Impressions: DmC: Devil May Cry demo photo
Impressions: DmC: Devil May Cry demo
by Chris Carter

It's been about a week since Ninja Theory and Capcom made the DmC: Devil May Cry demo available for public consumption, and I've had quite a bit of time to reflect on it, as well as replay the classic games that made Devil May Cry a household name for a direct comparison.

A lot of people asked me what I think of the game, since I'm one of the most vocal DmC fans on Destructoid. I own every game (even redundant platforms), I bought every game at launch, and I've beaten all of them on every difficulty. It's safe to say I love DmC.

Going in, I was extremely skeptical of Ninja Theory. No, not because Dante's hair is a different shade of grey -- because Ninja Theory, in my opinion, has never developed a solid action game in the history of their company.

With that in mind, here's what I think of the demo.

Rebuilding Dante in DmC: Devil May Cry
by Jim Sterling

DmC: Devil May Cry has been controversial to say the least. Ever since Capcom announced a new game, developed by Ninja Theory and starring a redesigned Dante, fans have been furious, declaring this a grand travesty of the highest order. 

Of course, that wasn't the point, merely the end result. So why did DmC reboot the series, and why does Dante sport an all-new look and attitude? Destructoid spoke with Ninja Theory's Dominic Matthews to talk about the rebuilding of a beloved videogame character, and the perils that come with it.

DmC's new Dante is blatantly better than old Dante photo
DmC's new Dante is blatantly better than old Dante
by Jim Sterling

Ninja Theory's redesign of Dante in DmC: Devil May Cry is easily one of the most controversial overhauls in gaming history. Lengthy arguments have been made, explicitly detailing why the new Dante is such a bad character, and yet others vehemently claim Capcom will never get their money again. Opinions are heated.

Opinions are, however, meaningless without me being around to point out the scientifically correct ones. For, indeed, the quality of the new Dante is a scientific fact, not something you can have a so-called "opinion" about. It's like saying the Sun is cold or that birds can't fly -- you can't have your say in this debate, because it's a matter of reality versus fantasy.

The reality is this -- new Dante is blatantly better than old Dante. If you disagree, you're fighting science.

DmC: Devil May Cry's pre-order bonuses detailed photo
DmC: Devil May Cry's pre-order bonuses detailed
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

You ready for some exciting weapon skins that don't really do much other than change how things look?! Well that's what Capcom is offering for those that pre-order DmC

Pre-order at Amazon and you'll get the bone themed shotgun, scythe, and axe. Plus you'll get access to the Orb Harvester, which let's you collect extra Red Orbs used to upgrade weapons and combos.

Best Buy's pre-order extra will get you the Golden pack, and that will turn your shotgun, scythe and axe into gold colors. You'll also get the Item Finder, and that will help you find hidden items in the game. 

Lastly there's GameStop's pre-order bonus, which sees your weapons take on a samurai theme. Plus you'll get free upgrade points that can be used to upgrade your weapons, combos, and buy items from the beginning of the game. 

Don't care for the skins, but I like some of the other bonuses, especially GameStop's free upgrade points one. In any case, can't wait for the new DmC.
