A very strong first post! Really impressed with this review - it covers all the bases, reads well, and has a sense of humour.

Minor complaints:

So what the hell happened to DMC 2? Why was series creator Hideki Kamiya not asked to helm the sequel? Why was the combat dumbed down? What happened to the story? What the hell was the story about? Who knows? You could skip DMC 2 and you won’t be missing much.
I would possibly leave that out, or just package it in a more general paragraph about the weakness of the game. It's valid criticism but just seems a bit late in the day to be asking these questions.

Otherwise, very good review.
