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.

I was that guy. The fanboy from playing the original DMC in my two bedroom apartment many many years ago. The first DMC for the PlayStation 2 was designed to be resident evil 4. So far they got away from the story that RE4 was scraped and DMC was given its own game.
Moving on to the reboot. The game is amazing and has a taken a once great franchise and reinvented itself for the next generation. Lots of reviewers talk about how its either completely different or not even close to the DMC franchise, that it makes you wonder if they have even played the original games. Back in the day static screens were about as good as it was going to get. Then true 3d environments began to get better and better hence DMC2 and 3. However still nothing greater could top the technical aspects of DMC4 for the at the time next gen consoles.
The new DMC migrated from B movie to A movie with this reboot. Dante is still Dante with an updated look that even I don't fully appreciate. The game the weapons the environments are top notch on many levels. The fighting system is very familiar to what was the first DMC. But now we have all the added weapons and this makes it even more fun to play in my opinion. Variety has been pushed into combat. The new story is more forthcoming and clean than that of the old story.
I would recommend this game to fanboys and newcomers alike.
Just as good as any Devil May Cry gameDragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | See all DragosLoL's reviews »
DMC is a revamp of the Devil May Cry series and does a amazing job. A lot of people complain that DMC "isn't" a Devil May Cry but don't let that bother you. If you hack n slash and killing demons, you'll definitely enjoy this. The story dives a bit deeper into dante's past than the previous games and gives him a more "human" view on things. There is a vast variety enemies available to kill and the bosses are extremely enjoyable. Each boss fight forces you to use the tools you unlocked for your demon blade and make you learn to combo them. The only drawback I have to the game is that the game is a bit "too short" in my opinion. But it makes up with DLC content, vergil's fall and Bloodly Palace, which is actually free. If you enjoy hack n slash, then you'll definitely like DMC even if you are a die hard Devil May Cry fan.

After DMC 4, Capcom decided to try a different approach to their series, so they scrapped all anime design and introduced a whole new Dante. At first, it doesn't seem a very inspired move, but the game is a very good one indeed. The level environments are varied and some are very nicely designed- you'll get some very artsy renditions of limbo. Some of the monsters look pretty cool as well, as do Dante's moves. The music is great, the sound effects likewise, and the voice acting is surprisingly solid: Dante sounds different, but his cocky tone is still there, generating some really funny one liners. While the combat is entertaining, the quality, diversity and ease of executing various moves is not as great as it previously was in Devil May Cry 4. The story is predictable, but entertaining nevertheless, and it should take you around 15 hours to fully complete it, which is quite decent. In a nutshell, get this game, even if you're afraid that the new style won't suit it.
As good as the old onesEyeless42 | June 9, 2014 | See all Eyeless42's reviews »
The fighting mechanics are as good as always and that's pretty much all you need to know. The graphics are colorful and well done and the stages offer variety. The story is fun to follow. Still, the best part of any Devil May Cry is beating endless waves of enemies and this game delivers in that respect. You'll get used to the new Dante. I was skeptical at first but he grew on me.
One of the best games I've ever playedinsane11 | June 5, 2014 | See all insane11's reviews »
I've never been a big DMC fan before, I've only played DMC4 for a little, but didin't like it as much as that game. Anyway, this piece of art work is my favourite hack and slash game! The music the moves the combos all fit together and makes a totally badass and awesome game, which makes me play the whole story over and over again. Also It's a reboot of DMC so if you are new in this world, you didn't really miss anything from the previous games. There is a DLC that you are able to play as Dante's brother - Virgil and with his powers, skills and combos and it's really awesome. It's a must buy!
