Nope. MGR's combat is leap and bounds above anything DmC possess. Also MGR doesn't attempt to restrict you by having color coded enemies or forcing you to hold a button to use a weapon. Finally MGR doesn't have nasty glitches.
Ehm... I liked both games. If you dont like DmC, thats fine by me, its your opinion, and i have nothing against it. Besides, i think the new Dante is cool, well, not as cool as the old Dante, but still pretty cool for me. I just made that dialogue for fun.
