This is a high action game. I’m not the biggest hack & slash fan so this isn’t my favorite type of game. I found the beginning to be fun and exciting. However it quickly gets very repetitive. Basically go through either a crumbling city or the depths of Hell settings. The enemies are not varied with only about 4-5 different typical enemy types. Bosses are a bit better. This isn’t a difficult game as I don’t think I died once. Overall I wasn’t that impressed with it except the music is really good. I wouldn’t really recommend. I’m selling my copy.

Taken as a full package, then, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is an impressive one. The gameplay is as deep and long-lasting as the player wants it to be, there’s always new combos and combat potential to unlock and tons of difficulties and challenges to work through; now, even more so with addition of Vergil and the new modes present. That being said, DMC5 was never perfect.

I’m not so invested I want to go back and play the games I missed, though I am glad I came back to the series. If smooth gameplay is your yardstick, then this is the definitive version for you. On the other hand, there are better graphical show pieces for the PS5 out there. Even so, I can easily recommend Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition for new and old fans alike.

As it stands, this is a stupidly gorgeous PS4 game receiving a few new buffs due to the PS5’s hardware, but it’s still the same Devil May Cry 5 from 2019, through and through. It’s still one of the, if not the best hack ‘n’ slash games ever made, however. It’s still the same over-the-top madness I fell in love with last year, so it’s still well worth your time. A worthy launch title for the PS5, that’s for certain.
