DmC: Devil May Cry is a reboot of the Devil May Cry franchise, and serves as a retelling of Dante’s origin story. Dante’s been given a new face, outfit and personality, as has his demon adversaries and the very city he lives in.
DmC does its best to emulate and streamline the frantic, free-form combat from past titles, but does nothing to expand or innovate it. Some of gameplay changes are easy enough to get accustomed to and affect the combat positively, making Dante and his arsenal of special attacks more accessible and easier to perform. Unfortunately others changes affect the combat negatively by creating unresponsiveness or outright inaccuracy, which makes fighting feel clunky and sluggish at times.
While not on-par with earlier titles in the series, there is still fun to be had with Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry reboot, DmC.
