Dmc is revived after a poor fourth game and reboot with a fun slash rock action game.
Devil May Cry 5 (4 out of 5 stars).
Devil May Cry 5 is back and an improvement over the fourth game which was forgettable. And a boring reboot. Dmc is back with a lot of fast paced action and slash em up fighting. Introduces a new character V. Which he is playable as well as Nero and Dante.
The plot is decent with this sequel. The first game will always be the best. Along with the third and second game. It takes place in one day with a few flash backs. But the story never stays in one place with bouncing around between characters. The game begins with Nero. Facing against a new threat Uniziel or something like that. Which he is causing chaos and destroying what looks to be england. Then, a new mysterious character V is introduced. Who uses his magical powers of a black demonic crow and panther to fight the enemies for him. The best part of the storyline is Dante which shows up in the middle of the game. I enjoy playing Dantes missions more than the other characters. There is a twist in the story about the villain.
The gameplay is fast paced. And a lot of fun. Each character has their own combat style. Nero took a while to get used too. V was a lot of fun but got boring after a while. Dante is fun with getting a lot of new weapons and swords. The characters are fun with the storyline. Trish and Lady being back into the fold with Dante. The villain is menacing and powerful. But when his identity is revealed. I liked how the twist folds back to Dante.
The controls are easy to use and handle. I did find the camera movements to be annoying when you have to force move it to see your enemies on the other side. The graphics are awesome and amazing. The cutscenes story was great with cheesy dialogue.
Overall, Devil May Cry 5 is a good action slashing game. A lot of new enemies. New characters. Dantes game play is still the best. The plot is forgettable which is the weakest of the game. But the gameplay is a lot of fun.
