Seriously just boot it up, perform a stinger, stare in disbelief, perform a stinger again to confirm, leave...
The enemy AI, weapon selection, animation pacing (like how fast you move in combat), story, combat, and boss design are all worst in series IMO. The combo system is even jacked in DMC2, it's wholly and objectively worse any game in the series including this one--even if you have some crazed vendetta against this game.
Let me add, I've bought every single DMC game on day one and beaten all of them except DMC2 and DmC on DMD mode. DmC I haven't beaten DMD because I haven't had time yet, DMC2 I haven't beaten DMD because the gameplay is awful and not enjoyable to play (as opposed to every other game in series)
