DmC2 can go nowhere but up. Besides, it does nothing to tarnish DMC's story or gameplay. They may as well be cousin series.
DmC2 has nowhere to go at all. They can't keep satire. They can't keep edgy personality ( if they ever hope to show character growing...). And it's not a fact it'll go up. That what you believed BEFORE DmC...and look where it went....also *cough*DMC2*cough*
DMC2 was a rushed game that wasn't given the proper time or polishing. DmC2 would probably have both, and, given the experienced gained from this game, Ninja Theory would be able to build a better game.

NT made 3 other games before this one. None of them are anything special. Thinking that a possible sequel will be magically better is making an assumption that has never panned out for NT. Things can always get worse.
Frank Zappa is God. Fact. King of Heroes, do you have enough swords?!
