how many times should we talk about this, this title is out of cannon, totally a spin off, so don't compared this title with original Devil May Cry....the developer already said so from the first time,...this is a SPIN OFF of Devil May Cry, thats why the title is DmC....its not a remake....

Devil May Cry 4 run its course? BULLSHIT. There is so much....so MUCH more they could have continued with. Like for instance, a game dedicated to Vergil (for once). Would it sell? I have no idea, but they could make a game showing what Vergil went through to go to where he is today. His downfall with Mundus, but then his ultimate freedom after Dante and Trish took Mundus out with his spirit still floating around. (Sounds dumb in a lot of senses, but its still an idea). OR even better, a game about the great Sparda himself. Go back to the roots, way before DMC 3 and explain ALL THE HOLES they left with the story and show how he met Eva, what happened to split the family apart, hell they could even explain Nero in there (assuming he's not Vergil's son and just part of the Sparda bloodline). HELL they could have even thrown something new in and say Sparda had a brother, or cousins or SOMETHING to span out to DMC 5. There is so much they could do and yet they just tossed it aside. It's bad enough what Capcom is doing with Resident Evil, but now to take another iconic series of their franchises and just flush it down? 


What Ninja Theory has come up with, is great. I have no gripes anymore the way I used to because I finally got myself to the point that I could sit back and go, "well its Capcom's fault for FORCING Ninja Theory into the position they are in to re-create the franchise, but under bullshit specifications. I'm going to give NJ the benefit of the doubt since Capcom can't seem to pull the sticks out of their asses." The only group I'm pissed at is Capcom.


Ninja Theory, I've given you the benefit of the doubt, and I have NOT regretted that decision. Thank you, for fixing up Dante's design a little bit so he didn't look so "trashy emo". Thank you, for throwing little tid bits into the game that are references to the previous games. "Tony Red Grave" has NEVER been referenced in the previous games so thank you for putting that as an achievement mark. That says to me that "hey, this company is actually paying attention and actually CARES about this series." That says alot, not just in the big things but in the little things. Thank you, for doing a beautiful design on Vergil and for (SPOILER)...........not killing him  off. At the end I thought he was going to be killed, but he wasn't. And THANK YOU for making him an asshole LOL. When the first trailers for him came out, introducing Vergil, it gave the impression that he was just some nice guy who loves his brother and wants to "save the world". That's nice and all but NOTHING like the original Vergil. But when I finished the game and saw how untrue that was, I was the happiest person on the planet. 

Thank you for putting hours and endless detail and hard work into this game under bullshit circumstances from Capcom. You did well! I'm a graphic designer myself and have been playing games since I was 7, so I know a good game when I play one (despite the hate I originally had for it when I first saw trailers for the game). 

There are only a few gripes I still have with it, but other than that, fantastic job. Please do reconsider the script writing for how the characters talk. I get its supposed to be reflective of modern society, but it doesn't flow that well. The F-bombs and the constant "pieces of shit" I can tolerate (since I cus alot myself), but if that's what the characters say more than 10% of the time, then it just comes off as "lazy cheap writing". Put a little more thought into it please. It's boring to listen to them talk when that's most of the time, what I hear. Also, Vergil's deigns is beautiful, but WAY too much blue. I mean seriously....blue latex/dentist gloves? That doesn't flow with the outfit at all. It's too much. Reconsider that design lol. Why not make the gloves white to match his hair or something? I'm already making jokes with my friends how Vergil is now the "Dentist of Sparda!" lol Don't get me started on the red sweatshirt. Just...no....

@Ghost-Eye Well first of all, if they did that then they would have to do that for violent movies as well, including theaters. If the parent didn't know what they were getting that is their fault, and what people who don't do violent things after they play video games? Not as simple as before is it? Don't those people have a right too? Why don't we actually try and help people who feel lonely and miserable? Why don't we try and help those with mental disorders? That seems like a much more positive way to deal with this issue of gun violence than anything I have heard so far, from politicians to the internet.

British and Irish accents are much cooler than American ones, except southern American accent, that one rocks.

Not saying this new Dante is better, haven't played DMC yet, but the older Dante was just plain stupid, I don't understand why people are so upset for losing such a boring character. The reason I liked the older devil may cry games was because of the action, and not the story or characters.

LoLz.. This DmC Reboot's "Bad-Mouth-Dante" is NO MATCH with any of the previous "Bad-Ass-Dantes" of Devil May Cry 1-4.

DMC3SE is the best ever with no doubt then DMC1 and DMC4.  this new version seems to has new touch of dmc.  I hope this game becomes more enjoying and we don't lose enthusiastic during playing.  Hoping for Good story contents.

I love the layers of graphics, especially in mixing and crossing the to planes, that being the physical realm and spiritual realm.

"greatest thing, same as the old one". With huge platforming sections, completely different fight system, different characters and story and different look. Stopped hearing it at this point.
