The game overall has a pretty good execution. It sets up the ensuing chaos that makes this game what it is. The game mechanics are pretty good and the visuals are pretty good as well. The story seems to be interesting, but it will tend to lose you from time to time. Character development was alright even though this is definitely a 180 from what we are used to in the series. Language is really harsh even for Dante and has a lot of blatantly crude humor. It's an acquired taste to say the least. I can't say the story is the highlight of the game, but the combat is the best thing about it.
The game has a small variety of weapons at your disposal. It makes the combat very interesting. The only problem I have is the targeting system. It's all automatic. You have no control over it and this makes the camera your enemy at crucial moments.
I guess in Devil May Cry fashion, it still has all of the crazy hard modes, but Dante Must Die isn't the final difficulty. It actually has difficulties tougher than that. Can't say I'm a fan of the harder difficulties, but to each his own.
The game has its pros and cons. Some of which that work against each other from time to time. It's an alright game, but as a reboot I think it was unnecessary. The new material could have possibly been used and incorporated into an already established series, but that's just me. I think it's a good renter.
the story in DMC isn't the best, nor are the graphics but the gameplay is spot on. with quick heavy hitting weapons and some awesome combos you will find yourself heading back again and again to kick some Demon butt!!!!!
