" @jakob187 said:To be fair the 2 games they release already have been seen as very middling by critics." Seriously, I thought it was rather callous of Ryan on the Bombcast to lambast those who are up-in-arms over this change. When people are attached to a character being who the character is, it's upsetting when that character is changed. It is very much like what happened with Wind Waker when the new look for Link in that was shown off. Mind you, that game turned out to be pretty damn excellent. That's the biggest thing I'm concerned about: the gameplay. Heavenly Sword was a very free-flow type of combat system, while Enslaved looks like it is a much stiffer and simplistic fighting system. When I hear "Devil May Cry", NEITHER of those are what I think of. Instead, I think "disciplined fighting system with flair that you have to learn to master". I never felt like there was anything to master with Heavenly Sword. Just mash some buttons and kick some ass. I don't know. It's a complete up-in-the-air thing right now, but I think people have every reason to offer their initial impressions about this reveal, positive OR negative. I think the character of Dante is worthwhile in his pre-existing form (and Capcom apparently thinks so too if they are willing to put him into Marvel vs. Capcom 3). I just don't understand this change, the need for a reboot like this, or anything. Devil May Cry 4 wasn't great by any stretch of the imagination, but fuck - it wasn't Devil May Cry 2 at least! "So basically, you're judging Ninja Theory based on two games that were completely different? "
Kung Fu Chaos got 50's and 60's
Heavenly sword got scores ranging from 5-10 indicating mixed reactions
and Heavenly Sword is like God of War like God of War is like Devil May Cry. So Heavenly Sword is similar to DmC.
However having played the Enslaved demo it makes me confident they could do a good job.
