Devil May Cry: 10 Reasons It’s Awesome

WC - Ninja Theory’s reboot of the Devil May Cry series was not a game I was looking forward to. Reboots are bad enough in the film world, and to see it now transpiring into video games is certainly more than a little troubling; it indicates that imagination and invention is at an all-time low, that developers are keen to simply rehash old ideas in a new style to rinse gamers of their hard-earned cash. I love the Devil May Cry series, and didn’t even really feel like there was anything wrong with the formula, yet this game proves above all else that having an open-mind is a great thing, because this latest entry proves to be one of the best yet.

The anticipated comeback, entitled (no pun intended) "Devil May Cry: 10 Reasons It’s Not Awesome"

1) Dante hasn't got white hair
2) See point 1)
3) I hate Ninja Theory
4) I don't understand the term 'reboot'
5) See point 2)
6) No enemy lock-on during combat (perhaps the only valid complaint)
7) Too much swearing in the dialogue (make that two valid complaints)
8) See point 5)
9) See point 8)
10) Did I mention I hate Ninja Theory?

Sorry, couldn't resist... :-P

Well, screw what the haters say; I can't wait to pick this game up.
