It would have been much better if it was simply a new IP.
Or if they had clearly stated, that it was an alternate Universe and outside the canon (like RE Operation Racoon city), and that they still planned on making another proper DMC game.
new dante is terrible, he cuses, and flips people off way to much to be called dante now i see why hes named D.I.N.O.
It's not like Dante's the first person to flip the bird in Devil May Cry, I mean Nero did that too. Also... didn't "classic" Dante swear alot in the anime as well? It is canon so...
Yes he did, and I don't see why people have so much trouble in accepting a more realistic Dante =/ doesn't matter, the guy is gonna make a name for itself soon enough.
This game is definitely not Devil May Cry to me. All the characters and dynamics aren't just different, they are WRONG (Vergil is a good guy? **bleep**?) The controls are Heavenly Sword controls, which are okay but make the game totally different from Devil May Cry and a lot of really cool moves and things from the previous games are notably absent. Also, what the hell is the point of having two evade buttons? And devil trigger is totally stupid. Even the dialogue is awful and uninspired, and DMC dialogue has rarely ever been great in the first place so that's certainly an issue.
Nevertheless It's a really fun game. I really want to like it, but I feel like I could like it more if it were not masquerading as Devil May Cry.
