This is the first DMC game I've played. I'm not sure why I've skipped on the other so far but after finishing this one, I'm gonna give the others a try. This is simply a well-designed action game with an amazing combat system, amazing level design and memorable boss encounters. As crazy as the story gets, it even finds room for humor (e.g., the cut scene where Dante & Virgil playfully argue who is better). Even on default difficulty, it's very challenging and I died quite often on battle scenes due to not analyzing enemy movement or using the dodge button. There are moments of traversal that require you to use your whip and jump boost that have to be executed at the right time; I was quite clumsy in those moments but I got the hang of them. Overall, a fun and thrilling action game that I dedicated two afternoons (and evenings) to finishing.

So yes i was skeptical because of dante an his BLACK hair but once you play the game it becomes clear why his hair is black.(After all this is the beging of the series as far as i know) This game still felt like the older games with a new splash of god of war kinda feel to some of the controls, which the new controls add tons of variations to your attacks an adding up style points. Great story, great graphics, and overall what this genre should be.
My only real complaints are sometimes i get sick of jumping around and the virgil dlc. I was so excited to be virgil an he was alright but kinda lame compared to dante. His combos were lackluster and hard to find ways to combine them, an overall he wasnt "fun" to use like dante with his flowing combos.

I mean what can I say if you like devil may cry then you will enjoy this title, killed a lot of time for me had a great story if you ask me seems almost like a prequel don't know if that is what its supposed to be or not but that's just what it felt like to me overall the combat system is basic devil may cry fancy combos mixed with gunshots to keep it going devil triggers and what not but the story was just pretty darn good if you ask me I would say to give it a try if you like mindless violent games to pass some time this is for you
