If you're looking for a GOW-type slash/smash/shoot type game, you could do worse. Great game. A little short on the story, but tons of replay value with different playthroughs unlocked after the first run-through. All the haters are just that. Def worth a rent.
I played DMC: 4 before this one and i must say that this game takes the story to new heights!.
First off the gameplay is sick, the combos look amazing, the way you're able to chain and create moves on the fly by switching weapons, was well thought off.
Graphics look and make you feel like you're in Limbo.
Story definitely grabs your attention from start to finish.
Definitely looking forward to more DMC games!
