    It’s stylish. It’s cool. It’s supremely fun, fluid and rewarding. Dante’s back and he’s brought some friends. And with combat flair that makes up the finest pure-action game we have seen in a long time, we hope they stick around.

    We’ve been waiting for so long, but Devil May Cry 5 is finally here. With its great combat mechanics and spectacular action scenes, Capcom’s new game is another triumph for its now glorious portfolio.

    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.

    Capcom has done it again, re-energising a classic series like never before, and pushing the genre forward in a fresh way. It looks better than ever, plays better than ever. It's Devil May Cry better than ever.

    Capcom continue their winning pace with Devil May Cry 5. The game is everything a fan would want it to be and there is plenty of style, character and consideration made for newcomers also. Make no mistake, beyond nostalgic feelings from the past, this is the best Devil May Cry experience out there and one that should be enjoyed by as many devil hunters as possible.

    It’s not until Devil May cry 5 starts throwing tougher enemies into the mix and the main characters have most of their skills unlocked that the game really comes to life. Those who want the most out of it should be prepared for a second run at least. It may not be the best Devil May Cry — 2013’s DmC still holds that honor — but it’s a cracking action romp.

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

    dmc 5 hack and slash gameplay is about perfection

    musics are great and motived you to kill all demons with out mercy and sometimes make you crazy

    graphics in console is unbelievable with stable 60 frame rate

    10 from 10

    but about cons
    three playable character is a little more than enough for about 15 hours gameplay

    Best Devil May Cry ever if you enjoy the series you cant go wrong with great combat and a decently fleshed out story (for a DMC game) makeBest Devil May Cry ever if you enjoy the series you cant go wrong with great combat and a decently fleshed out story (for a DMC game) make this an instant hit. And for anyone complaining about the micro transactions the only ones available on the store are $1.99 US for 100,000 red orbs which is the best value for any micro-transaction I've seen and if your a true DMC fan you wont need to do this in order to have a decent time. No XP gated missions to stop your progress and no day 1 DLC, this game feels like a complete experience from out of the box. Great job Capcom. If you like over the top humor and action and good music to slay demons to then look now further. 10/10 Expand

I introduced my younger sister to Devil May Cry by letting her play 5 for the first time and she said it's the most fun game she's played on Ps4! She loves Nero. It is definitely the game of the year for me. Thank you Capcom for making such an astounding game! Expand

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
