    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.

    When i heard there would be 3 playable protagonist's i was a bit worried but unlike DMC4 where Dante's half of the game felt likeWhen i heard there would be 3 playable protagonist's i was a bit worried but unlike DMC4 where Dante's half of the game felt like backtracking DMC5 is three different perspectives working towards the same goal and each with there own style of game play. the game is full of fun references for long time fans of the franchise including a cameo voice of a character Patty Lowell who was previously exclusive to the anime Series Brought a smile to my face. If i had to pick out a flaw its that some of the story leading up to DMC5 is only found in the Devil May Cry 5: Before the Nightmare Novel and while the game certainly stands on its own knowing you're not getting 100% of the story from the game is a bit of a downside.

    All in All i give this game an SSS
    I've had a blast playing the game

    As a long time fan of Devil May Cry series, I was ecstatic when Devil May Cry 5 was announced as it meant a return to form for the franchise.As a long time fan of Devil May Cry series, I was ecstatic when Devil May Cry 5 was announced as it meant a return to form for the franchise. However, since Gamespot revealed that Crapcom was adding microtransactions (yes I know they can be easily ignored), I was utterly disgusted by the fact that a largely single-player $60 game (especially a spectacle fighter/character action game like this one) was going to have microtransactions. If you must buy this game, get it used as Crapcom doesn’t deserve your money, since they think you don’t deserve their respect. Expand
