Still Playing: DMC Devil May Cry

EDGE - Why we’re still playing Ninja Theory’s brash, bold Devil May Cry reboot. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Why so much damage control for this game?

because MGR (over half a million) just outsold DmC in one week. Do you really expect them to sit around and not do anything about it when they are getting paid to say good things? And plus, Edge gave MGR a 7, while DmC received an 8. This is just a way to stand up for the score they gave and not making themselves a complete ass.

The media has always been fascinated and sympathetic with Ninja Theory. Everybody was mourning the poor sales of Enslaved when it flopped. Now they are doing the same for DmC while raving how great it was. The game was a mediocre game and a bad DMC game. It has flopped, people have moved on and that is the end of it. The NT ball hugging by the media should be over now.

Hardly surprising MGR outsold DmC.. doesn't matter what audience you target, Ninjas > Emos .

Emo? Dante is actually a very well written character compared to the original. His looks aren't "emo". The only reason people call him emo is because of his hair. HIS HAIR...ffs.

The original Dante was nothing but cliche Anime drivel. Nothing but a 1D character. Obviously I'm going to offend the fans with this, but DmC and DmC 2 are both crap games.

Granted I havn't played 3 yet. And 4 is also still on my to-play-list. But after the first 2 games I really wonder if it's even worth it.

@sidar how the hell can you possibly judge Dante as a character when you've only played the first game that was 12 years ago and still had his personality rough in the edges, and DMC2 which was a drastic serious overtone for his personality.

It is with DMC3 (the best entry in the franchise) and DMC4 you truly see the Dante everyone loves. If anyone is truly a one dimensional character its the new Dante with him portraying the whole bad boy personality where he feels like he doesn't need anyone at all even though in reality he truly does.

If you can manage to list things that makes this new Dante breath life into the character feel free to PM me.

Edge is always overly supportive of home grown software.

Edge is a British mag.

NT are British devs...

No coincidence.

DmC was cool, but I preferred MGR:R in everything from dialogue to graphics to gameplay. I liked DmC's level-designing, though.

it's DmC, not DMC dammit.

Yup, he can't spell. Also, nothing about gameplay. Mostly about the past games, the story, and a bunch of bullcrap praising Ninja Theory.

I'm surprised "BTW My Name is Dante" isn't here supporting his favorite game.

This article would have made sense.........10 years down the road.
