Dante now possesses the Grim Reaper's scythe and so harbors the power that it holds. As soon as you get this instrument of death, demons start to pop-up left, right and centre, as it seems that you might have pissed the devil off a tad by defeating his angel of death. To defeat these demons you must violently bash the face buttons to do quick attacks, strong attacks and combos. Due to this button bashing frenzy, you slowly rack up combos with ease and reap the souls of the damned quicker and quicker. These souls can be collected and used later on as currency to purchase new combos of either the holy or unholy sort.
