    The game's sense of cool distilled from gallows humor, fantastical horror, wildly imaginative nightmare landscapes, and a bloody mean streak a mile wide.

    Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition is a rare case where the developer goes back and fixes those things, big and small. Whether you’re a newcomer or a devoted fan, this is a remaster done right.

    Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition may not improve much in the looks department but the gameplay remains as great as it was last gen (Vergil’s Downfall notwithstanding). If you haven’t played it yet then you absolutely should do so.

    Apart from the visual upgrade, it offers new content and polished gameplay. It still is a great game, and this is the best way to play it.

    Despite the incredibly frustrating platforming, it's impossible to deny that this really is the Definitive Edition of a classic melee-action title. Newbies can enjoy the slickest version on the market, packed with all the DLC. Returning hardcore fans will find a serious challenge in the extra difficulties and hardcore modifiers.

    DmC might have been better received had it been built under a different name - at the very least it might have escaped some scrutiny from fans of the original games. That being said, what DmC does provide works well and this latest iteration is the best reason to give the game a chance if you have not yet done so.

I fought it will be like Crytek bulls--t (because the description the game was focusing about graphics too much 1080p 60fps +Crystal Dynamic texture and s--t) It's not really important for the game to run 60fps because it F--KING BULLS--T! Gameplay is the most important aspect... The story got a little weird at first (but who the f--k cares?) Because, the Capcom DmC 1,2,3,4 was really confusing about this arroant sonofab--ch Dante just come in, and say, "Hi guys, ur a demon right? Mind if cut your goddamn bones?". Yeah, it's fun you kill alot of demon everyday... :) Expand

    WOW this game is incredible! The dreamy worlds, badass enemies, epic comabt and the whole feel of the game really sucked me in. Never played aWOW this game is incredible! The dreamy worlds, badass enemies, epic comabt and the whole feel of the game really sucked me in. Never played a DMC before and glad i didn't because the fluid 60fps makes this so much better!
    Only miniscule minus I have is the rock music in combat. Although I do like the music I feel it pulls me a little bit out of the excitement and atmoshpere this game delivers. It's still a solid 10 for me.

    A moderately deep character action game packed with content and game-play options make this a major improvement over the initial release ofA moderately deep character action game packed with content and game-play options make this a major improvement over the initial release of DmC: Devil May Cry. This definitive edition addresses all of the game-play related issues present in the initial release, and several of the story related ones as well. Almost all modes of the main game and the sequel DLC have been re-balanced, and visually touched up. The game runs at a steady 60 frames per second, and the color-coded enemy to weapon system has been altered to allow greater combat freedom. The addition of new game modes, unlockable costumes, and a much needed manual lock-on system that can be set to either HOLD or TOGGLE have managed to balance this title out incredibly well. As for the story, which is heavy with snark and passive aggressiveness, one can find themselves beginning to enjoy the characters, if given time. Dante, the protagonist starts out as a completely unlikable character, but ends up becoming more heroic and cleans up well by the time the game ends, while Vergil and Kat, the supporting characters, also go through a lot of changes too. Vergil's post-game story, entitled Vergil's Downfall, explores his morals and develops him into a more interesting character than he starts out as, as well. In conclusion; While not as deep as the previous Devil May Cry franchise's signature combat, the systems presented here are still deep and allow for experimentation, while the additional content adds a lot of replayability to the game, and the reworkings of the combat system make this much more enjoyable than the original DmC: Devil May Cry, and a much more solid action game.

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