StickSkills said, "Ninja Theory’s reboot of the popular Devil May Cry series was initially met with disdain by some, partly due to the fact that the game featured a radically different aesthetic and a younger, more arrogant Dante with dark hair. Of course, most of this criticism was conducted without actually witnessing or playing any of the game. Finally, however, we have a playable demo, so that the praise and condemnation can finally have a tangible basis. The verdict? DmC: Devil May Cry is awesome—really awesome, and fans of the series that can look past a trite character revamp will find the game they’ve always loved."
