I enjoyed it and I usually don't like Hack n' Slash games. It's pretty easy though... I haven't played the previous DMC games but believe they're supposed to be much harder, just finished this on Hell and Hell difficulty and only died a few times.
If they do a squeal I hope they improve the auto-targeting system, on easy difficulties (Nephilim / Son Of Sparda) I didn't notice any problems but on DMD / HaH I often found it targeting the wrong enemy. While in the air aiming directly at the closest enemy you would think it should target that enemy... not one furthest away, on the ground, behind you.
