Angry Joe said it best in his review. DMC is a good beat them up game but it ruins what fans loved about the character which ultimately is why so many fans hate the game. If they had kept Dantes look and a similar attitude, this new DMC would have been a hit. Whether the combat is diluted or not would have been overlooked.

Much hate out there for whiny Emo Punks, as the new Dante is often mocked as.

^No.

They fucked up the entire universe of the series in order to grab a new audience, same with the combat system. DmC is an action game for people who aren't into more fast-paced action games or don't seem to understand and enjoy the more technical aspects of that specific genre.

The only reason why this game is called 'Devil May Cry' is to attract people to buy the game like the new Tomb Raider did, but really DmC should have been a brand new IP. Everyone loves to reboot everything these days though.

Also while I enjoy the reviews that Angry Joe does I always takes his opinion with a grain of salt.

They attempted to actually try something new as opposed to spitting out another relatively uninspired sequel that was completely underwhelming compared to DmC3. I'm plenty into the past DmC games (1 and 3 are some of the only PS2 games I still own), but by your estimation, I'm not into/don't understand/enjoy the technical aspects of that genre because I thought DmC was fantastic? I don't think so.

It's called Devil May Cry because it is the new Devil May Cry and the new Dante is Dante, much like how the new Tomb Raider is Tomb Raider and the ending to Mass Effect 3, regardless of what I or anyone else thinks, is the ending of Mass Effect 3. No amount of people bellyaching about how "the old stuff was better" or "they sold out to grab a new audience" will change that. Just ask Phantasy Star and Shining Force fans.

Opinions and points of view vary greatly from this game and what I've seen a lot is people that were never into action games (or Devil May Cry before) loving DmC.

I've played them all and this game is awesome. With that said, Vergil's Downfall is so mediocre. Not worth 9 bucks at all. Hated the comic book style storytelling. It felt cheap compared to the main game and Vergil controls like ass for the first couple of missions till you unlock his better stuff. Not recommended from me at all.

Fishing this thread out of obscurity because I finally got around to playing it (What can I say, it was cheap and I forgot about me Capcom boycott because they haven't done anything to piss me off in a while) and I don't think theres any reason to make a new topic.
Seeing as I wasn't blown away with the direction Ninja Theory took during development, I have to give credit where credit id due, its a fun game. The fighting is fast and fluid like you would come to expect from a DMC game. You unlock just enough goodies early on to give you plenty of variety from pretty much the beginning of the game. Pacing is pretty good, and though you get quite a bit to work with after the first few missions the game still has a thing or two up its sleeve to keep the feeling of character progression alive. Cant say how well this holds up for the rest of the game, or how long the game is since I'm not entirely certain how far from the end I am. The odd part is that I'm actually enjoying the story as well, and even like the new Dante. Its got some of the crazy/badass/over the top moments elements, but its a little more coherent and the characters are a little more "believable". I wouldn't say this is better or worse than the original, just different though still keeping some key character traits in common.
Overall, so far I'm pleasantly surprised.

I wouldn't mind replaying through Devil May Cry 4 with trophies this time. I really liked that game. I still have my collector's edition tin for PS3. As for DmC, as much as I loved it more than most, I can't say I will buy it again.
