DmC Devil May Cry review | ArabicGamers

The reboot has become a pop culture staple, Hollywood consistently reboots, often and unnecessarily quickly (Spiderman) and often failing (the laughable Conan The Barbarian), even Madonna presses her reboot button every couple of years or so. As video game franchises get older it is inevitable that publishers and developers are going to want to reinvigorate their franchises to appeal to and gain new audiences. However reboots are a risky business, Fallout 3 worked, I have high hopes for Tomb Raider, but the likes of Duke Nukem Forever and Prince of Persia are prime examples of videogame reboot failure. The risk of upsetting legions of hardcore fans is great; they are not always going to be happy with the new direction a development team may take with their beloved franchise. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 75/100
