Dark and gothic isn't just about gore, it's about the visual design
I agree D4 seems to be going in a much better direction compared to D3, the character and environment design are so far better, but the attack and spell animations are still cartoony and over the top
Just seeing that Barb whip out a magical 20 foot whip that hits the entire screen in a 360 pattern is lame af, more anime stuff like D3's WOTB, Hammer of the Ancients, etc
I agree with that it's a fair take, the whip felt very God of War kratos esq, and like the ultimate for berserkers in Lost Ark. Seems like they are trying to borrow a lot of ideas from other games. I am no D4 shill, but I think everyone takes their hate and anger from D3 and automatically applys it to D4. Very hyperbolic conclusions are made.
Which I get it and I am skeptical and I have accepted it will have some trash elements from D3, but as long as the good out weighs the bad I'm fine with it. However, I do think the look of abilities look way better and more grounded than D3.
