Swedish magazine LEVEL has reviewed DmC Devil May Cry and they have given it a great 9/10 score.
The review praises the game a lot and has mentioned that there is a lot of fun variation in the level design: Dante swings between platforms, avoids incoming trains and explores vertical sewers. The multiple stage transformations throughout the game is well integrated in the story that is being told.
Ninja Theory is taking a more serious approach than Capcom in the story-department. The controls in DmC isn’t as good as in the previous DMC-games – it’s much better. It has also been mentioned that DmC veterans will feel at home and there’s a high level of skill required to unleash chain combos.
Basically all the changes has been for the better good; combining Devil May Cry’s deep, sophisticated action with the modern action-adventure stage-design.
The review is extremely positive and it looks like Ninja Theory have nailed the game. It will be released on January 15th for the PS3 and Xbox 360; and on January 25th for the PC.
