I'm a bit late but I finally tried it out. Whoever did the writing for this game should be shot directly in the face. Dante's personal appearance aside, it's just not clever. It's not like old DMC games where he'd be all Joe Casual. He literally gets into a "FUCK YOU!" shouting match with the boss in the demo. Like seriously. Combat, it seems like there's a lot to it but it seemed so easy. I played it on Normal difficulty, just for a good baseline, and it was just really easy. Like Normal on DMC3 will still kick your ass unless you're quite good. Here, I just found myself mashing buttons and stuff happened. Like there's about a bagillion combos but button mashing just seems to work. First level wasn't offensively bad outside of it all the aesthetic bullshit. It was the boss demo that got me. Just this horrific dubstep sounding crap, really unimaginative boss, and it was insultingly easy. Literally I would just jump whenever she attacked (which took forever by the way) and I'd dodge easily. It just took long and that's about it. So yeah, hopes for this game are not much higher.
