CVG - Most commentary on Devil May Cry has revolved around hero Dante's extreme makeover - and the implication that it's proof the new western developer, Ninja Theory, has broken the game. Which is wrong.
The redesign was ordered by Capcom themselves, to provoke reaction. This younger Dante is also reflected in the gameplay, which takes cues from Platinum's brilliant Bayonetta. Dante's moves remain slick, but they're more brutal and aggressive - less refined.
