Devil May Cry 5 Review! Devil May Cry, one of the most established series in the world of video games, was able to reach a certain quality standard without any doubt (except for the second game). Particularly with the first game, the series that changed some of the basics of action games in the video game world, left a perfect taste in the mouths with its third and fourth game. Finally, with the DmC: Devil May Cry, the series was entrusted to the British by Capcom. But when Devil May Cry fans reacted too much to the appearance of the new Dante, the DmC: Devil May Cry was not included in the main series, even if the game was of good quality.
Capcom, with the Devil May Cry 5 announced at the last E3 show that he will continue his story in the fourth game and wants to bring the attention of the old and new generation of players around. Thanks to Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom achieved the same goal for the Devil May Cry brand. As the main character, other than Dante, Nero, who we know from the fourth game, introduced the character, this time with a character who has a direct impact on the story of the series.
In the story, Devil comes to May Cry as a customer and V is the third playable character. Unlike Dante and Nero, V, which shows its difference with its distant combat ability, I can say that it suits the series. I would like to underscore that if you felt a coldness against the character when Capcom gave the main character Nero instead of Dante in the fourth game, it wasn’t in V. Devil May Cry series, which accepts a new character quite difficult compared to other series of games, has overcome this obstacle with V thanks to the fifth game (due to lack of leading role). At the beginning of the game you start with the Nero V character, the adventure is included later. The idea that the character cannot be solved with his mysterious manners will always betray you in the corner of your mind.
I would say that the Nico character, who recently joined the series, is a good match for Nero. He was added to the game as a master character in developing fiery and piercing weapons. Even earlier in the game, when he revealed where he got his talent, Nico could surprise the players who followed the series closely. To summarize the head of the story; Recognizing that this mission is very different from other demon-hunting missions after accepting V’s duty, Dante encounters a powerful enemy in a way he does not expect. While V and Dante are involved in the game’s main story, Nero is the late character in the party. I don’t want to give much detail about the story in this section, and when you play the game, first-hand observation of the story will increase the pleasure of the game.
When we go to the storytelling of Devil May Cry 5, you can notice from the first moment that we enter the game that Capcom gives more importance to the story for the first time in the series. The Devil May Cry series, which doesn’t have much tangible story depth yet, presented us with an immersive scenario with its fifth game. Besides, the developers who want you to play other games to understand the story have made a beauty for the players who are going to enter the series. Who is who with a short video about what happened in the Devil May Cry series from the past to the present? What? You can learn.
Instead of putting a background story into each character, it does not change the way the story progresses if you want to play the script with a different character. The game’s multi-character system, thanks to this feature co-op gamers also added developers, other players allowed to be included in our game. But I would like to underline that this mechanics has not undermined the game in any way. As you fight anywhere, the character you don’t control at once is involved in the fight and can help you and disappear. It is also worth noting that this co op mechanics is not real-time. If you play the game online, the game takes your ghost data and interacts with other players.
Devil May Cry 5’s character development system followed the path of old games. Again, while collecting Red Orb, our character can get new skills, while at the same time we can improve our weapons. On the character development screen, Nero gives a lot of choice to the player. Nero, who lost the devil’s arm in the story, is filling this gap with Nico’s Devil Breakers. Devil Breaker system, in terms of gameplay, depending on the Nero can colorize the game easily. More than we expected the game to integrate Devil Breaker Capcom, each designed to be unique. You can change Nero’s abilities with different Devil Breaker options.
It is also possible to find these items while fighting. The Devil Breakers, which can be purchased from Nico with Red Orbs, can be broken apart when used too much. Devil Breaker comes in. However, you can only set this order at the top of the section. When you get into fights, it’s impossible to change this order. If you don’t like it, Devil Breaker can be shredded with a single button and you can switch to the next Devil Breaker.
As for the combo, Nero has more heavyweight (according to Dante) animations as in the fourth game. In the fourth game he was able to use his devil arm to shoot the enemies. In the new game, we encounter a similarity of this mechanics. Nero, instead of being fast against the enemies, is the ideal character to start the game. The developers also wanted to give Nero to the top of the game.
Moving to the new V character of the series, I was quite amazed by the fact that he was able to do some serious damage compared to the other two characters. Easy to play, V has two special animals called Griffon and Shadow. While Griffon can damage the remote, Shadow can go to the enemy and attack them in series if you order them. You can also call Nightmare, the third devil of V, with a single click when you’re in a lot of trouble. This giant creature, which can give a lot of damage when it comes to the battlefield, helps you for a short time and disappears. Thanks to Griffon, another striking talent of V was the reading of books. V, who reads poetry during the war, can manipulate and defuse some enemies. But while reading a book, It is also worth mentioning that it is more difficult to avoid attacks. And since Griffon and Shadow are his own private cannons, you should use these two minions very carefully. If these two helpers suffer heavy damage, they leave the battlefield for a short time. V’s character development screen is not as detailed as Nero. Thanks to the Red Orbs we collect, the creatures we control have new abilities.
The third playable character is included in the story and many later in the story it is manipulated by the favorite of Dmc fans. The most beloved character in the series, Dante, has an important weight in the game. Dante, who seemed like a master to everyone, was the character I really enjoyed playing with. Old Devil May Cry fans familiar with the combo system manipulating the fifth game, Dante divided into different styles. With the help of D-Pads, you can change the character’s ability to display on the battlefield.
In addition to using the sword itself as a close fight kicking and using his fists. When you have Dante, who has a fairly fluent combat mechanics, to your control, you never want to leave it again. Likewise, Dante’s development has been based on opening new talent, as in other games. Finally, the most interesting aspect of the game mechanics was a special assistant added to the game. When you activate this assistant, you can make the game’s combos easier. When you activate this feature in the game which is already easy, the enemies you come across become a sandbag.
Aside from the mechanics of gameplay, it is useful to say that the game is successful in technical terms. Devil May Cry 5, which works at high FPS value on console platforms, has been very nice especially in intermediate scene graphics. The engine of the game, which uses the power of RE Engine to the fullest, unfortunately lags behind the previous games. Although DmC: Devil May Cry was a game that was not included in the main series, it was a very rich production in terms of the music played during the fight. But in the fifth game, the developers have shown a little bit more stingy about music.
The most disturbing side of the game is the camera angles that are a Devil May Cry classic. The series, which could not correct the camera angle in each game, could not overcome this problem in its fifth game. Because the game flows quickly, sometimes the camera angle is distorted, and instead of seeing the scene you are fighting, you may have to see the back of the beast you beat. I’ve encountered almost every part of the game with such camera-angle errors. I should also underline that the game interface screen disturbs some players. The effects of broken glass pieces added to the in-game interface distract some players, even if not everyone.
At the end, Devil May Cry 5 was a production of old and new generation players under one roof. With its fast and immersive nature, the game, which has the potential to tie the new generation of players, is also true to its essence, so it won’t hurt the bone mass. If you are a fan of Devil May Cry, I suggest you never miss this game.
