About

DMC: Devil May Cry is a hack-and-slash adventure game, the fifth installment in Capcom’s Devil May Cry franchise and reboot of the series. This is the first game in the series not developed by Capcom, but rather by English studio Team Ninja. Concerning story, the game is connected to the previous game and changes the cast of characters and even Dante’s (the series main protagonist) iconic appearance (which was met with indignation from the series fans at the time). The game’s story is notable for its social commentary regarding mass-media and modern capitalism drawbacks.
The gameplay overall is very similar to the other installments of the Devil May Cry series and is heavily focused on fast-paced fighting with hordes of demons with occasional puzzles and platforming sections. The main change in the game’s combat mechanics is the Angel and Devil modes. They alternate Dante’s and attacks and special abilities. The modes are activated by holding left or right trigger (on the controller) which makes switching between them instant and allows performing complex combos, combining each mode’s unique features.

Such a great game! The gameplay is smooth with responsive controls, level design pushes you to explore and wait for every new level, Dante himself is awesome and badass. I appreciate how they turned a simple dark theme into something special. Another thanks for the sound design and music - they fit the game perfectly and create the right atmosphere. Combat mechanics are stylish and together with such musical support they look even better. Highly recommended game, no doubt.  
Everything besides the plot is great but the story is a core of any game… And here it’s weak and boring. Dante is so annoying that I don’t understand how people can even like him. As a protagonist he sucks. If there’s a character I hate more, it’s Bayonetta.  
«Disappointment of the year»
I understand the DMC series is all about hacking and slashing with a touch of running and jumping but I get tired of them very soon. I lasted perhaps 4 hours on this game (though I managed to complete some previous DMC games). The enemies are very repetitive, the level design is also un-imaginative at most. As far as I understand this is a hallmark of the series to reuse some objects/places or even entire locations over and over throughout the game with small alterations. But to me it feels as if I start watching some blockbuster with cool SFX and then I notice that pretty much all of the action happens in the same stage set with the same background. I guess for DMC fans this game might be the best one of the series, but I doubt that you'll love it a lot if you are not in this community.
