I have loved action games for a long time, and while I have always respected the DMC series as being one the genre's greats, I just have never really gotten into them. Full disclosure---I have never fully completed any DMC game. I have played a little here and there of most of them over the years, and just never really got hooked. I think I am just too attached to the Ninja Gaiden approach and "feel" of combat and I just have never been interested in DMC's combat philosophy of being about style and how many crazy combos can I do/how many times can I hit this enemy, etc.... Perhaps I am being unfair but this has always been my impression.
But, I am really wondering if I need to give DMC5 a fair shake and give it a shot. The game certainly looks amazing.
Any advice for a serious Ninja Gaiden fan considering testing the DMC waters again? For other primarily NG players, is DMC5 satisfying and something you'd recommend?
