DmC: Devil May Cry is by far the best hack-and-slash game i've played ever. It has a dark, gritty style, a good back-story, and overall it fulfills it's role as a prequel to the 1st DMC.
Story: Phenomenal, Very well told, and humorous as well in appropriate parts. I welcome the dante in DmC because he is not technically the "new" dante as some (angryjoe and other reviewers) portray him to be, he is who dante was before Devil May Cry. Also, contrary to popular belief, this is not emo themed, it's dark and it's evil (which I love).
Dante: Treats all demons like garbage so you can see traces of future dante in this dante, also he's a punk but he's a good punk, and yeah he swears but it's basically what everybody in modern society does anyways so it's not a problem.
Vergil: Personally I don't like vergil, just getting that out there, but I like his new voice actor and also how he's more "angel" themed and dante is "demon" themed, so their relationship as twins even carries over into their powers.
Kat: she's hot, that's all I gotta say really, but to be honest, I wish her character did more.
Gameplay: Very immersible, after playing for a while, you really get into it, for instance this game is my stress relief game, because after playing and releasing my rage on nearby demons, I feel drained, which is good for me cause that means it worked. Combos are very stylish, dante moves realistically with his weapon(s), and your style meter rises faster the more you switch up your combos. The only 2 things wrong with the game that earn this only a 9/10, the camera and the absence of a lock-on feature. The camera will sometimes frustrate you because it will go off during an evade or dodge in a random direction or random zoom-in/out making fighting a little more complicated, but it gets really bad during the final boss (no spoilers n00bs).
overall, I love this game, and I will be buying it from gamefly

Overall, DMC was awesome. I love the interaction between Dante & Virgil. They did a great job at portraying their brotherly love. I wish the game had been a little longer though and they hinted multiple times at the relationship between Kat & Dante. It felt like I watched a movie and the scene got cut.
