DMC is awesome. however its a little on short and easy side (insert yo mama joke here). im on the 2nd to last level and only 13 hrs into it on Devil Hunter mode (hardest difficulty). i cant really say anything about LO because i havent played it but i do know that they screwed over americans in terms on packaging (3 discs on top of eachother and the 4th one in a paper sleave). it does sound like an awesome game if you like the classic FF battle style. however kotaku reported that it takes about 12 seconds to load a battle.
