A cynic would be justified in thinking this edition still has its work cut out for it trying to bring back DmC fans who held the reboot in contempt.

With more than enough content to justify its $40 price tag, DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition represents the best version of one of the more underrated titles from the previous generation.

"DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition" not only tweaks and enhances the overall experience of the 2013 game, but adds in small dashes of greatness that elevate the title to new heights. Although a mouthful, the title is expertly descriptive. If you want an action game that is truly the "Definitive Edition" of the 2013 entry, as well as a great core "Devil May Cry" experience, this collection reigns supreme.

Still, if you're a fan of the previous game and are intrigued about the extra difficulty and balancing for the re-release as well as the higher resolution on new consoles, getting this version might still be worth your while. And if you love fast-paced action games and didn't have a chance to play the original reboot, then DmC's Definitive Edition will prove to be devilishly fun.

Clearly, Capcom and Ninja Theory put their time into creating DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition. Between the upgraded visuals and new features and modes, the Definitive Edition is worth buying for fans of the series or complete newcomers. There is enough new material here to allow players who have already completed the original game to go back and enjoy the Definitive Edition, and, besides the few cutscene errors and the poor writing, it is a must-buy title.

Similar to its story, DmC's remastered version of Dante embraces the things Ninja Theory's kept and changed from the old Devil May Cry formula, making the unification of heaven and hell as fun as it gets in the land of Limbo.

Also, you punch a gross version of the Slurm monster from Futurama in the face, and that's worth putting the money down for DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition all on its own..

DMC: Definitive Edition puts a decent game back in the limelight with some additional content that launches it up above decent and into great. Also there's a moment where a demon yells "fuck you" and Dante yells "fuck you!" and then the demon yells "FUCK YOUUUU!!!" and now you get to experience that in glorious HD resolution at sixty frames per second in the year of our Lord two thousand and fifteen.

DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition proves that DmC is still brilliant. A slight resolution upgrade, frame rate boost and additional content make for a good value package, but if you've already played DmC on last-gen platforms, you may want to carefully consider re-purchasing this, despite it remaining deliciously devilish.

There's no question DmC is a great game that any action gamer should play, but if you already have the original versions, there might not be quite enough additional content and changes here to warrant a re-purchase right now. However, if you missed out on DmC, then the Definitive Edition is a must have.

A fun and approachable reboot, with the occasional texture pop-in and a fairly short (if memorable and polished) campaign and plenty of extra content.

A few minor issues persist, but a number of new additions, combined with enhance visuals, balance changes and repackaged DLC, make this the best version of DmC: Devil May Cry available. Fans of the original game will find a lot of new content to sink their teeth into here, but new players are the one who will benefit most from Ninja Theory's latest.

As a welcome gesture to the original classic, the Definitive Edition also includes nostalgic Dante and Vergil costumes. Overall, if you missed DmC when it arrived in 2013 and fancy a hack'n'slash game along the lines of Bayonetta or Ninja Gaiden, then this PS4 edition is certainly the best way to experience the game.

Whatever your feelings are of the original DmC, credit has to be given for the sizable chunk of new additions made to this remaster.

Most of what made DmC Devil May Cry so enjoyable has been altered; some of it for the better, some for the worse. While the fluid and highly enjoyable combat remain intact, the restructuring of collectibles and scenarios such as the final boss tarnish the experience.

Some people say the devil is in the detail, but the attention the developers have paid to the detail here is absolutely and utterly heavenly.

If you missed out on the game the first time around then DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition should definitely be given your consideration, especially considering the low price point. A fine example of a remaster done right (Although one must ask: "Where the hell are all the true current gen titles?"), DmC is a fast paced action game that offers a wealth of customisation option to appease even the most ardent critic of the game.

'DmC: Devil May Cry' was always destined to be the game that wasn't enough like the numbers 1,3 & 4. But with the passage of time, the new Dante and his enjoyable combat can now be considered as their own fun action set, worthy of a hardcore audience. Add in the full offering of DLC (like the playable Virgil), the impressive visual upgrade, and the new modifiers, and 'DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition' is a great pick-up.

DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition even has a fair amount of content that is impressive and even pretty glitch-free, but when the core game is so poorly thought out, it's best to just skip this altogether. Best to wait for Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition for PS4/Xbox One later in the year.
