Hey there gamers, this is Tyuno The Great. Recently, Capcom released a free demo of their upcoming reboot, DmC: Devil May Cry, for the Xbox 306 and PlayStation 3. I got the chance to play and experience the demo and I wanted to share my thoughts about the demo of DmC.
First off, the demo of Devil May Cry contain two mission that players can choose from. The missions are “Under Watch” and “Secret Ingredient”. Players can also choose what difficultly they want to play on. The choices were Human (Easy), Demon Slayer (Normal), and Nephilim (Hard). Once the player complete the demo, the player will have the option of a fourth and hardest difficult level called Son of Sparda. The first mission is called “Under Watch”. This is more of a tutorial mission, it teaches the basic game controls and combos. This mission also gives a very brief backstory of who Dante is and is role in the game. The second mission is called “Secret Ingredient”. This is the boss battle mission. This is more shorter than the “Under Watch” mission. All you have to do is to fight and beat the boss on the level.
After playing the demo, there were parts that I like and parts that I dislike. I love the soundtrack of DmC. The Gothic rock really fit into the theme of the game. The voice acting is well done and visuals are amazing. I like how the environment looks very dark. The controls and combos can be a little tricky at first, but if you play the demo more you will learn the controls and combos more easily. The number one problem that I had with the demo are the cameras. I find it difficult to spot all the enemies on the screen. The enemies can attack me off screen and I wouldn’t be able to see them. I wish there was a better targeting function that can target lock all the enemies and focus the cameras on the target.
Overall, I had a ton of fun with the DmC demo. I highly recommend downloading it and give it a try. If you are a fan of Devil May Cry, you will love this game. I hope they fix the camera problem in the final product. I know I will be getting DmC: Devil May Cry on January 15, 2013. That’s all I have for now. If you have your own opinion about the DmC demo, please tell me in the comments section. Also you can find The Tyuno Project on Twitter and Facebook. Until next time, “Be Easy and Stay Epic!”
