I will admit that Devil May Cry 5 has a slow start and I think that’s mainly due to the returning characters, but once it gets going, man does it get good. If you want to watch cutscenes go play another game because you won’t see many of them in this game unlike previous entries. Instead, expect a lot of action. The story while nothing that’s going to win any awards is serviceable, but what matters in this game is the gameplay.

When focusing on the main objectives, DmC: Devil May Cry is about 9 Hours in length. If you’re a gamer that strives to see all aspects of the game, you are likely to spend around 40½ Hours to obtain 100% completion. Review
Gameplay Devil May Cry 5 offers a lot of different weapons for you to use and switch between which I like because it helps with the replayability of the game. If you’re tired of using the sword, maybe it’s time to try out the trench coat for a little while. It makes you feel like it’s actually Dante or Nero under that coat too which is something I really liked about this game. They are even more stylish than they were before thanks to their new move sets. Another thing I liked was how smooth everything looked. If you hit an enemy, they aren’t going to just stand there and take it. They will slide back a bit which makes combat more satisfying as well as looking at what happens when you shoot enemies with your gun. The style system has been tossed out though because now every attack counts towards your style gauge so it’s easier for you to see how you are performing in combat. I think this was a good choice because it puts the focus more on when to attack instead of worrying when your style gauge will be full so you can use one of Dante’s new abilities.
Demon Negotiation is back, but only with some demons and not the big ones which I thought was kind of disappointing, but it is still good for getting extra items. There are other ways you can get stuff like finding items hidden in the world or buying them, but that’s about it. Dante isn’t allowed to come to Fortuna or any of Nero’s missions with him or anything which I thought was stupid because Nero would be more powerful if he had both brothers with him.
Controls Standard controls for this type of game and I don’t have any complaints about them because they work well. There is also an option to change the buttons around if you want which is always nice to see in a game like this. You can even choose between turbo or not adding more button presses for me was a must because I don’t like turbo.
Graphics Visually, this game is gorgeous. Lighting effects are very well done as are the character models themselves. There are times where it does feel like they could have improved certain parts of the visuals, but nothing major to make you think about leaving the game alone. During cutscenes, you can tell that a lot of care was put into them because the lip syncing is done really well and even though there were some cheesy lines during some cutscenes, they did a great job with this game.
Devil May Cry is a game that has terrible PR, but it’s actually not half bad. Fans of Dante and the old series aren’t going to like this game, but if you can look past Dante’s new design then you’ll be in for something pretty good. Capcom put enough effort into this game to make it stand out even though the game was in development hell for years. I wouldn’t say it’s one of my top games, but it definitely deserves another playthrough because there are some things you might miss during your first play through like finding all the collectibles or seeing if there were any secrets that could be unlocked.
