It's a wild departure from the tone of the first four games. The combat feels different, the protagonist Dante feels different, and the game is generally presented in a way that greatly deviates from the way Devil May Cry has been traditionally presented in previous installments. To me, as a long time fan, it didn't feel much like a Devil May Cry game, and I feel that this should be pointed out right away.
With that said, DmC: Devil May Cry is an AWESOME game.
Developer Ninja Theory's previous titles, Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: An Odyssey to the West, were games that I really enjoyed from a narrative and game design standpoint, but could never really get past the clunky combat that I felt those games were bogged down by. In DmC, this has been eradicated, as developers from Capcom assisted Ninja Theory in designing the excellent combat system. Therefore, what we have here is one of the most visually creative, best-presented action games to come around in a long time. While the story is nothing special, it is presented incredibly well with some excellent cut scenes, animation, and vocal delivery. The level design in DmC is absolutely stellar, and easily the high point of the game. More so than most games I played this past generation, DmC found ways to completely surprise and thrill me throughout the entire experience, delivering astounding levels of creativity in single levels that many games can't achieve in an entire campaign.Read more ›
DMC5 surpassed my expectations enormously, but there's a few things that hamper it from achieving greatness as both an action game and especially as a Devil May Cry game.
The good: Combat's on par with other entries into the series, and you'll find yourself experimenting very freely with weapons and combos as you'd expect to do in a Devil May Cry. The revised controls and weapon system gives you access to no less variety than you'd have seen in previous games, but makes them much easier to wield. Hold one trigger to use one set of weapons, the other trigger to use the other set of weapons, no triggers to use the default sword. Dante being half-angel seems like a Mary Sue writing error, but it figures prominently into the game mechanics, with one set of weapons being angelic and the other being demonic. The presentation is exquisitely good, with a lot of great embellishments to camera work during combat and satisfying visual and sound effects. Also, Dante actually looks like he has blood. It doesn't sound like it should be impressive, but it is, if at the cost of framerate. I recommend the PC version of this game over the console versions, consequently.
Button inputs for special attacks are also simpler, favoring an input buffer instead of holding in one direction or another, and Dante's auto-targeting has been refined to the point that manually holding a lock-on button isn't necessary to pick a target -- at least, most of the time. Compared to the toggling system of previous games, it's an awful lot less demanding on your fingers and overall coordination to get into building combos.Read more ›
I will say this, if you don't compare it to the previous games, it's a fun distraction. But there are other games in the same genre that are much better written and have smarter gameplay.
