It's funny because not only Vergil is better than Dante (and more fun to play), but also it's so much harder! Vergil is not a crowd control monster like Dante, he's much more one-on-one action (which I love, since it was pretty much a series staple), so things like Hell and Hell might actually be a legit challenge.Yeah, the first thing I noticed about Big V is that he's insanely fast compared to Dante. From pulling himself to platforms to lifting himself to enemies, He's there in an instant, the enemy has no chance. Also he's a lot more meticulous to master, Dante has a few moves which guarantees a launch on heavy enemies so long as the attack is fully charged, Vergil on the other hand has a 'middle ground' move which can only be activated with precise timing. Miss the timing = No launch.
And yes the removal of Colour-coded enemies is a breath of fresh air, Weapon in hand, Enemy in face = Attack. No 'use this for that' bullsh!t.
When He really shines though is when He has a protective circle of Summoned swords around him, it interrupts and traps nearly every enemy around him, especially useful for multiple Rage encounters.
I could feel the second I stepped into his shoes, Big V in the right hands can be devastating. I can almost guarantee He would eat Dante's campaign alive.
But fighting Blood Rages with Vergil would be infuriating. **** Divorce! lol
