Personally for me I found this gameplay almost laughable to watch the thing. ... Yeah the trailer just kind of left me even more unsatisfied in this game. lol
jc48573  +   1154d ago
the more I watch it or the more I play it, I feel this game feels a lot like Enslaved (one of NT's game). Enemies in here just look like a variation of enemies in Enslaved.

I guess it has a lot to do with Unreal Engine cause all games look similar in some respect.
Temporary  +   1153d ago
I dont see the hate for the game ... it plays just like every other DMC, I own every one of them and it feels the same...just looks better and has better voice acting/story.

People just hate to hate ... theres nothing blatantly wrong with the game, the demo actually convinced me to purchase the game.
zerocrossing  +   1154d ago
Just played the demo, it was absolutely awful, choppy animations, awkward controls and the game glitched up on me 3 times.

I wasn't expecting to like the game from the start given my feelings about the reboot but its genuinly just plain bad.

This game already had all the makings of a flop, but after playing the demo for Metal Gear Rising, and considering that GoW Ascencion and Castlevania LoS2 are being released next year as well... Donte may Cry looks like a train wreck waiting to happen.
LordMe  +   1154d ago
This... Looks like crap! The fist weapons just look lazy on Ninja Theory's part. No effort went into them at all.

Gameplay looks like crap, and that is not Dante, so why should i buy it again? Both, Story and Gamplay are bad so why bother? Give me a reason, Crapcom.
vork77  +   1154d ago
really giant fist?
ChickeyCantor  +   1154d ago
The first game had something similar. They emit fire basically. Not sure why this is such a shock.

DMC 1 and 2 are ridiculously bad. I have no idea why people seem to jerk all over it.

I basically stopped playing the second game.
Everyone is telling me to play 3. I hope it's better than the first 2.
rezzah  +   1154d ago
DMC1 is the second best, for some it is the best in the series.

DMC2 is the worst.
ABizzel1  +   1154d ago
I went back and played the collection, and DMC 1 wasn't the timeless gem people make it.

Didn't even bother with 2.

DMC 3 is the best game in the series by far.

Ninja Theory's DmC looks cool, and interesting, but it's not a traditional DMC game. From what I've played it's solid, but not the game changer Capcom was hoping for, but it's greatest strength should come from story and character development which is probably my most important reason for playing DmC (which I'm happy, but upset about).

I'm glad we get to learn more about Dante, besides the half baked history provided by the other games, and I like the NT's take on how demons interact with the world. Hopefully a sequel can be produced where CAPCOM is in complete control of combat, they get the game looking on par with the cutscenes, and the expand on the DmC universe through NT's vision.
Temporary  +   1153d ago
The only people saying this game is going to flop are the immature children that hate any kind of change (even though there is barely any change in gameplay at all!)

Quit hating ... lol, yeah Ninja Theory's track record isnt perfect right now and you have every right to dislike them, but this game plays very well and 99% of the hate is just bias.
DragonKnight  +   1154d ago
I was right. Everything that was in the demo is in this piece o' shite game. This is the DmC we're supposed to love? Crapcom and NT deserve to have this game fail miserably and I REALLY hope it does. Terrible game is terrible.
Blacklash93  +   1154d ago
The combat looks okay-ish and I like that Dante can finally run like he isn't dragging bricks by his ankles constantly.

Really do not like the new aesthetic and direction, though. Environments and enemies are very bland. The new Dante is Euro-punk to an obnoxiuos degree with an attitude not unlike a common bully to match. And the dialogue is somehow worse despite the game being handed to a more western studio.

strigoi814  +   1154d ago
I wonder if you guys will change your opinion to this game if the blonde dante would be the character instead of this emo dante..
caseh  +   1154d ago
Possibly lol.

Although looking at the combo rating system, its broken. Seems to hold indefinately unless you take a hit then it drops a few ranks but shouldn't it drop unless you are performing, like...ya know...combos?
rezzah  +   1154d ago
The plot, Vergil, Colour change trigger, mother being an angel, is terrible. Also his hair is white, not Blonde. Trish's hair is blonde.

So no I wouldn't change my opinion if his hair was white.
youndamie  +   1154d ago
Blonde Dante!!!! who the heck is that?. And for your information if white/silver haired Dante was in this game with that atmosphere and game play yes our opinion would not change.
Lord_Sloth  +   1154d ago
1st Dante has White hair
2nd His attitude is also in need of a major adjustment
3rd The gameplay would still be bad
4th Ninja Theory's crappy PR job
prototypeknuckles  +   1154d ago
i cant speak for everyone else but even if it had white haired dante,(hes not blonde) that wont change the fact that the game is a complete downgrade, besides i never hated on the way the new guy looks, besides that i dont think the story will be that good either and ive played past ninja theory games.
PopRocks359  +   1154d ago
Well just like in Other M, a part of the game wouldn't be utter shit.

I played the demo for this game and I hated almost all of it. The gameplay was okay at best and sub-par at worst. The cutscenes are the only part of the game that occasionally run at 60 frames per second and on top of that the writing is complete shit.

I want nothing to do with this game and Dante's design is the least of my problems with it.
zerocrossing  +   1154d ago
Its not the look, its everything!

No matter what way you look at it, DmC is a step backwards for the franchise on almost every level.
torchic  +   1154d ago
well Capcom, what this trailer did is remind me that I still have to buy El Shaddai. this level reminds me so so much of the demo I played for El Shaddai.
rezzah  +   1154d ago
El Shaddai is nice, but the story flow isn't great. If anything they way the game looks and feels is unique, to me it was intriguing.

Combat system is simple, but becomes more complex when fighting the (side) bosses. Timing and understanding their various moves is essential in some cases because if you lose you continue on your journey without retrying; this applies for the side bosses only. I like the idea of not getting that second chance because it's a different experience, but also dislike it because I want to see if I can actually beat them.

Interesting Game for sure.

I really need to finish it.
landog  +   1154d ago
i think it looks better than i thought it would be, don't like the new dante, but whatever, the gameplay looks smooth

i'll pick this up on a steam sale a few months after the jan.25th release for $10

looks like a competent action game

part 3 and 4 were excellent imo, part 4 on pc performs perfectly, controls awesomely with a 360 controller and looks amazing, dx10, 1080p native, 60 smooth frames, 16xq anti aliasing, nice game!

It's funny how the people who don't want to play the game actually watch every new dmc video. And they always comment the same thing. That this game sucks blah, blah, blah. Yea what's the point of watching something you don't like. And keep saying you don't like it. Makes no sense. A mature person would just move on. But no, today people are too inmature. Really your gonna spend your time arguing and complaining over fictional characters that are not even real.
PopRocks359  +   1154d ago
I played the demo. Didn't change my opinion in the slightest. Satisfied?
DragonKnight  +   1154d ago
Because Capcom have to know that people don't like the crap they pull. If everyone had the attitude you're talking about, the level of how much we're screwed over would skyrocket even more than what it already is. We have a passion for games and we want to see justice done to franchises we helped to build with our money. You can sit there and mock or degrade us for this, but there will come a day when a similar question is asked of you. When that day comes, remember this day and hope that you can explain to the one asking why it is you stand against moves like this.

What do you think the world would be like if it were filled with "yes" men?
prototypeknuckles  +   1154d ago
well said, exactly what ive been saying, because lets be honest if this was happening to god of war or halo, or even zelda people would be pissed off as well.
VileAndVicious  +   1153d ago

I can respect your statement but I suppose what Crimso is trying to say is that its one thing to state your displeasure for the direction of the new game (I can personally see why some might not like it from a gameplay stand point)But its another thing entirely to go into every single DmC article (you know who you are) and flame it. Thats called trolling. And believe it or not there are actually some people that are interested in this game, which creates a hostile place to say anything positive. There is just way too much negativity.

So your right people should vocalize their displeasure for the changes but also move on for 3 reasons

1) Dmc is releasing on 01/15/13 no matter what. There is very little to no chance that if capcom hasnt been listening, they will all of a sudden and halt the production and say "Hey, guys we messed up, sorry were going back to the drawing board."

2)If it bombs hard, no one buys it and the reviews reek then Capcom will definitely go back to the old Dante with a game thats produced in-house from japan. We can all go on with the rest of our lives pretending that the game never existed and leave it right next to Dmc2. Hell you guys even get the satisfaction of saying "I told you so!" to Capcom for a while.

3) If DmC does get glowing reviews (which Im starting to believe it just might) and it sells well (because good reviews tend to help generate good sales.) then from a business standpoint Capcom made the right decision.

So what it comes down to is not who screams the loudest about how much they hate "Donte" or how NT has disrespected fans and the franchise, but profit.

Speak with your voice move on but vote with your wallet.
DragonKnight  +   1153d ago
"But its another thing entirely to go into every single DmC article (you know who you are) and flame it. Thats called trolling."

That depends. If someone is going into every article and expressing their dislike of the game, I wouldn't necessarily consider that to be trolling. Especially when you consider that there is a huge propaganda war going on with this game between Capcom (and Capcom-Unity), Ninja Theory, and the idiot media who gloss over all the problems with this game.

"And believe it or not there are actually some people that are interested in this game, which creates a hostile place to say anything positive."

And there are more that are upset with the bastardization of the game. It's unfortunate but the reality is that there really aren't any actual positives to this game. If I had more room I'd go over all the negatives and people could explain why those negatives aren't a problem for them.

1. Irrelevant. They need to know that this isn't acceptable for the future.

2. Or maybe they can the Devil May Cry franchise altogether and cite that no one likes the franchise anymore when, in reality, we didn't like this unnecessary redesign.

3. Yeah, I can already see the apologisers in the media kissing up to Capcom and how Capcom, Capcom-Unity, and NT are stating they eliminated fan hate even though if you look on Capcom-Unity (before posts are deleted) the official Facebook page (same thing) or Tameem Antoniades' Twitter you can see a lot of people asking why the game is too easy, why the style meter is broken, why the guns are nerfed, etc.. etc... etc.... That's not the hallmark of a good game, but it will be getting good scores regardless of truth. Then Capcom will continue on with this farce of a reimagining and the Devil May Cry as we know it will cease to exist. Resident Evil 6 is proof enough.

I sincerely hope people will not buy this game new. Capcom and Ninja Theory's arrogance should not be rewarded.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   1154d ago
It's called constructively voicing your opinion.

If we all said it sucked without touching or looking at it, we would be idiots. However, since we have looked at it, played it, etc. We can say it sucks empirically which is good.
AgentCLJ  +   1153d ago
@Crimso Dragon 90...While you may be right that some people just want to hate on the game, some fans watch the videos and read the articles hoping, begging for something that will show them flashes of the previous games in the series. I for one, have not seen the flashes i am looking for. Maybe with the release of the full game i will. Probably not lol...
TemplarDante  +   1154d ago
New dante is so lame..
How does this appeal to anyone other than kids as well as adults that need to grow up?
Im NOT buying. If you love our beloved Real Dante and the real franchise you wont either. If this game succeeds, its Omimusha under the Ninja Theory chopping block next!

The logic of gamers these days....

*In an alternate reality*
WHAT?!?!? They never even changed the main character!! Its still the same Dante... With the same dated controls, I wish they'd reboot the series and get it over with! Face it we need a new Dante!!!

*this reality*
WHAT?!?! They made the main character look TOTALLY different!!! What was wrong with the old Dante?!? Plus the game plays like a joke compared to the original 2 DMC titles... Why do they always have to reboot EVERYTHING THESE DAYS?!?!

God I hate these "gamers " of today

"Reboots are fine when they treat the franchise with respect"

Just curious, but what does this mean to you?
IMO with reboots anything can potentially be changed from origins, Character traits, even sometimes the protagonist himself changes.
lol hell in the Marvel universe Peter Parker isnt even Spiderman anymore.

Maybe its because Im somewhat of a Comic Nerd myself but reboots are just re-imaginings of characters. These characters are often interpreted in different ways as they relate to the person that creates them. Does anyone remember Frank Millers take on Batman?
Tainted Gene  +   1154d ago
The thumbnail of this article seems very fitting, since all the hate this game will be receiving (justifiably so) would taylor such a response. So "Dante's" reaction seem ironically appropriate.

basically :

Dante- "yeah, yeah i know my game sucks..... so phuk you!"
bayonetta  +   1154d ago
anyone Remember when They said that DmC will have European flavour lol
TemplarDante  +   1153d ago
European flavour? This Dante is NOT European, he is merely a collective manifestation of the words "white trash".
