DMC: Devil May Cry Demo Review
So I just tried the demo for DMC on the Xbox 360. As you don’t really get a feel for the story (they kind of just throw you in some random part) I really wasn’t expecting a in-depth part. I consider this demo more along the lines of “learn the weapons, button placements and combos before the game releases”.
One thing that sparked my interest are the combos…damn, I actually like them. The fact that you can switch weapons on the fly like that (like previous games) seemed more fluid than before. But I will say that juggling the demons while trying not to get hit to get your “S” rank is hard, but you will get the hang of it.
The random chick with a star (is that what that was?) on her forehead seemed annoying even for a demo. And I’m preparing myself to see that character cosplayed at cons lol.
I didn’t like the Silent Hill-esque vibe with the environment. It seemed a little out of place. Yes there was some of that going on in the previous games, but damn… I thought a little girl was going to come out and tell me that I was going to die because I turned 18 (Silent Hill reference).
The music, when not in battle seemed decent. But this “high octane” wannabe rock music seemed forced this time around. It may work for some, but not for me.
Don’t get me wrong, I will still get the game. This is JUST a demo. Maybe things are different. I have liked the series before. Maybe this emo Dante will be bad ass enough to say “Well done Twilght Dante…well done!” (Mike)
