DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition Reviews
DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition brings the same great game to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
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.
Sharp and deeply satisfying combat carries this imaginative, occasionally cringe-worthy tale, but don't bother if you played the 2013 original.
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.
[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 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.
'DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition' is still a solid character action game with sharper visuals and a consistent frame rate that's worth picking up for those who missed out.
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.
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.
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.
DmC: Definitive Edition is more than just a HD remaster with better graphics and some DLC thrown in. Representing the best of both worlds, it improves on the original game in almost every way, adding the challenge that long-term fans have been craving, without sacrificing its newfound accessibility.
As a 'Definitive Edition' you're getting a buttery smooth gameplay experience, gorgeous graphics and all the extra bells and whistles from DLC to new modes and more but by and large this is the exact same game you played back on your 360 or PS3. The key question to ask yourself is if this new package is worth buying the game again, to which I'd say no it truly isn't. On the other hand if you skipped it last generation is it worth picking up to enjoy this time around? It certainly is.
Whatever reason you haven't played this, it is time to finally dive in, and for those like me who already beat it to death on previous consoles, it is more than worth jumping back into. It really is one of the best releases and the ideal way to craft a remaster.
My emotions towards DmC Devil May Cry are a mixed bag. It frustrated me. It made me roll my eyes. It made me tense. I would say the highs and lows were about even, but as I wrap up this review, a part of my brain is nagging me, telling me that I am not quite finished with this game yet.
