DMC: DEVIL MAY CRY

Capcom

PS3 (also on Xbox 360, PC)

This week on Who Do You Think You Are?, we go up-diddy-up-up and we go down-diddy-down-down while examining Dante’s genealogy...

One of a pair of twins – for twins only come in pairs - Dante first found fame as one third of pop sensations Bros. Years later his life would take a turn for the worse, discovering that Shaun Ryder is the nastiest pastie in the world and that if he didn’t do something to stop the Manc poet then yippy-yippy-aye-aye-aye-yay-yay. As fate would have it Dante reunited with his estranged brother, and with help from New Order and Stevie Nicks’ witchy spray can potion-whipping-uppy abilities saved us from insidious fizzy drink and shonky dancing with big, buggly eyes.

Or summat.

Much like a blenderisation of Heavenly Sword, Ninja Gaiden and Bayonetta, but way less hiccuppy, if you like the running and the jumping and the shooting and the slashing and the memorisement of combos then be happy. Your guns, named after a totally shit Stevie Wonder/Paul McCartney song, return, along with your sword, Rebellion. Being the spawn of a devilish angel union, you also have access to smushtational modifiers reflecting those origins, aiding in traversing a Limboistic city that’s out to gotcha-gotcha-now-I’m-gonna-eatcha. Naturally your crazy ever-evolving array of powers can be chained for combogasmic scores as you crucify brothers today.

Despite nudge-nudge-wink-wink nods to its predecessors, not every fan’ll dig the direction that DmC’s been tugged in. It’s a – hate the word - reboot, set in an “alternate reality”, so different stuff’s been tried. Want more of the same? Then exhume the old games.

If you’re not umbilically tied to the past then this is an absurdly fun and speedy senses assault with a hell – or heaven, if you prefer - of a lot of replayabilitynessousity. Would we twist your melon, man?

take me back to the start...
