    The game really is just pure fun to play. On a high end PC, the game looks amazing in cut scenes and in the fast-paced combat. If you are an action game fan, you owe it to yourself to own DmC. You will not be disappointed.

    In what seems like commonplace lately, the PC version of DmC: Devil May Cry is the definitive version to play. While the mouse and keyboard controls aren't as precise as playing with a controller, the graphical upgrades and increase in frame rate make an already impressive game even more stunning.

    It may not be for hardcore fans of the series who are attuned to a particular playstyle, but for everyone else DmC: Devil May Cry is a highly accomplished character action game with a lot to love. It’s a different type of game than its predecessors but one that’s wholly successful at what it does, bringing relevancy back to the Devil May Cry name.

    Ninja Theory's last game is an amazing experience. This is the most complete version of DMC Devil May Cry, although there is no support for DirectX 11 and the game suffer from some minor technical issues.

    Whatever your thoughts on the redesigned Dante, this is a worthy entry in the series with a marvellous combat system at its core.

    Graphical flaws and overly linear gameplay aside, DmC is a solid first installment in the relaunched franchise.

    I played all DMC games before, I loved them all, personally I loved most first and third.
    At first I was very angry about reboot. Turned blind eye to a game and my opinion was full of hatred... But then... Well it's stupid compare reboot to a old games. I mean story and writting isn't best really, but gameplay, environments, concept is really nice. And music isn't very monotonic. To be fair it's something new in gaming, some fresh air.... It might not a some deep masterpiece, but it's a good game to have fun, and games supposed to be fun. Also I'm happy with good PC performance, nice to eye graphics and smooth gameplay.
    Thanks for creating something new, I'm sorry fot those closed minded guys who can't enjoy anything and must act like mindless fanatics. No one forces play it, and I saw a game as a new game. It is nothing like old one, but it's better than repeating old stuff.

    This game is just a mindless hack and slash romp with a terrific story. It could of used a better weapon upgrade system and maybe a few puzzles....

    If your a casual gamer like me you will enjoy this immensely... I only wish more games were like this.

    The only thing that bothered me was the protagonist: really annoying teen that never gets punished for his overconfidence. But that's just my personal taste, probably I was just a bit too old to relate to such character.

The moves and combo abilities are easy to understand are great to pull off. If you don't buy it new, i would recommend it a must have when the price comes down. Expand

    First of all game looks great, lots of colorful and well crafted environments and levels. Character design was spot on. Combat felt satisfying, with lots of combos to unlock and learn. Theres also light platforming involved. Wasnt the biggest fan of Dante himself tho, he semt way too cocky and teen age boyish. Then again im not familiar with the old Dante, so i cant be the judge. Story was ok for what it tried to do, but some of the dialogue was a hit and miss. Whole trapped in limbo setting and brain washing of masses themes were pretty cool. Some of the boss fights were nice, but some pretty annoying and too easy for me.

    This game has gotten a lot of hate from old school DmC fans, so im not sure if theyll enjoy it, but for those who havent played older games like me, i can easily reccomend it if youre looking for a good action packed hack and slash title.

    Thanks Capcom&Ninja Theory for forever tainting Devil May Cry.
    Because of this Devil May Cry 5 looks terrible.
