This game is the evolution to DMC. While DMC was fun to play it was always very boring story and character wise. DmC improves upon DMC's mistakes and makes even the combat alot better.
Graphics 9/10 Looks really good, cannot give 10/10 because that goes to the DmC PC port with 60fps. Even though this game on PS3 is 30fps it really feels like 60fps.
Story 8/10 Really good story, with fleshed out characters and understandable motivations. NOT LIKE DMC3 VERGIL: I WAAANNNT MORRE POOOWWWARRRR! The story itself is fairly simple though, which is not such a bad thing, since DMC4 story is a mess.
Gameplay 9/10 This game is nearly perfect and blows games like Bayonetta, Ninja Gaiden and Metal Gear Rising out of the water. The switching from angel to devil mode works really well and feels really innovative and natural. I would have liked a few side gameplays like for example a turret section or a chase scene with a motorbike.
