Spend some time on the corners of the internet where Devil May Cry fans hang out, and you'd be forgiven for believing that DmC is a crime against humanity. For Capcom has apparently committed a great sin by rebooting the venerable game series with a more...

DmC: Devil May Cry has had a tumultuous launch. What else can be expected when you reboot one of Capcom’s biggest game franchises and turn it into something completely different? A new plot, new setting, rebooted characters and a completely different...

Meanwhile, the gameplay echoes every bit of that, demanding that you play to a level befitting a rebellious teen-demon, or it lops off large chunks of your health bar. It’s an imaginative game with well-built mechanics that will leave you with sweaty palms and wanting seconds. What more could you ask for?

The re-envisioned demon slayer Dante is in for one hell of a ride. Not only has he got an army of fans that have been with Capcom’s Devil may Cry franchise since the beginning who’re fanatically devoted to his white mop of hair, not only has he found...

Set in a dark world where demons waged war against mankind and its half demon reluctant guardian Dante, the story proved an instant hit with...

There's no point in looking back: Dante has got a brand-new future in front of him, and if DmC: Devil May Cry is anything to go by, it's going to be a great one.

By LevelUp on 93

Se trata de una entrega que de ninguna forma busca sustituir el concepto formado a lo largo de los pasados 12 años, y que muestra una nueva perspectiva cuyo objetivo es darle un respiro a la serie para mantenerla fresca e innovar en ella.

With assured storytelling, great combat, and imaginative design, DmC: Devil May Cry is a more-than-worthy reboot for a classic...

I still remember the first time I ever played the original 2001 Devil May Cry. I mean, it was all just so cool. The style, the brutality, the never-ending combos, the white hair. But as years passed, that white sheen dulled to a time-worn gray, and...

This is digital action at its finest, steeped in the blood of angels, spiced with gunpowder, and garnished with a middle finger.

By GameTrailers on 85

If you can forgive a few excesses--like the pretty-but-toothless boss fights--you'll find that your old friend hasn’t changed all that much on the inside, in spite of his new style. By our estimation, this hard-edged cynicism isn’t a bad look for Dante. We just hope he’s a little better at aiming on his next go ‘round.

Available on Xbox 360 (reviewed), PS3, PC DmC is everything that Capcom fans should dread. It's a reboot of a beloved franchise with the hero transformed beyond all recognition, and one that's been tackled by an external, Western developer. Bearing in...

After the horrors of Resident Evil: Outbreak and the disappointments of Resident Evil 6, Capcom has finally got something right. Ninja Theory's reimagining of Devil May Cry has some of the best combat and most lavish spectacle of any game in its genre,...

DmC: Devil May Cry is fabulously fun, stylish and energetic hack and slashing, backed with a marvellous world and plenty of challenge...

By TrueAchievements on 100

DmC has captured all the elements of gameplay that made the franchise what it is, and yet they have also managed to bring something new and fresh to the genre, they’ve added their own little bit of magic and boy does it work. Whilst the title is not perfect, it is good. Really good. Really really damn good! Move over Bayonetta, there’s a new kid in town!

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

Avec son héros rebelle et arrogant, DmC Devil May Cry prend le risque de froisser les fans de la série, qui auraient pu apprécier plus de finesse et de subtilité dans la mise en scène et les dialogues. Le jeu se montre toutefois solide dans son gameplay...
