Devil May Cry 5 – the killer God Of War: a review of the demo of the game

Devil May Cry 5 – убийца God Of War: обзор демоверсии игры

Devil May Cry 5 is the new game from Capcom, which opens on 8 March 2019 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC release is the first things is unknown.

The game takes place after 4 Devil May Cry which came out in 2008. By the way, in 2013, Capcom tried to reset the whole franchise and Devil May Cry released DmC: Devil May Cry. But the game is not paid off and got enough negative feedback in the press and from the players. Many people do not like the new image of Dante, and the developers wanted to attract more Western audience that they have failed.

Full version DMC 5 will have 3 playable character – Dante, Nero and V. each of them has unique abilities and fighting style, weapon and character. And V – all new to the franchise the character is not seen in any of the previous games in the series.

The demo begins with an introductory cut scenes. When we got familiar with the office (I showed the message to its description) we take control over Nero, the demo is the only playable character.

After the passage of the first “corridor” comes the next cutscene, which shows us our first enemies. In Nero there is the ability to “scourge of the devil” – its actions depend on gerbera, which the character wears at this moment. Initially the game offers us to fight with the enemies using this attack, then it all depends on the player’s choice and style that he wants to play. There are 3 weapons and the ability to attract enemies.

The demo ends after we defeated the giant Goliath is the only boss in the demo. During the battle with him we discover the full potential of the game and dynamic battle. We need to act quickly, to Dodge and to combine the movement of the character to defeat Goliath.

Compared to the game God Of War (it became the G. O. T. Y. 2018), the sequel to Devil May Cry in some moments looks perfect. In the last game the camera is positioned just perfect – it can be controlled, and the character is not closing nearly all the space during the game (which had some problems in GoW). Both projects from this example relate to the hack & slash genre, where combat system makes sense of gameplay. Also in the demo there is a leveling. To upgrade Nero, almost the end of the demo we have the opportunity to spend all the “red crystals” that we collected during the passage of the campaign. You can buy some new skills or a complete set of gerbera.

Since the full game has as many as 3 playable protagonists with unique abilities, is very interesting to see their differences in gameplay and the passage of the campaign.

Capcom themselves said that the campaign game will take about 24 hours. As for singleplayer project is sufficiently small.

Devil May Cry 5 is the sequel to the already iconic slasher, was first released exclusively on the PlayStation 2 in 2001. The highly anticipated sequel, and the game series Devil May Cry cannot be ignored and forgotten.

By the way, in January, has released another game from Capcom – Resident Evil 2 remake. It got great reviews from critics and was warmly received by the players. At the moment, Capcom make the right decisions, and their next project could fail.
