The HD remake is clearly on-trend right about now. Everyone is doing it where they can. Sony started it all with God of War, Naughty Dog followed with Jak and Daxter and Konami have embraced the idea with Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill. Capcom themselves are familiar with the concept having already released some Resident Evil titles. Devil May Cry is ripe for an update of course. A new game in the series – a re-imagination – is coming later in the year and the genre has been brought right back into the public’s consciousness in recent years with the aforementioned adventures of Kratos, as well as the lovely witch, Bayonetta. It’s such a shame therefore that the end product here is fundamentally flawed in execution and desirability.
