DmC: Devil May Cry: Vergil’s Downfall Review [Capsule Computers]

Jahanzeb Khan from Capsule Computers wrote:

The much anticipated follow up to DmC: Devil May Cry arrives in the form of downloadable content titled Vergil’s Downfall, and this is indeed a direct follow up to where the original game ended. Now, just to be clear, this isn’t the true ending deliberately left out by Capcom; this isn’t the same stunt that they pulled with Asura’s Wrath. Nor is the content already present on disc with the DLC simply unlocking it... no, this is a massive download weighing in at over 2GB, featuring content that serves as a supplementary sequel of sorts.

Sounds like they're setting up the sequel.

AsimLeonheart1937d ago

They intended to release a sequel but after the sales bomb they are trapped in a limbo themselves. Anyway, I am baffled by the denial of the media to acknowledge that their highly reviewed game flopped so hard. "much anticipated followup??" Are you serious?? Maybe that is why the game has not even sold 650,000 by now. /s

It hasn't even sold 650,000? Really?

That seems pretty low for all the marketing and critical acclaim it's gotten.

@Ryder49
Yes, sales have completely stagnated and the game sold barely 12,000 units globally in its sixth week. Hell, it got outsold by Bioshock, a game that was released 5 years ago. MGR which is also a HnS game outsold its lifetime sales in the first week by selling 794,000 units. CAPCOM had to lower their SHIPPED target to 1.2 million from 2 million by the end of their fiscal year in March even though they had already SHIPPED 1 million for launch. By the look of things, the way sales have not even reached 650,000 by its 6th week, the game will fail to meet its lowered target as well. The rest of the 1 million from launch are still sitting on shelves so CAPCOM wont be able to ship 0.2 million more. The official confirmation of the scenario will be here by the end of March when fiscal year ends and CAPCOM releases its financial information and sales.

If there is a a sequel, NT will not be behind it I assure you.

militissanctus1937d ago

Holy cow. Over 2 GB? That's bigger than the newest CoD map pack.

zerocrossing1937d ago

8.5/10? Probably as representative a score as all the 9's and 10's the main game was getting...

Well I'll play this just to see if it's any good but I'm not holding back my criticism if it isn't.

Man this game is so awesome. I bit the bullet and bought it on psn after playing MGRising for about a week straight. Between the two you basically have everything you need in a hack n slash. I was impressed the whole game.

"The much anticipated follow up to DmC: Devil May Cry" Yeah right /s
