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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition is a worthy re-release. Not only is there a bunch of challenging new content, but we also get appreciated gameplay refinements and upgrades, most prominent of which is that fantastic 1080p/60fps presentation. The story doesn't deliver as it should, the difficulty can be forbidding, and I'm not the biggest fan of certain bosses. Aside from that, this is a bombastic, massively stylized, wonderfully flowing action game that hits all the high points.

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.

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.

Are you a Devil May Cry or a fan of the Hack 'n' Slash genre that overlooked the initial the DmC reboot? Well if so (and even if you've played the original release), then don't miss out on this Definitive Edition!

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.
