    DmC was one of the best action games of the last generation, and it’s remained fantastic two years later. It’s a better overall value now than it was then thanks to the addition of the DLC campaign and is still a must-play game.

    DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition proves that DmC is still brilliant. A slight resolution upgrade, frame rate boost and additional content make for a good value package, but if you've already played DmC on last-gen platforms, you may want to carefully consider re-purchasing this, despite it remaining deliciously devilish.

    DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition lives up to its name. It offers the already-solid hack and slash experience, plus all of its different add-ons, not to mention a few all-new enhancements that make the game a must-buy.

    Still the same loud, in-your-face action game that was released two years back, but much smoother and with tweaks and extras for returning fans.

    It’s a pity that the Definitive Edition falls short to the PC in terms of certain texture details. But other than that even two years after its premiere the rejuvenated Dante and his brother show that they still got it.

    You’re getting a buttery smooth gameplay experience, gorgeous graphics… but by and large this is the exact same game you played back on your 360 or PS3.

    That combat gets even more refined with a new lock-on mechanism. Suddenly, you can keep track of key enemies, elude with precision, achieve far greater accuracy with special moves. It all works fluidly and easily.

    The 60 fps makes a bigger difference than I previously thought! Nice & smooth!!! I changed the game to "hardcore mode" and I am no longerThe 60 fps makes a bigger difference than I previously thought! Nice & smooth!!! I changed the game to "hardcore mode" and I am no longer getting anymore SSS style points, thanks fanboys!! lol But seriously now that they have mostly fixed the combat, and added some difficulty levels I can see myself playing this for a while, and its a good thing too because the Xbone has no other hack n slash games out there to compete with this game.

    If only all the other 60 frame a second games played like this. I generally rank these games like god of wars. I didn't care for God of war.If only all the other 60 frame a second games played like this. I generally rank these games like god of wars. I didn't care for God of war. But it reminds me of dark siders. I like the music and the one off feel.
    The price was right and your missing out on one of the best games in prior years should you pass this up. They only had one copy on the Xbox one left at my store.

    An excellent game? It sure is! AA good reboot? More like a good side story than a reboot. DMC is a "reboot" of the famous Devil May Cry seriesAn excellent game? It sure is! AA good reboot? More like a good side story than a reboot. DMC is a "reboot" of the famous Devil May Cry series that was released back on the Playstation 2 which casts you as the new, but not so much improved, Dante who is being hunted down by Mundus, a Lex Luthor lookalike. Dante teams up with his brother Virgil and a human companion named Kat so that together, they can finally take down Mundus. It's a really good action game with unique weapons that are both holy and unholy, an upgrade system that actually has relevance and aren't for stupid stuff like shooting accuracy like in Watch Dogs. You also have some variations in enemy types like colored enemies in red and blue to signify which weapon hurts them and you also have somewhat disturbing boss fights. Playing this on the Xbox One feels pretty damn good. I can't speak for the other versions but I can assume that they must play pretty good too. Plus, you can even play with the classic Dante costumes from the original series and some other special costumes. There is one in the end that just color swaps the hair to white but thankfully, like I mentioned earlier, you have the real Dante costumes in this game. There is also a DLC side game that tells the story of happened to Virgil after the ending of this game which is I thoroughly enjoyed and took it for what it was like I did with DMC as a whole. Is it a worthy reboot of a beloved franchise? Not a chance in hell. However, if you take it as a side story, like how Dragonball GT is to the Dragonball Z universe, then I'm sure the enjoyment level will skyrocket for you. But be weary, the personality of Dante is somewhat cringeworthy at times but can be gotten used to when the story progresses. Overall, a well polished game with a minor jab that happens toward the beginning of the game that keeps me from giving this game a 10. Expand

    Nice mechanics, awesome combo system, variety of weapons, wonderful section designs are really nice hacks and slashes. It flows officially butNice mechanics, awesome combo system, variety of weapons, wonderful section designs are really nice hacks and slashes. It flows officially but the story is a bit dull and Dante .. I say that I do not say it but one of the bad sides of the game is that Dante is really an emo character. Luckily I have the "Classic Dante" costume and the "DMC1" costume I played the whole game with that costume. Apart from these, the bosses are really easy. I did not expect it to be so easy playing Devil in hunter mode. I did not have much trouble except Bom Barbas boss. Anyway, it's a not bad Devil May Cry game. Team Ninja did not do a bad job .. except Dante. Expand

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