A great gaming stocking filler right here. At £5.50 DMC: Devil May Cry is well worth a look at half the price most other retailers are flogging it for. Even if the recipient doesn't like it, you've not wasted much money and you know not to bother buying them nice things in the future. A win, win situation!
It was a relief to see that Dante hadn't turned into the complete prick that the trailers depicted him to be in Ninja Theory's reboot. Admittedly, he's still a bit of a douche. The game takes a while to give you all the decent weapons but once it does, the combo variety on offer is excellent. Angel and Demon chains enable you to to pull enemies towards you or you to them, making aerial combos a breeze. Some truly awful platforming sections hold the game back from greatness and with the game only selling half of what DMC4 did at launch Dante's future isn't guaranteed despite the high review scores. All because of a haircut.
