Still waiting patiently for my review copy, but don't let that stop you. The praise is nearly unanimous.

That isn't true; DMC fanboys who have yet to play the game hate it with fiery passion.

I'm curious about this. I really liked Devil May Cry 1 and 3 but skipped 2 and 4. So really don't have strong feelings about the reboot as long as they story is okayish and the gameplay is fun.

No joke, I had someone tell me they refused to play the reboot because the writing was terrible...as opposed to the Shakesperean wit of the older games, I guess.

The demo is lots of fun but this will probably be $40 in a month or two so I will wait!!

Eh, I'll wait for a price drop, since Bayonnetta pretty much is the crown jewel in the "japanese action game" genre for me.

Ive heard good things and reviews, but i'm amazed that there's been more controversy over the UK special edition of the new dead island over this game...since it seems it has an scene thats in very bad taste.

I tried Devil May Cry 1 when it first came out, but it wasn't really my thing. However, i really REALLY enjoyed Enslaved, so I'll give this a try when it gets cheaper.

As a big fan of the original DMC series, and of the hack n' slash genre in general, this is-so far-one of the best games I've played, like ever. There's a lot I want to say but I'd prefer to just play it now and finish the rest of it. But I will say that the level of depth and style in the combat system is fucking staggering, and visually this game is utterly brilliant and bizarre and unlike anything I've seen; it has this demonic Psychonauts vibe going for it.

 

PLAY IT NOW! I don't care if you buy it or rent it or whatever, but everyone here needs to play it asap.

I'm waiting for the PC version next week.  I hear it's the best, and I like my combat at 60 fps.

My new favorite video game exchange of all time from the Xbox demo.

 

Demon- Fuck you!

 

Dante- Fuck, YOU!

 

Demon- FUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCK YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUU!

post #12 of 24

I'm not a DMC fan.  Never liked the first, always never liked Dante.  Played the 4th, but just not my thing.

 

DmC is pretty rad, though.  Dante might be an asshole now instead of a twat, but hey.  I prefer angry dudes as heroes to ultra mega super can't stop won't stop cocky motherfuckers.  They did a good job with the mocap for the cutscenes and it's ridiculous and serious in all the right ways.  And it's fun to play!  Fuck the DMC fans, they were assholes anyway.  This game is pretty dang good.

 

Level design is crazy good.  Looks great, all the colors and fucked up architecture.

Sounds like they one-upped the Arnold/Bill Duke Commando exchange.

Okay, maybe not.

I'm grabbing this based soley on the fact that my favorite music producers did the sound track (Noisia). I've never really played the games so I'm curious.

This game is essentially like playing a living breathing heavy metal album cover; and I mean that in the best possible way.

Picked this up on the way to work. Played a couple of hours while waiting for the next build to cook. Satisfyingly awesome game, shss don't tell Bayonetta I'm cheating on her, that really has great sound work too. Given the reviews and forum chatter dismissing the writing on the game led me to believe Alex Garland and Ninja Theory parted ways after Enslaved, but there he is in the opening credits. Anyone finish it, what are we looking at in terms of length (not including multiple harder playthroughs)?

Maybe 8 hours?  Didn't take me too long.  Fun-ass game.  The writing is fine, I mean, it's not amazing, but it works.  I think some people just don't find stuff like the "FUUUUCCCCKKKK YOOOOUUUU!!!!" exchange "quality."  Only DMC game I've ever liked.

 

The 3rd boss is FAN-TAS-TIC.  The level design and use of color in this game is some of the best I've seen in quite awhile. 

post #18 of 24

I dug the hell out of this, and I'm saying that as someone who loved Devil May Cry 3 to death.  DmC has some fucking style.  The art direction and level design are beautiful, and the combat is a lot of fun (although without that catharsis from winning a punishing battle that DMC3 had).

 

This may wind up being my second favorite game in the series, right behind Devil May Cry 3.

I think I've gotta retract my initial statement. This is not like a playing a heavy metal album cover, rather its more like playing through a heavy metal music video. The goofiest most beautiful and bizarre, and just generally fucking awesome heavy metal music video ever made.

 

The only real sore sopt I've found with it is the cliche "trade-off" cutscene that starts chapter 15, good lord that was horrendous, thankfully the platforming set-piece that proceeds it is utterly phenomenal.

This is the game I wanted Brutal Legend to be.

I do not know if I would say that, but this is definitely the game I wanted the entire Devil May Cry series to be.

Its so fucking good. Review within a week.

I think I was in love when Dante ended a boss fight with that line about being a son of a bitch, and not cringing. Dante said something COOL. This has never happened.

I particularly loved the Bob Barbas boss fight. Yeah, the social commentary is a bit on the nose but the visual design of that whole sequence is stunning. I have heard complaints in some places that there are too few boss fights, but the ones that are there are so well designed I do not mind. Definitely preferable to fighting the same boss 5 times (hi dmc 4).

The news anchor guy had shades of V for Vendetta, nice colorful sequence (though the Lillith level was even more colorful) similar to Saints Row and Lollipop Chainsaws techno/Tron inspired levels. Finished this last night. Great game. Writing wasn't so weak as reviewers were often citing, at least not too cringeworthy but mostly due to decent vocal performances from the actors. Loved that the game continually handed out new weapons to your arsenal, even at the late stages, that increased your combo making abilities. Great sound design, varied art usage; if I remember it it will probably end up on the inevitable best of 2013 list - can't say where but is in consideration. So bizarre with the end credits with the dev team fingering the camera guy - are they fingering me or do they just really hate the camera guy or the dmc purists who sent them death threats.
