The adored Devil May Cry is back

Pretty much anticipated, Devil May Cry 5 is here and it is back to its roots. After a long eleven years the game is back. It has all the things we like about the DMC franchise and the old games generally, but it also brings some good changes and makes it even more fun and captive. I think fans will be pretty pleased; Capcom did a very good job with this one. Even the original voice actors of Nero and Dante came back

The Story

The story continues where its predecessors left. We are once again enjoying the company of three unique characters: half-demon demon hunter Dante, the demon-handed Nero, Mysterious V with his badass cane and supporting characters who add more charm to the game. Let me just mention gunsmith Nico. Leading Dante, Nero and V are on the mission again to protect Underworld and fight demons. Not just the same characters are back, even the original voice actors of Nero and Dante came back. That’s pretty awesome if you ask me.

The rule of cool

Prepare for a long journey with our beloved characters and be prepared to experience a real touch of the rule of cool. This may be a good or a bad thing depending on what do you prefer. Personally, I’m a fan of rule of cool. Well, I agree Devil May Cry may be a little bit unrealistic from time to time but let’s be frank – it’s a video game and it should be a whole another different world from ours. They did a great job of balancing the right amount and making it pretty cool.

The depth of your actions

What I like about this game is that it requires imagination, skill and style. For example, it is not about how many enemies you kill, it is about the way you bring them death. It’s about slaying with style. Sure, you can find your way through the game without imagination, but your ratings won’t be high. That’s just not the way to play Devil May Cry. It asks of you to be cool. It is all about that. You need to make a great show; this game is your stage. You will learn further in the game that it’s more important how you make your moves and stylish your game is than what is waiting for you next. The sooner you learn that you’ll have more fun and enjoyment playing it.

Summary

It is beautiful, stylish, awesome and perfectly designed. This one is probably one of the best Devil May Cry series. If you are a fan of DMC franchise you will spend hours playing this impressively animated game. Also, if you’re new to the series, you will certainly become addicted. Newcomers need not to worry. The game offers a good tutorial with all the info you’ll need. I may dare to say it is one of the best action games on PS4.

Pros:

+ Three great and charming characters to play as
+ Superb combat fighting and beautiful aesthetic
+ fun of the old games with a touch of new aesthetic

Cons:

– Level design can grow a bit repetitive
