DmC: Devil May Cry looks like a game to take a chance on
I’ll just be honest, I’ve never really been into Devil May Cry-style games, or the whole Devil May Cry series for that matter. The franchise is now getting a reboot of sorts where the story now takes place in an alternate universe that is constantly shifting with a much younger-looking Dante in the simply-named DmC.
The set-piece shifting city is something that I really want to experience first-hand after watching this video:
But so far, the combat looks like something to be desired. I had the same problem with previous Devil May Cry games or the more recent Bayonetta, but I take it this is the sort of gameplay most fans of the franchise enjoy, so maybe I am just “not getting it”. Check out the more core gameplay elements in this video:
At the end of the day I am highly interested and I think it might be worth giving a shot. After all, development is actually headed by Heavenly Sword creator Ninja Theory instead of the usual in-house team from Capcom. The Cambridge-based team may be able to infuse just the right amount of western-styled gameplay elements to get me really interested in the series this time around.
Keep an eye on it!
