OXM UK- DmC Hands-On: Offering An Olive Branch To The Ninja Theory "Haters"

OXM UK- After playing for eight hours on Nephilim difficulty - around half the campaign plus an hour or two in the optional challenge rooms - I'm finding it difficult to dislike the new Devil May Cry, but I'll concede that if you're a practised player, there are legitimate grounds for annoyance.

DmC is every inch a reboot, dispensing with some of the knottier aspects of the series in order to capture the attention of those who don't know how to string a Stinger, High Roller and Aerial Rave together. That doesn't make it "simplistic", however - Ninja Theory has cherry-picked features from around the Devil May Cry timeline and introduced a few of their own, resulting in a game that, while not as intricate as Devil May Cry 3, soundly trumps the likes of Castlevania: Lord of Shadows or God of War for complexity. (DmC: Devil May Cry, Xbox 360)

Don't understand the fuss, myself. Game looks good. Old DMCs are also good, maybe better. Result: lots of good games of varying degrees of goodness. Losers? None.

I'm honestly conflicted. New DMC doesn't look bad, but if I buy it does that mean we'll never see DMC5? Or is it if I don't buy it Capcom will kill the franchise.

I wish Capcom would have spun this off into it's own franchise, and made a proper sequel to DMC4. Or at least ended the series properly before rebooting it.
