    Devil May Cry was the pioneer for character action games and despite being released 18 years ago, it still manages to stand tall among more contemporary counterparts. It certainly shows its age, most specifically in the dated platforming and at times jarring camera changes. Yet, when it comes down to pulling off combos and looking cool as hell, it hits the mark, still feeling fresh all these years later.

    Devil May Cry is an action-packed masterpiece that mostly stands the test of time. Now that you can play it on-the-go, fans and newcomers alike should definitely check it out.

    Devil May Cry’s appearance on Switch should be regarded as an essential installment of modern gaming history. Its genesis in Resident Evil, unconscious evolution of the beat ’em up genre, and conception of stylish-action showcase the fierce innovation demonstrated by the PlayStation 2 in 2001. In 2019, the primordial Devil May Cry may be more frustrating than fun, but what it lacks in comfort it corrects with prestige.

    Much like Onimusha: Warlords before it, Devil May Cry preserves all the things that made it great in 2001, while systematically crystallising all of its faults. It’s a shame it wasn’t given the remake treatment gifted to Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero – or even have some form of ‘remastering’ to optimise it for Nintendo Switch – but for fans of the series who hold fond memories of slaying demons and attaining that elusive ‘S’ rank, you can now enjoy Dante’s inaugural adventure in handheld form.

    You can certainly buy Devil May Cry on Switch if you want to discover this piece of history. It’s still one of the best episod of the series, even if the camera is outdated and the visuals aren’t that fresh.

    Devil May Cry is an eighteen-year old classic -with all its mechanisms intact- that tries to allure a new audience; one that is for playing on the go. It does its best to come up to modern times, but ultimately fails to provide a solid reason for a purchase. The lack of any elements that could have improved or expanded the original version, plus the lack of the other two games that come together as an HD collection in other platforms can only make us skeptical regarding its existence.

    Although it has its shortcomings and a bit of an archaic framework, it’s even more interesting to explore now simply due to how much the series has changed since its inception.

Le jeu peut paraîtreLe portage Switch du premier Devil May Cry est adapté directement du remake HD déjà sorti sur PC et consoles. Le jeu peut paraître visuellement basique et terne mais il est fluide et toujours aussi fun. Véritable monument qui est devenu une des licences phares de Capcom, il est intéressant de se replonger dans les mécaniques de Devil May Cry 1, pour la première fois en mode console portable. Il est étonnant d’ailleurs de se rendre compte à quel point Bayonetta a pu s’inspirer de DMC 1. On regretta simplement de ne pas avoir bénéficié de l’ensemble HD des 3 premiers jeux, comme c’est le cas sur les autres consoles. C’est peut être dans les plans de Capcom pour plus tard, on le souhaite vivement! Expand
