DmC: Devil May Cry | The Sun review

DmC is as good, if not better than any Devil May Cry title before it. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9/10

"DmC is as good, if not better than any Devil May Cry title before it."

I beg to differ, DmC may be a decent action game but to say it comes even close to the quality of previous titles is ridiculous.

"DmC is as good, if not better than any Devil May Cry title before it."

Yeah, that means little to nothing since this is The Sun making that statement, I doubt they dug through the depths of past Devil May Crys game mechanics to make such a claim

The Sun is one of the most credible newspapers in the UK.
wishingW3L  +   1050d ago
a newspaper doing a game review, what a joke... And to say that it is better than DMC3 the guy most be nuts. But it's understandable, the battle system on the reboot was made for the casuals.

"Combat is crucial to DmC, so you’ll be relieved to hear Ninja Theory have it spot-on. With depth and substance invested, both ---> remaining faithful to the series while adding new potential favourites"

And they are credible... Battle system is in no way faithful to the series when they completely turned it into a button masher with broken damage boost after a dodge, gave you infinite air-time, changed styles for weapon switching ala Heavenly Sword, etc.

The Sun arguably the worst newspaper in britain , between The Daily Mail and The Daily Star

Haha, I sincerely thought you linked an article about their credibility. You got me.

Did you play it?
zerocrossing  +   1050d ago
Nope, but neither did The Sun.

Played the demo though, that sucked.
360ICE  +   1050d ago
Well, it is.
I've played it, btw. And if I were to chose between this and, say DMC2, I'd take black haired, douchebag Dante any day of the week. Actually tried DMC4 again after this, and the control system now feels clumsy in comparison.

In fact, DmC: Devil May Cry isn't just a solid DMC. It's the best DMC, game of the year and the best game of all time. It's the crowning achievement of mankind and infinitely better than anything made by other species.

Ok, maybe I went a little overboard there. But it's good.

It hasn't come out yet so how would you know?
zerocrossing  +   1050d ago
Did anyone else actually play the Demo?

They make those to demonstrate the game you know? and the finished product doesn't tend to be much different in quality, that said the demo sucked, IMO of course.
fossilfern  +   1050d ago
I played the demo and I played it at Eurogamer in September and I enjoyed it. The combat system is pretty nice and theres a good video on youtube showing all the animation cancellations and stuff. If the gameplay is good then whats the problem? I have been playing DmC since DMC1 and I really enjoyed it.
Trenta27  +   1050d ago
Didn't know there was a demo. My bad.

You mean Devil May Cry 2 ....LOL!
Root  +   1050d ago
It's a step back for the franchise rather then a step forward and they have the cheek to say that

It's easier, it's broken, theres no skill involved a CORE mechanic of the old games, weapons aren't creative, characters are boring then the old ones, Donte is a douchebag now.....oh and it's not even 60fps....ANOTHER STEP BACK.

Seriously what's going on, your supposed to review the game as a sequel to the old games, if it doesn't take a step forward but rather a step back for the franchise as a whole then it's not good...mark it down.

A sequel is about improving on from the last game, seriously I feel it's all about money behind closed doors.
J-Killer15  +   1050d ago
I told you man we have to accept that gaming journalists are going to eat this game up. There's nothing wrong with that because the game was designed with a different audience in mind.

It's ok if DMC isn't a Japanese action game anymore. We have Bayonetta 2 and MGR coming out. We should be alright.

If anyone takes The Sun serisoly then you have mental problems. It's the most vile publication around.
Linko64  +   1050d ago
6 people disagreed? Enjoy a publication invading people's life? Hacking murder victims phones? Print lies about innnoncent people? Creating hysteria over violent games, condemning them only to review and praise them the next day? A vile paper filled with lies, fear mongering, disgraceful stain on humanity.

Gives high score to violent video game weeks later.
zerocrossing  +   1050d ago
Hypocrisy at its finest.

And just look at the defenders of this game use the suns review score as some kind of assurance of its quality.
vallencer  +   1050d ago
People are defending the game because they liked the demo and they like the concept. Why does it matter if they like it and are willing to defend it? It's not like it hurts you if thy do. Unless they're rude about it.
VileAndVicious  +   1050d ago
Agreed. Some people just like the game. And apparently it doesn't matter who reviews this game...because if it gets higher than a 7 people will say the review was bought..

So who really needs assurance? Those that have liked the game or those who have hated it from the start. But honestly had it be given a 7 or whatever I still would buy it. Because I've enjoyed the demo personally

I noticed that whenever someone says they enjoyed the demo, they receive disagrees or people attacking them for liking the game. zerocrossing, GIVE IT A REST. I understand why people dislike the direction of DMC but you also have to accept the fact that people may actually like the game.
pr0digyZA  +   1050d ago
Wow out of 7 reviews it hasn't scored below an 89% I am pretty surprised by that. It will be interesting when the online people can publish their reviews.
vallencer  +   1050d ago
Game informer gave it at 9/10. Their online mag is out.

The sun (UK)
Ninja Theory (UK)
Game gets 9/10
Coincidence i think not
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1050d ago
I doubt the Sun really put that much thought into it to be honest. They don't research anything lol
MrDead  +   1049d ago
So a game made in America that gets good reviews from and American magazine, news channel or site is only getting a good review because it’s made in America?

A Japanese game that gets a good review from a Japanese site only gets a good review because it’s Japanese?

after reading that short review, the guy didnt go into detail, he didnt describe the gameplay, nor did he compare it to the old games.
VileAndVicious  +   1050d ago
Truthfully he probably hasn't played the original series. There will be a lot of people who haven't reviewing this game I'm willing to bet. So most people going into this game will most likely review it as something completely New to the series.

*puts up hand* I know! I know! This review is fake too.Right? Every good review is fake right? Because you played a demo and that always reflects every part of an unfinished game?/s Gaming sites that have no problem shredding games apart and giving them low score especially games like this suddenly are on Capcom's pay roll right? Anger and hate are such unreasonable emotions. They cloud your judgement so much. Bet if it was a demo for the new Gears of War and it sucked people would be kicking you in the balls saying 'That was just a demo you @$$hole.The full game will obviously be better.You are just a Sony fanboy hater whose mother obviously didn't breastfeed you and I wish you were never born and if i knew where you lived i would come and shoot you in the head' and every other Gears fan would echo that sentiment.But since everyone was hating on DMC before it even came out it okay. You can deny it's worth and merit all you like and harp on about the demo with out your head being bit off.

Search your feelings smashcrashbash. You know it to be true.

smashcrashbash  +   1050d ago
Sorry but my insists are very sharp when it comes to buying games.I only buy games that I think will be good and it has never steered me wrong.I hardly ever go by reviews alone.I have brought games with high reviews and still hated them. And for the new DMC my insists are telling me it isn't a bad game.Not the best game in the world mind you but a whole lot better then people are trying to claim it isn't
pandehz  +   1050d ago
So my predictions are starting to come true even tho its from sun lol

This game will get loads of 9's and some 8's and it will be a fun game. Sorry haters, there are other games out there to get your hate fix tho

Btw its a reboot so think fresh and take it as it is and judge afterwards. If you're a fanatic play the older ones simple as that. Simple way to put it is that in various comics of dc and marvel etc so many superheroes die, get screwed, change look and all sorts of crap happen and then are reborn in a weird way. Cant do much about it, the creators feel like it so well what can u do? Take it in a fresh perspective. If you miss your old comics go back to it.

Its amazing how much "fans" seem to know about this game!! Shit might as well tell us the ending if you know the game inside out. Why flame on a game that you've yet to even play!?! It's just ridiculous. Change is good sometimes you know...especially considering the rot Capcom has got themselves into as of late. Resident Evil 4 marked their last great entry in Resi games. Resident 5 started the downward spiral for them. Resident Evil 6 sucked big balls. Revelations on the other hand was a legit game. So back to Devil may Cry...considering Capcoms way of thinking recently with their top franchises, I'd much rather let Capcom stop touching their MilkCows and let somebody else have a stab at it. Give it a chance.
nolifeking  +   1050d ago
Who didn't foresee this game getting high scores? I for one did and don't plan on changing my views based on the opinions of people payed to give them. when reviews stop being opinion based is when I'll give a toss about them.

"DmC is as good, if not better than any Devil May Cry title before it."

I agree 100% after only playing the demo. I loved DMC 1, part 2 was crap, part 3 back on track, but felt a bit stale, then DMC4 was just an uninspired, back trackathon. I don't know why supposed DMC fans have there titties in a bunch.. Sometimes I think they just like to read there own whining, whinging, rants on the interwebs.
Get over it, Ninja Theory are awesome developers & have simply made Dante look more manly, as opposed to the old Dante that looked like a platinum haired Elton John former lover, who stole Michael Jacksons red leather jacket & pants.
I can't wait to play more of Dmc, as the new artstyle & level designs mixed with lashing of old feeling gameplay really show Capcom made the right decision by letting a fresh development team take a crack at this one.

i got this game friday morning and ime 12 hours in on nephilm difficulty,it is the best game ive played in a long time.The first level had me thinking it was not going to be very good,but after the second level i was hooked.Swapping weapons through the d pad works really well and the way the levels swap between limbo and the real world really makes the game.ime on level 12,there are 20 levels and loads of secret levels as well, and ive been told you unlock a 100 wave bonus after completion.This game is a joy to play,and on nephilm pretty hard,some of the achievements will push the very best players to there limits.It encourages you to mix it up and get style points, for me the demo level is the weakest level so far.I no it will score high on reviews.
