    It’s stylish. It’s cool. It’s supremely fun, fluid and rewarding. Dante’s back and he’s brought some friends. And with combat flair that makes up the finest pure-action game we have seen in a long time, we hope they stick around.

    On top of being one of the best looking action games ever made, none other hack'n slash has ever been so complex and varied, but also fun. It may be all about demons and hell, but Devil May Cry 5 is like reaching heaven.

    Devil May Cry 5 is quite easily one of the best action games on PS4. Flawless in the execution of its often jaw-dropping combat, it's a masterfully crafted title that begs to be played over and over again. Stunning presentation helps sell some of the coolest cutscenes going, and the story ties the series together with style. Among a sea of uninspired open world outings, Devil May Cry 5 is an explosion of character and laser-focused excellence. Capcom is well and truly back.

    The game is a near-endless buffet of innovative options for turning enemies into mincemeat.

    It took a while, but Devil May Cry is back and better than ever before. The balance between Nero and Dante is perfect and the introduction of the new character V is very intriguing.

    Devil May Cry 5 has its best moments when it lets its new and unheard voice roar free and wild but I think that too much time is spent on treading familiar ground of the series. Of course, the game looks more amazing than anything before it, but the tried-and-tested gameplay is only elevated by its pompous overdoses. However, the ending was a saving grace as it wasn’t entirely something I had expected. It left me in high spirits, all invigorated and happy that I saw the story through, although the journey to the conciliatory climax lacked excitement when it needed it most.

    Devil May Cry 5’s risk-averse approach grounds it as other games in the genre are reaching for the sky.

In addition to beautiful graphics and a smooth gameplay the game alsoDMC 5 has come to receive the throne of hack and slash genre back. In addition to beautiful graphics and a smooth gameplay the game also offers a good storyline with it, which is a thing a lot of DMC fans would like to see since the older games has a little insufficient storyline. Yet the producers has fixed this factor game by game. There are some surprises in the game which will make you even more curious and addictive to the game. DMC 5 deserves at least a 9 point in my opinion and every hack and slash lover must try it. Expand

I love that they gave Nero, Dante, and V different combat styles so they all don't feel exactly alike. The graphics are amazing even on a standard PS4. Music is awesome and perfect for getting me into the mood to slay some demons.

    I understand some hate the addition of microtransactions in single player games but it literally can be ignored in this game. I finished a majority of the missions with over 20,000 red orbs which was usually enough to get some skills from Nico's van, which I thought was a better trade off of the statues of time. Her entrances into each level made for a good laugh too.

    The only issue I had was the camera sometimes felt like it was fighting me every now and again but other than that the game is enjoyable and a welcome addition to the series.
