Starting off, I am not a big DMC buff. I've played DMC4 and I enjoyed that, mashing buttons trying to string sweet combos together was fun but that's all the series is to me.
This is pretty much the same thing to me, mashing those buttons in the best possible sequence while feeling immensly poweful. The combat is really fluent and the animations are spot on. I've heard complaints about the combat mechanics not being very deep, I wouldn't know anything about that though as it's deep enough for me, and from what I expected coming into the game only having played DMC4 before.
The graphics are excellent and i have nothing to complain about in that department. The levels are all pretty varied and there's enough variety among the enemies to keep the game from feeling repetetive. The soundtrack however does not suit me at all, I loathe the dubstep crap and the electrified metal ♥♥♥♥ that they blast in my ears trying to get me pumped for combat.
The story and the protagonist are also weak points in the game for me. Neither are compelling at all and it feels like they've been written by forty year old japanese men trying to tune in to what's hip among the kids these days. Everything from the haircut to the punchlines and the music is very corny. The cinematic bits in the game are very well crafted though and i could bare to watch them even though the story never really managed to lure me in.
All in all it's a robust spectacle fighter , it doesn't bring anything new to the genre and it's horrible at all, it's was an average experience. I would still recommend the game if you can get in on a sale for around $10.
