Overview: DmC: Devil May Cry is a hack and slash video game developed by Ninja Theory and published by Capcom for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. Announced in late 2010 during the Tokyo Game Show, the game is set in an alternative reality in the Devil May Cry series. It focuses on the player character Dante, a young man with supernatural powers who finds himself under attack by a seemingly sentient town known as Limbo City populated by demons.
Leo’s Thoughts: Devil May Cry is a fantastic character action game. However you feel about the baggage attached to the character and or his back story, the thing that can’t be denied is how amazing the combat system is. The franchise’s Bloody Palace mode is a shrine to this very thing. There is no back story, there is no witty/emo/awesome/terrible dialog, there is only 100 levels of bad guys and a whole lot of mayhem to be unleashed. Ninja Theory did a fantastic job of mixing up your weapon types and making enemy pairings that require you to truly approach the battle with totally different strategies just to survive. If you want to actually thrive and get a high score, then you really have to dig in to your available combo options and that is where this game truly excels: because there are many.
