They should have just not taken DMC and run it into a train.
Had they just called the game Limbo, kept the "brothers" aspect but made them not Dante and Vergil, gotten rid of the moronic plot for something better, the game would have been an easy 8.
Right now? With it being an atrocious DMC title? 6.
Jeez. I love how people call this game "atrocious" and "moronic". Have any of you played half of the games that get released these days? Bayonetta? God of War? Call of Duties? Far Cry 3? Previous DMC games? DmC is on par with those games (and in some cases, better) in regards to gameplay, story, and metagame.
DmC is a fairly compitent game, has a very grand and spectacular feel, and combat is elegant (yes, i am a long term of the devil may cry series).
Is it perfect? NO Is it bad? NO Is it fun? to me: YES Worth a buy? YES
I'm encouraged to write a review and tape a video review of the game. It deserves much more respect than it recieves.
I have also played all the previous DMC and I really have to agree with this post. DmC may not be perfect, but it's not as bad as what a lot of fans makes it to be. I can agree with most people that the difficulty is too easy and that the style meter should decrease over time or if the same moves are used. Beside that I find the game quite enjoyable, the control is awkward in the beginning but you get used to it. The game also have a interesting story and a good character interaction.
