Uh..NO, the ladies were awesome & I loved playing their levels.
And so were the weapon & tweaks to mechanics...I mean he actually did some work & made the game less cheap by removing things like incendiary shuriken & such.
I just can't see how someone can regard those as utter crap.
Hmmm ... you see the only reason they were good was because it was NG ... errr how do i put it The female characters just did not compare to Ryu... i mean in DMC3 vergil is an OSAMM character his moves/gameplay were good and you could compare him to dante i enjoyed playing both Dante and Vergil ... but in NG the female characters were like nerfed versions of Ryu they were not as much fun to play as Ryu....
It like this .. If itagaki made a new character it would have been uber awesome ... but this hayashi guy seems to just use the engine and change some stuff(basically not making characters to their full potential)....balance is obviously better cause he had the time
NGS2 was somewhat ok ... but NGS1 Rachel was utter crap no excuses her animations/Gameplay were boring as f**k...
Here are my complains with them
Momiji - Ranged weapon but it just doesnt have the moveset you would get from a spear type weapon like that ... moveset is pretty basic and not too unique look at stuff like the Kusari-gama thats an awesome weapon
Rachel - NGS1 version is horrible...NGS2 she is much better but overall too slow for the game and in harder difficulties her gameplay just revolves around you getting that one big damaging combo on your enemy
Ayane - pretty good ... but still inferior to Ryu...if she had more weapons she might have been better....
