About this game
Content Rating: Mature
Years have passed since the events of Devil May Cry 4, and a lot has happened. Young demon hunter Nero has lost his Devil Bringer demon arm… but hey! He’s now heading his own branch of the demon-hunting business Devil May Cry. To make up for that lost arm, and keep his style rankings up, he’s enlisted the help of expert craftswoman Nico, a brand new character in the series, to lend a hand and build different types of prosthetic arms that unlock new badass combat abilities and devastating powers.

This is the kind of game that deserves to be explored, replayed, and mastered, and I’ll be playing it for a long time. We don’t always get what we want; sometimes we can’t rent the cool game, or we have to wait a decade for a sequel to a game we love. Sometimes, even when we do wait, we never get what we want. But every now and then, our faith is rewarded with something spectacular. Devil May Cry V is that thing. Like Nero’s incredible theme, it bangs.
However, there’s no way I’ll be forgetting my time with Devil May Cry 5. The gameplay shines, lovingly adjusted and reworked just enough to blow away fans and newcomers alike. Sure, the story may just be okay, the treatment of Lady and Trish is a shame, and the soundtrack can be hit or miss. This is all secondary to one of the most insanely detailed combat systems and ridiculously fun gameplay flows out there. Simply put, Devil May Cry 5 has hit nothing short of the jackpot.
Devil May Cry 5 is a love letter to those who’ve stuck with the series since its inception. The tale it weaves is well told and the revelations that come from it are fun to follow. The finely-tuned combat is hard to pull yourself away from – tinkering with the varied movesets of Nero, Dante, and V will keep you entertained long beyond the adventure’s end.
