StickSkills said, "Reboots are dangerous. Fiddle with a loved property and you stand to incite the ire of its devoted fans. This was just the challenge at hand when Ninja Theory began work on a reboot/prequel of the classic Capcom action franchise Devil May Cry. The first wave of discontent came when the developer revealed a grimier, punk take on the main character’s style–a younger Dante with dark hair. It seemed like Ninja Theory didn’t know how to handle the beloved character. However, now that the completed package is in the hands of gamers, I am happy to report that Ninja Theory knocked it out of the park, delivering a stylish and edgy reboot and an all-around fantastic action game."
