Sales-wise, it was a huge return to form for the franchise. Capcom only expects DmC to sell 2 million, and time will tell how accurate that estimate was.
And unless Dragon's Dogma had some amazing resurgence six months after it came out, it only sold half as much as DMC 4 despite having far more time and resources pumped into it.
Finally, DMC 4's MetaCritic average is two points lower than DmC despite being lucky enough that Rev3's 3/5 review is still not on there. If it got mixed reviews, then so did DmC.
