Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition brings the coveted action game to the new systems, but it doesn't do enough to justify its price tag.

Exactly. all Capcom is doing here is duping gamers into giving them more money. They took a great game, add a minimum amount to it, and repackaged it to call it a special edition.

When all they had to do was spend a few weeks, upgrade to ray tracing, full 4K, and unlock the framerate for the new consoles. Then, release a free update. I gotta admit though, it is making them money, even though gamers are absolutely hoodwinked here.

Agreed, I also don't think any new game is worth $70, or any expansion is worth $50. I will be buying a lot of used games this generation. Unless limited my target price will be $40 or less for every game.

Sorry but this is the world now, if you cant accept that then you wont be playing any new AAA games ever again

$40 for DMC 5: SE is perfectly reasonable for someone who has never previously bought the game, however someone who already owns it should the upgrade for free or for a discounted rate.

Never purchased this game, im thinking $40 is the right price.

Perfect for the person like me who wanted to play Back 4 Blood but didn’t want to pay Back 4 Blood

B4B is the definition of mediocrity. It feels like it should be good, but it's just...off somehow. Then you remember L4D/L4D2 and how much a remaster of that would be more fun. One day, please, Valve?

Sad though isn't it, it had all the genetic makeup needed to be L4D3 - but, as you said, something felt off. Plus I hated that card system. It overcomplicated a great formula.

gold_drake560d ago

yesss DMC 5 and DBZ fighterz, life is strange

its a very good line up not gonna lie

Exvalos559d ago

Those 3 games alone justify the price

gold_drake559d ago

they're pretty solid gaming experience imo xD

monkey602560d ago

I've never played before the storm so I'll give that a go now

gold_drake559d ago

its good, but the OG is still the best

Aloymetal560d ago

DMC 5 time to give it a try.

crazyCoconuts560d ago

I had this on my Steam wishlist... Guess I don't have to buy after all!

Aloymetal559d ago
