    When one rival put on weight, grew a bushy beard and decided to raise his son in the Northern bewilderness, the other chose a pair of stylish high-heels a couple sizes too small and the third now only appears to smash some oversized ta-tas, Devil May Cry 5 is proving that it is too early to put hack'n slash games out of commission. It's a gorgeous, glorious game of great current interest. A crown jewel from Capcom's most skilled goldsmiths.

    Devil May Cry 5 is one of the greatest masterpieces of the action game genre. I can barely imagine any other games would be qualified enough to compare before Bayonetta 3.

    Devil May Cry 5 marks the return of an historic franchise, dictating the canons of what should be a great action game, even after many years of silence.

    Devil May Cry 5 is an excellent action game. It's an even better Devil May Cry, perhaps the best the series has seen just yet. It's aesthetically pleasing in ways I never thought possible for the series, and chock-full of love for the fans, oozing out of every pore.

    While it is annoying that Bloody Palace mode is not available day one, it is coming as a free update on April 1st. Capcom has proved this gen that they are truly the best at 3D action games. They took some bold risks with the style and realistic flavour, and it pays off by taking on this new look that has never been seen before in any videogame. Even spectators are going to be extremely entertained by the spectacle that it Devil May Cry 5. Everything feels so fresh, and the advancements in the controls and fluidity in animation makes playing this refined masterpiece so hard to put down.

    Devil May Cry 5 has some real flaws, but the awesome gameplay, underlined by its lovely graphics, and the fan-service that's displayed all around, makes it one of the great games of 2019. A must-have for beat'em all fans.

    Devil May Cry 5’s risk-averse approach grounds it as other games in the genre are reaching for the sky.

This game is fantastic. I started to play in DMC games 3 months before release of DMC 5, so feeling of nostalgia won’t stir. The game completely justified my expectations and I enjoyed playing it. I can say this game as good as DMC 3. I guess this game has the highest chances to become action of the year. But my first impression after completing the first playthrough was just indescribable. I love the game both for story and combat, because this two factors can’t be reviewed separately. I don’t know how does it work, however when you play for some character in DMC you start to understand him a bit and start to sympathize him. This is amazing integration of both story and gameplay and the most interesting thing is that you start to enjoy game more and more as you play longer. This game is just good. Very good. Expand

    Aside from a lack of level variety I don't really have any complaints.
    It's probably the most enjoyable dmc since the original.

    It's probably the most enjoyable dmc since the original.
    All three characters feel very different and are so much fun to play, especially Dante.
    Visually it's stunning and while the story wasn't incredible it was quite enjoyable.
    So far it's one of the best games of 2019 and i'd recommend it to anyone who thinks they might enjoy it.

It's fun as hell it's fast paced and it looks amazing on PS4 PRO 4k TV. Story is what is expected of DMC stories and voice acting is great. Capcom has really strong opening for this year with RE2 and DMC5 and really gives the company it's credibility back with a PUNCH! Love the series love the DMC5 and will recommend it for everyone who loves good old Hack'n'Slash games with decent challenge! 9/10 Expand

    -Load times can be long and obstrusive
    -Gameplay can grate over longer sessions of play

    I'm not the biggest DMC fan but this game is just phenomenal. It's the closest to playing a real-time CGI film if have experienced in quite some time. CAPCOM are back! My interest in Japanese releases has waned over recent years of poor quality AAA releases (mainly MGSV, FFXV) so it is a great pleasure to play yet another capcom AAA release that is of such exceptional quality technically and gameplay wise as DMC5. I cannot wait to see what CAPCOM can bring to the next generation of console hardware going ahead but I only wish they could branch out the IP to include JRP. I can only imagine they have the chops to not only revitalise the genre but also bring their RE-Engine to create something of a spectacle. Seminal stuff.
