Confirm. Other then a slightly better story which isn't important in DMC games. DMC4 is the superior game in the long run. More replay value , deeper combat , more skills. Its just a better game as a whole in the long run.
DMC1 is great but it just aged poorly. --- The big H . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfxsN423EVs
ShadowZero007 is a user I agree with on all points...so I have to chalk that up as my answer.
The superior gameplay goes to DMC4. But DMC1 just reeled me in, in more ways than one with the story and that whole goth scenic tone that the atmosphere gave off. Unbelievably exceptional for it's time indeed. --- "Check & Mate, Buddy." PSN: LatinChris_9990 / state you're a Gf's user before sending requests.
Why compare a game that came out in 2001 to a game that came out in 2008? More than enough time to refine the engine and gameplay. DMC3 is a far more fair comparison. --- Most biased gaming article: http://www.gametrailers.com/side-mission/33395/league-of-legends- crowns-itself-most-played-video-game-in-the-world
