This is an Amazing revamp of this long time series though it has been underselling and getting an undeserved bad rep from bias fans... I'm a long time DMC fan myself and I had my reservations about the new Dante but giving it a chance really played off.. The changes fit into the new story and without giving anything away, as the game progresses I think hardcore fans will be pleasantly surprises by some changes he undergoes.\n\nThis game has Tons of replay value with unlock-able modes, hidden missions and concept art. The revamped battle system lets you switch between weapons on the fly and use them to string together insane new combos and the style rating system is a blast, rewards creativity and makes you want to replay levels to outdo yourself and others online. With the new DLC's longtime fans can get the costume and hair from the Dante of old or several other possibilities if they just can't get past the new punkish look he sports in this game.\n\nThis fresh spin on the series has great visuals and a very cool gritty urban art style, a fantastic story and polished to near perfection game-play that never ceases to be fun and engaging. While it's a reboot of the series it retains the spirit of what made the original series so great and improves it with a deeper story, fighting mechanics and replay value with loads of extras. In my opinion I would say that this is the best DMC to date...\n\nIf i had anything negative to say it would only be that some of the dialog could be dialed back a bit..
