This is my first time playing a Devil May Cry game, with this being what introduced me to the series. Having never played any of the previous games in the series, all I knew was this being a hack and slash game and that it was a reboot of the series. I know this game received a lot of hate when it was initially released, because of it being a reboot, having a brand new Dante, and that sort of stuff. My review can't really speak on that as I haven't played any of the other games in the series. So my review will be based solely on this game itself and my experience with it. That said, I can definitely say I really enjoyed this game and had a lot of fun with it. The soundtrack is a pretty wild one, with some crazy music, but it definitely suits the atmosphere of the game and makes the battles and fights rather exciting. The atmosphere of the game was really great, as it didn't take long for me to be immersed into the world of Devil May Cry. From the level designs to the art style of the game, Devil May Cry's visuals definitely impressed me and just added to the amount of fun I was already having with the game. It also further impressed me as well. The fights themselves are smooth and fast-paced, with the music just really adding a lot to the fights. It definitely got me really into the fights. There's also a lot of stuff to do in the game as well. The main game consists of 20 missions, but it's more than that. There's lots of collectibles, side missions, and more. With storyline, I thought it was pretty good for a hack and slash adventure-action game, It definitely kept me interested until the end, and even wanting more. Fingers crossed that this game does get a sequel. But yeah, adding onto the game's content, there's definitely a lot of replay value, with the various difficulty modes of the game, which can be unlocked by completing other modes. Or going back through levels to collect missed items, find hidden secrets, and more. As I said, a lot of replay value. To be honest, I think at the beginning of the game, Dante was someone you could have mixed feelings for, but I think he had some great character development as the game progressed, developing into a hero that made me proud to have played.
Overall, I found DmC: Devil May Cry to be a great game that I had a lot of fun with until the very end, and yet still wanting more. From an awesome soundtrack to interesting storyline to impressive visuals and atmosphere, this game impressed me in many areas. I had my doubts about this game before going into it, however after giving it a chance and playing it fully through, I can definitely say my initial doubts where proven wrong. I'm glad I took the chance on this game, as I had a lot of fun with it. I've got no problem recommending this game to any of my friends. It's well worth two thumbs up from me.
