The new DmC was made by Ninja Theory keeping the western audience in mind thus brutally killing the old anime style DMCs and the expectations of the long time loyal fans of the series. Though i wont say its a bad game especially if you are new to the series. But if you have played old DMCs this game is simply forgettable. What i like to call it as a nerfed down mek copy of DMC which is still enjoyable yet weak.
The graphics and gameplay are the USP of the game but i believe if DMC 3 is remade with great graphics (not just HD textures) that game will still oversell this one easily.
In a Nutshell good game worth playing but still nothing compared to a true DMC game.
