I was really looking forward to trying out DMC, however I'm very disappointed.
I don't give a shit what Dante looks like. But that's not Dante. No charisma, not funny, not witty. Just vulgar and annoying.
And Vergil's only line in the demo makes him sound like a bitch.

Sadness fills my heart :'(

DMC was really fun and it definitely felt like a DMC game. Still think it will be hard to top DMC3, but so far all doubts about the new Dante are gone. He's funny, more mature, and still kicks a lot of ass. The boss fight in the demo has a potty mouth lol

Now I'm really curious to see some crazy combo videos with the new moves he has available.

DmC looks great, the combat system seem to have a lot of potential but it will probably take some time to get used to it. Dante sure has a lot of tools at his disposal. Can't wait to try the full game.

DMC demo is amazing. Ninja Theory knocked it out of the park with regards to visuals and gameplay. As long as the story is solid, it should end up being one of the best DMC games in the franchise. I loved the new Angel and Demon, LT RT control scheme, giving you 3 different weapons that you can mix and match at any giving time with a simple press of a button. I always wanted to try the other weapons in the other DMC games, but never wanted to lose the awesome Rebellion and the Stinger combo, etc. Now its a non-issue. Can't wait for this release.

Christ, this new Dante is like it was written by a 12 year old RPer. "Donte. LIKES: Swearing, guns HATES: Demons, ppl telling him wat to do, pizza". About as likeable as a cum stain on a kids bed sheet.

Tried the demo now. It's allright. I miss the Lock-On and i would like to just hold x to shoot but it's bareable. Germansynchro feels like a letdown as allways but english might be better.

To sum up, seems like a solid game but wouldn't call it DmC

The demo was alright. it was certainly different and didn't have that Devil May Cry charm to it but it seems like a decent action game at least.

That DmC demo is pretty freakin stylish. I'm digging it.

Probably won't be getting the game though.
