DmC: Devil May Cry Review | Thunderbolt

Thunderbolt writes:

"By now it’s safe to say that we should all be on the same page when observing the supernatural/superhero, demon slaying genre. It’s not so much a ‘genre’, but a cliche, and it’s one of the most accessible faculties for telling a “story” where depth isn’t so much as a concern compared to the lightshow of sex and violence accompanied by occasional pops of mercurial dialogue. Unabashedly, the Devil May Cry franchise embraces the gimmicks and created a few white-maned ones of its own. But as the series is tied to the self-disorienting motions of modern anime narratives it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that a good many people just stopped caring. And so the torch was passed westward to Ninja Theory to keep the furnace burning." (DmC: Devil May Cry, PS3) 7/10
