The king of Japanese slashers is back! And if someone had doubts about the upcoming game Devil May Cry 5, then Western critics gathered to dispel all the skepticism of the fans and almost unanimously call DMC 5 "a real gift for fans of the genre." We have read the first reviews on Devil May Cry 5 and are ready to share the final impressions of the critics about the new part in the cult series.
To date, the largest number of reviews on Devil May Cry 5 has been released for the Xbox One version of the game, which received an average rating of 88 points. An impressive result, considering that, according to estimates, the slasher is inferior only to the first game in the series, released exclusively for the Playstation 2 in 2001. Devil May Cry 5 in the Playstation 4 version is slightly lower - 86 points, and at the same time, the PC version was received with the greatest enthusiasm - 91 points, however, only based on 13 reviews, so we will not be surprised if in the future the score will be equal to the console versions.
In general, almost all game journalists agreed that the strongest side of the project is an effective, variable combat system and spectacular cut scenes. On the downside is the often mediocre level design, storyline and third playable hero Vee. his fighting style is significantly different from that of Nero and Dante, which causes the tempo of the game to break down a bit.
Briefs from the first Devil May Cry 5 reviews:
Game Rant - 100
From the stunning visuals to the spectacular combat system, Devil May Cry 5 is the ultimate action game without any discount. The developers put all their energy into creating non-stop and immersive battles that test players' abilities and force them to build complex series of combos, which in general creates the feeling of playing at a steady pace throughout the game. There is not a single boring moment in Devil May Cry 5, so we dare say that this is probably the best game in the series.

Answering the question of which game is the best in the series has become much easier with the release of Devil May Cry 5. The combat system is indisputably the best in the series, the plot perfectly balances between 3 characters and maintains high dynamics, offering generous rewards for exploring the game world and of course, the sheer number of challenges, tricks to unlock, and the upcoming free Bloody Palace add-on ensure that you have countless reasons to start replaying Devil May Cry 5. Welcome back Dante and Nero.

Devil May Cry 5 is one of the most stylish and diverse hack-n-slash games in recent years. Dante's return has never been more impressive, and Nero continues to assert his claim to being the tough and convincing demon hunter. In addition, Capcom's new game is perhaps the best presentation of the RE Engine.
GameSpace - 80
Devil May Cry 5 is a good game and I wholeheartedly recommend it to players who are not indifferent to Capcom's slasher series. But for those who expect something more than spectacular battles for a dozen hours, I suggest waiting for the sale.
TrueGaming - 70
When Devil May Cry 5 does something right, it always stumbles over other aspects of the game. Good graphics and interesting innovations in the gameplay are diluted with a weak and uninteresting plot with repetitive moments, as a result, leaving the player with a mediocre experience.
CGMagazine - 60
The approach of the developers when creating Devil May Cry 5 is free of any risks and this at a time when other slashers are trying to surprise and reach new heights in the genre.
Not all gaming publications praise the new Capcom project, but one thing you can be sure of, if you like the past parts of the series and you are waiting for first-class non-stop action, you will hardly regret buying the game. As a reminder, the release of Devil May Cry 5 will take place tomorrow - March 8th.
