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: They Live or watch The Daily Show , then you have seen these Occupy Wall Street type topics, handled much better. Still, they do not detract from the part of the story concerned with evil demons, so it is easy to look past them. The game looks really cool, with good-looking character models, moody and well-lit scenery and fantastic character animations.
Excerpt: Nobody could accuse Ninja Theory of lacking confidence. The opening chapter of their re-imagined Devil May Cry begins with demonic strippers thrusting at the camera during a raucous dubstep infused credits sequence. We’re introduced to the re-designed youthful, crew-cut Dante as he engages in some late night salacious partying on a Santa Monica style pier.
Excerpt: "The devil is in the details." That's what fans of the original Devil May Cry games thought when they first heard of Ninja Theory's reboot or reimagination or redo or whatever you want to call it. "Heyyy! His hair isn't white! You're ruining it! WHINE!!" God... bitch, bitch, bitch. Is that all you ever do? Why don't you skip the chatter and try the game for yourself? You might find something you like.
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.
