DmC: Devil May Cry Review | Bag of Games

Dante is a prick, the man is wholly unlovable and a complete waste of space, but then again, so was I in my early 20s. Just like me at that age, he and his latest game are filled with potential.

DmC is more than just a cash-grab reboot of a popular franchise; it’s an attempt to create a cohesive narrative in a series which has continually tried to reinvent itself since day one.

Though there is the occasional stumble in this latest attempt, it never falls and should be commended for trying in the face of some very vocal opposition. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.0/10

Pretty stoked to hear that this turned out well, I worried there for a while.

As an aside, I still can't think of Dante without thinking of Clerks (or Alighieri).

I was never a huge fan of the series, so I had no qualms about them rebooting it.

New Dante's 27. Your post has the wrong idea about his age.

Where did you get that information?

I just looked at Wikipedia and they say he's a teen:

No where in that article does it say "he's 27 years old"...the guy does say he's a decade and a half younger than "me"...did you actually just do the math based on the guy's current age minus 15 years? Cause that's hardly a way to establish a canonical age..unless I missed something?

Other people are quoting 27 but no one has given a source

So Tameem saying Dante's 15 years younger than Tameem is isn't good evidence on the age of a character in Tameem's game...Who knew?
