In this retelling of Dante's origin story which is set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC Devil May Cry™ retains the stylish action, fluid combat and self-assured protagonist that have defined the iconic series but inject a more brutal and visceral edge.
The Dante of DmC is a young man who has no respect for authority or indeed society in general. Dante knows that he is not human, but also that he is not like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast. Thanks to his twin brother Vergil, leader of the anti-establishment group called “The Order”, Dante is now discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel. This split personality has a real impact on gameplay with Dante being able to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword on the fly to dramatically affect both combat and movement.
For DmC Capcom has teamed up with UK development studio, Ninja Theory, renown for delivering action titles with compelling characters and narrative coupled with high production values. The combination of Ninja Theory’s expertise and Capcom’s unrivalled heritage in producing combat focused action titles will ensure that this latest addition to the over 11-million selling series will remain true to the Devil May Cry DNA so cherished by the fans, while bringing a new level of cinematic quality to the title.
The world of Limbo is a living and breathing entity, out to kill Dante. The world will transform in real-time and try to block off and even kill our hero. Our protagonist will have to master demonic powers to shape Limbo the way he sees fit, while perfecting his angelic skills to traverse this hazardous, twisted world.
Who is Dante?:
Explore a retelling of Dante’s origin story in a gripping narrative featuring familiar faces from the series alongside all new characters, including Vergil, Dante’s twin brother.
The intense and iconic sword and gun based combat returns with the addition of new Angel and Demon weapons and abilities, all designed to dispatch the demonic spawn back to hell with style and panache. Weapons include:
Rebellion: Dante’s trusted sword, given by his father Sparda, provides a great mix of combos and attacks, great for sending enemies skyward.
Ebony & Ivory: These guns are good for keeping enemies at bay, maintaining combos and juggling enemies in the air.
Arbiter: a demonic axe that can deliver massive blows and break through enemy shields.
Osiris: an angelic scythe with fast attacks and great for crowd control.
Eryx: powerful demonic gauntlets that pack enough punch to parry even the strongest attacks and juggle the heaviest enemies.
Retaining the Devil May Cry DNA:
Capcom staff, including team members from previous Devil May Cry titles, have been assigned to the project from the outset to ensure DmC is a true addition to the Devil May Cry franchise.
Unrivalled production values:
Ninja Theory will take advantage of the latest performance capture technology to deliver a level of character design, story-telling and cinematics that perfectly complements DmC’s high-octane combat.
Dante's new looks makes it even better!akassassinn1 | Nov. 27, 2014 | See all akassassinn1's reviews »
Dante is back with a new hairdo that everybody is complaining about ,(I love it btw) and I adore Ninja Theory's take on the game overall , the demon Mundas wants the Sons of Sparda dead and he's the most powerful demon in existence , and he's also the reason of the current failures of humanity and it's ways, not to mention he's responsible for killing both of Dante's parents.
The game has 20 missions and multiple difficulty modes , and the level's feel great as they are diverse and offer more dynamism and versatility , though it is linear , you can unlock new weapons and skills by performing well in combat and getting good score in it's ranking system , by mixing up moves and combos without getting hit, you fight different enemies that have great AI and try to kill you in many fashions ,some of them are armored ,some can fly and some charge up at you like Bulls.
Boss fights are the most awesome of all , memorable and action packed though they're about remembering patterns and repetition . Dante's arsenal consists of 2 angelic weapons and 2 demonic weapons, demon ones are about heavy and slow attacks and angelic ones are about fast slashes , in addition to the pistols or shogun you cam mix them up for awesome results .
the game looks Fantastic as you rush through the normal world and it suddenly turns into Limbo , Dante's animations are sick as ever , and gruesome combat finishes are amazing, the game also offers great soundtracks and great voice acting.
overall this game is one of my greatest experiences of all time !
Slashing demons with styleKingTed | Nov. 8, 2014 | See all KingTed's reviews »
Devil May Cry is back with a new look and it's amazingly good. I was worried when I heard that Ninja Theory was developing that reboot. But fortunately, Capcom sent a few developers to help. The result is a great Beat'em all game with solid gameplay (And a a few new mechanics that deserve to be in the next game, reboot or not). Changing weapon during combos has never been that natural and fluid before. Furthermore, the UI is a lot better than in previous game. And on PC, the game runs at 60 fps!
The game also has a great Art Direction (Especially the backgrounds) and a awesome Sound Design. Noisa and Combichrist offer excellent songs that match perfectly with the atmosphere of the game. And to hear the voice over screams "SAVAGE!!" and other rank during the fights just fills one's heart with sadistic glee...
Story wise, DmC is no Shakespeare but it does a better job than the original games. The story is a mix between DMC1 and 3. It has nice dialogs and it's well told (The opposite of the former games...).
DmC is a great game that deserves better attention.
Amazing Hack And SlashImUnslanderable | Oct. 30, 2014 | See all ImUnslanderable's reviews »
I know this is kind of late, but I just wanna give my opinion. I have seen reviews saying this game isn't worth full price and I really don't understand why, this game has the basic hack and slash mechanics but it has a VERY good combo system that rewards you with points if you are good, it's all about mastering combos. And it actually has a REALLY good story, it's not just tacked on. The difficulties in this game have a perfect gap. This is the best hack and slash game I have ever played, yes I think it's better than God Of War IMO. Definitely worth full price if you want to buy it

It is an interesting revamp of the original Devil May Cry. I love the original series to death but this game has its own unique strengths. Plot is more modern and urban, less so fantasy.

This is actually a very enjoyable game with a beautiful aesthetic, excellent combat and a kicking sound track. Dante may have be re-designed, but make no mistake, he's as vicious as ever, and it is your loss for missing out on this. Just give it a chance, and you won't be disappointed.
