DMC Devil May Cry is the prequel to the #1 PS2 trilogy. Does it have what it takes to overcumb the hype and anxiety that is the fans?
Presentation - You are Dante. A Nephillim, half angel half demon, who just lives life as a human with humans. He drinks, he screws, and he parties until the arrival of a mysterious organization known as The Order meets up with him. He finds out who these people are and believe it or not but (SPOILER) the leader of this organization is Vergil, Dante's long lost twin brother. So Dante is told what has happened and what the demons have done to brain wash us humans and that Mundus is the boss of all the demons and Mundus just so happens to be the one who killed their mother and imprisoned their father in heck for eternity. The cutscenes look amazing but what I love most is that Ninja Theory managed to use the camera like in movies such as Star Trek and move it around to make it seem like you're watching something that's actually happening right now. The graphics couldn't be better and the color is so colorful throughout the whole game, especially in LIMBO.
Gameplay - The combat is smoother and faster than ever mixing Ebony & Ivory once again with Rebellion and quite a bit more weapons that you discover throughout the game. It's the same as any other Devil May Cry game but the combat is more refined to fit each combo, each hit, together all in one combo streak.
The Verdict - DMC Devil May Cry is by far the coolest and most energetic game I've ever had the priviledge to beat with an amazingly addictive story and unrepetitive smooth combat. Yeah, people would shun this game just because Dante has black hair but all I can say is that you are missing out big time. I give DMC Devil May Cry 10/10.
