DmC Devil May Cry is a reboot of the Devil May Cry series, featuring a different Dante in an all new world and storyline. Dante’s design is so different from his original one that many fans were vocal about their disappointment. Developed by Ninja Theory, the game was also at the center of debate when developers stated that the game would run at a constant 30 FPS, instead of 60 FPS: fearing that the game would lose something that makes the series unique, fans were even more vocal than before. The release of a playable demo has shown, however, that the game has all the right qualities to be a great title, capturing the Devil May Cry spirit and improving greatly on the formula.
Today, the first review of the game has surfaced, thanks to Swedish magazine Level, awarding the game with a 9/10 score: the game sports great level design, integrating fighting sequences with platforming and exploration moments and the transforming stages are great to look at; the story, while still being somewhat over the top, is judged as being way more serious than in the past. Controls are not only just like previous Devil May Cry games, but even better than before. The review ends by stating that Ninja Theory has done an extremely good job, combining the typical Devil may Cry formula with more modern action adventure game features.
Dmc Devil May Cry will be available on January 15th for Ps3 and Xbox 360: a Pc version will be released ten days later, on January 25.
