I've been hating on it for how it butchered DMC and such..but I borrowed a copy from a friend last week and it's been a pretty fun ride. Yes the gameplay isn't nearly as deep as before. Yes the story (and characters) are horrible. Yes the game is easy as sin. Yes the art-design is a bit basic/predictable at times (especially the colors)
But it is quite enjoyable. I'm toying around on DMD and it's so easy to just stay in the air and just juggle them into infinity; something that was simply beyond my muscle memory in DMC4.
To put into perspective I did S-rank the whole of DMC3 on DMD, and beat the remaining games on DMD (including 2). While those games are vastly superior I am enjoying this immensely. Maybe it's because it's so easy and I can just lay back and toy around a bit. I don't know.
Since this game borrows heavily gameplay-wise from the previous series, it just goes to show how strong the old gameplay foundations were. Even if you do your absolute worst, using some of DMC 3 and 4's mechanics will net you a decent combat system.
Now, if we got to actually see how the gameplay would evolve from 4, that would probably be a different story.
I admit, I like Twilight, but for different reasons than you know.
You see, as a GM I tend to be in need for antagonists and villains. That book is chock-full of petty, self-centered, annoying and overall terrible characters you all want to see dead in a multitude of horrible ways.
I love it when my work is done for me.
