Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is the definitive version of an already outstanding action title. In terms of gameplay, we'd go as far to say that Vergil is one of the best designed characters that the genre has ever seen, and his inclusion alone is enough to have us grinning from ear to ear. Devil May Cry 5 is still an utter joy to play, and remains one of the greatest action games to ever grace PlayStation.

There really isn't a whole lot of new things to say about Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. It's a stunning game that added a new character, giving players something new to experience, plus various improvements to the overall experience. Ideally, it will be an idea of things to come, over one of the early games that suggested gimmicks were actually features but regardless of the outcome, it's easily one of the most impressive games you can play on PS5 right now.

just like the 8th generation version, Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is still a masterpiece hack and slash, but this time with playable Vergil and much more faster loading of the game and technical improves like Ray-Tracing. Isn't playable Vergil just enough to go for Devil May Cry 5 again in 9th generation? Yes, it is!

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition just made my 2019 Game of the Year pick even better. Vergil is arguably now the best character to play in the game, with a playstyle that's fast, aggressive and super-stylish - and best of all, it contrasts beautifully with the core group of characters.

The original release of Devil May Cry 5 was not only what the fans were asking for years but the additions to the old formula made it better than the highest of expectations. This Special Edition adds more to the already impressive package and it’s one of the best titles for the maiden voyage of your new console.

It might not change anything fundamental, but this special edition not only looks and plays better but has an impressive amount of new content too.

Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is the best way to play an already-good game, but the fine-tuning doesn’t elevate the experience to new heights.

Devil May Cry 5 was one of the best hack´n slash of the current generation, and gets even better with ray tracing, up to 120 FPS (in performance mode) and the new Dark Knight difficulty level. The new character, Vergil adds new gameplay mechanics to the original crew.

DMC5 Special Edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S builds on the excellence of the original release. It's not the most essential purchase, since you will soon be able to buy Vergil as DLC for the original release, but with some new game modes like Legendary Dark Knight difficulty and the new graphical options making the game smoother/prettier than ever before, it's sure to be tempting for fans of the series. Our original review score follows.

From a purely technical perspective, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is a triumph. Delivering gorgeous ray traced lighting, blistering framerates, and high resolution, coupled with speedy load times and eye-popping visuals, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is the best possible rendition of the game. Returning special features like Turbo mode, Legendary Dark Knight mode, and Vergil himself is sure to keep any air-juggling Devil May Cry fan happy.
