DmC Devil May Cry Review | Insight Factor

Has Devil May Cry's reboot lived up to the expectations? One of the first reviews (a readable one finally) clears some doubts on the matter. [Translation available on the top right corner, just click the english flag] (DmC: Devil May Cry, PS3, Xbox 360) 7.5/10

I wonder who's the butthurt who came up with that lol
Chuk5  +   853d ago
That's not even clever.

So wait... They hired Ninja Theory for their writing and one of the first reviews says this?

"Just a shame for a plot far from exciting and a technical sector not really rise to the occasion ... "

... Odd translating aside, that shows that even the plot is not up to par. And we know the gameplay isn't...

The plot according to the reviews dies off as you are nearing the end of the game. This site called the plot dull, inconclusive and unpleasant - the game apparently makes a lot of sex jokes.

Gamemasters said that story fades toward the end.

This seems about right, after playing the demo and viewing many gameplay, story, and interview videos, this new DMC game seems to be around a 7.5 quality. I think the average once reviews get released will be in this area. I envision it being considered a good game. Not Great or Exceptional, but good. So a 7.5 seems fair.

Well... if you pay attention to the webasite, it says it isn't a real magazine (not a registered one) and members who write reviews and other articles are just... people not journalists.
Maybe videogamers, ok, but... it sounds like an article based on a demo or a backup copy of the game reviewed with a non-enthusiastic rate to get some views and visitors.

Everyone can write it, considering it's not a website with embargos or other things that important sites and magazines have to respect. For example, I played the game, tomorrow I'll write the review, I put it here in N4G and... that's all...

It's ok, and maybe the final verdict is also common, but ... ehi, who f****n cares about it? Let's wait some other articles, it's not important which f****n shitty site gets the review for first. Let's have an opinion by ourselves ;)

A quick follow up about that since i'm the reviewer and owner of the website: i've been working in the Italian Videogames press for 8 years and before opening up Insight Factor I was one of the senior editors @ Eurogamer Italy - Google my name if you don't trust me, Davide Persiani. Review doesn't seem fair? I choose to quit a paid job, and start my own gaming portal in order to always be able to write freely about videogames. If I wanted to troll I would have kept my salary and opened a wordpress blog ;) a 7.5 might sound unfair but it's just my point of view, nothing more nothing less.

Cheers!
Saijan8t9  +   853d ago
Maybe you don't understand: the 7.5 for DMC could be also good but... you know... it's just an opinion as others.

I just think you wrote the review for first just to get more visits for your amatorial website and it's really not important if you worked as a journalist (did you enjoy your 400 dollars per month? :) ) it's just an opinion (as you said, anyway).

Isn't there an embargo or something like that? Maybe other sites/magazines should write their opinions days, weeks or months beforse the games r out. Your reviews could also be good but it is attracting attention just because is the first.

And, well, ok, you don't want to troll (I trust you!) and the site is not a wordpress blog. It's a Joomla one :)
Xlight87  +   853d ago
I'm sorry if I grave you the wrong idea, but I only talked about my past to give a little credit to my work and website ;) That said I understand your concerns and subtle jokes... in your shoes i'd probably say the same ;) cheers m8
Saijan8t9  +   853d ago
Well... lol I'm not so serious and you're kind, man ;)

And I was bitchy just because I worked for IGN for a couple of years as an editor :)

I just wonder (answer if you want to) if Capcom gave you the game already or you got it by yourself. Your site is an independent one, you can tell us!

Bye ;)

this doesn't read like an actual review...there is nothing specific about it. The reviewer is only very vague and most of the things he writes are filler and no substance.
timeon11111111111  +   852d ago
Because spesifically mentioning that enemy AI is a bit dull, and Lock on not being there is bad is STILL to vague?

QUOTE
The first thing to note is that we are faced with a DMC of moderate thickness in terms of the battle system, although since the first few minutes it is clear that everything has been slightly simplified, both in terms of depth of gameplay, both as concerns the discrete enemy AI ... not to mention the absurd and inexplicable omission of the lock-on enemies, a feature which results in comparison much more chaotic and less "tactical" than in the past.
