Devil May Cry
A bold reboot for the DMC
DMC will be the fifth Devil May Cry game in the series...but instead of continuing the story from where DMC 4 left off, it appears it'll be a reboot that takes place before the first game. The most obvious change--and most controversial--is that Dante's look has been altered dramatically. He's lost his signature white hair, he's slimmer, gothier, and decidedly more strung-out looking. However, preliminary videos seem to show that the classic DMC gameplay has remained intact. There's swordplay, guns, air combos, demons, giant bosses--the works. The new Angel and Demon powers mechanic could add an interesting element to the mix, perhaps similar to the Holy and Unholy powers in Dante's Inferno. But ultimately, will the story and level design of DMC have what it takes to impress? True, the series has stumbled in the past (remember the drab and repetitive DMC 2?), but I urge fans to be patient with this one before they dismiss it completely.
