DmC Dante Reboot Reborn | Devil May Cry Review -- BagoGames

There have been many reboots over the past number of years, and I cannot remember a time when there was such an uproar from fans of a series as there was with the announcement of DmC. Initial response was very negative towards the new look and design of the game, mainly with the emo-esque redesign of Dante. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4.5/5

I thought DmC was OK, not as good as the Devil May Cry 1 and 4, but not a bad game overall.

Really, cos I loved 1, I'm loving this so far (i'm on mission 6) I thought 4 was ok, but not great.

Did you play 3??? Easily the best
amaguli  +   660d ago
Haha, yeah I absolutely loved 3. I forget to put it down, and by the time I realized it I could not edit my comment.

Whenever a reboot comes out the first question people ask is "why?". A lot of people asked that about the new Spiderman movie. I saw it, absolutely loved it. Sometimes Reboots are good and sometimes their terrible. Depends.

yeah but spiderman still looks like spiderman.

well obviously capcom felt that the series had gone a little stale, otherwise they wouldn't have requested NT to reboot the series.

a lot of people like to rag on NT because of DmC, but i think people have forgotten that:

a) capcom wanted NT to "piss them off" when coming up with the new art direction for DmC.

and

b) capcom gave the green light on the project.

the reality is that despite all of the bellyaching, this game has repeatedly received positive reviews, and just because the whiners can't handle change (or understand the fact that it's a reboot, which never really adheres anything from the previous iterations) doesn't mean it's a bad game.

Unless those reviewers are going to buy another 2 million copies then Capcom's got a little problem.

You can call them whiners all you want but you have to understand those are fans of the game and it is something they love. If your marketing campaign consists of a) "pissing them off" then someone on your marketing team is an idiot.

I think that this reboot seems to be well done. I think that reboots are getting a bad rap because they seem to be the popular thing to do bot in video games AND Hollywood. Many are unnecessary and improve on nothing and are just cash-grabs. DMC seems to be on the right track though.

Besides that, I think that Ninja Theory is a vastly underrated development studio. I LOVED Enslaved and it went largely unnoticed.

I noticed it..... in the bargain bin where it belongs.

More overrated.

Or rather, the mouth of their lead dev seems to have a habit of writing checks their skill can't cash.

I mean they do good rather than great work, but talk as if its great.
