Is game is as predicted by true Devil May Cry fans. It's slow combat, and no skill required gameplay make this a terrible addition to the Devil May Cry series. It is slow and suffers from unresponsive controls. There is also a game breaking glitch that will not let me finish the boss no matter how many times I quit the demo or redownload it, this was on both systems. This demo only goes to prove Ninja Theory dose not care about anyone or anything besides their over inflated ego. They have no idea how Devil May Cry is suppose to play, act, and feel. Fans all stood up to let them know they were doing it wrong and all NT could do was insult fans and the creator of Devil May Cry.

You didn't play the demo, did you?

It sounds like you didn't play it. The controls are tight, the combos are intricate, and it FEELS like Devil May Cry.

You must have skipped the boss fight?? I always thought that gif of Dante mashing the same heavy attack over and over again and getting an SS was a gag, but you can in fact mash the same two buttons repeatedly to achieve an SS on that boss and the rest of the enemies. The combat feels nothing like Devil May Cry.

I do, however, agree that the controls are outstanding. Especially the platforming which NT has never done well.

I played both levels multiple times. You can't get SS by mashing. You have to change it up... Which version were you playing? Perhaps there is a bug. I was on the PS3 version.

we must not have the same definition of intricate . It was an easy spam fest . And harder difficulties will be the same , only obviously harder but still broken , not stylish and easy .

It was called eons ago , but why did they even bother including platforming ? It's yet another iteration of quasi-auto platforming , that serves no purpose in the game

Summons751975d ago

Did you because the demo was anything but tight and intricate. That or you have never played Devil May Cry in your life and you think your some sort of hero defending this POS game.

ThanatosDMC1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

Wow, really? You couldnt get an SS ranking on the boss fight?

They must need to dumb down the game some more. 1st hit should start at S.

Edit: I had SSS rank the whole time without getting hit. I bet some people here on N4G has done the same on they first time. Bet they all ready have a gameplay vid of it on youtube too. <- that's hard?

When I was making this preview I played through the demo multiple times. The only thing that felt a little stiff was the jumping controls

I personally thought the demo was fantastic, it felt great, and was very fun. If this demo is any indication as to how the final product will turn out, they at least have one guaranteed sale.

Played the demo and this game lacks creativity compared old Devil May Cry games.. u_u'

kanetheking1974d ago

not as Japanese is that why there is a lack of creativity?

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1974d ago

Nah I think it just has something to do with NT being extremely bland and boring devs.

kanetheking1974d ago

Vashlion you can call nt bland but your can't really call the game bland, since the levels look pretty different from other hack n slashs, or is there something else what is bland?

Neko_Mega1975d ago

It was ok, but alot of buttons felt they were wasted on doing the same thing with another weapon.

Why do we need a angel weapon to swing/hook to things? As well as a demon one? I think they had no idea what they should do with this game or the weapons.

The game isn't fully bad, but it feels like they could have done alot more with it. Seeing how alot of the DMC games have in the past.
