    Great story

    I really enjoyed this game. It had a cool story dealing with Angels and Demons. I've never played the originals, but I used to watch my boy play them. So I knew how the game was. A minor complaint I had was the speed. It moves kinda sluggish without the hyper/fast mode turned on. Turn that feature on from the beginning. It'll then have a speed of regular games. Having skin options from the start was kinda cool too. There is also an additional 6 mission game that allows you to play as Vergil (Dante's brother). It's definitely best to play his after you beat the regular game as his takes place afterwards. Do take notice that this is a sort of "button mashing" type of game. It's built upon you doing combos to beat the creatures in hopes of trying to get a good grade/score. Good game to get if you're new to the franchise, and I feel it would also be good for those that have experience with the old games. I know some of those people didn't care for this, but that's because they're the type of people who doesn't like "new".

    Ok, the first reviewer is a totally biased. I'm looking at you Stephanie. This game is awesome on its own. The only reason some people hate it is because it is not like the Devil May Cry they know when in fact they SHOULD know that this is a unique take on the series. It is a fun action adventure game with pretty cool combat. The Definitive Edition adds more cool modes and tweets gameplay and unlocks all the DLC for you already including playing as Vergil. You get to have DMC1 costume for Dante and Vergil's DMC3 costume for nostalgia. There's a new Hardcore mode and Turbo mode with should feel right at home for most fans. People just need to learn to move on and not hold onto the past games as the "right" way of making DMC games. The music is good and fits with this punk gothic style of a game. Overall, I give this game a 5/5.

    If you are new to DMC you may like this game, but find it short-lived. If you are an original DMC fan, like me, you will probably be disappointed. The game as a whole was pretty short. This included both Dante's story mode and Virgil's downfall. The story seemed a little cheesy compared to the other DMC games and the game play was definitely less exciting. If you are a melee fan you will probably find the game entertaining, but not nearly as interesting as the other DMC games. The Definitive Edition has decent graphics and interesting weapons but, in my opinion, weapons and game play peril in comparison to the previous DMC games. I finished the game quickly and without much interest other than wanting to complete the game. I was excited for the Definitive Edition, but it left me uninspired and slightly regretful.

    There's a point in DmC: Devil May Cry where everything just falls into place, a point where--after being mollycoddled through hours of gentle combat--you're finally let off the leash. And at that point, chaos ensues. The gates are opened, once-timid demons become tremendous horrors, and Dante transforms into a fighter of glowing theatrics and tense technical wizardry. Immense, over-the-top combos flow from the fingertips, unleashing all manner of visually enticing carnage with a precise, fluid feel. So entertaining is the combat, in fact, that it's easy to overlook what a wonderful achievement DmC is as a whole.

    Truly the Definitive Edition

    During the current generation of systems we have seen a lot of ports that claim to be upgraded, remastered, definitive, complete etc. In some cases they were just cheap ports with little effort put in. As a gamer who owned and enjoyed Devil May Cry on the PlayStation 3 I was apprehensive to repurchase the game on the PlayStation 4. I'm glad I gave it a shot though, the game runs very smooth at 60fps with nice upgraded visuals. The additional DLC was nice to have at no additional cost outside of this package. The game is challenging but fun once you begin to learn the combos and get deeper into the experience.

    Excellent combat rebalancing

    DmC Definitive edition is an excellent combat rebalancing of the original version. The changes to the game play make it a more skill dependent and thus highly reward game. The extra modes like Turbo and Hardcore combined with the 60 FPS create a twitch based, balls to the wall action experience. The game is as hard as you want it to be or as easy as you want it to be. A great remaster that is a benchmark as far as remasters go. The stories and characters are still mediocre and the visuals are just decent for current generation hardware but the stylish combat makes up for it. I highly recommend this for fans of stylish action combat games.

    Great Game, Great Value

    The common view on remastered and definite editions of games is that are cash grabs by the companies, involving minimal work and/or thought. While I can't speak to how true this is as a whole, DMC - Definitive Edition is not the same game in a new box. Featuring FHD (1080P) native resolution, 60 FPS gameplay, and updated textures, the game looks and plays better than ever. If you enjoyed the game enough to think it deserves a replay, this will give you the best experience possible. If you haven't tried out DMC at all, this game is well worth the price of admission.

    I need the points so this is my review FOR NOW but I will add on to it once I get a feel of the game. I will say the graphics looked promising on youtube which is part of why I order this. It was 9.99 used so I ordered it for pick up at the store to avoid shipping fees. These video games are not cheap but this price was a fair steal and I like games like this. I gave it a five star rating because again it looks promising but we'll see. I would recommend others to cop this although I have yet to play it. TO BE CONTINUED . . . . .
