Stopped reading at "you fans were in lala land because to you thought dmc4 was just perfect" Nope, I didn't and I don't know many that do. It was good, definitley could've been better but it brought up a lot of questions. It sold 2.7 million copies, which according to this chart is more than any DMC had sold before.
DMC 4 was a trash game. I played the heck out of DMC 3, I knew how the mechanics of the game worked, and I beat the game on DMD mode. That being said, I'm shocked the OP's friend who played the whole series never heard of jump canceling. I'm guessing your friend just beat the games on normal mode, because you need to know the mechanics very well at the toughest difficulties.
DMC 4 left me soooo disappointed though --- Death is never the answer. Life is. - Galioth
Over Koei's dead body lol, until that happens Hack n Slash is going to be just fine
not everything has to be a popular as COD -_-
Umm yeah if your referring to DW, and SW they don't apply, they are beat'em ups. --- To the people who want to see a sequel to Dark Cloud 2, Dark Cloud 3. Join the official FB page and lets try to send some petitions!!
When it shows DMC 3, is it including the Special Edition? How do the sales of the fifth anniversary boxset figure in?
Nope. Something else to note is that charts from 2008. I did some further research and found stats from 2012. DMC1- 2.99 Million DMC2- 1.97 Million DMC3- 2.09 Million DMC3 SE- 2.21 Million DMC4(Both Platforms)- 3.42 Million DMC HD- 550,000
Remember these are all worldwide. No stats on the fifth anniversary boxset though. In total the series has sold 12.54 Million games. I'm sort of confused about DMC4 though because that's a pretty big boost from the 2.7 million Capcom complained about when they just announced the reboot. --- 2012's Undisputed Badass: Scizor
