I mean, the game was a backtrack fest, had you controlling a character other than Dante (that played differently from Dante) for half the game... and these are just the facts about it.
Regarding (my) opinions, I'd say its story was uninteresting at best, characters didn't develop through the story, soundtrack was generic modern metal that tried to emulate the amazing soundtrack of DMC3 and the level design was bad, except for a few areas, like the beginning. The only redeemable aspect of DMC4 is the gameplay, but even then, DMC3 had better gameplay as well. Why would you play DMC4 if you had DMC3 at your hand?
DMC4 left me with a bitter taste, specially since DMC3 was its predecessor.
Also, let's be honest, people that say DMC2 is better than DmC are just trolls, we can agree with that, right? I could also argue that DmC is better than DMC1 but I can't ignore it's historical importance to the genre and for being the first one in the franchise.
Aion is just like all other WoW clones, I mean, the Mage in Aion has a Fireball spell and can make Portals. WoW ANYONE??? - Aion Boards
Sure, it's obviously unfinished, but the battle system was really good and since after the first playthrough, it's all repetition anyway, the backtracking and same bosses don't really matter, as I would've fought them tons of times in Bloody Palace and just different difficulties anyway.
