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.

20% spiderman + 20%portal + 50% hack'n slash + 10% capcom = DmC the gameplay is cool , but the story isn't but i like its idea a little bit , this is the easiest DMC game i've ever played , i've finished it in 9 hours ( nephilim mode ) .. they removed the style changing system and replaced it with a demon and angel mode which gives options to new combos . the secret missions are now accessible just from the main menu , you just need to visit them in-level for the first time and they are repetetive , they just differ in the level/atmosphere/ennemies unlike the secret missions in the original games , this is one of the reasons why i think its the easiest devil may cry game .... the graphics are beautiful , the soundtrack fits with its scene/moment ingame , and it also offers a new mode : the training mode , where you can train combos in it without entering a mission , also , i liked the idea about letting you : trying a move before upgrading/buying it from the shop , so see if you like/dislike it and to avoid some cases like if you find it difficult to be inputed :) 7.5/10
I don't know why this game got the slack it did. Sure, it's by far the most accessible of the DMC games but this is not a bad thing. The 'styles' system of 3 and 4 (haven't played much if any of 1 and 2) was occasionally tricky to work with, but the angel and demon modes of this game make sense and allow for easy, near-infinite combos once you get the hang of it. But for gods sake, you MUST play with a controller. Handling Dante with a mouse and keyboard is just truthfully nice.
I was one of the fans that pissed about out new Dante. But when I tried it, I changed my mind: game is badass, and I loved that new guy. Game rocks, music is awesome. Bosses are epic, hope new game come!
The art direction and level design in this game is fantastic. However the combat is very shallow and doesn't allow for much if any experimentation for combos. Overall it's a fun little experience of a game just not a very good Devil May Cry game and I'd recommend you check it out.
I don't think this game deserved all the hate that came out for it when it was first previewed and released. I think since time has passed now people are able to see what the game is for, rather than what they expected it to be. The new Dante has a new attitude that fits with his style, and I find the humor to be on point. The combat is just as good as any of the previous games, and the ability to switch quickly and easily between the different weapons to add in the combos makes it more fluid. The only thing I didn't particularly like about it is the Devil's Trigger and the change they made. When initiating Devil's Trigger, it launches Dante and all the nearby enemies into the air. The feels like it eliminates the power of the Devil's Trigger, and makes it more difficult to be able to eliminate the enemies when you're struggling. Overall, I highly recommend this game. I like the different abilities you gain as well as the unfolding story. The gameplay is tight and feels great, as well.
