Devil May Cry 5 – PC Gameplay with Storm!

A good 8 years after the last title in the DMC series was released, has Capcom returned to glory with Devil May Cry 5?

Devil May Cry is a pretty well-known series in Capcom’s roster behind Megaman, Street Fighter and Resident Evil, and you’d be hard pressed to find a gamer that doesn’t at least know of the series.

The Devil May Cry series is well known for it’s fast-paced and often intricate gameplay, and DMC5 is no different. During my first hour with the game I got to grips with Nero and his “Devil Hunter” style, and it’s somewhat reminiscent of his controls on DMC4. His unique feature was his devil arm and, *spoiler*, at the point I was playing he no longer has it, so our companion Nico makes him a new one called the “Devil Breaker”.

While it takes a while to get used to a lot of the mechanics, the game does give you an auto assist should button combinations become tricky. I would definitely say it’s easy enough to play but difficult to master. The Devil May Cry Series has always focused on “stylish” gameplay, stringing together attacks in different ways gets you a better score, something which adds extra replay value for those who are intent on getting the highest ranks possible.

DMC 5 also features a photo mode if you feel like taking a screenshot of a cool moment or a beautiful backdrop which you can then share with the rest of the world.

The infamous Bloody Palace returns as a free update in April for those who like punishment. The Bloody Palace is a series of battles that take place over a ridiculous number of floors; DMC3 had 9999, just to give you an example of the sheer size of the mode. It’s unknown how many floors DMC5 will have.

Lastly, Capcom is also debuting a brand new feature called the “cameo system” which enables players to encounter other players and battle alongside one another in a new form of cooperative gameplay.

In all it feels like a satisfying return to the series, I had a lot of fun playing it and seeing some of my favourite characters again. The mechanics feel familiar to me, and with the new auto-assist feature, it won’t alienate new players. I’m both excited and anxious for the release of the Bloody Palace, will you be tackling it?

KitGuru Says: Easy to play, difficult to master, it’s a resounding yes from us. A welcome addition to the DMC series!
