Tried the demo on Xbox. It’s the Nero demo they had at the conventions. It’s a bit boring with only a few fights against basic enemies that die quickly, plus a boss fight that’s a little more interesting. They disabled the ability to jump off enemies so there’s no fancy jump cancelling to explore.
It’s very similar mechanically to DMC4 in terms of the inputs and what I’m doing. I started getting into it after a few runs through the 10 minute demo. I decided to quit there and experience the game fresh.
The framerate drops occasionally on a standard Xbox One. Apparently there will be a PS4 demo soon, but no PC demos, probably to prevent data mining.
