If you are planning to pick up the highly anticipated Devil May Cry Reboot, you’ll be pleased to hear that the first reviews for the game have already gone live in several publications. Online reviews are not available for viewing for quite some time yet of course, but there’s nothing stopping print reviews from being available. Based on two reviews that we’ve seen, the early signs are good, with high review scores perhaps justifying the long wait for the return of Dante.
If you have already downloaded the demo on console, you will have an idea on what the all-new Devil May Cry universe looks like with a younger version of Dante that initially drew in considerable criticism towards Capcom and developers Ninja Theory. After three years of development though, DmC: Devil May Cry is almost ready for release and will be available to buy on January 15 for Xbox 360 and PS3, and a week later on PC.
For those of you familiar with the official Xbox 360 Magazine and plan to pick up January’s issue in 2013, you’ll be pleased to hear that inside contains a review for Devil May Cry and even better – a very pleasing 9/10 score. The news was revealed thanks to animator Bryn Richards who worked on the game for Ninja Theory, but it looks like fans will have to wait a little bit longer before being able to actually read the review.
Elsewhere, another Devil May Cry publication review has gone live, this time from Swedish magazine LEVEL who have again given Devil May Cry an impressive 9/10. Thanks to some additional information on Neogaf, there are some details from this particular review, as we hear that DmC veterans ‘will feel at home’ and that the control system is ‘even better’ than what was previously available in the older games.
We expect that online reviews won’t be available for around another two weeks, but this is a great indication that the reboot may well be worth picking up. If you were previously uninterested in the game, let us know if these two review scores have now caught your attention.
Have you played the Devil May Cry demo and intend to pick this up, or do you still prefer the old DmC games with classic Dante?
