Tin Salamunic: Say what you want about Dante’s new design, but Ninja Theory’s Devil May Cry reboot offers a more comprehensive adventure than all previous entries combined. Sure, the storytelling is just as laughable and the writing remains cringe worthy, but it’s the gun and swordplay that ultimately define DmC, and in that regard, the remake outshines its predecessors in almost every way. The new Dante may be a juvenile cocky hipster, but is he really that different from the old Dante? Not really. Do people actually remember how atrocious the original dialogue was? Probably not. The point is, DmC may be a new start for the series, but the overall tone is relatively unchanged. Whether that’s a good or bad thing is up to debate, but the important thing is that the overhauled combat provides an infinitely better experience.
DmC: Devil May Cry launched 10 years ago to critical acclaim, but caused a significant stir amongst fans of the series.

Pratyush writes- "According to fans, the wait for the latest DMC installment was torturous; 11 years without a sequel to a game that not only defined a genre but even after all this time, stands atop every other game that it inspired or was inspired by. DMC5’s trailer sent every person who loved video games into a frenzy. More than a decade later, an icon of gaming was returning after being dragged through the mud *cough* DmC *cough*.
DMC5’s reveal trailer brought with it all the cheesiness that was popular in the early 2000s and felt gamey for all the right reasons. Add to that, the persistence of my colleagues that the DMC games (and Ninja Gaiden) were must play action titles and their sarcastic jabs at me for having only played the (shitty) reboot; I relented. Before the release of DMC5, I went back and completed DMC3 and 4, only missing out on DMC1 because it kept crashing on my system (and 2 because that was in a, uhhh “league” of its own)."
