Top Critic Average
DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition brings the same great game to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Sharp and deeply satisfying combat carries this imaginative, occasionally cringe-worthy tale, but don't bother if you played the 2013 original.
Only masochists will appreciate all of the new features, but they do help to round out what was always an unfairly pilloried and already highly competent action game.
Optional difficulty and gameplay modifiers let you customize the experience to be exactly what you want
In its Definitive Edition form, DmC Devil May Cry isn't just a better version of DmC--it's a bonafide hack 'n' slash classic.
DmC Definitive Edition beefs up the excellent original with better graphics, all the DLC, retuned combat, and a host of difficulty modes. If you loved the original, Definitive is better. If you were avoiding it because you're a Devil May Cry purist, Definitive is closer to the original series than ever before.
DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition gives us all of the same joys we've grown accustomed to through the years and even breathes a bit of new life to this revisited title.
Overall, this is a worthy remaster and a nice addition to the slim-pickings on new-gen hardware. If you already own the game on PC I see no reason to get it on console, but if you played it and enjoyed it on last-gen and are looking for a reason to dust off the PS4 or Xbox One, I think it's worth your time. If you missed the game entirely, go pick it up. It's absolutely worth playing for anyone fond of action games.
One of the best character action games of the last generation is now on the new consoles, in 1080/60, with all the available content and fan suggestions included. Essential.
DmC Definitive Edition's customisation tools that allow the player to tweak gameplay to suit their own style is what makes this an excellent remaster for newcomers and veterans alike.
