Well with the popularity of games like GoW and Dante's, you can't be too surprised that this one went in this direction.
I guess you're more of a hardcore fan, which is respectable, I'm mean you've been faithful to the franchise, but the devs obviously wanted to try a new direction, even the look is totally new. Hoping to bring in some new players, that otherwise wouldn't even consider the title.
Yeah I know but if they wanted to do that they could have simply create a new IP, part of the reason that I'm mad is that DMC4 left so many things open that I was eager to see what would come out of them :/
Its ok, not great, not horrible but ok. & just when i was almost use to the idea of the emo Twilight copycat DINO(Dante In Name Only) I had to see the cut scene with one of the best bad ass's of all time aka Vergil,......thats where i said wtf? That and the first DT which was a combination on L3+R3 and suddenly my screen gave me a flashback of a horrible game called WET that i traded in,yea i stopped there. This game may do all right for new comers, but simply put Its NOT DMC, of all DMCs ive played,this was like a better looking version of DMC2. They said you wouldnt notice the difference of 30fps compared to 60fps because of the settings/background.....? WRONG one of the first things i noticed,a pretty sky doesnt improve deep combat(DMC 1,3,4) if youve never played DMC3 on turbo,check it out, just someones opinion who has all 3 Platinums on 1-3 and 860/1,000 on DMC4 on the 360.
I was always under the impression that the DMC games were hack and slash but after reading what I have just read I'm not to sure what to expect from the HD collection now now. I'll definately play it anyways since I've bought it but I just thought it would be like GoW or Dante's Inferno. I'll try the demo aswell if I get chance, after the trailers I've seen for the new DMC, it does look pretty damn awesome.

I really liked the demo. it's different, no doubt, but I think it's really good and interesting. I really liked how the dodge buttom, if pressed at the right moment worked like a block buttom, like in royal guard mode. but otherwise, thats a thing I'll miss... I loved the modes in DMC3, they offered depth to the combat.
I see a lot of people hating on this game, and I cant say they dont have reasons to.. but for me, I'll give this one a chance because I just liked the demo sooo much.
So the demo is... Ok in my opinion. It's not that bad nor good either. Kinda average. The controls are something I HAVE to get use to. I felt that the old controls was quite better even if some moves require a combination of 3 different buttons plus the analog stick. For activating the DT, ugh why does it have to be a 2 button combination The auto lock-on also one of the things I need to get use to. It felt different that I wasn't holding the button to lock on targets while stringing some moves (old DMC gameplay). For the combat, not sure if it is just me but the framerate is kinda low? There's a tiny little lag I experienced while stringing moves. I don't like the new dodge button but oh well that's something I also need to get used to I am still looking forward to playing it and I am still buying it though and nothing/nobody can change my mind.
Currently Playing: I dunno what to play anymore.. Too many JRPG
I know one thing, I really enjoyed the game. Pulled off some sick combos. Had to play the game on the Nephilim setting to have a decent challenge. I been had this reserved earlier this year and have not regret doing so. But you can't please everyone and I'm quite sure there will be plenty of complaining. Oh well, I'm good
So...many...games...so...many......very...little...time. Ah the life of a gamer
