I'm still not sure if remaking the franchise was entirely needed, but what a game!
Gameplay is a fantastic evolution of the DMC style yet still feels like a proper DMC game, ie amazing to play. NT really need to be given a break by the hardcore as they have delivered bigtime.
The Uncharted-style pacing with the setpieces work really well as well, and only not only do not spoil the core DMC combat but also serve to increase the overall excitement.
Some of the more stubborn fanboys of course will never be pleased regardless of the end result, but NT need to ignore them as on the basis of this demo they've not only made an incredible game but have come closer to the core tenets than most people thought.
For me this is now an insta-preorder.
