"Devil May Cry is certainly a harmless package, but 'harmless' is not an adjective that does such a deadly franchise any favours. Dante's 2D adventure plays itself out without ever paying service to such notions as 'fun' or 'ingenuity'. This is by-the-numbers stuff from a studio renowned for creativity and in a franchise celebrated for its sheen and vitality. 2D or not 2D? On this evidence, there's not even a question."
