Compare & Contrast: Devil May Cry 3 vs DmC

I’m working on a longer post for Friday with my gripes laid out but I just did a playthrough of Devil May Cry 3 and followed it up with DmC and I definitely have two posts of kvetching in me.

Devil May Cry 3 DmC
Dante is a smartass cocky dude who is funny. He likes pizza and guitars. Dante is a smartass cocky dude who is not funny. It is implied he has a big dick.
Vergil is a broody not-human with plans who is very good with a sword. He wears a cool jacket. Vergil is a whiny not-human with plans who is not as good with a sword as Dante. He wears a dumb jacket.
Many options available to customize how you play through the game. Many different weapons and combat styles to choose from. Even a defense only first option if you are a weirdo who doesn’t just like to smash enemies blindly with a sword. Dante has a sword and then there are some secondary weapons you have to hold down multiple buttons to use. You’ll hit the wrong ones sometimes and get annoyed.
Tight re-playable levels for those who like to go for better rankings. You will not need to replay any levels unless you really enjoy collectibles or SSS rankings because if your hands can push buttons you will probably S/SS rank everything in normal difficulty without breaking a sweat.
