Some people really hate the new Dante. But shouldn't we play the game before passing ultimate judgment?
At the very least, we can check out a demo and see if Ninja Theory has maintained and properly cultivated the patented and hugely enjoyable Devil May Cry style. From what we've seen of the gameplay thus far, we'd say the developers have done exactly that. it looks great!
But we do have to play it and thankfully, it appears that a demo is on the way . It's definitely coming to consoles, although we don't have a solid release date, and we also find out that Virgil won't be playable this time around (he was in DMC3). However, in regards to the story, players will learn more about Dante's parents, and a few more "novelty modes" will unlock after beating the game.
Personally, I think Ninja Theory hasn't received their just due this generation. Maybe this reboot will give them the respect they've so richly deserved thus far. …I do, however, question their business practices after Heavenly Sword , as that title seemed to sell plenty well enough.
