    DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition

    The Definitive Edition of DMC is excellent.

    Ninja Theory's DMC reboot is a non-canon entry. It's basically a "What-If?" scenario. Despite this fact, it happens to be the best "Devil May Cry" ever made. A hard 'M' rated game featuring sex and gore galore, it is an ... Read Full Review
