First battle of 2013: Why Revengeance is better than DmC (OXCGN Preview)


"If I’m spending countless hours swinging my sword at enemies, I not only want to enjoy doing it but I want to appreciate the effort I’ve put in to perform combos and stunning air defying stunts.

After spending the better of a few hours on both demos (note they can be finished within 30 minutes), I can safely say that of the two, Revengeance is the premiere hack and slash title to look forward to this year."

Stupid names for both of them, with both of them having protagonists people don't like....

But DMC seems more to my taste as far as environments and concept.

Raiden isn't on the level of dislike as Donte. He is at least an original character with depth. Donte is just an abomination of what was once an awesome character.

VsAssassin1390d ago

@TheBatman_Fanatic, Donte it is since his name is pronounce this way now. And I'm sure you already know this. Right?

DeusExer1391d ago

I thought the sword techniques were awesome in Revengeance from what I played at the EB Expo, but might get old after a while.

Both two different games IMO and I'll reserve judgement until I play both.

RyuX191391d ago

It doesn't get old. I've got about 5 hours on the MGR demo alone.

Idont know what it is, but something about Rising doesn't do it for me. I think Platinum is one of the best devs this gen, but Rising looks like it's lacking polish in a weird way, but I want to try out the demo. Platinum almost never fails, so i'll reserve judgement. I enjoyed the DmC demo though.

gaminoz1391d ago

The whole look turns me off. Not sure why though...except Raiden has never appealed

God of War should the the slasher of 2013?

GSpartan7771391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

It probably is going to be. God of War Ascension, just based off what they've showed us so far, looks more polished, fluid and smoother than DmC and MGR. The God of War games have critically also performed better than any game Platinum Games or Ninja Theory have developed. Story wise it's also the least ridiculous one.

prototypeknuckles1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

that is true, while kratos is a very over angry character, the story in god of war at least makes sense and feels epic, though for me the gameplay is a little too buttonmashy, but if some of those rumors from DmC are true like vergil turning into a dinosaur(LMFAO, oh god i hope that was fake) then yeah DmC just got a lot worse.

Neckbear1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

At least in a mainstream way. But God of War games have never been particularly engrossing for me, the gameplay in those games is incredibly simple (as in "mash square and roll occasionally" simple) and seeing it become the genre's primary example is kind of...sad. Especially because more games aspire to be like it and copy its gameplay to some degree, which I just don't enjoy at all. At least not as much as DMC4's or Bayonetta's.

The games may not have twitch-finger reflexes and perfect pixel combos, but the games are still pretty good. It's kind of like RPGs nowadays. JRPGs (not all,but alot were) used to be King of RPGs, having great story, great characters, great setting, and longevity/replay value. Now, WRPGs are taking over, and the developers who used to develop great JRPGs (cough* Final Fantasy *cough*) are now taking cues from WRPGs (which is by no means a bad thing), and making JRPGs more westernized. I admit I've button smashed in every hack-and-slash game and won. I've even button smashed in God of War III's Titan difficulty and beat it. But that does not mean God of War is a bad game, and is certainly fine for other games to try and copy it, maybe not just for the gameplay, but the mood, setting, characters, etc.

Really looking forward to Rising... not so much DMC.
