Devil May Cry 5 review
by Curious_Cat

Favorite Thing: Three different playable characters was a nice touch. V in particular has a nice and different play style.
Least Favorite Thing: Lady and Trish aren't featured enough. They feel like an afterthought.

Story: 10/10 - A great conclusion to the story of DMC, tying all the loose ends together and teasing a new beginning for the series. the characters are as fun as always and there were some amazing, epic moments near the end. Also there are lots of nods to the previous games. 

Combat: 10/10 - This is where this game truly shines. The combat in the series is always some of the deepest and most engaging in all of gaming. DMC5 in my opinion is DMC at it's best. And even though some of the more hard core fan base had some serious problems with it, I personally had probably the most fun ever. There are three characters (Nero, Dante and V) and each one of them plays very different. While I didn't enjoy V as much as the other two, I still thought he was  very well fleshed out and fun to use.

Graphics: 9/10 - The game runs on the RE Engine and it shows. It looks stunning and runs like a dream. the characters look amazing and their animations are on point. The only critique I will leave here is that the environments all kind of look very similar. But we're not here to enjoy the view, are we? We're here to kick demon ass.

Sound: 10/10 - Devil Trigger is now one of my favourite songs and it's definitely one of the greatest battle themes ever. Actually all of the battle themes are quite amazing and the music that plays while fighting the final boss gets you so pumped, you won't even be mad about dying a couple times. Though eventually frustration will get bigger...... BANGBANGBANG, PULL MY DEVIL TRIGGER!

Devil May Cry 5 Review Important: This was my first Devil May Cry and in the Creation of the Review it was played out 1 time on Human (easiest Difficulty level). In Fairness, the Story is not included in the Review because I lack too much Background knowledge from the other Parts. Let's Start with the Cons and Pros of the Game: Cons: A little disappointing Final Fight [I even felt all the other Boss fights were better.] The Level design is partly similar strongly [I think you could have been a little more creative] humor is very cheesy [that's maybe also part of the Series and so wanted by Fans] Pros: Very good Music selection during the Fights varied and well-staged Boss battles 6 Difficulty levels [2 at the Start, 4 unlockable] Good and fair Combat System [For me, there was no RNG or similar to be found at the first play] 3 playable characters [can probably claim the at least Action/HuS of themselves] Very many unlockable Attack Good Mix of Gameplay and Cutscenes Conclusion: Overall, I had a lot of Fun playing through and can in good Conscience make a Buy recommendation here. I really liked the Boss fights (except for the last one). In particular, I am a Fan of the many unlockable Things that motivates you in addition to continuing to play. It is one of the few Games I will probably play at least again in the Future. At the end, for me, the following Rating emerges: 89

The best Devil May Cry there is-I only came to the deer with the 4th Part and had to get some Hard in as I just don't like This Rigidity camera perspective at all, I played through it anyway because it was just really cool otherwise. With DMC-Devil May Cry, however, I'm really into the Hype of EVERYTHING That works-there was a free Camera really horny-only the "Design" of DMC was badly Changed (the Weapons, Dante himself) which I didn't think bad now but Somehow "weird." Devil May Cry 5 combines everything good from the two Predecessors a very nicely told Story, enormously fluid fights, with the Difficulty levels also really crass rising Challenges and the just Super cool Appearance of the Characters, this wonderful The Arrogance Depicted Is simply on a new Level-and especially the Graphics just Beautiful!!! Finally, the best thing the Game works-so it really is a Game that has come out in "Gold" Status-no Bugs, no lags, no optimization problems it just runs smoothly and that Nowadays is unfortunately a Rarity < 3 < 3 < 3 For all those who have a say " Microtransactions "annoy or upset the Following: If you want to have the game with all The content available at the Moment then take up The Deluxe Edition-the Blue And Red Orbs you can also collect In-game this Option is only for those who don't have the Skill themselves Unplaying just like The Alternative Outfits for V and Vergil Or the Super Autfits for the 3 Games characters-you can experience it all yourself. There is no In-game Shop!!! Really annoying Microtransactions are when you buy a Full Price title (partly for €100s' and More in the Gold/Deluxe Edition) and then are coerced by Ingameshop with real Money currency to buy if you want to have the Game including all content (i.e. outfits, Weapons, Items or Techniques that are NOT To be played In-game or are behind Extreme Grind Walls) I recommend the Game only on the difficulty level "man" to Start simply to free up the Weapons and Collect some Blue, Violet and red Orbs And Also to unlock a few of the Techniques-because you need them at higher levels of Difficulty. Just a Buy recommendation the Game is huge Fun, runs Great and depends on Many Titles Graphically just (especially as far as facial Mimics are concerned) I have expected a lot and yet positive has been Surprised and that has never Happened before!!! Thank you Capcom for this thoroughly Positive Experience < 3
+ Opportunity for extremely stylish combat
+ Excellent performance even on aged hardware, fantastic facial animation
+ Adrenaline infused soundtrack

- Repetitive gameplay
- Constant cutscenes interrupt flow
- Goofy incoherent story
- Being forced to switch characters (Didn't enjoy V)
