Except the story doesn't make sense at all as a prequel
The story in an ironic, "style-fighter" doesn't make sense? Hold on...
*walks outside to grab some oxygen and feel the wind in his hair*
Plot-holes don't necessarily ruin a story. And especially not if it's a work of satire, a comedy playing for laughs.
Can an inconsistency wound a film like Inception? Yes. Austin Powers? Probably not.

You don't JUST change everything about something and then call it the same thing
and are you seriously comparing DMC with Austin Powers?
First off, not EVERYTHING was changed. You still have a snarky, anime-esque protagonist wailing on demons with various types of swords and guns.
Secondly, DMC games are ironic, often parodical games that mock yet embrace the tropes that inhabit anime and the culture that surrounds it.
The Austin Powers films are ironic, certainly parodical movies that mock yet embrace the tropes and patterns seen in "Spy" films such as 007.
So yes, the comparison is valid.
WHAT IS THIS!?
Yea not EVERYTHING was changed
Just a few plot points like the whole him being an Angel/Demon thing Oh yeah and he doesn't know his mother
Those 2 things certainly aren't relevent in the other Devil May cry games
If the writers care that much about consistency in the series, then it's only a matter of time before they play the "selective amnesia" card. Worked for Wolverine in X-Men and Cloud in FFVII... (Although I supposed his memories were spliced with another.)
WHAT IS THIS!?
Why are people ignoring the elephant in the room? You know, the fact that Mundus was the main villain of DMC1 and had never met Dante and was originally beaten by Sparda? It's a reboot.
Fresh to death
Never played any DMC game.... are they any good? Which one has the best story? Or which one should I start with first?
Just buy Devil may cry hd collection which comes with the first 3 games....Couldnt tell you which one has the best story by todays standards...I would look up review on youtube or ask around..
