Forums - Gaming Discussion - DmC Reviews Thread

Tagged games:

Ninja Theory's reboot of the Devil May Cry series is due in within a couple of weeks, 15 January 2013, and the first few reviews are coming in. Thread will be updated when new reviews start coming in. There are only print reviews so far, so they can't be linked to, but once the online reviews come up links will be provided. DmC demo has been on the Playstation Store and Xbox Live for the last few weeks, with some good impressions so far.

I'm aware the ending has been leaked (apparently). However these is not a thread for that; I trust no one will bring spoilers into this thread what so ever.

Well these are only the first few reviews, but theres bound to be 7-10s here and there, when the rest of the reviews come in we'll know for sure.



Saw a 89 in there.

That's it, terrible game.

Waiting for the "uwahhh emo dante is stupid lets give this a bad score" reviews. We all know they are comming.

But so far so good. Definitly gonna get the game.


My favourite games of 2013: Tearaway, P4G and Guacameele
Looking forward to: 
Ys Celceta, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Dragon Age 3, Witcher 3, Danganronpa, FF X HD, Gravity Rush 2, Freedom Wars and Broken Sword 5

All that matters is the combat and that 89% review claimed it's no where near as fluid as the original DMC games, so all that praise for the level design seems rather moot. Hopefully the PC version running at 60fps makes the game more fluid as I couldn't tolerate the gameplay in the demo on my PS3, as it felt too slow and disjointed.

good scores so far.

I'm cautiously considering giving this game a chance.

"The path of the righteous poster is beset on all sides by the inequities of the trollish and the tyranny of flaming men.
Blessed is he, who in the name of decency and good discussion, stays on topic through the valley of cheap shots, for he is truly his forum's keeper and the finder of lost quality.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to flame and troll other users.
And you will know my name is the Mod when I lay my banhammer upon thee.
