Now i'm not a DMC superfan by any means, i've played and beaten DMC 1, 2, 3, and 4 but i don't worship the games, so when i heard Ninja Theory was getting a shot at the series i was interested in seeing what they could do with it.
Now about a month or so after release, i finally got around to playing this and i have to say i'm pleasantly surprised. DmC is not just a okay game, its very good. The action may not be quite what you'd expected out of something like a DMC 3, but it's super solid and fun nonetheless. The story is EASILY the best and most interesting of the series, set in the modern world where all life is secretly connected to or controlled by demon activity. Dante is as cocky as you'd expect and the female character Kat is an interesting addition to the cast. Vergil is also in the game, heading a underground group named "The Order", a group set on destroying the demon Mundus and his grip over humanity in the process.
Whether you're a DMC fanboy or you just love action games in general, open your mind and give this a try. If you dislike the game on it's own, that's fine, but don't take it out on the developers who worked so hard to put out the best game they've made so far.
Ninja Theory has come a long way from Heavenly Sword and whether it's DmC 2 or something else entirely, i will most definitely be checking out whatever they make next.
Now I'll be the first to say this: I really don't care about how the new Dante looks. That's not what this game should be known for. Let me give you an honest review of this game.
Story - this game is a re boot, meaning a new story that still kind of stays true to its original roots. I wont say to much but all in all, I'd say the story is rather good.
Gameplay - not much to complain about. I think it may have gotten a little redundant every now and then but i still liked it. Still kind of wish there was more variety in weaponry. Also, I would have liked a mosh pit mode where we could fight endless hordes of enemies but that didn't happen. Its safe to say this game deserves an 8/10 for good story, pretty good gameplay, but still a bit redundant and there wasn't much to do except the story.
