Remember back in 2013 when all the internet had to get mad about was a different hair colour for an angsty demon hunter? Such a colossal fuss was made over Ninja Theory’s decision to give Dante a goth makeover that it almost overshadowed what is the best entry into the series. The superb weapon variety, combat and level design made Ninja Theory’s entry one to silence the doubters. With the Definitive Edition, we get the expected 1080p/60 fps upgrade, but it is the game’s tweaks and tools, which allow the player to cater the experience to their own style, that make this a great remaster.
DmC: Devil May Cry launched 10 years ago to critical acclaim, but caused a significant stir amongst fans of the series.
Daniel writes: "DmC on Xbox One may have disappointed many, but it also provided an entry point to a previously impenetrable series for newcomers."
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)."
