well i would have liked it just the same if i just would've bought it. The chances are that i would've dismissed it as just another hack n slash like i did with games like heavenly sword and that dark-something- series i just can't remember at the moment lol.
Devil May Cry: Apocrypha --Devil May Cry reboot prequel choose your own adventure with RPG elements. Or something-- Join the fight on a DmC-board near you!
It's just another terrible actions game, whether you do or don't pay attention to its name.
People would have liked it more that way than they do now, but only in comparison. Admit it, "Another crappy NT game that no one played" sounds better than "Awful, NT-level action game that tries to pass as DMC".
