFX in media. Sure it doesn't sound cool like we're used to, but I actually gotta give them credit for having more realistic sound design :p
