Well the only good thing about this game is the gameplay and even then it is a watered down version of Devil May Cry 4. We are in a day and age where we really cannot get away with having a good action game without having interesting characters and a decent story; this is where this game falls completely flat.
Let's look at Dante, the former Merc with the Mouth now turned into "F YOU" Man is going around stopping a huge corrupt government run by demons. Old Dante was cocky and confident but was also likeable; however this Dante feels like he is trying way too hard to be hardcore. He's is like that guy who says he is super cool but in fact is just really annoying and you want him to shut his mouth. However despite how bad Dante is there is someone they messed up even worse.
Vergil: How in the heck could Ninja Theory take a man of honor and power and would not harm anyone unless he was provoked first into a piece of garbage that would shoot someone who is pregnant and smile about it? He also likes to flaunt his superiority over humans like it is some sort of pissing contest. Old Vergil knew he was better and had nothing to prove, he just wanted more power.
The story itself is goes on and off from decent to outright terrible. The dialogue is boring and it feels like they tried to make Dante too "hardcore". It reminds me of Shadow The Hedgehog for the Xbox/PS2/Gamecube where Shadow cursed every 5 seconds.
Ninja Theory has proven time and again that they are inept in handling any game franchise. They should pack it in.
