As a fan of the original Dante, I’m still not sure that this reboot was completely necessary for the series, but DmC is undeniably fun, in large part perhaps due to the developers’ faithfulness to the original games. Appearances aside, the game still feels quintessentially Devil May Cry. Everything else is basically icing on the cake.
Story is the biggest issue, where DmC stumbles the most. Still, despite my griping, I found myself easily forgetting about its flaws while caught up in the moment – the experience of something all at once familiar and new.
