1. Better combat system
DmC has a far better combat system than the old games ever had; even better than DMC 3 and 4, two of the higher points in the series (at least as far as gameplay). Transitioning between weapons, triggers and guns are seamless. It’s easier to rack up combos now than it’s ever been before. I used to never be able to get an SSS rank in combat or on a mission, even on the simplest of difficulties, but now, as I move up to harder game modes, I can still manage to pull off an SSS every so often while fighting. Not only that, but Ninja Theory had the right idea keeping the weapons to a minimum. The older games had a slew of strange weapons, some of which I never used, because, let’s be honest, a guitar that shoots bats is lame.
Those are the top five reasons why we consider this reboot of the Devil May Cry franchise a better game than the older titles. What about you? Do you agree with us and have more reasons? Do you disagree and want to tell us why? Let us know in the comments, here or on Facebook, or tweet at @VGUTV to give us your opinions.
