This game recieves a bit of hate because of the reboot of the DmC Series. Being my first DmC game, I wasn't sure what to expect. I can safely say that is a good game. Graphically, it is good and runs quite smoothly. The style and great was and the stages are nicely done. The voice acting is fair and the music helps put you in the mood to slash things. But what's really the fun part is the ability to chain endless combo's if you have the skills to. The twist is that a rating is given to you based on how stylish you fought at the end of each battle. This motivates you to add different moves in order to achieve a higher rating and prevents the game from just being a button mashing feast. Dante (the protagonist) has guns and melee weapons at his disposal. New weapons will come along as you progress through the story, while slightly differing from the previous ones, they still serve the same purpose. The game is divided into fighting and platforming which isn't bad at all.
Many old school fans hate on the series because it is "easier" and think the knew Dante suck. New to the series, I think he's just fine. As for the "easier" gameplay, it is just simply for accessible for new people to get into. You can unlock more difficulties after beating the game if you want more of a challenge.
In the end, this is a good game that brings some fast paced action that is fun and easy to learn. I recommend you pick it up if you're in the mood for some hack n slash that has a good setting/style to it.
