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.
