Three great characters and a beautiful, fluid combat system make this a must-buy for hack-and-slash fans.
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.
DMC5 proves the series can still be brilliant and imaginative without compromising its longest-held traditions.

Chaining together impressive combos is as fun as ever, though hopping among three characters makes it hard to hone your expertise
I'm going to be playing Devil May Cry 5 weeks from now in the short term and years from now long term. This is the sort of fine-tuned wacky action game the genre deserves.
Capcom returns to its trusted formula for something that plays like a outrageously pretty PS2 game - and that's a very good thing.

There is a demon, and I’m going to kill it. With style. I’ll shoot and slash and somersault, chaining together increasingly outlandish combos while listening to electro-metal where I only catch the odd word like ‘sword’ or ‘death’.

High-octane challenges in this irresistible romp have resurrected an action series that's been dormant for over a decade

Devil May Cry 5 is 99 percent about doing things that are totally sweet and looking totally sweet while doing them. There's no thematic depth waiting beneath its bombastic, blood-drenched glamour and its vulcanizing, improvisational violence choreography

11 years after we last saw Dante, Nero & Co., Devil May Cry 5 shows that the series is in fine form with one of its best installments yet.
Few games are as endearing in their madness as Devil May Cry 5. It's deeply old-school and made for fans first, but its new character will entertain newcomers and keep them coming back for more.Jacob Ridley
I really couldn’t be happier with how this game turned out, and I’m a thousand times excited for where Capcom might take the franchise next.
