DmC Devil May Cry
I reserve judgement until I see actual gameplay.
After playing the demo, I must admit that I am intrigued at playing this new version of Dante--much like Nero did in the last game, we are subjected to something familiar told in a different way which in turn brings new life and excitement to an old character; paving the way for veterans of the series and rookies alike. I will be pre-ordering this one.
In DMC Dante returns with a new look and improved gameplay that makes slicing and dicing up demons more fun then before. In DMC you play as Dante, son of Sparda, and you seek to destroy the demon lord Mundus because he slew your mother and imprisoned your father. Dante then learns new powerful moves, obtains new weapons, and unlock the secrets of his past along the way. The gameplay in DMC is very smooth and you can quickly transition between weapons and take out multiple enemies in a large variety of ways. Throwing one enemy in the air slamming it down transitioning to a giant ax and a scythe to deliver devastating combos. The storyline is extremely compelling and you get hooked in the opening scenes of the game. I had some good laughs while playing the game and it never failed to keep me interested. I can't wait for future installments in future DMC games and see what Dante will do next. If you liked my review hit me a thumbs up and add me on PSN so we can play Borderlands 2, Resident Evil 5/6, Call of Duty Black Ops2, Far Cry 3, or any other games you would like to play.

A bold reboot for the DMC series
DMC will be the fifth Devil May Cry game in the series...but instead of continuing the story from where DMC 4 left off, it appears it'll be a reboot that takes place before the first game. The most obvious change--and most controversial--is that Dante's look has been altered dramatically. He's lost his signature white hair, he's slimmer, gothier, and decidedly more strung-out looking. However, preliminary videos seem to show that the classic DMC gameplay has remained intact. There's swordplay, guns, air combos, demons, giant bosses--the works. The new Angel and Demon powers mechanic could add an interesting element to the mix, perhaps similar to the Holy and Unholy powers in Dante's Inferno. But ultimately, will the story and level design of DMC have what it takes to impress? True, the series has stumbled in the past (remember the drab and repetitive DMC 2?), but I urge fans to be patient with this one before they dismiss it completely.
The Best Hack N' Slash, at the moment.
DmC Devil may Cry is a top-notch demon killing game. This was my first Hack N' Slash game. However, I played Metal Gear Rising, and Devil may Cry 3, after playing the most recent installment of Devil may Cry. I thought this game was near perfect. The gameplay was phenomenal. There are a ton of different moves to learn it would take an average gamer months of committed gaming time to master this game. The ranking system is awesome too. As you go on a streak of slashing demons, without getting hit, your ranking goes up higher. When you hit the highest rank (SSS) it brings chills down your spine, as you hear the game yell "SENSATIONAL". The graphics are very good as well. The music is decent. You will find better music in other games, but this music goes well with killing demons. All in all, this is a solid Hack N' Slash. A perfect length game, with a lot of challenging difficulties. A must buy if you like Hack N' Slash games, or if your looking to get into Hack N' Slash games. 9.5/10
Loved it, it's one of my favorites.
My background: Of the classic DMCs, I've only played a little of the first one, owned and beat the second one, and tried a few minutes of the third one. When the demo for this game came out, I tried it out, and I was sold.
Review: I'm not being overly generous with the ratings I gave. There's nothing really negative I found about this game, it was really fun. Gameplay - I love the combo system and all the weapons they give you to play with. The enemies each have to be approached differently, so even though it's a hack-and-slash game, it doesn't feel too repetitive since you have to switch between weapons that are more effective against certain enemies. The boss fights, although pretty easy, are still fun and I like the enemy designs. Graphics - I like the design and approach of this reboot. It's not the same gothic feel as classic DMC which I liked, but it has a modern, urban feel to it that I liked too. I'll admit when I first read about this reboot and saw the new Dante, I didn't think I'd like it either. But when I tried the demo, I think everything worked. The environment trying to literally come after Dante is a nice touch. Sound - Like the graphics/visuals, the sound tied in everything nicely together. The soundtrack suits the young, punk feel of Dante. And the SFX during combat are good as well. Lasting Appeal - after beating the game once, you'll want to try the other difficulty settings you unlock, like the one hit death for Dante as a challenge. There's also bonus mission challenges that are fun to try to beat, and secrets to unlock. If you're competitive, there's scoreboards for each mission you do to see how well you did. There's good replay value to this game.
Conclusion: It's not classic DMC, but this reboot is still a good game to be enjoyed. I haven't tried the DLC Vergil's Downfall, but I'm definitely looking to get it sometime.
ok if in any review you hear anything about how his hair is different he isn't supposed to be half angel he looks emo well just stop..... just stop reading that one because that is called bias. i have played every dmc and loved every dmc i was a fanboy and i still loved this game. as long as it is a good game thats all there is to it. anyway good story probably the best for a dmc game the setting is also superb how dante hops through limbo and reality. combos are nice and fluent the game is a challenge but not as hard as the others so dont worry about setting it to hardest difficulty. sound is superb the ps3 version does seem to have sometimes strange framing but for the most part it is not noticable. the only downside is dante's hair just kidding the amount you can do in the game is limited its pretty much just the story and thats it but buy or rent it and just enjoy
The demo says it all
OK when i first seen this game i was like every one else, i hated the fact they changed dante and the story but after playing the demo and getting a look at how the game is i have to say it is amazing i honestly don't care about dante's look anymore his attitude is the same if not better and the game play is amazing so to the people who keep saying don't judge it before you play it thank you.
Don't Judge a Game Before It's Out.
I really love how people are already knocking a game that hasn't even come out yet. Yes, it changes Dante's hair color and it drastically alters the story, but lets face it, there hasn't really been a full and honest back story on Dante. We never really knew who his mother was and we all know that aside from an attitude, he didn't really show much of his demon side. For now, I'm reserving the right to hold judgement until the game is out and I've played it for myself. A lot of people tend to be cold about changes but I, for one, am eagerly looking forward to it and hope it will answer any and all questions I had left. The fact that the preorder bonus for power up members is getting to play as Vergil is something no other DMC title has ever offered us and allows us a glimpse at the other brother and well known person of the DMC series, thanks to DMC 3. And remember, if you don't like it, you can always trade it in within the first month its out and get over half your money back toward something else. All I'm saying is give it a chance to be a game before you knock it. I'm more than certain they will explain things as to why they are the way they are, and even I believe that Dante didn't always have his white hair. But then again, I always believe in the benefit of the doubt.
A good edition to the devil may cry series
i love the devil may cry series (except for devil may cry 2). To this day devil may cry 3 is one of my favorite games of all time. I was ecstatic when they released the devil may cry hd collection and i enjoyed playing devil may cry 4. What i guess i'm trying to say is that i'm a avid devil may cry fan. So as any true fan i was very worried when i read that dmc will be in the hands of a new developer and that they were redesigning the entire devil may cry universe. However ninja theory knew what they were doing. This game is good. Plain and simple. If you liked the devil may cry series before you will find that this game does not disappointing. The hack and slash action is as fluid and fun as ever. The level designing is amazing. The music aint half bad .My only complaint is the dialogue. At times it can be unbearable to listen to and the rest of the times its tolerable but overall its pretty bad. BUT that shouldn't keep you from playing this game. This is a good game and if you had any fears that this might be the end of devil may cry you are very much mistaken. In fact i expect an entire new series to spawn from this game and i look forward to it.
I really like the story for this game, we finally get to see a real beginning to Dante and Virgil with interesting ideas of how it all started. In my opinion the new Dante was well developed and the new look suits him well although he may not look anything like the old cool Dante everybody is used to. Like they said, it is a new fresh start with a western approach to the Dmc series, and they did a really good job. The gameplay is fun and complex, there are so many ways of doing combos that is really up to you how you want to fight plus with the improved control system it makes it really smooth for everybody but especially for experienced players that like to do crazy long combos. I loved the music, Combichrist did an awesoome job recording those songs for the game they fit perfectly with the mood and Dmc style. Overall awesome game and not to mention challenging trophies but worth getting the platinum.
