Capcom's long-running action series transports its gothic themes to an alternate reality where contemporary issues such as terrorism and financial malfeasance confront a more youthful and conflicted version of the series' primary protagonist Dante. DmC Devil May Cry is set in the city of Limbo, where players can once again dispatch demons through a mix of explosive shooting and visceral hack-and-slash combat. As the spawn of an angel and a demon, Dante is also in a state of limbo, and gamers can modify attacks at any time by engaging his special angelic or demonic abilities.
Developed by Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword, Enslaved), DmC was designed to offer higher production values and a more involved narrative than previous entries, while still retaining the series' signature style and frenetic action. Players will learn more about the history of Dante, interact with familiar characters like Vergil and Mundus, and engage in classic combat that earns souls for use in upgrading health, items, and skills, and gives bonuses for particularly stylish combos. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
