DmC: Devil May Cry may be taking a battering from some gamers who will never be happy with the new look direction of the game, but that hasn’t stopped Ninja Theory’s reboot from storming straight to the top of the sales charts, replacing the likes of Black Ops 2 and FIFA 13 in the process. What will be the next step to try to bring the game down we wonder?
We told you in the past that the game is receiving zero mark scores on the Metacritic website, in the user review section where any member can sign up and post an opinion on the game. A quick glance again on the page, and it’s still a sad case on the user reviews section, with a score of just 4.0 out of 10 compared to the more positive 86/100 score for critic reviews.
With the game top of the UK charts, it’s clear to see that a lot of you are still enjoying the game and enjoying the fact that Dante has now taken on a new lease of life and will probably be seen once again in his younger form in a potential sequel. Capcom has said that they are fully behind Ninja Theory on the reboot and even the original Devil May Cry creator has pledged his support as well.
There will always be the minority though, and in this case – one individual and 25 other followers who have decided to ask the White House and President Obama for help in overturning Ninja Theory’s decision to create a young Dante. They complain that it ‘violates their right to have a choice’ between the original games and the reboot, adding that Obama should ‘pull it off the shelves due to its insulting nature’.
Good luck with that. At the time of writing, they still need a further 99,974 votes to get an official response from the White House. Let us know if you have bought the new Devil May Cry game and what your thoughts are on this attempt to get Obama’s attention.
