    When one rival put on weight, grew a bushy beard and decided to raise his son in the Northern bewilderness, the other chose a pair of stylish high-heels a couple sizes too small and the third now only appears to smash some oversized ta-tas, Devil May Cry 5 is proving that it is too early to put hack'n slash games out of commission. It's a gorgeous, glorious game of great current interest. A crown jewel from Capcom's most skilled goldsmiths.

    Devil May Cry 5 is one of the greatest masterpieces of the action game genre. I can barely imagine any other games would be qualified enough to compare before Bayonetta 3.

    Devil May Cry 5 marks the return of an historic franchise, dictating the canons of what should be a great action game, even after many years of silence.

    Devil May Cry 5 is an excellent action game. It's an even better Devil May Cry, perhaps the best the series has seen just yet. It's aesthetically pleasing in ways I never thought possible for the series, and chock-full of love for the fans, oozing out of every pore.

    While it is annoying that Bloody Palace mode is not available day one, it is coming as a free update on April 1st. Capcom has proved this gen that they are truly the best at 3D action games. They took some bold risks with the style and realistic flavour, and it pays off by taking on this new look that has never been seen before in any videogame. Even spectators are going to be extremely entertained by the spectacle that it Devil May Cry 5. Everything feels so fresh, and the advancements in the controls and fluidity in animation makes playing this refined masterpiece so hard to put down.

    Devil May Cry 5 has some real flaws, but the awesome gameplay, underlined by its lovely graphics, and the fan-service that's displayed all around, makes it one of the great games of 2019. A must-have for beat'em all fans.

    Devil May Cry 5’s risk-averse approach grounds it as other games in the genre are reaching for the sky.

    Gameplay compensates for fairly lackluster plot and it does it with style. Dante is as good as he ever was now back with equipmentGameplay compensates for fairly lackluster plot and it does it with style. Dante is as good as he ever was now back with equipment customization and a few fan-favourite devil arms. His combat is deep and complex but a newbie might enjoy having one-style-trickster run the oldschool way. Nero's mechanical arms make up for the unimaginative and boring gameplay he had in the previous game. The newcomer V brings a new edge to DMC combat system with his summoner-approach. Most of the fights he doesn't engage in combat; instead V controls three demons performing combos similar to those of Dante and Nero, while trying to evade attacks and fight the ultimate enemy of the DMC series — camera angles.

    If you're a fan, you've probably picked it up already. If you're new to the series, it's more forgiving than ever and can serve as an fine entry point. Don't be intimidated by the combat and weird plot summaries you might see on the internet. That's GOTY material and you don't want to miss it.

    DMC has always been about style and combat rather than deep storytelling but it's still maintained the core of the ACT games.

That said, everything else is perfect. The voice acting, perfect, the visuals and music, perfect, the way every other piece of cannon DMC content, perfect, the story, perfect. The game is nearly flawless, it's just that playing as V and Nero isn't as fun as Dante, and I wish it wasn't like that. That said, DMC V ultimately is the best game in the series, and if you're a fan who has not played it yet, you should fix that. Expand

However, since Gamespot revealed that Crapcom was adding microtransactions (yes I know they can be easily ignored), I was utterly disgusted by the fact that a largely single-player $60 game (especially a spectacle fighter/character action game like this one) was going to have microtransactions. If you must buy this game, get it used as Crapcom doesn’t deserve your money, since they think you don’t deserve their respect. Expand
