    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.

Each character has enough depth to fill a game by themselves, the story does exactly what it needs to, the twists and turns keep you on edge and the combat sets a new benchmark for action games as a whole. Capcom has made a masterclass in stylish combat gaming here, and there’s enough content to keep players happy — even if it takes another 11 years for a sequel. Expand

    If you're a fan of games in general this is worth picking up, this is the only game ever that I call a MASTERPIECE.

    This game is absolutely badass. I really only have 2 complaints with the game. Using rb to lock on to enemies is fine, but switching targetsThis game is absolutely badass. I really only have 2 complaints with the game. Using rb to lock on to enemies is fine, but switching targets seemed to be a big issue all game. Combos are difficult and must be timed perfectly, and sometimes just fail to work. However switching between 3 characters and remembering the best combos was my only other problem. Nero and Dante are fairly easy to play, and have kickass moves and weapons you can upgrade. V is much more difficult since you have to controls 3 followers, and make sure he doesn't get hit. Also he is boring as hell to play as.

    IDK why I started talking about the things I didn't like because I beat this game in 3 days it was so addicting. If you are a fan of hack n slash games, with cool combos, and weapon upgrades this game is for you. Story is ok, and has a cool ending. Graphics are some of the best I've seen on the current generation of console.
