DmC Devil May Cry improvements over the original Devil May Cry

Whilst Ninja Theory’s DmC Devil May Cry comes under flak for many things, one has to look back at the source material and contemplate some of the things that are often overlooked nowadays.  The video is not a direct comparison (uses the HD Collection version for starters), or an indication of which game is better – or takes into account improvements with the other three games before Ninja Theory’s reboot – it does highlight some of the annoying elements, that at the time were bearable and perhaps now would be frowned upon. Take a look at this DmC Devil May Cry improvements over the original video. Were the annoyances that bad, or just a sign of the PS2 times?

    The character dante of the reboot looks like a sissy from the twilight saga. Seriously its hideous but I will give it a ago for the sake of playing.

    The old one had music this one seems eerie quite and lifeless and the battle is made easy and aided whereas the previous titles relied on pure skill to deliver satisfaction

    Some people suggest that I have not played DMC before the HD Update version. They make the assumption simply because of this comparison video which they don’t agree with. Well sorry guys, I’ve been gaming since the ZX81 then the ZX Spectrum 48K. Go look it up, it was made by Sinclair in the 80s.

    This is merely a look at the first game of the series and the most recent. Not a head to head, not to make DmC appear better, no hidden agenda, just a look at the differences and improvements the latest game has over its originator. The reason why 99% of people don’t see this and get butt hurt is because they don’t bother to read.

    Seriously? Comparing with the FIRST game? DMC3 has all these improvements minus the loading screen issue. Worst comparison-video ever.

      Except DMC 3 isn’t the first game in the series so not a good comparison for looking at the earliest and newest.

        That is not what I am saying. The problem with this video is that all it shows is how little improvements DmC has made since DMC3.

        What I’d like to see is a video were one lists all the completely new improvements that has not been seen before in a DMC game. Things that will make DmC stand out amongst the other DMC games.

        Now there’s something that could be a good video.

          Judging by the fans, I don’t think there could ever be a “good” DmC video.
