This review is from: DmC: Devil May Cry (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
It is a genuine pity that so many DMC fans are boycotting this game because of Dante's new look, and the drop in frame-rate from 60 to 30 fps (on consoles).

Personally, I love this game! The gameplay, artwork, & soundtrack are all top notch. The drop in frame-rate has not really affected the gameplay at all-it still feels perfectly smooth and responsive to me. It all looks so stylish & the animation is, at times, breath-taking. I admire the art work so much, I've decided to order the companion art book for the game. The sound track consists of both licensed music (which is very industrial) & an original score. They complement the game perfectly & add to the gritty, edgy atmosphere to this reboot.

For the first time, we have a DMC with a coherent plot. The story is well written and the voice acting is first class. Some people may not like the political nature of the story-it has a swipe at corrupt/sleazy bankers, the media, corporations etc. Initially you may not like Dante's personality, but as the game progresses, so does his maturity & sense of responsibility. By the end of the game, I found him to be one of contemporary gaming's more interesting & likeable characters.

As for Dante's appearance, I prefer the new version. I felt that the old one looked like a camp magician or a (stereotyped) Broadway dance choreographer.

Overall, I love the job that Ninja Theory have done. I hope that they are commissioned for a follow up. They have laid down some great foundations, & so it would be a great pity if they were to stop at one title. There is so much potential for future releases in this franchise.

In the future, I would like to see a prequel where you play as Dante's father; either as DLC, or a standalone game. Another reviewer on here said how they'd like to fight alongside Dante's brother. That would be great as we know how much fun co-op games can be, esp local co-op.

For those that enjoyed DMC, check-out both Heavenly Sword & Enslaved: Journey to the West. Like DMC these titles have great stories, characters, art & sound design etc.
