Yes, on the reveal of the game I was very disappointed. And yes I was disappointed with look of main character, but ultimately decided to give it a shot anyway, and was disappointed too. Thought I was not one of those raging thugs.
I like original series so much more. Combat was more fun, and in terms of the story it was stupid, but also cheese, and new one was only stupid. DMC 4 was the most stupid of them all, well next to 2nd one, but still had way more fun then in the new one. My favorite of all of the is the 1st one: the setting was cool and I just love exploration and puzzles in action games.
