A Successful Reboot

Sark4458 | Aug. 21, 2013 | Review of DmC: Devil May Cry

Despite the large amount of criticism this game drew for altering the image of the main character, Ninja Theory was able to create a very well done game.

Still in line with its predecessors DMC is a hack and slash game with fast pacing. With the levels being broken into chapters you find yourself being pushed forwards at a constant pace, encountering a boss every couple of chapters.

Game play can be broken down into Combat and Platforming. Combat comprises most of the game and it is very fluid and fun. Being able to switch weapons on the fly lets you create some interesting combo chains. That being said the game feels like it was designed for use with a controller rather than a mouse and keyboard. Platforming is thankfully limited and when it occurs it is not a hindrance.

Graphically DMC is not the most intense of all games, but still eye catching. Most systems should be able to get a decent looking game out of it, even if on the lower settings.

Overall I would definitely recommend DMC if your looking for a decent hack and slash game.
