    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.

    Comentario: O jogo é divertidissimo e surpreende varias vezes. Até me lembrou DragonBall pelo fato de que o tempo todo alguem fica mais forte pra deter o outro hauhauhahu
    A Jogabilidade é interessante, porém inferior ao DMC. O fator replay é bom, mas apenas pra quem realmente gostou da jogabilidade.

    RE Engine strikes again, mixing incredible visuals with flawless performance. The visuals, performance, gameplay and audio were all great, theRE Engine strikes again, mixing incredible visuals with flawless performance. The visuals, performance, gameplay and audio were all great, the only real negative were the characters. I found V insufferable and Nico very annoying, her accent and personality just grated on me. Lady and Trish barely did anything other than get naked and get slapped around off camera so added very little. Dante and Nero were the highlights as you'd expect. Overall the game is extremely well polished and a lot of fun to play, the story and character design are the only things pulling the score down for me. Expand
