So just beat DMC an I'm gonna review it but first here is the thing you must remember an understand about this game:
You must remember above all is this game is a REBOOT it follows non of the storylines put forth in the other games story except that there's Mundus,Virgil,an Dante.
Ok so the review:
This game was good it was sadly very short VERY SHORT,I did like that they made Dante Ubber powerful every demon you faced in this game (including Mundus an to an extent Virgil) was easily defeated by your weapons. The fighting is exactly what you have come to expect from DMC.
At times it's horrible graphic an the language got alittle foul at times(see the Succbus take kids outta the room for that fight) some of the levels gave me Vertigo but there were very bright an colorful.
The best added feature of the game as the ability to take off an put on upgrades to your weapons(which all DMC fans will appericate) but that was about it nothing to new about this one feature wise.
All in all it's a good game doesn't come close to any of the other games (except beating 2 by a wide margin) but this game left me wanting more but as a DMC fanboy I still had to play an glad I didn't shell out 60 bucks for it but defeintly perfect for game fly
I usually dont like games of this type because they feel very "button mashy" but I liked the fact that this game had you actually think of which attacks work with what enemies. You had to be precise in your button combinations to make long jumps and pull yourself in mid-air to the ledge. Good story as well. All around surprised by how much I enjoyed the game.

I refuse to buy any games anymore unless it's Madden or NBA2K series,because I can play them online over & over again & get a new experience each time.
Games like DMC:Devil May Cry are the biggest reason why games should cost about $25-$30 at the most. $60 for a game that has some major flaws & that just isn't that good.
The original Devil May Cry on PS2 is light years ahead of this game. The last few missions on this game were okay,and actually showed promise,but overall the game was just boring & I basically got through it just so I could say "Yeah,I beat that game."
It was like a chore getting through the campaign though.The storyline was not interesting,the obvious (SPOILER ALERT>>SPOILER ALERT>>)
fight between Dante & Virgil was a nuisance too...When you play a game & you know that at the end it will come down to this,what is the point of paying attention to the story? I've seen enough movies & played enough video games to know every cliche in the book.
Seriously,on another note,was this game originally planned as an early PS3 release? Because yeah graphically it was ok,but the game play was pretty bad. When you have to hook onto the rings to glide from one to the other,it sometimes wouldn't work.Bugs like that are annoying & kill the gaming experience for me.
I can't say that this game was bad,because it wasn't,but there is no need to make a game where you can learn like 50 different combos,but can beat it using just the basics...
And the dialogue..Wow..Who wrote this? An angry 12 year old that listens to Shinedown & thinks that they're hardcore?
They tried way too hard to make this game edgy & cool,and in reality it comes off as vomit inducing. This new Dante is nowhere nearly as interesting as the original . Also,why is this new one half demon & half angel? A big part of the original Dante's appeal was that he was half human...
I understand that they were looking to go in a different direction,but it didn't work.Rent it,beat it,re
