Overall i think ninja theory did an amazing job! The story is the best out of them all imo, and the fighting style/combos are easy to put together. I like how theres 4 different weapons available at all times (even tho you can change them out for more) and its so easy to combine those 4 weapons into different combos. Graphics are pretty dang good at least for 360. Also I remember in the past dmc's the camera angle was complete garbage, I didnt seem to find a problem with it this time. Overall great game, a definite rent

The game overall has a pretty good execution. It sets up the ensuing chaos that makes this game what it is. The game mechanics are pretty good and the visuals are pretty good as well. The story seems to be interesting, but it will tend to lose you from time to time. Character development was alright even though this is definitely a 180 from what we are used to in the series. Language is really harsh even for Dante and has a lot of blatantly crude humor. It's an acquired taste to say the least. I can't say the story is the highlight of the game, but the combat is the best thing about it.
The game has a small variety of weapons at your disposal. It makes the combat very interesting. The only problem I have is the targeting system. It's all automatic. You have no control over it and this makes the camera your enemy at crucial moments.
I guess in Devil May Cry fashion, it still has all of the crazy hard modes, but Dante Must Die isn't the final difficulty. It actually has difficulties tougher than that. Can't say I'm a fan of the harder difficulties, but to each his own.
The game has its pros and cons. Some of which that work against each other from time to time. It's an alright game, but as a reboot I think it was unnecessary. The new material could have possibly been used and incorporated into an already established series, but that's just me. I think it's a good renter.
