DmC: Devil May Cry was an absolute smash hit when it dropped back in 2012, and we here at Capsule Computers absolutely loved it. Sure there were loyal fans of the franchise who felt the reboot was not only unnecessary, but cheapened the franchise, but for the rest of us DmC was an incredible amount of hack and slash fun. Now the game has been re-released onto the next generation of gaming consoles as the DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition and comes with not only the base game, but the equally exciting Vergil’s Downfall chapter that was previously a DLC exclusive. However the question still remains; is DmC Definitive edition worth a purchase, or are you fine with your 2012 copy of the game? The answer is that if you already own the game and all of its DLC then there isn’t much new here, however the new visual upgrades, 60fps frame rate and new difficulty means that this really is the definitive edition of the game.
