DMC: Devil May Cry Release Date


PS3 X360



developer: Ninja Theory / QLOC publisher: Capcom Official website

“DMC: Devil May Cry” reboots one of the most famous series produced by Capcom. 10 after releasing the first part, the Japanese giant decided to refresh the series by involving British Ninja Theory studio, creators of “Heavenly Sword” and “Enslaved: Odyssey to the West”. It is worth noticing that the production process was watched closely by Japanese and American branches of Capcom. Therefore, veterans may find familiar elements and new players do not need to worry that they do not know previous parts.

“DMC: Devil May Cry” takes place in two worlds – the human and infernal (Limbo) ones where hordes of demons come through the interdimensional gates. Only uncompromising and vengeful warrior can face the danger. You play as Dante, a young but difficult man who lives a bit on the sidelines of society. His unusual fighting skills prove to be invaluable when facing the threat from another dimension. The game begins when Dante is attacked by a powerful demon, Hunter and rescued by a mysterious girl named Kat.

“DMC: Devil May Cry” is not very different from the original game published 2001. It is action packed spectacular TPP slasher. The main character draws a series of spectacular strikes when fighting with demonic beings, both on the ground and in the air. Eliminate the opponents with a diverse array of weapons, including sword Rebellion, pistols Ebony and Ivory, ax Arbiter and scythe Osiris.

One of the most interesting elements of the game is the ability to activate two special modes, i.e. angelic and demonic. This feature not only helps eliminating specific types of monsters but also solving puzzles. Dante can use chains to drag interactive objects. The game developers included Devil Trigger mode known from the previous parts. It makes Dane invincible for a few seconds.

The visual layer of “DMC: Devil May Cry” presents a high level of details with intriguing levels. The action takes place mostly in a hellish limbo dimension where its specific laws are applied. Dante’s attacks are accompanied with eye-catching visual effects, while the game features dynamic dubstep soundtrack.
