For those who have played the first game (Castlevania: Lords of Shadows) The only main difference in battle is the dodge system, light and dark magic being changed to the void sword and chaos claw (healing and damage) and lastly the removal of the grapple system, meaning you can only grapple enemies that are glowing now.
