Given the mixed feelings about DmC: Devil May Cry up to this point, most gamers have probably already decided whether or not they’ll be picking it up. However, if you’re genuinely interested but have still been on the fence up to this point, these recent reviews may be able to help steer you in the right direction.
Firstly, Czech magazine LEVEL awarded the game a 9/10. They praised the variety of the stages, the storytelling and the new combat system along with the refined control scheme. Since I was born and raised in the Czech Republic, I guess I have no choice but to submit to patriotism and agree with them.
Then came X360 Magazine UK, who also gave the game 9/10. Finally, Gamesmaster has published their review, giving DmC an 89/100, citing that the only real flaw in the game takes the form of the boss battles. Without having our hands on the magazines in question, we can’t give you any more specific details on the reasoning behind these scores, but it’s clear that these early reviewers are loving it.
As you might expect, however, “fans” have taken to forums to voice their displeasure at such positivity, and are happily abusing the reviewers for sanctioning the “downgrades” made to the hallowed Devil May Cry series and declaiming them as being paid off. The power of opinion, right? We should have our review ready to go within the first week of the game’s availability. Surely that’s not too late to influence your decision.
