Hello Just played the game today on Pc what I can say I like the new story and how the character plays also the game has amazing graphics if you have a kick ass rig.

And also I have found how to unlock framerate it's very easy you can have unlimited FPS by going to Nvidia control panel on game custom settings find Devil may Cry 5 there in the list it's after Dmc 4 can't miss it and Force off vertical sinc and off tripple buffering and there you have it PRESTO!!! Unlimited frames!

You can basicly do this to any game witch has limited frames. And further more to enhance the video quility above what the game can give you turn up the AA to 32x-Q CSAA and texture filtering to High Quality also anisotropic filtering to 16x + Anti Aliasing gama corection on + FXAA on or some people might prefer it off and last but not least AA transparency to 16x and some prerendered Frames if your desktop can take it and the game will look Freackish Amahing!

Ofcourse to be able to use theese settings you have to have an High end rig with 2 Nvidia Graphics cards in SLI.

I only brought the original back in the day because of Dante, therefore, I dont have ANY reason (yeah gameplay bla bla bla... I´d rather play bayonetta for that) to buy this new one

I only accept it if it becomes spin off like intended. If not well. Capcom, you're not going to see my money.

"only selling a third of what Devil May Cry 4 did back in 2008." Nothing more to say.

They redone old Iconic character that's why people lost interest . It's like put in Skyrim  Mickey Mouse and call it Dragonborn .

As a reboot it alienated a lot of its fan base and that hurt sales. However good it is it was always going to face an up hill struggle because of that. Recession is a factor but that doesn't explain it sell one third of DMC 4

Fuck all this shit they changed the fucking story Virgil doesn't want to rule mankind he just wanted more power because he felt weak when his mother die and Dante has a freaking shop why did they let him sleep in a trailer naked HAH my name is DMC for Devil may cry wich is one of my favorite games and Rebellion is the name of Dante's sword one of my favorite weapons I bet you guys feel the same thank you very much.

Wait what? gret graphics? They look like shit DMC 4 has better Graphics...or ART styles. Level Design? boring but  All Dmc has boring level design so no so much complain here. Smoth plataforming? Ok the original series has Sucky platforming, ill give Ninja theory that. Boss Battle Sucks majoer ass in previous DMC the boss battle were the best part ( FOR MY) of the game. Variety of Gun SUCKS. DMC 3 has  so far the best weapons, here...just THE AXE is good, the other are sucky. 

I Could give a fuck about Dante new look, heck we lose dante For Nero in DMC4 and i was Piss, atleast we play as him 8 missions but whatever the damage was done.

Technically the game is great, great graphics, great level design, smooth plataforming and awesome looking boss battles and the combat while being on the easy side feels smooth with a wide variety of guns to use through the game. But the problem here is not the gameplay itself but the characters and the history. The plot of the game isn't bad but isn't great either which is a shame cause it seemed to be one of the strong points of the game and the new direction they are trying to take with the series, same with the script. 

The big mess is the direction they took with the characters, none of them are even a shadow of what they used to be, Dante it's the kind of guy you want to punch in the face due to the high amount of douchbaggery that goes out of his mouth during each cutscene, Virgil is not the honorable older borther of Dante anymore (those who have played the game already know what i'm talking about) and the new girl is just meh, she only seems to be interested on sucking Dante's weenie despite all the crap he puts on her. 

The icing of the cake was probably that little cutscene where a white wig fall into Dante's hair and he looks himself on a mirror and says "Not in a million years", i'm guessing that was Ninja Theory saying to the fans fuck you people, we can do with the character what we want cause we are the developers!. Well the fans have payed them with the same coin, not buying the game.

What UK charts? Has something else been released in the passed month or so? Is it competing with itself?

DMC is a very good game...but if choosing between the two iterations (xbox or ps3), definitely go with the xbox version.  MUCH better FPS.

I thought this game was awesome, hopefully it opens up at #1 in the US as well. I've already gotten 100% completion on every level, beat all the secret missions, and am now replaying through it on Son of Sparda. It pays homage to the old series well while also carving it's own path. I can't wait for a sequel.

@wizzman2332 Fact is if you have a high end gaming rig with 2 Nvidia cards in SLI, the last thing your thinking of playing is the new DmC game lol.

@Shinobi-Neo DMC4 was the worst DMC game i've ever played!!! (and sold even more than DMC3)

P.S: Yes, DMC2 is even better

@DMC-REBELLION They changed it yeah, as it is a reboot, they can do whatever what they want, they just to have to face the consequences. Anyways the story kinda reminds now our own world, as Virgil being our Anonymous.

@CRAPCOM1926 Well ofcourse you don't like the graphics the console graphics pale in comparison to PC graphics.

I bet you never saw a high end gaming desktop performing on an 2560*1440 Led Monitor with 3 latest gen graphics cards runing under the hood! Well DMC will look amazing on sutch a rig like 3 way SLI with Nvidia GTX680.

And yes i agree with you on only one thing the console graphics suck on any level compared to sutch a high end desktop Pc. I really like the new game and can't wait for the 25Th release date for imba 100% superior graphics on Pc I already preordered it on Steam. Consoles wil never catch up with desktop performance.

@CRAPCOM1926 I'll accept that the graphics of dmc4 is quite neater than this dmc, but in terms of level design, this one is much better, the boss battles are quite nice; in fact, in all the dmc series, its only dmc3 that has really great boss battles and cool b-rated comedy. The boss battles in this game was great, not the best- great. The guns were exactly what has been in all dmc series from the original dmc to dmc3, dmc4, nero's gun (blue rose), and this dmc so i dont know what really sucks to you.


Also, the weapons and moves are just an improvement of the original dmc4 which has replaced the "devil bringer" with dmc's sword pull. 


Have an open mind for the game. its cool - not dmc3 cool, but still cool.

@Llns1993 @FreedomPrime That is the dumbest statement I have ever heard. How dumb are you. that's like say I should love the terrible transformer movies simply because I loved the cartoon as a kid. You are a idiot.

@maitkarro @DMC-REBELLION No you people must understand they are not looking for the buyers interest they are doing what is best for the company wich is really bad I mean like the DMC had 4 parts and the story was really internisting and didn't ninja theory ruin enough games thank you very much.

@pozium @CRAPCOM1926  they removed styles, that alone took away what made DMC stand out from other H&S, they removed lock on that means about 3 or more times lesser moves, not to mention that you can't even decide what you're ffffing attacking !!!

add to that the game has no challenge at all and the whole blue weapons kills blue ennemies, and red kills red is totally stupid.

they also butchered almost every character in the series from mundus to dante to vergil ( although the new mundus isn't that bad, also vergil had the worst of it :( ) and everything in DMC lore.

@pozium @CRAPCOM1926  NOT MEN IS NOT FUKING COOL. THE BOSS BATTLES ARE NICE??? WTF MEN? are out of ur MIND?? THEY SUCK, they are repetitive,not fun and easy THATS THE PROBLEM THE GAME IS TOO FUKING EASY.  The weapon Design SUCKS they look that they were made by a child, also has less COMBO, YES IT HAS LESS COMBO but the game is more easy TO Do COMBOS u dont need lightning reflexes like in preivous game WHICH I DONT.  Dude u have 1 A Sword that is called rebellion but IS NOT rebellion althought it has the clasic moves, these is the most decent weapon in the game. The gauntles just hit hard and fuking slow with less combo moves than previous games atleast it have the dragon punch that i love to do.

That axe, just and axe nothing cool about it, it just hit hard, the Scythe is lame you spam X X X X  or XX----XXX and u have some nice combo but it hit too little so no point using it unless there are enemys that can only be killed by angel weapons. Thats other thing enemies INMUNE To ALL  MINUS ONE OF U WEAPONS, FUCK THAT SHIT. OPEN MIND FOR A PIECE OF TRASH LIKE THESE GAME IT IS? I BEG U PARDON BUT CRAPCOM DOESNT DESERVER OPEN MIND AND LESS NINJA THEORY THEY SUCK ASS. If u like the game fine men good for you, u are a person EASY TO ENTERTAIN.

@evil-zodiark

Yeah, I missed the styles.

One thing I noticed is also the lack of contextualization regarding the weapons: remember how cool was the Nevan in dmc3? A demon/vampire lady which transformed in your hands in a guitar-sword that can summon bats! She even had some interesting, brief back-story. The other weapons also had their "reason of existence": Ice cerberus = ice nunchucks. Agni&Rudra = themselves et cetera... Here *SPOILERS* you defeat demonic reporter Barbas and you get what... angel-ninja-stars?! Why?! It doesn't make any sense!!

@CRAPCOM1926 @pozium There's no point arguing about this. I've played the game and I liked it. The Dante was totally unlikeable at the begining but became much better at the ending. I didn't really like the Virgil character though, I thought the Virgil in dmc3 was waaay better. The combat system works well for me. The weapons felt nice and all-in-all, I think Ninja theory did a pretty good job, considering. 

Personally, of all the dmc games I've played, this one ranks after dmc3 and dmc1 in terms of storyline, combat, and character design.

As for difficulty, it was quite easy and short, but still fun- enough.
