Devil May Cry

Devil May Cry is one of the top japanese game series and this one brings significant changes. If you are a fanatic DMC fan and are faithful to the current series, then chances are you will not appreciate this reboot of the series. Developer Ninja Theory tells a new story that starts at the beginning.

The Beginning:

It becomes quite clear when the game starts: you get the bad guy (Mundus) to see who immediately just demonstrates that he has the whole world dominated by financial debts - he has even the president of America under the thumb - then the hero of the story comes into the picture.This hero is of course Dante, though he has had a complete makeover. His iconic white hairs are dark brown and he looks a lot younger. Dante is in a club where he sees a couple of hotties, dressed as angels, and he takes them home.

The Story:

In this story we go back to the origins of this renewed Dante. He is superhumanly strong and bored. The morning after the intro scene, he wakes up with scratches on his back from the, apparently, rough night before. Dante meets this girl called: Kat, a girl who tries to warn of upcoming danger: a demon who hunts Dante.The story of DmC creates promises of intelligent writing and strong social commentary, and therefore makes it all the more painful when the plot failed in "we are good, they are bad, and we are the only ones who can stop the bad guys."

The overall style and design are just consistently good. The artwork during loading screens, the cool design of the enemies and the fatty soundtrack give DmC a really cool vibe to it. Especially the soundtrack assists in the overall roughness of the game.The new look of Dante is not overly tough, he's pretty thin and looks like a normal young man in simple clothes. It is especially this devil may careattitude during cut-scenes that makes him cool.

These cut scenes are beautifully animated with believable facial animation and lip sync tight. The voice actors give everything so you'll soon be dragged into the world of DmC. Each scene invites you to continue playing.

The combat system is a feast for the eye and provides enough depth to endlessly tweak. This is where the game comes together perfectly, where style and content go hand in hand and a damn cool experience. For the beginner it is accessible enough to enjoy the spectacle, and for the experienced hack 'n slasher is the infinite possibility of varying a great challenge.

                                                  You wil enjoy every second!

Assasin's Creed 3

Assassin's Creed III takes place between 1753 and 1783 during the war of independence that the then American colonies fought against the British. The game is set in New York, Boston and surrounded by forests and mountains.

Players take on the role of Connor, a man with a British father and American Indian mother. Connor is raised by the Mohawk tribe. The settlers burn the Mohawk village to the ground and Connor decides to dedicate his life to fighting this oppression and injustice.

Connor will have to fight large animals, climbing trees and large scale battles. Also new are the naval battles, players can control themselves a galleon and with various types of cannon balls they can attack and sink their opponents.

There is a extensive multiplayer that has several modes where people can go toe to toe, like Wanted, Manhunt, Artifact Assault, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. Then there is a new Wolfpack mode, where up to four players can play together against increasingly difficult waves of computer controlled enemies.
