terrible writing.

I wonder why they are rebooting this franchise. it's not like it deserves it, the games have always been a bit mediocre.

Player the demo and the gameplay is pretty good.

Not expecting anything from the story, thought.

I think the question we should be asking here is, is it better than Bayonetta or at least Devil May Cry 3 ? From what I've played of the Demo the answer is a no  Lips Sealed

not even anywhere close to them. combat's been dumbed down beyond recognition.

By "genuine", do they mean "officially bribed and approved"?

Anyway, despite getting some of them, I could never really get into these kinds of action games - maybe I like action RPGs better because the story balanced out the mindless slicing and dicing. God Hand was cool, but I got tired of it halfway through. The only exception is No More Heroes and the sequel, which I really liked.

Well why don't you just read this 7.5 review that was put out earlier?

Capcom'd better be looking out for Tim Langdell with all the EDGE they're putting into this.

I played the demo and I loved it. Gameplay was very tight, graphics were damned impressive and I did like the needlessly vulgar dialogs. My only gripe was the dubsteb boss music.

I watched a gameplay video of the demo and it looks pretty standard. It's been how many years and they still haven't changed the basic gameplay at all.

Probably will be the reason I won't play this, because I've already played this game a million times already.

Yeah, the games are pretty dug into a niche since they focus entirely on combat mechanics, kinda like fighting games. So that would obviously fall apart if the player doesn't appreciate it.

But I rather that than something spread out. Like I can't muster how someone would prefer NMH because all of its elements are vapid, and I kinda tend to hate open world elements because they aren't concentrated efforts at all, oops. (take that sundown)

Though on the other side, action games generally haven't had actual good level design ever.

But meep, DmC isn't even doing anything good (or unique) with its combat mechanics, and the level design screams DMC2 in its aesthetic and design callbacks (i sure love nondescript urban alleys with non-engaging enemies) so it's even worse than the standard.

on the plus side: it has dubstep boss music which means it will be just as dumb as the other dmcs.

the weird metal music in other DMCs is always a guilty pleasure of mine
