85 Metascore at the moment.

EGM 95
DmC is everything a reboot should be-confident, thoughtful, and brazenly unafraid to sacrifice a few sacred cows along the way. For all the backlash they've had to face, developer Ninja Theory has delivered the most polished, refreshing, and memorable hack-and-slash experience in recent memory.

Game Informer 90
Ninja Theory stays faithful to the heart and soul of the series with this reimagining - and that's what matters.

Destructoid 90
A beautiful, bold, and supremely enjoyable videogame in its own right. It deserves to be praised...Action games may come deeper and harder than this, but few are as pleasurable.

IGN 89
DmC hurls Dante into a newer, better world, complete with a glorious combat system and enough style to make old Dante proud...This is digital action at its finest, steeped in the blood of angels, spiced with gunpowder, and garnished with a middle finger.

Edge Magazine 80
This is the best entry in its genre since Bayonetta, and might just be the best game Ninja Theory has made to date.

GameSpot 80
DmC succeeds both in its story and in its brilliant combat, and it looks the business too, despite a few minor glitches and the more colour-soaked levels looking like they've spent a little too much time in an Instagram filter.

Eurogamer 80
Ninja Theory has absolutely nailed the leading man and the combat system - by far the most important things - and DmC is clearly a labour of love, a tribute as well as a new beginning.

I don't know. The demo didn't leave much to desire and the main character looks like Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Wow, I'm surprised at how many people actually like Dante and the story. I figured the gameplay would sell this game, but Dante and the terrible writing are keeping me far, far away from DmC.

Heh, I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum. Gameplay alone is making me hold off for now. I still haven't done a second playthrough of the demo with tweaked controls as I had intended, though.

Every time I see DMC I think of the Back to the Future's DeLorean.

The intarwebz are rife with conspiracy theories that all the high scores were bought and paid for. People seriously need medication.

Check out Sess's review posted below your post. Pretty much rips it apart for it's terrible story and characters but says the gameplay (particularly in the first half) is good.

Well 8.9GN's score has a 9 in it, AND it rounds up to 9...

I don't see what the big deal about the "new" Dante is. People aren't pissing and moaning about the "new" Lara Croft. Personally I find the new Dante to be more, dare I say, realistic and less stupid looking than the white haired one.

It's not a "new" Lara Croft, it's her origin story.

That's what I'm thinking too. I might pick it up for $15 sometime in the future. The gameplay is still fun. Chocking down that horrible dialog? Not so much.

I have to agree. I just played the Demo today, and while the combat is quite fun, the Dialog, and writing is filled with so much Garbage, I think it would be better to log onto Xbox live and listen to the 12 year olds swear, they may swear less than this game.

EDIT: I'm quite glad there was a demo at least, I may have bought it, but I won't now. Saved me 60$ :3

Yes, because Devil May Cry is all about realism.

I played the demo for DmC several times, and while the combat is pretty good, I really think the rest of it is awful. I wouldn't play a free copy of this game.

I have no interest in buying this game but I expected nothing less from Ninja Theory, now go make something new!

I loved the demo. I thought the combat was awesome and I loved the look of the game. I will be picking this one up sometime soon.

You're right. The main character should really look like John Rhys Davies.

All DMC games have horrible dialog. I chalk that up to being from Japan...... I was put off by the unneeded profanity myself in the demo.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 14, 2013 7:11:38 AM PST
In the games defense I don't think story was ever their aspiration. The game is more of a guilty pleasure if anything else (judging from the demo) and I think the exciting thing is that a lot of people are praising the controls and combat of a Ninja Theory game. Hopefully that will bleed into one of their well written games that people go on about.

Something like an Enslaved with much refined mechanics would be something a lot of people would want.

Benpachi says:
Yeah, old DMC was campy B movie dialogue. New DMC is over acting George Lucas dialogue with unnecessary cursing.

That's because Capcom handled that part, haha.
