Great review. I will say that DmC is Ninja Theory's best efforts ever put in a game. The combat in the game is far better than anything they have done in past games. They really tried hard to impress, but ultimately failed due to their ego. I'm not sure if anyone is going to remember DmC by the end of the year, but I'm sure people will remember the controversy surrounding it.

Having played the demo (not sure how drastically the demo varies from full retail) i think Heavenly Sword is still the strongest Ninja Theory game.

You can definitely feel that Heavenly Sword influence in there with the basic attack, hold right side for Devil moves and left side for Angel moves, just like Heavenly Swords normal, heavy and range attack system.

Yeah. I think I overstated their "best efforts ever put in a game" line, when DmC is just a modification of a pre-existing story. Their best game is Heavenly Sword.

Rebooting a game that didn't need a reboot just seems like a waste, considering that time could have been used to make another Heavenly Sword.

Haven't played it yet, but I'm cautiously optimistic. It can't be as bad as NG3 and I don't mind the new look...

Boy, this was one great game.
I largely agree with some of the points you're making, though, even though I for example thought Devil Trigger was a lifesaver.

To each their own, but I'm playing it now and the full game is a lot better than what the demo offered.

Heavenly Sword meets DMC, but once you start unlocking more abilities it definitely leans more along the DMC gameplay.

It's actually pretty good so far.

You said it's not that bad, but gave it a 6. You know you wanted to give it a higher score, come on, you know you wanna.

Sorry, but looks like you only try to talk with a "false" face, masking the fact you dont like the game at all talking about the "pro" and give at this game a 6, Graphics 7 (I dont think you really understand what "graphics" mean) and "Bland, Uninteresting Characters" ... Really !?! I think you forgot how much ridiculous sometime Dante was in his "bully japan" style!
"Juvenile Story and Writing" ... Again, you forgot the original DMC story ... really.

This is not a review, sorry, it's just a rant.

Ps You may try to find a job at Edge. Same attitude.

Have a good day.

Why so serious? This is a user review. It's not based on a professional system of grading. User reviews are just personal view points on a game.

If you disagree, you're more than welcome to write your own user review.

Can't say this wasn't inevitable. I knew that when I wrote this someone was going to be sore about what I had to say about the game. Deadpool616 is right, why so serious?

I think my score of 6, which basically matches average, is not a stain on the game. I even say that this game is not for everyone, but that it plays well and if you want to try it then do so. I'm not insulting anyone who likes it or damning Ninja Theory for trying a reboot.

Oh, and your "false" face idea of how I really feel about the game is ridiculous. I've played through the whole thing. I know what I'm talking about. While I don't claim to absolutely love it, I did enjoy some of it, but I also don't hate it.

I do understand graphics thank you very much. In relation to style, textures, and load times, graphics should be presentable. There should also be no blatant bugs and glitches. I found that the style was unique, but that there are a few hiccups with the 30 frames per second and that the presentation could have been better.

Yes, I found the characters to be bland and uninteresting. They are not well rounded nor do I care about them through the writing or their backgrounds. I like the gameplay, but I was not invested in the story whatsoever.

Despite what you think, this is a review. I have written quite a few of them. Your comment, however, sounds more like a rant. At that, it's a rant against someone who isn't praising the game like others are and you disagree with me, but you present your disagreement by insulting me and completely negating my review with what you claim to be true as if I have some hidden, evil agenda.

Honestly, now, how sore are you about me giving this game a 6?

Reviews are based the player's experience with the game and the games they have played before it. Personally, I'd give this game anything between a 6-8, 8.5 is pushing it a little though. This game is too good to be anything 5 and below, but this game isn't a Bayonetta amazing to warrant giving it a 9-10.

Yes, Bayonetta was the last hack and slash action game that blew me away. Asura's wrath was really good too, but what really killed that game for me was DLC (selling the real ending). Would I be wrong to say that I had more fun playing Bayonetta than DmC? That's my opinion. If you think DMC is the best game in the world,that's your opinion. You clearly had more fun with the game than this reviewer.

At the end of the day Reviews are just opinions and suggestions. Professional or just the average person, it's ALL JUST AN OPINION/SUGGESTION!
