To be honest I didn´t even cared about this franchise until now. But since this one has released, I am completely addicted to this game as it is. DmC is really one of the most gratifying games I´ve been playing recently. And for once, the main character is not annoying. He´s not too dumb, not too innocent, not too overly nerd, not overly agressive, he´s smart and cool. I really liked what they did to the series and hope they keep it this way.
Well said, I'm with you on everything you said. I loved all of the old DMC games (barring 2). But the old Dante was not a good enough character to miss over the character of this Dante. I'd rather they continue this reboot to actually have a sense of character progression and story.
We will always remember, recognize, and love the original Dante for who he was. But Devil May Cry has needed this for a while. We know all about who Dante is in present day, but his history has always been somewhat spotty, with gaps that were left unfilled. Developers may have done this purposely to add speculation, but it may have also been just a flaw in his character design. Who knows? I preffer to believe the former.
Anyway, I love it that DMC is showing us the young, Dante. I feel like this game has successfully filled in many history gaps. I also think that having played this game and knowing a bit more about Dante's history, it will enhance the experience when playing through the previous Devil May Cry games. Cheers.
Yup, he was way better than the new one. Given, they're absolutely on par when it comes to fighting skills, but that walking "youth agro emo bullsh*tt*ng on everything eff the system I rather work alone"-THING has NOTHING on the cool awesomeness that the old Dante was, in appereance AND attitide AND behaviour.
He was a guy mouthing off as well, and usually I absolutely hate characters like that, but the old Dante really made me totally like that aspect of him, completely accepting it as his personality, whilst the new Dante....well...see above.
Also, SPOILER WARNING FOR DMC1 ENDING!
When the "old Mundus" killed Trish and Dante cried......goddammit, that showed way more what he is about, his personality, his human and angel side, than all "supposed to be deep lines" that DmC offers out from the new Dante's mouth
