DmC Devil May Cry
Good Game, Graphics, Game Play, I wonder if the plot will unfold good. The Game receives a7 from me.
PROS: Combat is amazing, graphics are pretty good, music is just a perfect flow to the game, and the story is actually decent. Environments were beautiful, and boss fights were very smooth and amazing, a must buy!
CONS: I do like the Limbo theme, but it might just be me but all the red and flashing lights frequently gave me headaches. Enemy variety could definitely have been more extensive because just throwing shields on them or changing their colors was kind of a let down, and the game overall is too short.
This is a series reboot so it has nothing to do with the previous games which is kind of a let down, but they did a very good job and look forward to the sequels.
Dante may have Black hair, but I have high hopes!
In fact, I'm one of the few people who didn't feel outraged by his redesign! Even if I was, I'd still want to play it! I purchased the Demo a few weeks ago, and when I played it, I got pumped!!! I mean you could get to places using one of two different powers, angelic or demonic! And the Boss fight that came with the demo was how bosses should be made! Plus, I just love the graphics! Devil May Cry has never looked THIS realistic, not even on Devil May Cry 4!!! I hope the adrenaline this demo gave me pays off in the full release!
It may not be as the same ones in the past but overall i think it will be some somewhat better..i played the demo and it was epic.
The game I almost didnt buy
At first when I saw the trailers for this game I was highly against it, To me it seemed they were taking a character I had became very attached to and just ripping him apart. He looked a lot worse then the old Dante they changed up his weapons and everything after seeing that I almost swore off this game I didn't even want to rent it. But then came the free demo on xbox live and I thought to myself ehh what can it hurt its free, after I downloaded it and finally played I was blown away at how good it was the controls were just as good as any of the other dmc games the graphics and boss battles were epic and the music really tied it in and the story wasn't bad either. It was safe to say after that I reserved the game and I think its amazing I still don't like the knew look of Dante but aside from that the game is great I hope they keep adding to the story and make others but that dosent mean I want them to stop with the old Dante either they can keep making this and hopefully get back to the old dmc I feel that series isn't quite done yet.
Now I'm Sold. Can't Wait!
I was skeptical of this game at first. Then, I played the demo. After that I preordered immediately.
I'm an oldschool DMC fan. I played all of the devil may cry series and actually beat them all before this game came out just to brush up a bit. First looks on the trailers and screens I was kinda bummed at first assuming it would be another input character into the series like devil may cry 4. Then at the end "My name is Dante".... I was pretty mixed on the whole feel of dante being a gothic-style punk. Found out it was a reboot and was starting to get upset. But I beat the game and not gonna lie it was awesome. It is a visual mind-melter, the fighting mechanics are polished (a lil tricky at first), the story is solid (more as if watching/playing an action hack n slash Constantine), brutally raw (vulgar language, nudity, gore.... everything a growing boy needs lol), and just, for me, an overall awesome fun playing experience. So all in all I recommend this to anyone looking for a good game to play.
I have played every Devil May Cry game. I replayed them all in the HD collection the week before this game. DmC Devil May Cry is the best one I have played. The style of Limbo is so amazing and vast. Each mission has a completely different look and life. The combat is fluid and so diverse with the ability to switch between 5 weapons all in one glorious combo. The character of Dante in this is really well developed. He is the typical anti-hero with the same humor and nonchalance of the original Dante. The platforming is solid and fun. The music fits each part and fits in with the sound tracks for the DMC series. The people who refuse to pick this up because of an change in the main characters look are missing the fun. The story is way better than any previous and yes better than DMC3. Virgil is so well written too. All in all this is a must have for any fan of DMC or anyone who enjoys this genre of games. A new start lets others in on the fun without feeling lost. If this is your first experience with DMC pick up Devil May Cry 4 and the HD collection for more action.
Don't Understand Why So Much Hate, I Love It!
When I heard there was going to be a DmC reboot I was a bit skeptical I admit but after playing the game I was instantly sold. I've played all the DmC games and am a HUGE fan and I think this game does the original games justice. The character design of Dante takes a bit of getting used to but I think its great now because its sort of a modern day take on what a young Dante would be like and he still has his sarcastic and laid back attitude so thats also great.The graphics are excellent and I still get that gothic/dark type atmosphere that I got from the original. The controls feel natural like the other games which is very important for me personally so it was very easy to settle in to. I also like minor updates like the different face on the orbs and how the lost souls look, that was a pretty neat touch. Another really great change was the upgrade system. You don't have to collect millions of red orbs to upgrade but instead defeat enemies and collect the white orbs they drop which I definitely prefer over the old system. It feels like I can get faster upgrades but not so fast that the game becomes super easy and boring. The last change that I think is one of the most important is the music. I LOVED the music in the other games so I really hoped for the same type in this game and the developers definitely came through. The music is great and it gives me the same hack n' slash feeling I got from the other games. Overall I am very happy I purchased this game and I think many DmC fans will enjoy it if they just give it a chance!
Absolutely will not buy, play, or look at this
I just saw a preview of this game. I thought I could get over them changing Dante's image. I really did. However, now I'm learning that Vergil is in the game and not only that, his design is thrown in the toilet as well. And not only their designs, but their character. Vergil was a cold hearted evil brother in DMC3. And Dante has always been a wise cracking buttmunch for lack of a better word. And now I wouldn't even call this a Devil May Cry game. It's like they just slapped Dante's name on a half done project of another game. This game hasn't even come out yet and already it's the worst in the series. And that's saying something with Devil May Cry 2. I will not purchase this game. I will never play this game, And I'm trying not to look at this trainwreck of a game.
