The Devil May Cry 5 demo is a mixed bag for me. It is beautiful, it controls amazingly and has some of the most stunning sounds I have heard in a game in a long time. My issue is honestly, the combat was just boring for me. You can get your rank higher by doing some amazing combos with different combinations or, you can just mash buttons and kill everything that way. Many times your combo will still get up there pretty high. Granted I have no reason to think the main game won’t provide more of a challenge, but even the devil breaker didn’t make me feel like I needed to use it that much to win.
It also felt like they were trying way too hard to make Nero this indomitable badass and he came off like that kid in high school everyone knew was just talking tough when he really wasn’t half of what he thought he was.
While I have no interest in this game any more than I have already played it, I do think fans of the series will love it, possibly more than any game in the series before it and it will attract many new fans. For me personally tho, this isn’t one I will be buying. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
