1UP:Preview|DmC Demonstrates Ninja Theory's Thoughtful Approach to Action Games

1UP:A few hours into DmC, my mind can't help but dwell on an obvious question: What the hell was everyone so worried about? Obviously the highly controversial Devil May Cry reboot has come a long way since its TGS 2010 reveal. You remember it, right? The scene where a drab and emo-looking Dante used an enemy's face as an ashtray, thus setting the world ablaze with fan rage at the same time. But developer Ninja Theory have stuck by their convictions, making minor alterations to their Dante re-design and preserving what they believe is cool. With each subsequent trailer since they've reminded folks the veteran developers behind Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: Journey to the West understand combat-heavy character-driven action games. For DmC, they've reworked their signature approach to combat and integrated a fantastic and empowering juggle system that provides lots of variety. After spending seven hours with a near complete build of DmC, I'm convinced Ninja Theory was the best choice for this reboot and I hope people will appreciate what they've done to the characters, the story, and the combat. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

What the hell are we so worried about?

2edgy4you emo character.
SSS in one hit.
complete destruction of the cool DMC universe.

"A handful of fresh ideas from the developer help transform Dante from effeminate, borderline-anime male lead..."

In other word, capcom sent us a hefty bag of "$wag" in exchange for our dignity.

All these preview are the goddamn same. Some journalist over emphasizing that we shouldn't have to worry about the looks, when it never only been about the looks. Then proceeds to write the most generic writeups, telling us the control scheme and the features we already known 6 months ago. And then concluding that, "It's ok guys, don't be mad. This is like Devil May Cry"

Game runs inconsistent on both consoles (PS3 cutscenes very jerky)

No Lock on

Dante is just a replica of the stupid chavs from UK

Game runs inferior to the likes of God Of War 3, which out performs it on a technical, graphical and performance scale. Embarrassment much? and that is a 2010 game!

Practically ripping off ideas from different areas and passing it off as original (Vergil with the Saw/Annonymous mask, Inception environments)

Seriously wonder how much the press get paid from Capcom to say this load of shit, but then again, DMC2 got its praise too, its when the reviews came out, thats when it hit them.

Capcom must be paying a hell of a lot of money for all these reviews. Because none of them have complained about the obvious stuff like the broken dodge ability that gives you instant SSS or the crappy frame-rate.

And the more you play it the less it feels like DMC and more like a Heavenly Sword clone. =/

"I'm convinced Ninja Theory was the best choice for this reboot"
REALLY!!! Surely Platinum Games would have suited it better?
Maybe they couldn't, too busy or whatever, but NT the BEST choice?
I'm calling foul with these previews too. Either these people are completely oblivious to the reasonable points being made by critics or something sinister is afoot?
