I bought PS3 copy maybe 2yrs after release, beat PS4 version recently.
its a decent game overall, bosses r crap set pieces with barely any interactivity n forced cutscenes to detract from gameplay. A distinct lack of back n forth for bosses since they have phases for simply wailing on them as they r helpless, u should have to earn stun periods. Vergin is ok but I'd rather fight Vergil, Nelo Angelo or credo for rival fights.
They added some extra modes n costumes for rerelease, like hardcore mode, turbo mode n must style mode which only a allows mobs to take damage if style meter is at an S or higher.
I like how u can combo weapons into others so u don't have to start from the beginning of another weapons combo string e.i rebellion into arbiter.
It needed to be its own thing as no way dmc can be anything other than dmc, can't replace mah boii Dante.
Stupid name too, I think they called it devil may cry for the subtitle to act as an indication of a sequel or to make it not simply dmc.
