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.
The end? Don't bet on it.jinkarasu | May 5, 2013 | See all jinkarasu's reviews »
There's some subtle throw backs to the previous DmC games. Awesome soundtrack (in my opinion), great gameplay, great visuals. Worth playing, even if you haven't played the original quadrilogy, as this is a retelling of Dante's origins. However, this is definitely not a game for kids, which you can find that out rather quickly within the intro. Wasn't too thrilled with Vergil's Downfall, especially not for the price. They skimped on the "cut scenes", and it was extremely short. Definitely loved all the sarcastic comments and humor thrown in for good measure to keep Dante's old personality at least somewhat intact. I'm hoping they add something further to the game, or they continue with the series after this.

Much will be discussed about the reboot that Capcom made the series, and lo and behold the game is wonderful, great gameplay (common grade) great story (or great as could say: P) the game can hold you in almost 10hrs of gameplay, with lots of electronic music and rock and a hard fuck, then, as usual, the game has several difficulties that opens only when you go finishing the game, I personally really enjoy the game, I recommend it to everyone who want a good hack'n'slash for fun
As good as DMC 3, if not betterVahgrant | April 29, 2013 | See all Vahgrant's reviews »
First of all, DmC: Devil May Cry is the best hack n' slash since Bayonetta and offers an excellent opportunity to make the series shine again. Beautiful, fun, with an interesting story and most of all thrilling thanks to its gameplay and its level design, DmC: Devil May Cry is THE reboot the series needed. From the beginning to the end, the game stays impressive thanks to its originality and its freshness with some memorable levels such as Lilith's Club. The deep gameplay, allowing you to switch between Demon, Angel and Human weapons and skills, makes the player feel powerful. The level design, based on an organic world always moving, always surprises you. And the graphics and design of the enemies and bosses is as disturbing as it's great. Overall, DmC: Devil May Cry is a unique and crazy experience that every action player must try.

As the title says, I definitely did not expect the game to be this good! The game is very fun to play because of the smooth combat! I have not been a fan of the DmC series so i cannot compare it to previous entries in the series but this game is highly recommended!

To address the elephant in the room, this game is easy compared to classic dmc games, and feels more like nero than classic dante to me. the mechanics are extremely fluid, you carry all your weapons instead of "banking" them, and can quickly switch between weapon classes using the triggers, with only 5 melee weapons total, and a maximum of 2 to cycle between with the dpad per direction. Getting massive Aerial is Still insanely fun though, and a great way to spend time. my preferred method of playing is to connect my computer to a tv and hook up a 360 controller, which is natively recognized, and it feels as though that's the way the game's meant to be played. If you enjoy hack'n'slash games, I would enthusiastically recommend.
