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 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.

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.

DmC: Devil May Cry - Definitive Edition is one of the more thoughtful remasters on the PS4, and its emphasis on modifiers means that you can more or less tailor the experience to your tastes.

[T]he bottom line is that DmC is a beautiful, bold, and supremely enjoyable videogame in its own right. It deserves to be praised.

DmC: Devil May Cry is one of the best hack-and-slash games out there, and now it's even better thanks to a higher frame-rate, fresh difficulty settings, and a slight speed boost. If you didn't get around to slaying demons with Dante back in 2013, now's your chance to do so.

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

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.

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.

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 lives up to its name and corrects many of the wrongs that were present in the original. With faster gameplay and a load of replay value you, it's hard to argue that it isn't Capcom's best port in recent memory.

Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition may not improve much in the looks department but the gameplay remains as great as it was last gen (Vergil's Downfall notwithstanding). If you haven't played it yet then you absolutely should do so.

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: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition keeps all the things that made DmC: Devil May Cry great and improves them for the current generations of consoles. While there isn't a terribly large amount of new content, Ninja Theory's gritty Universe is excellent enough to warrant a second playthrough.

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.

The best game in the DmC series looks fantastic on PS4. A great action game and one of the best re-releases of the past couple of years.

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.
