Haters be damned, virtually all reviews of Ninja Theory’s Devil May Cry reboot seem to cement the game as a must-buy. All scores are inside.
So close. Ninja Theory has succeeded in revitalising a classic series, but DmC is almost a classic in its own right. Don’t think too much about the lows, because the highs here are so very high, and show without question that Capcom has faith in the right developer. Ninja Theory has absolutely nailed the leading man and the combat system – by far the most important things – and DmC is clearly a labour of love, a tribute as well as a new beginning.
As for Dante, beneath the attitude and the look and the fancy moves, the most important thing hasn’t changed. This guy might be new, but he’s still hardcore. – Eurogamer
