Review Roundup: DmC Devil May Cry

Format:
It's one of the most hotly debated titles of this young year, but DmC

Release Date: 15/01/2013

It's one of the most hotly debated titles of this young year, but DmC - Capcom's radical reinvention of the demon-mashing Devil May Cry series - has wowed the critics with glowing praise almost across the board.

The Official Xbox Magazine UK says the game is "deep, satisfying, and just welcoming enough to let you in, before losing the smile, slapping your face and making you pay attention" in its 9/10 review. GamesTM also gives it 9/10 and praises the "razor-sharp" combat.

It's an 89% from GamesMaster magazine for what it describes as a "dazzling reboot". IGN says "This is digital action at its finest, steeped in the blood of angels, spiced with gunpowder, and garnished with a middle finger". There's an 8/10 from Eurogamer as well, in a review which points out that the title is "clearly a labour of love, a tribute as well as a new beginning".

The notoriously hard to please Edge dishes out a generous 8/10 and declares Dante's return to be the best game of its type since the universally lauded Bayonetta, while the similarly highbrow Polygon adds another 8/10 to the pile for a game that is quite simply "fast, intense and fun".

Even fusty old media like the Daily Telegraph is on the Dante train, offering up a glowing five star review. "As DmC progresses, it becomes clear that it is a phenomenal action game in its own right, with an interesting alternate take on the fiction and a sublime handle on action gaming... Ninja Theory has shown they know how to weave superb action, biting dialogue and a brilliant visual style into a wonderful, cohesive whole. A blistering start to 2013."

So, it seems that only two weeks in and 2013 already has its first must-play blockbuster.

DmC: Devil May Cry is out now on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
