Summary: Dante gets a reboot. But is it still Devil May Cry?
Pros: Excellent combo chain system. Not as unforgiving as Devil May Cry 3. Dante carries everything with him, so no deciding what to take and leave behind before missions. Limbo has some crazy visuals.
Cons: Too much platforming; Devil Trigger is no longer fun to use
Conclusion: In a nutshell, I played Dmc once and I want to play it again. There are few games I can say that about nowadays.
Pros: Stuffed with cool weapons and foes to keep you going for hours the game feels fresh and a great improvement over previous installments, good for new-comers and fans alike, levels encourage exploration, great soundtrack and good voice acting, fabulous art direction;
Cons: Bosses could've been slightly more challenging, aside from the sporadic frame-rate drop during a few cut-scenes and the fact that the main campaign is a bit short, there really isn't any other downside we can think of that would spoil the fun for us.
Excerpt: I was never a fan of Ninja Theory. Kung Fu Chaos was a muddled mess, Heavenly Sword felt like a short tech demo for the first God of War , and Enslaved , although a beautiful and astounding film-esque experience, was a very sub-par video game .
Conclusion: A bright new beginning for Dante, Ninja Theory's DmC is a triumph and a positive first step towards things to come. Capcom's most successful collaboration with a western studio to date, DmC is also Ninja Theory's finest game. SSSensational.
Excerpt: You play as the half angel, half demon, lean mean fighting machine Dante, the only being on earth that can kill Mundus the Demon King. But why the hell should you care? Well that SOB killed your mother and imprisoned your Dad! So screw that, he is going down.

Summary: Devil May Cry is an absolutely fantastic game. It’s everything I wanted in a Devil May Cry reboot. Dante is just as awesome as ever, the weapons are a lot of fun to use, and the enemies are a lot of fun to fight. Devil May Cry was one of the innovators of the action genre and DMC ranks up there with the best in the genre. There are a lot of other action games coming down the pipe very shortly, and they certainly have their work cut out for them.
Conclusion: Fans of the series will find the definitive versions of all three releases in the Devil May Cry HD Collection. The first and third outings are just as exceptional now as they were on release, plus having all three games on one disc will no doubt please the fans still bemoaning the look of Ninja Theory’s upcoming reboot.
