I'm not gonna lie when I first herd about this game I was upset about all the changes they made. From Dante's Black Hair Emo look to this game looking like a prequel. As I was playing this game I kinda realized that it's not a prequel but yet a simply reboot of the franchise. As I felt Ninja Theory did a great job and taking it in another direction. For one this game has a lot more platforming than the previous Devil May Cry games, I personally didn't mind it even thought it caught me off guard but the controls for the jumping and the mechanics and powers for the platforming is pretty good for that matter. I also did enjoy all the additional weapons Dante was provided with mainly because in previous Devil May Cry games you get so many weapons you don't really use them all and plus on top of that, you have to equip the weapon your using. This game all the weapons can be used anytime you want and I like that because once you get used to the game play and everything it's very easy to pull off a Stylish combo.
Things I didn't like about the game.
I'm a huge fan of boss battles in Devil May Cry, and I kinda felt the boss battles in this game was lacking a bit. Although It's nowhere near as bad as Devil May Cry 2 boss battles.
Dante's Ambition to want to save the world all of a sudden. I kinda like how they made out Dante as someone who has powers but doesn't really use them to save the world. When he's introduced he just comes across as this selfish guy who likes to party all day & night. and then all of a sudden he's found and is forced to fight his way out of limbo. He then meets Virgil who's his brother and then Virgil sends him on this mission and then all of a sudden it seems like Dante cares and wants to fight for Mankind. I felt they could've done that a lot smoother and made Dante's motivation a bit more touching and sympathetic for the audience.
There's no Bloody Palace, I felt combat in this game is the best ever in the series, I just wish they had

I am a big fan of the Devil May Cry franchise that when I heard they were making a new one, I knew I wanted to play it and buy it. The gameplay is a bit different then the previous ones and you get different powers, but that's what makes this game so unique and awesome in it's own way. The storyline has some of the same characters as in the others in the franchise like Dante and Mundus , although Dante's look is a bit different he still has the same fight in him as in previous titles. I would absolutely recommend gamers to buy this title instead of renting cause it's so good that you won't want to put the controller down.
