    The onslaught of things to shoot, crush or skewer demons with is always exhilarating, and done ample. justice by Capcom’s RE Engine

    DMC 5 is probably the best hack-and-slash game you’ll play all year, and definitely the most stylish.

    Hideaki Itsuno, my hat goes off to you and your crew. It's only March, and yet Devil May Cry 5 is another clear Game of the Year contender. The silly arguments on whether the original DMC or DmC is better can stop now, because DMC5 is here and it’s bloody brilliant. This is a proper return to form for the series, something that fans of both can get behind.

    Aside from my story gripes with Lady and Trish and my couple of issues with the Devil Breaker, Devil May Cry 5 practically exceeded my expectations. As a fan of the series all the way back to day one, and especially a fan of Devil May Cry 4 and my man dude Nero, Devil May Cry 5 is not only an excellent character action game. It’s also a mostly satisfying end to the story. I’m sure there’s more Devil May Cry to be had from here, but the story that started all the way back 2001 finally feels like a complete work, and that’s a rare treat.

    A classic reborn in wonderful style. Capcom's hot streak continues apace. [Issue#331, p.106]

    Devil May Cry 5 is exactly what we’ve come to expect of the series. In fact, if anything it feels like the developers were that terrified of repeating the response to Ninja Theory’s DMC, that they’ve gone overboard on being traditional. But then, with such a slick, enjoyable combat system, and all the witty banter that you could ever want in a game, DMC 5 is a fine way to bring the series roaring back after a decade in limbo.

    For everything Devil May Cry 5 does right, it does something wrong. The good graphics, the fantastic music and the new gameplay ideas are watered down by the weak, uninteresting story and its repetitive experience that will leave the fans with a mediocre experience.

    Dentro del hack and slash es lo mejor que ha salido en años. 3 personajes totalmente distintos uno del otro, lo que le da una variedadDentro del hack and slash es lo mejor que ha salido en años. 3 personajes totalmente distintos uno del otro, lo que le da una variedad increíble. Una historia atrapante; los personajes femeninos, especialmente Nico están muy bien. Buenos gráficos y las payasadas de los personajes masculinos son la guinda de la torta. Un DMC como debe ser de toda la vida. Expand

    Played it on the Xbox One X. Absolutely love the game. Currently going through it again on "SON OF SPARDA" difficulty. The only reason it isPlayed it on the Xbox One X. Absolutely love the game. Currently going through it again on "SON OF SPARDA" difficulty. The only reason it is a 9 and not a 10 is that I personally do not like the combat gameplay when playing as V. Thankfully there is only about 4-5 missions where you play as him. Other than that, it is great! Hopefully, we get to play as Vergil with a DLC. MAKE IT HAPPEN PLEASE!! Expand
