    Dropping the puzzles in favor of a more streamlined, combat focused experience is another good change, and really helps the game have more of a laser focus. With plenty of content to keep you busy, as well as both free and paid DLC in the works, Devil May Cry 5 is well worth your time, and hard earned dollars.

    Devil May Cry V is the best entry in the series and one of the best character action games ever released. In addition to its excellent combat mechanics and level design, which expand greatly on the elements introduced in past games, the story and characters had never before received such focus in Devil May Cry. The game may be lacking in extra content such as the fan-favorite Bloody Palace mode at launch, but don't let this small flaw prevent you from getting what will surely be one of the 2019 Game of the Year contenders.

    Devil May Cry 5 is yet another exquisite game from Capcom. True to its roots, but also with attractive innovations, surprisingly gorgeous and fun, it is probably the ideal sequel to a classic action series.

    Three great characters and a beautiful, fluid combat system make this a must-buy for hack-and-slash fans.

    Without being perfect, especially with respect to the camera handling and lock system, Devil May Cry 5 is an amazing action game with strong playable characters and a great sense of challenge and polish.

    DMC 5 takes the best from previous titles, like over the top action and nuanced battle system, adds a great new character and makes the best use of modern technologies. [Issue#236, p.20]

    Devil May Cry 5 might not be the best entry in the series, but it's a good time with great gameplay, in spite of the middling story and bland art direction.

    It is very, VERY rare that a game is able to out shine it's predecessors, especially a game like DMC which has a game base spanning back toIt is very, VERY rare that a game is able to out shine it's predecessors, especially a game like DMC which has a game base spanning back to the PS2 days, but this in my opinion is the best in the series so far. The combat is slick, the story is great, Dante is exactly how you expect Dante to be years after DMC 3/4, there is just no aspect of the game that hasn't been improved on.

    Capcom are doing a great job at the moment with both their remakes (Resi 2) and new games (this). The game is very well optimised on PC, no signs of a generic "PC port" and actually feels like they put in effort in for the PC community.

    Fans of the series will feel right at home, new players may be a little confused at first, but I am sure YouTube by now has a "everything you need to know before playing DMC5" or something to catch you right up.

    All in all I highly recommend the game to anyone who is a fan of the genre, this is definitely going to be a GOTY contender for 2019.

    I waited this game 11 years. When DMC4 released, i was still a kid. And now, i am that same kid, again.

    This game is amazing. Combat is smooth and challenging on higher difficulties. Story is simple, but so good and easy to follow, even for newcomers. Graphics are beautiful and RE Engine runs like a dream on pc and even on consoles.

    Now. All you who said, that this game is short and easy. No, you have no idea, how DMC-games are meant to play. You finish the game, and then you play on higher difficulty. More gameplay, more rewards and more challenge.

    I already have 56 hours played, on this game. And i'm not even finished this totally. I have still much to do.

    For short words. This game, is a must buy for everyone.

    DMC5 is a unapologetic love letter to action games that marks a return of the classic action genre franchise to the spotlight, delivering aDMC5 is a unapologetic love letter to action games that marks a return of the classic action genre franchise to the spotlight, delivering a thrilling, action packed and emotional sequel to the franchise many thought was doomed to ostracism.

    Devil May Cry has always been a franchise plagued by mismanagement with as many ups such as DMC3 and DMC1 and downs like DMC4 and DMC2, the root of the problem being Capcoms troubling management issues such as Hideaki Itsuno having to help salvage DMC2 four months before release, DMC4 terrible asset flips to overshadow yet another deadline issues all while having no concrete idea of the future plans for the franchise that after DMC1 could have reached for the skies and yet came to a failed reboot in 2013.

    None of the issues above plagues DMC5 which makes it the first Devil may cry game in decades to have a clear concise, emotional story with hilarious scenes, over the top action, emotional cutscenes all while still keeping the flamboyish corky style that made the series popular and iconic, all of this coupled with an incredible throwback gameplay that builds upon DMC4 and DMC3 while still inovating and adding tons of gameplay dynamics makes DMC5 the Ultimate Devil May Cry experience and yet another Capcom sucess in recent years

    This is how you should make a game best game i have played in a long while

    Amazing Graphics, Soundtrack & Story

    Gameplay is just as brilliant I have never played earlier instalments.
    players get to play as three characters: Nero, V and of course Dante. Each of them has their own unique powers i like to play v the most myself.

    it is amazing, i really enjoyed it 9/10.
