Devil May Cry 5

Critics Consensus (Play It)

In Devil May Cry 5, Capcom has energized a classic series like never before, pushing the genre forward in a brilliant and imaginative, albeit imperfect romp.

Game Info

Years have passed since the legions of hell have set foot in this world, but now a new demonic invasion has begun, and humanity’s last hope will rest in the hands of three lone demon hunters, each offering a radically different play style. United by fate and a thirst for vengeance, these demon hunters will have to face their demons if they hope to survive.

9.5/10

Devil May Cry 5’s trio of outstanding combat styles set a new high bar for the series, and its mysterious story keeps things interesting along the way.

90/100

Three great characters and a beautiful, fluid combat system make this a must-buy for hack-and-slash fans.

Capcom returns to its trusted formula for something that plays like a outrageously pretty PS2 game – and that’s a very good thing.
