Detailing Dante's early years and set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC Devil May Cry will retain the stylish action, fluid combat and self-assured protagonist that have defined the iconic series but inject a more brutal and visceral edge. The Dante of DmC is a young man who has no respect for authority or society in general. Dante knows that he is not human, but also that he is not like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast. He is now discovering and coming to terms with what it means to be the child of a demon and an angel. This split personality has a real impact on gameplay with Dante being able to call upon angel and demon abilities at will, transforming his Rebellion sword on the fly to dramatically affect both combat and movement. For DmC Capcom has teamed up with UK development studio, Ninja Theory, renown for delivering action titles with compelling characters and narrative coupled with high production values. The combination of Ninja Theory's expertise and Capcom's unrivalled heritage in producing combat focused action titles will ensure that this latest addition to the multi-million selling series will remain true to the Devil May Cry DNA so cherished by the fans, while bringing a new level of cinematic quality to the title.
Pros: This is one of the best games I have played, and I can say is the best DMC game. I loved the first game and I think this one blows it away. The new Angel/Demon weapon swapping system is amazing, this allowed me to actually use the other available weapons without sacrificing the trusty Rebellion and you no longer have to pause the game to change and try other weapons.
Cons: You unlock several weapons fairly late in the game, which would have been nice to have earlier to play around with, but you get to carry the weapons over into your next play-through, so its really not an issue.
Other Thoughts: A+ Ninja Theory and Capcom for choosing Ninja Theory to continue the franchise.
