I never said it's a bad game and nobody will argue with you about it being better than Dante's Inferno, make no mistake. But in comparison to earlier DMC games? It doesn't quite hold up.
Here's a perfect example of the kind of undeserved ott criticism the game has been getting from people who should know better. Reactive emotional responses which place far too much importance on things that barely matter in the great scheme of things.
The complaint about the easier SSS ranks is perfectly valid. But I hardly think the reviewers have been stating the diff modes were genuinely new, it clearly is a true DMC game (what were you expecting, DMC 3.5 after all these years?) which even has Kamiya praising for it's respect of the previous games, and is obvioulsy more than an "ok" action game. An example of an "ok" action game is Dante's Inferno, which DmC is several classes above in sheer quality.
You don't like it, no one is refuting that. But at least give fair criticism instead.
Kamiya said it was 'unique', which you could interpret as being quite non-commital about it either way. He's also said numerous times that he doesn't care about the series anymore and that fans should stop asking him about it.
Again, not begruding that it's a bad game, but compared to 3 or even 4, then, to me, it's not as satisfying to play nor does the reboot aspect of it do anything for me.
