GameVortex - DmC: Devil May Cry Review

GameVortex - I never understood the fan backlash against Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry. Sure, it's a reboot, but it's of a franchise that has been wildly inconsistent, at least in my opinion. The first game (which started life as a Resident Evil project) was something of a watershed moment for the action genre. It combined the puzzles and gothic environments of Resident Evil with a stylish and wicked-fast combat system. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 85/100

What's missing from DmC is the challenging combat (now easy to the point of being patronizing) and the entertaining characters (now completely unlikeable and flat). DmC has, opposite of what was advertised, terrible writing and plot which doesn't work at all. Granted, the original games' writing wasn't something exquisite, but it was lighthearted and a lot of fun.DmC's gameplay not only lacks challenging combat, but is full of other annoyances, such as no lock-on, tedious platforming, constant interruptions by boring cutscenes, etc., etc.

And yeah, I understand that some people might prefer the easy combat and might even like the story and characters. But those people should also understand that there are people who like the opposite and therefore don't like DmC. People who liked DmC bought it, people who didn't like it didn't buy it. And the results are in.
