With Capcom's Devil May Cry 5 right around the corner, is it finally safe to admit that Ninja Theory's DMC: Devil May Cry reboot was good?
It was great man, just felt like a step back with the characters and it was a bit easy, music wasn't as tight as the earlier games, but gameplay was smooth.. won't miss it, won't hate it either, decent attempt.
DMC was trash. Devil may cry 5 on the other hand is gold. Cant go wrong with classic Dante
So happy DMC got higher ratings than the garbage that were all the older ones. Apart from the first one, what a great game that went on to inspire successors like Bayonetta and God of War.
I know DmC is better than Bayonetta 2. That’s all I know.
Any dev that would be as arrogant as to put his face on a character that's pretty iconic such as Dante for a reboot... Yea no. I'm not playing you cynical trash.
The original character in Quantom Break was Cevat Yerli I suspect.
Edgy, but playing games that are good regardless is more entertaining. lol.
It wasn't a great game. It had boring far too easy linear platforming sections, combat felt way too easy and the story and dialogue was cliché and bad. The only thing it had going for itself was the use of neon and some decent boss designs. The crazy thing that reviewers forgot to mention was that the best bosses in the game were ripped off straight from Suda51 games like Lollipop Chainsaw and Shadows of the Damned, so u can't really give them credit for that. It wasnt broken, it wasn't ugly, but it was a far cry from the series best games.
It's always been a good game. It just felt out of place.
Oh come on...it was shit Look at DMC 5 and see how awesome it looks then look at dmc, you can see the difference straight away. DMC 5 looks like it's pushing the series forward and living up to past DMC games while dmc was a step back in every single way.
DMC 5 is the new game. It's supposed to look and be better.
At one time dmc was the new game and it was worse as a dmc game then DMC4 so...
DmC came out 5 years later than DMC4. It ran at half the framerate and even looked worse.
Despite the fact that past DMC games (aside from 2) played both ran and played infinitely better.
It was a fun and solid game. However, the story, characters, etc, they were shit. Take away those cut scenes and game itself was pretty enjoyable. Overall though, due to those characters, story, etc, yeah, it was pretty shite. What makes it worse is I tried to play the Remaster last year and I couldn't even skip that crap. Needless to say I didn't get too far before shelving it and leaving the game to memory.
I agree that the story is crap. I think the visual design is pretty neat at times. The combat imo is not great when compared to past dmc games, id put its depth on the level of a Suda51 game. But it is appealing in its simplicity.
DMC5 is using the same art style as DmC. This just goes to show that the people complaining about DmC were mad over nothing. If DMC5 had the same art style as the older games then maybe people complaining about how DmC looks would make sense.
No, not it's not using the same art style lol. I just watched both trailers and about 10 minutes of gameplay back and forth to male sure I wasnt crazy...def not the same. Even if you took out that ugly filter in dmc they still look wildly different
@WitcheRivia .. i agree .. the gaming community is full of lying hypocrites
I loved DMC it was better than 4 and 2 no questions about it. Played 5 and wasnt impressed. Maybe I outgrew the series but boy would I love to see a dmc 2 one day
100% agree. I thought Dmc had smoother combat and controls than 4. I also like how the same combat music track did not play over and over. Frankly i doubt many people here even played DMC.
Good game and being a good devil may cry game are two different things. I'll stick with Capcom's original designs and original game under Hideki Kamiya and Shinji Mikami thank you. I'll never play it. Even if it's given away for free as a Plus game, I wouldn't download it.
... so you're saying you never actually played the game... !?
I'm guessing most of the haters never did. As a long time dmc fan myself I remember play the first devil may cry and loving it. I remember hating the second part. I remember loving 3. And then hating 4. When DmC got announced I was weirded out that it was a reboot but gave it a chance anyway and loved it. I'd go as far as saying it's my favorite in the franchise.
the issue was the series didnt need a reboot
Thank you. It didn't need a reboot. It just needed Capcom to care more about the franchise. Sure, losing Clover Studios would have been tough. But that's their fault for letting those great developers go and disbanding them. We see they were still capable of making great action games like Bayonetta, Vanquish and Neir Automata. Devil May Cry didn't need a reboot. I agree. Especially from that punk Tameem Antoniades thinking what he believes is cool. Devil May Cry was already "COOL."
No. You’re “COOL”
Clover was long gone by the time DMC4 came out even. By the time DMC4 released in 2008 Bayonetta was halfway into development. DMC4 at the time reviewed the best & sold the best. Capcom just made all kinds of stupid decisions last gen trying to make everything gritty and western. Bionic Commando (the dreadlocks one) They were going to give Strider a reboot that was gritty and generic before we got 2014 one. Mega Man was going to be gritty and an FPS game. They had western teams make TPS Resident Evil games. They tried to make RE6 more western. Lost Planet 3 was, even more, westernized meanwhile Japan got EX Troopers. DMC was just another series on their checklist to needlessly westernize and it all backfired. The times they gave a dormant series a new entry that worked? Is when they stuck to its roots like Strider & Bionic Commando RE-Armed. Go figure. Capcom this gen with MHW,RE2,DMCV has learned the balance finally. Oh and hey Mega Man 11 sold well.
Segata, Was Hideki and Shinji at Capcom? The MAKERS of the franchise? The makers of the style? The makers of the juggle mechanic? But those same individuals went on to make cool games after leaving. Or should I say closed? Same with Sega. Do you think the last sonics were as good as the creator Yuji Naka? No they weren't. It took fans to help Sega get back on track with Sonic. DMC is nothing like I believe the original creators would have intended. And was not worth a reboot. How many movies, TV shows, songs, etc were better when someone else brought their own vision of what is supposed to be good? None. None are better than the originals. You mentioned westernized and that's exactly what Capcom did to Devil May Cry because it sure wasn't Japanese style or flavor that Ninja Theory did to it. Which is why I don't like it. Mega Man did well. But I'll still take Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X over it anytime.
No they were gone by then. Those members formed Seeds and one other company in 2006 and merged in 2007 to create Platinum Games. So Kamiya and all them never touched DMC4.
I've always stood by my statement that if this game had nothing to do with the DMC IP but retained all it's style and gameplay it would be VERY highly praised. Hell you could even have the exact same story just different names and it'd still work as a new IP.
Nah. The story was trashy, the dialogue was worse, and the gameplay garbage at times.
It isn't like the franchise is known for strong story telling and dialogue.
Devil may cry 4 story was much worse at least dmc had a cohesive story that made sense
It wasn't, but you may claim that to your heart's content.
What arrogance. So your opinion is a fact whereas anybody that thinks otherwise is just claiming something that's untrue? How convenient.
Wow, so what frame rate did the game ran on? Does frame rate depend on your opinion?
"This game was good and you can't admit it" seems a good bit more arrogant to me than "that's not true but you're entitled to your opinion" but what do I know?
One of the reasons the series is loved is because of cheesey over the top story and the campy dialogue. haha
Second favorite Devil May Cry title after 3
DmC was fun
I've been playing the PS3 version over the last couple of weeks. Have to admit, I quite like it. I beat default difficulty and am around chapter 8 on Son of Sparda. I never finished DMC4 - hated the backtracking. Anyway, without comparing it to other DmC games, I'd give this 8/10 Cons : - Some of the writing is pathetic. F you, no, F you!!! Assume this is Alex Garland's level. - Too much life loss due to cheesy somewhat trial and error platforming sections during first run through the game. Not so bad during second run through as you have a good idea of what to expect. - Some / most of the edginess is too forced and not followed through. On the fence : Demon mode seems to be better than Angel mode in general, making Angel mode a tool to improve style rank rather than a mode you really want to use. Pros : - While simple I quite like the storytelling - Like the world and visuals - I like the combat, but I'm not a hardcore DmC veteran.
It's safe, but is a lie
It just wasn't a DMC game.
That is what I was going to say. It wasn't what I would call a bad game, but it didn't feel like Devil May Cry. I also don't think anybody liked this version of Dante.
Most reviewers spewed this all over the internet when the game launched.
nah maybe a few more years.
I've been saying that when it released!! I just couldn't understand the hate for the game. It took me months to finish DMC4 because imo the game was boring & I had to force myself to finish it.DmC imo was a fresh coat of paint the series needed. I had no problem with this new Dante & I really liked the production,art style,graphics & gameplay. I'm definitely buying DMC5 next weekend it looks like another fresh coat of paint including the game imo looks like it may have taken some small elements of DmC.
+1 on DMC4 I couldn't even force myself to finish it. Backtracking through the same areas that weren't even interesting the first time around. The remaster was on sale recently and I thought about buying it; think I dodged a bullet.
DmC didn't pique my attention after trying its demo. I can't say the demo Capcom gave us for Devil May Cry 5 particularly impressed me, but at least it made me feel like it is a proper DMC game. I am just torn which between Devil May Cry 5 and Sekiro I will purchase in March.
I never played any of the other games, and DMC was my first intro to the characters. I had fun with it. Can't wait to try out Devil May Cry 5 when it comes out and see what canon Dante's like. Plain and simple, like what you like, and who cares what other people think. You're the gamer & the one buying the game. You're not out to impress the world. You're out to have fun and entertain yourself, so if you like something, so be it.
Do you mean DMC or DmC? There is a difference to us DMC fans.
It was never good. Lame level design. Enemy design. The absurd edgelord attitude. The combat was okay if it was it's own game but as a DMC game the combat was not good as pulling a S rank was very easy. The writing was really poor. The dumb f bombs and Vergil dick joke. The game just sucks.
I do agree about the Vergil joke, and Dante letting it fly seemed pretty out of character, but by that point his character was changing so it kind of made sense.
I enjoyed the combat a ton. I kinda like how edgy it can get. Characters develop. Capcom kept pulling the rug from Ninja Theory but they did literally the best they could with that.
Yeah it was great People just mad it’s a reboot
DmC was always a good game because the developers listened to fans backslash and refined thigs here and there. But the problem of DmC was the fucking westernizing virus in these Japanese companies head. But the gameplay was awesome. Reboot is unnecessary, they could do some kind of prequel.
It always was a good game. They just took a unnecessary direction with character design and the approach/presentation to the story. It made it easier for people to ignore how good the gameplay itself was because of this. Castlevania Lords of Shadow suffered the same criticism from people who never even played the game, when it was actually damn amazing.
LoS was good. Enjoyed that.
Lords of Shadow was EVERYTHING DmC wishes it could have accomplished.
DMC was atrocious. I don't know what they were thinking turning Dante into that trash design. Devil May Cry 5 is the redeemer.
Is it safe? Lmao you ask that like you’ll be tarred and featured and tortured if you admit you enjoyed this game
It's a decent action game but a subpar DMC game. Also the story and writing were trash.
I thought it was a great game. I loved the mix of techno, dubstep, and rock music, I loved the concept of limbo and its beautiful and bizarre levels, and the combat, despite being simpler, was still fun an addicting. And I'm the minority when I say I actually liked this version of Dante. He was no classic Dante, and he needed more work in DmC, but I found him to be likable. His hair turning white at the end of the game perfectly reflected off his "Not in a million years" moment at the beginning of the game, and showed just how much he changed throughout his adventure. He was not perfect, but I didn't find him to be downright terrible either. However, that being said, it was not a good Devil May Cry game. As much as I enjoyed it, it felt out of place, and unnessesary. And even though it was a beautiful game to look at, it was way too different. You could give Dante, Vergil, Mundus, and others characters different names, and it would had been a completely different game with DMC inspirations. It's not a good Devil May Cry game, but it's still a great game. I enjoyed it for what it was, and it needs to be given a chance with an open mind.
Gameplay was fine, the dialogue was terrible and they new dante didn't help. I got to play it when it was on ps plus, wouldn't have played it otherwise. Devil May Cry 5 on the other hand is a day one for me.
Its a quality game.
No need to admit. It IS a great game.
that reboot was a failure. way to nicetalk a dud.
Has the game changed since? Then probably not.
i love DmC and no one should be ashamed to say so
DmC was lackluster and a failure of a DMC game. Why would anybody admit that it was good?
