In DMC4, you fight Berial 3 times, Echidna 3 times, The frog boss 3 times, and Agnus 3 times. You fight Sanctus 2 times, and Credo once. You fight the Savior once with Dante.
In DMC1, you fight Phantom twice, and you have 2 chase scenes with him. You fight Griffon 3 times, and Nelo Angelo 3 times. You fight Phantom 3 times. Mundus has three phases, sky battle, lava battle, and the last stand at the end.
....so why did everyone complain the repeated bosses in 4, when 1 had them too?

Yes, and they are both great games. What's your point? --- You will not forget this devils power!

I don't think it was just that. I think people mostly complained about going through that game backwards ontop of recycling the bosses. --- PSN: ANTRONIX
Because people think the recycled bosses in DMC4 is a flaw, even though 1 had them too.

Yeah but the bosses all behave differently in DMC.
They're literally the same battles in DMC4..although you do re-fight some has a different character the 2nd time. Which is something.
I still loved the bosses in 4 though. So damn fun. --- http://billysan291.deviantart.com/ PSN: Billysan291 360 Live: Billy Saltzman

Because you don't fight them through the levels in nearly exact reverse order and the boss in the exact reverse order. Other action games at least have the decency to mix them up. DMC4 executed its recycled thing very very poorly.

He never said they weren't great games. He challenges an assertion people reserve strictly for DMC4, but could technically be applied to DMC1. --- Currently Playing: Far Cry 3, Darksiders 2, and Vanquish. Anticipating: MGR:R, Bioshock Infinite, Pokemon X and KHHD.

In DMC1 the bosses actually evolved a little bit each time you fought them. --- http://i.imgur.com/QB2km.png

Because even if you fight the same bosses several times in dmc1 the fights are often diffrent enough. Fighting griffon on the ship where he pins the laser bird on you is different then fighting him on land, or in the coliseum where after he loses his wing he starts barraging you with the beam paterns.
The fights have different areas and moves. In DMC4 you fight them but they are the same. Belial holds no new suprises the 2 and 3rd time you fight him, heck even the arena is the same.
