3.0 out of 5 stars DmC
DmC is a good game on your first playthrough but it gets repetitive really fast. What I liked about the game is that there are lots of really different weapons. What I disliked about the game is that the style system makes the combat really linear as you will need to use lots of different moves and most of those are really weak. Another thing I disliked about the game...

Many times was surprised by beatifull effects.
Some levels did not like too much, but in overall most of them are interesting and beatifull.

What I disliked about the game is that the style system makes the combat really linear as you will need to use lots of different moves and most of those are really weak. Another thing I disliked about the game that there were ugly environments, ugly monsters and ugly graphics. Overall, DmC is a great game on it's first playthrough but it gets repetitive on your second playthrough and eventually getting boring so I would only recommend this to die-hard devil may cry fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a ride!,
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: DmC (PS3) (Video Game)I feel that it is practically impossible to say a few words about this game
without commenting on the history of the franchise prior to the reboot and up until this point.
The difficulty setting as for what many "trolls" and nay-sayers seems to address is not at all relevant considering
the depth of variety this game has to offer. there is however a gap between the original baseline settings to the new ones.
It looks somewhat like this
These are the modes that are available to you from the very first time you boot up the game
Human (Very easy)
Devil Hunter (Easy)
And these will have to be unlocked
Son of Sparda (Hard)
Dante Must Die(Borders to "very hard")
And the two alternative difficulty settings which are more of a challenge based setting
Heaven or Hell (classic DMC setting where you get killed in one hit, but so does your enemies. Yes that includes bosses)
Hell or Hell (Interesting setting where your enemies will need as many hits as they would on Son of Sparda, but you will die from one hit)
So in case you have been wondering whether the negative reviews are telling the truth or just acting like cry-babies over the reboot they didn't ask for, They're wrong and misinforming you about what this game has to offer and what it doesn't.
There is plenty of challenging hours to be yelled and screamed at in this game, and even an arena mode where you can compete with other players on high scores.
Arena mode involves endless mixed enemy waves for you to slice up.
The new control scheme works VERY well with the action packed ranking system which remains strong and addictive.
My only complaint around this aspect of the game is that it seems a little too easy to achieve "SSS" scores, especially if you're fond of spamming "AOE" combos.
As for the Story: The Story for the first time ever implements a "real" setting where there is a world filled with people and a storysetting to back its credibility, unlike the original franchise where you were just told to go along with the idea of people walking around out there.
The demons and beasties will have to be fought in the in-between world known as "Limbo".
I specifically liked the way you enter the world of Limbo, where you get to observe the enviroment around you completely change and alter it self as you go about your business in there.
The character you will get to know as "Kat" will be your guide and gateway to this world which only people with special gifts and demons have the power to access and alter.
The downside to this new universe is that the Castlevania like feel the old universe had is pretty much gone, and that is putting it nicely.
And as for Dante himself! He can seem a bit like a brat much more than a badass, but I believe that has something to do with the sore fact that we had all of this forced down our throat, but for a reboot on such a massive scale, I will say that the now infamous studio called "Ninja Theory" has done a damn good job at staying true to the original recipe while avoiding to bring the hiccups from the previous universe along with it.
All in all a very entertaining and well made game, even the graphics surprised me as something that seemed to be standing out with an almost oil painting like setting to it.
I'd say that it is worth buying this game over rental since you will be surprised how much replayability this game has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible reboot of a well-loved series,
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: DmC (PS3) (Video Game)I'm not the biggest fan of reboots (in games or films), especially when they're not really needed as the originals were so good, so last year when I heard that this classic series was getting a "reimagining" I was a little worried. Dante appeared to now be some bratty teenager and long gone are the gothic backdrops that we've all grown to love.
Well after much umming and ahhing over when to get my soul destroyed by trying this new take on the series, I decided to give it a go...and I'm so glad I did!
Dante isn't as bratty as we were made to believe (there are a lot of reviews out there from fans who blatantly haven't played this game, describing Dante to be "emo") so I was pleasantly surprised by this fresh, witty character that I'm now seeing from a new point of view. The gameplay is as fun as ever, literally a button basher to get those SSS style scores, but it does still require a certain amount of skill to work through large groups of enemies, especially on the harder difficulty settings (I'm currently playing it on Dante Must Die difficulty - man, that is hard!!!). The cinematics are excellent, however some of the dialogue is a little too cheesy for my liking at times, and this game has some of the best visuals I have seen on the PS3 (in-game and during cut-scenes), such detail and vibrancy are too much to take in sometimes. The soundtrack is also very decent with a mix of heavy-bass dub-step and hard rock throughout the game, courtesy of Noisia and Combichrist.
I'm basically so glad I picked this game up, I can't praise it enough. Buy it now!

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but not DMC quality, not worth full price buy,
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: DmC (PS3) (Video Game)So is DmC the amazing game the press is trying to make it to be or the terrible, horrible game the fans are saying? Well its neither. Its a decent hack and slash game that fails to live up to the previous games quality. Design: DmC in game design is pretty much the classic hack and slash formula, follow a path, do some platforming, solve some puzzles, defeat a group of enemies, move on, power up using orbs, face bosses. While the game design is very standard, its the character design and overall look of the game that initially caused a lot of controversy and while some may like the new designs, its hard to argue they don't fit the series. Its not just the new Dante design but also the enemy and scenery designs that seem out of place leaving that Gothic looks of the original that fitted so well with the demonic teams to some random copy and paste ideas from other games and movies. Things seem torn between being western and "new", and trying to resemble a DMC game, and it fails on feeling like either. 7/10 Story: Without a doubt the worst part of the game. Previous DMC games had simple stories that follow a very anime approach to them. Leaving most of the story on the background and focusing more on a strong lead character that stereotyped the cool, confident, strong anime character that does what is right and loves a good challenge. it all worked great to produce amazing looking cutscenes with over the top moments that looked great, were funny and didn't take themselves very serious. The new DmC tries to alternate between serious and imitating the cool moments of the old series but fails miserably in both. Clearly the sense of cool of the witter and his understanding of the anime style of writing is terrible, and the final result were non interesting characters with the worst of all being Dante that comes as a Dick almost all the times with infantile swearing, a prick attitude and some of the worst writing in videogame history. The ending will literally make you trow objects against the screen (don't). 5/10 Gameplay: This might be the best thing about DmC and it should be what matters as DMC as always been about great fun gameplay right? Unfortunately while the gameplay as its fun moments its still a downgrade from what we got on the previous games. After just a few minutes of playing the fresh sensation will start to disappear as you start remembering DMC 4 and the problems start becoming evident. There is no lock on, and sometimes (a lot) you can't hit the enemy you want, suddenly you realize that directional input is not there and because of it Dante was less than half the quantity of combos he could perform on 4. You then see there is no taunt, that there is no style system and that the angelic and demonic weapons are just the strong and weak/range attacks from Heavenly Sword and they just seem pasted with no balance in the game. After a while you also realize the guns are broken and do almost no damage, that its too easy to get SSS ranks, that enemy AI is a joke and the only challenge comes from enemies that can only be hurt from a specific weapon and that the framerate doesn't even stay steady at 30 fps. The initial feel of quality is a delusion from not playing the old titles for a while as after playing DmC playing DMC 4, 3 or even 1 will feel like they were the sequels and the improved versions, with more depth, precision, fluidity, and challenge. 7/10 Graphics: This generation you expect that games look good and its not difficult to make them look good. DmC looks good, it as nicely detailed character models (weather you like them or not), it as nice interesting environments, and it can be appealing to look at. But again its when comparing it to previous entries that it falls apart. Putting footage of DMC 4 side by side with DmC its clear that DMC 4 had much sharper graphics, with more fluidity, more detail, and a bigger scale of things. It is a difference that is well masked from all the filters of DmC limbo world, but when things switch up to the real world footage the illusion falls apart and you see that while looking good it doesn't look great. 8/10 Sound: DmC again misses to understand DMC world and while retaining some metal themes it fails to have that epic gothic orchestra feel the previous games had and DMC had amazing soundtracks. the dubstep is a terrible terrible thing that will at least be saved by the option of turning the music off. 6/10 Lasting appeal: As all Ninja Theory games it is very short, last around 8 hours on the higher difficulty settings. Almost half what would take to finish DMC 3. While there are things you can only unlock through multiple plays the game is just too easy even in the higher difficulty levels making the weak challenge not worth the effort. Also you can't skip cutscenes meaning you have to listen to the terrible story all over again. DmC is a 6/10 or 7/10 (if your not a fan of the originals) game that gets a 3 due to the mistreating, decieving of fans and corruption of press reviews Collapse

5.0 out of 5 stars A Reboot True to its Orginal,
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: DmC (PS3) (Video Game)I have been a huge fan of the DMC games since 2001 and DMC1 and DMC3 being my favourite of the 4. When I heard about the reboot unlike many I was actually excited that the protagonist has changed as I believed the story could not progress any further than DMC4. However many complained about the appearance and the way the game appeared and I give full praise to the western developers for actually listening to the old fans and adding and amending for the final release.
I was also aware the original game developers from Capcom were involved which meant the game could not stray from its roots. The Game mostly reminds me of Devil May Cry 3, with its ambience, humour and game play.
I have played well over 10 hours of the game since release and believe I can give detailed review for those who are still sceptical on buying the game.
Story 8/10: I'll try not to spoil anything except which was already told on trailers. The story starts off very different from all the DMC's with a much futuristic era and financial based plot, the plot is very much like Devil May Cry 3 with the returning rebooted characters Mundus and Virgil. However each has a very different role compared to the previous games. Virgil and Dante are still twin brothers, however both an offspring of an Angel and a Demon unlike previously a Human and a Demon which I did prefer. The plot on the other side supports the birth type calling them a Nephilim a cross between an Angel and a Demon a form which can only kill a the demon king, with Mundus controlling the world by keeping everyone in debt, hence only Virgil and Dante are the only two that are able to stop him. By you (Dante) joining your brother's cause to stop the demons, you begin your journey trying to retrace your forgotten memories and bringing vengeance to Mundus.
Game play 9/10: A cross between DMC3 and DMC4; however in this game you are able to switch from one weapon to another and not breaking your combos. I really enjoyed playing the game and inventing random combos, especially on "TRAINING MODE" which I will mention soon.
The movement are quite fluid and chaining each combo gives a very satisfying feeling when you can avoid the enemy from hitting you and ending with a flawless and the returning of style SSS class combos.
Similar to DMC3 the red orbs you obtain per kills and destruction of environment are used to purchase health's and continues. White orbs which obtained from chaining combos and mission completion are automatically given on an upgrade bar; once the upgrade bar hits the end you obtain 1 skill point which is used on a variety of abilities for yourself and all your weapons. This time round you can freely use your skill points by selecting a move and if it doesn't seem beneficial and you noticed another skill you can remove it and re-use on another skill; this can be done in midgame near an altar or at mission selection; this gives a huge freedom to perfect your own play style.
Graphics 7/10: Some parts of the game are just jaw-dropping to see such detail from Limbo to normal, the water, the sky and the characters. However some parts of the game seems unfinished as you notice cars driving by looking like a square box with wheels, however this does not ruin the appearance overall or take you away from the ambience of the game, there are some small frame rate issues with slight pauses in game and sound. But yet again it does not ruin the gaming experience.
Other modes/Replay Ability 9/10: The thing that sets this game apart from the others are the added features which will keep bringing you back even after the game is completed, the fact you can replay any mission anytime once completed to gain more experience or to obtain every secret item in the game keeps u re-doing the missions.
You also have challenges which unlock art work, which are simply amazing to look at. You also have 7 difficulties ranging from Human (Easy) to Hell and Hell (Very Very Very Very Hard) if you consider the mode Nephilim as hard. You also have the "Training Mode" which allows you to use all the combos you have unlocked so you can generate your own chain of combos or to simply practice each move outside of story line. You also have skins and outfits which you can unlock by completing certain challenges and once you unlock a secret mission, just like normal missions you can replay them anytime form the main menu.
Lastly you have the leader boards which remind me of Resident Evil 5, you get ranked amongst the world on your total score which is determined by style points, completion time, collected items, deaths and item used along with the difficulty ranks. This keeps bringing you back trying to get that max score and SSS finishing rank so you can be top of leader boards amongst your friends or the world.
Conclusion 9/10: if I could I would give it 4.5/5 simply for the fact the slight frame rate issue but besides that the game is a refreshing reboot for a DMC fan like myself. I recommend to anyone that enjoyed DMC3 and wanted that feeling of challenge and satisfying combos to buy this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Demon Scum,
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: DmC (PS3) (Video Game)I just got this game lastnight and my wrists are in bits. I love this game just as much, if not more, then the previous games. Its a new game to me so i will naturally love it more for now. The one thing that i love about this game is that the sets are so trippy. There are a lot of "floating" platforms, which i really enjoy. There is something about jumping on a platform with nothing but air below you.
Dante is so funny and a total smartass, as always and we get to see him in his early years, even as a child, which is strange lol. Some die hard fans seem to be bitching about his new character but i really get such a laugh, more then before, with him. he has this wonderful F YOu attitude (yes the f word is used a lot in this game). He has plenty of slagging matches with all the bosses, who like to belittle his "whore" mother.
The bosses are not that hard at all i dont think, they have the attitude but they are very striaght forward to fight. some are very unusual, one in particular in the club section, which is ...just not right lol. The main enemies are quite hard at times when you are surrounded by different types that need different weapons to kill. some can only be hit with a certain weapon otherwise your sword will just bounce off them. there are a lot of different types of enemies to get to know and sometimes you get all of them at the same time lol
Kat is great and holds her cards close to her chest for the start of the game. Vergil is....i dont know really he is a bit flat or something but he was never a character that i payed attention to anyway so im not bothered by that. i just dont care about him lol sorry Vergil you are just no way near as cool as Dante.
You have new options in this game to control your environment, you can pull things out of the wall or use them to haul yourself through the air. i am having trouble with this because my stupid controler keeps veering to the left and i end up falling into the abyss lol. sometimes its hard to remember what button deos what but im sure i will get used to it.
This game is super fun and i would recommend it to any fan or gamer.
Go kill some demon scum.
