    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.

    wow that was cool night! as you can guess i beat this game in one night and that was really cool and now i will tell you why i think so. butwow that was cool night! as you can guess i beat this game in one night and that was really cool and now i will tell you why i think so. but first let me continue my tradition so i will say this as usual: "never played previous game of the series =D". yeah with this part we are done so lets move forward.
    DEVIL MAY CRY 5 - is grate example of good representative of the slashers genre. extensive list of abilities, combos, weapons and what more you have possibility to play by 3 different character with their own abilities, combos, weapons and etc. We should also note great visual part of this game, now i talk not about polygon count or animations or ambient lights - its cool yeah, but i want to I want to highlight cool HUD in this game and menu by itself i really like reflections in pieces of glass where you can notice your character and world will be reflected as well. So what about story telling? it is well created as well, as tell before while you play the game you have ability to play by different characters with their own play style and own vision of story. you will enter different locations which somehow intertwined with each other. and all of this accompanied by cool music. so do i recommend this game ? yeah exactly especially if you slasher lover as me you will enjoyed as well.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. In many ways this game perfects what is great about DMC but it also takes a few steps back in some areas.

    The graphics has obviously received a technical boost since DMC4. The art style has changed noticeably as well. While I think I prefer the more stylized look of earlier games, the more realistic look did not bother me.

    This time around Dante & Nero has a huge arsenal of fun moves to explore. The new arm system adds a whole new dimension to Nero whom I found a tad lacking in the previous instalment, then of course the big surprise at the end further expands his capabilities.

    Dante as usual have several styles, devil arms and guns at his disposal making for a seemingly endless possibilities of combinations.

    V on the other hand contrasts the other two with a playstyle that conflicts with what makes DMC a fun brawler. Sadly for me, it was always a downer when a mission was "wasted" on him.

    The environments started out very detailed and immersive while running around the city. As the game progressed and you ventured through ruins and the tree it became visibly less polished and more repetitive. I found the areas from earlier installments much more memorable and iconic compared to the new ones.

    The bosses are ranging from okay to good. The most fun ones are were you are constantly engaged in fast close combat(ex: Cavaliere Angelo) while others have a repetitive gimmick to them(ex: Gilgamesh). We've yet seen a really solid boss fight since Credo(DMC4).

    Lastly, I am a bit disappointed with Vergil taking the big baddie throne once more. We already did that and we did it better in DMC3.

    Despite its shortcoming it's a really fun game, especially when you are battling(or styling on) hordes of demons!
