DMC: Devil May Cry – Review (360, PS3)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Ninja Theory haters, I bring you bad news. As prejudiced as you all were, as determined as you all were to ignore the visual quality of the trailers leading up to its release, and as contemptuous as you all were of people who actually liked what they saw, it may come as a surprise for you to know that DmC: Devil May Cry is a good game.

The Devil's Uprising

30 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Vergil's unlockable skin looks very, very silly.
  • Pros: An all new fighting style to smash some skulls with.

DmC Devil May Cry Review

30 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Boy, do the folks at Ninja Theory have some serious cojones. In DmC’s first hour, there’s a moment of such breathtaking audacity that I didn’t know whether to laugh or gasp. The question is whether the developer has earned it. Initially, I figured it had. Since the announcement that the Cambridge-based studio was now in command of one of Capcom’s most popular series the abuse has been frequent and vitriolic.

DmC: Devil May Cry - Vergil's Downfall Review

22 March 2013
  • Summary: Fresh combat and stylish visuals make Vergil's Downfall a fun addition to DmC: Devil May Cry, despite a less-than-stellar story.
  • Pros: Lots of new powers to sink your teeth into, Vergil's technically challenging combat feels distinct from Dante's, Visually impressive, anime-style cutscenes
  • Cons: Not much in the way of new enemies to fight, Story does little to keep you engaged

DmC: Devil May Cry - Vergil's Downfall

5 March 2013
  • Excerpt: One of the most controversial parts of Ninja Theory’s awesome DmC: Devil May Cry was the recasting of Dante as a dark-haired hipster fighting a modern battle in Limbo. For better and worse, Vergil’s Downfall takes a step back from the recent reboot, feeling more like a throwback to previous Devil May Cry games . Vergil himself is old-school: white-haired, humorless, and seeking vengeance in a more hellish locale than his brother’s earthly domain.
  • Pros: + Vergil’s as fun to play as Dante, with a very nuanced suite of attacks., + Tougher battles will test your mettle; lengthy campaign for $9.
  • Cons: - Critical encounters don’t pay off; levels suffer from recycling and lack of variety., ? Will Kat get a DLC quest next? We’d play it!

DmC Devil May Cry Review (XBOX 360/PS3/PC)

14 February 2013
  • Conclusion: All controversy aside, this game adds an alternate take on the story of the Son of Sparda. I believe reboots exist because developers hit a wall and need a clean start to tell a story. This may or may not be the case but I really believe this reboot is enjoyable and welcome.
  • Pros: The series is a hack and slash genre and the bread and butter of the game. Every time I fought a horde of demons the action was so smooth and buttery. Add in the ability to cancel attacks and continue combos I was more than happy when I saw my combo counter reach SSS when swarmed in limbo. As a note, switching between your arsenals is no more than shoulder button hold away. On the fly mechanics add layers to the combat and make for some endless combos that boost Dante...
  • Cons: The plaforming sections are uninspired and add little to the game except to break battle sections. The basic premise is to use your weapons as a grapple to either push or pull Dante along the level. The idea is fun and some nice switch ups add a bit of challenge but really add nothing to the experience. A few camera hiccups time to time but nothing that doesn’t straighten itself out. The camera is for the most part great and adjusts on the fly to situations as you mov...
