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.
excellent reboot .... Dante is different, but well doneicnivadodranoel | Feb. 17, 2014 | See all icnivadodranoel's reviews »
Excellent level design. Good replayability. Game well optimized. The soundtrack is amazing. The game features many difficulties, for everyone
Shallow storyline, even if for an action game is not a problem. Gameplay is well done, but it adds nothing Compared to other titles.
Primary mission ends in 12 hours, I personally appreciate values less than 20 hours but for some players Could be a few.
I recommend a controller to play
There are unfortunately few bosses.
Ninja Theory delivers yet again!!MechaYakuza | Feb. 4, 2014 | See all MechaYakuza's reviews »
Developer Ninja Theory has a special place in my heart after the two amazing story driven action games they made with master mo-cap actor Andy Serkis, Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: Journey to the West. I had played each Devil May Cry title but they had never really wowed me the way they had others during the PS2 era. So going into this as a Ninja Theory fan and not a Devil May Cry fan definitely gave me different expectations than some players. I wanted an amazing story with amazing mo-caped cutscenes, and I wanted fun combat and platforming. They delivered in spades in all areas. While I can't say if DmC lives up to the legacy of Dantes earlier adventures, I can say that I personally found this latest outing to be far more enjoyable than the last four games. No frustrating puzzles, the world didn't feel strangely empty and the story was far more compelling. Just a really fun (and darkly funny) cinematic action game.
A fantastic gameRaazak | Jan. 30, 2014 | See all Raazak's reviews »
Ok, I'm a huge fan of the Devil May Cry series, and I was a little disappointed when I found out that they changed the main character, but... This game is fantastic. The soundtrack is amazing, the gameplay is awesome, the art-style is phenomenal (the guys at Ninja Theory know what they're doing) and the storyline is decent. It's an underrated game, one of the best hack'n'slash on PC. The port is really good, but I'd honestly recommend a controller for this.
A refined experienceLeofwine | Jan. 28, 2014 | See all Leofwine's reviews »
The devil seldom cries. Although, this time tears will be shed. Not because of horrendous gameplay nor terrible story, but because of impeccable artistic design. Coupled with slick combat and an energetic soundtrack, we've got something worthwhile.
Developer Ninja Theory's forte has always been design. Whether it's character design or environmental design they excel at what they do. They utilize colour and imaginative concepts with a passion that shows in the final product. Thanks to their trademark artistic design they have revived a stale and pale franchise. DmC feels vibrant, flowing and fresh.
The gameplay is smooth and refined. While also keeping the unique aspects from the previous iterations. Everything you've come to expect from a DmC game is present here. To put it simple, get in there and devastate your enemies with ruthless combos in style.
As a side note the soundtrack deserves a special mention. It suits the setting and complements the action, contributing to the game's unique style and tone.
Sadly, not everything is fine and dandy. The story is simple and it won't leave a lasting impression. Despite the lightweight and predictable plot, it's enough to keep you going. Also, protagonist Dante will definitely keep you smiling throughout the journey with his banter.
Clearly there are some faults and there's always room for improvement, but DmC offers an enjoyable ride. Long time fans and newcomers alike, rejoice, because this is an action game for all of you. Take a break from reality and delve into this demonic, twisted yet beautiful universe.

As someone who isn't particularly fond of Hack n Slash games, this one is a blast! The difficulty curve feels just right, and you feel so cool! I was a fan of previous DMC games, and I wholeheartedly don't understand the hate. Besides new Dante, its not only just like the other ones, I like it more than 2 and 4! Definitely an excellent purchase, and a great port!
