This isn't all that different from the fan outcry over RE6. RE6 was a big name Capcom game and got generally lousy reviews. What makes you guys think that somehow a second tier series like Devil May Cry warrants some kind of "cover-up" when Resident Evil, spawn of film franchises and handheld games galore, didn't.
You're being irrational. This game will score roughly what it deserves based on mechanics and the experience of the average gamer. It may be a piece of crap, but if it's decent and people like it you guys will just have. To suck it up and move on. All this hate over a stupid game isn't healthy.

I am starting to wonder how this game such good reviews. It's hard to judge having not played through the game personally, but having had a look at all the spoilers and leaks it seems unjustified. Makes me wonder about the reviewers and whether they've played the original series to the end or just had a quick 10 minute play for comparison. The recent spoilers have left me feeling more vocal to say the least.
