Devil May Cry 5 comes out on the 8th of March, the reviews are out, and by all accounts it’s an absolute smash. Combining the series’ trademark precision combat with over the top action, Devil May Cry 5 is a worthy successor to the long running series.
That got me thinking about combat in games. It’s unfortunate that a lot of games which rely on combat are a little loose, a little flabby around the edges.
It’s time to end that. Here’s five game series that could really use the combat from Devil May Cry.
The Elder Scrolls
The Elder Scrolls games are masterpieces of world building, freedom, and adventure. What they don’t have though is incredibly tight combat.
Maybe it’s time to change that. Mix in a little Dragon May Cry, let me combo a draugr or get an S rank on mudcrabs.
Halo’s weapons all feel individual, distinct, and all have their own uses. But let’s face it, there’s only one weapon from Halo we all crave. The Energy Sword.
So why not combo that with the Devil May Cry combat system? The Covenant and the Flood are well prepared for your ranged weapon assault, but they might be less prepared for you windmill-kicking grunts into the sky.
Speaking of windmilling, the Skate series excels in this. Admittedly if you’re doing it, you’re probably doing it wrong. But that’s half the fun of the Skate series isn’t it?
So why not go a step further. On your skateboard you’re poised, elegant. Off it you’re a deadly whirlwind, reaping havoc on those evil skaters. You know the ones I mean. Those ones.
Everyone loves the Sims. You lovingly craft your idealised person, or yourself, plonk them down into a small house, and begin your journey of teaching them to live in this microcosm of reality.
Then you kill them by drowning them in a pool.
Maybe your Sim would stay alive a bit longer if they could punt other Sims into the Moon. Devil May Cry combat, that’s all I’m saying.
Honestly at this point it’s worth trying anything to fix the 3rd person Sonic games.
