Why does everyone hate this game?

These days it's really hard to tell what games are worth your time and money. Obviously no one wants to spend $60 on a mediocre game, so people are very judgmental.

I love the DMC series. 3 was my favorite, I really enjoyed 4 and of course 1 is a classic. I was really looking forward to this game and I also see that it got a lot of positive reviews. But strangely enough there's so much fan backlash that I'm skeptical about gambling with the game, especially with the new Metal Gear around the corner.

Can you guys explain what's good and bad about this game? The boss fights being universally panned definitely has me concerned.
Peace....loving....and Understanding

Eventually, someone will make a .pdf for this category of topic, yes?

Seriously, there's even a topic on the first page asking the same thing RIGHT NOW.

Copy pasted by an identical thread made today.

-Unwanted, unneeded reboot
-Terrible, terrible PR
-Too different stylistically
-Inferior combat compared to DMC3-4 in a series which has always been known for its cream of the crop combat
-Doesn't really fix any of the "weak points" of the old series
-Game even on its own has legitimate problems

In short we have been shortchanged without a reason, while told that this was mega-awesome and would have been much better than the old serie

Because it's a mediocre action game and an awful DMC.

Because MGR is better and you should go purchase that instead
