DmC: Devil May Cry
Devil May Cry is one of those franchises that has a pattern; odd numbered games are considered great, and the even numbered ones eat total dicks. So a fifth entry in the series would’ve been welcomed as another fun installment in the series, right? Wrong. Fans were turned off by the very first trailer over Dante being a cocky douchebag with short dark hair. Oh no, sound the alarm!
It’s a shame that fans were turned off by the hair, because the game is actually a lot of fun. There’s a nice arsenal of moves and weapons to go use, some pretty inventive bosses–seriously, how many games have you fight Bill O’Reilly inside a TV or punch the Slurm worm from Futurama in the face–and some nice visual design. The social commentary comes out of nowhere, and the game may be easy compared to its predecessors, but there’s enough variety in the combat to make it a great experience. Plus you fight a giant demon fetus, and that’s always worth a look.
