I completely agree with you, the intro should be an easy fix through a patch.
Regarding the Guy Savage and Snake vs Monkey mini-games; I never actually played Snake vs Monkey, and from what I've seen, it's not my thing. Guy Savage was a fun thing at first, but after a while it lost its fun to me.
I care about the main game itself, the story. But I'm very grateful for your help :).
Would you have some insight about DMC3?
I think every game should have full voice acting and plenty of cutscenes. I can't see any other ways to properly tell a story.
