After an 11 year wait - and one questionable reboot - Devil May Cry as you know, love and remember it is back. With old-school Dante back to the fore, DMC 4's demon-armed phenom Nero and newcomer V playing like no other character in action game history, overall critical reception is through the roof.
Best of all, Capcom have focused almost all their attention on setting a new benchmark for high-octane, third-person combat.
DMC 5 looks positively gorgeous, and might just be the best looking game of the generation so far, but they redefined action with the original DMC in 2001 and this new game's endlessly modular combos are something else entirely.
One minute you're electrocuting groups of foes before busting out a beam cannon for the remainder, the next you're upside down in mid-air, spinning 1080 degrees as you rain down gunfire from above. The grin on your face spans ear to ear, and the overall feeling is a veteran developer executing on their craft in a way we've never seen before.
If you've picked up a copy of DMC 5, let's make sure you're getting the most out of it.
