A product that is created to broaden an audience is not automatically a sell-out. It can still be a work with creativity and heart. DmC does have these things, as much as some of you would hate to admit it.
The only real portion of this game that you could say was modified for the sake of sales was the combat. It was downgraded to make it more accessible to fans, but the ideas behind the combat, even if it is easier, are still there. It's not as though the entire gameplay of the franchise was turned into a shooter.
Everything else about the game creatively, from the characters, the art, and music, is pretty distinct and cohesive in regards to the game's vision. Even if it's a reboot with themes previously explored in other media, it's still its own entity with its own style.
